We’re being spoiled rotten today with light novel news out of GA Bunko’s New Year Anime Festival, which now includes the announcement that The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten is getting a TV anime adaptation!
A teaser visual and trailer were revealed, along with main cast and staff.
Narrated by Manaka Iwami (Fruits Basket) as Mahiru Shiina, the trailer previews her first meeting with Amane Fujimiya, played by Taito Ban (Pretty Boy Detective Club), and the budding romance between them:
Taku Yashiro (Horimiya) and Haruka Shiraishi (Golden Kamuy) have also been cast as Itsuki Akazawa and Chitose Shirakawa, respectively.

Yen Press, who publishes the light novel’s official English version, describes the series as:
Mahiru is a beautiful girl whose classmates all call her an “angel.” Not only is she a star athlete with perfect grades—she’s also drop-dead gorgeous. Amane, an average guy and self-admitted slob, has never thought much of the divine beauty, despite attending the same school. Everything changes, however, when he happens to see Mahiru sitting alone in a park during a rainstorm. Thus begins the strange relationship between this incredibly unlikely pair!
Kenichi Imaizumi (After School Dice Club) is directing the adaptation at studio project No.9, with series composition by Keiichirō Ōchi (The Quintessential Quintuplets), character design by Takayuki Noguchi (Higehiro: After Being Rejected, I Shaved and Took in a High School Runaway) and music by Moe Hyūga (O Maidens in Your Savage Season).
