July 7 marked the start of Tanabata, also known as the Star Festival, which celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi. It’s a special day, and many anime series get in on the fun with art and other festivities. One that joined in this week was The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten, which released a special visual with Mahiru and Amane dressed up as the deities themselves.
Check out the delightful piece of art above.
The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten is currently set to premiere sometime in 2023. Kenichi Imaizumi (Brynhildr in the Darkness) is directing the anime, which was announced back in January, with Keiichiro Ochi (The Quintessential Quintuplets) on scripts, Takayuki Noguchi (Queen’s Blade: Rebellion) on character designs, and Moe Hyuga (Steins;Gate 0) composing music for the project No.9 production.
Cast members include Taito Ban as Amane Fujimiya, Manaka Iwami as Mahiru Shiina, Taku Yashiro as Itsuki Akasawa, and Haruka Shiraishi as Chitose Shirakawa.
Yen Press publishes the series in English and sums up the story:

They’ve almost never spoken—until the day he sees her in distress on a rainy day and lends her his umbrella. To return the favor, she offers him help around the house, and a relationship slowly begins to blossom as the distance between them closes…
