An event was held today for The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten anime, which aims to adapt the light novel series of the same name by Saekisan. In addition to revealing the opening theme—which will have Masayoshi Oishi performing “Gift”—the series is officially set to premiere in Japan on January 7.

A new illustration arrived to commemorate the birthday of heroine Mahiru, which is also today! 

If you missed it, The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten has been delighting us for a while with seasonal visuals, too. 

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:

Amane lives alone in an apartment, and the most beautiful girl in school, Mahiru, lives just next door. 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…
