The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten Release Date (Estimate)
Countdown to January 4, 2023 at 11:00 AM (UTC)
The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten is confirmed to air on January 2023. Though, the staff hasn’t revealed the exact date yet.
The series was announced in January 2022. Four months later, they revealed that the anime would premiere in 2023.
The fans thought it was still in mid-2023 or even late 2023 when the series would finally air. But, in October, the staff announced that the series would take off on January 2023.
Project No.9 studio really surprised the fans out there. Possibly because they only have three projects in 2022. In addition, the last anime they released in 2021 was aired in June. It gave them plenty of time to plan the upcoming anime of 2022.
Can it be counted as a rushed project, though? Let’s talk about the trailer.

That PV was released at the same time as the broadcast schedule announcement in October 2022.
The expectation of the visual animation has excited the fans from the teaser PV released in January 2022. But the PV, this time, has a clear voice line for both main characters.
There are four cast members that have been revealed so far. But, looking at the manga, this anime has minimal characters to begin with. The VAs are as follows:
- Iwami Manaka as Shiina Mahiru
- Yashiro Taku as Akazawa Itsuki
- Ban Taito as Fujimiya Amane
- Shiraishi Haruka as Shirakawa Chitose
The new director in the anime industry, Wang Lihua, leads the production at Project No.9 studio.
Oochi Keiichiro (5-toubun no Hanayome) oversees the series composition, while Hyuuga Moe (Steins; Gate 0) is in charge of the music.
The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten Story
Amane Fujimiya is an apathetic boy who is poor at organizing his belongings and generally taking care of himself. This leads him to have a poor quality of life.
On the contrary, his classmate and next-door neighbor, Mahiru Shiina, is an expert in caring for herself.
Alas, because their personalities are so different, they never interact with each other.
Until the day Amane sees Mahiru sitting on the swings alone on rainy days. Unable to stand seeing her getting wet, he lends her an umbrella.
To return the favor, Mahiru wants to help him do some chores. From that moment, their relationship begins to bloom.
