The series follows the lives of two high school students, Hanabi Yasuraoka and Mugi Awaya, who are both secretly in love with other people. Despite their strong feelings for other individuals, Hanabi and Mugi form a sexual relationship in order to fill the void in their hearts.

As the show progresses, Hanabi and Mugi's relationship becomes more complicated. They become more emotionally attached to one another, but their physical relationship prevents them from ever fully committing to each other. Hanabi continues to pine after her childhood crush, a teacher at her school named Kanai-sensei. Meanwhile, Mugi is in love with his tutor Akane Minagawa, who is known for her promiscuous behavior.

Each episode features a range of emotions, from heartbreak to passion, and the show is not afraid to go to dark places.

One of the strongest aspects of Scum's Wish is its character development. Hanabi and Mugi are complex individuals with a range of flaws and strengths. Despite their actions being morally questionable, the show never fully condemns them for their behavior. Instead, it allows the viewer to come to their own conclusions about the characters and their actions.

The voice acting in the show is also exceptional. The main cast delivers strong performances that capture the emotional nuances of their characters. The show is heavily reliant on dialogue, and the actors are able to keep the viewer engaged even during some of the slower scenes.
