A simple model for the explanation of the muon anomalous magnetic moment was proposed by the present authors within the context of the minimal supersymmetric standard model [1, 2]: Higgs-anomaly mediation. In the setup, squarks, sleptons, and gauginos are massless at tree-level, but the Higgs doublets get large negative soft supersymmetry (SUSY) breaking masses squared mHu2≃mHd2<0 at a certain energy scale, Minp. The sfermion masses are radiatively generated by anomaly mediation and Higgs-loop effects, and gaugino masses are solely determined by anomaly mediation. Consequently, the smuons and bino are light enough to explain the muon g − 2 anomaly while the third generation sfermions are heavy enough to explain the observed Higgs boson mass. The scenario avoids the SUSY flavor problem as well as various cosmological problems, and is consistent with the radiative electroweak symmetry breaking. In this paper, we show that, although the muon g − 2 explanation in originally proposed Higgs-anomaly mediation with Minp∼ 1016 GeV is slightly disfavored by the latest LHC data, the muon g − 2 can still be explained at 1σ level when Higgs mediation becomes important at the intermediate scale, Minp∼ 1012 GeV. The scenario predicts light SUSY particles that can be fully covered by the LHC and future collider experiments. We also provide a simple realization of mHu2≃mHd2<0 at the intermediate scale.
