The upcoming zombie apocalypse moe anime (yes, you read that right), Gakkou Gurashi, is about to make its premiere this 5 July 2015. A new key visual for the anime has finally been released, and it features the four main characters who we introduced in our previous article, Kurumi “Rumi” Ebisuzawa (CV: Ari Ozawa), Yuuri Wakasa (CV: M.A.O.), Yuki Takeya (CV: Inori Minase), and Miki Naoki (CV: Rie Takahashi).


Also revealed is the music video for Gakkou Gurashi’s OP song, “Friend Shitai“, which is performed by the anime’s four main seiyuus, Ari Ozawa (Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun’s Chiyo Sakura), M.A.O. (Brynhildr in the Darkness’ Kazumi Schlierenzauer), Inori Minase (Is the Order a Rabbit?’s Chino Kafuu), and Rie Takahashi (Shirobako’s Akane Uchida). “Friend Shitai” will be released as a single this 29 July 2015.

The anime will be based on zombie apocalypse manga by Norimitsu Kaihou (Nitroplus) and Sadoru Chiba, and will follow the four main characters who mysteriously survive a zombie apocalypse after deciding to stay over at their school. After the apocalypse, they decide to continue living in their school.


Lerche (Assassination Classroom) will be responsible for animating Gakkou Gurashi, which will be directed by White Album 2 director, Masaomi Ando. The scripts for the anime will be created by one of the manga’s creators, Norimitsu Kaihou (Nitroplus) while The Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat’s Haruko Iizuki is responsible for the character design.
