After being announced in late 2017, the live-action feature film adaptation of “Gakkou Gurashi” (“School Live”) is finally hitting the big screens in January 2019! The film adaptation of Norimitsu Kaihou and Sadoru Chiba’s zombie apocalypse psychological horror manga will star Nanami Abe as Kurumi Ebisuzawa, Midori Nagatsumi as Yuki Takeya, Wakana Majima as Yuri Wakasa, and Rio Kiyohara as Miki Naoki.
“School Live” follows the daily life of Yuki Takeya — a
annoyingly cheerful high school girl who lives at Megurigaoka Private High School as part of the School Living Club. She is friends with fellow clubmembers Kurumi Ebisuzawa, Yūri Wakasa, and Miki Naoki.
As the series progresses, it is learned that Yuki is a delusional school girl, believing that everything is normal and her classmates and teachers are alive, when in fact a zombie outbreak has killed most of the people in the city — if not the entire world.
