A new, completely original anime created by the dream team of MAPPA (Yuri!!! on Ice), Avex (Mr. Osomatsu), and Cygames (Uma Musume Pretty Derby) is born!

The curtain rises on this striking "new, unique zombie anime" that overcomes age, gender, and time.


Same old morning, same old music, same old self.

The normality of seven girls is shattered in an instant.

The culprit? Zombies, wriggling around even in death...

Without any say in the matter, the girls wander into the "Greatest x Worst Zombie World." They only have one wish.

"We want to live."
This is the story of the miracle these girls make a reality.
