posted on by Karen Ressler
The anime is based on Norimitsu Kaihō (Nitroplus) and Sadoru Chiba's School-Live! (Gakkō Gurashi!) manga, which began in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine in 2012. The story revolves around girls who live at school: the energetic Yuki Takeya, the shovel-loving Kurumi, level-headed underclassman Mii-kun, and Rii-san, who brings everyone together. They decide to stay at school because [Highlight white text to read spoilers for the anime's first episode] they are the final survivors in a zombie attack.
Masaomi Andō (White Album 2) directed the anime at Lerche (Assassination Classroom, Carnival Phantasm). Nitroplus is credited with producing the scripts. The original manga's writer, Norimitsu Kaihō (Gunslinger Stratos) handled the series scripts, while Haruko Iizuka (Little Busters!, Tamayura) designed the characters.
