Live-Action School-Live! Film Is Slated for 2018
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The January 2018 issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine is announcing on Friday that the previously revealed live-action film adaptation of Norimitsu Kaihō and Sadoru Chiba's School-Live! (Gakkō Gurashi!) manga will open in Japan next year.
Kaihō and Chiba launched the manga in Manga Time Kirara Forward in 2012, and Houbunsha published the manga's ninth compiled volume in Japan on March 11. The manga went on hiatus starting in the magazine's September 2017 issue, but will return from hiatus in the February 2018 issue of Manga Time Kirara Forward on December 22.
The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime series that premiered in July 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on June 27 with an English dub. HIDIVE is also streaming the series with English subtitles and with the English dub.
