The Drifting Classroom manga creator Kazuo Umezu added some new students to his renown horror story. The idols Momoiro Clover Z were drawn as elementary school girls in Umezu's signature style for the jacket cover of the group's newest single, "Anta Tobashi Sugi!!"

The single is the idols' second new song out of five planned monthly releases. "Anta Tobashi Sugi!!" is a cover of punk group GARLICBOYS' track. The punk-rock group collaborated with Momoiro Clover Z for the cover and also perform during the chorus.

"Anta Tobashi Sugi!!" will be included on Momoiro Clover Z's self-titled fifth studio album slated for release on May 17, 2019.

Momoiro Clover Z has appeared in multiple crossover collaborations, including Weekly Shōnen Magazine's sports manga, the rock band KISS, Dragon Ball Z, Fist of the North Star, Sailor Moon, and Pokemon.

Umezu's The Drifting Classroom debuted in Weekly Shonen Sunday in 1972. The classic horror manga follows sixth-grader Sho Takamatsu and his friends as they try to discern what happened to them when their elementary school is swallowed after a strange earthquake and lands in what appears to be a barren wasteland. The manga won the 20th Shogakukan Manga Award in general category in 1974. It was adapted into a live-action film in 1987.
