The Japanese publishing conglomerate Kadokawa announced on Monday that the 10th volume of Shinichi Kimura's original Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? (Is This a Zombie?) light novel series will bundle its second original anime DVD in a limited edition next April. The included "Episode 0" for the upcoming second anime season will be about 24 minutes long. The limited edition will also come with an exclusive illustrated book cover and a tall case to contain the DVD.
The first anime season based on Shinichi Kimura's original light novel series aired in Japan from January to March. The eighth light novel volume bundled the franchise's first anime DVD in June. Also that month, Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Age magazine announced that a second anime season has been green-lit.
In the story, a normal high school boy named Ayumu Aikawa gets killed during a spate of mysterious serial killings. However, Ayumu is resurrected as a zombie by a necromancer girl named "Eu" (Eucliwood Hellscythe), who Ayumu had just met before dying. Ayumu then accidentally deprives the magical girl Haruna of her powers, so she demands that Ayumu take her place in fighting her nemesis Megalo.
