posted on 2015-06-23 00:40 EDT by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the School-Live! (Gakkō Gurashi!) television anime announced on Friday that Maon Kurosaki will contribute her ninth single "Harmonize Clover" as the ending theme song for the anime. Kurosaki has previously sung themes for A Certain Magical Index II, High School of the Dead, Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom - Dawn of the Shinsengumi, Jormungand Perfect Order, Strike the Blood, Tokyo Ravens, The Fruit of Grisaia, and more.
NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan will release the CD of the single on August 19. It will come in both a regular edition and a limited edition, which will include the music video for the song, a "making of" for the music video, and the television commercial for the single. Both editions will contain the "Harmonize Clover" song, as well as two tracks with as-yet unannounced titles, and the instrumental versions of the songs. The limited edition will cost 1,800 yen (around US$14.50), while the regular edition will cost 1,200 yen (around US$9.60).
The anime is based on Norimitsu Kaihō (Nitroplus) and Sadoru Chiba's Gakkō Gurashi! (School-Live!) manga, which began in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine in 2012. Houbunsha shipped the fifth compiled volume on March 12 in Japan.
The story of the manga revolves around girls who decide to stay over at school: the energetic Yuki Takeya, the shovel-loving Kurumi, spacey school adviser Megu, level-headed underclassman Mii-kun, and Rii-san, who brings everyone together. However, through mysterious circumstances, the girls find themselves the final survivors in a zombie attack, and continue to live at the school.
The main cast includes (from left to right):
- Ai Kayano as Megumi "Megu-nee" Sakura
- M.A.O as Yūri "Rii-san" Wakasa
- Inori Minase as Yuki Takeya
- Ari Ozawa as Kurumi Ebisuzawa
- Rie Takahashi as Miki "Mii-kun" Naoki
Masaomi Ando (White Album 2) is directing the anime at Lerche (Assassination Classroom, Carnival Phantasm). Nitroplus is credited with producing the scripts. The original manga's writer, Norimitsu Kaihō (Gunslinger Stratos) is in charge of the series scripts, while Haruko Iizuka (Little Busters!, Tamayura) is designing the characters.
The show will premiere on July 9 in Japan.
Yen Press announced earlier this year that it licensed the manga for release in North America. The first volume is set to ship in November.
