The stream premiered on Thursday at 10:00 a.m. EDT in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Latin America, Europe (excluding Germany and German-speaking territories), the Middle East, and North Africa.
The School-Live! anime is based on Norimitsu Kaihō (Nitroplus) and Sadoru Chiba's Gakkō Gurashi! manga, which began in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine in 2012.
The story of the manga revolves around girls who decide to stay over at school: the energetic Yuki Takeya (voiced by Inori Minase), the shovel-loving Kurumi (Ari Ozawa), spacey school adviser Megu (Ai Kayano), level-headed underclassman Mii-kun (Rie Takahashi), and Rii-san (M.A.O), 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.
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.
Sentai Filmworks licensed the series.
