The May issue of Shueisha's Ribon magazine revealed on Saturday that Emi Ishikawa's Zekkyō Gakkyū Tensei (Scary Lessons Reincarnation) manga is getting an anime special that will air on April 26. The anime will tell the "Kakurenbo Oni" (Hide-And-Seek Ogre) story from the manga.
Ishikawa's original Zekkyō Gakkyū manga follows a ghost girl named Yomi as she tells the reader various scary stories. Ishikawa began publishing the series in Shueisha's Ribon magazine in 2008, and the company published the 20th and final compiled volume in Japan in March 2015.
Ishikawa then launched the Zekkyō Gakkyū Tensei series in Ribon last June, and Shueisha published the second compiled volume (pictured at right) on March 25.
The original Zekkyō Gakkyū manga inspired a three-episode series of anime shorts that aired in 2012 inside the Oha-Suta morning variety program. The manga also inspired a live-action film that opened in Japan in June 2013.
