The staff of the live-action film adaptation of Norimitsu Kaihō and Sadoru Chiba's School-Live! (Gakkō Gurashi!) manga announced the film's main cast members at a Last Idol concert, which was held at Zepp DiverCity in Tokyo on Wednesday. As previously announced, the cast members are all members of subgroups of the idol group Last Idol.

Nanami Abe (LaLuce) as Kurumi Ebisuzawa

Midori Nagatsuki (LaLuce, Chou Cream Rockets) as Yuki Takeya

Wakana Majima (Someday Somewhere) as Yūri Wakasa

Rio Kiyohara (Someday Somewhere) as Miki Naoki

The adaptation is slated to open in Japan this fall. Issey Shibata (Real Onigokko) is directing the film.

Kaihō and Chiba launched the manga in Manga Time Kirara Forward in 2012, and Houbunsha published the manga's ninth compiled volume in Japan in March 2017, and the 10th volume will ship on June 12. The manga went on hiatus starting in the magazine's September 2017 issue but returned in the next issue on December 22.

Yen Press is releasing the manga in English, and the company published the ninth compiled volume on December 12. The company describes the series:

Meet the members of the School Living Club! There's the shovel-loving(?) Kurumi Ebisuzawa, the big-sister figure Yuuri Wakasa, club advisor Megumi Sakura, and last but not least, the ever-optimistic Yuki Takeya. The School Living Club is just your average after-school organization where the girls hang out, have fun...and live at school as the sole survivors of a zombie apocalypse. NBD.

The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime series that premiered in July 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on June 27 with an English dub. HIDIVE is also streaming the series with English subtitles and with the English dub.
