Actor plays upperclassman character in film opening in Japan on January 25

The staff for the live-action film of Norimitsu Kaihō and Sadoru Chiba's School-Live! (Gakkō Gurashi!) manga shared a series of stills for the film on Thursday. The stills feature scenes with actor Daichi Kaneko, who is playing the "sempai" (upperclassman) character on whom Kurumi has a crush.

The staff had revealed seven other stills last month.

Issey Shibata (Real Onigokko) is directing and penning the script for the film. The movie will open in Japan on January 25, after a delay from fall 2018.

The cast members, who are all members of subgroups of the idol group Last Idol, include:

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

Nonoka Ono plays their teacher Megumi ("Megu-nee").

Kaihō and Chiba launched the manga in Manga Time Kirara Forward in 2012, and Houbunsha published the manga's 10th compiled volume in Japan on June 12.

Yen Press is releasing the manga in English, and the company published the ninth compiled volume last December. The 10th volume is slated to ship on February 19. 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 in June 2017 with an English dub. HIDIVE is also streaming the series with English subtitles and with the English dub.
