posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for the live-action film of Norimitsu Kaihō and Sadoru Chiba's School-Live! (Gakkō Gurashi!) manga began streaming a project promotional video on Monday. The video includes behind-the-scenes footage, staff interviews, and the film's previously revealed second trailer.
Issey Shibata (Real Onigokko) is directing and penning the script for the film. The film will open in Japan on January 25, after a delay from fall 2018. The film inspired a four-episode live-action mini-series prequel, titled Gakkō XXX ~Mō Hitotsu no Gakkō Gurashi! (School XXX - Another School-Live!), that debuted on Amazon Prime Video in Japan on January 16.

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.
