posted on by Alex Mateo
HIDIVE announced on Thursday that it will begin streaming the live-action film of Norimitsu Kaihō and Sadoru Chiba's School-Live! (Gakkō Gurashi!) manga on November 18 at 12:00 p.m. EST in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, Nordic countries, the Netherlands, Spain, and Portugal.
Sentai Filmworks describes the story:
In this live-action adaptation of the smash-hit anime series SCHOOL-LIVE!, members of the School Living Club must use whatever resources they can find at school to survive the ravages of a zombie outbreak—but not all of the club's members are aware of the undead danger lurking just around the corner...
Issey Shibata (Real Onigokko) directed and penned the script for the film.
The film's cast members are all members of subgroups of the idol group Last Idol, which include Nanami Abe (LaLuce) as Kurumi Ebisuzawa, Midori Nagatsuki (LaLuce, Chou Cream Rockets) as Yuki Takeya, Wakana Majima (Someday Somewhere) as Yūri Wakasa, and Rio Kiyohara (Someday Somewhere) as Miki Naoki.
Gakko*** School-Live! Another Story (Gakkō XXX ~Mō Hitotsu no Gakkō Gurashi!), the four-episode live-action mini-series prequel to the live-action film debuted on Amazon Prime Video in Japan in January 2019. HIDIVE is streaming the prequel.
The mini-series is an original story starring Hinako Sakurai, Rena Takeda, Ei Morisako, Mio Yūki, and Nonoka Ono. The story centers around various students of Megurigaoka Private High School, including a pair of third-year students who were planning to enter a competition with their documentary film, two second-year students who are childhood friends but who have a strained relationship, and a third-year student who worries about having different views from her friends. Ono reprises her role from the film as the teacher Megumi ("Megu-nee").
