The April issue of Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine is announcing the cast, staff, and summer premiere of the television anime of Norimitsu Kaihō (Nitroplus) and Sadoru Chiba’s Gakkō Gurashi! (School-Live!) manga on Tuesday.
The cast includes:
• Inori Minase as Yuki Takeya
• Ari Ozawa as Kurumi Ebisuzawa
• M.A.O as Yūri “Rii-san” Wakasa
• Rie Takahashi as Miki “Mii-kun” Naoki
Masaomi Ando (White Album 2) is directing the anime at Lerche (Assassination Classroom, Carnival Phantasm). Nitroplus is credited with producing the scripts. The original manga’s writer, Norimitsu Kaihō (Gunslinger Stratos) is in charge of the series scripts, while Haruko Iizuka (Little Busters!, Tamayura) is designing the characters.
The series will premiere this summer.
The story of the manga revolves around girls who decide to stay over at school: the energetic Yuki Takeya, the shovel-loving Kurumi, spacey school adviser Megu, level-headed underclassman Mii-kun, and Rii-san, who brings everyone together. However, through mysterious circumstances, the girls find themselves the final survivors in a zombie attack, and continue to live at the school.
The manga began in Manga Time Kirara Forward in 2012 with Norimitsu Kaihō from Nitroplus providing the story and Sadoru Chiba penning the art. Houbunsha shipped the fourth compiled volume of the series in Japan on July 11, and will ship the fifth compiled volume on March 12.
