It’s official, folks: the School Living Club is taking a trip away from zombie-ridden Japan, over to zombie-ridden America!
Earlier today, Sentai Filmworks announced that they’re producing a dub for School-Live! (Gakkō Gurashi!). The company broke the news on Twitter, via a short teaser video.

As of now, no details on casting or specific release dates have been announced.
School-Live!, which is based on Norimitsu Kaihō and Sadoru Chiba’s manga of the same name, originally aired during the Summer broadcast season. Masaomi Andō (Scum’s Wish, Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse) directed the project at Lerche, with Haruko Iizuka (Little Busters!, Tamayura) providing character designs. Co-creator Norimitsu Kaihō (Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School: Despair Arc, Gunslinger Stratos: The Animation) was in charge of series composition.
Crunchyroll streamed the show on their digital platform as it aired. They describe School-Live! as:
SCHOOL-LIVE! Focuses on the lives of 4 girls who decide to stay over at school: Yuki Takeya, Kurumi Ebisuzawa, Yuri Wakasa, and Miki Naoki. Along with the school adviser Megumi Sakura, they suddenly find themselves to be the final survivors of a zombie attack, and continue to live and survive at the school.
