Earlier today, the official Girls’ Last Tour anime website announced that a spin-off show is in the works. The series, titled Girls’ Last Class, will place lead characters Chito and Yuuri in an alternate universe, where they’ll attend various classes in school.
Girls’ Last Class will launch on Kadokawa’s YouTube channel starting October 6. New episodes will be added every Friday, with each chapter set to stream for two weeks.
The Girls’ Last Tour anime hits Japanese TV on October 6. Sentai Filmworks currently holds the rights to the show, and will stream it on Anime Strike in the United States.
Takaharu Ozaki (Persona 5 the Animation -The Day Breakers-) will direct Girls’ Last Tour at White Fox, with Mai Toda (Matoi the Sacred Slayer, Holy Knight) providing character designs. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, Yatterman Night) is in charge of series composition.
The series will star Inori Minase as Chito and Yurika Kubo as Yuuri.
Kadokawa describes the title as:
The popular running dystopian fantasy manga from the web comic portal Kurage Bunch will be adapted into an anime!
Long time has passed since the prosperity and civilization of the humanity has collapsed. Most of the humans and animals have died and the world is facing its end.
The complex city structure resembles a labyrinth. No one is maintaining the machines anymore, so they also stop functioning one after another.
When did everything end, or since when has everything started ending? This story takes place in such a world which everyone has even stopped thinking about that.
Two girls, Chito and Yuuri, are wandering this world with their vehicle Kettenkrad.
The beginning of a heartwarming story in the apocalyptic world…
Tsukumizu’s Girls’ Last Tour manga kicked off in on Shinchosha’s Kurage Bunch website in 2014. To date, five compiled volumes have been released, with the most recent hitting retailers on September 8. Yen Press currently holds the domestic rights to the manga series.
