Japanese manga School-Live! is finally going to have a continuation of its story. Fans of this series can catch new chapters this year.
According to Anime News Network, School-Live!, which is also known as Gakkou Gurashi!, will finally get a sequel.
This was announced over at the official Twitter account for Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara magazines. And as revealed, the creators have titled it as Gakkou Gurashi! ~Otayori~.
When is the sequel coming?
The wait for the School-Live! sequel isn’t going to be that long. In fact, it’s slated to start releasing next month already.
The manga series will be in the next issue of Manga Time Kirara Forward starting Wednesday, June 24. It’s going to tell the story of what happened after the events from the ending of the predecessor.
Is there an anime TV adaptation?
School-Live! is written by Nitroplus‘ Norimitsu Kaihō and illustrated by Sadoru Chiba. They launched the title in the July 2012 issue of the same magazine with 12 volumes.
Not long after, the comics was adapted into a TV anime series with 12 episodes for its first season. It started airing episodes from July 2015 and finished in September of the same year.
Popular anime streaming website Crunchyroll then added the title in their roster as it was airing at that time.
After the series ended, fans started wondering if there’s going to be a season 2. There are no details yet on a follow-up but it may potentially still happen.
It was found out that the first season only covered the story arcs found in the first six volumes of the manga comics.
This means that there are still six more that can be potentially used as a material for season 2. And with a manga sequel coming up, the TV series may be up and running again.
School-Live! accumulated a good number of followers that last year, they produced a live-action film for a prequel mini-series.
It’s titled as Gakko XXX ~Mo Hitotsu no Gakko Gurashi! and it dropped on Amazon Prime Video on January 25, 2019.
