Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward January 2018 issue (pictured), which will ship on November 24, reveals that Norimitsu Kaihou and Sadoru Chiba's Gakkougurashi! will receive a live-action film. The series, which is currently on hiatus, is set to resume in the magazine's February issue on December 22.

Gakkougurashi! started its serialization in May 2012, and currently has eight compiled volumes. A TV anime adaptation produced by Lerche aired for 12 episodes in Summer 2015, with a simulcast by Crunchyroll. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime for North American distribution, and shipped the Blu-ray & DVD this June, in addition to a premium edition on September 5.

Eh. What, why? Well it's not like I don't want more gakkougurashi, but it'd be like watching Walking Dead with kids trying to be cute. What makes gakkougurashi so different is because of how well it could pull off the cuteness and shock factor (their reactions of horror or shock) in anime form. Not sure how it would work in live action, just like how would Kakegurui's ahegao faces would translate in live action form?

Like how would this even translate to live action?

It won't be that "Moe" if 3Ds stuff got involved..

More like it's just some Daily Comedy Skit from Saturday Night for Retards with crippling depression"

Not gonna lie, this has to be one of the most inappropriate anime to pick for a live-action adaptation that I could even imagine

I have no idea how this could possibly work out well

Please no... this can't end well.
I'm watching anime since 2012. I also play games, sometimes.

Don't bother me if you want to 'become friends' or things like that.
It's tiresome. I know you just want to collect some meaningless numbers.

Oh man, this is gonna be crap. The anime was awesome, though. They should do a second season instead.

Similarly. The original manga and anime were a satire on the typical "moe cute girls", so I can not imagine how this might look like with live actors.

At one hand, going with the psychological aspect of the series can work for a Live Action... but when it comes to the cute moments? I don't even know. Don't get me wrong, I like the anime and the manga... but this is more or less an double edge sword.

So are they gonna cast literal teenage girls? This is gonna be disastrous.
Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.

I live to see the day where Hidamari Sketch or Little Witch Academia get another season.

Ah, so it will be a faithful adaptation of the anime version.

A big appeal for gakkougurashi was the moe aesthetic and combining that with the whole apocalyptic setting which countered that. While I wouldn't say the show did a wholesome job at that, a live-action series doesn't seem like it would do any better. Plus with the current history of live-action anime adaptations and the whole stigma against 3D in general especially for a cutesy series like this, I can't help but expect this to flop really hard.

REALLY BRO.

I'M TRIGGERED.

They're going to give us a live action, I have no idea how that's going to work.
but NOT A SEASON 2?

I have read all the manga volumes that are published currently and the ones that will be published, and I want a season 2 :(

It was terrible as an anime, will be worse in live-action.

You know, Japan. You've got tons of manga out there that actually will translate into live-action properly. Remember Battle Royale? Rurouni Kenshin? Go that route. Hell, I'll give you some examples; Kimi no Knife, Working!!, Akumetsu, Confession, Ghost Hunt, etc. and that's just from the little I've read.

They're giving us a live-action adaptation that nobody was asking for. A second season of the anime would have been a much better choice instead.. smh

Nope. Never. Unacceptable. Those 3D girls would just ruin the "cute girls doing cute things in the middle of a zombie apocalypse" thing.
Not sure which is more cancerous...The Facebook comment sections or MAL anime reviews.

Well, i give this anime a ten. This live action will be not good for commonly 60-120 min film because mostlikely they will only use and rushed the main plot.
The anime is a 10 because the pace and balancene of the seriousness and chillness.

The anime itself wasn't that great, in my opinion. It was a bit too reliant on the shock factor for me, which has been done to death in other moe anime. I don't see how this will translate over particularly well to live action, since the moe horror is the main draw in for most folk, and that's difficult to replicate among real human beings.

this may lead to a season two. if you observe closely, last august's end of the last chapter after the hiatus may be the span of season two. And this movie may be a turning point for the profit of making the anime another season.. im still positive and so as you all fans out there!

I know live action movies don’t have the best reputation but i don’t care, I’m still interested to see this when it’ll come out. As a big gg fan, I’m definitely looking forward to see how that’ll turn out. It’s the perfect occasion for them to present the story on a darker point of view rather than a cute and moe one like the anime mostly did.

Gakkougurashi seems like it'd honestly make a pretty cool live-action. I wonder how they'll do it...

Us : We want Gakkougurashi season 2

Japan : LIVE ACTION FILM

Seriously though its gonna be

"A cute girl with autism is stuck in school with her depressed friends doing cute things with the zombie apocalypse happening"

I mean, if they followed how the first season went minus all the cute bits that feel like filler then it could turn into a promising live action. But it may lead to being another generic zombie apocalypse film.

I'd really like more Gakkougurashi especially with the manga on hiatus and no hope of season 2. But a live action film feels meh. It's like when you're hungry and think about having nutella toast but instead you get buttered toast; You don't really care what you get but if it's not something you expected then you'd feel disappointed
