It is no coincidence that Megurigaoka Private High School is a second home for Yuki Takeya and the rest of the School Living Club. The club has only one mission: to spend day and night on campus promoting independence and engaging in a wide variety of school activities. Between Yuuri Wakasa's composure, Kurumi Ebisuzawa's dependability, Yuki Takeya's initiative, and their teacher Megumi Sakura's support, the club should have everything under control—in theory, that is.

As it turns out, living at school has its fair share of challenges. In order to make it to graduation and beyond, the members of the School Living Club must overcome their day-to-day troubles while making the most of their school lives.

School Live is a psychological horror of cute girls doing cute things while trying to survive the zombie apocalypse.

The story is very basic, the girls are surviving in a zombie apocalypse. Its very standard in terms of the zombie genre but it's the characters that truly make this series shine. The cast is so lovable to the point of dangering your health from worrying about their safety. Yuki is my personal favourite and she's one of my favourite characters ever. She's very complex just like the rest of the main four and that's what I love about this. Kurumi is the lovable tomboy, Yuuri is ...

Spoiler Free Review :3

First of all, if you have not watched Gakkougurashi or read the manga, don't read any reviews don't read a synopsis, none of that. Going in blind is not something I personally did, but I would recommend that to be the most exciting way to read this.

I came from the anime of Gakkougurashi wanting to see if it was as good as it's anime adaptation, as I had not read much manga in the past. And what I got did not disappoint in any way, it was even better than I had expected. I found it to be a very good series ...

I must say, starting off this manga I didn't have high hopes for it. Zombies aren't really something that catch my attention. Even so, I fell in love with Gakkougurashi.

There's something about bonding with the characters as they struggle to have a normal life, with each of the characters being quite unique in their own way. We see them are their highest highs, and especially their lowest lows. Rarely is there the chance that I disliked a character in this manga (two instances really, I feel as if they weren't fully fledged out), and the friendship among everyone is lively and heartwarming. Surely there are ...

Gakkougurashi! (School-Live!) is not your average cute slice of life anime. No really- it's not just weird because they live at school. Plus, a short interview of two of the voice actresses!
