This weekend’s Jump Festa 2023 event brought with it big news on a bunch of manga and adaptations, including more details on the Undead Unluck TV anime. The series is set to air sometime in 2023, and you can see a sample in the debut trailer and read on for more about the cast and staff behind it.
The Jump Festa event had main cast members Yuichi Nakamura (Gojo in JUJUTSU KAISEN) and Moe Khara (Akari in The Executioner and Her Way of Life) in attendance. Joining the cast are Natsuki Hanae (Tanjiro in Demon Slayer) as Shen and Kenji Nomura (Ushiyama in Golden Kamuy) as Void, both pictured below.
Yuki Yase is directing the Undead Unluck anime, with Hideyuki Morioka on character designs and Kenichiro Suehiro on music at anime studio David Production. Those three staff members also performed the same duties on the first season of the Fire Force anime.
Here’s how Viz Media describes the manga by Yoshifumi Tozuka:
All Fuuko wants is a passionate romance like the one in her favorite shojo manga. Unfortunately, her Unluck ability makes that impossible. But just as Fuuko hits rock bottom, Andy sweeps her off her feet—literally! Now she’s become Andy’s unwilling test subject as he works to find a way to trigger a stroke of Unluck big enough to kill him for good. However, when the pair discovers a secret organization is hunting them, it puts Andy’s burial plans on hold.
