Gakkougurashi!, or simply School-Live!, is a horror-themed slice-of-life anime. Despite the show’s somber tone, it focuses on endearing high school girls as its protagonists. Moe horror is another name for this kind of anime. The Madoka Magica series is yet another excellent example of moe horror. After more than six years, viewers have started to wonder whether there would be a Season 2 of School Live.
The original source material for the show is Norimitsu Kaihou and Sadoru Chiba’s manga of the same name. From 2012 to 2019 (a total of 12 volumes), it was serialized by Manga Time Kirara Forward. Next year, they will release School-Live! Letters, a sequel to the manga they worked on together. Also in 2015, two collections named Gakkougurashi! Kai and Gakkougurashi, in an Anthology Comic! Comic Book Collection: On.
School-Live Season 2 Renewal Status
When the first season of School Live premiered, it was an immediate smash. Both reviewers and audiences seemed to like it. The popularity of the anime version led to a significant surge in manga sales. Since Gakkou Gurashi was already so popular, viewers naturally believed it would be revived shortly. Despite the passage of almost five years, a second season of Studio Lerche has still not been approved.
Well, anime adaptations often serve as little more than glorified ads for their inspirations. To encourage fans of the anime to read the source material if they’re looking for additional substance, they often end after the first season. Many promising anime have fallen victim to this trend in recent years. Still, if the first film or TV show needs more publicity, studios may sometimes renew sequels. The current status of the Gakkou Gurashi manga is unknown. This means that Season 2 of School Live is still possible.
School-Live Season 2 Release Date
There has been no official word on when Season 2 will premiere. When I get fresh information, I will post it here. Season one of this show premiered on Netflix on July 15, 2015. I’m looking forward to “Season 2,” whenever that may be. There will be more people watching the following season. The conclusion is expected to come sometime in late 2024 or early 2025. What gives? I promise to elaborate. Hold your attention as we pique your curiosity about the forecasted arrival of the season.
Yuki Takeya is a happy high school student who never leaves the campus and is actively involved in the student club. Her pals are Yuuri Wakasa and Kurumi. The city has been overtaken by a horde of zombies. The high school is not immune to the pandemic, and many students and faculty members perish there as well. Yuki participates in extracurricular activities outside of the school day, yet she never leaves the safety of her friends’ care.
She thinks her educators and classmates are OK, so she doesn’t worry about them. Megumi Sareka found out from her mother and Yuuri what had happened in the city and how the pandemic had affected it. Later, Yuki hosted a tour that, like all the cities, was plagued by breakouts.
A survivor named Miki Naoki was eventually contacted and told about Yuki’s hallucinations. There was no actual Megumi; Yuki had created the character in his head.

Miki discovers her illusions and attempts to make sense of Yuki’s assurances. Yuki and her classmates discover a safe with information on the epidemic at their school.

School-Live Season 2: Is there enough source material?
Adaptations rely far more heavily on their source material than original anime does. School Live Season 2 is spared this predicament, thankfully. The first is that the anime, although adapting a large portion of the manga, often deviates from the main story and includes its own material. However, the first season is only adapted till Chapter 30 of Volume 5. The manga has already reached twelve volumes, so there is enough of material for a continuation.
