The July issue of Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Age magazine is announcing on Thursday that a second anime season of Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? has been green-lit. The first anime season based on Shinichi Kimura's original light novel series aired in Japan from January to March.
In the story, a normal high school boy named Ayumu Aikawa gets killed during a spate of mysterious serial killings. However, Ayumu is resurrected as a zombie by a necromancer girl named "Yū" (Eucliwood Hellscythe), who Ayumu had just met before dying. Ayumu then accidentally deprives the magical girl Haruna of her powers, so she demands that Ayumu take her place in fighting her enemy Megalo.
Crunchyroll streamed the first season outside Japan as it aired.
The July issue of Dragon Age also revealed that the previously announced anime adaptation of Hiromitsu Takeda's Maken-Ki! manga will be a television anime.
