Fans have been keeping an eye on Undead Unluck as it seems to be the next major series poised for an anime adaptation of its own, but the series is picking up steam by teasing fans with a major announcement coming our way! Fans have seen many of the standout series from Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine getting their own anime adaptations, and some of these are newer than the others. With this latest generation all getting picked up in some form or fashion, there are a few series still left that have yet to fully make the jump to anime.
Undead Unluck has been one of the series fans have been keeping an eye on as while the series has been running since 2020 with over 120 chapters under its belt as of this writing, there have been no signs of a potential anime adaptation much like some of the newer series released in the years since have gotten. But that could very well change soon as the series has been building towards a special announcement teased to be revealed on Friday, August 26th. Now it's just a matter of waiting to find out what this new announcement will be!
It's not clear if this will be an announcement for an anime adaptation, or an announcement pertaining to Yoshifumi Tozuka's original manga series (such as a potential final arc), but it would follow up rumors about a potential anime being in the works. Thankfully it won't be too much longer until we get to see what this announcement will be. If you're curious about Undead Unluck, you can check out the newest chapters of the series through Viz Media's digital Shonen Jump library.
There are a few physical volumes of the manga now on shelves, and Viz Media describes the first release as such, "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."
