Undead Unlock is based on Yoshifumi Tozuka’s manga, which began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in 2020 and will have its 18th tankoubon volume released on October 4th. Viz Media describes the plot as:
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.
The anime will be available to stream outside of Japan on Hulu.
