The original Undead Unluck manga has been serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump since January 20, 2020, with Viz Media’s Shonen Jump app and Manga Plus releasing the series in English. Viz Media describes the series 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.



The animation for Undead Unluck is being produced at David Production with UNLIMITED PRODUCE by TMS planning and producing the series. The anime is set to air in 2023.
