It’s official! Undead Unluck will have its own anime! After spending weeks in the rumor mill, the project has made it to center stage with some help from Shueisha. Weekly Shonen Jump has confirmed that Undead Unluck is getting an anime, and it already sounds like a hit to us.
According to the update, Undead Unluck is being adapted into an anime by the folks at David Production. The team should be familiar to fans as the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure study abroad. And right now, the new series is scheduled to release sometime in 2023.

As you can see above, a teaser image for the anime was also shared. Undead Unluck introduces Fuuko Izumo on the left in all her beanie-loving glory, and they’re joined by Andy on the right. The silver-haired fighter looks about as muscular as you’d expect given the manga, and his chest tattoos are on full display here. And while the pair may seem like an unsuspecting duo from the outside, well, manga fans know that Undead Unluck had a stroke of genius pairing these leads up against each other.

But just as Fuuko hits rock bottom, Andy drives her crazy, literally!
