What is Undead Unluck about?

Undead Unluck follows a girl named Fuuko Izumo, who has a weird power known as ‘Unluck.’ This power allows her to bring bad luck to those who touch her. And because of that, she accidentally killed her own parents when she was very young. She keeps having suicidal thoughts as she can’t get in contact with others, and the thought of harming others takes her on a guilt trip.

We do not yet know how many episodes the anime will come with, but the creators have already announced that the series will run for two cours. So, it makes sense if we believe it to bring 24-25 episodes in total.

Besides that, Undead Unluck’s animation comes from the studio that has worked on shows like Fireforce and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures. Yes, of course, it is David Productions, so we are already familiar with the quality we would be getting.
