Alternate Titles

The Misfortune of a Certain Zombie Girl
Aru Zombie Shoujo no Sainan


It’s summer break, but rather than go home, five university students and members of the occult society have planned a special mission. Searching for hidden treasure from the Tokugawa era, the gang have managed to sneak deep into the university vaults. What they find there, however, isn’t gold but two perfectly preserved female mummies!

Sayaka Kamoshida, who snuck into the vault to fit in with her friends, spots a mysterious jewel on one of the bodies and swipes it. Disappointed not to have found any gold, the gang make their way out, but stealing the jewel will have profound consequences for them all.

Resurrected by dark magic, former noblewoman Euphrosyne Studion and her maid Alma V resolve to track down the occultists and retrieve the jewel. Why did Sayaka steal it in the first place, and will any of the students survive?

Anime Adaptation

Calamity of the Zombie Girl is adapted from the light novel series by Ryo Ikehata. Kadokawa first announced the anime adaptation along with a trailer back in 2012, but no further information was given until it was confirmed on April 13, 2018 that the anime would be an ONA produced by Gonzo and Stingray.
