Ore no Tomodachi wa Zombie-desu!? (俺の友達はゾンビです!? My Friends are Zombies!?) is an anime that was written, directed, and created by Akira Jotaro who also created the anime A Little Ghost Story, Nightmare Mirror, and Mawari Urami.
The story takes place in a strange school that was abandoned in 1899 in the Meiji era of Japan that is as big as a castle. The story is about a high school boy who was murdered with his friends one night and they all woke up in an old school where they find out that they're all already dead, yet, still alive.
Shien Ouno is an average high school 2nd year student who does average in academics, average in PE, but very good at keeping his friends close. After the cultural festival ended, Shien and his friends, Tsukihi Yozora, the pervert, Jotaro Jojima, the expressionless joker, Touko Tajiri, the tomboy martial artist, Daimon Furukawa, the American lover, Kiseki Oto, the student council president, and Minami Kamijou, the playful teacher, all had a celebration together in their classroom. When it became 7 PM, the lights went out and the door opened then the group got startled. A few minutes after, a silhouette of a man wearing glasses appeared and not long after that, the entire room was covered in blood and the man was gone, not knowing that Shien was still actually alive, but barely and also knowing his face. When Shien woke up, he was in a classroom that looked similar to his class but in ruins and also a little more elegant looking; as Shien looked around, he saw someone outside the door and called for help, and later noticed that it was Tsukihi, who then started to sexually harass him like she usually did until the others got there and he then notices that they were all bandaged. They all then explained that they were in the same situations he was; waking up not knowing where they were or how they were alive. Now they all try to figure out why they're inside an old abandoned school and as they explore around the school, they start get used to the school and meet with many ghosts and eventually, they find out that they all are already dead and they are zombies.
- The main protagonist of the series. Before he was a zombie, he was an average student with nothing very bad or very good in his life until he was killed. He hates when Tsukihi harasses him and will usually try to get away from her whenever she does even though she has been doing that to him ever since they were little kids. He is the only one of the zombies to have no wounds from ripped from the murderer who killed them. He is voiced by Yuichi Nakamura.
- Shien's childhood friend who has known him since they were in preschool. During their early elementary years, she began to develop a perverted sense of humor with Shien and started to sexually harass him during their 5th year of elementary. She has had a crush on Shien ever since they became friends. She had her left eye gouged out by the murderer so she had it bandaged over. She is voiced by Aya Hirano.
- Shien's friend who can't express any emotions but likes to fool around and pull pranks. He has a face that always shows the same emotionless expression but inside his head, he is always thinking of ideas to solve a problem or make a joke. He lost his right arm at the murder, but he was fortunate that he is left handed. He is voiced by Atsushi Kisaichi.
- A tomboyish girl who loves martial arts and Chinese kung-fu movies. She was Tsukihi's first female friend and they have been together since elementary school along with Shien. She is a master at karate, judo, tae kwon do, and a Chinese and karate-based kung-fu she created called Raioken which she was inspired by a video game she played. She lost her right leg at the murder which she later replaced using a leg of a science doll with the help of Ms. Kamijou. She often uses her martial arts skills against others when she is embarassed or scared. She is voiced by Emiri Kato.
- An athletic muscle-head who is in love with American football, boxing, basketball, and baseball. He likes to exercise and will try to do anything to get stronger than he already is, but after becoming a zombie, he could not get any stronger due to the fact that zombies are able to use more than 100% of a human's power. He was the captain of the American football team and also a young boxing coach for the gym he goes to. He looks as if he is in his early 30s but he is actually only 16 years-old. He had his chest slashed open at the murder. He is voiced by Tomokazu Sugita.
- The student council president, class representative, and the school's number one singer. She is often arrogant and likes to make sexual jokes or scary stories. She has a crush on Shien but hides it by acting as if she is fake-tsundere. Her head was cut off at the murder but strangely, she could still talk even if it is off of her body, but it really scared the others so her neck was bandaged to be attached to her body; it was unknown that her head was cut off until they found out they were zombies. She is voiced by Yuu Kobayashi and her singing is voiced by Tomomi Itano from AKB48.
- A young teacher and an unmarried woman who always had troubles in searching for boyfriends due to her fear of men older than or the same age as her, but she has no problems with her male students or male children. She is often told that she looks younger than her actual age, which is 25 years-old, but it is said that she looks like an 18 or 19 year-old girl. She is voiced by Rie Tanaka.
