WHAT IS UNDEAD UNLUCK ABOUT?
Undead Unluck centers around Fuuko Izumo, a girl who has been living in isolation for ten years since an incident when she was eight years old that killed more than 200 people, including her parents. Fuuko plans to end her life after finishing her favorite long-running girls’ manga series. She is troubled by the fact that she cannot be touched by anyone because of her “unluck” ability, which sends bad luck to everybody she comes into physical contact with.
She encounters an “undead” man with incredible regenerative abilities who want to die in the greatest way possible, despising his immortal life. Fuuko names him Andy because he is undead for convenience, and they begin to collaborate. However, they are quickly pursued by the Union, a mysterious organization.
