Yen Press releases the manga in English, and it describes the story:

Meet the members of the School Living Club! There’s shovel(?) Kurumi Ebisuzawa, big sister figure Yuuri Wakasa, club advisor Megumi Sakura and, last but not least, the ever-optimistic Yuki Takeya. The School Living Club is just an average after-school organization where girls hang out, have fun… and live at school as the sole survivors of a zombie apocalypse. NBD.

The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime series that premiered in July 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in June 2017 with an English double. HIDIVE also streams the series with English subtitles and with English double.

The manga inspired a live-action film adaptation which opened in Japan in January 2019. The film inspired a four-episode live-action miniseries prequel, titled Gakkō XXX ~Mō Hitotsu no Gakkō Gurashi! (School XXX – Another School-Live!), which also debuted on Amazon Prime Video in Japan in January 2019.

Update: The manga will end in the October issue of Manga Time Kirara Before, which will ship on August 24.
