What Is My Undead Yokai Girlfriend About?

My Undead Yokai Girlfriend is a unique collaboration of Japanese production and original script written by Yalun Tu and Zack Heins; the series will be directed by the acclaimed Takahiro Miki, popular for directing numerous live-action adaptations of original manga and teen-age love story novels. Starring in the series as the lead will be Hayato Sano playing Tadashi Inukai (Hachi) a university student and Ai Yoshikawa as Izzy, a beautiful Yokai girl, whom Hachi falls in love with.

Prime Video, announced the exclusive premiere of the Japanese Original drama series, My Undead Yokai Girlfriend, on March 22 in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. My Undead Yokai Girlfriend is the latest addition to Prime membership. Prime members in Japan enjoy savings, convenience, and entertainment, all in a single membership.

Shot in the traditional and beautiful city of Kyoto, My Undead Yokai Girlfriend depicts the extraordinary Japanese folklore of ‘Yokai’ and ‘Otaku’, as a strange relationship of love and mystery is sparked between a lonely college student Tadashi who wants nothing more than to find a girlfriend, and Izzy, a Yokai girl who accidentally finds herself bonded to him through a magical hex. But the quirky love story takes an unexpected and gripping twist as the true intention of Izzy is to exact revenge on a human family for an incident from over 500 years ago.

Starring in many popular, high-profile dramas and films, Hayato Sano said, “My Undead Yokai Girlfriend is truly a remarkable series that has everything an actor could hope for in a project, there’s romance, drama, comedy, action and horror that make it complete from every aspect. After my debut over nine years ago, I am thrilled to once again work with Takahiro Miki and be part of such a novel and entertaining series that I am certain audiences from all over the world will thoroughly enjoy.”

“I was pleasantly surprised when I was first approached for the role of Izzy, a ‘Yokai’ in My Undead Yokai Girlfriend,” said Ai Yoshikawa. “This has been one of the most exciting yet challenging roles that I have ever played in my career. From speaking in an ancient language and dialect to engaging in some of the most fantastic action sequences, the arc of my character and the range of emotions that I got to express was truly fulfilling for me as an artist.”

“The spellbinding script of My Undead Yokai Girlfriend by Yalun and Zack is extremely mesmerizing and goes beyond the confines of other fantasy love stories, having such an artistic and ingenious connection between the protagonists – Hachi and Izzy. A story with such a unique premise required our approach, treatment, and the performance of every character to be at the very best of our abilities and I am thankful to the entire cast and team who gave their 100%. I am confident that the series will resonate with and will be enjoyed by the global audiences of Prime Video, when it launches on March 22,” said director Takahiro Miki.

Executive Producers and writer duo, Yalun Tu and Zack Hines added, “This series is a dream come true for both of us. We wanted to tell a story about a funny, strange, heartfelt, and sometimes scary relationship and we couldn’t be happier to see it come to life. We love the action, the comedy, and the romance, expertly directed by the brilliant Director Miki and acted by Hayato and Ai. We must thank Prime Video, whole team at Amazon MGM Studios, and production team for understanding and supporting this ambitious vision.”

“My Undead Yokai Girlfriend is a compelling and unmissable series with an immensely talented team comprising of the creative script-writing duo Yalun Tu and Zack Hines, ingenious director Takahiro Miri, and gifted actors Hayato and Ai playing the lead,” said James Farrell, vice president of international, Amazon MGM Studios. “We are delighted to bring to Prime Video customers from all over the world this extraordinary retelling of the fabled Japanese connection between Yokai and Otaku through a unique perspective that can be enjoyed by audiences across age groups and preferences.”
