What is the plot of Undead Unluck?

The story centers on a young girl named Fuuko Izumo, who has been living in seclusion for 10 years since an incident occurred, which left more than 200 people dead, including her parents when she was just 8 years old. The only thing keeping Fuuko going was a long-running shoujo manga series, but when that finally comes to an end Fuuko decides she no longer has a reason to live and decides to plan her suicide.

Another reason Fuuko wants to commit suicide is that she was cursed with a strange ability called “unluck”. When people come into contact with her physically they are cursed with bad luck that can even end up being fatal. That’s when she meets an undead man, who has amazing regenerative abilities that nullify Fuuko’s “unluck” ability even when he hugs her.

This mysterious undead man has grown tired of his immortality and is searching for a way to “die the best death possible”. Since this undead man decides to start tagging along with Fuuko she decides to name him “Andy”. However, a mysterious organization called the Union begins to chase them for unknown reasons.

Later, an assassin from the Union named Shen reveals that the organization has a special team of ten people with special abilities and that if they decide to join up they will no longer be hunted. Fuuko and Andy decide to join in order to attain Andy’s wish for “the best death”, and they end up battling powerful enemies and uncovering the mysteries in their world.

The Union bases its missions on the writings found inside a book called Apocalypse, which has supernatural powers. The Union is an organization made up of special individuals called Negators – people with the ability to negate the rules of the world.

Their mission is to hunt UMA – Unidentified Mysterious Animals that are the embodiment of Earth’s rules and are created by God in order to bring about the Apocalypse. The Union must also face off against a group of Negators that opposes the Union called Under, and its Regulators – beings chosen to do God’s bidding to bring about the Apocalypse.
