Nice to see zombie anime getting some love. It's been a bit since Gakkougurashi, so I am happy to see this.

Not much is known. Cygames has kept this under wraps. Didn't they do Uma Musume two seasons ago? It seems they are getting into the anime biz now. Though with MAPPA, you cannot go wrong. I gotta watch this.

You're right about that one! Though this doesn't seem like it's going to be your typical zombie anime. We could be getting something great.

Synopsis

An everyday morning. Everyday music. Everyday me.

The peace that these seven girls enjoyed is suddenly destroyed.

You die, fester, and then become a zombie...

Three Episode Impression

Taking into account the name of Zombieland Saga, one might expect some sort of zombie apocalypse. In fact, I was expecting something a bit darker or grotesque. Instead, I’m thrown into this anime that surprised me at first by being about a girl who dreams of being an idol. I thought to myself, ‘Great, another idol anime…’ Literally 1 minute into the anime, the main characters walks out onto the road to pursue her dreams and is run over by a truck right outside her gate. What… Then it turns out that she’s been chosen to be revived in Saga Prefecture in order to become an idol and bring fame to Saga Prefecture. She and a bunch of girls picked for some sort of talent they’ve had throughout the different eras were revived to become idols. As we go on, I’m constantly left dumbfounded at all of the stupidity that goes on, but it makes me crack up. In the first episode, Zombie #1—our protagonist—is the only one awake and they perform at some sort of metal concert where all she does is scream into the mike while everyone else headbangs like they don’t have vertebrae. Episode 2 shows the girls bursting into an angry rap arguing at each other. Then in episode 3, things suddenly change when the girls do a random public performance and the animation style is in CG. Clearly, Zombieland Saga is just making fun of all of the idol anime out there and quite honestly, we love it for that.
