The anime follows Sakura Minamoto, who dreams of being an idol, but is hit by a car and wakes up as a zombie. A man named Kōtarō Tatsumi appears and tells her he's recruiting her into an idol group made up of zombies, dead girls he has "recruited" from several eras of Japanese history.

I *do* wonder if we’re going to get an explanation for why Sakura and pals get to wake up and keep their minds and poo poo as zombies. Like the show clearly doesn’t and really shouldn’t give a poo poo about Lore, but it does stick out a bit.

Well it could be the manner of death, the scene didn't really focus on it because it would be pretty gruesome but by the scar she has on her head it looked like she got a really bad head injury from the accident.

Hi!

I hope the legendary Tae Yamada never wakes up and keeps being the team mascot.

Oh god, what is it with 2018 that's delivering so much choice anime? At which point did the normally super rigid people who approve projects said "HELL YEAH, UNDEAD IDOLS TACKLE DIFFERENT GENRES PER EPISODE. THAT'S WHERE THE GRAVY TRAIN AND GOLD-PLATED DIAPERS ARE, BABY" and went on their merry ways?

... you know what? I'm fine either way. I love this drat show already.

Show is being funded by Cygames too so if it takes off expect a Granblue crossover so you can team them up with Aquors and Idolmaster

This sure is a mamoru miyano role alright. Man, the musical bits are so much more inspired than everything else. The lead-up to the end in both these first two episodes was mad boring, honestly, I think it's a shame the show can't have the same kinda energy it has in its best bits more often. It'll prolly find a better groove as it goes on and the girls are more thoroughly fleshed out and get over the what-the-gently caress-is-happening awkwardness. The ending was dopeplus I love that the cop actually rapped back, but the execution and sense of humor otherwise are lukewarm for me, so I'm still kinda halfsies on it. OP ruled.

So, I've, like, designed a really sweet attack plan that I'm calling Attack Plan Ded Moroz, like "Deadmau5!"

Where the gently caress is Woody Harrelson

Some Kind of Magical Idiot


I tried giving this a shot after hearing people gush about the first episode, but I don't think it's for me. Every character besides Sakura (and maybe the child actress girl with the weird external heart) is a huge rear end in a top hat, *especially* the manager guy. His whole "Why are you a zombie? SHUT UP, YOU JUST ARE. Why is this plain looking zombie girl 'legendary'? SHUT UP, SHE JUST IS." bit really rubbed me the wrong way, like he's yelling at the audience for attempting to think about the premise of the show beyond just the surface level. I know lots of people say that characters don't have to be likable to be good characters, but for me personally, if I don't like a character then I don't care what happens to them and therefore I don't really want to consume whatever piece of media they're in anymore.

I completely hadn't seen this series coming and I usually hate idol shows, but I'm loving this. Performances are on point, musical scenes are surreal, and good old zombie physical comedy. I like how it's all somehow improbably wrapped up into a tourism board anime for a middle of nowhere rural prefecture.

My favorite thing so far is how the Legendary Yamada Tae is listed in the credits as voiced by "????".

Since we specifically see her head hit the ground without getting a huge gash in it, and she seems to have some sort of memories of being on stage as an idol, my guess is that she actually survived the car accident in the beginning, became a successful idol, and then was killed by an axe to the head or something.

I think you can hear JUNNA in the opening song which is sung by all the zombie girls, she might be the voice of Tae. Altough she hasn't done any voice acting before so I dunno.

I wouldn't put it past this project to do a goofy stunt casting like that, taking into account that she did the "Zawa, zawa" effects for one segment of the Middle Manager Tonegawa series.

I loved that part. The whole episode was a slam-dunk of emotions, music, zombies and not-Mamoru-Miyano-but-totally-voiced-by-Mamoru-Miyano being larger than life. This and double decker are depantsing everything else this season.
