Before moving on to Zombie Land Saga Season 2, it’s worth noting that Zombie Land Saga Season 1 begins with a bang. Our MC Sakura is struck by our popular Truck-Kun in the first few minutes. Sakura wakes up 10 years later to discover that she has transformed into a zombie, rather than being isekai’d as most anime characters do after being struck by a truck.
One of the reasons I was attracted to this series was because of this. There is also diversity among the characters in the series! This show takes place in Saga Land, a small Japanese area.
Sakura along with six other girls are trained by Coach Tatsumi to entertain everyone as idols. Yes! Some girl just got hit by a truck and comes back as a zombie and a dude goes like, “I’ll make you an idol”. SPOILER ALERT, These girls perform the Metal Genre! So, if you’re a huge fan of metal, you’re going to dig the show!
Now all these six idols want is to have a peaceful life with usual music and ordinary life. However, their peace is destroyed by the Living Dead! it’s a reality they never wanted to accept! And they all have one wish which is “We want to live“. These six girls are given the mission to save the Saga Prefecture. As their zombie bodies are undead, it lets them test their limits and face the challenges very bravely! Zombie Land Saga Revenge Season 2 also focuses on the backstory of the characters
In the Heisei Era, they rocked their first concert at Karatsu Arpino but now things have changed, the tables have turned, and they have to face new challenges. So, aside from all the performing, there’s going to be some crazy action in Zombie Land Saga Revenge! In my opinion, metal songs with some good fights will make us all go crazy! If you’re into metal and action, I would 10/10 recommend you watch this series!
Characters in Zombie Land Saga (Roles)
Here are some of the main characters in Zombie Land Saga!
Coach Tatsumi is the founder of the Franchouchou band who trains these six idols perfectly
Sakura Minamoto is the Main Character who gets hit by the truck and becomes a Zombie Idol in the first few minutes of the series
Saki Nikaido is a reckless fellow who likes to ride bikes and is a member of the female biker gang
Ai Mizuno dies by getting struck by lightning during the concert, she doesn’t want to be remembered as a pitiful girl so she tries her best to improve her image and skills after getting a second chance in her second life
Junko Konno dies a very fatal death in a plane crash, she dies in the 1980s so she didn’t have any means to social media to interact with her fans.
Yugiri is a straightforward person who has a bad habit of criticizing others for giving up on things very easily even if they don’t actually give up on them
Lily Hoshikawa dies of a heart attack before getting reincarnated into a zombie, she basically died because of the stress and the shock she got after finding out the growth rate of her facial hair. She had no opinions on becoming a zombie
Tae Yamada is the only original and prodigious girl in the series who named the band Franchouchou. She has to regain her human consciousness yet.
Zombie Land – Zombie Glam
Firstly, the thing that I find the most interesting in the whole Zombie Land Saga series is that the zombie girls wear Makeup to look like ordinary and normal humans! I mean, yeah it’s not their fault for being reincarnated as a zombie into the Saga prefecture. So, they’re doing their best to entertain and cheer the audience by putting makeup on and dressing up as normal Idols! This is one of the fun facts in the Zombie Land Saga that makes the series hilarious.
The other thing that I find quite interesting is that these idols are very passionate instead of looking all dead and lazy like most zombies, they chose to be feisty and energetic because they have to make Franchouchou shine again! Franchouchou is the idol band name formed by Coach Tatsumi. Even if their bodies are destroyed their soul can never be! It’s basically their soul driving them into the world of the dead. And this is the most beautiful thing I’ve heard today!
Now, Imagine if you were a zombie, would you like to move actively around? Honestly, if I were one I would never ever get up from my place which I already don’t. I am called a Zombie by my mom anyway!
All of these girls died in different eras which makes the series seem more hilarious. One of the characters died a bit too early when there were no social media so when she sees such advancement in society she gets shocked! And we get to see such comedy scenes in the series too! And we also have a female biker in the series, sounds badass, right?
The coach is an interesting guy himself, to be honest, who offers a dead girl who gets reincarnated as a zombie to become an IDOL? If I were to witness such a scene I would faint after watching these zombie girls! Just kidding! Zombies are cute, I mean, the zombie girls!
If you guys haven’t watched Zombie Land Saga’s Season 2 which is called the Revenge! You need to watch it! It’s still ongoing and I hope you guys enjoyed reading this blog, tell us what did you find interesting in the whole series? This series is perfect for watching if you want to binge-watch an anime with fewer episodes and lots of music along with a little sparkle of zombies in it!
