Zombieland Saga Synopsis
Sakura Minamoto dreams of becoming an idol. Unfortunately, reality hits her like a truck (literally) and she dies in a sudden car accident. Ten years later, she awakens in Saga Prefecture, only to find herself turned into a zombie with no memory of her past. While still accepting her new destiny, she meets a man named Koutarou Tatsumi, who explains that he has resurrected her and six other girls from other eras as zombies with the goal of financially revitalizing Saga Prefecture by creating a group of idols.
Assuming the role of an aggressive manager, Koutarou begins scheduling events; the girls finally accept it and decide to name his idol group “Franchouchou”. An absurdly comical take on the anime idol genre, Zombieland Saga tells the poignant story of Franchouchou saving Saga Prefecture while hiding their identities as zombies and rediscovering her past.
