It's hard to say why they are so similar without spoiling either one, so I'd simply suggest if you've seen/are watching one, you should watch the other.

Dead teenagers trying to achieve their dreams even though they are already dead. Solving traumas from when they are still alive with their friendship. There are music and singing too

Both series are about Idols who trying to become best by their own way. The only difference is Zombieland Saga is more serious and horror-centric storyline while Love Live are more cheerful and has lighthearted storyline.

Zombieland Saga is the best zombie related comedy since Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? Both are recommended if you ever thought you needed a zombie a comedy. Kore wa zombie desu ka is more on the shoen -y side while Zombieland Saga calls itself an idol show.

They both are about idol groups but they make changes to the genre to turn it into an absurd comedy, in one case using zombies and in the other male-transformated magical girls as idols.

Not an idol show but great comedy and plays mostly out-of-stage scenes.

Both shows have cute girls that, for a turn of events, "transorm" into a different kind of idol. They both rely a lot in comedy, sometimes taking it to an absurd level, in a good way. Just remember that PriPara is more innocent while Zombieland is R-17. As a plus, Zombieland's Manager really looks like PriPara's Meganii-san

- Tatsumi Koutarou from "Zombieland Saga" and Haruko Haruhara from new season "FLCL" have a many similarities in their behavior and madness. - Girls from both shows get into big trouble because of one person, which radically changes their lives. - Both shows have notes of madness, parody and comedy.

Great comedy, there is a lot of good laughs in this one.

Well, cute dead girls are in both shows, regardless of their artistic and emotional levels. Their attempts to cope with the alive creatures are always fun to watch.

If you like watching zombie in a cute and comedic manner, these shows are the best choice. Keep in mind that Sankarea tend to focus on the romance and drama between the main characters, as opposed to Zombieland Saga which is using over-the-top comedy as its main selling point.

Both are slightly absurdist comedies which incorporate or parody other popular genres (ZLS Idol/Horror and Asobi Slice of Life), both starring cute girls. If you enjoy the style of comedy in ZLS, Asobi Asobase is for you.

Normal person gets hit by truck and ends up in a crazy situation they didn't ask for. They both nail the comedy.

Both series literally kill off their main character at the beginning of the first episode. Both MCs were highshcool girls Both MCs were killed by a truck. Both are hilarious in their own way. Zombieland Saga is an Idol anime Excel Saga is a Parody anime

Zombieland Saga and Punchline both have ridiculous premises that have a nice blend of comedy and drama. Both shows can be pretty sad when it counts, and pretty hilarious. In terms is story, these shows are not similar, but it’s the uniqueness and absurdity of both the stories that makes them similar. Zombieland Saga is about girls from different time periods being resurrected as zombies to become idols for saving Saga prefecture. Punchline is about a main character who turns into a ghost, and if he sees panties, his nose bleeds, and the world blows up. Punchline also has a time loop thing going on.  read more

both seem to be one of many generic animes following popular tropes in the isekai and idol genres, but they're actually really well-done animes that not just critique and satirize those genres but show how great they can be when done properly. wildly funny but there's still an intriguing plot so it's not just all pointless comedy that makes u feel like ur wasting ur life away

MC have similar art style and often do cute expression. both work in a group with other girls and also have manager/producer. both contain satire about bad side of idol industry. 
report Recommended by watzitoya
Both are comedies about local idol groups formed to save a local area from dying out.

Wacky girls on a wacky journey to save their prefecture/small town, Cheer Fruits is essentialy Love Live but better aka it's like Love Live Sunshine if you want to see girls have fun, support each other, and work towards something that matters while being cute goofs watch it no seriously do it WATCH CHEER FRUITS DANG NABBIT AND ZOMBI TOO

They're seemingly different at first, but without spoiling anything (because it really is worth it to go into Zombieland Saga knowing as little as possible about it), after the first episode, they make me want to see the places they feature. Also, Yoshino reminds me of Sakura and Ushimatsu reminds me a little of Koutarou.

Both animes talk about idols helping other people. In Idol Jihen groups are political parties. They solve urban problems. In Zombieland Saga already dead idols in the form of live zombies help people from their past. The main characters of both animes overcome their difficulties and failures.  
report Recommended by Kyosuke_Kosaka
Both animes are about idols who strive from scratch to become a worthy idol project. They participate in a variety of promo, in order to get fame. Animes are similar in that each of girls has any problems and fears that each of them is trying to overcome. Both anime have same atmosphere, but differ in that in the group Wake Up, Girls! real girls are singing, and in Zombieland Saga - zombie girls. In Zombieland Saga, of course, more fiction for humor, and in Wake Up, Girls! more real work of managers, labels and groups.

If you enjoy the over-the-top characters and tone of Zombieland Saga, you'll probably really like Steins;Gate. If you even slightly like the protagonist of Zombieland Saga, you will grow to adore Okabe Rintarou. It's just an all-around good anime for when you want to laugh, cry, cry a lot, or repeat stupid phrases over and over until your friends beg you to stop.
