THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I have to admit, this was a rather unusual show even with the music.

There's a rather eerie mood with the setting and it's about as straightforward as it got. Zombies coming after one of the main girls (Sakura) right from the start as she feels helplessly trapped. She managed to escape and I guess the episode captured the eerie mood of what I was expecting at the moment.

They even got a zombie dog in this show LOL and it's quite unusual. I was also not expecting this series to include stuff about idols.

Definitely a weird show so far but I'm going to follow it to see where it goes.

Didn't even take 10 meters till she was run over, new record for sure.

Okayish start, honestly didn't expect an idol show. I mean, Zombieland Saga suggests something else imo :D
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

I'm really hoping this was a joke episode, I was expecting Moe Girls shooting guns off in the zombie apocalypse. But no.

I'll be upset if Tae is the only one who doesn't awake. I like her design the most.

Bro what a freaking start! I went into this anime not reading anything I thought it was a Zombie apocalypse anime. So when our MC left her house I thought she would come face to face with a Zombie and not a fucking car LOL

Looking forward to this anime. The manager is hilarious.

That intro is badass ! Probably my favorite so far in this year. And i Thought this will be another zombie survival show, but I'm totally wrong hahaha.

This show is totally hilarious, the manager is awesome. And I guess in each episode we will have a different genre for the idol. This episode started with Death Metal. Couldn't be more hilarious !

When I see the word "zombie" , I was like "YES! A NEW ZOMBIE ANIME AFTER HIGHSCHOOL OF THE DEAD!"

After I watched first episode, I am completely disappointed.
This is nothing but your usual idol anime but with zombin theme.

Although the characters is to my liking, but nah, I am dropping this.

I don't like zombie stuff at all, the only reason I considered watching this was because of Miyano Mamoru. It turned out completely different from what I was expecting, and in a very good and weird way. I'm so glad I gave this a chance.

I can see this getting boring after a few episodes if it doesn't change things a little, but for now that was honestly hilarious.

Ok Japan, please take a seat, we need to talk...
The trailer was confusing, but it didn't lead me to a suspicion we'll get to see something like _this_. xD
So far the animation and the psycho manager keep a certain level of enjoyment, but idk if I stick with this till the end. I want more zombies, less idols.
The manager tho... nghhhhhyesdaddy.

What an incredible way to start an anime, poor Sakura, she left the garden of her house and she died.
The surprise of this anime is that in the end it will be about a group of idols, but zombies idols, I think that twist gives it a unique touch.
The PV made me think this would be an anime similar to Gakkougurashi !. The poster also gives you an idea that it would be an anime of pretty girls fighting with zombies to survive.
Tatsumi is very suspicious, I think this guy is hiding something, I do not believe that Sakura has died 10 years ago, but maybe in the following episodes it is known what this manager hides.
The debut of "Death Musume" made me laugh so hard, the spectator who talks about the headbanging the girls do "it's as if they had their neck broken", also Tae finally loses control and attacks a spectator.
It seems that the next episode Sakura will have to give explanations to her teammates who woke up and in addition they are having a new concert.

Please let the first episode just be a troll. I don't want a slightly less generic idol anime. I want zombies ripping faces off of people and moe girls shooting up hordes of the undead.

You're already breaking into a taboo, may as well go the whole way am I right? AND THE INTRO! OMG the intro. Walks out of home, gets smacked by truck, we get some heavy metal music screaming in our face and a limp body on the ground. I wouldn't have cared if they ripped the story line right out of Dawn of the Dead, I would have loved this anime. But no, its just an idol anime.

Lets look at the teasers. They want an audience of people that want face eating zombies. " what will they do to survive," " How will they live." WHAT AUDIENCE DO YOU WANT! WHO ARE YOU EXPECTING TO KEEP WATCHING THIS WITH THOSE TRAILERS!!!

It's pretty hilarious. The animation is great as well. I thought this season is gonna be quite boring but this one kinda hypes me up.
I hope they will keep up with this unrestrained madness throughout the entire show and don't become a mediocre melodrama about becoming idols.

looking forward to their first death metal song!

Spring season gave us Magical Girl Ore with magical "girl" idols. Summer season was Gokudolls with yakuza idols. And now we have zombie idols?

I think I'm gonna love his. At least the first episode was hilarious.

Thought the episode would turn out to be like Gakkou Gurashi vibes and suddenly you get comedic action with thrills.

Btw is that how death metal sounds like coz its neckbreaking XD
When someone asks me why I like anime, I'd say Just Because.

It's not uncommon nowadays that teasers are for playing trick on audience's expectation rather than to convey exact information about the nature of the show.
A show doesn't have to be everything you have expected to be a good show.
If you really need something very specific and you don't want anything unexpected, my friendly advice is to watch old anime instead of risking yourself for new season anime. New season anime is all about that gambling thrill of surprise and disappointment.

Hahahahahaha, nope. My expectations are already crushed...
I hoped for a more serious zombie anime, guess that wasn't the case.
Guess I'll just stay for the voice of Mamoru Miyano.

If your expecting a good zombie anime about the walking dead eating the flesh of the living, the first 2 minutes were good. The rest isn't worth watching and is nothing more than a waste of time.
