to be honest, if there are no more wicked plot twist happening in here, because of the nature of this anime for being weird and eccentric. i think i just got myself my first Idol anime that i will watch.

not that i mad, if something can trigger me to watch idol anime, i will gladly watch it, and the first 2 episode of this anime has done a great job to do that.

so, are you gonna stop? or you want to see how deep the rabbit hole goes?

If someone had even INSINUATED this could've been an idol anime, it would've been a hard pass for me. But one of my friends said "just watch the first 90s of the first episode" and I did with absolutely no other context about the show. it was only after i finished watching the episode i realized how hard i got baited

This is me as well. ^^^ I think I may enjoy this provided they stick with more of the zombie aspects than the idol bits.

Yes, I watched the first episode with no insight on what it was before getting into it. I'm not disappointed.

Pretty much. Idol shows don't call my attention much, and I started this because I thought it would be another Highschool of the Dead. Having watching the first two episodes, I regret nothing.

Would've never considered watching an Idol anime before this, but now that I've already been dragged into the ride I might as well stay

I think my first "Idol" anime was Perfect Blue. I expected Zombie Land Saga to be some hokey horror series. I didn't expect the idol aspect, but I don't care. Make it dumb and awesome!

This will probably be the only Idol anime I will ever watch. Unless there's a good one that discusses the exploitative nature of show business or something like that.

I've only been watching seasonal stuff for a year now, so I've got a few on my Crunchyroll queue to catch up on.

The only one that's been on recently was Music Girls from last season, which was OK, but had too many characters to really get invested into any bar the MC who was an assistant and not actually one of the idols. Good shout by @Tarotist Perfect Blue definitely could be considered an "idol" film.

I'm pretty flexible with my genres so as long as the characters are good I would have been good with this being what everybody thought it was going to be and I'm just as good with what it has turned out to be.

Nope, my first idol anime was idolmaster back in 2011, my fave idol series is Aikatsu! But Zombieland saga is definitely a unique idol series

It isn't my first one but indeed one of the most entertaining so far.

Never considered really watching one. Now that I'm three episodes in, I guess I might as well finish it. Been fun so far.

Other than this one, I've seen Key the Metal Idol, White Album, and Perfect Blue. I'm wondering if these might not be the best representations of the genre.

When i see the name "zombieland" for the first time i thought finally i found something like highschool of the dead . lol this is the only reason i watched the first episode
This is my first idol anime and i think it will be the last one , because i don't like this genre, i like serious dramatic show more .

Oh ya. The name and rumors about it got me to give it one ep and anything less than this or a full blown comedy or parody of the genre wouldn't make me watch one. That being said, this shit's glorious.

Yes, but if does focus on idol stuff like last episode I'm dropping. This is definitely something I can't stand watching it

This is my first "idol" anime if we want to call it that. The closest to music based anime I ever get is Sound Euphonium and Symphogear.
Don't believe the hype.

The first two episodes were possibly the best first two episodes of an anime I've ever seen so I'm going to be incredibly dissappointed if the rest of this show is just a normal idol show (rather than a theme of the week kind of a deal). That being said I'll still stick with it and it'll end up being the first idol show I've ever watched.

But it only had maybe 2 minutes most of them actually doing their idol thing. The rest was them hanging out and getting into trouble.

As for the main topic, kind of. Might be the first I finish so long as it stays funny. I started watching Show by Rock, but have bever finished it becuase I got to watching something else.

Well I already expected it because of the Trailer but yes it is my first Idol Anime and I love it so far. I don't know if I would like other Idol Shows though I guess I'll have to watch some now to see for myself.

I watched some of Love Live and found it very boring. Perfect Blue is more my kind of thing.

I was really disappointed when this turned out to be an idol anime. It's my fault for expecting it to be a serious zombie show.
