THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
From the current main character cast, I think Tae Yamada is the craziest one. Even as a zombie, she's out of control.

Looks like we got some dancing in public with the cast in normal clothes. Fun stuff. Tae's movements looked the most zombie-like I love how they bailed after being confronted by that officer guy. Police sucks.

Didn't think it was as good as the first two episodes. Wasn't nearly as funny. God, that CGI was so bad XD
Tae-Chan and Kotaro are still the best in a mediocre episode

Wasn't as funny as the first two episodes but I got a good laugh out of it a few times nonetheless

"A GO A GO A GO GO GO GO GO GO" I swear Mamoru is the last dumb ass on this planet LOOOOOOOL

And how the hell did they get Tae-chan to behave at the end of that performance xDDD Also I died when Sakura got the crap slapped out of her for something that she herself was going to say lol

yep, not nearly as funny as before; had some really good moments, but none of the really good stuff from before. I was afraid of this: when they focus on being too idol-like the show might not be as fun. Hoping they continue to change things up and can pull off some really good bits in the future. The cg was terrible. Hope they can avoid that as much as possible moving forward. I felt like director wasn't quite as funny this time either. They were really pushing a couple of bits with him that weren't as solid as before. Anyways, still decent but really hoping for better.

Was the CGI a parody of Love Live's performances. It was awkward as heck to see the main cats animated in CGI while the rest of people were hand drawn, normally it ends being the opposite, lmao. Also, for such a soft-spoken person, Junko sure has a powerful voice.

I was fearing my boi Policeman A wouldn't appear this episode, but thankfully he did, even if it was at the end. Sad he didn't shoot anyone this time.

I was afraid of this, the show going to the classic pop stuff eventually and looks like it's already here. A big step down for me, the wacky performances were one of the highlights. Well, I'm gonna stay anyway cause Mamoru keeps giving it all, gotta appreciate at least that.

Oof that CG. I wouldn't have minded if it was less than stellarly traditionally animated, like it doesn't have to be Idolmaster levels of detail. Throughout the performance I couldn't help but think "I hope there is a narrative purpose and not just because CG is far more convenient".

Producer dude's attempts at English was pretty funny, but other than that I wasn't really feeling this ep especially compared to last week's.
I need sleep.

Not as funny as the first 2 episodes. Looks like it's turning into a traditional idol show, which is a shame. The act went wrong, but not in a hilarious manner like the last 2 episodes, and only served to end the drama of the 2 girls who didn't want to be there to come and rescue the performance.

I thought the CG was OK, anyone who thinks it's terrible haven't been watching HIMOTE HOUSE from this season, now that's terrible!

I wish they keep doing the crazy stuff they did in ep.2, instead of going into the Love Live direction.
If the next episode is gonna be an onsen episode already, then it really get me worrying...
The problem with a lot of anime is that they are not bold enough to be crazy all the way through.
They're afraid of leaving the audience behind if they've gone too far on a single, original vision, so they lighten everything with familiar drama and feel-good messages.

Yeah for some reason it was hilarious and mysterious at the same time. I wonder why Yuugiri did it so? Was it to maintain her postion in the group as the elder sister chara? Or was it just faulty?
When someone asks me why I like anime, I'd say Just Because.

Weakest episode so far. Not a massive fan of the CG singing and dancing. Hopefully this isn't the direction the series continues to take. For me, the whole appeal of the first two episodes was how they played on the fact that they were zombies. If they end up singing and dancing like a normal girl group, it becomes just another idol anime. Hopefully it goes back to being wacky and weird as the series progresses.

Not as good as the previous episodes, the CGI could have been worse but it wasn't great. The rest of the episode was still good but had less funny moments.

Today's episode was a great tribute to the horrible CG's of the idol animes.
As always producer Kotaro and his strange way of talking to the girls, he brings out their good laughs, congratulates them on their success with the rap concert, especially Sakura who was the star of the concert.
Now the girls must prepare a guerrilla concert with only one day of rehearsal.
The girls the first decision they make as a group of idols is to name Saki as leader and decide the name of their group of idols, which will be Franchouchou, thanks to the contribution of Tae. The moment Yuugiri mentions the smell made me laugh a lot, the reaction of the girls added to when they smell to see if there is no bad smell. For the bad luck of the girls, they do not manage to do their routine, the most funny moment was the bitch slap to Sakura, why? she was going to say the same thing that Yuugiri said, poor Sakura, she did not deserve it, besides Ai and Junko are still in their depressive mood. In the end the girls do their concert but the fall of Lily ruins the synchronization of the group, but Ai and Junko join and manage to finish the show but without the impact they had achieved in previous episodes.
This episode only had some good moments, it was not as funny and good as the previous episodes, but I think it goes hand in hand with the girls failing in their street show.
The next episode will be an episode of hot springs, yes zombie fanservice, I look forward to it.

I enjoyed this episode about as much as the others (aka a lot), but for totally different reasons. Episodes 1 and 2 were less cast-focused and more "Time to throw them into a show and watch the hilarity of them trying to pull it off, failing, and then doing so badly it somehow becomes legendary!"

This episode, on the other hand, felt more...character driven? We got a lot more moments with the other girls in focus, and the group has some great chemistry. I laughed a lot during times of them just conversing tbh. (also producer-san giving up with writing the title in english, lmfao)

The performance itself wasn't much special in terms of hilarity, also the cg wasn't the best oof, but 'hilarity' didn't seem like that's what it was going for, unlike episode 1 and especially episode 2.

I can see why some people would be turned off, since the past eps have been more focused on hilarity and almost parodying idol tropes, but i think they handled it really well. this cast is god tier, man, and it shows.

still loving it, 9/10

(also, is THE LEGENDARY YAMADA TAE slowly getting...somewhat more coherent? she's still definitely a zombie, but she seemed a lot more intelligent this episode. for a brain-dead zombie, that is.)

EDIT: oh my god, the possibility of this being an elaborate Love Live! parody episode is also an option (the title possibly implying it, the CGI would be a damn clever reference, and the overall somewhat generic "we've gotta get this together and be a proper idol group!" tone the episode had) and if it was...hats off to ya, zombieland. that'd be damn god tier levels of parody!!

Yuugiri and Tae both remain as my favorite characters. But this episode wasn't as good as before, really. The CG sucked the life out of the animation. First part was good tho, I just wish that second part was less idol and more zombie.

Sometimes mocking a trope can turn to just be playing it straight.

If this episode was intended to be bad, well it did its job.

Franchouchou. Nice band name (what does it even mean?). Anyway even though their performance was a disaster, I actually liked it. Dance chronography was pretty awesome. That song was nice too. Glad to see Ai and Junko joining them later.
Btw Tae is the best zombie grill.

Even if the bad CGI was meant to make fun of bad CGI in other idol shows, it was still not pleasant to look at.

Like others mentioned, this episode wasn't as good as the first two, hopefully the next episode will be a bit better.

I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

this is what i expected in Idol anime, a bunch of idol singing, the CG is not even that bad, as long as the song is good, im in. and that little fans is cute too, erything in here is cute.

and Yuugiri came up with the question of the day right there. everyone just laugh nervously, did they stink though?, they even take a bath so i think not.

and please just let Densetsu no Yamada Tae being like that for the rest of series.

she just look cute.

Am I the only one conflicted because of this episode?


The first and second episodes where so weird and out there that even though I didn't know what to make of them I still loved them and found the show hilarious.


This one was weak tea. The crappy pop concert was half the episode and we didn't get any weirdness...

well maybe when the geisha slapped her. I have no idea what happened there.

I think they got the wrong myth with the name.

Broken down the name is Fran / Chou / Chou

Fran = short for Frankenstein

Chou = slang that roughly translates to super or awesome.


So they're saying we are the super super Female Frankensteins!


Which they are not because they're each made of their own bodies not bits and pieces from all over the place... at least I hope they weren't LOL!

I'm going to be really ticked off if this turns into a normal idol show. It had such amazing potentional with the first two episodes.

If it does turn into a normal idol show, I do hope they at least give the producer more screen time to make up for the lack of comedy.

Honestly with how everything was animated traditionally except their performance, I am certain that they're doing it on purpose just to make fun of other idol shows.

I don't like to hate on CGI, but here it really took away some of the enjoyment.

Still a nice episode overall.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

Some people seem to forget that this is still a idol show even with the crazy comedy it has. Because i am already familiar with love live, bandori and those kind of shows i really enjoyed this episode. The cgi made remember the first season of love live were it was really bad but i have seen worse.. i dont know if it was their goal tho since they could have been doing parody of other idol anime so it didnt bother me at all.

oh no, no, no, damn it, please. i really hoped it would totally deprive from all the idol crap and this episode just ruined my hopes, what a disappointment...

i thought they will do some sort of "every episode different music style" kind of shit, but they went with the most typical idol crap drama with this cgi (which i hope was just mockery of what idol shows do)
