I shrieked with laughter when that head popped off....although when you think of, due to their actions, we are pretty much just back to the status quo at the end of the episode with nothing having changed. Since that poor woman lost her memory.

I'm getting really triggered by these subs lack of proper grammar.

When a title is used in place of a name, it's supposed to be capitalized.

Subs: Awaken returner! Awaken dreamer!
What they should say: Awaken, Returner! Awaken, Dreamer!

In this context they are used as titles

Bait and switch! I've been bamboozled!

Well, guess the idol music is in for the long haul, when I know Japan has more music styles than metal, hip hop and idol music -they even have country music over there, ffs!

In fairness, they're still having zombie antics, but Tae was even well-behaved during the concert, wtf?
Was episode 1 a lie?

Time to go soothe my heart with White Zombie...

The quality of the CGI plays to the anime's favor imho. Often times it's jarring watching something and being like "that's stiff, normal humans don't move like that." But they're zombies so looking stiff and unnatural seems to fit.

I mean, he is a madman that resurrected seven girls to be idols to save Saga, and he seems confident on the project. I expect anything from him, tbh.

Wait...do zombies have bodily fluids in them? Tae has a sleep bubble...

Lol I knew Tatsumi was going to get punched eventually...

"Administering dermal patches to people who aren't zombies is considered practicing medicine." What have we done?

Well the CGI animation is back, but I don't mind it since the song is fun. And...THEY'RE PRACTICING MEDICINE!

Aren't zombies susceptible to heat? I do know that you kill em with fire...Hot Springs might replicate that...

GOD DAMN IT VOLDO! YOUR SOUL IS IN TAE, ISN'T IT!?

Fun episode with that dose of horror that we wanted to see. Sadly, the police officer didn't appear this episode. Guess it isn't a running gag.

I didn't like this episode that much. After the promising first two episodes where they did some unusual genres for idols, now it seems like they're just performing the same pop song over and over again, which is a bit disappointing. The show is still somewhat enjoyable with the characters and the humour and so on, so I won't drop it, but the best thing about it for me is currently the absolutely amazing opening, which is just a bit sad. Also, if they don't want others to know they're Zombies, why are they singing about Zombies?

Right now my fave characters are Tatsumi Kotarou and The Legendary, Yamada Tae because she's fucking adorable.

This beginning of the episode was just so-so but the onsen scene where Sakura's head came off and all the hijinks that ensued were the best. I wish this series had more of that. It's the first idol series I've seen (from what I recall) since idol series aren't really my thing but the concept of this one is pretty funny.

I would be curious to know what are the reasons for their deaths
We know that Sakura was overthrown by a van so they died at a very young age Lily probably was not 13 years old and yugiri seems to be barely 20 years old

So looks like we are sticking with standard idol style music and cgi. It didn't look as bad as last ep tho. This ep was a lot more enjoyable as the whole than the last anyway. The grin on Saki's face when Junko said she wanted to go into the hot spring was perfect, and the last part turning into a horror scene for the ceo lady was great.

I love how we only see Koutarou with his sun glasses on. I rofled when he was still wearing them in the sauna.

cute and got me hyped easily, the characters are growing on a good not too slow and not too fast pace and so is the show as a whole.

Koutarou is somewhat less annoying than the first 2 episodes not normal by any means but good enough

also when I watched the first episode and took a look at all the girls I had a feeling that Saki is gonna be one of my best girls this season and I wasn't wrong

Saki is best girl. You can't change my mind.

Good episode!!! A lot of people aren't liking this, because this is an indeed an idol show and was only drawn in due to the rap episode.

Anyways, fans will continue to support Zombie Land Saga either way!

I was baited with zombies into the idol trap but boy am I happy I did. This show kills me. The hot spring accident and ensuing madness was hilarious. I am glad they brought up the mystery of why they are zombies. I wonder if its just poking fun at the idea of zombies in Japan or if its actually a plot point? Thats the real beauty of this anime is you never know if it is a trope point or a plot point.

Really like that horror scene in the Hallway... Really well done.

I really want to know how they become Zombies. Wonder if Kotaro will explain it...

Oh right, really like that each girl has their own accent.

This show is kinda meh for me. It's hilarious but I don't like any of the characters. I don't hate them I just don't like them. I'll probably keep watching for the comedy but parts of this show make me cringe. The art is pretty and the music is ok. To me it's just average. Fun though.

I'm disappointed, I was thinking ep 3 was just a set back to help we bond with the girls who would be helped by some far and betew eps, but this is as serious as ep 3.

We won less crude humor, look: Ep 1: shovr on the back, bullet in the heart, something on the head. Ep 2: bullet on the window and taking captivity seriously. Ep 3: flyng zombie idol. Ep 4:punch on the guts.

I still like it as idol anime but they are losing great opportunity's of being able to use this kind of things to do jokes.

Sakura could break her head at the fall again, zombie damage and smell could be a thing, they could bee in situations where suicide, drowing and rooting are a thing. The manager could go more inhuman and use chain that the idol avoid somehow...

Just Saga can do it but it chose to not :/

Better than last week's episode but oh boy, I'm beginning to think the first two episodes might have been flukes. I'm not an idol fan, and the first two episodes made me actually like the show because I thought they would tackle new genres every now and then.

Also thought there might have been some meta about how the idol industry actually treats its idols like shit and how they're pretty much dead inside, but I guess not.

So many good expressions this episode.



Also Tae's Shaft headtilting.



Mamoru Miyano is still killing it as Kotaro. Man, how can be he so based? Loved the contrast of how callous he normally is with the zombies, yet how polite he was with the lady of the pharmaceutical company. And speaking about her, that last part of the episode was hilarious. The poor woman ended as bad as the Fighter from Goblin Slayer.
the facial expressions definitely is one of the show's selling point

The onsen didn't go as planned for the girls, but it was funny to watch for some reason XD I feel bad for the lady who got traumatized by the Franchouchou girls though...

For sure, this episode was better than the previous one :3 can't wait for more!

Feels like they keep suggesting there may be something darker going on in the background (like how in this episode they mentioned its weird they got brought back because bodies are normally cremated in Japan). I hope this actually has a pay off, there's nothing more disappointing then a dropping a bunch of hints that lead nowhere.

Didn't know those plasters are considered medical treatment in Japan, we use that all the time after playing a football game etc.

Increasingly disappointing as a comedy, there's only one joke. Perhaps it was primarily planned as an idol show and the surreal comedy was just an addendum, an aesthetic choice. In that case this shouldn't be a criticism

Anyone else got the feeling that the dance/idol segments feel a little bit off? I noticed that in the 3rd episode alreay, but now it looks like the dancing parts are made in 3D sometimes and then 2D again. It's a bit confusing to watch, to say the least...

I figured as much after last ep, but looks like they're just going for normal idol routines from now on. I don't think I'm alone in saying, I wanted to see them keep switching up styles.

And they did it again. I was expecting more.

Not so much the dance, but previous ep was obviously poking a bit of fun at idol drama.

Totally forgot that Tae-chans first name is Yamada, which kinda is the universal name for idiots in anime.

I think she is already "awakened", but maybe 'special'? Also it may be so that she never awakens, since that would totally destroy her reputation of saving the day by accident.

And I wouldn't waste too much thought on what might be behind anything, because even the characters themselves are asking those questions and never get an answer. Like how are their tongue's even so red, when the rest is naturally green/grey or where Sakura's hole went...

The majority of the episode was weak. If I wanted to watch some idol show, which I totally don't, I'd just be watching love live or something. I don't like how the main focus is being a regular idol show now. It's nothing new or interesting, and not what I was hoping from this anime. They are zombies and they shouldn't downplay the awesome comedic side to that, the greatness we saw just 2 episodes ago. But ok, the horror scare was a welcomed change of pace. It could've been funnier but I really appreciate what it was going for. In any case, maybe I'll warm to their character dynamics and chemistry, but for now I'm feeling negative every time Sakura says "we must practice" and people come on board with her and she starts saying their names (GOD that is done to death in anime). More funny wacky zombie stuff is what I need. Yamada Tae is the one saving this show right now!

literally only watching for Kotaro's Japanese voice actor. His delivery is actually really funny and one of the only voices recognizable to me in a subbed anime.

It looks like it's going to be a while until I get used to the opening theme song, the ending is already tingling my ears no problems though.
I hope they have a serious discussion on how they really became zombies, there's some controversy surrounding their manager, the way he always has his glasses on makes me think he is some zombie as well, trying to hide his creepy eyes, probably making makeup all the time too.
The CGI was just as horrible in this episode too, I hope they get over it.
