This was a great anime the end seemed to almost completely loop back to where episode 1 it was incredibly funny, then became heart warming, and ended perfectly

They didn't show Tae and Onee backstories.

I didn't get exactly what is the "save saga" thing? I have some ideas in mind, though.

There're few times he's funny, but most of the times producer-san is very annoying. Would have been better (for the sake of enjoyment) if he weren't THAT annoying. IMO.

I think that if it weren't for Tae and the dog I would have enjoyed much less this anime.

7 to 8 /10

PS.: Best episode: 05

I couldn't decide whether I wanted to give this a 7 or an 8. I think it is more of a 7, but I'm giving it an 8. I think it's because I find this to be memorable and unique in a way.


I might make a review out of this. I'm looking forward to a potential continuation of the story.

this was a cool twist on the idol genre, and enjoyable in its way. i hope there's a season two, cause there's a lot more you could go off of. got the whole thing with the reporters, the bartender who seems to know yuugiri, and that koutarou knew sakura before she died. man this is a good 8/10 for me

Well at least the cliffhanger ending doesnt matter since the staff said I guess through a tweet that more projects were in the works. The tabloid guy is onto them, the connection between Sakura and "Inui" was shown, and we still don't have goofy back stories for Tae and Yugiri.

I enjoyed this a lot. The idol stuff was typical but better than some others in the genre (cough cough* Ongaku Shoujo). Comedy was over the top and hilarious. Had some dramatic moments too. Really just a balanced blend of everything. Also like how they broke the mold with the metal shit, and the rap battle and whatnot.

I'll probably give it a solid 8/10. I'd probably give it a 9 but episode 8 caused a bit of "controversy", and brought out the self-insert fanfic fanatic SJWs who otherwise wouldn't have bothered with the show or anime in general. They crawled out of the wood work the same way yaoi shippers are always lurking around Attack on Titan and Haikyuu threads.

That aside it was still a great show and I'm looking forward to seeing what direction they take the story in on these future projects they're working on.

A good ending for a good show! It was nice how in the end Sakura remembered everything again and that scene were they are cuddling together before the performance is too precious.

Waiting for a season 2 already!!!

A satisfactory finale, a pity that remained unclear on some aspects, a clarification would have served. Perhaps a special future? S2? The mystery of Tae remains.

Better than expected. I give it an extra point for being genuinely funny sometimes and not """funny""". It is ultimately an idol anime, but with some slight differences. That made it worth it.

Solid show. Ultimately more about idols then zombies (I still have no idea why this has an R rating on MAL and TV-MA from Funimation, it's barely PG-13/TV-14), but the zombie antics help the idol stuff.

8/10

Oh boy that sure was a really open ending! But what an amazing ending, we finally got a slight glimpse what role Tatsumi Koutarou plays in this and what relation he has to Sakura. Really interesting if you ask me.

To be honest this is probably one of the most interesting concepts in terms of idol anime I've seen yet! Really loved the humour and progression and all the different character's personalities.

Really do hope to see a continuation on this!

Fantastic show but I'm a bit disappointed it couldn't keep up the level of quality we saw in those first two episodes (easily one of the strongest starts to a show in the history of anime). If the rest of the show had been like those first two episodes it wouldn't have surprised me to see this show make the Top 100 on MAL if not the Top 50 despite technically being an idol show.

episode 12 was filled with feels. imagine looking like an idiot by using "saving saga with zombie idols" as an excuse to fulfill your highschool crush's dreams. damn this shit sad.

That scene with Sakura and all her zombie girls together resting for their performance showed how close they've became altogether.

I've grown to this show alot and makes me wanna ad to my favorites.

Ending was good, hopefully Season 2 comes soon....

10/10

This was a fun little series. It has good character and a decent plot. I hope next season would be more focused on Tatsumi and Tae. They are the only two characters whose past was never really explored.

Mmmmmmm, I'm feeling mixed on the series overall. It started off tremendously strong but ended up as just another standard idol show. It went from an easy 9 to like a 7.

This was not a good anime, it wasn't a terribly bad one either. First few episodes were simply brilliant, but after that? Well, it devolved into a simple cute idol girls singing and having fun. At least under the very shallow surface. The character arcs? Completely pointless. Nothing was done, no resolution, nothing. The "people from my past can't know my current self" trope has been done to death, and excluding this trope and ignoring it is actually the better way to go about things.

And i'd like it if they did something else than that super faggoty idol shit. Singing about rainbows, hearts and fluffy rabbits. I swear, otakus are the biggest faggots out there for liking this girly shit.
I don't like rap, but that rap thing would have been fun, death metal also, just not idol shit and it was taken seriously as it progressed as well :( One of the shows utter failures was progressively getting serious about things.

Well, were your your eyes shut during this episode the whole time? Okay, there was only a 99% chance that this is really where they know each other from, but still this was like no challenge to come up with. It also negated my prior theory that Kotaro may be a zombie, because he aged...



No offense, but I'm not sure where your reply to my post came from as I have no idea how your reply relates to my post.

It was already blatantly obvious from the beginning that Kotarou knows Sakura. Now that the anime decided to show a glimpse of their past with that one quick flashback in this episode, I simply want to know more about what happened to them in the past. My post was very short and simple. I don't see how you could've misunderstood it.

Have I opened my eyes during this episode? Of course I did, that's why I said what I said. lol They literally showed only a 10 second flashback. Sakura even referred to the guy as Inui-kun. Who the hell is Inui-kun? It's probably Kotarou's real name. Why is he hiding his real identity then? Probably for Sakura's sake. Why is he helping Sakura become an idol? Who knows. By the way, there's already a 99% chance you've noticed but if not, I'm being sarcastic.


Easy. He knew she would become a zombie after her death and has been training to become the coach to be able to make her into a proper idol after she woke up and regained her life(unlife?). The particulars of how to become a zombie is a question for another time i guess.

And he more than likely has a major crush on Sakura. Well, obviously..

It just dawned upon me: Kotaro's character is atually just a copypasta, because he is completely build up on the voice actors performance in Yuri on Ice. Like the same level of insanity and impulsiveness. Still the best male lead of the show.

Yeah cliffhanger hints towards a special at least, but it's so abrupt I definitely believe in a second cour.

Overall good comedy, good drama, good characters, and lots of showcasing Saga as well as Saga-ben. Seems it was popular too so not only neeks watched it. Great job.

Wow i didn't expect that, Sakura and Koutarou got histories back in the past, i'm so happy for those girls it's i'm rooting for the real idol group, There are things that left unexplained like Yuugiri's and Tae's death, i want some background stories in the next season if there's any.


Overall score 8/10

Aww man, I've been waiting for someone to slap Sakura since ep 11. (=w=) I'm glad Yuugiri slapped some sense into her.

Overall, this is pretty okay~
Hope there's a second season that explains everything.

I started this series by seeing the opening of Sakura getting hit by the truck and decided to see what happens next. I haven't watched an idol anime before but this was very enjoyable to watch. The CGI wasn't good but getting past that and watching the rest was great. I enjoyed a lot of the songs and like how they incorporated about death since they are zombies. Loved the loyal metal fans sticking through and becoming some of the biggest fans of Franchouchou.

My one major complaint about the series is how people just assume it's a doppelganger of a friend/family member of the past and how everyone seems to not recall the members past accomplishments through music and TV (people just not recognizing Lily despite being a TV star that died in 2011 or how Ai looks exactly the same). To me it's mind boggling that some many people just forget about this famous person who died in the past ten years yet there are people who look exactly like them in this idol group. I'm glad that at the very end the journalist looks at the pictures from Franchouchou and previous pictures of Ai, Junko and Lily and remarks "Something isn't right", it at least shows that not everyone in this world just randomly forgets these people.

I understand why everyone thinks Tae is best girl after watching this episode. Hopefully with that ending scene involving the journalist, we'll get a 2nd season dealing with Yuugiri, Tae, and Kotaro's past along with the girls trying to solve the problem of people actually realizing that they are deceased and maybe change their looks. Overall, I think this series is a 7 or 8/10.

Yeyyyyyy~

once you get past the weirdness of it in the beginning, the series grows on ya haha.

OMGOSSSHHHHHH, BUT KOTARO LOVED SAKURA BACK IN THEIR SCHOOL DAYS?!?!??!!! *O* awweeeee TT-TT juicy scoop lol. Even tho we all knew there had to have been something, it's always nice to have that romantic news, kekeke. Guess he wasn't the truck driver after all lulz

Tae-chan is such a sweetheart <3
There it is~ the connection of the past that Lily, Ai, and Junko gotta cover up :X

S2 pls :D

I can't rate something that's not clearly unfinished yet, I'll have to see season 2 for that matter so I could understand more as in HOW HE MADE THEM ZOMBIES?! What's his trick to find dead bodies of each girl from different ears or years?! Also what was that sattelite point of view?! The snow storm? No that's bigger than just some snow storm, also the way the day counters where going down was also a hint for something I assume? Season2 Confirmed?

I have to admit this...

I started watching this anime because I had seen the opening on YT and I had thought "This will be a really crazy show, let's watch something weird!"

But even though this is not really my style (I just prefer dark, psychological, horror anime), I fell in love with the girls, I enjoyed all funny moments and I'm really hoping there will be season two!

They didn't show everything because it's a setup for S2. Also the save Saga thing I think was because of the population dying out or something.

Can't say it's a bad anime but it's not something outstanding either. It started in a very pretentious way so I hoped for some extreme combination of dark comedy and creepy moments since this anime with the same rating as guro/ecchi are but no - we got some typical idol melodrama with pretty weak comedy elements and typical slogans instead of some big idea and actual plot. Sakura's death in first episode was unusual and represented high standard which developers and author didn't handle obviously. This anime is a typical product of marketing - original package (zombie idols) for average content (your typical slice of life full of cuties). Shame, MAPPA.

Another anime finished but this one is a special one as it's my first idol type of anime.I honestly loved it.When the bad weather and that building makes you want to somehow help the building stand up or clear the weather you know you're into the show wholeheartedly.
There must be a second season or an OVA as season 1 left us with kind of a cliffhanger.
I'm going to post a review on this and all my watched anime,but I must first take my lazy-ass personality and create them.
For this great creation I must give a great note so 9/10 for sure.
Come on man,where is that Noragami season 3 masterpiece.We want it, Bones!

Yet another Ordeal of a performance where the stage breaks down on them, but they didn't give up and managed to pull off an outstanding performance

It had few flaws but overall an awesome anime

Got me with an idol show...Clever Gurl...
Still, this was pretty entertaining. The music, the cg performances, backstories and mystery that will hopefully unravel in the 2nd season next year... AND THE SILLY TATSUMI SAMA!!! MANAGER BAKA! lol Good show. It was certainly original.

I made a mistake and bing this series thinking it's completed.

I freaking loved it and later come to realized there is a sequel. NOOO! I hate be the one waiting for a 2nd season. With the time gap, it won't feel the same unless I still remember vibes and feels from the series by then.

Marathon a series without checking MAL was a MISTAKE. Great anime tho. :L
