"Death metal" takes on a new twist in zombie idol TV anime currently airing in Japan and streaming on Crunchyroll
October 10, 2018 is World Zombie Day, and undead idol TV anime ZOMBIE LAND SAGA is celebrating with the release of a new key visual that more accurately reflects the tone and tenor of the series. The new key visual (above) depicts the girls both in their zombie forms and in their stage costumes and makeup, and the tagline has changed from "We want to live" to "We want to LIVE!".
ZOMBIE LAND SAGA is directed by Munehisa Sakai and features animation production by MAPPA. The series is currently broadcast in Japan and is also available via streaming on Crunchyroll, who describe the story of ZOMBIE LAND SAGA as follows:
A typical morning. The usual music. Their normal lives. The peace these seven girls experience will suddenly be destroyed. By the living dead... zombies. A reality that they never wanted a part of, an amazing and terrifying zombie world. They all share one wish: "We want to live." These girls will struggle through this saga, in order to achieve a miracle. MAPPA, Avex Pictures, and Cygames team up to bring you a juicy, 100% original anime. A timeless shocker for all audiences, a brand new style of zombie anime, will soon rise.
