Zombieland Saga. An idol anime version of a horror literature classic.
Hey, girls and guys. When i saw the just released first episode of the series, i had noticed something.
Has anyone noticed that the anime seems to be inspired by Mary Shelley's novel, Frankenstein ?
Think about it. Here's the premise of the anime. In the year 2008, high school girl Sakura Minamoto is abruptly killed in a traffic accident. Ten years later, Sakura, along with other girls from various eras, are brought back as zombies by a man named Kōtarō Tatsumi, who seeks to save the Saga prefecture by putting together an all-zombie idol group.
The manic music producer named Kotaro Tatsumi is basically a music producer version of Dr Victor Frankenstein whereas the zombie idols themselves are basically cute idol girl versions of Frankenstein's Monster.
Kotaro Tatsumi: It's alive !!!! It's alive !!!! It's....ALIVE !!!!!
Sakura Minamoto: I, Sakura, Sakura Minamoto. Me, idol pop star. Cute. Beautiful. Loved. Me, famous.
