    Episode 9

    No way in hell she's dying.

    And now, an episode about Saki as she belonged to a biker gang Dorami led by Maria. She died playing a game of chicken against a rival delinquent gang as she rode her motorbike off the cliff and died. Having been revived, she has a match with that biker from that gang, and she shows off just how daring she is as having died already, it made it much easier to follow through with that challenge. That just goes to show that even after everything that happened, it's always possible to make amends as Maria hasn't been thinking straight ever since Saki died.

    Next episode will be about Yugiri as she's the oldest member of the group, and presumably after that it will be about Tae as she's the only idol remaining whose death hasn't been explained.

      Episode 10

      Comin' around the mountain.

      As the girls prepare for their next concert at Arpino, instead of practicing they are doing some survival training in the mountains. Sakura is none too pleased about this development, especially the part where she's used as bait for the boar, but then she finally realizes the purpose of it as everybody's timing was just off, and this trip was designed to build the chemistry they needed to be successful idols moving forward. Quite an extreme way to do things, but whatever works, Tatsumi will do it. Then that ending there where Sakura gets run over again, that ought to make for some interesting drama.

        Episode 11

        Bearer of bad luck.

        That hit brought back Sakura's memories as a human, but also erased those of being a zombie as it's quite a bad time for that to happen with an upcoming gig. Poor Sakura had it rough working her but off only for something to happen on the day it matters the most to throw all that effort to waste from getting sick on the day of a play to pulling a muscle at the opening ceremony of the sports festival or having to help way too many old ladies on the way to the high school entrance exam. She was ready to pack it in until Tatsumi talked sense into her, and that just because she failed so many times doesn't mean that she has the right to just get up and leave all of the sudden. She sure has been unlucky in life, but she was brought back to do some unfinished business. One more episode left to go.

          Episode 12 (Finale)

          Taking the world by storm.

          And it ends with an epic concert where the girls had to overcome a lot of obstacles and bad luck along the way in order to put on their best performance. Tae took quite the initiative there to bring Sakura back from her former self into her current self. As if that wasn't enough, their performance at Arpino was sabotaged by Mother Nature as heavy snowstorms destroyed their stage, but even so they kept going as Saga's future was on the line. That was such a gutsy performance there going to show that nothing was going to stop these zombies seeing that their fans have braved the elements to come to this place. So it's only fitting that their performance reflects their perseverance.

          Overall, this show didn't get off to the best of starts, but once it hits its stride, it takes off. The beginning was bogged down by gimmicks and repetitiveness, which didn't make this show stand out aside from the fact that the idols are zombies. But once the show started to focus on the characters and their backstories, that's when this show got really good as the character development made for a fulfilling show. The character development was especially great there, and that's when this show is at its best. That said, the slow start meant that Yugiri and Tae didn't get the development that I was expecting. In all, the show takes awhile to get going, but once it hits its stride it's great.
