Zombie Land Saga – Second Chances (Episodes 5-8)

What’s happened since last time? The group continues to try to break into the mainstream with a number of stunts and opportunities. First, they manage to score a commercial for a chicken restaurant that has Saki all excited. Then they compete in some sort of mud games, which also floats Saki’s boat.

There was some interesting developments with their pasts and the way they died. Most notably, was how they managed to hit us in the feels in episode eight. You keep your chin up big guy, it’s going to be all right from here…

Have your feelings changed? This series was a bit of a surprise for me. I expected the worst but was pleasantly surprised. Since then I think it’s only got better. It’s weird and bizarre, but it’s also cute and funny. I’m really starting to enjoy their manager too, which is something I never thought I’d say.

Favourite character so far? Saki is still the best girl for me in this series. I especially enjoyed how she started shouting with the manager when they were getting excited about the commercial and the mud games. That said, I am really starting to enjoy all of the characters.

Who do you want to see more of? We need a little more backstory for some of the girls, and definitely for Sakura, who we’re still not sure why she’s in the group as all the others are seasoned professionals, apart from Saki who was a biker chick…

Are you going to continue watching? Definitely, I think this series may have even jumped up a tier. It’s one that I am looking forward to watching and, dare I say it, I’d watch a second season based on what I’ve seen so far. Who knew zombies and idols would go together so well…
