Episode 1: Good Morning Returns SAGA
In Zombie Land Saga Revenge Episode 1, “Good Morning Returns SAGA,” we find something shocking. Our favorite zombie idols have taken mundane jobs! Ai works at a squid processing plant, where she at least got to sing the company’s anthem. Sakura’s brushing cattle, and the rest had to get jobs, too. It seemed that their manager, Koutarou Tatsumi, booked them in a stadium that could hold 30,000 people. They sold 500 tickets. So now they have debt. But it’s worse than that. Koutarou has retreated into the bottle, which left Franchouchou on their own to decide what to do next. Did that failure of a concert in the stadium destroy their chances? Can they even try to perform without a manager? And what the heck is up with Koutarou?
Episode 2: The SAGA of an Almost-Broken Radio
In Zombie Land Saga Revenge Episode 2, “The SAGA of an Almost-Broken Radio,” Kotarou is back to his old self, and he’s trying to come up with ideas.

Then Kotarou mentioned that they’d have a special guest — someone named The White Ryu. Saki acted starstruck. How does Saki know The White Ryu? Who is the guy? And why is his hair like that?
Episode 3: The Acoustic SAGA of Love and Youth
In Zombie Land Saga Revenge Episode 3, “The Acoustic SAGA of Love and Youth,” Koutarou Tatsumi had some good news and some bad news for the members of Franchouchou. First, the good news: He had booked them as the opening act for an upcoming large concert! Next, the bad news: The group they’ll open for is Iron Frill — the group that Ai used to lead! Ai’s understandably nervous about being that close to her old group until Koutarou says she won’t be in that concert. He doesn’t want her that close. So, Ai hands off her role as lead choreographer and group senpai to Junko. Junko felt honored, but her experience was as a solo idol. Can she possibly fill Ai’s shoes? Especially as the group they’re opening for got to where they are in no small part due to Ai’s leadership — before her death by lightning?
Episode 4: Pure-Hearted Electric SAGA
In Zombie Land Saga Revenge Episode 4, “Pure-Hearted Electric SAGA,” Junko and Sakura agreed to keep Iron Frill’s offer to Ai secret. However, Junko just could not put it aside.

Will they even settle on which song’s they’ll perform? Or will they repeat the disaster that almost turned Koutarou into Eren Yeager?
Episode 5: Little Bodda Bope SAGA
In Zombie Land Saga Revenge Episode 5, “Little Bodda Bope SAGA,” Lily Hoshikawa does the unthinkable: She usurped Koutarou Tatsumi in their morning meeting!

She wanted to compete on a national talent contest to raise awareness of Franchouchou! With the rest of Franchouchou enthusiastically behind her, she arrived at the venue. Only she wasn’t the only one with the bright idea to compete. Who is this other person? Does he represent a threat? And what does Sakura Minamoto see him do when he thought no one was watching?

Like, to the tune of ¥20,000,000 (or about $185,000 US). How can they ever pay that back? With that specter hanging over them, they went out on their errands. It was Tae Yamada’s turn to buy groceries. However, she managed to attract the attention of reporter Shinta Okoba. What will he see if he trails her all day? Could he make trouble for Franchouchou? And who else will Tae meet on her grocery run?

Unfortunately, she could read the signage and ended up walking into the men’s bath. Koutarou Tatsumi chose that moment to lose control of his bar of soap. Unerringly, Maimai’s foot found it, and she slammed head first into the tile floor. What will Koutarou do with the apparently dead young woman lying before him?
