The show begins by introducing viewers to Sakura Minamoto, a high school student who wishes to become a zombie. Sakura’s hopes, and indeed her life, are cut short when she is hit by a truck and dies in a road accident. Sakura miraculously awakens ten years after her death and discovers herself to be a zombie with no recollection of her past life.
While trying to find out the cause of her resurrection as a zombie, Sakura meets Koutarou Tatsumi, a man who eventually sheds some light on her resurrection as a zombie. Koutarou explains that he has resurrected Sakura, as well as six other girls from various eras, with the intention of reviving the Saga Prefecture’s economy through a zombie idol group.
From then on out, Koutarou plays the role of a ruthless manager and begins arranging shows in order for his zombie idol group, Franchouchou, to achieve the peak of local fame.
The show is an absurd and comical take on Japanese idol culture, and it follows the members of Franchouchou as they strive to become legendary idols while concealing their undead identities.
