Ten years later, Sakura, along with six “legendary” girls from various eras of Japan’s history, are brought back as zombies by a man named Kotaro Tatsumi, who seeks to revitalize Saga Prefecture by putting together an all-zombie idol group that would become known as Franchouchou.”
In season two “Revenge,” it is revealed that Tatsumi summoned the girls to defend Saga from impending doom that was prophesied.
