Zombieland Saga is the fun tale of high school girl Sakura Minamoto who after being suddenly killed by a truck while heading to an audition, 10 years later is brought back as a Zombie! Sakura, along with six "legendary" idol girls from various eras of Japan's history are assembled in to an all-zombie idol group known as Franchouchou by a named Kotaro Tatsumi, who seeks to revitalize Saga Prefecture. These awesome photos were taken during Anime St. Louis 2019 by great photographer WhoWhatWren. Cosplayers: Saki Nikaido (RenChan), Junko Konno (YomuChan), and Yugiri (Digital Creme Cosplay).
