On Wednesday 5/1/2019, I went to a screening of the anime Zombie Land Saga from 8:00 pm to around 10:00 pm. Without going into much detail of the plot, in the blog post I will discuss how this anime reflected the importance of Idols in Japanese culture.
What is an idol? In Japan, as well as some other East Asian countries like Korea. Idols are groups of young people, often of the same gender, who are manufactured by music producers.
In this anime, the idols are zombies. It is strange, I know. But, it reflects on large amount of control that the producers have on idols.
Altogether, going to this international event helped me to learn about idols, something I knew little about.
