Zombieland Saga Season 2 Episode 2 Spoilers
In the season premiere, all the girls except for Tae now have regular jobs. It is revealed that after their performance at Arpino, Franchouchou witnessed a meteoric rise. The CDs of their album sold like hotcakes. They were booked to perform at Ekimae Fudosan Stadium, which can host 30,000 people. However, on the day of their performance, the girls discover that only 500 tickets had been sold. This put the group in massive debt, and the girls have been working towards decreasing it since.
Meanwhile, Kotaro seems to have lost all his manic energy and is perpetually intoxicated. Sakura tries to convince him to help them but fails. The girls go up on a stage in a death metal club and begin to perform in front of a hostile audience. Kotaro shows up after finally realizing that his purpose for doing this was never about revitalizing Saga. He simply wanted to support the girls. The episode ends as Kotaro returns to his former self. In episode 3, he might get them another gig at a mid-tier music venue so the girls can start their journey back to fame. Sakura might learn who he really is.
