Zombieland Saga Season 2 Episode 8 Spoilers
In episode 7, a girl named Maimai mistakenly walks into the men’s section of a public bath. Incidentally, Kotaro is there at the time. Maimai slips on Kotaro’s soap and hits the back of her head. Believing her to be dead, Kotaro brings her to the Franchouchou house, intending to make her the 8th member of the group. This is when Maimai wakes up. It is revealed that she is a fan. And when she expresses her desire to join the group in exchange for keeping the fact that they are all zombies a secret, Kotaro eagerly accepts it.
Maimai convinces the group to perform at her school. She resolutely trains with them and is eventually accepted by the girls. However, before the performance, she discovers exactly what it takes to be a member of Franchouchou during a conversation with Sakura.
Although her first outing as a Franchouchou member is a massive hit, she declares that she will be graduating from the group after the performance. She later assures them that their secret is safe with her. Meanwhile, Shinta figures out that all the members of the group are dead. Episode 8 will likely focus on Yuugiri and depict her life in the Bakumatsu and the Meiji Restoration eras.
