| The black short-haired zombie with flower ornaments.
The immovable leader of Idol Frill, the idol unit that was at the top during the 21st-century idol war. While she's good at singing, she is confident in her ability to dance. She is determined and is not afraid to speak her mind out. Extremely skeptical of Kotaro's schemes.
On a side note: the flowers on her head increased when she's in idol form.
Ai Mizuno (水野 愛 Mizuno Ai) was a popular idol in the early 2000s from the idol group called Iron Frill who died in 2008 when she was struck by lightning during a concert and a member of the idol group Franchouchou.
She is titled as the Legendary Heisei Idol (伝説の平成アイドル, Densetsu no Heisei aidoru)
Ai has short, dark, slate blue hair with two yellow flower clips that has bangs bunched together and light red eyes. Like the other zombies, her skin is a grayish-blue and red eyes, and most of her body is covered in bandages some what like a mummy.
Her casual outfit consists of an Idol-like school outfit: a navy-blue jacket over a pale yellow top with a blue plaid skirt and bow. She also wears dark grey socks and light brown school-shoes. As a Idol, Ai has a light sky-blue shirt with "3" written on it, wears a turquoise skirt, and has more flowers in her hair.
When alive, Ai demonstrated a cheerful and determined personality, but after becoming a Zombie she became rather skeptical and suspicious. As she gradually begins to warm up to her group, she begins to act like her old self again. She has shown a supportive side and great patience when aiding the other members with her idol experience. Because of how she died, she was afraid of lightning. When she got stuck by lighting again and comes out unharmed, along with a successful performance with Franchouchou at Saga Rock, she appears to have overcome her trauma.
