Tae Yamada
Tae Icon
The long, black-haired zombie.

The only zombie out of the seven who is still not fully conscious.  As such, she is the most zombie-like of the group, always trying to gnaw on something. Although Tae only speaks in groans, she seems to be able to understand what the rest of the members are saying to a certain extent.  Because she is driven purely by instinct, Tae always ends up munching on Junko when close.

Tae Yamada (山田 たえ, Yamada Tae) is a mysterious girl with an unknown past. She's the only zombie who hasn't awakened. She's also a member of the idol group Franchouchou.

She is just titled as the Legendary Tae Yamada (伝説の山田たえ, Densetsu no Yamada Tae).


Tae has long, straight, dark prune hair with two parts slightly sticking out with her bangs are also straight with one piece sweeping down across her face and reddish-brown color.

Normally, Tae has bandages on her neck, chest, head, and upper leg with a loose black dress tied with a white rope. She also supports grey over-the-knee socks with black flats. As an Idol, she wears a long-sleeved purple striped shirt and a violet skirt with white frills.


Tae is the only one of the girls who has not fully regained consciousness, and so has remained a mindless zombie. As such, Tae is unpredictable and driven by pure instinct, doing things such as biting at the other members and launching herself at the crowd. However, she does seem to have some semblance of awareness, being able to at least understand the members to some degree and be cooperative enough to participate in the practices and performances. She also appears sentient enough to have a caring side for her fellow zombie idols.
