    I think this project warrants a new thread. I already posted the new teaser video in the general thread today, but I expect more news soon. I'm not sure if it's going to be a movie or a series, or maybe something different. I do know I am very excited though, and I can't wait to see what it's all about.

    Let's see what we already know about this project so far.

    Leading role
    Saito Asuka

    Confirmed participating members
    Hori Miona, Yoda Yuuki, Hoshino Minami, Akimoto Manatsu, Yamashita Mizuki, Umezawa Minami, Sato Kaede, Yoshida Ayano Christie, Terada Ranze, Ozono Momoko, Kubo Shiori, Sakaguchi Tamami, Nakamura Reno, Watanabe Miria, Ito Riria, Ito Junna, Mukai Hazuki, Suzuki Ayane, Iwamoto Renka.

    Biting into an apple, new project “Zombie” developments

    During the “Nogizaka National Summer 2018 Tour ~ 6th year Birthday Live” performance on the 8th of July at Meiji Jingu / Chichibunomiya, the new project “Zombie” was announced. Now, the official Youtube channel has opened, and a 3 minute clip has been released.

    At the same time as the announcement of the project, the official Twitter and Instagram accounts were started, and in spite of the enigmatic 1 minute video clip, the total amount of followers exceeded 28.000 people.

    And now, the project’s official Youtube channel is open, and a 3 minute video has been released. Different from the 1 minute video that already could be seen on social media, it’s the video that only could be seen at the live performance of 8th July.

    Also, on the official Twitter and Instagram, an offshot picture of Saito Asuka has been published. She is taking a bite out of an apple.

    I see Hori. I see zombies. I can't help but hope that she was able to get the Nogizaka Action Club involved. If she doesn't get to do a spinning kick or a forward roll to punch, she was wasted in this.

    I think they're gonna tie this one into the last single of the year similar to ItsuDeki = Asahinagu from last year. Maybe a Asuka x Hori double center?

    Found someting interesting. On one of old movie in the 3 minutes teaser, there is this picture. The title of Teito University research(?)
    Screenshot_2018-08-11-03-35-12-1.png
    Cmiiw, the big text, "残美信仰" means ancient religion/faith. The funny thing here is you read this text as "Zanbi Shinkou".
    残美 = Zanbi = remnant
    信仰 = shinkou = faith/belief/religion
    Maybe, this is just coincidence. But, the title for this project is the same with the first word of that research title. So, Zanbi, the title of this project, can be translated into The Remnant. Maybe, the zombie that's attacking the girls or virus that turn people into zombie is the remnant of the ancient believe ritual, as shown on the trailer, that was sealed, and AshuMio accidentally remove the seal. In the first teaser, there is scene when AshuMio in the underground or boiler room, and there is seal in that room, right? :) I think this project is gonna be fun! :1st:

    @MasToppu Well spotted! I do think it's deliberate, as the Japanese like their word play.

    New trailer!

    The first part of the project is going to be a theater stage play.
    There is a new website for this: http://zambi-stage.com/

    Although it doesn't contain much information yet, the stage play will be held from 15th to 25th November in Tokyo Dome City Hall.

    I think so, judging by the footage in the trailer, but I think that will be announced at a later time. I hope it's going to be a drama series, but it'll probably be a movie since the story is short enough to be told in a theater performance.

    I haven't seen Keya members in the teasers yet, so I don't think they will be in the drama. But why would it be bad if it were otherwise?

    I'm fine with 46 collab. But gotta admit that I'm quite disapointed too. Bcs it was promoted as Nogi project.

    Based on the trailer the movie is Nogi only and the Keya members only appear in the stageplay.

    Interesting rosters.
    Now I am wondering how they assign roles in this stage play. Will the same role be given to their group counterpart in other team? (e.g. Yodachan and Kubochan play the same character, because it's a role for Nogizaka), or will the role be cast to members who can fit it regardless of their group? (e.g. Mizuki plays character A for team Red, and A is played by Akanen in team Blue)

    Personally I want the second option.
