|Synopsis: An exorcist working in Hokkaido has a hard time dealing with the zombies plaguing the land, but things take a turn for the worse when she needs to try and deal with the revived Shinsengumi. She is forced to take help from the undead idol, Francesca, as well as her dog, Franken.|
The character Francesca was created as a moe mascot for the Hokkaido region, and has her own Twitter, Facebook and Google+ pages. So, like most mascot characters, she doesn’t exactly have what you can call established canon, which suggests to me that most of what we’ll see in this series was probably made up on the fly. Not really a problem in itself – the episodes aren’t full-length (10 – 15 minutes apiece), and it’s a comedy – and while the character designs have a bit of cuteness, the animation isn’t exactly first class, so there’s nothing that needs to be taken seriously here.
