AKB48 Members Form a Drama-Only Idol Unit for [Sailor Zombie]

As announced before, a new drama featuring AKB48 members called Sailor Zombie will start on April 18. Takahashi Juri, Owada Nana and Kawaei Rina will play the main roles in this drama. Now it was revealed that three additional AKB48 members join the cast and will also release a song for it.

Watanabe Mayu, Yokoyama Yui and Iwata Karen will appear in the drama as the idol unit 'Milk Planet', the favorite idol group of Owada Nana's role Inui Maiko. The new unit will also provide the theme song for the drama, called [Sailor Zombie] and of course written by Akimoto Yasushi. In the music video the three will also "transform" into zombies. Mayuyu commented on the new unit: 'Taking the drama as an opportunity it would be nice if we could perform as Milk Planet at AKB48 concerts and develop it further".

Sailor Zombi Information
Main Actors: Owada Nana, Takahashi Juri, Kawaei Rina
Channel: TV Tokyo, TV Osaka and others
Starting: April 18
Broadcasting time: Friday 24:52-25:23

Preview of the first episode:

As for now the unit exists only in the drama but I see a possibility that they will, like NO NAME did, also officially release a single and perform in the "real world". Which would be nice since it is an interesting member combination.
