Avex began streaming a preview for the first episode of the Wake Up, Girls! spin-off anime, Wake Up, Girl Zoo! on Friday.

In the episode, the zoo owner is worried that there is only one animal in her zoo. However, that one animal dies. The zoo keeper is forced to find new animals, and hires a group of female animals on the condition that the zoo feeds them three times a day. Although the zookeeper is proud of the group he has gotten together, the zoo owner says there needs to be a leader. The zookeeper finds a lion girl on the swings, and offers her a job as an animal. Offended, she eats him. However, her shark friend tells her that she can get fed and laze around if she joins the zoo.
