The third episode of MAPPA, Avex Pictures, and Cygames' Zombie Land Saga anime revealed on Thursday that Kotono Mitsuishi is voicing Tae Yamada in the series. While the character has appeared in all three episodes thus far, she was credited with "????" in the first two.

The anime follows Sakura Minamoto, who dreams of being an idol, but is hit by a car and wakes up as a zombie. A man named Kōtarō Tatsumi appears and tells her he's recruiting her into an idol group made up of zombies, dead girls he has "recruited" from several eras of Japanese history.
