    General Fics 
Metal Head Conspiracy by buntcakemaster

  • Recommended by: Masterweaver
  • Status: In Progress
  • Synopsis: A collection of blog posts by the metal heads about Death Musume / Franchouchou. Watch as these two try to unravel the mystery behind this strange upstart idol group.
  • An in-universe series of blogs by the two metalheads who became Franchouchou's first fans, this fic explores how the general public reacts to their performances, and what crazy theories they'll come up with. It's an interesting outsider's viewpoint.

A Legendary Christmas by KB9VCN

  • Recommended by: Masterweaver
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Tae has wandered out of the mansion... on Christmas day. This, of course, leads to a series of misadventures.
  • Writing for a mindless zombie can be difficult, but this story pegs Tae with just the right amount of awareness and obliviousness, with a narration that seems comically level-headed for the nonsense going on. I had a variety of smiles all the way through—amused, heartwarming, and exasperated.

Franchouchou feat. by fyras14

  • Recommended by K 9 Thefirst 1
  • Status: In-Progress
  • Synopsis: The saga of the dead is just beginning...but when a secret is exposed, will Franchouchou still be standing by the end of it all?
  • The fic is a very, very, slow burn. But the lead-up manages to do its job, making the scene where Okoba, Reiko, Takeo, and Ai's mom finally make contact and confront the girls in Chapters 34 and 35 feel like a major pay-off.
  • Unfortunately I have to disagree with this recommendation. While the premise is great, it's not much of an exaggeration to say that there are grammar mistakes in virtually every sentence. Aside from that the writing style itself is very basic and not too good at conveying emotion.

    Shipping Fics 
Closet Case by RogueWaveSurfing

  • Recommended by: Masterweaver
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Junko likes Ai. And Ai likes Junko. However, both of them are too stubborn to give these feelings voice to one another. So, Saki decides to grease the wheels.
  • Pairing(s): Ai/Junko, mild Sakura/Saki
  • What happens when an idol from the seventies accidentally outs herself in front of a biker from the nineties? A poorly phrased internet search and a bundle of shenanigans. This fic examines how being a celebrity can put stress on one's potential relationships, while still providing both a warm ending and a bundle of laughs.

some girls don't need dreams by rankarana

  • Recommended by: Nottheunmaker
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Saki... might have some kind of addiction to playing chicken. First it was that freakin' cliff, and then it was that cliff again, and now? Now it's trying to touch Ai's muscles. (But first she and Sakura gotta figure out if, uh, Ai actually has muscles.)
  • Pairing(s): Saki/Ai
  • Saki was impressed by Ai's bow and arrow skills, and wants to know if she really has the upper body strength to use one or if it's just more zombie weirdness. And this fic is not afraid of the girls' zombieness or to explore the state of their zombie bodies. It's nothing extreme, just be forewarned. It's set between episodes nine and ten, and everyone is in character, though it all comes across from Saki's perspective.

It's SakurAi Fan-Fic SAGA! by UnderAPaleGreySky

  • Recommended by: Neoseraphim
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: (Author's summary—) Sakura wakes up one night to find Ai missing from the bedroom. After a short, memory-filled search for her errant friend, she finds Ai in a state of contemplation over the real-life story of a man who, too, suffered greatly to the whims of the uncaring storm. Sakura lends a supportive ear and the two share an involved conversation filled with allegory and metaphor that eventually leads to mutual confessions of love for one another. Lighthearted "shipping moments" and eventual, tastefully detailed NSFW situations fill the story as the two zombie girls delve into the world of romance together.
  • Pairing(s): Sakura/Ai
  • Set after the finale of Season 1, the level of attention to small details from the anime in this fic is pretty impressive. Those details as well as several parallels to the true story of the world record holder for times stricken by lightning are used to develop the romance plot surprisingly naturally. Yuri scenes are PG/PG-13 and receive a similar level of attention, making them easy to picture and quite satisfying.

    Crossover Fics 

Three Houses Saga by RenegadeBraveheart

  • Status: Ongoing
  • Crossover with: Fire Emblem: Three Houses
  • Synopsis: (Author's summary—) A weird and random crossover. When the members of Franchouchou, plus their zombie dog and manager, end up in Fódlan, they must attend the Officers Academy until they can find some way to get them home. Watch as Bernadetta tries to avoid being bitten by the Legendary Tae Yamada, Lily enjoys sweets with Lysithea, and Sylvain makes the wrong decision and flirts with Saga Jeune Ai Mizuno.
