Best of the new stuff that has come out so far. Killing your best friend to get his/your girl is a great starting point.

That would be the good part about this anime. It conveys lots of emotion in less than 30 minutes to unravel the psychological aspects of the human mind. Especially taking the audience into consideration, I think the producers of the anime really did a good job of bringing emotion and horror as their focal point within the anime.

Bro's always come before girls though, even if they turn into zombies.

Are you sure? I was always under the impression that Takashi asked Rei out after Rei's feelings for him faded, which was why she said that he didn't return the feelings she had. As far as I'm aware, they never dated.

There is no announced number yet, but I think it will be 1-cour, since I don't really seeing the anime holding up 2-cour. Also, a certain character that appears later in the manga isn't in the OP, so assuming she doesn't appear in the anime, then the anime won't get to her part... I think.

The manga... Well, not really any end in sight. Right now, it's just looping and going through the same type of development over and over again.

Like OceanBlue said, I'm under the impression that Takashi and Rei never dated, which is why I didn't understand the "Freaking girlfriend stealing bastard" description of Hisashi, because Takashi and Rei were never boyfriend-girlfriend before.

Eh...?
I thought it did about the same job like most B-Movie horror zombie films...

Goes back my ass! The scene you speak of is around ch1 page 11. She's not helping her, she's kicking her in the face! The only difference in the scene is that they were outside the school, not inside. But them being inside really makes much more sense IMO. And I think they are wearing different clothes.

The entire series is practically 100% conversion from manga to anime if I ever saw one. The deviation from manga is close to zero. The diviation I've noticed,
Spoiler:


Current score: 10/10
From the living, favorite character: Takagi

I was just going by what was said in this episode, that's all.

As far as I know, Rei and Takashi were never dating, but they did have feelings for each other. Takashi never made a move on her, and she started dating his friend, either because she got sick of waiting, or just wanted to make him jealous, though I really think she cared for Hisashi. I think he tried to confess to her after she started dating Hisashi, but then she rejected him because it was already too late.

This is an example of giving too little time. One second, they were BFF, the next second one was saying: "Let go of me!" No room there for her mind to actually change, therefore it seemed shallow and unreal. Give a couple of seconds and a changing expression on her face, and it could have worked. Or follow the manga.

This is how I interpreted it. At first they were childhood friends, then she started carrying a torch for him, but he never noticed or responded, so she drifted away to his best friend. Then he decided he liked her, but it was too late, her heart had already shifted.

Her sudden return to him (sort of) at the end, made some sense, but it never felt natural to me, perhaps because Inoue Marina didn't do the right things with her voice, or perhaps because the timing of the animation wasn't right. Not sure.

The facts of the episode -- sudden infiltration and conversion, killing your best friend to get his girl, the BFFs, smashing heads, etc. -- were all thrilling entertainment, however.

well, I believe Rei said something about breaking up in the anime, i read the first two chapter of the manga and i believe the anime is going in a different angle about the relationship, because takashi doesn't say anything about "hugging the girl i like for the first time" anywhere in the manga.

I don't see how it's obvious, i mean it's just your classic zombie film set-up with addition fanservice.

You never met people who lie to you?! OMG, you're unique!

There's no transition there, just you in denial of the truth behind the obvious lies.
Its often easier (or convenient) in society to just play the part that you are given.

A: Hi! the ship is sinking, are you my friend.
B: YES!! now fucking run and shud up!

I'm not really fond of whole zombie shows but decided to look through the first episode... well graphics and animation look great. The part where they were running through zombies looked like from some game...

Without real spoiling, I have question towards manga readers. What is the main idea behind series? Are they simply going to be stuck in school and fighting zombies or is there more to it?

Don't worry, there's more to it...

If you want to know more, just look up the manga.

Yeah, she even stayed back a year for him.

A bunch of high school kids trying to survive a zombie-infested world.

I have watched the first episode, and there is something bothering me.

Did someone recognise the 28 days later theme? (a bit remixed althought)
