Well she is the brains of the group technically so they would need her to justify what is going on and what is possibly going to happen. Either from that I do hope she does get some development and the fact she is insecure is what I need to know also.

I mulled over what you've said and, being a male myself, you're absolutely right, especially on the characterization of Saeko. She is essentially the perfect woman for any boy's fantasy - the impossibly ideal woman that all men want - and at such a young age too (she's not even 18 yet). By all accounts, she should have taken command of the group - she's the single strongest member as well as having a good mental capacity. So why does she begin to defer to Komuro when she's only known him for a day, despite being an obviously better choice? And no, I don't believe in the 'she senses Komuro's true potential' or any rubbish like that either.

It's amusing to see how it takes some sort of cataclysm or some sort of disaster to bring out the true nature of people - whether they be saints or sinners. It's okay to be one or the other when the rules of 'being normal' don't apply, but in everyday society, you're expected to 'be like the person next to you so you don't stand out'. Oh sure, creativity is fostered and encouraged but rarely is it actually applied. We are groomed from the time we enter school to grow up so that we can replace the retiring smuck that has 'outlived' their 'usefullness' or has had 'enough' and wants to quit the rat race. So when there's the lack of a 'stable society', people find that they are woefully under-prepared to fend for themselves - which is what's happening in H.O.T.D.

In a way, it would have been much more practical for speculations etc, if the backstory and the context were more fleshed out than plain presentation of "no so innocent" assets.
Thus far, you can even speculate any kind of origin for the disease, to the point it doesn't even matter in the end.
Then a speculation thread then.

The origin is pretty much hinted in the anime saying about the virus that the US and Japanese gov are hidding which caused the outbreak. Pretty much takes out the supernatural plot here as I said before. The only thing we can speculate is which gov had this leak that caused this world wide spread.

I agree though here since IAM BIAS when it comes to Hirano. He may not be a fighter, but he's the best with guns in the group. Developments from the get go makes you go whoa this guy is awesome doing this and having more great facial expressions. If Takashi wants to setup he needs to become more than the guy that the girls go for, emo gone manly overnight and keeps his pants on so HOTD won't turn H. lol He needs more development than the generic male lead, one or 2 moment isn't enough, one reason why I still can't compare him to Hirano. Hirano's only weakness for now is the allure of the girls and not being able to fight, but using tools, protecting the girls when getting out of the bus, best background development where almost every episode he talks about his past, has the best lines in the anime as seen all through out the anime series so far.

As for Saeko and Rei, I think these 2 need to have duel, not on the boob side, but on the martial arts side. Though I think Saeko isn't in the influence of alcohol when she did that naked apron. O_O

Not really she drilled the head of a zombie in ep.2 Got shocked and probably won't pick up a weapon just yet. She's the brains and the strategist. She's also my fav girl here next is sensei.

Thank god for that, zombie apocalypse hurry up and happen, I want to be the protagonist in my own real life video game

Truth be told I would've left that little girl, mostly because
a) Little girls scream a lot b) Can't carry a heavy load and can't handle a gun properly c) Doesn't have the necessary strength or height to kill zombies d) Would just be another mouth to feed and more of a liability than an asset

Sure I would've felt sorry for her and wanted to be the hero, but in a zombie apocalypse I wouldn't have time for heroic antics unless the person was useful and or hawt

Liked the episode though, find it funny that no one noticed Takashi smells of piss.

Fanservice and action was just

Hirano continues the pwnage, this guy just cannot be stopped. Saeko is the perfect woman, she reminds me of Chizuru from Seitokai no Ichizon and Shizuka-sensei is well, is she just retarded, I wouldn't trust someone who doesn't even notice her clothes are off to be our medic.

I'm starting to fall in love with that shotgun Hirano had when he blew away so many zombies due to the wide-spread.

Well....I think this actually opens another line of debate. Rei and Takashi brings the drama to the show...but Saeko and Hirano brings the GAR/Ownage/Win to the series!!!

Grrr 45 minutes until I can watch the episode!!!

To be able to pull a stunt like it did in the episode, that thing is now classified by me as a "Demon to Zombies"

I'm surprised you could tell what shotgun that was, most pump shotguns look the same to me but then again I don't know too much about guns.

I believe they said what type of shotgun it was in Episode 6.. Well they did say it was a Riot-Shotgun.. Or maybe Hirano said the exact type.. I just saw "Riot-Shotgun"

Don't worry. The author has at least thought this far, but we'd have to get the anime to move along. Until then, keep watching and enjoy the fanservice.

As for Takashi, I think it can easily be inferred as to why he's the de facto leader of the group. Hirano knows how to handle firearms, whereas Saeko and Rei are both trained with a melee weapon. Shizuka and Saya are good sources of knowledge useful in their situation. What does Takashi have? In a word: nothing. But as a leader? Everything.

Being a leader doesn't necessarily mean that he or she has to be better at everything than anyone. Despite whatever flaws exist, he or she simply must be the most suitable for that role.

Takashi doesn't need to have some sort of hidden potential in order to be regarded as the leader. He just has to be dependable, with a good head on his shoulders—someone that others can look up to and trust. Someone who can make those decisions for everybody, and lead.

I don't think Takashi has always been this kind of person. Come to think of it, Hisashi seems to have more charisma than him, but such dire times can indeed bring out the best (and worst) out of others.
