When you have a cliche for each viewer, what you end up with is a popular product. Not necessarily a good one, but a popular one. That's it, basically. KoreZom is usually a mockery of those very cliches that have such wide appeal.

It definitely isn't the service because what IS has in quantity KoreZom kills in quality, both mature and moe, the only real contender in the latter category being HanaKana's cute French reverse trap, whose novelty will definitely wear off soon (sadly).

To me, Zombie is like Seitokai no Ichizon, both are underrated animes, (and the gems compared to the rest of DEEN's coalmine. )
Both are very good anime.

The nuns on "Index" already pulled that stunt with puncturing their own eardrums to defeat a voice attack, but other than that it was a very solid episode... I'll say this much - Yuu looked a lot better in the Mahou Shoujo costume than Ayumu does.

That goes without saying no?


The outfit is the only thing preventing Ayumu from being classified as GAR. Dude's pretty badass when he wants to be and can fight like a monster, but yeesh.

The only bad thing about the episode 6 is....Kyoko got away after all the trouble Ayumu went through.

Because... The girls are cute in IS. That's pretty much it. You see, the sad thing is that a "good" or "interesting" anime doesn't necessarily become popular. An anime could be empty and just "Hey look, cute girls" or "Hey, fanservice" and be more popular...
As for this anime... To be honest, it is average at best. There are lots of average anime this season (Because, it is Winter, month-meaning and weather-meaning), and this doesn't stand out at all.

Just finished the latest episode. Definitely a lot better than the previous episodes although TBH I was a bit disappointed because Yuu lost. I mean... for all that talk how powerful she is(and she is) she still managed to lose like a scrub. <_<

I have imagine their PWS skills already.

IS is pretty terrible, the main character and most of the girls cept fang and charles are annoying and irritating. The plot is pretty horrible, not even sure there is one at this point. The only reason i watch is its a time filler on what is usually a boring day.

I find DC, zombie, and merry to be above the rest of the winter shows. Fractale is insteresting but its one of those shows i need to see the ending before i compare it to other shows.

Well if Haruna could ever recover her magic she can be a front line fighter. But certainly Eu is handy for defensive purposes. Her word magic is a bit too dangerous for team formations .

This show is great! I had totally written it off because of some lousy title, but I'm glad I started watching it anyway!

Quoted for truth, especially the part I put in bold.

Heh, Strike Witches got a better 'story' than IS. Honestly only in it for the girls, that's my mindset before it aired and it never changed unfortunately (absolutely no plot to brag about).

Back on topic, I wonder if Yuu can use offensive spells besides her words of doom?

One big problem is this
How many lives is a masuo shojo worth?
According to dai-sensei, if kyoko was destroyed then she would have to kill ayumu. Then who would she have to kill for the deaths for those caused by the serial murderer? Or is kyoko worth so much more than a puny normal human?
