Kore wa Zombie Desu ka ?!!

Zombie...

Zombie !!

How I came to this show?

It was thanks due to Divine's recommendation when I checked randomc.net Blog at the start of the past season, praising the first episode for its wacky silliness but palpable story.

Recently, I'm not been in tune to watch after seinen comedies, and Zombie was my first seinen comedy in months after B Gata H Kei ended.

Beneath the silly wackiness, locket-room sexual fantasies, and the Willy E. Coyote-like mishaps, there's a story both palpable and grounded by it's not-so clichéd and yet inconventional characters.

Overall, I liked the first arc (episode 1 to 6) over the second one (episodes 7 to the end). Kyouko firmly and steadily made her place amongst the most remarkable female villains in otaku anime culture.

Too bad that after the sixth episode she completely disappeared from the storyline.

Spoiler:


Every time that Ayumu's masou-shoujo full transformation sequence was depicted on-screen I lol hysterically while exclaiming nae, to which in otaku culture idiom is the diametrically opposite to moe.

Sweet surprises I got at the end, when Eu finally spoke her words for the first time ever in the show.

Congratulations for the people who did this anime adaptation, and seriously the ending to the very last episode reeks or gives illusion to scream for a second season.

Second anime finished for the past winter 2011 season.

Just marathon'd it over at CR...first winter series I finished (my gosh, I'm behind the times). It was...fun.

The show has a mix of highs and lows. It started out pretty strongly; it continued to be enjoyable for much of it, and I found it to be pretty funny overall; but I had many moments where the show's pacing just failed and/or the script felt like it was cutting out something important.

Random Impressions:
Spoiler for TL;DR:


A fun little series, so long as one doesn't have an overly high expectation. It's clearly a low-budget production though. Rarely has the animation been much more than serviceable and sometimes worse -- that last episode, argh, and the lame OP CGI. Music is so-so, though I dislike the overused battle theme, which works fine in a funny action scene but awkward in absolutely serious ones when the next scene is going to be a heartfelt farewell speech or something.

I'm curious, however, who is that girl at the very end? The one with ojou hair?

Just finished with this series and frankly that was just ridiculously crazy or crazy ridiculous but the ridiculous kind that you can fully enjoy like Sengoku Basara.

And I gotta admit I lost no love for this show more so I gain more for it.
The story was a tad half-baked but in the end I didn't care for any of it's faults or flaws cause I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The last ep was not what I was expected but i can't deny I loved it

One of the things I loved was Ayumu's "Onii-chan" fantasies, he's oddly desperate for attention in that regard but I can't blame him

To my surprise I find I got a MC thats constantly surrounded by beauties that I don't feel like punching for being such a idiot(in the annoying way)
But then I guess I'm envious of the fact he's surrounded by all the beauties I might just punch him out of spite

If I did have any niggle with this series it was there was not enough of Taeko-chan(the lovely pig-tailed lass), I took an instant liking to her when I first saw her and saddens me a little that we didn't get anywhere with her but what can you do.

All I can do now is hope we get a 2nd season cause damn this series deserves one!

And remember peeps, it's not staring it's "the tender, loving gaze of a man"

It just says that there will be an important announcement in June, linking the publisher's site as it's source.

Oh ho?

Looks like I found something from that link.

I wonder what this is apart from seeing the words "13th Episode"...

Well we knew it was getting a 13th episode a while ago back when it started airing at least. So the announcement has to be about something else.

I know about that 13th. I'm just wondering about the screenshots I'm seeing...

Besides, episode 13 is scheduled on June 3. If the announcement is due for June 10, which is a week later, there must be a reason behind it. Like: "now that it's all settled, we're going to tell you that..." ... fill the sentence as you wish

Here's also a cute bikini Yuu as a bonus:

Of course, I'd fill that blank with a "Season 2 Announcement" spam over and over but that'll earn me a lariat from you of course

Also, June 10? Lots of (maybe indefinite) free time for me then, it's either I get a job or end up back to the ways of a NEET

Second season is confirmed.
This is somewhat surprising to me, I'd say this is a combination of not terrible DVD/BD sales(think Vol.1 was around 4k), increased light novel sales, and it probably didn't hurt that the first season got licensed.
Well the 1st season was a decently entertaining show, so I'm looking forward to the second.

I knew this season would get a 2nd run. (Shame the mods didn't give this a subforum..................................)

If one finds episode 13 and leads us to where it is at, then we will give you a treat. But I'll defiantly have to find episode 13 before the second season is out, or it could be that it isn't subbed yet? Or that episode 13 is planning to release on June 10th?

Original site says it is released already. However, I was hoping that I might be able to watch it somewhere. (This series is licensed, therefore, there is to be no discussion concerning...)
