Just getting a screencap from this when I thought "Hang on. Did I really not spot that Shaun of the Dead reference before?"

White shirt, red tie, cricket bat. What else could it be?

On a sidenote, doesn't Ranko both look and behave exactly the same as the fabulous Wanko@StarDriver?

Generally, there are a lot of common technical elements between those shows, despite the totally different premise; do they share staff members?

Reminds me of Inu Neko Jump... And apparently they have the same author. So.

I mean, I'm all for graphic violence and all (the more the violent the scene the better IMO), but when the story is about romancing a girl with intestines dangling, it's a different story. I like my graphic violent depictions and I like my romance, but not together on the same person. Guro ain't for me, no siree.

Now I remember why I dropped the series in the first place, DESPITE Ranko being so frigging adoreable AND the author paired up childhood friends in his two major works. Such a shame, as his art style has improved leaps and bounds over the years. :shrug:


Interesting contrast though to KoreZom, as that one I can digest as Ayumu heals up his wounds. This one is a bit... errr..... different.

It won't be happening too often. If they go the same route the manga did for most of them, you'll find those kinds of scenes...oddly amusing, shall I say?

Don't know. As you might expect, both words are rarely (rather, never) used by otaku on the net, so don't have any data on it. I guess it would (though, if you want to follow lolicon, then zombie complex=zomcon?).
Though from looks, it seems the protagonist is generally considered to have necrophilia, probably because he seems pretty serious about loving a corpse, so it wouldn't matter. I guess if you like that idea, you can say he has that instead, but...

The pacing of the first episode was kind of weird. And it cut off at a really random spot, and left on a cliff-hanger that wasn't very fun..it just stopped mid-sentence instead of a proper cliff-hanger having you anticipation what's gonna happen next.

The main character's designis weird, why does his hair resemble catears. I know the story starts off with that dead cat...but the MC's hair is ugly.

I agree the pacing of the first episode was weird, but i was more distracted by Ranko's eyes. I felt like they were sucking me in. I liked the premise of the show, but i don't know how they will incorporate a necrophilia style romance.

My God, that ED... Easily my most favorite ending theme song of this season. I don't think anything can top how beautiful and haunting that chorus is. And yummy visuals on the OP (I'm not crazy about the song, but it's definitely not bad).

You could just check out the manga to find out
It's not that far ahead yet so it won't spoil much
Honestly so far, from what I seen anyway, the relationship isn't that weird. It's just like two living person..except one is dead But Rea is much more alive than your normal zombie.

After the end of the episode I don't know what's happening anymore. I just hope she didn't kill herself in order to satisfy the guy's dream.

Should that happen this show will become a candidate for an all time favourite of mine

Maybe eye color turns red with zombification.

Red eyes signal something is weird often.

I doubt it, but if she did off herself just because some random stranger said he likes zombies, then I'm thinking she was probably already too close to rage-quitting to be saved anyway.

Gah, Mero moeness (THAT expression) and Ranko awesomeness (THOSE melons) totally got me here, too bad there's no room for them, after going through the manga version it's 80% Rea's screentime... Guess I can't expect balance given the title. I did like the fact the MC wasn't blushing at every single occasion (cliché my bad), but it doesn't seem it's gonna be the case much longer...
