I think my theory is that the entire village was "dead" which there were subtle hints given (perfume, weird old guy). They made the girl the gravekeeper so another one wouldn't come and truly bury them

...maybe? I think?

I can't really see how anyone could see this as 'light and fluffy' , even if it's not going to be Texhnolyze dark. Still.. really interesting premise, I had no idea this show even existed but it seems like one of the most interesting ones in a while. Award winning novels, and 7 of them too, so lots of material.. This ones a keeper.

Chalk me up as also curious to see where the story will go. Was not expecting zombies... But I can feel the series as potential.

Hopefully the series will be a promising one!

I agree with that! In fact, that's probably what happened when god forsaken humanity 15 years back, and everyone became dead! It still doesn't explain how the little girl was born considering the dead shouldn't be able to procreate any longer. It has an intriguing premise that's for certain.

So... this is like FFX then? I mean, they have those pyreflies like FFX. Jokes aside, this seems somewhat interesting, will give it a few more episodes.

I was thinking zombiessssss at first, but it must be a terrible place to live in, regardless of what's going.

They said angels arbitrate the passage from purgatory to heaven. Angels are sometimes compared in holiness to children.

Take it what you will.

That late 90's, early 2k's anime vibe. This really hit those notes, and that's a good thing. Definitely on my must watch list.

Interesting! It certainly fits the real Grave Keeper who makes her appearance near the end from the way Gunslinger was describing the attributes of a Grave Keeper. Either way, I'm really looking forward to the 2nd episode.

From this anime, I'd conclude that Gravekeepers = SERIOUS BUSINESS.

And Ai is so cute!

Though neither of these claims can be considered cannon (in case of christianity generaly bible = cannon). Though that doesn't mean this show isn't based on these traditions around cannon.

You may also add that this anime is better than High School of the Dead!

The title alone interests me, and after watching it, it has become a series that I need to follow. I mean, who knows, this can be the closest we get to a Shin Sekai Yori of this season (both is set in post-apocalyptic world). Also, please no romance between Ai & Humpnie. I want them to be more like daughter and father .

So you're postulating that when God forsake the Earth (I really hate the English title, BTW) not only did people lose the ability to die, but that every living person effectively became undead at that moment? Interesting - I was thinking that everyone lived out their lives until whatever killed them killed them except it didn't.

For all we know gravekeepers are considered as forms of higher beings. For one our little heroine looks to be (was?) highly respected in her town before the eventual shoot-em-up.

Lmao, I didn't even think of that until now! No wonder the show gives me an RPG vibe.

I agree with your original line of thoughts. Ai is obviously alive and Silver wouldn't be capable of such precission if he weren't dead realy short time, not mentíon he has gravekeeper with him. So he is very likely also living living.
