I found this episode to be as weird as the last one (not in a good way). And I'd really like to think Yoruno-chan isn't as bad as he seems. Well actually he doesn't seem all that bad to me but oh well. I like him. Nice spaghetti btw.

Something didn't feel right to me about this episode. The whole atmosphere of the show seems wrong for some reason. I can't really explain it, but I didn't dislike this episode, but something wasn't right about it

It reminds me of Achakura and Kimidori...
Kimidori: That's it... I'm flying off!
Achakura: Where are you going?!!!!
*flashback*
Kimidori: Good bye.
Achakura: KIMIDORRRIIII!!!!!
*bomb explodes*
BOOOOMMMM!!!!

Ayumu: Good bye.
Haruna: AYUMUUUUU!!!!
Yuki: NOOOOOOOO!!!
Ayumu: And by the way, I'm a zom- *bomb explodes*
BOOM!
Yuu: *writes* These last lines about his line being interruped is pure fiction.

I concur: I personally find this episode quite weak despite we got more information regarding the king of the night.
Actually, I didn't feel any progression whatsoever, and the tension was incredibly lacking. Of course, the dinner at the end was meant to be "surreal" considering that the host of this, but the rest of the episode was incredibly dull, despite few good details such like Sera's stance.

For some reason, this episode reminds me how Angel Beats was quite awkward at comedy/serious plot transitions at times. Whereas Zombie was fine before, in the last episodes, we got a lot of things left to be desired in term of mood.
And I can't help but be frustrated by Yuu being dragged left and right without any proper "explanations" (I wish there was a dramatic narration or something, instead of having this kind of presentation). And this is rendered as a much bigger annoyance with little king being basically a very passive villain (aside of his "hostile" action early in this episode). It just doesn't contribute anything to the nearly inexistent tension.

Well that's one evil explosive to deal with. In a more serious situation would be something to watch everyone turn on the person who has the bomb on their heads and run for it . Poor Yuki having her fate decided by the wild guess of Haruna. I guess it's lucky that she only made the timer speed up and not outright explode.

Was a bit of a strange feeling episode. Tension didn't quite feel there. Still shows how tough it is to go up against the villain of the series. Those shadow abilities are hard to predict and defend against. Plus he's a zombie which makes taking him out insanely difficult to begin with. I'm starting to wonder if he sent Kyouko on her killing spree just so she would become so powerful that it'd be possible to kill him.

And of course some great scenes with Yuki being cute. Rough episode for Sera though.

This episode felt strangely off like the last episode. It wasn't really bad, but I didn't really enjoy it compared to the first eight episodes. Although the comedy bits were pretty good such as the time bomb, the drama bits weren't executed well imo.

I'm personally not that bothered by this mix of drama and surreal humor. The series has always been this way. The only difference is that the comedy/drama ratio has been reversed last episode. I do agree the final scene of episodes 10 and 11 were too melodramatic, though (with 11's being unintentionally (?) hilarious to boot). Episode 10 had other flaws as well, which I didn't find in this episode. Overall, I thought it was a huge improvement over the previous episode.

Great episode. Not the best, but still enjoyable. The bath water was so funny.

The final boss is pretty strong, but I guess Yuu is going to make him mortal again or something so he can die.

And Ayumu should have answered the question about being alive for a long time with something along the lines of it being fine if Yuu is there. Not to mention his harem... but Yuu is of course the important factor here.

Agreed. I think it's doing a good job. The drama isn't too off base and the scenes aren't too stretched out. We can pretty much gather why Yuu is not returning home but I suppose they have to iron everything out for her.

It's official: I love Yuki more than Haruna XD

I neither love nor hate episode 10. It feels a bit rushed and weird. I don't know...it just feels weird to me. I only like Yoruno' and Yuki's scene, others are a bit so-so. Ayumu jumping off to explode was a bit funny at first and then a bit melodramatic.

Personally, I would think it would have a larger emotional impact if they show Ayumu shedding one tear when they zoomed to his face as he grits his teeth (several seconds before bomb goes off)

What ditch SERA, the only mature character (concerning looks and behaviour)... nah! OK, behaviour-wise there is also Yoruno... or something-guy and Yuu, but the only adult here in both respects is Sera... damn you lolicons and kids go watch/read your shounen stuff

Don't get me wrong, Haruna, Tomonori, are cute and stuff, but they are also too damn childish

Sure, because calling someone a "piece of shit" over and over just to spite/annoy them is VERY mature and adult-like.

Her personality sucks, end of story. Tis' a shame really.

Agree thats only the looking while the personality isn't Haruna has the look of a child yet acts like one and there are other that pretends to be mature yet acts very childish despite the appareances.

IMO, Sera is far to be mature.

Hm, seems like you're on a crusade against kids, from the looks of your recent comments...

personally, Sera's too mature for my tastes... just like her boobs, too big for me.
not to mention, sometimes her so-called 'mature' behaviour feels strangely forced...
