NOT EVEN HAIR CAN STAND UP TO THIS SHOW
So you know how there’s this awesome train called Madoka leaving from the station right now? Well you see it’s also traveling on the awesome track right now. And right now on this awesome track, another train is traveling called Kore wa Zombie desu ka?
Yes that’s right people. The anime to rival Madoka and both Noitamina shows has started to air.
Will I be the only one aboard this train? By all indications of my comrades’ responses in our Winter Preview, the answer seems to be yes. A reminder:
ExecutiveOtaku: I still think the entire zombie genre is lame, whether it comes in High School of the Dead-style bullet-time boobs or moe mahou shoujo. Pass.
Hana: Doesn’t look like a bad show, but doesn’t look like my thing either. Enjoy it, Mysty!
Chronolynx: Nothing here for me. No thank you.
Mystlord: It’s sad that my comrades just don’t understand just how awesome pink chainsaws and zombies-that-aren’t-really-zombies are. Please guys. Get on board the awesome train. One of the script-writers did Amagami, some of Katanagatari, some of Kuragehime, some of Lucky Star, and ALL OF STITCH! What’s not to love???
Crusader: Mystlord seems eager to martyr himself…I say DO IT.
ghostlightning: What Chronolynx said.
I’m here to tell all of you to stop whatever you’re doing, and watch this show. This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for since the moment I found out about this anime. Get ready people.
So what’s this anime about? Some random kid who’s a zombie. Specifics don’t matter. Who gives a damn about how he actually became a zombie? I certainly don’t. In fact, all I did during the first part of the show was just watch the cats.
You’re a WHAT?
I’m about to become one too aren’t I?
WAIT I’m ALIVE!!!!
Oh wait what’s this?
Oh wait. Did I say above that I didn’t give a damn about how he became a zombie? I lied.
So you’re the necromancer? Yes I do care… I do care…
Erm! Ahem. I mean just ONE girl in the show won’t make me gi-
I’m intrigued… Go on……
Ok I do care~ Go ahead and kill me~
So you’re going to save me, then you become part of my harem right?
Wait what? MY HAREM NOOOOOOOOO!
Well it looks like I’m dead and you’re naked… How about you pass me my “lower half” *wink wink*
Unfortunately he gets no action… But he soon will… Oh he soon will…
In the best way possible~
BUT HE GETS RESCUED BY THE GIRL!
Wait a second…
This is fine too.
And that’s pretty much the first episode. Convinced? That’s what I thought. This show has EVERYTHING. Like literally. Panty shots, possible kuudere, definite tsundere, pink chainsaw, ahoge, transformation scene, BL implications, and the list goes on.
Will this show’s slapstick comedy last beyond a few episodes? You know what, it honestly doesn’t matter, because like every other fanboy, I’ll just tune everything bad about this series out and there’s nothing you can say to change my mind that this show is awesome. So you critics are SHUT DOWN already. So instead of using that time that you were going to use to write up that comment, how about you go watch the show? If you already have, watch it again. You have no excuses for missing out what is most likely the best show of the season.
