First Impression – Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka

Ayumu is delusional.

I should apologize to walking corpses, whom I insulted in my last entry by associating with the main character of Dragon Crisis. Walking corpses, as seen in Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka, are awesome. We finally have a main character this season, Ayumu, who isn’t a complete wuss and doesn’t spend half the show whining. Even when he is turned into a zombie he just invites the necromancer who resurrected him to live in his house and begins to search for his murderer.  The two female characters are quite entertaining as well – Eu because of Ayumu’s delusions, and Haruna because, well, she is a magical girl with a chainsaw. All of the zombie jokes so far have been hilarious as well, although I could see how if they keep repeating them it might get old. The jokes in this show were great, coming fast and unpredictable. The transformation sequence at the end was especially great. Let’s hope that the creators can keep up this pace.

Chainsaws make everything better.

Based on the description, I was fully expecting this show to be a complete disaster. It goes to show that you can never really tell how something will turn out before watching it. This season I thought that this show and Onii-chan no Koto would be completely unwatchable, but it turns out they’ve been two of the best shows so far. Still, you can’t really judge by the first episode, comedies always seem to taper out by the end, where non-comedies build momentum towards the end. We still have the two noitanimA shows to look forward to, hopefully they won’t disappoint!

It's a trap! It's a trap! It's a trap!
