Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? 05

This episode continued in the good trend they started in the last episode of more humor and less actual plot and fanservice. Well, there was a lot of fanservice, but it was more directed for humorous purposes (i.e., the opening scene, Haruna’s attempt at transformation). Surprisingly the plot isn’t as horrible as these things usually go though.

The show this reminds me of the post is Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaoh – it has the same random sense of humor. That show started out really strong but then got bogged down with a terrible semblance of a plot and increasing levels of GARness – especially that superhero guy. We can only hope that Kore wa Zombie Desu ka won’t take the same path and will continue not to take itself too seriously.

The comedy continues to be top-notch- Ayumu’s cuteness jokes, Haruna’s obliviousness and Sera’s (accurate) insults. They are using the same jokes over and over again, but it hasn’t gotten old quite yet. Ayumu’s choice of date spot was classic, and Sera’s stab through the middle of Ayumu’s chest sealed the icing on the cake.

It was pretty obvious that Kyoko would end up being a psycho, but still, I applaud all usage of insane girls. And the way they kept piling titles on her was pretty funny. She also knows Haruna except Haruna doesn’t know her (that phone conversation did have a purpose, but it was still way too long). I really hope this doesn’t follow one of those “let’s all get along plots!” and she joins Ayumu’s harem, but I have a sinking feeling that she will…
