[DesuFag] Zombies are OP [Orange Farm Archive]

Are you Ready?  Start!

A surprise comedy this season, Kore wa Zombie Desu ka sure knows how to deliver laughs while not detracting from the general story direction of its source.  It also doesn’t need to use references to make you laugh, which seem to appear a lot in shows nowadays, (not that references are bad, I love Hayate no Gotoku and Lucky Star, and those were reference-tastic).  It’s just that here, a reference would feel out of place.

Astute Observation

Kore wa Zombie Desu ka centers around a boy who was murdered by a serial killer (I’m guessing this will be a future plot point), and was resurrected by a necromancer sometime before the present.  Our now Zombie MC goes along wiht his life as he used to, although he must avoid sunlight (his spot by the window is used to comedic effect).  He searches for his killer, and hangs out in the graveyard every night, where he meets a chainsaw-wielding mahou shoujo whose magic (I’m guessing) he steals.  Our MC is then put in a showdown with a Crayfish in his classroom, and he lays a beat down with his fists, and by becoming a mahou shonen (you read that correctly), a chainsaw to fuck up his attacker big time.

Oh god, what!?

I’m not sure how things will turn out, as there is at least one character we still need to meet, who is a Vampire Ninja (from the OP, she seems pretty badass), and partly because one episode does not an anime make.  We could have a harem, we might have a supernatural fighter, maybe both, maybe neither (I need something to fill the failure that was Rosario+Vampire anime, Fucking GONZO.  R+V manga is still high-tier, though).  I have not read the Light Novels, and there are three different manga adaptations of Zombie Desu Ka set in the same universe in publication at the same time (…Why?), so it’s difficult to know where to start, so I guess I’ll get started with the novels.  The series also does a good job of blending the elements of the story together.  A certain Dyson air filter was a nice touch…  I enjoy the comedic situations the Zombie MC gets put into, and the character interaction doesn’t appear to be forced.  But if you are looking for a light-hearted comedy, and don’t mind a little light gore, give Kore wa Zombie Desu ka a try.

    Was slightly underwhelmed. Don’t QUITE know why. All the elements are in place and I should be dying of laughter, but something was missing? Maybe with the addition of the vampire, the ensemble will get rolling. Silent Necromancer hasn’t convinced me she’s not just overblown furniture yet.

    Speaking of Furniture, how about that DYSON AIR FILTER

    But speaking of amusement, I’ll admit that I’m easy to please.
