Aikawa Ayumu was revived as a zombie by the cute necromancer Eucliwood Hellscythe. After the zany, madcap adventures in the first season of Is This a Zombie? ended, Ayumu thought his life might finally get back to normal, or as normal as it can be for a zombie. However, destiny has other plans for him. Some guys just can't catch a break.

Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead is very similar to the first season. What made first season very enjoyable to watch was how ridiculously funny/random the story itself is, and I'm glad that the second season brings more of the same. The major downside is that unlike the first season where characters are somewhat developed and there was at least a plot, there is almost none of those in the second season. The main cause was the pacing. The plot probably could have been finished within the second season, yet they chose to drag it out and leave it unfinished, which made a read more

We all have our share of light shows to take a break from the deeper recesses of the anime world. There are times when memorable characters, fountains of gore, bizarre interpretations, thought-provoking themes, and eyegasmic animation leave a certain impact that burn our watching mojos out. So when I was warned about a cancer-inducing show involving a crossdressing zombie by my friend, I just told myself, “Why the hell not?”

What I got was a hysterical regurgitation of cliches, genre executions, and typical anime scenarios seamlessly smashed into one show, with an amazing dub if I may add. I can guarantee ‘Is This a Zombie?’ read more

Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? Of the Dead!

The 2nd season of Kore wa Zombie Desu ka, starts off where they left off from the previous season. Introducing a new character, the mysterious pink, curly-haired Kris. And still following the misunderstood life of Aikawa Ayumu.

Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead, or Is this a Zombie? of the Dead, starts with no plot whatsoever. Rather it just does some character build up for each character. So the supporting cast from last season, are now sharing the spotlight with the main crew. In just ten episodes, Studio Deen fails to deliver a "full season," so read more

"Till death do us apart"

Oh really? There are a lot of series these days about zombies, the walking dead, and ghosts. Just looking at this Spring Season, we have Sankarea and Dusk Maiden of Amnesia. Then, there's Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead. Death certainly doesn't do them apart. In fact, those characters are among the world of the living and they breath the same air we do.

Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead also known as "Is This a Zombie? Of the Dead" is the sequel of the original series adapted from the manga. For those who have watched season 1, read more

Ecchi, magic, comedy, harem, and comedy exist in both of these series. And of course being a harem, both of these series has one of those lucky guys who just seems to get the attention of almost all the ladies.  
Both have a inhuman as the main protagonist.
and both tells about the daily lives of the main protagonist,despite of them being inhuman 
Both are comedies, with good fight scenes, with a story that at first seems to be serious, but it changes its course towards something comical and very entertaining. (Harem, Ecchi) 
Both anime have a leading male character who has a female character always by their side to revive them. There are also lots of funny scenes in both anime.  
Both involve main characters who are unable to die, but often randomly get maimed to the point where they would die, for no other reason than random comedy. Angel Beats!is a little more story and a little less humor (not by much) than Kore wa Zombie though. Both of the aforementioned main characters are also 'brought back to life' in a sense as well, with some sort of back story as to how they died. 
A lot of the fanservice takes place in the main character's overactive imagination.
