Do you know when you are going to die? Michiru Kita does, as she has the ability to see the ring of death around people's necks. The darker the ring, the closer to death someone is. She notices that two boys in her class, Chika Akatsuki and Shito Tachibana, have completely black rings. Seeking to warn them of their impending demise, she stumbles onto their secret: they are already dead, but they are kept alive due to a contract with Zombie-Loan. Of course, nothing comes without a price. The boys must hunt down and destroy zombies, seeking to use Michiru's "Shinigami Eyes" to help them in their endeavor.

I have noticed that I haven't written any reviews on bad anime lately so I'm definitely going to try.

Zombie Loan is quite a lame excuse for a zombie anime that contains more plot holes and inconsistencies than a George Romero movie (look him up)

Story (Poor)
The story is quite laughable in every sense of the word. It is a mix of fan service, action, and comedy. Of course there are ways to execute a combo like this well, but it doesn't pull it off at all. They do well to suck you into the show with the first few episodes, but further down the road, read more

I thought that i was going to give this a bad score because the first 2 episodes were boring and i didn't like the art style but i always finish what i start and i thought i was going to be tortured watching the other episodes, but the story hooks you in the next episodes and you kind of forget the art style.

At first it might seem boring because it felt like it was slow and Michiru was boring, to be honest, in all the episodes she is boring and useless and the art style didn't help, but you're hooked to the story because read more

Quite a unique storyline, much different than most out there. Although the story could have probably developed even more and a lot better if there were more than 11 episodes. That just cut the story too short, which was kinda disappointing.

Personally, I don't like this type of art style that was used in Z-Loan too much. Usually I'd prefer artwork more like that of Death Note. However, I think the art fit this particular series well, however it isn't the best art out there.

Usually I like loud songs and metal songs, but the opening song was just horrendous. I couldn't stand listening to it. The read more

Zombie-Loan was quite a fun anime even though it was too short for my liking. Eleven episodes is just too short for a series, considering most have at least 12 episodes.

It's an interesting story, very original if you ask me, and it has it's good and bad parts. It's somewhat predictable from time to time and there aren't many plot-twists that could surprise you. Plus, I really would have liked more action in it, sometimes it just takes too long for the fighting to start even though it would look like an action anime first. Aside from that, it was pretty good. The worst read more

Anime: Death Note
Both are packed with: - shinigami and shinigami eyes - hot bishies - cool storyline

Anime: Shikabane Hime: Aka
Both involve protagonists that are undead and slay other undead in order to liberate themselves from their undeath.  
reportRecommended by wakka9ca
Anime: Vampire Knight
Both tell about the undeads... Vampires and Zombies.
The leading female characters somehow trapped between two male characters.  
reportRecommended by Titan-Kikumaru
Anime: D.Gray-man
The most similar thing between these two are characters. If you like the relationship between the main trio in D.Gray-man, you'll love Shito and Chika. 
reportRecommended by Rimona
Anime: Sankarea
The main characters happen to form a relationship with someone who is a zombie. The goal is to eventually find a cure so that the "zombie" won't pass away.
