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.

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

Everything that you've borrowed must be paid back properly; that includes human life. If you loaned your life to extend it, then you have to pay for it, no matter how long it takes. And that's what Zombie-Loan is about.

Story: (8/10)
Not a lot of people see it, but this anime has a thick plot and has a lot of substantial themes. It's really interesting. It tackles upon complex issues such as the value of human life, the nature of life and death, the circle of life and even the value of friendship. Those aside, the story development wasn't so bad either. It's downfall lies read more

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

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

Both are packed with: - shinigami and shinigami eyes - hot bishies - cool storyline 
reportRecommended by janelleski
Both involve protagonists that are undead and slay other undead in order to liberate themselves from their undeath.  
reportRecommended by wakka9ca
Both tell about the undeads... Vampires and Zombies.
The leading female characters somehow trapped between two male characters.  
reportRecommended by Titan-Kikumaru
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
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.

girl owes a debt towards someone and helps them hunt combined with horror and supernatural events.
