Well, it's near summertime so I decided to write this review after watching the second OVA. Why? Because, the fun in the sun continues as Ayumu has fun with his harem of supernatural girls.
Is This Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead OVA will be a good starter for those who wants to continue watching the sequel series if you enjoyed the original season 1. I mean, this episode has all the fantasies guys can dream of:
- the cute delusions of Eu
- the cosplay of Haruna
- the seductive vampire mistress of Sera
The typical fun stuff you see.
Of course, fun does come at a price
if you watch Ayumu carefully watch throughout the series as he gets teared apart by the sun literally.
Then surprisingly, we see a more serious side to the OVA especially with our beloved necromancer. Behind those cute delusions we all adore lies a girl who seems to be want to be friends with others yet feels lonely. And of course, it's not easy being alone during the summer by yourself. Immortality is no excuse for being alone. She feels lonely and and our main character tries to be there for her.
From a fansub:
"People can't avoid misfortune. There are a lot of bad things in life. There might be times when you want to die. But birthdays are blessings, celebrating that we managed to live through the previous year."
Never feel lonely because someone out there, someone does care for you.
All in all, this short OVA is great for a laugh. It has a lot of fan-service so if you have a serious problem with that, then feel free to drop it. If not, then have some fun. After all, summer is all about fun in the sun. Even zombies needs it. show less
I enjoyed watching the series for Kore wa Zombie Desu ka, so why not watch the OVA?
In the end, I liked this OVA. It had its funny moments.
There are 3 parts in this episode and I enjoyed them all. There wasn't too much ecchi during the first two parts. However in the last part of this episode, it was filled with ecchi. Personally, I don't mind the ecchi.
The art for this anime was good, it was consistent.
The one thing that I found awkward was the voicing for Hellscythe. Overall, this episode was amusing.
After watching both the series and the OVA, I'm looking forward to
the second season.
What we have watched is more of a 3 part omake that also serves a teaser for the season 2. It is obvious that the OVA intents to tells us that some supporting characters from the 1st season will either be promoted into a main character or will have a more profound role in the up coming season and it looks like that one of them will have a much more smaller role, aside from that, there will be a new addional character in the anime. As for the original main characters, what can I say; they are still there, except somebody is developing
a crush on the muchacho (Ayumu) not only in his household but outside as well
As for the art, I give it a 5 since nothing has change with the way the characters were drawn, the sound is also a 5, since the opening and closing themes are still the same.
(So there is a little mess up on this OVA. There is only one episode so I will be reviewing that. Episode 0 will be in Is this a Zombie? Of the Dead OVA since I see that one being part of the second season.)
There is not really any reason why this OVA actually exists. In fact, I also don’t understand why the last episode of the first season actually exists as well but that’s in itself something I shouldn’t really talk about because of spoilers. This OVA is supposed to be based between the first and second season but they really don’t talk
about what happen in the first season, don’t hint to what’s going to happen in the second, and just seems to have its own little short story adventure.
When talking about the characters, their personalities really have not changed all that much. We still have the basic premise of the characters with the over active Haruna, the rather bland Ayumu, and the rather harsh tsundara Sera. We do end up getting a little bit of reasoning behind some things they do, like for example why Sera wants to cook, but it makes me wonder why they couldn’t of just put that into the main story line. It was actually a rather decent story that didn’t take up to much time, so why have it in an OVA where it really wouldn’t make much difference. This was something that would help define her character in the main series but they put it in with all the extra stuff.
We sadly get very little of Eucliwood, sort of pushing her to the side. I don’t know why they just through her to the side but they did. Instead, we seem to have some stories focus on the side characters that really had no real place in the main story. Characters like Taeko Hiramatsu. Don’t know her? Well she is the girl that seems to show up in the background and has twin-tails in her hair. Ya… I didn’t get who she was either till the strange short story talking about her. What does she have to do with the main story? Absolutely nothing, just a side character that likes Ayumu from a distance and never actually says she likes him.
I think the only character that they changed the personality out of the blue was one of Sera’s friends from her village. Saras(yes, I understand how close that name is to Sera’s but I did not make it) seemed to turn from rather cold and strict to a bit of a pervert when it comes to Ayumu’s ass. Just... right out of the blue, she seems to keep staring at it and says she can’t get enough of it.
Can I ask this though, was it really necessary to center in on all the perverted shots… including the ones on Ayumu’s ass? I know OVA’s are known for showing off a woman’s body and they are trying to do a parody off that showing the guy as much as the girls… but I mean really. I do like though that they do ask a burning question a lot of fan girls are probably asking. What is that you may ask? Why it seems to be what Ayumu’s preference is of course. Is it top or bottom?… ya… I didn’t really want to know that but that’s just what this OVA seems to want to show so I’m guessing the fans really wanted to know.
The artwork is just the same as season one, rather good looking for the most part although I kept feeling grossed out when they centered in on the crotch shots. Since it is an OVA, they went all out in showing what they could not show on TV without making it a hentai. I’m glad they stayed away from making it a hentai but it’s so close that I felt slightly violated. Again, I do feel I understand why they do some of the things they do, being a parody of all the other genres makes it easy for me to think that the OVA was being a parody of OVAs, but still.
The voice actors are really good as well, seeming to all of been from the first series. I like that they kept these voices since they both worked really nicely for the characters and the fact that changing them would have been probably changing the very idea of that character. Other then that, really nothing more to say on the matter. It’s good, not great, but it’s pretty good.
Overall, you can probably skip this OVA and not miss anything except the odd feeling of wanting to smash your head into a table. Ok, so it’s not all that bad, just the perverted jokes seem to be that bad. The rest just feels like a normal show that should have probably been put into the series.
