It's just another normal day at a maid café until one of the customers turn out to be a zombie! Disrupting business and infecting some of the maids, everything suddenly descends into chaos as people are attacked. As one of the more experienced maids comes to deal with the unruly customer and newly-made zombie maids, perhaps there's a bright side to this unbelievable turn of events after all?

From the director of Shitcom, comes another claymation masterpiece! This time the revolutionary and brilliant Mr. Takena Nagao brings us his take on Romero's Dead series. The ridiculous amount of blood and poor clay animation reminds me of Celebrity Deathmatch, which aired on MTV back in the 1990s. My fond nostalgia for that stupid show probably explains my softer criticism of this title vs. Shitcom.

One day inside a Tokyo maid cafe...ZOMBIES ATTACK! The maids then fight zombies in a 3 minute sketch comedy. There really isn't much to say here, although I enjoyed the clear homage to Day of the Dead with the infamous "Choke read more

Thanks to MAL I was able to discover this Youtube channel called Takena. Takena makes all these short claymation videos that are usually quite gory, including Maid of the Dead (don't watch it if you have a weak stomach)

This claymation short had some good animation and good looking blood/gore too. There's not much to say about it other then the story. A guy goes to a maid cafe, a maid gets bitten by a zombie, and it all goes downhill from there. Just watch it and you'll see what I mean.

In terms of pure aesthetic draw, every anime in my extensive viewing history pales in comparison to the animation of MAID OF THE DEAD. The characters are near indistinguishable from actual human beings, drawing the viewer into a story that highlights the multiplicity of the human psyche. The creator, Takane, uses flawless word choice to draw out the potential of every character, making each character stand out in their own unique way. Takane also uses countless symbols to communicate the themes that strongly emanate from this piece of animated perfection. The deep red of the ketchup matching with the blood of the customer creates a read more

This anime was hard for me to give a fair review for. I settled on 4. Note i am not a horror buff, i do have a weak stomach one could say but i would give it a higher ranking if it met my beliefs like a 8-10 if i was terrified the next day, for example.

Pros and cons

The reason why it was titled was answered... Better clay animation then i could ever do but let it be known i have never attempted clay animation.

-the titled ruin the small surprise.
- not much of an intro
- character development sub-par at best
-not the slightest bit happy with read more
