Do you know when you are going to die? Michiru Kita does, as she has the ability to see a "ring of death" on the necks of those around her—and the darker the ring, the closer one is to death.

One day, 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 are kept alive due to a contract with Zombie-Loan, a mysterious loan office. Of course, nothing comes without a price, as the boys must hunt down and kill zombies in order to pay off their debt. And once they learn about Michiru's "Shinigami Eyes," they drag her into their crazy world.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
The basics of the story were actually not to bad. Two boys who are bound to each other, a girl with some special powers who starts to help them. Nothing I wouldn't like there.
The story is short, but though I like short, this one was just too short. There is a big open ending, and when you are finished you have the feeling you still don't know anything.

The series are drawn pretty good. I thought the boys where a bit to skinny, but overall the drawings never annoyed me.

The opening and ending theme never appealed me, but I guess that especially the opening ...

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, ...
