Did they bite people though? I thought they pulled her off before she could.
it looks like all of them just went rampage on the attendees, i don't think they turn into zombies through biting

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

How much you wanna bet he killed all of them in the beginning. But why? How can someone so young die naturally for this madman to conveniently make into cute young girls.

Pretty much called it when the policeman started to freak out. Interesting first episode. Not sure where this is going so I'll keep watching for now.

Holy shit what a gem! LOL I EXPECTED NONE OF THAT everything Minamoto says is so adorable.

I really hope they keep the comedy aspect as the main part of this show as well and now that almost everyone is awake I hope there isn't too much character drama with them trying to figure out how to live their zombie lives.

WAAAAGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!! That intro with her getting hit by a car then right into the music was the most metal thing I've seen in a long time lol.

Wow... that was seriously unexpected.. Hahahahaha!! Its sooo bad that its good. I thought the main lead sounded like Hanazawa Kana.

I think this is my 'just watch and enjoy, don't think or your head will hurt' anime series of the season.

Loved the ending song.

Are you trying to find meaning to a series that deals with absurd comedy and that uses just what you complain most to put together a parody of situations and even make fun of them?

You are the ones who try to analyze coherently a children's program like Peppa pig?

For my part, delighted in the way they promoted the series, with little information, even using a name that gave to think of one of the many series of zombies that exist. A surprise and I'll see her, the voice work seems like a masterpiece, Mappa is encouraging in an excellent way and this kind of absurd humor I love.


You know an anime that opens with the main character getting hit by a car cannot be compared to something like peppa pig, because it is not the same age group.
I am not even analyzing anything this was just straight from the top of my head. Again, normally i dont even post, that was my very first post. Its fine if you like it, maybe i just didnt get it. I am all for absurd humour, but there is a fine line between absurdity and stupidity and for me this anime clearly stepped into the stupid area.

Aspiring idol running outside transition to Truck-kun roadkilling her ass!

The hell was that intro sequence? She was falling....FOR 60 SECONDS!

CGI rain is CGI...but did you see that river? It's a fricking Typhoon out there!

10 years? What the hell happened in here?

AIDORU!!!

Saga Prefecture is all the way down in Kyushu?

Lol, all these zombies have been feeding on too much dank weed.

AHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! "How did I become a zombie?" "Haven't you ever seen a zombie movie?" "I have." "Well there you go." AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Tatsumi is kickass!

So idols are becoming irrelevant, and Tatsumi is going to capitalize on that...

YAMADA TAE!

"WHO SAYS A LEGEND HAS TO BE ABOUT ANYTHING?" I'M DEAD!!!!!!

So he puts makeup on the zombies to disguise them? That's some damn good makeup...

ZOMBIE IDOLS WALKING ON THE STAGE IN RANDOM DIRECTIONS!!!

BROKEN NECK HEADBANGING! SHAFT HAS NOTHING ON THIS!!!!

ZOMBIE GIRLS! DEATH METAL IDOLS! HIP HOP NEXT EPISODE! TATSUMI! BRING ON THE CRAZY BULLSHIT!!! LET THIS BE THE NEXT DETROIT METAL CITY!!!!

Babymetal who?

That intro segue into metal opening got a good chuckle out of me. It's definitely something weird and interesting, but not really up my alley.
Worth my time for the intro alone though.

Okay......



Jokes aside, that was a... strong(?) first episode I guess... I choked my cola at that runover scene. Came for a zombie anime like HOTD and this is what I got. Not that I'm complaining. As long as they keep this same level of comedy, I won't drop this show.

So this is what Okabe found after Steins Gate world line huh? lol

Huh. I don't know what I expected, but like...that was actually kinda good. I liked the comedy bits. Not sure where the actual "horror" is, unless it's like "eat the audience afterwards" each episode.

This is pure garbage. Probably worst anime in this season so far, can't believe it is rated above 5


Action, Horror, Supernatural ?! MAL need to change the genre to comedy only (and it is bad comedy)

But I don't understand why they still have hairs... Yeah I'm annoying, but come one it's too convenient!
Just give them some wigs with the makeup! you cheaters!

Went into this without reading much of a synopsis or watching the trailer. Was expecting something in the same variety as Gakkougurashi. This is obviously not that nor is it my taste. Oh well! Won’t be continuing.

Well thanks for using your own words to explain something, that's lame
But yeah I remember the "hairs are dead cells" or something like that. Doesn't change my mind though. Too long, too clean, too beautiful, too colored.
Hair dye and hair care wouldn't last ten years

That was a beautiful bait-and-switch. From zombies to idols to metalheads xD The whole premise of this show seems dumb and absurd as hell and that's why I love it! 10/10 would zombie-headbang again, it's bloody (and) hilarious!

Is this.. a parody of idol shows? lmaoo that is the last thing i would have ever expected from this. It doesn't even have a comedy tag but there is no way this wasn't a parody.

This was unexpected to say the least. I mean I dead expected something like Mirai Nikki but cuter or madoka magica with an idols touch but oh boy was I wrong.
I really like the generic beginning with a twist, really nice touch in my opinion.
The guy is a bit too annoying but I guess I'll either gonna get used to it like Bakugos' screaming in season one or they will make him less hyperactive also like Bakugo in season three

I definitely went into this with the wrong expectations. A serious zombie story this is not. There were some funny lines, but i'm not that into it. Another one on the drop pile for this season.

I loved the way they turned her death/zombification into the OP. That was pretty artistic, and probably should win some kind of straightjacket award.

Pretty entertaining start. I wonder how they'd go about it in the succeeding episodes if they'll actually delve into the the characters or keep on the mindless fun.

As soon as the bus hit, this had my attention. Trash-tier zombies and perverted “coats are capes” man later, squid tentacles being shoved in their mouths to stop zombies biting and head snapping rather than banging... this has potential to be the top tier trainwreck Im looking for
