This.



Fucking awesome episode and 100% faithful adaptation of manga.

At first I was worried that they will take out the character interactions and social commentary from this, but I am happy that I was wrong.

5/5


This,alongside Shiki( if animators do not mess it up) will be the best shows of the season for me.

+1

Just expect some mindless fun from this title guys, don't expect anything more than that.

But... Lets just say I wasted alot of time just to see this... 6/10 where it stands...its just too cliched right now for me I mean its like Dawn of the Dead..COMPLETELY just with anime/a HS/fanservice.. hoping the other episodes can pull it for me where everyone else thinks it is..I think.. and I hope it does.. that I will like it alot more when the plot starts to get just a little bit more originality..

What exactly are you even expecting? This is a show about zombies. Of course it's going to be like every other zombie movie. It's not like they can pull out some huge miracle plot twist with only a bunch of high school students unless they dual wield unlimited ammo pistols and go L4D on some zombie ass.

And did anyone notice how the bgm resembled the 28 Days music? That is some awesome shit right there.


What exactly was I expecting.. Well honestly something that basically wasnt a carbon copy of the newest dawn of the dead movie (replace the HS with the mall and bam).. I mean... Come on.. even after watching it again.. after a good night's sleep.. its a horribly unoriginal plot.. I mean they could throw SOME new elements in there...

And I was expecting alot more than what I got for how Hyped it was. So I guess that was my expectancies. Dont get me wrong.. I love some good fanservice...and a little gore is good for everyone.. but I mean... for me.. that isnt whats gonna make this show.. I have to have more than that..

This was fucking awesome. The BGM when Takeshi killed Hisashi was brilliant, although I could have sworn that I've heard it in some zombie flick before.

Watching this also reminded me of that I haven't read the manga in ages.

I fucking loved this, was holding off to read the manage until after the anime (strange person I know) and glad I did. This executed the genre beautifully and I actually think was handled fantastically. A bit fast but not in an annoying way. This managed to bring a series of emotions to me in just the first episode alone, the acting is wonderful, the music fantastic, the animation top-notch, the characters likable and the action and horror themes strong.

5/5, definitely something I'm keeping my eyes on.

That's because it was the main theme of 28 Weeks Later, which is awesome since it fit awesomely with the scene. I've also heard word that they also got a song from the Resident Evil movies for an episode, is that bullshit or truth?

Better than I imagined. No, it exceeded my imaginations. Madhouse really doesn't know how to hold back. Lots of blood, action, boobs and panties. Art, BGM and voice acting are also top notch. Hope this continues throughout the series. Perfect adaptation, though I wonder about how the story will go, the manga is still ongoing. Let's just wait for the next episodes. For now, 5/5

What's with the credits at the end of the episode, though? Looks like ending credits of a movie -.-

In case anyone was wondering, during the scene in which Hisashi turns into one of "them", the song played is a remix of In A Heartbeat by John Murphy

I admit their a bit long but their to ward people off from the epilogue after the credits, or to give people time to ogle nudity shots in the credits or look at the missing posters.

Best anime episode I've seen in a while.
Starts with a 10/10 masterpiece.

I came a few times while watching this. It was that epic.

It isn't like Dawn of the Dead, because they don't stay in the school. By episode 3 they will be in the Orgy Bus (don't ask) and hitting the road.

They do eventually have a Mall arc though.

Almost the first thing I see is boobies shaking and pants, and a blushing girl. Apparently her name is Rei. Shitloads of blood and zombies all around. I think I see what this anime is about from the opening (skin, boobs and panties). It's almost as if the creators of this anime were afraid no one would be interested if there were no boobs.

I'm afraid I'm not the kind of person who'd be satisfied with just boobies and panties, which seem to be just to make up for a shit and cliché plot. Just like Ikkitousen...

The quality of animation makes up for it all a little though.

Guhh.. I'll just rate this at 4/10 for now and see if it gets any better.


Also, lol at CoalGuys' habit of forcing the word "fuck" at every place possible.

Well i liked it. The Gore... The Pantsu... xD perfect combo.
Anyway, i think the music was well fit. although they could have done a better job with the animation. The epilogue was pretty good. well for now il give it a 9/10, we shall see how other episodes turn out to be xD

Best friends do not exist.


Anyways, I can say that I really enjoyed the episode a lot.
This and Dawn of the Dead are really not that alike but you still have to admit that the first episode gave off a lot of Dawn of the Dead vibes, though.

And what can be exclaimed as original nowadays in our society? Zombie movies always have the same plot just slightly changed. I don't find the Anime/Manga bad because it's similar to your typical ones.

sigh... it is a shame that I have been trapped at work literally since this started airing... when I finally get out of work (by the gods I work brutal hours) than I will be watching this....

It is a shame that is seems they over-did fanservice. I mean, I figured there would be quite a bit because of how the manga was... but there was that small bit of hope that they wouldn't over do it... I just want a solid zombie apolcalypse anime, I don't need boobs to love this sorta stuff, just want tons of violence and general bad-ass zombie killin... >>

Do like dat OP.
As for the cast, as usual, seems great at first sight~
Going into detail, having people like Iwasawa/Maria/Kanbaru/Canaan/Celty/Tomokane/Cal/Mirepoch/Lag/Kotoha, Madarame/pantsu/Viral, Frau/Grimmjow/Gio/Archer/Greed/Reim/Friagne, Nia/Noir/Warin, Kana/Tsukiumi/Pheles/Yoko/Jessica/Alicia and Yui/Rikka/Rimi/Shiranui/Uchida/Eve/Kureha/Hamutz/Ami/Yachiyo is just great, and those are just the mains~ As for supporters, they've even got people like Light/Ling/Kida/Setsuna/Death the Kid/Cao Cao/Flynn/Kyrie, Azu-nyan/Nozomi/Ako, Sharnid/Germania/Kenji/Glen/Kittan/Stiyl and... Naruto lol xD. Oh darn, I lol'd.
Another good point, is that CoalGuys are subbing it~

Anyway, I guess I could do without the fanservice, but.. whatever I guess, it's not that bad every once in a while. (Well, then again.. It is.. Somewhat excessive.)
Hmm.. It's been, what, half a year or so since I was going to start on the manga xD... It seems I never did~ Oh well, time to do so~

Also, how come nurse is always the most big-breasted of them all? =3=
Sure, she handles health at the school, but.. Seriously? Isn't she just a tad too healthy herself? ^^;

Hmms, very chilling LOL.
I liked it.

It's a bit shallow, but I went into this knowing that, I've read a bit of the manga so I know what to expect.

It's horribly unoriginal, but hey, I'm only really watching this for gore, nothing more.
