I just realized how much fanservice they managed to pack into one ep. Madhouse is the bomb for making this awesome show.

No news on the airdate of the next ep yet :(

Lol, just realized the show was aired in the morning than at night XD

Drop some of the fanservice and I might be able to take this seriously.

BTW the subbed is crap that's from Crunchyroll

I thought it was pretty good. I didn't mind the fan service, but it bothered me how it never actually showed anyone bludgeoning a zombie skull. It just showed blood splatter or something. But regardless, I think it is entertaining, so I will definitely keep watching it.

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.

I am hoping that since they showed the episode it in the morning, they had to edit some things out. Sensei jumping and bashing head upon hitting ground. So maybe the re-broadcast will show the gore in all its glory.
Also, I want more Busujima Saeko senpai onegaishimasu.

Although the idea is not original (reminds me of RE), I loved it. I like the type of horror when the characters are in despair, like now the whole students in the school being zombies and chasing them.

I hope it continues the same well.

No, you're not the only one.

So far, HorribleSubs dropped. Commie dropped.

Let's see who else is picking this up. Maybe Eclipse? But they seem to be doing Amagami SS...

That...was awesome.

I was worried about how much fanservice it would have, but it wasn't that bad. As long as they're showing panties and stuff while the action is still moving, I'm ok. I hated how they went out of their way to show Rei's skirt when she fought the first zombie though...kinda took away from the action.

But aside form that, this will still most likely be my favorite summer show. Can't wait for the next episode

As many have said very high production values on this so far. And also gratuitous fan-service. Alot sure happened in this first episode, maybe too much though. Introducing the characters killing the main protagonist's best friend off and reconciling the relationship between Rei and Takashi within half an hour seems a little too much to take in. Seems good so far though.

Also the sakura trees with the road beneath stained with blood and bodies was WOW.

The downside may be the fanservice, which I'm usually very picky about, but I didn't even care by the time I got to the end of the episode... o___o Amazing.......

Just watched Commie's sub and it was synced just fine, maybe they updated the torrent? IDK.

Anyway that ep was some sick shit.

Just finished watching the first episode. Just fucking awesome, freaking awesome. Loved simply in every department. Plot, pacing, voice acting, characters, music, animation, art everything was simply top notch imo. Not saying that compositor remade my favorite soundtrack from Resident Evil movie which made episode even more awesome.

Fucking 5/5

Woah a lot of fanservice and they didn't censored lol.
That was awesome, a great start with zombies yahoo:D Rei is annoying as ever. Anyways poor guy, Takashi's best friend. At the end was cute, hugging when there's a lot of zombies at the rooftop :P

So.

Those of you complaining about the service.

Evisceration, cannibalism, and gratuitous violence is fine but bouncing tits and panty-clad ass is going too far?

No. Mixing a genuinely fine horror anime with cheap ecchi is just plain wrong. I mean, wtf? Ecchi should stay in its own category.

It adapted almost perfectly from the manga, actually I'd say it was better than the manga for this episode. tbh I thought it was going to be some PoS resident evil rip off in the anime, needless to say I was surprised. Can't wait for Saeko and more Saya!

It is all I hoped it would be ^^ 5/5

On another note, the song that started playing when Hisashi turned into a zombie reminded me a lot of the song from 28 days later >.>

As for episode:


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.

It was every bit as good as I expected it to be.

Although Rei was SO annoying... especially at the end, after the ending.
