Getting better.. but still sort of weak.. Takagi saved this ep.. (Thats my girl using the drill LOL) .. I hope.. that they add in news footage/radio/phone calls randomly.. to me it adds more of a sense of dispair.. I definitely think that was a big help for this episode too..

Guess the people who griped about fanservice wont really have much to gripe about this week..

(I did the same thing when Saya put on her glasses..as the big boy.. *drools*.. she may just save this series for me)

But yeah.. the Kendo club girl is pretty BA.. Rei still bores me.. The last fight scene with all the characters.. I didnt really care for.. it just seemed too.. I dont know.. like.. "fluid" ... I wonder if anyone can agree with me or put this into words better for me lol..

3/5

Am I the only one cracking up at how little violence is actually in this anime? I mean, they just show blood splatter, it's farking hilarious.

I think I'll keep watching to see just how laughably campy it is and how they try just so damn hard to make it look violent when it isn't at all.

Yeah, it's not really good because there isn't enough gore and violence. Haha... :\

I for one hope the series evolves beyond what it is now and doesn't get stuck on the same path.

Anyways, pretty killer episode. Can't wait for next weeks. As for all of you morons out there that complain about the ecchi, find something else to pick at. Your getting really boring.

Another tight episode.

I really like how they're making every episode like a little movie, they even got the rolling credits lol.

The "genius" is a little annoying but the megami-con is pretty funny.
Kind of ridiculous when he designed/built the "stock" for the nail gun, and they should've made the nail shots better, atleast made their heads pop.

The bushido chick is decent, and the hottie nurse is....hot, that's about it.

Let's see where it goes from here, were they implying that the government was already talking about exterminating the area?

A little early, but I guess it's better to take care of it before it spreads.

I'm predicting most of the peoples families, will be aced, if they even make it that far.

I was already contemplating an anime network membership before this started and this may have confirmed it for me.

Urahara Out!!

Ha, I really enjoyed this one - Hirano in particular. The way he shifts from in awe of Takagi to downright maniacal when he has a weapon on his hands is just hilarious.

If drilling a hole into someone's head is not violent enough for you, then I don't know what is.

Hmm, this is one of those anime that's better to be marathoned, instead of watching one episode a week. The crazy excitement I felt for "episode one" wasn't here this time; though it's still entertaining to watch.

You mean it's still censored? What more can they show? or in this case not show and another good episode. Seems like they changed the ending theme this time around. It might be one of those anime's that switch up ending tracks every episode.

The episode aired on ATX which is a satellite channel.

There would be no reason for them to air a censored version.

Didn't watch, is it confirmed that there will be no full HD broadcast? or need to wait for a few weeks? If no Full HD, then there may only be 1080i or 720P in BD

Here comes Shizuka sensei.... boing, boing, boing. I hope they keep doing the sound effects through out the series.
Also, it may just be the second episode, but hands down Saeko is the best. Lets just pray that the animators do not deviate too much from the manga in her character development.

All the actual head-stabs and etc are censored by shadows - like the scene where zombie got his head drilled. ll the wounds inflicted on the redshirts are censored too.

There are three levels of censorship in this show:
- DVD Version - where nothing is censored
- AT-X Version - where only most grotesque things are censored. (you are watching this)
- Common version - where pretty much A LOT is censored by shadows and etc.



ANd I am pretty sure that its significant - they changed the entire Rei's phonecall. My fears of anime-original ending are rising ._.

That's actually a zombie movie tradition in many ways, though I also hear the episodes are censored for television. BUT the off screen kills are a staple of early time in zombie movies.

They really had 'boing boing' sound effects with the nurse? Ay de mi.

Still really campy, but it's better than I thought it would be. I like that the pink-haired girl is trying to establish the science behind the zombie's mannerisms. "Oh, they must be blind, only reacting to sound. Baka baka, you really should--OH SHIT THE ZOMBIE'S ABOUT TO EAT ME I BETTER SHOVE THIS SAW INTO ITS FACE."

Yay.

Amazing animation again :D And Saeko is wiiiiiin~ I love her voice! Hmmm also less fanservice this episode...? Or less noticeable ones? o_o
I don't like Takagi and her geniusness that much >_> she should have done what otaku told her do instead of getting mad for on reason~ Nurse-san is.. bouncy///...ahaha xD The otaku made me laugh when he found out takagi wore glasses.. 'megane..?' (=///=) ... Saeko is definitely my fav character though~~ xD

More jiggly boobs and panties.

Another episode as bad as the first one.

The only character I've somewhat liked so far is that Takashi guy.

Remains a 4/10 in my list.

This isn't highschool of the dead..This is highschool of the UNDEAD..
Anyway, this ep was okay..Nothing really happened, apart from the killing..I hope it becomes more interesting, because just a bunch of teenagers running and smashing the heads of zombies can eventually become tiresome..
Other than that, did anyone notice the fact that previous week the show was rated 9.33 and today it is 8.39??Looks like 2nd episode was a dissapointment compared to the 1st..

First episode was better, indeed. But I still loved the second episode. Great series, I don't know why people think this is overrated. But it's kinda lame of you've rated this a 10 after 1 or 2 episodes.

Finally, i got to see Saeko in action :D
I lol @ how Hirano changed from Maniac to nice person in less than a minute. Also, "Glasses"

Damn...the ED changed.......The old one was better >_>
+ Rei is less of a annoyance in this EP

Overall Score: 5/5 (XD at the sound effects when the nurse moves)

It was rated 9.33 before the first episode had even aired due to some 3 people having rated it before that.

8.39 is the score after the 1st episode. We have yet to see what the score looks like after the 2nd episode.

U know, it would've been better if they kept the previous ending song IMO.
The current one doesn't seem very good.

Also, it seems that the title of each episode and manga chapter are the same...so the fourth title will probably be "Running in the Dead"

I hope they include the SoTD reference in the 3rd ep....

Ah Saeeeeekooooo! Looking mighty fine as always. You can already tell she has much more going for her if you notice all the smirks she got in this episode.

Overall good episode. Still going strong. I wish they could've shown more of the broadcast from the TV since it showed just how BIG this whole hell is.

I have to be honest, I probably would have shot Takagi if I was Hirano. He was shooting all the freaking zombies while she was doing nothing but calling him chubby.

He was blushing all around though. I think he's fallen for her
