THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Best episode so far besides the first one.

The Dirt bike reunion scene was FANtastic.

Hirano pawning Shino-sensei was pure win!!
Dude is seriously freaky, he should've just merced him right there!
I think that will come back to haunt them later.

Sniper chick is the Nurses friend? Can I say HAWT!

So turning into major Harem, all the chicks falling for Komuro....even Marikawa-sensei!
Where was she holding him with her left hand? LOL

The "changing" speech by Komuro at the end was epic!

Needz MOAR Splatter!!

Urahara Out!!

Yeah they all are falling for Komuro... but Rei is JEALOUS!!! The look on her face was priceless. It also looks like its following the manga fairly well. Episode 6 next week. I just need to make sure I renew my Anime Network stuff. ;) --- Randy

Good luck to the frag thread counting the frags in this episode lol. Nothing better than a good old Zombie beatdown. Next week should be the introduction of a certain character, so I'm pretty happy right now. Weapons upgrade time! (this sounds too much like a video game lol).

We should all remember that Ga-rei Zero was the first to make motorcycle fighting awesome. Komuro definitely deserves the harem though; he's cool enough.

Marikawa is still my favorite female character with the stunt she pulled on the motorcycle, but Saeko came close with her being engrossed in Komuro.

@Hawthornekitty, it was actually Akira that made motorcycle fighting awesome first. I still think that teacher should have been voiced by Fukuyama Jun... On a related note, does anyone know when the OP CD comes out? D=

Was it me, or was this episode subbed awfully fast?

Anyway, great episode as always, even if it's moving at one chapter per episode or so, it's quite fast paced.

Great episode.
They finally left that mayor idiot of a teacher and his morons behind!!

And that was one hot sniper at the start.
Despite the zombie part this Anime seems realistic in the way the army and police forces are reacting, if a real powerful virus where to break out they would probably react in a similar way.
putting areas under quarantine, stopping people from leaving those areas with force if they have to and so on. (I'm talking about a serious virus like Ebola which wipes out entire villages in a mater of a few weeks, not something like the Mexican flu which only effected a relatively small part of the population.)

Also seems the sniper and the teacher know each other tho not confirmed yet.
Hirano is also a pretty reliable and awesome guy despite his looks, i think he is a worthy main for this show.

This is definitely my favourite anime of the season! That horrid Shido's excessive hand gestures kind of remind me of Lelouch's, however he lacks the charisma and intelligence of our beloved Lulu. Motorcycle fight scene was epic! Cannot wait for next weeks episode!

I dont remember that being in the manga but... I wished it did. Fuck yeah for originality! Also... Anyone noticed the "666" number on the sigh above the bus? Made me a lol a bit. Next episode should take the cake though... Fanservice, zombie kicking action, weapon upgrades, and lets not forget the introduction of my favorite character! <3

Sooo... I would have to say the fighting scene was a bit over the top (did senpai really need to fly in the air? Rei too? Pretty high at that.) it was a pretty good episode. I wonder if that is the last time we will see Shido sensei, i love otaku going bad ass there.

Have not read the manga but i am guessing the first scene was anime original. They just seem to be random background information about the world. Not bad though.

Yay no recap. And THANK GOD, hopefully it'll be a while before we see Shido again. And whomever said he should be voiced by Fukuyama Jun, interesting. I'd like to see that too, although I think the current seiyuu is doing alright.

Aha, the doctor was holding on to Komuro's groin at the end.

The reunion scene was excellent.

For some reason who ever translated the first version of this episode I found decided to cut out the intro, ending credits and the final scene. Had to look around for a full version where they first show up at the apartment.

Now onto another long week of waiting.

The nurse is very annoying.
Hirano improved, he showed some guts.
Everyone's seems to be falling about Komuro.
And when they fought the zombies, that scene was awesome.

Much better than the previous episode.

That was actually a nice episode. I love the part where they reunite. Glad they left that creepy sensei and the students. Next episode doesn't seem to have much fighting/zombies.

Episode was good, as usual. Can't wait for next week. Hope they don't censor it to much.

The ending theme reminded me of Inuyasha. I love how the artist changes the song's tone for each episode.

Honestly I have nothing to say that hasn't been said, this episode is by far the best episode yet. The preview made me rage really hard, makes the next week a lot longer of a wait.

By the way, has anyone noticed the Yon-sama at the beginning? I think the original author had some kind of grudge against the actor for some reason...

awesome ep. Rika is as hot as ever <3
fight scene at the end was great, although they overdid it with Saeko flying like that in the air.
And yeah, Hirano should've shot that bastard in the head =_=

Best episode ever.....period. Bless u Madhouse for making chapter/ep 5 more awesome than it already was.

Things worth mentioning:
- Water cannon.......
- Takashi's entrance during the bridge battle/ reunion scene
- The entire bridge battle + reunion part (especially the hug between Rei and the Nurse)
- Hirano with the gun during the bridge battle/ reunion scene
- Hirano shooting the Great Douche (Shidou)
- Takashi's commentry on how they've changed in a day along with the stills of the fight.
- The new ED. It was surprisingly cheerful compared to the previous 4....(1st one is still best right now)
- Shidou's new religion speech. (For some reason, i laughed my head off at the poses he made while saying that)

Overall score: 6/5 (+1 because i feel like it.)

Next up: The Bath scene, be prepared for censoring and nosebleed.

Comment at the scene be4 the ED: Takashi, u lucky......

Very good episode. It's now showing the state of the city and how the events lead to people changing...a lot. From people rampaging in the city to Shido creating his new cult. Lots of modifications too with this episode/chapter which is very welcome. Hirano is pure win in this episode, kudos to his VA. Lol at Marikawa-sensei and the position of her left hand when riding with Takashi xD.

Damn you preview, for giving me such a teasing view of the next episode. Can't wait for my favorite chapter. There's going to be lots of complaints next episode but I don't give a damn as long as I get to see my favorite part there. Though I'm now fearing the steam censors =_=
