This.

Anyways, although I'm not a fapping perv who watches the anime mainly for the fanservice, both boobies and blood-wise, I find the fog annoying. It's just agrivating :C
I actually thought most of the fanservice in this episode was overall stupid, and sometimes laughable. The shockwave boobs were downright stupid in my book. I let the bullet between Saeko's legs go, but between the boobs? Naw. Oh well, I'm going to keep watching anyways.

I guess they decided to jam pack the rest of the series with fanservice instead of doing milder fanservice, like random pantie shots :U

Urgh, this show is just too much. Will definitely drop it down to a 4/10 if it continues being this ridiculous.

Okay the matrix bullets was unrealistic and over the top along with the recoil during the sniper bewbs scene (since recoil on guns is capable of breakings bones) but the epilogue with Takagis mum was epic.

Also I assumed they couldn't escape through the temporary fence as the zombies would have got them/turned over the humvee, etc.

Plot appeared at end with Takagi's mum and the whole, where gonna find our parents which has been the general plot setting.

just re-watched this with mates and we've all agreed that HotD really does take fanservice to a whole new other level. It's like as if one of the girls smacking you in the face with their boobs and asking if you've had enough each episode to which we say 'Hell No Gimme More!' lol

Hmm I was quite enjoying this show but last few episodes have been pretty disappointing. Why were Takashi and Rei riding on top of the humvee? Not exactly a good idea. And they could have easily jumped that fence if they climbed out or up on top of the vehicle. They've done far more unrealistic leaps before (Saeko and Takashi did one to escape in this one aswell!)

There's not enough tension to make the action exciting imo. Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland were far better at being scary and funny cause the zombies in those were actually threatening :/ Half the time this shows trying to be realistic and then a minute later it changes it mind (the recoil of the guns.) I wish it would just make its mind up to be one or the other.

That bugged me as well for a good part of that episode. Riding inside would've made a lot more sense.

Finally got around, to hearing the full version OP, its awesome.

pretty good episode cant wait to see the next one. Sad theres only 12 eps but hopefully there will be a second series unless this wraps it up differently to the way the manga will eventually end.

It was obvious that they didn't cross the fence because Rei's back was injured when she was thrown from the Humvee. If you had read the manga, you would know this. As for why they were riding on top of the humvee; the area was clear as far as they could tell so it was probably just for enjoyment.

I liked how this episode deviated from the manga. All the previous episodes were practically dead on with the manga (including EXACT frames), but this time it was different and that really excites me because knowing what will happen beforehand is a little annoying.

Only 12 episodes? That breaks my heart.

unbelievable breast physics=LOL

i expected something similar to the manga, but it was different, but it was still an enjoyable episode.

and 12 episodes only? i guess that's reasonable since they need a couple of more chapters in the manga to make an arc in the anime to have a reasonable end.

Yeah.. I know its anime but that was over the top completely.. Rei would have been more jacked up than falling off the humvee fullspeed from someone firing a weapon in the prone position over top of her.. One she would have been burnt to hell.. Two.. a couple cracked ribs... and maybe more.. three.. how could you hit any target in the first place lol?! I saw that scene and I was like.. wtfever now we're getting stupid with the fanservice.

I like fan service.. dont get me wrong.. but I mean.. just dont get stupid with it so you can include it.. the saeko matrix upskirt was cool.. but then do it again with her boobs? I dont get the point. To me its like they are almost trying to hard to find creative ways to include fanservice. Just give me some pantsu shots.. some bra/clevage shots.. Im cool lol.. I dont need all the dumb stuff..especially when its way too far fetched.

I found this episode very sad actually. I mean look at Komuro. Yeah the slow motion boobies thing was funny. And yes Hirano was pretty funny in the beginning singing a parody song of row row row your boat with Alice :D

Matrix boobs was awesome, even though it was clearly over-exaggerated. The show could have done without it but meh, it's there now and it was still awesome even if it defies the laws of physics. Rei moaning when Takashi was shooting her gun was also great as well as Saeko drooling. Lots of shooting and action too. Me is happy right now :D

But man, rearranging the order of the chapters and an episode count of 12? There goes for following the manga correctly. Now I have no idea where they will end it. Seems like we're up for a filler ending, which may make people angry but I say to watch and wait what will happen before raging. Though the next episode is one of my favorite chapter. I'm happy that it will be animated but sad that this may not get to the mall arc. Still waiting for the
though ;)

I dont know if its the subbers.. or the actual scripts.. but Im seriously getting tired of all the misused firearms terms in this.. to the point that its actually starting to aggrivate me....(Ive watched both gg and tan and see this)

The main one is the abuse of the word "gun" .. its a freakin weapon.. anyone who's been in the service too Im sure knows how aggrivating this is.. and if you INSIST on calling it a "gun" at least call it by a bit more specific term (shotgun, rifle, etc etc)

Shotgun shells are just that.. shells.. they aren't bullets.. not even close... ammo would have worked too...

Whoa, cowboy. ....Doesn't the average person just call them guns? Therefore it's more realistic to leave it at that. Unless the character is military or a fanatic like Hirano....

Still, they could have paused before plowing through a seething mass of zombies to get everyone inside. Safety issues aside -- flying zombie guts -- not fun.

But.. Ill answer your question even from a "average person" point of view.. If Asobi can get firearm terminology correct.. Why cant Hotd?

Fanservice party once again, but a less interestingly directed and developped one this time.

Remember that firearms are banned in Japan and no one except the military (not even the Police !) has the right to own or use one. Regular Japanese people have no way to know the terminology actually...

AHAHAHAHA! I haven't laughed this hard in a while. That sniping scene was absolutely hilarious. I hope it wasn't trying to be serious because I don't know how anyone can hold a straight face while watching it. Apparently Saeko's boobs can achieve a velocity of around 1300 m/s.

The other thing that's laughable about the scene is the fact how that's the first time Takashi has used a shotgun, and yet he shot it in the direction of a friend. If it had been any other show without the mind numbingly ridiculous fanservice, she would've been dead from friendly fire.

....At this point I'm running on sheer morbid curiosity. From the pissing scene to the Saeko bullet thing, I'm amused by seeing just how low this can go.

People are exaggerating things, I don't think it has gone any lower than any other regular ecchi series. I think the main problem is it was not advertised (atleast at first) being an ecchi series.

Hm... I wasn't really that happy with this episode. Seemed like they wasted time with the really drawn-out fight. Woah, Takagi's mum? o.O Anywho, can't wait for the next episode.

Oh, and, REI IS FUCKING ANNOYING! >.<

...Was it really that hard to escape over the wire wall in the first place ?
Also, why get separated ? The group that saved them doesn't seem to have too much problems handling the zombies ...
I have to say , even if i hate fanservice this episode made me laugh quite a few times xD .

Okay then.... o__o

I'll have to agree with alwaysbored. They usually manage to pull off crazy stunts, but then they can't even escape that kinda situation. But you can't take things too seriously in the end anyways.

Can we just declare these guys super human now & stop pretending they're normal teenagers? I say they've been cyberized somehow and don't realize it yet. Dodging bullets with your titties is where I draw the line. I bet that little girl probably has psychic powers, too.

As for the fire suits, my guess is that those things are too thick for the zombies to bite through. At least easily.

I can't wait for Sunday's to come. First I get to watch the new HOTD episode, then I sit and read the message boards and laugh my ass off at how serious people take this.

This is an animated show about zombies and yet people are looking for realism?

Just sit back and enjoy the ride for what it is, an ecchi, fan service filled, horror cartoon with obscure references to classic horror/zombie pics.

So was that an incredibly barbed wire fence cause they just made it look very plain, but you know whatever I guess, who cares to notice those minor details when breast are swaying back and forth like leaves.

Still next episode will probably be my favorite since its just Saeko and him, all the other girls are just chest filler in between the scenes. Id like to assume she finally picks a real sword as well.

Now, it's been bothering me, why it seems so difficult to sort out the plot important parts of the show from those that are mealy meant to be enjoyable. As someone already mentioned they did not cross the fence because of Rei’s injury, which seemed quite obvious to me. Now they could probably TRY to move her through the holes with two people doing that, but that’s not a smart decision while being swarmed by zombies. There was no time and people to both carry her and defend the place - plus the boobs would probably make it hard to fit into the gaps in the fence ; )
Now the Matrix-like stuff, recoil reduction boobs, all that jumping and so on is not meant to have anything to do with realism – you might complain about it, but it’s just the way things are. Face it – the action is more intense and entertaining that way.
And speaking more about the episode – I was positively surprised by the amount of slower, more serious scenes, like the moment where Takashi and Rei almost felt like the city hadn’t changed at all, or when the situation looked really bad and I was almost certain that someone is not going to make it. While fast pace is a good thing for HotD it’s good to know they can and want to show a bit more serious side of the show from time to time, with no exaggerations – just plain old mood.
