I kept seeing alternate subtitles in my head when I watched this, like when Takashi was groping her boob it sounded more like "I'll accept your darkness... and your boob in my fist!". I didn't think they'd follow up bullet time breasts with something as absurd so soon lol. Still an enjoyable episode for what it is.

NURERU!

Crazy Saeko is best. I really hope she becomes more sadistic and bloodthirsty.

Lol at shippers jumping all over the temple scene. "Ohhh they totally had sex" "no way, they didn't kiss in the manga and there was no sex scene so it couldn't possibly be true!!" Honestly, at this point I couldn't care less who Komuro ends up with. Rei's a dumb bitch but if they end up together so be it.

Personally, I really don't think Komuro and Saeko had sex. I think they would have made it even more obvious and fanservicey if that was what happened. The scene with Saeko fixing her skirt was probably just meant to tease viewers. There was at least a tiny implication of it though. It's not unreasonable to make the assumption. And the anime is obviously going to deviate from the manga a bit. There's no point using what happened or didn't happen in the manga as evidence against (or for) them having sex imo.

And "take responsibility" is such a basic anime phrase right up there with "it can't be helped". I wouldn't read much into it.

Anyways, I'll continue to watch this for the lulz and crazy Saeko. The "I'm wet" moment made me laugh my ass off. It's hard to believe there are only three episodes left though. It feels like not much has really happened. I missed chubby otaku and pink haired bitch this episode. It was nice to not have to hear the nurse ladies voice though. Holy shit is she annoying. The lack of Rei was also pleasing.

Let me just say you guys are idiots for assuming that it was a kiss =/ their bodies just became really close to each other that was all that was shown, no kissing at all was shown. HotD rocks ^^, I hope he does fall for saeko but he totally burned her in the end without her knowing sadly =/

What else would they be doing? Checking each other's temperature via forehead?!

Anyway, if Komuro ends up with Saeko that would be awesome. But if he's just using her and ends up two timing with Rei I want his ass to go down School Days style. No one two times Saeko! *shakes fist*

He really had to say that last line, didn't he? What a dick =/
Saeko >>>> *


We all know he has a huge hard on for rei, but i agree that line really rubbed me the wrong way.


This could just be wishful thinking but perhaps Takashi was just telling himself that he did it "to survive" is because deep inside he's confused about who he truly loves more between Saeko and Rei. Takashi did ask Saeko about her love life out of nowhere, but technically speaking he is with Rei at the moment so maybe he was just telling himself those words to try to justify his inner guilt of cheating on Rei in this episode.

Besides, in a way Rei seems using Takashi in order for her survival too since she trusts him and likewise Takashi wants Saeko to live so he can survive and the main reason for that is because he knows that Saeko is one of the most dependable people among the group, which proves he trusts her.

So my point is maybe there is more to the meaning of that last line than we all think, hopefully the upcoming episodes will show more development between Takashi and Saeko



Thank you!! I am glad I am not the only person to think this. Cause I watched this b4 i went to work and its been bugging me the whole time. Having read the manga and watching the anime, Takashi wouldn't have said anything like this unless it meant something greater. Cause until he calmed her down, she was freaking out which wasn't like her. Hence she would have died then he would have shortly after.

my own boob started to hurt when i saw that lol; poor saeko :'(

i personally disliked this episode because
1. takashi screwed saeko
2.


takashi is a penis >:(

but this episode made me like saeko even more ;D

Well in the manga takashi didnt says that so, you can believe that he not a tard in the manga lol and that he does have some feeling for her. The anime is so different, the temple part is WAYYYY AFTER they arrived at Takagi's mansion lol.

So how bad it is to beat the crap out of deserving bastard just imagine all the defenseless girls he might have rape that was retribution. Of course when you that strong you do dream to fight strong opponent or just bash things up, does that mean you evil.

Well if Takashi thinks he can two timing Saeko or not being serious he's crazy because a woman like her would cut you down in a heart beat or so I hope. Lately I am getting really disappointed in anime.

Good episode. I don't like how it sounded when Takashi said on the ending that but oh well, maybe there's another positive meaning to it...(gosh, I am still softening Takashi's image. Is it obvious? wahh...^_^ )
Anyway, if it will Saeko and Takashi in the end, I vote for it than Takashi with the bitch Rei. Since this show is somewhat a harem, maybe the upcoming episode is on Takagi and Takashi, of which I hope to see how well they'll pair them up.

It wasn't direct sex... it was more Implied Sex... meaning it isn't visible.

Use your imagination beyond the kissing part and the morning when she adjusts her skirt.

I'm pretty sure they had sex. The zombies came in the morning because of Saeko's moaning all night while they were fucking, which is what I just said in an earlier post.

I have to say I'd be happy with a Saeko x Takashi pairing. I much prefer that than Rei x Takashi. I loved this episode, especially at the end when he was giving her his pervy pep talk.

Well that was... different? I was taken a bit off-guard by the seemingly official-izing of Takashi x Saeko, but his monologue at the end threw that into question. What I'm starting to think now is that Takashi actually just tells everyone what they want to hear in order to ensure their collective survival. Hopefully some of this will get resolved before the season's end.

Next ep. looks to be the classic "seemingly safe house" scenario.
Ha-cha!

Oh yeah baby, this is what I hoped for all along. Moderate ecchiness, separated from the action scenes and much, much Saeko! Way to go Takashi!

There is one sentence that bothers me though. When he said "I did this in order to survive." What does that mean? That he accepted her darkness in order to survive, or that he accepted simply everything the end brought in order to survive? It sounded like he only accepted her feelings out of convenience.

Random boob grab is random.

Liked the episode, until Saeko went emo and told her story about how she likes to beat up men with her sword. Or something?
And then she turns emo again and by someone randomly and painfully squeezing her boob, she's all like ''Thank you for randomly and painfully harrasing me, now I'm ready to pwn some moar zombies.''
Awful. Just... awful. The one who wrote this BS has to go to jail.
3/5
Would've been 5/5 if it wasn't for, well, Saeko.

Oh, and another thing. Throughout the WHOLE show, whenever Saeko was attacking zombies, she looked calm and cool. Even in the OP she's like that.
And now she's turned into some yangire all of a sudden, that enjoys slashing zombies?
Whatever man, I've stopped trying to understand this show.

It kinda reminded me of this article I had read on the "dark side" of Persona 3's social links (if you're not familiar, the game has this mechanic called social links where hanging out with certain people and getting them to like you strengthens your abilities). In the context of the game, your character is forging these meaningful friendships, but really, it's nothing more than the player's attempt at maximizing his or her own power levels.
Ha-cha!

wtf was with her yelling "im wet" after fighting them? she sure got wet a lot this ep. she's easily the best and hottest so more of Saeko the better, but him randomly groping her was pretty weird.

I still hate them mixing it around and doing anime original shit.

The manga looks much more innocent. Though the anime seemed to imply a lot. How they rearranged the scenes make it really weird.

I think one possible reason behind is was because of the animation director for episode 6 of Highschool of the Dead, Masayoshi Tanaka. Not only was this person the animation director of that episode, but he (I'm assuming the guy is a "he" anyway) was also the animation director of episode 25 of Toradora. And if you saw all of Toradora, you must've known about the "highlight" of that last episode. But I digress.

He's also the character designer for both Toradora and Highschool of the Dead. It's possible that depending on the animation director, key animator, or whichever other role someone does that involves animating certain episodes, they can add a unique, personal touch to the way a scene is done. Though I'm speaking in theory.


THat eXplaIns the kiss scene in tora dora....so out of place if you ask me.....but whatever the case,it didn't feel wrong but the fact that the manga didn't show a hint of romance or lust between them is what i find,well,"wrong".....

I DON'T THINK THERE WAS ANY SEX IN TORA DORA.....THAT WOULD BE,TRULY,WRONG!

Yet another installment of "WTF am i watching; Did they intend for me to laugh at this?" scene. I burst out laughing at that last moment. OF course, it wasn't funny but so ridiculous i couldn't help myself. Or does that qualify?

Saeko would be the best yandere ever.......Can never have enough Yandere.

Slow progress is slow...we found an ATV, we sleep, credits roll. Takashi is a douche for that shit he said at the end too >.> I swear every episode gets worse than the previous...+1 to the first 3 episodes being the only good ones.

For reals, they are obviously dumping money into this like crazy, couldn't they have at least made it decent. They should be using that money to stretch the episodes out a little more instead of coming up with a whole new universe of physics for breasts.

Saeko, as expected from her actions, has some darkness inside herself.
That's why she has this unbelievable strength, because she's enjoying it.

Anyway I don't care if they had sex, because I didn't saw it at the first place XD
