THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The anime I am anticipating the most in the the real deal of love of a human and zombie. Where most animes fail this anime succeeds in that notion. Put it this way male MC does not like any girl other than one being a zombie. Never before I have seen something like that. Truly Chihiro is one guy I admire for his true guts in his love for zombies.

Rea is well done. No problem there and in fact I think she is more MOE than the manga.

What really made me happy of the OP is the following,

Hands down my favorite girl and sadly she never gets enough justice in the manga ever. Sad but she is made way more MOE than I though. A good job and best loli of this series.

Other than that my final advice for non manga readers, if you DROP this, you will make the biggest regret of your life in the new fad of “True Love for Zombies.” This series is the closest that is recent and has a Guy x Girl relationship that the girl is a zombie and the guy does not give a fuck of real girls. To him all are 3D pig disgusting except for Zombies. Kind of like attitude. I can assure you having read the manga far that it’s really pure love and the OP in the following,

clearly shows that. Remains to see of the setup in which it occurs. So far the end of the episode starts it out hot.

I hope people take my word for the romance because it’s the most intense I have seen that is exactly like love one would have for a girl.

That being said I am glad to far with my 2nd anime of this Thursday. Might edit later.

BTW Image Stitches are done in the spoiler
lots of Rea and Rinko.

This seems pretty cool so far, especially for a DEEN show.

I was not planning to watch this, but it was on TBS, which Acchi Kocchi was aired and I heard Kimura Ryohei's voice for the main character, so I tried ep.1. Wow, it shows how a girl becoming zombie with the main character's request as a remorse to his cat's death.

I watched it in KeyHole TV too, first episode consumed whole first chapter, maybe with this pace amount of fillers will be minimal :)

One of the few shows that I've read the manga beforehand so this will be an interesting to watch how closely the anime follows the manga. So far, chapter 1 was covered.

It was really nice episode. I didn't enjoy the opening, i doesn't suit to anime. Seiyuu work is done nicely. Uchida Maaya (Rea) lack of experience, but despite of this she done quite well. Graphic is really good, lots of details, let's say 8/10. Music presents similar level. I enjoyed the episode (especialy second part).

I liked the first episode, main protagonist is essentially awesome. Not the cliche perverted necrophiliac the synopsis made him out to be; more of the apathetically awesome guy.

Impressive episode, I like how the seriousness mixed with the light comedy and vice versa. Also, catchy OP song. I'll be watching this for sure this season now.

5/5 sup

I'm impressed! The first episode was a damn good interpretation of the beginning of the manga series. I liked the animation better than I expected, Chihiro's voice actor is very good, and they captured the ominous feeling of the serious parts quite well. And they even avoided making Wanko too irritating. LOL

Now the question will be - what can the animation team achieve in so few episodes, particularly when the manga is still on-going?

Such lovely female lead
But the scene reminds me of Shaft's works

For a SHAFT series, this one isn't completely killed off the bat!

uh... I have to say that Rea was as pretty as in the manga. but I see no Darin, my favorite heroine in this OP, why?

While it did have a few scenes that looked like Shaft camera angles, its actually DEEN.

Good episode,time for some zombies!!

Good adaptation from the manga,even that the beginning there were filler scene i think they wrap it pretty well and add something good to the anime.

The OP and ED are pretty good specially liked the OP and the animation on it is pretty nice.

Hope they keep Furuya personality intact i really like him in the manga even that i feel a little less of him animated maybe is the hour or just me....he can be the MC of the season without doubt.

Then watching Rea animated...GREAT!! I really love her she is extra cute and she will get even more cute as the episodes go!!

Well lets see how it goes from here hopefully they wont change many things and make episodes full of fillers.

1st episode approve!!


Also Jogorou....you make me laugh as always!!

I'm surprised DEEN can put up this quality of animation. But uhhh... yeah, Furuya is mentally insane. He wouldn't last one second in an actual zombiepocalypse.

Some very nice animation and visuals.

The only thing I don't really like is the MC's character design, but I guess that he might grow on me if done right.

Anyone catch all the horror references? Well here is my take on it:
  • IN the following spoiler
    the casing shows SAW, Chucky, Silence of the Lambs and Nightmare on Elm street. Well the claw

  • In the following spoiler
    the glass casing shows better of the Friday the 13th Jason mask.

  • Dusk of the Death reference in the spoiler
    this one is obviously clearly shown as a poster.

  • Reference in general to Spanish horror in the spoiler
    the horror movie has its title in Spanish.

  • Reference to the classical under the bed horror type in the spoiler
    down commonly as snatchers under the bed. A fear that is used on some kids even.
So I wonder if that is all of them or did I miss some? I am sure some in the case display I missed.

Not too sure what to think about this. The art seems a bit iffy at times (along with that funky OP) and nothing much seems to happen (besides introducing background I guess). Introducing zombie Sankarea at the end seemed like a bad move imo. It seemed sort of out of place. Still sort of nice to see the manga being animated though so I'll stick around and see if it gets better.

Haven't read the manga but she might not be a zombie at the end, just dying. The concoction he's working on to revive babu is going to be used on her which will turn her into a zombie.

I like the show so far, very interesting. Personally, Chihiro is an interesting character, he's not all "I'm a useless every other dude" type of guy, at least doesn't seem to be in the first episode. His character style is nice, the hair is supposed to make him look like a cat filling in some occult throwback maybe. Cat characters are usually chicks and a cat looking necrophiliac is just begging for some good jokes worked in.

Wow, the whole time I was watching this episode I kept thinking to myself, "this has to be a Silver Link/Oonuma Shin show," so imagine my surprise when it is from Studio DEEN of all people. Really enjoyed it, can't wait for more.

The whole episode looked incredibly SHAFT-esque with its unusual camera angles and body close-ups. Also, it looked surpisingly well produced for a DEEN series.

I heard the director Mamoru Hatakeyama is a pseudonym for Shinichi Omata who worked at SHAFT so that would explain the similarities.

Overall, the first episode still felt quite generic with the whining best male friend, the love triangle and the rich girl yearning for freedom but that's more due to the source material than anything.
While this is a pity we're still in for a lot of eyecandy at least.

totally great first episode - this could work out to be my favorite of the season (especially since all the other new show have been fairly average) - beautiful art, great characters, humor, and just the right amount of the grotesque - can't wait fer next week!
