Kore wa Zombie desu Ka? is still supposed to be airing ep. 10 on March 22 according to it's site.

According to IS's twitter post, they aired ep. 7 again this week instead.

could it be that the tv stations were hit by the earthquakes and collapsed?


Most had minor damage, some moderate, but no collapsing or severe damage.

So Dragon Crisis is getting back to back airings of Episode 10 & 11 the same day? I'm guessing that's one show that's already been completed. Since some shows are in limbo, due to the animation studios not having the power to complete the shows.

I know it cant be helped but i REALLY want freezing to finish up ><

Given the current situation in Japan it's understandable that some Anime are postponed and i find this no problem they will send them out eventually and we just have to wait a little longer.

There is one thing that bothers me tho.
Why are all the good Anime cancelled while the worst Anime in years (Rio-Rainbow gate) is being aired?

Hoppy would you be so kind to give that information in English?

The people who are complaining about delays simply disgust me. Thousands upon thousand of people just lost their homes, their workplaces, and even their family members to a catastrophe. All you're losing is a few 20~ minute animations, and you dare to complain about it?


I'm more disgusted by people who pretend how they suffer and feel sorry for people in Japan. I hate when people preach about "hungry kids in Africa" but do nothing or sand 5$ to gain that "Oh, how noble and compassionate i am" moodlet.

It's Like I'm disgusted by people who can't kill fish for Christmas but have no problem eating it after it's cooked.

Unfortunately world is cruel and people die. I'm sad that catastrophe happened but i won't delude myself that i feel their pain. And I still want to watch same good anime witch can of beer after work. If i watch comedy i will still laugh, world didn't change.

Well, I understand that anime and other TV shows are cancelled/postponed etc, because they have more important thing to show in TV or no method to show it. What anger me are people who post stupid "We must mourn and unite in their pain" thing...

I don't know, I think they should show it anyway... I could be that I just don't have any feelings on the tsunami and earthquake killing thousands of people.

I can't believe how heartless some people can be!!
This is just more terrifying than the earthquake itself.


I don't know, once you carry around a machine gun every day for a couple of months you get used to the fact that people die.


wat are u a freaking soldier well i too once hold Machine gun b4 an m16 and m-60 during basic training i miss it well i hope the people of japan can full through in this tragedy the japan will rise up remember how it rose up after the WWII if it can survive that it can survive this 1 i hope for the safety of the japanese and my fellow Filipinos in japan
