Um. Yeah. I’m not going to blog softcore porn here…

Regarding the parts of this episode that weren’t part of High School of the Boobs, this episode created a new layer of chaos by finally showing the police being forced to take drastic measures, and actually kill people. It’s all a big build up to the second half of this series, and at least that part of the episode worked well.

This episode also introduced a really weird plothole with the dog. It was barking, it made noise, it was loud… and yet the zombies didn’t seem to care. I mean, these really are the most selective zombies I’ve seen, only responding to certain sounds while completely ignoring others. It’s a shame really. Zombie dogs would have been quite interesting here.

    The police officer shooting the protester made no sense. Since when does that restore order in an angry mob?

    Also, the angry mob itself doesn’t make sense. Their beliefs are absurd, and absurd beliefs don’t materialize out of nowhere spontaneously and so quickly.

    I am not surprised that you don’t like this, since I read the manga I really did not expect anything else, boobs + gore, that is all this manga/anime has to offer. Mediocre but still fun for me.

    i think the zombies only react to sounds made by metals.

  5. mambo says:

    hey… where’s unknownvoice?
    I want to hear his opinion about this episode :P

  6. UnknownVoice says:

    Sad to see that discussion in the bath was cut out :

  7. UnknownVoice says:

    Snippage for broken comment:

    As for dog barking – zombies do not usually go for animals. They react and eat and attack only humans. The same goes for this series. Zombies most likely treated the dog as some sort of inanimate object, going towards the sound and finding nothing.

    As for bath, if the fanservice is ignored, it was really interesting character build up episode as we got insights into how the minds of most of the cast work as well as into Rei’s relationship and confirmation on why she chose Hisashi over him.

    @jane
    You wake up. The city is full of zombies and government is restricting access. Gee i wonder what a random paranoid person would think~

  8. Shippoyasha says:

    Exactly UnknownVoice.

    Animals are usually off-limits for Zombies. Zombies propagate from humans and in large, only attack humans.

    Many Zombie movies and games have had moments where they had pets roam around freely while humans were in danger.

  9. m says:

    The other half of the soft core porn in this episode is Hirano, the incarnation of revenge fantasy for a loser, getting his toys. Pew pew.

    The mob is a caricature of anti-war protesters. There’s a scene missing where Hirano and Komuro decide that they’re left-wing hardliners stirring up trouble. It’s cheesy.

    Blind zombies shouldn’t be able to hunt well, slow zombies shouldn’t be popping up and surprising people, they shouldn’t be distributed all over the place, etc. The one rule of the zombies is that they will behave in whatever way is convenient for the scene. Everything goes for the sake of demonstrating the ineffectualness of society, and the danger the survivors face as their world turns against them.

  10. m says:

    An amusing counter-example. Unfortunately, YouTube users weren’t as generous in highlighting the zombie woman eating bugs off a tree.

  11. Frost says:

    Does anyone actually like this kind of fan service? Cuz this is horrible… Its anything but sexy

  12. Man0warr says:

    Maybe some people don’t realize this manga is drawn by a hentai artist for his brother (the author) and the whole thing is a parody/homage to zombie movies.

  13. Ebod says:

    I think it was at around this part in the manga that I stopped reading last time. I dunno, maybe I just find it hard to be aroused when there’s constant reminders of ZOMBIES roaming around outside. (And the line where it pretty much implies they’re not going to even attempt an explanation why the zombie breakout happened. Eh, they’re just there so we can have blood and gore and tits.)

  14. Alt says:

    DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK if you will be grossed out by scenes from the grossest gore flick ever made. Why am I posting it? It proves that dogs can get infected also. ^_^ It also has a cool zombie song. ^_~

    But I have always said that HSotD sucks. The blogsphere is just now beginning to realize where the budget went.

    I did lol @ the look on that dudes face when he found his fist “real” real guns tho. Priceless.

    But again, high cost makes publishers weary of shaking things up too much. Back then 5-10 people could’ve made a fully functional game, that was deemed graphically appropriate for the times; now the cost waltzes in millions of dollars. It’s really the same with movies.

    @K-off: haa! Why do I feel as if you have Quantum Break in mind? The problem is that the conventions are so ingrained that a company forgets that their making a ‘new’ game, and instead sought out to make a new MMORPG, Third Person Adventure or FPS shooter etc. “Innovation” has become the last step instead of first, and it really comprises of adding on a few bells and whistles.

    @K-off, All the while trying to rip apart the game and sell it back to you as DLC.
    Speaking of lazy after I am annoyed after I found out that half the bosses in Kirby Rainbow Paintbrush is just the first bosses repeated. Nobody likes repeated boss fights. Ever.

    @Bam Triple A games have become so lazy probably because companies know the consumers will settle for anything. Make a flashy ad campaign, shoe-horn in minor “innovations” like motion capture and some other gimmick and people will play it, forget about it and move on to the next piece of shit.

    It’s either a 4.5 and a Mobius, or an Occulus and a better graphic card for me; can’t swing both ways on that unless I come into some money.

    I’m not into Nintendo at all and their offerings over the last few years doesn’t do anything for me. I’m looking forward to the PS4.5 and getting a VR headset for my PC though…

    The only Japanese games that make it big are the ones that rely on brand recognition or some simple yet polished gimmick. Souls games get around actual size by forcing repetition due to difficulty, otherwise they’ll be crushed against the Witchers and Elder Scrolls of the world. Aside from such niche markets, only Nintendo, SquareEnix and Capcom remain.

    AAA games take a lot to produce. With the sandbox world becoming a staple in gaming, and shoehorned into every imaginable genre, you need way too many artists to render these worlds and fill em up with all the details; otherwise they’d be shunned for looking bland.

    Konami’s situation has a lot to do with the state of the industry. With every consecutive generation games become more expensive to produce, really stretching the Japanese companies thin. About 70% of the Japanese producer/publishers that were around during the PS1 era have either been bought out, closed down, or reduced to producing portable games; since they really don’t have the resources to go head-to-head with Rockstars and Blizzards of the west.

    Finally I do think they’ll do something with Zelda beyond the game. There are rumors saying that’s very probable it’ll have VA. So maybe an animated short or a movie I think. Since they already used the orchestra for the 25th, and they might want to put out something different.

Bungou Stray Dogs – 04

Bungou Stray Dogs sure never get tired to showcase more new characters every week, and judging from the OP I’m certain that there are more to come. This week there are 3 more new faces and each of them is over the top in their own ways, but that turns out to be for good […]

Joker Game – 04

I am starting to get a little worried about Joker Game. After a very strong start it’s gone down in quality once it revealed it’s episodic format. This episode marks the lowest point of the series so far though I still don’t think of it as bad. Rather than focus on a member of the […]

Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World – 04

Despite nearly dying our protagonist wakes up out of the loop and now in the mansion of a strange clown like fellow with twin maids. The mansion looks to be Emilia’s home and we not look to be in a new time loop as evidenced by the last scene where it appears that Subaru was […]

Kiznaiver – 03

So this episode was an introduction to our new seventh Kiznaiver who looks to be a roguish shut in with a pendent for self harm. Adding a masochist to a group that shares pain is certainly a dilemma but I wonder just how they plan to make use of him in the plot. Considering that […]

Flying witch – 03

Flying witch has another solid episode this week. Flying week’s formula seems to be half of Makoto the witch getting to know an everyday country life, and other half of Makoto’s witchcrafts and meeting people from that magic world. All of these stories take place mostly in a single location as well, this time are […]

Mayoiga – 04

It’s until this week that I just noticed the rather strange part of the OP of Mayoiga, the sequence was shown in the point of view of Masaki. It starts with her, then introducing the cast and finally ends with her standing alone in the lost village. But when I think about that, only in […]

Bungou Stray Dogs – 03

This week Bungou Stray Dogs had improved a lot over its last episode, probably because the main storyline has kicked in. Look, I’m always in favor for character developments more than plot development, and one of my favorite character development is through the small character moments when the cast interacts with each other. That’s why […]

Schwarzesmarken – 65/100

Schwarzesmarken is a strange title in that it has a setting with fantastic potential yet the story is dampened by a rushed pacing and Missing characterisation. Despite this there are signs of a greater story under the hood and at times that story can shine despite haphazard adaption. The Stasi make for a great villain […]

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – 85/100

In the large reservoir of anime it is surprising just how few titles focus on the concept of time travel. There are of course titles which feature time travel but few that make it the core focus. So here we have Boku Machi or ERASED, a tale about a mangaka time traveling to his childhood […]

Gangsta. – 58/100

Gangsta is an anime with a lot of things going for it. A mature cast, gritty themes, a interesting setting and a trio of main characters who can carry the show. However due to a number of factors it never quite reached its potential. The main trio of characters are unconventional and quite interesting with […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 80/100

Gakkou is one with a good facade as promotional material would have you believe it was some dime a dozen moe slice of life. I was one who wasn’t fooled by the cute cuddly exterior but I was truly surprised with just how good this anime ended up being. Gakkou is one of those rare […]

Little Witch Academia The Enchanted Parade – 81/100

I wonder when it was that a film being childish became a flaw. As a medium grows it takes steps to aim to mature itself and seek a more intellectual level of presenting entertainment.

Shirobako Review – 80/100

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]
