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.

    Yo Bam, I finally checked out wicked city and enjoyed it for the wonderfully trashy 80s exploitation it is, an entertaining watch.

    =< To each there own, I liked the spiderman reboot for how I felt Andrew Garfield had more charisma to play spiderman than Tobey Mcguire and the reboot I felt captured the source material a bit better.

    Sam Raimi’s Spiderman 2 is probably my second favorite superhero movie, then they went and fucked up the formula in Spiderman 3–which gave Corporate the excuse to come out with two shitty reboots several years later. The right thing to do there would’ve been to improve, not replace. Also, I have very mixed feelings about this news of a new Peter Parker specifically for Civil War.

    As awful as the punisher films were and ghost rider (the first one) they wound up guilty pleasures.

    The 90s X-men cartoon always ruined the characters for me to where I couldn’t properly enjoy them. It was MCavoy and Fassbender that made first class work for me.

    One of the things I particularly liked about Iron man 3 was how it dealt with the mandarin, when compared to the old cartoon this was a better take on the character I felt.

    But as much as I can’t get into the X-men and fantastic 4 as characters its Winter soldier I dislike the most out of the whole marvel universe stuff. A disappointment always belongs lower than something poor.

    I think the ones I personally didn’t like, were every X-men character related film other than first class , the first thor, iron-man 2 , the fantastic 4, the daredevil movie, The Sam raimi spiderman movies .

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 15

The word that encompasses this episode in a nutshell would be brutal. Whether you love her or hate her, I say few would believe that Illya deserved this fate. The tragedy is ever more pungent if you know the full details of her past. Anime only viewers may not get the most out of this […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 14

As a reader of the Fate/stay night visual novel I can confirm that the majority of this episode was anime original content. However instead of being about castors history like I thought, it’s of his backstory with her first master. In all honestly making the episode be about her history with Jason would have been […]

Death Parade Review – 65/100

  When I heard that Death Billards would be getting a full 12 episode series called Death Parade I was quite excited. The one episode short looked to be an excellent concept for a episodic series. A bar which people are sent to when they die which decides whether they go to heaven or hell […]

Death Parade – 12

So this is the end of Death Parade. Or at least this is the end of what may be it’s first and last season. The ongoing plot didn’t so much as tie itself up but rather fizzle out. Leaving a second season to tie up loose ends. A second season that may never come. I […]

Parasyte The Maxim Review-82.5/100

Parasyte, along with Gugure Kokkuri-San, are the only two shows from the last season that I’ve actually finished, and that’s actually saying quite a lot–seeing as how I haven’t been watching (much less blogging) anime at all this past season. However, I figured I should at least write a final review for Parasyte, just because […]

Death Parade – 11

So we are reaching the final conclusion and things are coming to a head. Chiyuki’s memories are restored and we find that in life she was an ice skater. An odd choice but it did lead to a rather beautiful scene of Chiyuki skating on Ice as she recalled her past. Admittedly I did try […]

Shirobako Review – 80/100

When you see a harem anime and sigh as the breasts of the female lead jiggle with every step and wind that can flip a skirt it’s easy to forget that somewhere in Japan a group of people worked hard to get that jiggle right and draw each frame of animation. The hardships of the […]

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 […]

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche.

Noucome! You do not want to know how long I have been waiting for a series like this. More than half a decade, at the very least. Finally a series comes along and puts the incredibly overused harem genre in its place. And it actually does it well. Thank you! So to elaborate: the harem […]

Normally I try to avoid spoilers with these reviews, but screw it, it’s Pokemon. Pokemon The Origin is a bomb of nostalgia.

Tamayura – More Aggressive Review – 75/100

I’m not going to dedicate a post for my impression for the final three episodes of this series. It was just too boring to write much about.

Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing. It’s a timeslot that on average tends to be aimed at a much older audience than usual, and having two series with the same mentality definitely helped to bring more diversity to anime overall. Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]
