Posted by psgels on 22 February 2011 with categories: Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka?



Yes guys. If you gripe and kiss a girl you only met five minutes before, you will totally get away with it and she’ll even fall in love with you. I mean, I know that this episode provided a reason for it but it nevertheless was a really flimsy one that has been used to death by now.

Zombie’s episodes are either great, or boring cliche-fests. This was a clear example of the latter. This episode had some decent chemistry, which prevented it from being a complete disaster, but still the largest part was pretty boring. I mean, in the previous episode I didn’t complain about the fanservice because of the way it was used. This time it was just tasteless, especially when the X-Ray glasses popped up.

Still, this episode did have some good points, like being able to kill Megalos with noodle soup, or the various things that were written on the Tanabata-notes. The math explanations and weird theories about some demonic Santa Claus showing up at Tanabata also were pretty fun. Those were all mere details, though.

    Disappointing there was no Kyoko this episode. Best character of the show. Once you go Yandere, you don’t come back….because you’re dead.

    It may not have been the best episode, but it is still entertaining nonetheless.

    SANTA!

    Yeah, the revisionist Santa Claus story was priceless.

  4. Animenz says:

    I nearly fell off my chair of laughter when Ayumu put on the glasses.
    I totally didn’t expect the nude filter effect.
    Priceless.

    On the other hand, the tantacle rape scene was annoying.

  5. anon says:

    It’s a filler episode. -_-

    One and a half fillers in such a short series, with the previous episode a really half-baked attempt to animate one of the good parts of the manga, plus starting an anime original line (super evil dude knows hellscyer’s past) and this series is officially doomed to fail.

    Just drop this one and pick another one, it won’t get any better.

  6. Tomtom says:

    As much as i liked last week’s episode, this one was just meh. Marriage plot is retarded and the dialogue just wasn’t as clever as before.

  7. Ncrdrg says:

    I loved this episode. This kind of crazy humor is what I came to watch to show for. Criticizing it for the very reason this show is so unique and entertaining sounds completely wrong.

    Let’s just say we disagree here. Except the marriage part but it was handled well enough with his classmate for it to become randomly funny.

  8. xAnacondax says:

    Revisionist santa was the absolute hilight of the episode for sure. And I agree with all the comments that the series has been really hit or miss. When the comedy aspect works, it works better than most of the type I see, but when it fails, it fails hard core. I just wish the series would be a lot more consistent with the successes.

  9. ItsYou says:

    The only good parts of this episode was that girl that appeared at the end to give the glasses…and the Demon Santa.

    That aside, the episode was kinda bad >_>

    @Emma When you say Shoujo one, do you mean Kisshou Tennyo? I thought it was really good but IMO suffered above all else from neglecting some of the best characters and by rushing through interesting parts while devoting too much time to boring stuff. It was also sort of lacking in subtext IMO. But the dialogue and composition were just excellent. Way above average in that regard.

    @Emma I could not avoid the tears. This entire last volume has really torn me up. This manga really knows how to hold back on the grim/dark and effectively juxtapose it with happy cute things in a way that’s just devastating.

    Even the AVGN overlooked the game and never reviewed it as far as my knowledge goes.

    Contra on the NES was a masterpiece, but the series as a whole sadly flopped as soon as the 32 bit era drew to a close. While it was my favorite game on the NES at the time, in hindsight, Life Force was a far better game with gameplay that is sadly underestimated.

    @Realist: Been having a bit of a re-read of that shoujo one I recommended, still good mind with a strong lead, creepy in parts but very very heavyhanded in its gender politics, overly wordy and too short.

    @Realist: Ai-ren was one of those series I randomly just ran into and took a chance on. That and it was a big thing on 4chan a looong time ago. Certainly a downer alright even if I didn't cry at it.

    @Friend: I think as long as they know eachother well it should be fine. I wouldn’t mind meeting people from here in RL, psgels met up with a bunch of us when he came to US and it went pretty well. We all have the similar interests after all.

Nanatsu no Taizai – 08

There was a few questionable things here this episode. The episode starts with the new villain quite literally killing herself to enter the kingdom of the dead. Which is a big risk considering it was based on one sentence from a child she was threatening. True being a shounen show there’s likely some magical biology […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 07

As expected, this week we have another action filled episode. Queue the pretty explosions and fast paced fighting. It felt too short despite the episode length being just the same as the others. I often find that with a good episode of anime it makes you lose the concept of time as you watch. Making […]

Nanatsu no Taizai – 07

  I will admit it, I laughed at the beginning. The episode started with a pretty funny joke related to Meliodas and Elizabeth sleeping in the same bed. Maybe because this one didn’t have a second agenda of providing fanservice at the same time. Actually I enjoyed this episode a lot more than the previous. […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 06

I was mistaken in the previous review. The action scene I thought we would be getting today has been postponed till next week. This week we have a calm before the storm episode as things seem to be setting up for the fight scene to come. I am a little disappointed with this weeks fare […]

Nanatsu no Taizai – 06

There was quite number of still frames this episode so I hope that the animation budget isn’t starting to hurt. So our heroes triumph over the villains with a little help from Elizabeth. She showed some actual enginuity for once. As I was about to sigh as the villain was preparing to blab on about […]

Shingeki no Bahamut:Genesis- 05

Ah, the story progression that I was looking for. I finally find myself having a reason to get attached to Leone and Kaisar, because this episode devotes an entire episode to their rivalry and is just all around an improvement from last episode. I’ve talked about how the slow pacing hurts this show, and this […]

Parasyte-the Maxim- 03-05

Let me put up a disclaimer: When I first started to review this series, I didn’t foresee the obvious outcome that this show would end up so mediocre. I debated whether or not I should write reviews in groups of 2-3 episodes versus reviews that would drone on about the same issues every single episode, […]

Your Lie in April – 04 & 05

Episodes 4 and 5 of Your Lie in April were crucial ones in terms of how the series would develop. Episode 4 was a very important episode in the series as we see Kousei reintroduce himself to the music world after his mother’s death left him unable to play the piano. How the writers would […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 05

Always elegant. That is the motto of the Tohsaka household and the mask of Tohsaka Rin. The meaning clearly that no matter what you do, do it with style and grace. It is the creed which Rin upholds by playing the honor student. Though as you can see, at times cracks can appear in 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 […]

Kyousogiga Review – 90/100

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 […]

Pokemon: The Origin Review – 75/100

Normally I try to avoid spoilers with these reviews, but screw it, it’s Pokemon. Pokemon The Origin is a bomb of nostalgia. If you haven’t played Pokemon Red, Blue or Green, then you will not enjoy this one slight bit. This really is made as pure undilluted fanservice for the fans of the first games. […]

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 […]

Reviewing a comedy sequel usually is quite simple: in most cases it just drops the bomb and runs out of inspiration, and in rare cases it actually manages to stay hilarious. The tricky thing with these kinds of series is that you need to remain funny, and you need to have the inspiration for that. […]
