Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? is not pefect. It had a flawed first episode, with several clichés present, a couple things that could have been done better, and a fair amount of fanservice. Yet it was so much fun that I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode. After all, there was a chick with a chainsaw. How can you go wrong with a freaking chainsaw?
I really feel for the main character. He’s a zombie with human feelings stuck in a harem setting. Yet, if a human male were a zombie, wouldn’t that mean their penis was no longer capable of working? That would be a sad sad situation to be stuck in, to be a teenage male surrounded by beautiful women and unable to do anything. Not to mention, since he’s immortal, he just gets to enjoy all sots of painful things instead. First he got hits by a truck. Then chopped in half. All in the normal life of being a zombie I suppose.
The best part of the episode for me was the ending where the zombie finds himself in the role of a magical boy…complete with a magical girl outfit. It was so far outside the norm, completely ridiculous, and freaking hilarious.
As I said, the show is flawed. However for me, the sense of fun in the show outweighs the flaws. That, and the actual story of hunting down the one who killed our main hero is semi-interesting to me. I have a bad feeling that this will turn out to have a plotline that makes no sense, but it doesn’t hurt to hope.
