Kore wa Zombie desu ka – Of the Dead 06
With the conclusion in episode 6, we’re finally getting somewhere with story progression! Yeah I know 90% of you out there aren’t as happy as me with these turn of events but seriously, the story in Kore wa Zombie isn’t so bad guys. Sure it does feel as if they’re throwing it in randomly considering we all view Zombie as a very not-so-serious series, but as much as it chooses to be serious, it still has comedy here and there. In other words, I’m asking of you all to try and enjoy the rest of the series for whatever it becomes (unless they pull off another advertising episode for the sake of selling their character singles…).
Now that Mysteltainn has been fixed, it was satisfying getting to see Aikawa back in action against what I consider to be one of the coolest megalo’s we’ve seen so far. It’s a fricken raccoon with a pistol! How cool is that!? *ahem* Alright, maybe I got a bit too excited there but as I said, I’ve really missed seeing Aikawa with his masou shoujo powers PLUS what’s with that twist at the end!? I know Christ hasn’t had much air time but far… that evil gaze really left an impression on me. I’m more than curious as to see what will develop in the future episodes to come!
Rating: I’ve decided to give it 8 out of 10. The episode had more than just comedy mixed into it; displaying a curious start to the story behind Kore wa Zombie – Of the Dead! I know most of you might not agree with me on this matter but I’ve always admired the ability to turn something as comedic as Kore wa Zombie into an actual story while keeping it funny. As lacking or uninteresting the story may become, that’s only due to our initial beliefs that Kore wa Zombie shouldn’t be a serious series at all. We got some good moments here and there in the first season, so why not in season 2 as well?
Kore wa Zombie really is something you’d enjoy mainly for the comedy but also for their characters. I’m sure you’ll all agree with me about how well done they portrayed Euu’s development in season 1 right? *silence…* Well even so, you can definitely tell how much I really enjoyed this episode for the comedy and also my desire for a story progression to begin. I doubt the next episode will be full on story so for those who’ve enjoyed the comedy immensely, rest assured.
Fun fact: If you reverse the chant Aiwaka says to transform, you’ll get “Raburi de Chamigu Dakedo Watashi(w)a shi o yobu mono!” which translates to “I am lovely and charming but I am the one who calls upon death!” Interesting isn’t it? Gotta give my thanks to SPIRAL over at CSW Blog for picking up on this.
