Kore wa Zombie desu ka – Of the Dead 9 – 10 [END]
Adorable… absolutely adorable! First it was Mero who had surprised me how cute she could be in episode 9 of Sankarea and now Saras has really stolen the spotlight! We’ve never seen such a gorgeous side to Seras strict and abusive nature before up till now. Surprised is an understatement for what had happened and what became of it near the end. My body wasn’t ready! It was just so beautiful how Saras approached him after the concert and… and… and that indirect kiss!! HNNNG~!
Maybe you won’t agree but being able to make Seras such a lovable character without disregarding her personality to bring about the beautiful scenes we see her with Aikawa is admirable. Everything clicked in place where it should’ve; making their interaction so lovable to watch! What’s more is that Eu’s past served as a good prologue to introduce our dynamite sakuru, Negrelia Nebiros – the strongest warrior in the Underworld. Not only that, it had set up a potentially exciting story for season 3 (which will eventually air in the future).
Episode 10 was definitely not the end I had imagined it to be but you can say season 2 is only a half of the story Kore Zombie wishes to tell. Pondering on it now, it was a good decision to leave things off as a cliffhanger than try to conclude the story in season 2 then moving onto another for season 3. If it were like that, I can’t help but think they’re only milking the franchise and should’ve left it alone at season 1. There seems to be a new character as well so I’m definitely intrigued as to what role she plays in season 3 (Of course, I’m talking about that blonde-haired chick with the tiger plushie during the credits).
Rating: I’ve decided to give both episodes an overall 8 out of 10. Episode 10 had slightly brought down episode 9′s stand-alone 9 out of 10 rating because it really did feel like a wasted amount of time at some points. The slime test wasn’t necessary and left a bad taste in my mouth; unable to enjoy Aikawa’s dilema completely how I had hoped. Don’t get me wrong folks, it was still funny seeing Aikawa’s different selves and I can’t say I didn’t find Eu’s effort in bringing his memories back to be slightly moving because it was. As you can tell already from up top, I adored episode 9 and now found a new side to love about Saras. Sadly, everything must come to an end eventually so I leave you with this and hope to see you around for season 3. You won’t want to miss it!
