First Impression – Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka?

Mahou Shoujo is so yesterday….Mahou SHOUNEN is all the rage

Overcooled: None of us really wanted to touch this, much like Rio, due to the daunting aspect of trying to deal with both loli, harem, ecchi and zombies all in one. So here we are, doing the first impression of a show we expected almost nothing from. I think you’ll be surprised when you see our end thoughts on the show though.

Foshizzel: zombie’s and moe characters?! this sounds like a strange but unique spin on the harem theme show and a chick with a magical chain saw?! lets see how things turn out…

Overcooled: It starts off mediocre enough, with the typical male protagonist foreshadowing how his comfortable everyday life is going to change. On the way home from school, he sees a cat about to get hit by a truck and dives in to save it. However, in turn, he gets hit by the truck. If you thought this is where he turns into a zombie: you’re wrong. He goes “LULZ I’m already a zombie” before getting hit and sails into the sky in all his naked glory.

Being  a zombie, he makes it home in one piece with nothing more than a sore body. A mute girl named Eucliwood Hellscythe clad in crazy armour stares at him and demands he makes dinner (using a notepad to communicate). Ever the optimist, he’s convinced that she’s secretly super dere under all that tsun. His fantasies seem to be a bit off, because its not long before she breaks his arm for so much as trying to touch her. The only reason she seems to be living with him is because she resurrected him so he could find his murderer.

How does an average kid find a serial killer? Wander around at night randomly and hope for the best. At least he’s aware that he’s not exactly Sherlock Holmes material, here. (This ain’t no Gosick) He ends up chilling in a graveyard, calmed by the smell of rotting old people and creepy noises. While the graveyard doesn’t rattle his cage, a loli with a chainsaw popping out of nowhere and nearly slicing him in two does the trick.

Poor Aikawa barely dodges one thing, and just gets stabbed by another. A giant pedobear is after the loli, and accidentally skewers Aikawa. Haruna decides to perform a sacrificial kill, the power of her panties splitting Aikawa clean in half and killing the bear. Oh, wait, it was chainsaw, not her panties.  They’re both so effective, it’s hard to tell sometimes.


Aikawa’s top half calmly complains to the loli about her violence, even if it was in self-defense against a pedo. She’s surprised to learn he’s a zombie, despite being a kooky “Masou Shoujo” herself (yeah, I don’t know why it’s not “Mahou”). While trying to erase his memories, she ends up becoming naked. Don’t you just hate it when that happens?

Oh, are you cosplaying as someone from Freezing! now? Oh wait, you’re naked. Same thing.

Powerless and pantsless, a horrible combo, she has no choice but to follow Aikawa home and stay with him until her powers return. Haruna is actually pretty cute, batting at a phone like a cat and being more like the tsundere Aikawa imagines in his head. 2 girls under one roof, and he’s still so “meh” about it that he just plods off to school the next day without banging either of them.

School is normal (aside from almost dying in the sunlight), until class ends and he has to wait for nightfall. Left all alone, a rapist enters the classroom and tries buttrape him. I love this show. Anyways, Haruna jumps in to save him, but the man is only interested in Aikawa since he has all of the loli’s power. We get two transformations: one cute and one horrendous. Hint: the end result of the horrendous one is a giant red crayfish.

Warming up your winter one pink ribbon at a time

Haruna catches the naked disease again, leaving her utterly powerless. Aikawa tries to be the hero in her place, using his full potential as a zombie, but doesn’t quite finish off the crayfish. Not like this. No, what he needs is a pink hat and striped panties. And maybe a chainsaw. With these things he finishes off the crayfish with the power of STRIPES! After he wins, the entire school sees him and takes pictures with their cellphones. With that, Kore Zombie ends. :3

Haruna or Aikawa? I’ll leave it to you to either puke or HNNNGGGHHH

Winnie the Pooh~ Gonna eat choo~

End Thoughts:
Foshizzel:thought it was going to be a boring dumb show but turned out to be funny

Overcooled: Yeah, I saw “harem” and almost refused to watch it then and there but then…wow…it turned out to be funny

Foshizzel:Yeah that’s the same way I feel about it

Overcooled: I was won over by the time he got hit by the car and sailed through the sky. And when he transformed into a magical girl, moaning along the way? FAN FOR LIFE

Foshizzel:Oh yeah that was funny got owned then spins xD Yeah the magical guy transformation! lol…

Overcooled: It reminded me of baka to test…XD I love my traps, afterall. Do you think he’ll transform every episode?

Foshizzel:I hope not or things might get really old fast, it has a bit of an MM! feel to it

Overcooled: I want him to…I don’t get that MM! feel where things will get boring very fast if they’re overused, because the comedic timing is really good

Foshizzel:Right that is true too if they can keep up the comedy it will be a great show. The characters seem to fun

Overcooled: Yeah, I like the characters too. I was worried that when more of the harem girls come in, things would get bad…but then I realized that the current girls are pretty damn awesome so I feel like it’ll be safe XD

Foshizzel:Haha yes yes I think theres a witch girl or something like that too. The quiet girl seems like the moe bait though

Overcooled: WITCH GIRL? =O

Foshizzel: I think so

Overcooled: BAD. ASS.

Foshizzel:Hmm this is interesting. She’s a short vampire ninja named Seraphim.

Overcooled: Oh my god. A vampire ninja. I’m watching the hell out of this

Foshizzel:Haha nice xD


Foshizzel:Yep loll

Overcooled: Or maybe I’m delusional because of the lack of good anime this season

Foshizzel:Hahah yeah there have been quite a few fails

Overcooled: Before we finish up, what was your favourite part of the episode?

Foshizzel: Oh it had to be the magical transformation for the guy i died laughing hard

Overcooled: YES I didn’t see that coming at ALL

Foshizzel:Yeah that came out of nowhere

Overcooled: Probably my favourite part too.

Foshizzel:The girl’s chainsaw best magical weapon ever

Overcooled: I want a PINK chainsaw!

Foshizzel:So much pink xD

Overcooled: Haruna and Merry should hook up

Foshizzel:Haha yes! agreed. Pink and purple

Overcooled: Lulz can’t wait to see cute cosplayer girls for this show. Overall I guess that’s mostly all….we didn’t expect a lot, but were proven wrong. XD

Foshizzel:Yep! First thought it would be boring but nope turned out to be actually fun

Overcooled: And you’ll be covering it from now on right?

Foshizzel:Looks that way sure xD

Overcooled: Awesomesauce. the more stripey panties on Metanorn, the better =D


We live, laugh, enjoy and strictly believe on "more the merrier". When together, we usually come up with very chatty, conversation-based episodics and interesting posts.

  6. Tofu says:

    I guess it’s safe to use the quote: Don’t judge a book by it’s cover deshou? x3 This is WIN for me and no way am I gonna drop this, just too good. Fosh, I’m counting on you to make good posts on this show xD

    I can’t wait till Hikasa Yoko’s character (Sera who is a vampire according to MAL) comes on!!! <3 <3 HNNNNGGGG~~~~!!

    • Foshizzel says:

      I shall do my best! looks like a great show to watch and follow.

      Sera sounds like fun i mean a vampire and a ninja?! great combo! 😛

      • Tofu says:

        Pfft, what you on about Fosh, It’s an EPIC combo because of Hikasa Yoko~ =P

        • Foshizzel says:

          Well I am not to familiar on voices all to well, there are a few I can remember but sounds good 😀

          • Tofu says:

            Hikasa Yoko, the goddess who voiced Mio Akiyama in K-ON (She’s the only seiyuu I am very knowledgeable on) Who now voices as Houki Shinonono~~!! <3

  7. amado says:

    he fails at character types, she is definitely more of a kuudere than a tsundere.

  8. Namika says:

    Imma watch this…….. O_O

  9. Captain says:

    Panty shot.

  10. BlackLagoon187 says:

    When the guy picked up the chainsaw me and my cousin were like omfg he’s gonna transform to a mahou shoujo and to our surprise he actually did o.0

    Definitely had a huge laugh hope that it will be consistent. If not… well I’ll continue to watch it, after all I’m known as BL around here. Rofl jks

    • Overcooled says:

      That awkward moment when you’re like “Ha, this is so going to happen” but don’t actually expect it to…and it happens O_O

      Lawl, let’s hope they didn’t use up all of their best jokes in the first episode. XD Ahaha

  11. Elyon says:

    Aikawa pantsu. DO WANT. XD

  12. anaaga says:

    just watched it. it’s soooo effin funny! i love that part where the crayfish said “i want you!” and aikawa just grabbed his butt out of reflex xD. and the transformation, PURE WIN. and i laughed at aikawa’s bio after the ED. he’s an uke! aikawa’s panties are nice too

    am so watching this 😀

  13. BlackBriar says:

    What? Excuse me? Vampire ninja girl? I’m immediately sold. Can’t wait to check it out. I’ll be waiting anxiously.

  14. Gunny says:

    lol. this really surprised me. Nothing, actually NOTHING went the way I thought it would be. Right from the scene where I tought Aikawa would become a zombie for the sake of some random cat… he smiles all sparkly and says that he is a zombie ALREADY. Caught me toooootally off guard. Then, after that, I just came to like this show more and more. The pink chainsaw is so win. Oh, it reminded me a little of Dokuro-chan too. ;p

    btw, I like Aikawa’s eyes a LOT. d;
    completly foolowing this.

    • Gunny says:

      I mean, following. FOOLowing is good too. ;p

    • Overcooled says:

      I thought he was going to die too, and a lame death at that, but it was saved by him already being a zombie. Whew. This show is just full of surprises~ XD

  15. Hime says:

    What is this I don’t even.
    URG, I don’t have time for any more shows! But it’s so funneh…god dammit. Watching…

  16. cassi says:

    Awesome! It didn’t sound very promising but the first episode was absolutely hilarious!

  17. Milistaier says:

    ok, when i saw this episode few days ago, i was wondering come from staying a little in the sun in the class, he got all dryed up and needed to stay in class till it got dark outside, BUT, at the begging of the series, HE WAS WALKING OUTSIDE WITH NO PROBLEMS AT ALL, you know before he got hit by the car coz of the cat…and then he was all naked under the bright sky, and it didn’t affect him…so why he couldn’t go home, if he was walking with no problems at the begging …

    • Overcooled says:

      I was wondering about that too…He also still sat in the sun after getting hydrated again…I guess this is one of those shows where logic and continuity goes out the window <_<

      • Milistaier says:

        lol….i saw many of them these past days O,o, but is seriously weird…anyway when does the next episode arrive?

  18. zabobinator says:


    …I was slightly disturbed by how he looked in panties. T_T

  19. Namika says:

    This was so HILARIOUS!!!! XD
    I stunned out of words here LOL this is so funny!
    And the screenshots were amazing 😀 Soul resonance and the Winnie the Pooh ones were the best XD

  20. 3242 says:
