Ayumu x Haruna bros 4 life
|K-koreZom has a plot?! …At the same time, it looks like Ayumu has a dojinshi writer on his hands now, so it can’t be all that serious. …I guess there was a miscommunication with the subs and me too last episode since I thought that the thing about Chris that Kyouko mailed Ayumu was something else. Oh well. At least Fosh caught it. Oh and he also informed me that the next episode is the last. WHY IS THIS ANIME SO SHORT?!|
|The crazy adventures of Ayumu continue to roll along at a really slow pace for me and a few others, but it seems like it will be officially ending with the next episode which makes me quite sad…ah well I think they are setting us up for another season or even a movie? Personally I will pretty much watch anything Kore wa zombie related because I find the characters and setting to be very interesting and of course the hilarious comedy!
Plot has Ayumu and friends meet Naegleria Nebiros from Yuu’s past that can “defeat” Chris-chan.
Dai-sensei-“Fufufufu. Hello there, Ayumu! So what are you wearing right now?”
A new challenger appears!?
Nene-“Oh hello new best friend can you help me with my manga?” Ayumu-“Uhh is this a BL manga?”
With every new season of a continuing series you will always get brand new characters! Like Chris-chan and with this latest episode you meet someone from Yuu’s past: Naegleria Nebrios aka Nene. But who is she anyway, besides having boobs as big as Ayumu’s head? Nene was the one who created Yuu’s special magic armor and she was also one of the strongest fighters from the underworld who apparently fought magical girls in some epic war. In the real world she is now a manga artist suffering from too much sleep or a form of narcolepsy or something like that, but she is quiet friendly with Ayumu and his crew of odd friends. However, Anderson-kun appears to be terrified of her after the mention of her name…I guess she really is some type of badass from the underworld.
Drawing manga is hard work yo!
Ayumu-“I don’t want to draw two dudes kissing!” Nene-“Think of the profits! Girls love that stuff.”
I want to see this manga get animated! Oh wait…
Haruna-“OH MY GOD PAPER MONSTER! RUN!!” Seraphim-“You need to stop getting high, Haruna.”
Half of the episode basically follows Ayumu, Haruna, Yuu, Seraphim and Nene working together just to help their new friend complete her manga…where have we seen this before? Oh right Nichijou and every other series? I guess it really pays off to have friends to help you on your manga work. I will become completely honest and say that is a silly plot for a supernatural series, but hey it worked nicely to bring emotion because Nene’s manga story was about Yuu’s other life in the underworld with her close friends.
Ninja vampires and zombies in love?
Ah the wonderful magic of a indirect kiss! Only found in the world of anime…
The other half of the episode follows some strange developments around Saraswati or as some have called it “acting out of character”, which is right on because her character pretty much changed overnight or is she just messing with Ayumu’s mind to get his rear? I can see that happening in the end… Anyway, Saraswati holds a random concert and he promises to show up, which thankfully he does or she would have been very angry! At least he can’t die so he is safe right? So what do you think? Is this love of hers real or is she just acting for another reason?
Two worlds at war I think…
Yuu and the old King of Night sharing a moment in the past.
Nene-“Good to have you back, my drunken friend.” Chris-chan-“I need ten more shots stat!”
There was one interesting reveal with the underworld and the magical girl world. I guess they had a massive war back in the day? I think I missed that important history lesson in school… Anyway, we saw a short flashbacks with Yuu when she was free of her magical armor, able to express emotions and freely talk with people like the King of Night. I hope they explore that world a bit more in movie form or in a third season? Because there were more characters hidden in the shadows that seemed interesting, but what about earth? I assume earth is just neutral ground because we saw Chris-chan having drinks with Nane at the end of the episode.
Haruna-“I am having a ball with this lazy expression yo!”
Ayumu-“Something about this doesn’t feel right…I think I should be falling on top of you!”
Haruna-“AAAHHH THE ROOM IS ON FIRE!” Ayumu-“Are you feeling alright, Haruna-chan?”
This is pretty much Fosh’s face after learning this series ends next week.
…I miss the King of Night. This show has a sad lack of male characters that aren’t crossdressers, random comic relief characters or Orito. On the up side though, at least Anderson was kind of useful this episode. I still don’t quite understand his fear of Nene yet though. Is she extremely powerful? Does he have a phobia against narcolepsy? … Did she write a BL about him? I kind of want to know now. I thought this episode would be dedicated to Sera since it had her favourite word in the title, but I guess Sara was another possibility. …I wasn’t expecting her dereness though. I mean, she didn’t even drool over Ayumu’s goods once this episode. They really are trying to make every single one of his harem more appealing this season.
Speaking of, is Nene possible Ayumu harem material? It’s extremely probable. I thought Nene’s seiyuu sounded familiar and apparently it’s the same person who voiced Yukiko in Persona 4. Ahahaha, I kind of wish her character was a hardcore fujoshi (…I want to see Ayumu’s reaction… though then again, the guy didn’t even flinch at the sight of a BL book), but having her write a sweet story about Yu is great too. She’s friends with Chris, so it’s not surprising that she wouldn’t want to fight her, but I think she was serious about the consequences if they fought. Nene seemed like the type of character who would fight her friend on a whim just because someone asked, so I don’t think she was trying to avoid a conflict by saying that it would result in a big battle. …Though I could be wrong. Anyways, I hope they go into the backstory of Chris and Nene a bit sometime since both of them are technically supposed to be enemies.
This wasn’t the best episode of all time because Ayumu was getting the usual treatment thanks to a giant misunderstanding related to Haruna seeing Nene wrapped in a towel asleep on Ayumu, but hey that is one of the funny reasons to watch Kore wa zombie, right? I don’t mind Nene’s character introduction to the series, but in the end she is just another harem character with huge melon boobs who is a badass fighter? I really want to see her in action or maybe in flashback form? Either way she made me laugh with her random sleeping moments and her expressions were quite hilarious.
Besides the new boob girl, I enjoyed watching those short scenes with Yuu’s past life, who made her fancy anti magic armor and the old King of Night before he went all evil on us. But what I really want is more information on the underworld versus the magical girl world! I swear that would make for a great one hour movie just imagine the awesome fight scenes!? Overall this was a decent episode filled with a few random moments with Saraswati and the newest character aka Ayumu’s harem gains one new member.
Original Yuu is killing herself with the power of her epic manga…
Final episode next week and Fosh will cry lots of manly tears…
