Ratings & Reviews
A Unique and Cute Experience
This anime will have you busting out laughing from the first episode. The giggles will continue on from there. A short series in a complex world that begs the question; why isn't there more seasons? I love that the filler episodes are saved till the very end. I wish more anime series did this, because filler episodes really slow down the anime's plot progress. The story is fun, dramatic, and not just for the guys. ;P
Zombie, in a cute pink dress!
I first saw an episode Is This A Zombie? on an anime preview channel. I liked what I saw, so in 2014 I decided to purchase the entire season 1 combo pack during the Holiday Sale on rightstuf.com. I'm glad that I made the choice, because this anime is hilarious! The main protagonist Ayumu Aikawa is a lot like other male leads in harem anime, except he's a DEAD high school boy who lives with girls and has the power to transform into a magical garment girl. And the girls he lives with aren't the typical frivolous flirts who throw themselves at him. Eucilwood is a Necromancer whose words are her power but won't speak, Seraphim is a vampire ninja who is absolutely disgusted with Ayumu, and Haruna is a young, magical garment girl who wields a pink chainsaw named Mystletainn. They pull together in an anime full of comedy, action, cute girls, gore, zombies and rolled omelettes (also flying whales and sticky head bombs). This anime is a fun ride and worth the watch!
High quality comedy
by Connor -
Is this a zombie has hilarious bits and pieces stitched into almost every scene. The greatest thing is they have a nice blend of serious plot scenes mixed in to make you wanting to watch more and entertaining continuously. I would recommend this to teens to adults because they do have quite a few fanservice scenes not for kids. This is not a scary anime, but mostly making a joke out of zombies nd making them seem fun people.
Bit of an oddball comedy
by Sean -
This anime has a real...strange premise. Though with all the characters treating it as normal, you soon will too. With several oddball situations to deal with each episode, the main character is our only voice of reason in this world gone mad. Whether you like subs or dubs, both are expertly done in this case. Every voice fits the character they are paired with, and their actions are expressed with feeling.
