Zombie-Friendly Anime to Start Soon in Japan?

There’s a question mark in the title because, of course, I haven’t seen it yet, but hopefully it will be one of those series that gets snatched up and near-instantly subtitled on Hulu.

The show in question is called ‘Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?‘, and is summarized thusly:

Aikawa Ayumu is a normal high school boy. One day he is killed by a serial killer and revived as a zombie by a necromancer named Eucliwood Hellscythe. He starts to serve Eu as her guard but he happens to deprive the mahou shoujo Haruna of her magic power. Haruna orders Ayumu to fight against the anti-mahou shoujo system “Megalo” in her place.

That all sounds Zombie Friendly enough, and it’s nice that Japan has remembered that not all Zombies have to be depicted like Romero’s colorful and ultra-violent fantasy villains.

Anyway, ‘Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?’ starts January 11th in Japan, and hopefully will be popular enough to get an international release, and Pro-Zombie enough to earn our approval.
