Checking Back in with ‘Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?’

A couple of weeks ago I assessed the first episode of ‘Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?’, which is streaming (legally) over at Crunchyroll, for the ZRC.

I’ve been keeping up, and saw the third episode this afternoon. So far.. so good, at least as far as Zombie Rights is concerned.

The second episode introduced an incredibly stereotyped anime ninja (who is also a vampire) and continued the madcap, bizarre excessiveness that made the first episode so much fun to watch, while continuing to depict Zombies as upstanding members of society.

The third.. eh. It’s still very Zombie Friendly, but the humor falls a little flat, though the plot seems to be picking up.

Still, the ZRC is overall very, very pleased that we finally have an outright Zombie Friendly series coming out of Japan, to help offset the Dead Risings, Resident Evils and Highschool of the Dead, amongst many other unfortunate cultural effluvia.

I’ll keep checking in once a week to make sure there’s no backsliding, naturally. Monitoring the media is one of the many services we provide here at the ZRC.

(Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? can be seen at Crunchyroll here. New episodes debut for paying members on Mondays, unlocking a week later for free viewing for everyone else.)
