‘Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?’ Second Season Details, New ‘of the Dead’ Suffix

| January 7, 2012

The ZRC was pleasantly surprised by ‘Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?’, and ultimately regarded the first season as uneven but Zombie Friendly. News of a second season therefore made us happy as well. More details on the second season are becoming available now, along with a surprisingly tawdry little promo video: The Japanese publisher Kadokawa [...]

Hooray, a Second Season of ‘Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?’

| November 1, 2011

Good news: Zombie Friendly anime series ‘Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?’/’Is This a Zombie’ has another season coming: The Japanese publishing conglomerate Kadokawa announced on Monday that the 10th volume of Shinichi Kimura’s original Kore wa Zombie desu ka? (Is This a Zombie?) light novel series will bundle its second original anime DVD in a [...]

Geek.Kon and the ZRC: The Whole Story

| September 19, 2011

I’ve hesitated to write this post about our ill-fated attendance at Geek.kon all week, despite interested parties, Zombie Allies and dear friends asking about it in the intervening time, because the ZRC is about positive change, working toward a brighter tomorrow for the Living and Undead alike. We don’t like burning bridges. But, as longtime [...]

The Zombie Rights Campaign Official Statement on Geek.kon Controversy

| September 7, 2011

We received a comment here on the blog recently from an ‘animelover’ who seems to have trawled our archives back for months and discovered the post covering the ‘Zombie Walk Against Walker’, a prominent and highly successful bit of political activism by the Differently Animated here in Madison last spring. For the record, as we [...]

New Suda51 Title Appears to be Anti-Zombie Gorefest

| July 27, 2011

Videogame auteur Goichi Suda, widely known as Suda51, has become famous for making edgy, bizarre, sardonic titles aimed at adult gamers and is best known for the ‘No More Heroes franchise. It appears however that he has decided to cash in while the money’s so very good and make an Anti-Zombie videogame of his own: [...]

‘Kore wa Zombie Desu ka’ Picked up by Funimation; English Title ‘Is This a Zombie?’

| May 24, 2011

The ZRC followed ‘Kore wa Zombie Desu ka’ with interest here on the blog, from the initial announcement through to its simulcast premiere and screening, and overall, we liked it quite a bit. Oddly enough I never went back and completed a review for the show, despite watching every episode, and I’m reminded of that [...]

The ZRC Reviews ‘High School of the Dead’

| April 8, 2011

I watched ‘High School of the Dead’ a while ago actually, and then completely forgot to review it, because the sheer, steaming, reeking *awfulness* of it must have scoured my mind clear of willpower and left me desperately trying to develop amnesia through force of will. Then BuyZombie had to dredge up the painful memories [...]

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

| January 24, 2011

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 [...]

ZRC Reviews First Episode of ‘Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?’

| January 11, 2011

We first heard about this new anime series some time ago, at which point I was fairly skeptical we’d see it in America anytime soon. I mean, most stuff that comes out of Japan relating to Zombies is drenched in gore and defamation, so would there be much demand for a potentially Zombie Friendly, and [...]

‘Kore wa Zombie desu ka?’ to be Simulcast on Crunchyroll

| January 6, 2011

I guess this announcement, which hopefully lays the groundwork for a DVD release here in the US, means I have to get the ZRC a Crunchyroll account: Crunchryoll has announced their first of three simulcast series today with Kore wa Zombie desu ka? which translates so very easy to “Are you a zombie?” which boggles [...]
