The first episode was really good, id just prefer that whiny high school bitch was eaten and they replaced her with a strong female character

The plot is over-done, but hopefully the anime is more than it seems. I'll give it a shot.

The first episode is pretty good, I liked the eerie, thrilling, yet doomed apocalypse atmosphere. The drama and romance too, were nicely done. Animation was nice. Fighting scenes were ok but this is sure to get better in the later action-packed episodes.

I remember reading the manga and getting increasingly and finally unbearably annoyed at the excessive and sometimes disgusting fanservice. (I could and I did ignore all that boobs bouncing around and the too-frequent panty shots and go on enjoying the zombie-slashing action. But later on in the manga, the fanservice got so overboard it was absolutely stupid.) The anime seems to follow the manga very closely but I hope the fanservice will be toned down a little. That's probably not gonna happen though, from the looks of the OP.


well it is the end of the world after all, you got to have a little fun o.o

I thought it was pretty nice the story line yes i will agree with a lot of you yes there is countless zombie flicks every where. But i also think it is kinda of refreshing also you get to see whats happening through a teens eyes, like at the one part "if you have not seen this yet sorry dont want to spoil it" but when the girls are running and go "we will be BFF forever even through this" and the one girl get caught her friend right away basically says screw you im out of here. I dont like where they are going with the love drama if you are running from zombies are you really going to care if some girl likes you. On another note if they keep up on the action and art work and scenes i think i will be a big fan of this just drop the love drama down a notch.

Very mixed impression from the first episode:
-Good amount of action and blood for a horror series
-Excellent music
-Majority of the casts are pretty well known (too bad Mamoru Miyano only gets to voice in the first episode)
-I see some tragedies and angst happening, so that's all good (well, the first one's way TOO predictable to say the least)

-Ecchi + Horror is possibly one of the most distasteful combination of genres.
-Wanton fanservice, bouncing breasts, panty shots and male gaze are ridiculous to the point of becoming disturbing.
-The artstyle is a bit lacking, but it's not as bad as Higurashi (although, some of the casts' insane laughs are priceless)
-The Zombie apocaplyse plot is getting pretty cliche to be honest.
-The majority of the female casts are either pissing me off or will piss me off at some point sooner or later

Am I the only one that doesn't care about the Ecchi? Which is a weird thing for me to say since I usually get very pissed off when there's fanservice thrown in all over the place. But I'm going to compare this to Elfen Lied. Even though it's Ecchi and there's fanservice thrown in all over the place I don't stop too think about it for one second. And I think the Gore and Actions is to blame for that. When there's so much Gore and Action going on it seems I just get devoured by it and don't care one bit about the Ecchi parts. It's like blood blood blood blood blood panties blood blood blood. Did I miss something? All I saw was blood x)

And what's up with everyone complaining about the plot? Too me it was refreshing to get a break from the overly hyperactive only about the ecchi worthless comedy animes that has been flooting around lately.

I could care less either I like a little fan-service and this series deliverers. I mean it's the end of the world after all so why not have a little fun while you can.

I agree with you. And I guess when it comes to Action/Horror animes I'm like a kid in a candy store.

On a side not! Now there's 3 new ongoing animes that I actually want to watch! Wooo!

I guess whether one cares or doesn't care about ecchi elements purely depends on personal opinions. Elfen Lied, I must admit is one of the best tragedy horror I've read (I've dropped the anime unfortunately). Sure there's a lot of nudity and some 'lighter-moments', which I didn't particularly like, but the violence and blood is pretty excessive. I wished that there was more 'diversity' in how the people got killed; considering how 90% of the deaths were either through massacre by decapitation or amputations, by the time the series almost ended, deaths felt like nothing new. The fanservice pretty much dies as the Nyu-persona actually learned how to talk and remember some common sense to begin with, so you wouldn't have really seen as much from the late-middle plot. If I was to use another anime as an example of having both ecchi (I daresay borderline hentai) and graphic violence, Gantz would be the epitome of it. Basically, the wanton nudity and sex scenes as well as the blood and gore is even more ridiculous than Elfen Lied.

I can't really elaborate much on ecchi comedy series, as I haven't really took keen interest on any to begin with. It's just that the formula of 'new deadly virus -> people infected -> swarms of zombies -> people struggle to survive' isn't that appealling anymore to me. But then, the amount of blood and action are pretty satisfactory, so I'm not complaining too much other than that.

Fanservice works fine on genres such as drama, romance and comedy, but for action, tragedy, mystery or horror, it just doesn't suit to my tastes. Even then, I'm not really into the genre ecchi itself, so I prefer not having any fanservice to begin with. Well, that's just my opnion.
