Question 1: A katana. I'd stab them in the head!
Question 2: Sure, surviving if fun, but when you actually survive, wouldn't it be lonely without the other survivors? Even if they were your loved ones? I disagree. I need my friends. I hate being alone.
Question 3: Fock yah! Luka, Kat, James, Eric, Jamie, Emmie, Tammy! 8D I wouldn't trust anyone but them. D8<
Question 4: Supplies, you may need medicine, food, anything to cure or make people feel better.
Question 5: Like, jeans, comfortable clothes! Not loud clothes to attract the zombies. Not skimpy clothing too.

Stealth. I would use a high-tech crossbow (I actually have a friend who hunts, and he has one) and go for long-range kills. It's scoped, and even has one of those fancy shmancy laser-pointer-thingies. I'd just be survivin'....

Question 2: "A zombie apocalypse is more about surviving the other survivors". would you agree with this, or not?
Oh yes, indeed I would! Only two things are infinite - The universe, and human stupidity. As Einstein said...And, since humans like to kill, they're stupid. Which means they won't stop being dicks...Kinda like me. As a dick, that is. Not a killer.

Question 3: Is there any Crunchyroll members you'd team up with if you had the chance to?
I don't really know anybody, so no.

Question 4: Which is more important: supplies, or weapons and security?
Supplies. Anything can be a weapon, anything can be made into a weapon. Shelter can be easily found, but without supplies, it's all lost.

Question 5: What sort of protection/clothing would you wear during a zombie apocalypse?
Tight biker leather. I'd look like a douche, but it would work. I may get chainmail gloves, just because...

Oh, and tip to all the weeaboos: Swords don't cut through bone very well. They also dull quickly, and will easily rust. Try hacking through somebodies neck, it would be difficult, to say the least. A better melee weapon would be a crowbar or a bat, maybe a machete. Think of it like this: Take a tree branch, at least two and a half inches thick. Now, cut it in half. While it's moving. Then repeat about sixty times...


There's a reason why swords have been used throughout history, and that is because they excel at cutting/beheading, which is exactly what u want to do to a zombie. Though swords should only be used by those with experience, to prevent dulling and rusting like you said. It also depends what kind of sword you use, Katanas, or Japanese swords in general, are easily the deadliest swords on this planet, and have no problem cutting through bone and flesh. A crowbar is good, since it would do more then kill, like open crates possibly holding supplies or open locked doors, but asides from that, in order to smash a skull, you would need to exert an excessive amount of force to kill it. Also, with a blade of any kind (except maybe knives) you could also simply wound zombies by chopping off their legs or arms to slow them down. You have no such option with a blunt weapon.

I lost. So much. Died over a dozen times, and how the hell did I get a compassion rating of A? Half the answers I chose was simple pragmatism at work. The other half was guessing.

Couldn't save my wife, too bad. Got a real downer ending.

Hah~ I can't save my wife the first time I've tried it also. But I've never manage to get a compassion rating of A before, B was the highest I have ever gotten. You must have a really nice personality!@

Well, if you didn't save your wife, I suggest you give it another chance. The rewarding ending is worth it. Well for me, the ending left me felt exhilarating. I felt so good that I saved my beloved wife. <3

That was hella fun! Thanks lol. I survived, and got the antibiotics, but I did die once. I had hidden behind the counter in the pharmacy...Derp.

Tactics: A

Compassion: B (I had no ammo, so I left the dying woman)

In all reality thought, I don't think I'd survive long in a real zombie apocalypse. I'm wimpy, and would be terrified >_>.

Yes, but you see, these swords were wielded by soldiers. Men of stamina and strength, not kids who sit down and read Crunchyroll. Plus, what would you do when your blade wore down? You can't sharpen it forever, and especially not without the proper tools or knowledge. Do you think you could repair it, or find a proper blacksmith?

Katanas may be slashing weapons, but that's generally not the best type of weapon. If you looked in the medieval days, most armor was resistant to slashing-based weapons. That's why axes, maces, and thin swords (Such as rapiers) were preferred. Cutting through bone is harder than you would think, as I had said. Or, I think I said, whichever.

Also, the skull is quite weak. The best way is to smash something into the temples, effectively silencing whatever it hit. Of course, this is only a last resort - That's why we have long ranged weaponry. And, while it may be a good idea to chop the limbs off, what next? You have to kill it somehow. Maybe not if you're on the run, but what if they break into your home, or your base? I'll admit, I've had to use a baseball bat before on animals. It's not pretty, but sometimes it has to be done. (I had to...put my cat down, in a non-eloquent way. And yes, I cried like a little bitch after.)

Also, you don't have to completely cave the skull in. The most you need to do is smash it hard enough to fracture the skull, which would most likely pierce the brain. And, one last thing - Where would you, legally, get an authentic, sharpened bladed weapon? Perhaps illegally, or in a third world country, but not in a place like Canada or the USA. I believe 8 inches is the longest a bladed weapon can be, and anything else has to be dulled, or in a more extreme case, have a flat edge. Also, while a crowbar is 10$ and easily found, a weapon such as a Katana could be anywhere from 16,000 to 40,000$. If you have a real one, that is. Anything less than 12,000$ is a fake, or a very cheaply crafted weapon.

One last last note: What if the sword is a bit dull, and gets stuck in the bone? Ripping it out wouldn't be easy, not in the slightest.

Well, my rant's over.

Well im obviously not an expert about this stuff, and like i said earlier, swords should only be used by someone with at least a basic understanding of them. Obviously in a real life situation, a sword would be hard to find, unless you raided a dojo or training ground of some sort. But at the same time, if i had to choose b/t a katana and a baseball bat, i would choose the weapon that has served Japan well for most of their recorded history, over sports equipment. But for me, that goes for ALL blades (cept for claymores/other two handed swords), so rest assured, im not some 'weeaboo' that just thinks he can be a samurai overnight. And also, yes i get your point about the cons of a sword, i just dont like the idea of using a baseball bat for a weapon. I would take OTHER blunt weapons, like if i get my hands on a mace somehow, but you have to keep in mind reach as well, which is one reason a crowbar wouldnt work well. Also, even if it doesnt take too much effort, a baseball bat has quite a bit of recovery time after one swing, unless you're a well-conditioned human being. Now, at this point im not saying the katana is superior, just saying baseball bats/blunt weapons are not always the best option. Plus for axes, unless you get a big medieval battle axe, most of them are pretty small. Something you wouldnt want for a primary melee option.

Also, it's almost guaranteed that at one point, a baseball bat will break, unless you get a metal one, which weighs a lot and takes more energy to swing. And as for axes, they can get stuck in bone too, not too mention they're for hacking, not bashing or slashing, which is pretty much 10 times less effective against zombies. And about your armor comment, not gonna deny it, cause it is true, but zombies dont wear armor...

D: I give up, your knowledge is too powerful. Wise you be, for you have soundly defeated me - Or, not. Meh.

So, I see your point now. I probably came off as a pretentious asshole (Which I am), so sorry about that >_>. I've had faaaar too many people on the internet (AND in real life) scream about how if they'd have a sword, they'd be a magical badass samurai in twelve seconds. On the axe comment, I was just talking about usage in the medieval era, not post-apocalypse. On crowbars: Haven't you played Half-Life...

Sure, a baseball bat might break, but think about it...There's enough baseball bats in the world to arm everybody a dozen times over (TRUE FACT trololo.) I guess it would depend like this...

Novice using a bladed weapon:
1. Ineffective, lack of skill
2. Needs constant maintenance
3. Needs a lot of strength to use, lacks finesse.
4. Rarity, almost no chance to repair in case of accident.
5. Blade can get caught in a wound.

Veteran using a bladed weapon:
1. Skilled, can slaughter with ease.
2. Needs constant maintenance.
3. Rarity, almost nil chance to be able to repair.
4. Blade can get caught in wound.

Anybody using a blunt weapon:
1. Strength instead of skill required.
2. Will cause anybody to quickly tire.
3. Easily found, but easily lost.


It really boils down to if you've had training in bladed weapons before. Also: The ultimate weapon: A titanium, steel-plated baseball bat. It would be light enough to use efficiently, yet perfectly strong. If Titanium wasn't such a soft metal, you could turn any bladed weapon into a mass killing weapon.

If I had to go with a bladed weapon, I'd take that Shaolin Spade thingy. I'd honestly say you won this argument, and I shall now go retreat under my bridge to lick my wounds. And prepare for the apocalypse...

Question 1: What sort of weapon would you prefer in a zombie apocalypse? What tactics do you prefer?
- Magical Grimoires. Oh and also, as my secondary weapon I would like a Dooms Day Device - World Expansion. (Lol)
Tactics? There are none. è . é

Question 2: "A zombie apocalypse is more about surviving the other survivors". would you agree with this, or not?
- True, true.

Question 3: Is there any Crunchyroll members you'd team up with if you had the chance to?
- Sorry to say, but I don't know any CR members very well as I'm new. Even if I did, I wouldn't.

Question 4: Which is more important: supplies, or weapons and security?
- Supplies. I need chocolate and tea for excellent survival probability.

Question 5: What sort of protection/clothing would you wear during a zombie apocalypse?
- PVC. 'Nuff said. 8D

I have no chance to survive a zombie apocalypse, I would get eaten on the spot. No, wait I would jump off a bridge and drown myself. Gettin' eaten by zombies would have been gross.

A gun! I don't know what kind but just a really cool gun would do! Tactics: Shoot, run out of bullets, run, reload, shoot some more!

"A zombie apocalypse is more about surviving the other survivors". would you agree with this, or not?
Yes and no. Company is good, but you know when times get really dangerous people change. I wouldn't be surprised if they abandoned you.

Is there any Crunchyroll members you'd team up with if you had the chance to?
My girlfriends, maybe!

Which is more important: supplies, or weapons and security?
Can't I just have them all? xD But supplies probably. I wouldn't want to die of hunger.

What sort of protection/clothing would you wear during a zombie apocalypse?
A black bra, short shorts and that's it. Man I'm sexy.

1. weapons any 7.62mm rifle preferably a Remington model 700 with .300 Winchester magnum ammo(not the most powerful magnum round but better accuracy) and a 12 gauge Remington model 1100 for close range. For a melee weapon a military issue entrenching tool(a shovel/spade army surplus stores have tons of these). Tactics keep my distance and always have an escape route. Only go into large population centers in emergency situations.
2. Necessary to work with others, but if they start to lose it best to kill them in their sleep. Never help anyone who appears in trouble and kill anyone armed that you don't know.
3. Only if they are close by when everything goes to hell.
4. Weapons are by far the most important thing. Without weapons you will be dead before you can use the supplies. With weapons I can always take supplies from the survivors with no weapons.
5. Anything I can get my hands on that covers me completely and can stop zombie teeth.

Its likely pretty much impossible to survive a worldwide zombie apocalypse. Head for the arctic and hope zombies don't follow.

My husband is already preparing for the zombie apocalypse, or WWIII, whichever comes first I guess (lol).
1. Weapons - AR15 with bayonet, 22 Marlin (for picking off straglers, or for hunting for small game), Shotgun for larger game and additional zombie disposal. Machete, hunting knives, pocket knives. If i had to have a melee weapon, I would love some sort of polearm, but I guess that wouldn't be very practical to lug around. But I want to keep those zombies at a distance.
2. My family would be the only ones with me - we already have a plan in place to escape into the deep unknown. We already have all our camping stuff in the truck, packed and ready to roll. We have 4 weapon and hunting specialty shops nearby our home - we would hit every one of them and stock up on propane, batteries, flashlights, lighters, matches, firewood, water containers, artillery of any sort, traps, MRE's, etc. Although, we already have plastic totes dedicated to some of our survival gear right now and it is already packed up and ready to go.
3. Probably not, no offense intended.
4. Weapons are more important - if I don't have a weapon, I am not going to make it to find any supplies. Ultimately, having both would be ideal though...
5. Any sort of practical clothing - layers and hiking gear for going into the wilderness. I am staying away from large cities and towns - zombies will head towards food supplies (sorry you city dwellers). You may run into some zombies in your country markets, but I am sure they will be fewer and more far between.

I want to take over a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere and erect a fort or moat of some type - long term plans of living and surviving of course.
Would I actually survive? Probably not. I am a good shot, but I am the type to go back inside a burning building for my cat...so yeah.
