Gakkou Gurashi! will air in the summer so that will help tide us over for a while. I'd like to see more but it all depends on what style they do it in and whether or not they make it a serious zombie survival or more like a comedy. I think it would be cool to get an anime like Shaun of The Dead.

That moment when the only zombie anime you know of isn't even about zombies.



Someone mathed out how fast her breasts would have to be going for that to work (because why wouldn't you) and supersonic doesn't do the results justice.

On a more serious note I found High School of the Dead to be an interesting study in the difference between how the Japanese view zombie survival horror and Americans. In an American Zombie movie you pretty much know from the start who's going to live and who's going to die in the main cast. People will crawl all over each other and even the hero will sacrifice others to live. In HSotD the core group does what's necessary to keep the core group alive, even if it means risking the core group to save an individual.

Attack on Titan is pretty freakin' close to a zombie anime.

Just picture the titans as average sized and that you don't need a spider-man device to kill them and there you go.

I don't think it's a lack of zombie anime, but I think a lack of conventional zombie anime. Zombies are indeed refrenced within anime, but I see shows like Sankarea, Is this a zombie?, or even something like Sunday without God where they have characters that call themselves Zombies or are similar to zombies since they are back from the dead but the shows go about it as a fantasy, comedy, or romance stories instead of a straightforward zombie apocalypse that a lot of people are used to.

I mean, it can't hurt. I myself am not too into zombies, but that doesn't stop me from wanting other people to get their fix. However, the one thing I do not want is for zombies to saturate anime like it has in Western media. Jeeze, they just get old after a while, and zombies have never been that interesting to me. Always been more of a vampire man myself (which luckily anime has plenty of).

That being said, who knows? Maybe Gakkou Gurashi will open my eyes to the genre. I'm kind of expecting it to

And if it does, maybe more zombie anime will come after it to ride its coattails.

There's even going to be a spin off series set in a different location.

As I recall, it is not only in a different location, but essentially begins as a prequel, covering the time that Rick was in a coma.



Oh wow! That should actually be kind of exciting. Seeing that time where everything is falling apart would be awesome.

Yeah I think there should be more as well, I loved High School of the Dead, yes I know it was extremely ecchi which put off a lot of people but I loved the zombie aspect. But that's just my opinion. I just love myself some survival horror

Maybe zombies could be the new vampires? But it might take a while before the vampire thing dies out. Or it might never will.

The name alone sounds pretty interesting.
