Spotlight Review


Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?
Not every zombie is the monstrous, brain-eating type.

One night while walking home from the convenience store, regular high school boy Ayumu Aikawa is killed by a serial killer, and is just as suddenly brought back to life by a necromancer named Eucliwood Hellscythe. One small caveat: he's now a zombie. Things get even weirder for him when he accidentally steals a magical girl's uniform, and thus her powers! Haruna, the ex-magical girl, orders him to fight evil creatures known as Megalo in her place until they can figure out a way to get her powers back to her.

It seems that life is just going to get stranger and stranger for poor Ayumu from here on out in Kore wa Zombie desu ka?.

My review!!!

The Anime can be watched on FUNimation 

Here is the summery that they provide...


Some guys have no luck; he’s got no pulse. That’s life for poor unfortunate, undead Ayumu. First, he was murdered by a serial killer. Total bummer. Then he was resurrected as a zombie by a cute little Necromancer. That seemed pretty cool until she moved into his house, refused to speak, and forced his rotting carcass to do all the cooking. After that, a magical girl in a pretty pink dress used her matching chainsaw to chop his corpse in half. Luckily, the Necromancer’s powers of resurrection trumped those of the chainsaw chick, so instead of dying (again), Ayumu became the world’s first magical girl zombie. There’s also a voluptuous vampire ninja who thinks zombie boy’s a pervert – and a hideous crayfish demon who wants to devour him. Confused? All you gotta know is this: zombies, frilly dresses, demons, and moe chainsaws. Pink. It’s the new dead.

The first thing I thought of when I read the descriptions was "Wait... he is a guy so how is he a magical GIRL???" Which was followed up with "What the heck is a 'moe chainsaw' and how the heck is pink the new 'dead'???" So then I start watching the show....

Let's just say that the questions didn't stop there!

In just the first episode Ayumu goes from normal high school kid to zombie and finally to Magical garment girl.... Oh and school pervert who can manage to kick some demon ass...  Ya I know that doesn't exactly make much sense but that about sums that episode up!

However from that point to the 5th episode I'm not really going to give anything away.... Not completely that is... From what I have see Ayumu meets a LOT of magical beings... At least one demon an episode and 3 "people" so far...  I'm unsure about the fourth since she is fighting him and the necromancer at the end of the 5th episode.

Yup... Those three!

At first it seems like the only plot to the story is too see how much he can be humiliated... Then it turns into finding his killer... At some point there seems to by a mystery... And somehow young Ayumu keeps gaining women to his household... For a boy with no luck he sure is lucky...

He does have this bad luck of being seen as a pervert by all the girls he befriends though... So maybe that is why he is considered unlucky... Or it could be the fact that he is dead... Although I'm not sure that is really that bad in this anime. Oh and what is up with the vampire not being affected by sun but the zombie is??? Anyhow... That seems to be just how it is in this one!

And on that odd note we should now rate this one...

On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Watch" rating I give this...
This one is totally full of plot abnormalities from what I've seen so far... Boys that can play the part of magical girls, zombies who can die from sun, and let's not forget the fact that there are vampires who aren't affected by sun. It's a crazy mixed up mess.... And somehow they manage to throw in humor too!

I know it sounds like I should be putting this up at 10 but I am not sure why I feel like there is something missing. On that note I'm going to end the review... Check out the anime and let me know if you feel the same way as me or if you think I've lost my marbles!

As always... Thanx for reading my review!
Have an animated day!
