Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? OF THE DEAD – 06

「ちゃうねん、勝てててん」 (Chaunen, Kateteten)
“Hell No, I Shoulda Won”

Plot plot plot! Okay, sort of. We’re getting some tastes of plot, and stronger ones at that, but there was still a healthy amount of faffing about in this episode. I’m fine with it though, because we got just enough plot to make it look like the story is going to move along, and most of the silly stuff was either slightly plot-like, or fell under the umbrella of “character development.” These centered around three ladies – Taeko, Yukinori, and Yousei-san.Ohandalso, the episode was funny, so there’s that!

First up, Taeko. Taeko is emblematic of how Ayumu’s life has actually been going pretty well. Despite everyone thinking he’s a crossdressing pervert (so judgemental, these Japanese youths!), Taeko rightly noted that he has become more assertive than he used to be. Somehow, he actually got a bit of character development during his whole ordeal…which is why I was sad when he just wished it all away. Come on man, they were all fine with it, and you were a celebrity! Just roll with it. Fortunately, Gaia wouldn’t let that one stand. You will never escaping the crossdressing, Ayumu!

Still, the best part about Taeko in this episode was definitely the atomic-grade levels of cuteness she was dishing out. Never before has a huge creepy worm thing been part of such a cute picture. Oh, and yes Ayumu, she still thinks that your legs are pretty. Deal with it.

Next is Yukinori. This was definitely one of the most contrived ways I’ve seen to get a male character to slap a ring on a girl, but I’m not going to lie, I didn’t mind. That’s my biased shipper brain talking though, becuse I was squealing in delight like a 12-year-old schoolgirl in a Leonardo DiCaprio movie (do women still like him? I don’t know these things), but give me this one thing! Seeing her laughing giddily about the ring was almost too cute to handle. This one was more plot than character development (that was what the Taeko bits were about), but we still got a little of that here, with her showing just how devoted she is to Ayumu. Wonderful.

Finally, there’s Yousei-san. Actually, it wasn’t just her, but Dai-sensei and Haruna that helped with the most ploty parts of this episode. Yousei-san’s random serious speech in the middle of the episode was intriguing to say the least, as it abruptly yanked me out of drawing comparisons to Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko (I wonder if Ayumu keeps track of seishun points too…) and demanded that I pay attention. She sounded so jaded, like she had some post traumatic stress syndrome thing going on.

Of course, Dai-sensei’s restoration of Mystletainn is what got everything really moving again, and brought the megalo back to town…perhaps. At this point, I have no idea why Haruna’s head started hurting after the battle, nor why Yousei-san looked on impassively, but the latter definitely had some menace to it. I’m not sure I quite think she’s an antagonist…but, well, hopefully we’ll see soon!

tl;dr: @StiltsOutLoud – This ep had Taeko blushing, Yukinori w/ a ring, Dai-sensei bathing, & bunny girl Yuu & Sera. WOO!! Also, Ayumu probably did stuff #korezon

Random thoughts:

  • I have no idea who this guy is, but he spews more blood than a gender-swapped pervert trapped in a girls locker room.
  • I love B couples, so it’s no surprise I’m all for Orito x Mihara. The tall ones are awesome, Orito. Go for it! Also, him just having to check whether she was going nobra – and her answering him honestly after only a little tsun – was very telling. D’awww!
  • Where do you think you’re looking?” she says. Where do you think he’s looking? At your Big (Enough) Bangs, Hur hur hur.
  • Apparently, Haruna and Yukinori are bad at anything musical. I might have thought it was too abrupt the first time they used this joke, but now we’ve got a proper brick joke going, and I definitely laughed. Also, it led to this scene, so WOOO!
  • I continue to enjoy Anderson-kun’s randomly good english, and Mystletainn’s “I’ll be back!” A Terminator reference, in anime? What’s next, an anime with Men In Black? Oh shi-!

Stilts note: I’m going to be out of town for two weeks on business, starting tomorrow . This should have no effect on my posting schedule…though the key word there is “should.” Just know that delays are more of a possibility than normal, and if there aren’t any, then I am even more of a badass than we all thought. And modest, and handsome, etcetera etcetera. I think we’ve been over this before.

    Plot tastes good. But it’s a delicacy so I don’t have it EVERY night.

    The music gag with Haruna an Yukinori was godly. *Curse Dances*

    • May 11, 2012 at 5:34 amExukvera

      How on Earth Haruna and Yukinori think they can make a hit with some music that not even they can bear to hear?

      Maybe she wears an extremely restrictive sports bra?

    • May 11, 2012 at 12:16 amStilts

      She’s a vampire ninja who fights pervert demon-creatures with ramen, and that’s what you’re worried about? *facepalm*

      (I kid, I kid ^^)

    • May 11, 2012 at 8:20 amChurnedRainbow

      I don’t think that’s due to the animation’s inconsistency. Moreso that in the second picture she is supposed to have a surprised look, so the eyes would open up more….

      We are talking about her pupils, right? /badjoke

  • May 10, 2012 at 9:39 pmShouhei

    Yuu moe overload!
    I’ll be back!

  • May 10, 2012 at 10:02 pmShuin_Zwei

    does anyone know the title of Haruna and tomo’s dance? I want that curse dance :D

  • May 10, 2012 at 10:12 pmYanDaMan

    Its funny because if Ayumu didnt wish for everyones memory of his crossdressing to be erased, everyone would’ve probably cheered and enjoyed his crossdressing in a dress instead of laughing at him the next day lol.

  • May 10, 2012 at 10:37 pmZen

    Well, I guess that’s one way to keep your running joke from getting old- blow it up to outrageous proportions so that it resists novelty decay… (i.e. Ayumu’s craaazy crossdressing; this show just takes things to a whole new level…glad to say that it’s (the crossdressing) still funny after two and a half seasons…XP)

  • May 10, 2012 at 10:42 pmSpace Dreamer

    yeah, I don’t see the appeal of crossdressing, going as far as giving a panty shot and actually wear said garments.


  • May 10, 2012 at 10:45 pmNeo

    This episode was very sweet and funny.


    Damn it. I forgot that doctor tell me not to review this episode.

  • May 10, 2012 at 10:48 pmbertman4

    Finally some plot! The appearance of the Baron! More Miss Fairy! Totally forgot about Mael Strom’s weapon. There’s some pretty crazy stuff going on. And Ayumu is still popular cross dressing. More! More! More!

      You forgot “Thats not a kick!!!” joke.

    • May 12, 2012 at 10:35 amShadow74

      I can be satisfied in this episode with Taeko and Yuki, and also by bunny-Sera, but I want more of Seraphim in right-side, pyon. XD
      P.S. Sarasvati also want more, much more

      • May 12, 2012 at 10:39 amShadow74

        instead of “right-side” is “dere-side”, I escaped the correction

  • May 10, 2012 at 11:54 pmThe_Magus_Killer


    That character in the lab coat who coughs up blood. I think he’s an expy of Noriyasu Seta from Akamatsu Ken-sensei’s “Love Hina”

    Seta always had blood on him during his first few meetings with his protege Keitaro Urashima, the one thing separating Seta and KoreWaZom’s lab-coat guy is that the guy has a different hairdo

    • May 11, 2012 at 12:20 amStilts

      Also, a lot more blood. That and he’s not nearly as cool as Seta-yan. Few are, though.

    • May 11, 2012 at 9:51 pmcancerlad

      I thought he seemed familiar, but I couldn’t place him. Thanks for clearing that up.

    • May 13, 2012 at 8:00 amItachizame

      To me he kinda looks like Kaji from Evangelion. ^_^

    Tomonori Why are you so adorable!?!?!?!

    • May 12, 2012 at 10:49 amShadow74

      She hurt the heart but I can not live without it.
      “So much beauty that I mourn,” XD, who knows it?

    This is probably the unpopular opinion but I find Tomonori throwing herself all over Ayumu to be extremely annoying.

    • May 12, 2012 at 1:41 amAnonymous

      I’m all for AyumuxYuu, yet I still find Tomonori’s dedication to Ayumu endearing. Not annoying at all.

  • May 11, 2012 at 9:46 amTingster013

    Tomonori FTW, she beat Sera hands down!!!

  • May 11, 2012 at 2:48 pmPlayer

    Nice screenshots and summary as always. The only one missing is Sera with her cloak + bunny girl outfit (from the front).

  • May 11, 2012 at 5:42 pmForogt

    I suspect the wedding dress was decided back when everyone still remembered his crossdressing. He failed when he he didn’t consider that there would remain some residual fallout already in motion before he memory wipped everyone..

  • May 11, 2012 at 7:42 pmSeishun Otoko @ Seishunmaru

    Looks like Korezom got its groove back. This episode was hilarious and Tomonori is so HNNNNNGGGGGGGG
    Yousei-tan can’t be evil. Lolis are made of sugar, spice and everything nice so she must be good right? D:

  • May 11, 2012 at 11:29 pmNymphetamine2791

    Who is Yousei really? :O

      As I said to Stilts on twitter:

      Right now @StiltsOutLoud should be bleeding from the eyes, nose and mouth over the necromancer Eu wearing a bunnygirl outfit in twintails— ˈmʌɪk(ə)l moʊzər (@cancerlad) May 10, 2012

  • May 12, 2012 at 7:51 amCarVac

    Tomonori’s giddy laughter at the end was the best part of the whole episode.

  • May 12, 2012 at 11:11 amcancerlad

    On, Stilts, I would have used this image for MIB…

  • May 12, 2012 at 2:44 pmrandom viewer

    Ayumu can never avoid his destiny,…infinte loop. Also, I did not know he can fly with Mystletainn like that. http://randomc.net/image/Kore%20wa%20Zombie%20Desu%20ka/Kore%20wa%20Zombie%20Desu%20ka%20OF%20THE%20DEAD%20-%2006%20-%20Large%2020.jpg
    I think Ayumu does want Yukinori as his bride, since out of all the other fingers he put it on her ring finger. He sure knows how to lead a girl on (ie. tease her feelings like that). It’s true they would make a good couple (that lab coat guy at least thinks so), but I also like Ayumu to be with Taeko. Youth~
    Whose skirt was that gorilla megalo looking at? lol

  • May 12, 2012 at 9:18 pmVince

    The reason I keep coming back to this anime is because of Tomonori. This show is overloaded with moe but the way she acts. Easily the favourite episode for me.
