by putting a Zombie in the title, i assumed i would be watching an anime like Highschool of the Dead (2011), with ugly, drooling corpses, dragging their legs chasing after the main characters. but after watching its first episode, i was simply impressed with the absurdity of this series n how perfectly these ridiculous ideas were put together! at first glance, the anime seemed like any typical Harem (ハーレム) anime, but the fact is, no one is interested in Ayumu! though being immortal has its advantage, he was most of the time being cut into half or sliced open by these girls that he fought alongside. it was not a surprise to know that this anime was rated to be one of the favorites for the season, for it managed to have a zombie themed anime looked so much more alive n completely out of our expectancy!
