Is This a Zombie

on 9/23/2013

Ayumu is a high school student, a zombie, and a chain saw wielding magical girl. Oh yeah, he's also a guy. He was resurrected by a necromancer after being murdered by a serial killer. Now he lives with 3 girls. The mute Necromancer who saved him, a Magical Girl, and a Vampire Ninja chick. His life is pretty crazy. Now he kills demons, goes to school, and hunts for the person that murdered him. This anime is one of the most off-the-wall shows I've seen since Excel Saga. The story is way crazy. The production quality is great. The voice actors, animation, and soundtrack are all very well done. The characters are really cool, funny and very memorable. Is This A Zombie ? also covers a wide range of genres. It has action, comedy, drama, harem, and romance. There is a lot of fanservice and some moderately strong language, so it's not for younger viewers. I'd say 14 and up. I really enjoyed it quite a lot. I would give it 5 stars, but I don't think I can b/c it's so crazy and not serious at all. I do think that fans of shows like Rosario Vampire, Heaven's Lost Property, or Saber Marionette J will get a kick out of it.

Is this a Zombie

The Japanese version of this if you don't mind subtitles is sooooo much better and soooo hilarious. Eu is supposed to sound like a little Loli girl in his fantasy now she sounds like a stripper looking for tips in the dub, They changed Haruna into more of an annoying little kid instead of the borderline Tsundere she is in the anime. While Seraphim is still a Tsudere who vocabulary usage has been changed completely and hearing maggot every 5 seconds when she first appeared was enough for me to shut it off and go back to the Japanese Version I own both seasons for. On a good note though the box looks nice >.>. The voices they chose for this anime were horrible (Though Ayumu I didn't mind so much) Just like they do with most dubs case in point the version of Future Diary they came out with and botched all to hell. There are very few dubs they do that I actually like and will give them credit for them but this is just another bad dub in the long list of their bad dubs. I wish they would stop screwing with the anime stick to the story and characters that they base it off of (Japanese Counterpart) and find voices that actually fit the characters that are being voiceovered. Probably most of you will disagree with me but I bid you this challenge for those that don't know any better. If you don't mind subs compare the two and go watch the Japanese Version compared to this one and by the end of it you'll see two completely different character sets. The Japanese version is just better in my opinion and holds a hell of lot more emotion than this horrid monster of a dub they created. I just want them to take their time in casting and not change the story or characters is that so much to ask?
