Kore wa Zombie desu ka? – Ep02Posted: January 18, 2011
The second episode of Kore wa Zombie desu ka? does not keep the same high tempo as the first one, but that doesn’t mean it’s not good. Seraphim (Sera) the vampire ninja enters the story. I mean, vampire plus ninja can’t be anything but awesome. After a fight with Ayumu she starts living together with him and the other girls, thus making the series tread into harem territory. Doesn’t really follow the standard pattern though, with the girls using, and abusing, Ayumu more than lusting for him.
A bit of tension appears when Haruna overuses the word ‘die’, something Yuu doesn’t appreciate. I want to know more about Yuu, seems like she might have an interesting backstory.
We also get to see how Ayumu and Yuu met. I’ll just say that it involved breakdance, you’ll have to watch the episode to figure out what the significance of that is.
Yuu is my favourite character so far, but Haruna is showing some tsundere tendencies (yay!) and Sera hasn’t done all that much yet, so it’s not set in stone. Looking forward to the next episode.
I’ll finish up with a note on the way Sera talks. She is polite in that she uses です and ます, with some rare cases of humble language and rarely used honorifics. However, she speaks very aggressively, making the politeness nothing more than a thin paper screen in front of her real opinons and emotions.
