It's not really that bad of a show if you can survive the gratuitous amount of fan service. The fan service is so over the top, in my opinion it becomes funny. It also serves as a interesting counterbalance to all the violence the permeates this type show. I give it an a-ok by me. My opinion might be biased though, seeing as I love zombies. What are your guy's thoughts.

I loved this show. I bought the dvd set after watching only 5 episodes.

The english dub isn't all that great unfortunately. They add in so many cursee words that it seems to degrade the quality as well as having an occasional lip flap mishap. The dub was done by Sentai Filmworks and the cast seems to be mostly new voice actors (as far as I know anyway). While the voices are great (I could have sworn Vic Mignogna was playing Hirano until I looked at the credits in the first episode) quality they just seem to be mismatched along with a rather annoying english script.

Couldn't make it past Episode 2. I don't mind fan service but when the ladies have HUGE...tracts of land... that move on their own with sound effects I have trouble taking the show seriously. Not sure how anyone finds that sexy, but maybe that's just me.

I did think the Zombies were well done and the 'Everything's gone to heck! Every man/women for themselves!' feel was very well done. The fight scenes were well done too, nice and gory!!

I think the english dub is one of the best dubs to date. Also, the fact that they went with mostly unknown voice actors is a refreshing change. It seems that most dubs use the same 10 voice actors/actresses.

Well there's your problem, why are you trying to take this show seriously? Watch it and laugh. Especially the boob recoil suppressor. I laughed pretty hard when I read the manga, and even harder when the anime came out.

The boob recoil thing was fudging hilarious. The only thing i didn't like was the episode that was nothing but fanservice (6?).

Yeah, it was episode 6 that they were all taking a bath together. As for the boob recoil scene, that was funny but also annoying that Takashi didn't hit anything.

Just finished the show and the ova, and I must say that I am very impressed. While there is a lot of fan service, I believe in this case it helps the anime especially for people like me who hate the typical horror and zombie genre. I can't say anything about the dub because I hate dubs, but I found everything else to be fantastic.

Additionally, does anyone know if and when there will be a season 2. The ova was a big waste of time in my opinion, I would have preferred a 16 minute rushed ending to the series rather than a generic anime beach episode (which was very funny however Very Happy )

Oh yeah i forgot there was an OVA :O I'm gonna check that out now. But yeah, love the show just wish there was less fan service- the story really does make you forget about it though. Too good not to watch.

I'm thinking the justification behind the fanservice was because they were probably trying to draw in the audience that plays Nazi Zombies and Left 4 Dead on their xbox all day, and that nature of people (especially young guys) tend to enjoy fanservice. Also, it was a nice comedic relief from UGLYZOMBIESUGLYZONBIESBLOODUGLYZOMBIES
