Ayumu was murdered by a serial killer – at least, he was. For after the mysterious Eucliwood Hellscythe revives him, he changes from a human to a zombie, much to his dismay. Now, in addition to being unable to die, the boy must see to the whims of his supernatural, silent companion – but things continue to get worse from there. As once Ayumu accidentally steals a magical girl named Haruna's powers, he is tasked with the embarrassing, obnoxious task of being a magical girl – err, boy – in her stead! Then with the addition of a hostile vampire ninja to his household, can Ayumu manage to maintain his new home life, fight against attacking monsters, and track down the person who killed him all while attempting to keep what little dignity he has left in tact?
Angels are genteel and graceful messengers from Heaven, right? Wrong! Sakura Kusakabe will create an invention that inadvertently ruins the future for womankind and thus, angels from the future have arrived to do the only reasonable thing: assassinate him! Fortunately for Sakura, one of them, Dokuro-chan, takes a liking to him but her intentions to protect him prove downright lethal. When Sakura’s not dodging her spiked bat Excalibolg, he’s fighting for his life on river escapades. And when he’s not quick enough, Dokuro-chan’s catchy incantation brings him back to life! Bludgeoning and blood splatters aside, can Dokuro-chan save the one she loves without damaging the future?
Hilarious violence and gore, glorious randomness and an overall fun/ridiculous feel? Totally check out these two titles. ^_^
The comparison immediately came to mind; and I wasn't even done with the first episode of KoreZombie. Both are a careful mixture of gore, comedy, and ecchi that really keep everything flowing smoothly. There's something about this trifecta of genres that is really entertaining.
I came into Kore wa Zombie expecting one thing, and was surprised to find an incredible similarity to Dokuro-chan. Both feature a very random sense of humor and a main character that is humiliated, maimed, or even killed at every available opportunity.Though Zombie has some Magical Girl thrown in, the series are still similar enough to warrant a recommendation.
Both series have wierd humor and gore, though dokuro chan has more gore and Kore wa zombie desuka has more randomness. So if you liked the gore jokes or randomness in either shows, you would like the other.
Okay so besides the fact that both main characters in each series tend to suffer an ungodly amount of punishment from friend and foe alike. Both series also share a very similar style of humor with a nice blend of violence and ecchi that keep both series entertaining throughout. If you liked one then I'm sure you'll like the other.
i think you will like these because they are extremly comical and the protaganist dies in some wierd way... well i guess he dosent die exactly... but you get the meaning. enjoy!
Violent abuse is funny when it's female on male, and it's no different for either of these series. Both have a main male protagonist who suffers pain that would (And does) kill an ordinary human and does it in such a manner that it's entertaining, be it verbal or physical. It adds up to a black comedy and loads of humor overall.
Also helps that they have a nice dose of fan-service and perversion that leads to comedic pain.
Both shows have a similar level of absurdity and are brilliant examples of parodying done right. If you enjoyed the humor of one, you will almost definately enjoy the other.
Hilarious Gore, Ecchi and comedy scenes also both MC's can't die except that Dokuro revives Sakura and Eucliwood repairs Ayumu.
Definitely worth checking out
You'd think being unable to die would have it's perks, right? Not when it means constant severe physical abuse including dismemberment, being beaten to a bloody pulp by a spiky bat and the embaressment of being forced to be a mahou shojo, complete with the girly costume. These are the lives of Sakura and Ayumu, the respective main characters. Both hilarious shows but while Dokuro-chan has only blood and echi Kore wa Zombie has more of a variety of humor and a better storyline.
Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?
I'm not fully sure why, but these totally remind me of each other. Sure, Angel Beats doesn't have anything to do with magical girls and it's less spazzy, but both are downright fun, have hilarious random violence (including maimings and death, sometimes downright gory), a perpetually pissed off (or at least, very assertive) leading lady, etc. I think if you enjoyed the overall ride of one, you should try out the other.
Both involve main characters who are unable to die, but often randomly get maimed to the point where they would die, for no other reason than random comedy. Angel Beats!is a little more story and a little less humor (not by much) than Kore wa Zombie though. Both of the aforementioned main characters are also 'brought back to life' in a sense as well, with some sort of back story as to how they died.
Enjoy watching protagonist and cast die in bizarre, ridiculous and hilarious ways? These two shows provide some great death-related laughs as well as just some straight up crazy humor.
Maybe it's the fact that in both series the main character can get killed and then a short time later come back as if nothing happened. Then again it could very well be the hilarious violence or the great cast of characters that both series have or even the way to both series make death into something rather funny. If you liked one then you might like the other one as well.
Angel Beats and Kore wa Zombie offer an intriguing fictional world where characters are forced into unfamiliar situations. Do not be fooled, both shows offer an immense dose of humor and hilarious skits. While Angel Beats seems to have a better grasp on running humor, Kore wa Zombie definitely has a good grasp on being able to mock other genres.
Angel Beats! and Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? are both intriguing, funny, original shows that you will not regret watching. The two also get serious and dramatic at times, though to different degrees, and are quite entertaining in that violence is used for humour the majority of the time.
Both of these shows mix violent comedy with at times dark supernatural drama. Zombie is heavier on the comedy and at times aims for over-the-top parodies of anime tropes, while overall Angel Beats! takes itself a little more seriously and has less of a harem romance, but they still feel pretty similar in terms of their setting and sense of humor. Angel is also somewhat similar to Eucliwood as a character. Definitely give one a try if you enjoyed the other!
If you've watched Angel Beats! or Kore wa Zombie desu ka? I can almost garuntee you'll like the other due to similar Humor. Both main characters have an uncanny sense of justice and are killed many times over in almost every episode. More so, they both contain light hearted romance theme.
So if you're looking for another bundle of laughs, I would recommend this to you!
Hilarious! Otonashi and Ayumu are both average guys that have now become undead average guys. Now they're both about to become apart of an insane supernatural world, whether they want to or not. Both shows are filled with great characters and hilarious situations, if you liked one you'll more than likely enjoy the other.
Chihiro is a macabre-loving high school student who collects horror films and thinks shacking up with a zombie chick would be hot. But though the idea of death is alluring, when faced with the actual death of his beloved pet cat, the teen buckles under the grief, and becomes determined to bring his deceased companion back to life. Every night, he sneaks off to an abandoned building and attempts to brew a resurrection potion, and it's here that he meets Rea, the beautiful daughter of the well-to-do Sanka family. However, the girl is having some troubles of her own, and after a mix-up ends up zombified herself! Now the horror fanatic is living the dream with his very own zombie girlfriend, but how will the pair deal with Rea's new diet and the onset of rigor mortis?
Both shows are romantic comedies dealing with zombies. These two shows also have a non-tradtional type of zombie. Because of this, the main character gets into many humorous situations.
Deals with Zombies, but different situations. One is a comedy which only gets serious at the end and the other is a boy and a girl falling in love. That simple even though she is a zombie.
Both of them involve untraditional zombies and hilarious situations. Either way, the protagonist in both animes gets to face the blunt force of zombification, whether it is being a zombie (Kore wa Zombie desu ka) or taking care of one (Sankarea).
Both of these animes take on a non-traditional view of of zombies. Which allows the zombies to keep their human sides, allowing for comedic relief from the "plots". They also feature just a little (okay, more than a little) fanservice. The main guy has the typical, perverted best friend, and the rest of his companions seem to be girls. The similarities continue, so why not give both a try?
No anime really comes real close to being similar to Kore wa Zombie dsu ka? but if I had to choose I'd pick Sankarea. I say this because they both explore a very none traditional zombie nature that is not seen in most other series. That is to say that they are not just braindead maneaters. So both of these series share that special trait that is suprisingly hard to find. Anyway if you are fan of zombies and are tired of the same old stereotypical zombies then you should check these two anime out and if you liked one of these for that reason be sure to check the other one out as well.
in both anime the zombies are very coherent although i would have to say that sankarea is way more dramatic. Both are entertaining and funny.
Shido Itsuka was born in a world where widespread catastrophes of varying size called spacequakes can happen anytime and anywhere, razing everything in the vicinity. When his city's alarm forewarns one impending, the teenager races to his sister Kotori in an attempt to rescue her. But upon his arrival, the spacequake transpires in that very spot, and standing in the middle of the destruction is a beautiful sword-wielding girl. Soon after, he learns she is one of many beings called "Spirits" who cause the disasters, and charming those like her is the solution to preventing them. Effective immediately, Shido must date Spirits and make them fall in love with him, because if he cannot, mankind's destruction may very well be inevitable.
The main protagonist is dealing with a couple of girls with supernatural powers in both series. If you like one of them you will most likely like the other one also.
Kore wa zombie desu ka? Is basically a parody of the genre of anime that Date a Live is part of.It is a rather highly rated parody of the supernatural Harem genre. Both series of course sport a varied cast of supernatural girls with rather peculiar but popular personality times. If you liked Date a Live and want to see a parody of it's genre, look Kore wa zombie desu ka? up. If you want to know what type of anime Kore wa zombies desu ka? parodies there's hardly a better example.
Guys surrounded by beautiful girls who are thrown in over their heads and forced to adapt to wacky lifechanges; hijinks ensue. From Date A Live and alien girls causing trouble and wrecking stuff to Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka and it's own girls wrecking Ayumu, the girls become orbiting planets to the guy's sun and play off him for comedy. Neither one shy away from action, containing plenty of flare and fanservice and both actually play around with the ecchi genre, taking an unconventional path when they could have gone with the tried and true.
A relatively normal guy surround by a harem of powerful, supernatural girls is the main element of both shows. The main difference is that Kore was Zombie desu ka? is a parody of the supernatural harem genre, and Date A Live is a pretty perfect example of what exactly it's trying to parody. So if you enjoy Date A Live and want to see a parody of the genre then look no further. And if you enjoyed Kore wa Zombie desu ka? and want to see a non-parody version, Date A Live should fit the bill.
Both shows are harem shows, and have girls with supernatural powers in them. Both shows have a combination of ecchi, comedy, action and a little bit of romance. Also Kore wa Zombie desu ka? is an show that is parodying supernatural harem shows, whilst Date a Live is a show that is a supernatural comedy.
When the infected approached Rei and Takashi's school, it led to a gruesome blood bath that left the majority of students and staff dead or turned into the zombie-like monsters that have spread throughout the world. Together with a handful of other survivors, Rei and Takashi set forth to find their families in a world that is rapidly detoriating. Governments have collapsed, the killer disease is out of control, and people everywhere are trying their best to simply live through each day...
Both Kore was Zombie desu ka? and High School of the Dead pack in an insane amount of hilarity, the supernatural and ecchi. HotD is a bit darker but they both have the same humor, using a group of eclectic people battling against dark forces.
they both are are hilarious and have some really good action HOTD might have a little more violence but if you lik one you will like the other.
They are both action-ecchi fests with a thin veneer of plot. HSOTD does this much better than KWZDK however.
Zombies? (Well, if you can call Ayumu a zombie, sure) Boobs? Both have that in spades. Along with that, both animes have a very dark sense of humor.
