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?
The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!
"TMoHS" and "Kore wa Zombie desu ka?" have various things in common.
The humor is somewhat the same(hilarious). Some characters really look like each other. There are supernatural powers involved ^_^
If you liked the one, I'm pretty sure you'll like the other one too.
Note: Kore wa Zombie desu ka? may be a bit more 'inappropiate' xD but it isn't too extreme xp
The main reason for this is how similar the characters are. There's the bossy Haruna/Haruhi, the quiet Yuuki/Yuu, and the straight-man Kon/Ayumu. Both animes also mash together several genres and combine them with a bit of comedy and a bit of ecchi (Zombie a bit more than Melancholy). If you like one, you'll probably like the other.
Three years after an accident that nearly left him for dead, Tomoharu Natsume is about to start his high school life. Though with a ghost named Misao following him around, Tomoharu is far from being an average teenager. One day a strange woman appears and gives him a trunk that contains a tremendous power. This power is known as an Asura Machina - a being that draws its strength from a human sacrifice - and the sacrifice within Tomoharu's Asura is none other than Misao. As the bearer of such a power, Tomoharu immediately becomes the target of various groups, including the Divine Guards, who want his power for their own. When Tomoharu befriends a demon called Kanade and she is captured by the Divine Guards, he joins the Dark Society in order to save her. Now, Tomoharu will have to fight alongside the Dark Society while he tries to find a way to save Misao and bring her back to life.
Fumizuki Academy is divided into classes ranked based purely on ability; Class A has laptops, reclining seats and ultimate comfort whereas Class F has to settle for a rundown classroom with rotten cushions and rickety coffee tables. Akihisa Yoshii has recently taken the placement exam and finds himself relegated to the lowly Class F along with many of his friends, and they’re far from impressed with their draughty facilities. Luckily, not all is lost as at Fumizuki, classes can declare war on each other to swap rooms by fighting with summoned characters whose strength is based on the users' test scores. As they dream of escaping their decrepit circumstances, the ‘idiotic’ students of Class F will try whatever they can to reach the dizzy heights of Class A’s luxury, even if it means taking on the entire school in an all-out summoning war!
When I began watching Kore wa Zombie desu ka? the first thing that came to mind was "This is like Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, only more violent." And it is. The two use very similar character types, and even more similar styles of humor. Kore wa Zombie desu ka? is, like I said, more violent, and also more ecchi, but otherwise, if you liked one of them, I'm pretty sure you'd like the other.
Koyomi Araragi is an aloof boy who holds a strange, supernatural secret which inadvertently leads him to others with similar stories. Gods, spirits and afflictions can be pesky things, taking important memories or causing unusual tendencies – a fact that Koyomi and others are unfortunately aware of. Using the help of an eccentric homeless man, Koyomi is able to help new friends he meets along the way with their own paranormal conundrums…
Bakemonogatari is much more serious then Kore wa Zombie, which in turn is much more based around humour, but the two similar-atmosphere shows with a not-so-easily-damagable protagonist are both guaranteed good watches.
Staz isn’t what you’d call a traditional vampire. He’s fascinated by human culture - especially anime, manga and video games - and unlike his brethren, he has no interest in sucking people dry. As a prominent street boss in the demon world, Staz has never desired to go to to the human world. But when a human girl accidentally wanders into his territory, is eaten by a carnivorous plant and comes back as a ghost, Staz makes a life-changing decision: he’ll help resurrect this lovely lady any way he can, even if it means heading to Earth! But the path won’t be easy, what with having no idea how to complete the task and his own laziness standing in the way.
Dark and violent yet funny humor go both ways in both of these shows. The main characters are somewhat similar. And the show is set up where there are a lot of inhuman beings revolving the main characters and whatever thier main goals are. Both main characters have this aloofness about them that really piss off their antagonists and when the time comes they are extremely strong when they need to be, but that doesn't mean that they dont take a beating. Kore Wa Zombie Desu ka? has a lot more ecchi than Blood Lad, but the innuendos and sexy outfits on female characters dont put it too much behind the other show. If you've liked one you'll like the other they are both filled with action, random-ness and comedy to give you a lot more than a few laughs.
