Ever seen a zombie movie? Yes? Good, this will be similar to those. No? Well, then let me explain.
Story: This was your standard, zombie apocalypse anime. It starts off somewhat mundane, you'r average school life anime, for all of about 10 seconds. Then, all hell breaks loose as zombies pretty much spawn out of nowhere. The stroy then follows the protagonists as they attempt to find safety from the horde. It's done with enough action to keep you entertained, and with enough drama to keep the characters interesting.
Animation; Apart from the fact that most of the female cast comes pre-oiled for your viewing pleasure, the animation is stunning. Detailed backgrounds, intricate details on the characters, and even the zombies look great.
Sound: Ever wonder what a skull sounds like when it meets a broom handle? Well, you'll know after three episodes. The music score is upbeat and with enough dark undertone to match the story.
Characters: This has the blend needed for a good apocalypse team. The brainiac smart-ass, the ditsy eye candy, the skilled nerd, the battle-happy beauties, and the guy who serves as their leader. And while much of the appeal comes from watching the girls' bounce around, they are given backstories and dynamic personalities.
Overall: This was a bloody good time, emphasis on the word bloody.
