Highschool of the Dead

Dec 29, 2011

Well this was unexpected.

From the start it looked like I was to be getting a fairly played straight teenage action anime, soon however…it became clear there were cracks in this veneer. It started with the silly fat guy sidekick, fair enough, but then the school nurse showed up and…oh deer.

Don’t get me wrong. This anime is certainly worth a watch, quite a fun little show- and I say that as someone who normally isn’t into such firmly teenage boy anime. It does occasionally treat the Night of the Living Dead sort of verse in a interesting way.


But….why oh why is there so much echi? It just ruins a perfectly good show to have all these gratuitous boob shots and similar stuff about the place. Ahh Japan, so puritanical in some ways yet in others….
