Kore wa Zombie desu ka? Of the Dead episode 2: Climbing the mountain of life
This episode wasn’t as funny as the first one, but it still had its beautiful moments
Ayumu is definitively the unluckiest or luckiest man on earth, depending on your point of view. He flashed an entire school and he is now world-famous as a cross-dressing hentai pervert. But now he is not even looked at a disgusting pervert, instead everyone fell in love with him because of the mischievous Sarasvati and he needs to spend his quiet days signing autographs.
This show has always been about how ridiculous things can become and this was indeed unexpected. But I was half expecting things to become kind of stable once again for Ayumu, it seems like no matter how fabulous he can become, he always end up being accepted by everyone, he is just that cool of a zombie.
I watch Kore wa Zombie desu ka? for how weird and funny it can be, not really for the harem or the romance in it, so I was not really super thrilled with the cute little scene involving Yuki and Ayumu, but I can understand how some people are just suckers for those kind of cheesy scenes. But I would rather see Ayumu fight half-naked and see male panty shots during half the show than see some romancy story between the characters. I don’t hate romance, but I don’t like it all that much in this kind of show.
I was glad we were able to see the drunken fairy of the school once again this episode, but I am still wondering what her role will be in this season, I’m confident that she will have some greater purpose at a certain point in the future, there is no way she only exist to be Ayumu’s confident and to puke rainbows. I’m sure at some point she will be revealed to be a super powerful fairy that is some kind of half-deities in term of power, it wouldn’t even surprise me at this point.
In a more story oriented note, it seems that Kyoko is still in Ariel’s care and she still refuses to give in, but I have no idea what this will mean for the future, after all Kyoko was never the real true menace last season, she was more of a tool than anything else. I wonder what she will bring to this season, she was an amazing character after all, I’m sure we will be able to see our fair share of epicness this season too, but I fear that we won’t be able to see those until another few weeks unfortunately, meanwhile we’ll have to do with some silly episode like this one, not that the episode was bad, but there are some much better that are to come I can smell it already !
