So, thanks to a recommendation from one of my friends, I decided to check out this new anime called High School of the Dead. What is it about? Well basically, it’s about high school… and … zombies. Think Left 4 Dead, but at a school.
It’s a poppin’ lockin’ battle, yo.
Oops, this is actually a picture of me at the office.
Before I get into anything else, let’s meet some of our characters.
Takashi — He’s likely the main character in the series.
Rei — Probably another main character.
Hisashi (The student, not the zombie, u fool!)– Main character… for now.
Takagi — She might not be one of the main characters per se, but she’ll probably have an active role in the series as a supporting character. Hopefully she doesn’t die in the next episode.
So anyways, I won’t get into too much info just yet (because you should really just watch the show) but firstly, I want you to know that there’s a shit load of fan service in this anime. And if you don’t know what that is, you’re about to find out.
And so, without further ado, I’d like to dedicate the first review of the first episode of High School of the Dead to…….. fan service! Count with me now!
three (sneaky bastard)
nine (Whatever babe, you know you want it.)
ten (Thank you, wind.)
twelve (because of the bounce)
fifteen (bounce bounce)
sixteen (nice sleepy-time pillows)
twenty (bounce bounce bounce)
twenty one (bounce bounce bounce bounce)
twenty two (Thank you again, wind.)
So… that’s twenty-two shots of fan service in one episode. In a 24-minute episode… without the opening and ending credits… that’s basically, 22 minutes. So, basically we’ve got a rate of one fan service per minute. You understand the implications of this!? OVER 9000!!!!
In future reviews, I’ll probably just pick the best fan service shot in the episode. For now, you best have a clear clear understanding of how much you’ll be getting if you start watching this anime.
After all this, in case you were wondering, yes it’s actually a GOOD show. The animation quality is top-notch, backgrounds are very nicely textured with well-blended 3d elements, and the directing is creative and dynamic.
So, that’s it for now. Hope you’ve enjoyed this preview of High School of the Dead. See you in the next episode. *HUGS!* (no homo)
