Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sou Desu yo? ~ Review

“A cute little series where your main characters are… guns???”

Well, what you see above you is a perfect image that describes this series. Basically, to sum it up in a few words, the series consists of “girls”, “guns” and “moe”. Other than that, there isn’t much to take from this image. But if I also added the words “unique characters”, “pretty good action” and “cute comedy”, then you could maybe start to see what I’m talking about. But of course, it’s better to read a review about the series from someone who has seen the series and knows what he’s talking about… so let’s get on with the review, shall we?

Hagure Yuusha no Estetica ~ Review 

“An action packed, fantastical, sexy, romantic story of a perverted hero!”

When we watch anime’s that contain highly over-powered main characters, then sometimes it really ruins the story, right? Like, there’s absolutely no challenge factor for the main character, and there’s no tension for the reader. But depending on how this powerful main character is executed, it can sometimes turn into a very enjoyable and exciting series. Well, here is one of the very few series that is exactly like that (and is also very enjoyable in more ways than one, if you know what I mean…)

Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? ~ Review

Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? ~ Review

“I’m a zombie… and I also happen to be a magical girl as well…”

In one glance, this may seem like another fantasy/magical girl anime, but if you pay attention to what I am about to say, you will soon find out that this is a very different, and quite a unique anime that will leave you very satisfied (and from personal experiences, a sore stomach).

Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? revolves around Aikawa Ayumu, who is oddly enough, a zombie who as been resurrected by the necromancer that is Eucliwood Hellscythe after being kiled by an unknown serial killer. As Ayumu starts to live in his undead state, he meets a Masou-Shoujo (lit. Magical Garment Girl, a pun on “Mahou-Shoujo”) named Haruna and forcefully turns into a Masou-Shoujo himself. With many other creatures (such as vampires, magicians and Msou-Shoujo’s) Ayumu joins forces with Eucliwood and Haruna to fight evil creatures called Megalos as he tries to find the reason to his death and the serial killer that ended his life.

The absurdist genre can also be fit very neatly into this series due to its violent romantic comedy and ecci scenes.

This series is another one of those that has been derived from a light novel series, published by Fujimi Shoubo; the publishers of Monthly Dragon Age (that brought such notable series as High School Of The Dead, GoSick and Desetsu No Yuusha No Densetsu). The anime is done by Studio Deen; most famous for the animation of the Higurashi series, that definitely packed a punch for all anime fans out there (also did such notable “layed back” series as Fruits Basket, Seitokai No Ichizon and Rurouni Kenshin).

There are also many notable voice actors that show off their talents in this series; the most notable being Junji Majima (famous for the voices of Ryuji from ToraDora! and Kinji from Hidan No Aria), Yoko Hikasa (famous for the voices of Mio from K-ON! and Rias from High School DxD) and Iori Nomizu (famous for the voices of Nymph from Sora No Otoshimono and Rinko from Omamori Himari) – Iori Nomizu is also known as the singer of the opening song of the series.

Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? is full of hilarity, cute and awesome; combining the very best of mahou-shoujo, zombies and vampires into a crazy symphony that is this series. Combine this with humorous absurdist elements and a little bit of fan-service, and you have created the basis of Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka?. Furthermore, there is also a second season as well! But we’ll leave that to another time. Until then, get your cross-dressing fetishes revved up and watch this madness right now.
