could have been awesome...
29 June 2012 | by joelherroSee all my reviews

I liked this show, but it had the potential to be so much better...

Furuya is obsessed with zombies and his dream girl is a zombie, which would be weird normally, but this is anime...anyway, he meets Rea, a rich girl who has problems at home and wants to get away from her life and start a new one...meanwhile Furuya's cat dies and he uses an old resurrection spell to revive it (as you do) which turns it into a zombie...I won't spoil the story, but you can tell where this is going...

The animation was cool and the characters were interesting, but it was fairly light-hearted stuff, considering the subject matter...I would have preferred them to go down a darker path and make it more for adults, but that's just me...anyway, it's still pretty good...
