Highschool of the Dead

Hai~ Fall in love!

You are a fucking winner if you know what the lines are.

But seriously what the fuck is with this episode. Let me just quote someone:

“Apparently Saeko was killed by the zombies last week and they introduced her identical twin off screen, because this character and the one seen in the last eight episodes have practically nothing in common. She was prancing around without pants not two episodes ago without caring. Now she’s ashamed to be seen slightly wet? What? Did I miss a memo somewhere? “

From the whole “Komuro to isshoni” to getting wet to the yandere parts and the Heroic BSoD (which, I might add Komuro solved with a night of hot steamy sex and a public molestation), I was really wondering what the fuck happened to my oh-so-fucking-awesomely-kakkoii Busujima-senpai of the past few weeks.

Then, there’s also Komuro being a fucking boss…

Highschool of the Dead

… or not.

I seriously missed Hirano in this episode. Oh well, they’re reuniting next week, thank God.

    So prancing only with an apron is alright, but a wet shirt is shameful?

    Oh logic in this show…

    Komuro is so pimp, when he molests you, you come back from the brink of suicide.

    Well, if you want to stretch it a bit, she probably doesn’t want to -using TvTropes terminology- act perverted towards a love interest( :D. Of course, this leaves the question on WHEN she started to see him as a love interest…

    I think the reason the characters seem so starkly different is cause of the fact that the anime skipped a few chapters of the manga before going into this. I don’t think there was that much of a stark difference.

    I think she got embarrassed more cause of Takashi looking at her more than anything. I think the whole Higurashi moment, with her being slightly sadistic, was a nice twist and it showed that she was putting on a brave face more than anything.

    It showed that she’s human, and that there was a reason she was holding up so well in the current apocalyptic situation.

    Dunno why you guys complain.

    The writing, character (in)consistency/stupidity and shit was as bad as always and even though the lack of the otaku hero and service was noticeable we got twice as much Saeko badassery (including her finally getting a real sword) as ever. Seeing how she is one of the only two characters who are worth any real mention in this show I enjoyed this a lot.

    Man, I think you quote it from Tenka Seiha…

    But anyway, that episode made me wet when watching it!

    Takashi did something to her in the temple (They’ve kissed and whatever), cause the camera zoomed on Saeko’s skirt when they went out the temple. Takashi admitted he did those lecherous things for survival.

    But, at least they got a upgrade from bokken to a more badass katana. That means more blood, more slicing action, more fanservice(maybe?) =D.

    I was tickled at the implied romp in the sack that Madhouse threw in (complete with skirt adjustment the morning after!), but it still felt a bit off.

    Not so much that they skipped some chapters as they seem to be a little out of order. The manga’s original way of getting that katana was a lot more dramatic, in my opinion.

    Now i know why her name sounds like “Psycho”
    That katana is pretty cool, but once the blade dulls its gonna be a bitch.
