Product Description

Some guys have no luck; he's got no pulse. That's life for poor unfortunate, undead Ayumu. First, he was murdered by a serial killer. Total bummer. Then he was resurrected as a zombie by a cute little Necromancer. That seemed pretty cool until she moved into his house, refused to speak, and forced his rotting carcass to do all the cooking. After that, a magical girl in a pretty pink dress used her matching chainsaw to chop his corpse in half. Luckily, the Necromancer's powers of resurrection trumped those of the chainsaw chick, so instead of dying (again), Ayumu became the world's first magical girl zombie. There's also a voluptuous vampire ninja who thinks zombie boy is a pervert and a hideous crayfish demon who wants to devour him. Confused? All you gotta know is this: zombies, frilly dresses, demons, and more chainsaws. Pink. It s the new dead.

The answer to the question posed in the title of Is This a Zombie? (2011) is "yes": High school student Ayumu Aikawa died, then was somehow revived by necromancer Eucliwood "Eu" Hellscythe. As if being a zombie weren't tough enough, Ayumu somehow absorbs the power of "Magical Garment Girl" Haruna, enabling him to wield a pink chainsaw that dispatches supernatural monsters called "Megalos." But he wields it wearing a frilly dress, hat, and ribbons. Eu and Haruna move in with Ayumu and are soon joined by buxom vampire ninja Seraphim. The premise of Is This a Zombie? is no sillier than Ah! My Goddess or Tenchi Muyo!, but director Takaomi Kanasaki and his crew can't seem to decide if they're making a harem comedy, a supernatural adventure, or a fan service jiggle-a-thon. Ayumu is typical of the good-natured, devoted schlubs at the center of many harem comedies: he cooks and cleans for the women who move into his conveniently empty house and becomes attached to all of them. But unlike the girls in Love, Hina and other examples of the genre, the women in Zombie aren't nice to long-suffering Ayumu. Haruna screams, fusses, and kicks him; Seraphim beats him up and refers to him as a maggot; Eu is kinder than the others, but she communicates only through written notes, and is no bargain. The tone of the show shifts radically in episode 9, growing darker as the filmmakers tardily introduce a couple of threatening subplots. The story ends with episode 11, and the last two installments are just fan service farces that have nothing to do with the rest of the series. (Rated TV MA: violence, violence against women, nudity, risqué and toilet humor) --Charles Solomon

4.0 out of 5 stars A Crazy, Fun, and Unexpected series December 15, 2012
By KevinB
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ayumu is a high school student, a zombie, and a chain saw wielding magical girl. Oh yeah, he's also a guy. He was resurrected by a necromancer after being murdered by a serial killer. Now he lives with 3 girls. The mute Necromancer who saved him, a Magical Girl, and a Vampire Ninja chick. His life is pretty crazy. Now he kills demons, goes to school, and hunts for the person that murdered him.

This anime is one of the most off-the-wall shows I've seen since Excel Saga. The story is way crazy. The production quality is great. The voice actors, animation, and soundtrack are all very well done. The characters are really cool, funny and very memorable. Is This A Zombie ? also covers a wide range of genres. It has action, comedy, drama, harem, and romance. There is a lot of fanservice and some moderately strong language, so it's not for younger viewers. I'd say 14 and up. I really enjoyed it quite a lot. I would give it 5 stars, but I don't think I can b/c it's so crazy and not serious at all. I do think that fans of shows like Rosario Vampire, Heaven's Lost Property, or Saber Marionette J will get a kick out of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent a must own! December 16, 2013
By Ash
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A zombie high school student reanimated by a necromancer after being murdered by a serial killer sets out to bring his killer to justice, but when he unintentionally steals the magical powers of a chainsaw wielding monster slaying girl his unlife becomes much more complicated.

The animation, characters, humor, story and English dub are amazing! A unique take on the zombie mythos and an absolutely hilarious anime!

Be warned that the series is not suitable for children due to all the fan service and if you're unfamiliar with the term then let me explain. Fan service means there are a lot of large jiggling breasts, revealing clothing, panty exposing character animations, poses and camera angles as well as brief nudity and strongly suggestive themes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it's a Zombie and it's a blast January 15, 2013
A zombie that can do magic - but only whey he transforms into a cross-dressing cute outfit (that gets cuter the more power he uses), a Necromancer from Hell, add a Vampire Ninja (and occasionally her clan) and a magic wielding girl that has lost her powers, and you have our main characters. It's a tongue-in cheek mild Ecchi harem Anime that has plenty of action, lots of humor and lovable characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool Show!!!! March 6, 2013
This anime turned out to be funny and lots of fun to watch with my son. He just tuned 15 and has now gotten in to anime and likes zombie movies. So this was right up to what he could want for a mix of both zombies and anime. We loved it and cant wait until season 2 comes out...

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Enjoyable May 22, 2013
The only reason for a missing star is the price. I just can't pay $40 for 10 episodes when it is available for free (hulu). That being said...

A simple way to sum up this series is:
This is a gem that was, overlooked in my books, kept me hooked for all 10 episodes, has a good english cast and isn't saturated with fanservice.

I was simply surprised at how enjoyable it was and don't regret a single minute spent watching it. Must watch, Buy if you REALLY want DVD's for some reason.
