ZombieLand Saga

I suddenly find myself at a loss for words. 

I read the blurb. But what the blurb describes...that's not what I watched.

From the Blurb...

A typical morning. The usual music. Their normal lives. The peace these seven girls experience will suddenly be destroyed. By the living dead... zombies. A reality that they never wanted a part of, an amazing and terrifying zombie world. They all share one wish: "We want to live." These girls will struggle through this saga, in order to achieve a miracle. MAPPA, Avex Pictures, and Cygames team up to bring you a juicy, 100% original anime. A timeless shocker for all audiences, a brand new style of zombie anime, will soon rise.

Now ignore the blurb. 


Just go watch Zombie Land Saga posthaste.

No. I mean NOW!

Trust me.

This is the show to beat this season.

The one fly in the ointment is that Kotaro (Mamoru Miyano's character.) is moving well into the 'complete jerk' department, so it is not perfect.  He is also clearly incompetent in most things as well, which make him even more grating.

But...So far, Zombie Land Saga is fantastic.  I never watch zombie or undead premise stuff, let alone horror, and I greatly enjoy the series - I actually laughed at what occurred in first TWO minutes of the series.

He put all his points in cosmetology.

4 And also necromancy.  Possibly.  Maybe.

There is one other thing that bother me about Zombie Land Saga - though it bothers me far less than it would have bothered Steve:

I can not say I like the idea of an undead loli all that much.  At least it somehow works in context.

6 She's just remarkably well-preserved.
I'm of two minds about this show. It's got about two or three minutes of pure brilliance per episode. But a lot of the rest of it is -really- just not enjoyable. Too much awkward "we're up on stage and would rather not be here" points where I just turn it off and walk away. And Kotaro is no Ilpalazzo.

7 From the perspective of just the first episode, Kotaro seems like the Sorcerer's Apprentice:  he read the first page of the book, and now he thinks he knows enough.  Details he doesn't have the answer to are irrelevant.
