Anime of the Week (4/8 – 4/14)

Anime of the Week – Sankarea
This is definitely a thinking person’s anime. It gives rise to such thoughts as the purpose of love and the value of life. And it’s supported well by Chihiro and Rea’s excellent chemistry.
April 8 Fate/Zero Ep. 14 I’d always known Tokiomi was a dick, but I never imagined that the twisted depths of his disgusting logic ran so deep.
April 9 Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead Ep. 1 Initial impression – more silliness http://wp.me/p1Gaby-kE
A-Channel +smile Ep. 1 Ah! It’s really refreshing to see some new content for this series. The girls’ friendship always makes me happy.
A-Channel +smile Ep. 2 I love how Tooru frames helping Yuuko get over her cold in terms of nursing the number one victim of her teasing.
April 10 Medaka Box Ep. 1 Initial impression – could go either way http://wp.me/p1Gaby-kJ
Mirai Nikki Ep. 25 Ok…now what? It seems Yukiteru has no avenue of escape and he’s well and truly lost. What will be the finale’s twist?
April 11 Natsuiro Kiseki Ep. 1 Initial impression – I don’t follow (3/10) http://wp.me/p1Gaby-kM
April 12 Upotte!! Ep. 1 Initial impression – a difficult premise (3/10) http://wp.me/p1Gaby-kP
April 13 Sankarea Ep. 1 Initial impression – surprisingly interesting and well-thought http://wp.me/p1Gaby-kS
April 14 Sankarea Ep. 2 I can really feel for Rea. Anyone might think death to be an alternative to the oppressive lifestyle imposed by her father.
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia Ep. 1 Initial impression – an aura of fun http://wp.me/p1Gaby-kV

Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead Ep. 1

Initial impression – more silliness

Spring 2012 (10 episodes) (title literal translation – Is this a Zombie? of the Dead) (more info)

And so begins Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead, the second season of a series that I thought already did everything it needed to the first time.  Ayumu, the zombie who is so alive you’d swear he’s just a normal human, is still living with a nice variety of three young women and his latent masou-shoujo powers continue to be sought after by Megalo monsters dressed in gakuran.  What more could be added to this ecchi comedy series definitely hasn’t been made clear in the first episode—other than Ayumu is going to have a much harder time feigning normalcy than he was able to during the first season.  Given the title animation, it looks like old enemy Kyoko is back for round two and she’s just as crazy as before.  Other than that, it seems Kore wa Zombie 2 is going to just sort of do its own thing—following on in the first season’s wacky, ecchi formula of oddly combined character archetypes that manage to be cool in a very nonchalant manner.  I’m not optimistic the second season will compare favorably with the first (few sequels do) but I’m ready to see where Ayumu’s new misadventures lead him.
