Panty Shots and Blood Clots Award – Highschool of the Dead

Not my usual style by any means, but I would like to take this time to express my undying love for Highschool of the Dead. I know it is only a few episodes in, and I quite frankly have no idea where it is going but I am loving every moment of it.

If you haven’t checked out the series, I suggest you do. You may be putting it off until there are more episodes available, but where is the fun in that?


Now for the Round Table rules: As usual, each participant is given a series questions covering various aspects in anime, manga, and Japanese culture. Each individual then has to provide their opinion on the said issue. Finally, I ditch my infected friends and flee during the zombie apocalypse.

    Our Participants today are:

  • Canonlord – From the hidden mist.
  • Zehutsumei – Draws on the screen.
  • Ore-Sama – Might be Eslyn?
  • AnarchoElk – Fights in the streets.
  • SaiQ – Like SaiW, but better.
  • HoundDog – Pulls double duty.
  • Tsundere – Completes the list.

Which anime character do you feel best represents the role of “evil” within an anime, are they the final villain or merely a recurring pest?

  • Canonlord – This one took some thought. Honestly I think Orochimaru from Naruto embodies evil. I mean he is full of betrayal and murderous intent. On top of that he must be some kind of a paedophile – constantly after sasuke; mentioning numerous times he wants sasuke’s body. Not to mention his theme music and the fact that he is pretty much Michael Jackson in anime form… *shudders*
  • Zehutsumei – Picking the definitive “evil” villain is very difficult, especially in anime. It would have to go to Toutaku Chuuei from Ikki Tousen. I don’t what it is about him, whether it’d be his sinister smile or even his actions, but he just looks like he could snap at any moment.
  • Ore-Sama – Out of all the series(not very many) I have watched I would have to say Creed Diskence from Black Cat. He’s quite the recurring pest, always trying to get Train for himself. You almost get the feeling he’s and unwanted lover, but he’s really just obsessed.
  • AnarchoElk – Kira. Intellect and power are dangerous with a lack of common sense. Instead of attempting real change like Akumetsu, he instead commits mass murder on the victims of an unjust society. The evil that thinks itself to be the epitome of justice is the most dangerous evil.
  • Sai Q – The best archetype of an evil character would be Rau Le Creuset from Mobile Suit Gundam Seed. He has a cool name and he wears a mysterious mask. That’s already iconic to evil. He’s also ruthless and has no regard to human life. He’s cunning, a great leader, manipulative, and has his own personal agenda.

    On top of that, eventually he pilots the ZGMF-X13A Providence, which is like a final boss evil-gundam.

    Super-villain + mecha = evil awesomeness!

  • Hound Dog – Evil is a tricky thing to put your finger on – there’s so many different shades. I mean, Light Yagami was a pretty evil dude. And the Major from Hellsing is undeniably, viciously evil. Now and Then, Here and There had a very disturbing kind of evil villain, Hamdo. He came off a little comical, but he also made my skin crawl and he was frightening to watch, because you just couldn’t predict what he’d do next. Add that to the constant manipulation of and total disregard for anyone around him (the things he did to those children!) and you have one scary, evil character, obviously way beyond the “pest” level. Hamdo (and other villains like him) are the most evil sort in my mind because you just know after one is defeated there’s another guy waiting to take his place. There’s no happy ending.
  • Tsundere – I do not have a character that I would consider to be the greatest evil but a trio of characters. This characters are the three main girls from Kodomo no Jikan which explores their sick minds as they try to subdue their teacher to fall for one of them (they are nine years old btw). That sir is pure evil.

Zombie apocalypse has broken out. Which anime character would you put your money on to survive and why?

  • Canonlord – I’m gonna have to say Misa Amane from Death Note, I mean; I love the girl to bits but zombies look for brains, right?
  • Zehutsumei – Alucard from Hellsing, hands down, especially considering that he already does kill zombies as his job, also takes down vampires, and can do whatever he wants with his body, whether it be turning it into a large demonic dog or simply repair a limb. I would bet ten fold on this guy.
  • Ore-Sama – Alto from Macross Frontier. He pretty much fends off an entire alien race by himself just to save one girl. Not to mention he’s in that gigantically awesome VF25- Messiah Mecha Fighter. There should be no way he could lose in that thing.
  • AnarchoElk – Hello Kitty, because I’m not sure if anyone from those Sanrio anime have brains. And I don’t mean that in a cruel way, I just don’t know if anatomically they do…
  • Sai Q – I would put my money on Alucard from Hellsing. Leave it to a vampire who borderlines sanity, dual wields huge pistols, is near invincible, and has his own private zombie army.
  • Hound Dog – Brandon Heat, hands down. He doesn’t do anything halfway and he’s basically undead himself, so I imagine he knows all their dirty tricks already. Plus I know if we were trying to survive together and I got killed he’d feel really, really bad about it.
  • Tsundere – I would put my money on MAJOR ARMSTRONG as he has techniques that have been passed down for generations and… SPARKLES. He is the only guy that gets away with sparkling… Who doesn’t want to marry him.

What are some of your favorite animals in anime? Are they a main characters from a series or merely pets?

  • Canonlord – There are so many! Well firstly I swear I used to have a thing for Luna, the black cat in Sailor Moon. She was just amazing, playing the role of sailor Moons unnoticed sidekick. I also idolise meowth of Pokémon’s Team Rocket (If he counts). not just because he has money on his forehead, not just because he taught himself to walk on two legs and talk, but because he was passionate about his first love, I think her name was meowsie or something. My other favourite is Cerberus from Card Captors, hes so cool! I guess I really like cats…
  • Zehutsumei – Pen Pen from Neon Genesis Evangelion. Despite the fact that he never speaks, his body language displays his emotions perfectly. Besides, he’s a penguin who takes showers and lives in a fridge. Awesome. Another one would be Piro from Kanon, mostly because it leads to incredibly funny scenes with Nayuki.
  • Ore-Sama – Botan from Clannad. She was the most adorable little pig I have ever seen. Puhi Puhi 🙂 There are so many to choose from but another one of my favorites is Pluto from Black Butler. He loves Sebastian so much but Sebby has no love for him.
  • AnarchoElk – This was a hard one, as trying to think of animals, not a lot comes to mind. I have to say Buuta, for lack of options, though he is pretty awesome.
  • Sai Q – My favorite anime-pet is Ryoki from Tenchi Muyo. I’m not sure what kind of animal Ryoki is. Maybe she’s a hybrid cat-rabbit? Ryoki is cute, really small, likes to eat carrots, a little clumsy, and turns into a big space ship. And not just any space ship, but a space ship that meows and shoots lasers!
  • Hound Dog – My most favorite anime animal is Gulliver from Eureka 7. I don’t know why exactly, but I’ve always adored him. If you don’t know, he’s a ridiculously adorable whitish grey groundhoggy-looking thing and he’s also heavy like lead, which makes me laugh. Plus Ein, of course. Anyone who doesn’t like Ein is a big loser.
  • Tsundere – Imply put I would chose Date Masamunes horse from Sengoku BASARA. Simply put its a horse that has handle bars and exhausts. All arguements made against this are invalid.

What are your thoughts on the magical girl genre of anime? Are you a fan? Or do you have an extreme case of indifference?

  • Canonlord – I am a mass fan! I love the genre, in fact half of my beloved anime collection falls under this. I have loved the genre since I was a wee boy, in fact sailor moon and card captors are anime I have watched since I can remember. Actually to me the two anime I just mentioned are better then others such as the dragon ball series. I even Like some of the modern magical girl anime like Power Puff Girls Z. (ofcourse; not as much as sailor moon and Card Captors)
  • Zehutsumei – I like Magical Girl anime. I grew up on Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura, and I loved both of those. My favourite by far though is UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie. Full of hilarity and a peculiar twist to the genre. Some of the others though, such as Pretty Cure, just don’t capture the magic, no pun intended, for me. Not to mention a lot of the others are terrible and fall really close to H.
  • Ore-Sama – -The genre isn’t one of my favorites. There are some animes within the genre that I did enjoy, including Cardcaptor Sakura and possibly Sailor Moon. Call me old fashioned but sometimes I prefer the man to be the hero. It’s great to have a female hero everyone once in a while, but I prefer her to not be cutesy.
  • AnarchoElk – Sailor Moon was one of my favorite anime growing up. I lol’d when they made Michiru and Haruka cousins, because they were so obviously lesbians. It really added a whole other level of fetish to the dub. Most magical girl anime are aimed at young children though, so I’d have to say my interest has faded dramatically. Though magical Girl Revy was hilarious.
  • Sai Q – I enjoy watching magical girl genre for the lovable cuteness and fun storyline.

    One of my favorite ‘mahou shoujo’ anime is Card Captor Sakura. Sakura is brave, energetic, and cheerful. She’s also very athletic, but a little clumsy at times. Throughout the series, she struggles to recollect Clow Cards while keeping her identity a secret. Along the way, she meets rivals, makes friends, and fends off a world catastrophe.

    While I am a fan of ‘mahou shoujo’, I’m not a fan of lolicon. Anything that resembles pedophilia is just wrong. Plus, I don’t want Chris Hansen stalking me.

  • Hound Dog – Honestly, I’m so turned off by the character styling and voice acting (not to mention the plot and writing – ugh) that tends to typify the genre that I don’t think I’ve ever made it through a whole series. So…no. Not a fan.
  • Tsundere – I am not a fan per se but at least I know if I get bored of the typical pretty boy attends school and defeats a greater evil in his spare time. There will always be the magical girl genre that is full of series that are about a pretty girl who attends school and defeats a greater evil in her spare time…. GOSH darn it!!!!

Anime of the Day: Highschool of the dead. What are your thoughts and feelings on this relatively new series?

  • Canonlord – I only just watched some before being asked this question so my thoughts are still fresh in my head. So here they are: Firstly I really do like the series so far. I think it is funny, but its a dark kind of humour, which to me is an acquired sense. It is not for the faint hearted though, that’s for sure. It started so suddenly too, I find it very interesting though and am curious to see where its headed.
  • Zehutsumei – Zombies AND Boobs?! Count me in! This sounds like if Quentin Tarantino made an anime.
  • Ore-Sama – -By reading the description, it doesn’t seem to be my cup of tea, but it could be interesting.
  • AnarchoElk – Haven’t seen it yet, but I want to, I’ve heard good things!
  • Sai Q – I absolutely love it! Zombie Apocalypse, high school students, boobs, and panties! Sure there’s a lot of fan service, but at least it isn’t a humongous boob fest like some other anime *cough* Dragonaut the Resonance *cough*.

    Awesome characters! Takashi is heroic and really good at smashing heads. Saeko is cold, strong, and a badass with her bokken. In the first episode, I didn’t like Rei, but then I realized, she was acting like any normal person would when facing zombies. Now I find her cute, headstrong, and really good at using her makeshift spear. Saya has a large ego, but she is after all a prodigy genius. I like her attitude and she’s also cute with glasses on. Kohta is a very original character. Yay, fat gun loving Otaku finally gets some attention!

    The production staff did an excellent job with the background setting, storyboard, and screenplay. The voice cast is amazing and the soundtrack is also good. High School of the Dead is very climatic, filled with action and suspense. It’s like watching a movie, but better!

    Overall, I have high hopes for High School of the Dead. So far, it’s the best anime I’ve seen that has come out this season.

  • Hound Dog – I haven’t watched it yet! 🙁 But I plan to. I’ve heard it’s decent, and I think it sounds like something I would enjoy.
  • Tsundere – BOOBS!!! That is all.
