I'm sure all of you know about zombies. There's been a huge zombie craze ever since Night of the Living Dead first came out, and it's only become more popular since then. We've had a string of some really awesome zombie-related works, such as the Resident Evil and Silent Hill video games, and then we've had some really crappy stuff like the movie Warm Bodies, which I thought was quite possibly the worst cinematic production featuring zombies of all time.
The saving grace of this story isn't necessarily the story itself, but the development of the characters and what they go through as the story progresses. Rea is a surprisingly sweet character, if you can get past the fact that she's basically a walking corpse, and Chihiro is actually pretty cool, once you get over the fact that he wants to date a walking corpse. The interactions between the two can be quite humorous at times, and there were a few times where I wanted to "aw"--until I remembered Rae is a zombie, and then I wanted to go, "what the hell is wrong with you, Brandon?!"
Despite the serious creepy factor this anime had going for it, I did enjoy watching it. However, I will also admit that this anime isn't for everyone.
