High School of the Dead Episode 7

Last week, I ran with an One Pic Post about HotD. This week, things actually happened and while there was a truck load of lame fanservice, there was also a moment of “Oh yeah, this is actually awesome! Zombies!”

That's all that happened.

A Quick Summary

At the hideout, it’s time for some action. Hirano and Takashi saw a little girl, Alice, with her father attempt to get into a house. They were outright rejected, her father was killed. Soon, the zombies started to advance toward her but Hirano started headshot sniping them easily. Takashi gets on his bike and propels himself through the hoards and eventually meets up with the girl, saving her. Of course, he is now surrounded by them because he used his gun alerting them to his location. Hirano notices as the group prepares to rescue him with the Hum-V that is walking along the fence. Alice had to pee. Finally, Takashi and Alice jump to safey on the Hum-V where all the girls are hardly dressed to be outside and they drive off into the night.

Oh My Zombies

'Daddy! The zombies didn't bite you yet! You can't die!'

Alice’s father is looking pretty pale there. I don’t know if the cast really needed another member, but I guess they’ll take whatever they can get. When they took the initiative to save her anyway, Takashi and Hirano surprisingly declared their humanity and Rei commented about that too. Takashi ignored Saeko totally though, but in her outfit, how could anyone take her seriously?

Maybe this show has some decency after all

Aside from the fanservice in this episode, Rei managed to look unaccustomedly cute for just a moment so maybe there is hope after all.

'Was that a pot hole I just ran over?'

Seriously. This was the best scene so far in this show. Flying zombies are excellent to watch, better than flying fish, monkeys, or anything else that flies. It was too bad that the Hum-V had so little screen time though because it was absolutely excellent.


All that this episode did was affirm that these characters were still human enough to want to save a little girl with pink hair from 1000 blood drinking zombies. That’s all it did but it did it well.

Out of all the anime I’m watching this season, this anime has by far the most characters. And they just added another one! When will it end?
