Sexy Anime Fan Art - Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka?

Aikawa Ayumi is your average high school student until one day; he got murdered by a serial killer. Fortunately for him, he was resurrected by the enigmatic necromancer, Eucliwood Hellscythe. However, instead of being revived as a mortal, he was turned into a zombie that allows him to exceed the limits of a normal human being as well as giving him superhuman strength. The only drawback though is that he is weak against sunlight and it dries him up and he can still feel pain when physically injured.

The story progress with the protagonist slowly realizing that he is stronger than he initially thought. And after meeting and draining the magical powers of Haruna, who is a magical girl, Aikawa is then able to turn himself into a more powerful being dressed as a magical girl.

Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka is a harem anime. A harem is a genre of anime wherein there is a single male protagonist who is surrounded by a lot of supporting female characters. The anime has a total of thirteen episodes including an OVA. The plot is interesting but since it only has a couple of episodes, it was not given much focus until the last few episodes of the series. There is also a running gag in the anime wherein the protagonist always gets hacked into pieces by the enemies but still survives since he is already dead. The good thing about the anime is that the atmosphere is light and has humor in it. Furthermore, it is a shounen anime, anime directed to the younger male audience so they are more likely to appreciate the harem concept.

On the other hand, the magical girl aspect of the anime will attract young female audiences. Overall, the ideas are unique and can be recommended for the general audiences. If you are someone who loves to watch some zombie kicking the ass of other creatures of the dark or another zombie, then this anime is for you.
