What is your favourite anime so far?
You have got to be kidding me! This has got to be the hardest question yet. How am I supposed to pick a favourite? I feel like this changes so often. It’s one of the reasons I don’t put a rating in my reviews because then I would be forced to compare them against each other… All right. Fine. I’ll pick one. My favourite anime so far is Highschool of the Dead.
Why is that?
I have moved countries a couple of times and had to sell off old DVDs and stuff. Don’t worry, all my old books are still at my parent’s house. Because of the moves, I had fallen out of the anime scene for quite a while. It was hard to keep up with most things.
Then one day I stumbled across a clip on YouTube. That’s right, you guessed it. It was from Highschool of the Dead and I instantly needed to find more. I found more episodes online and watched as much as I could. I order the BluRay collection and the two full-colour hardback mangas.
I’ve always been a huge zombie nut and have a thing for strong girls and swords… If you’ve seen Highschool of the Dead, I imagine you can instantly understand why it would have appealed to me.
Is there more to it than that?
Absolutely. Because it’s a harem anime it will be instantly written off by some people, but I really enjoyed the characters and the way they were forced together. I also love the animation style and character design. Sure, there’s plenty of fan service but that doesn’t bother me. If you remember a couple of days back, it’s pretty much my guilty pleasure…
Anything else you’d like to say?
Sure, not everyone is going to like it, but I think more and more people would be surprised to find they do. I have read some rather scathing reviews and that’s fine, but it has made me want to do a set of blog posts through December all on Highschool of the Dead. I’m calling it HotDD!
