Koreha Zombie Desuka?
Origin: Light novels which spawned 3 versions of manga and an anime...
Genre: Mahou Shoujo, comedy, harem (*sigh*)
Studio: Studio Deen
Subtitle: Episode #1 -HorribleSubs
Summary: A boy is killed, then resurrected as a zombie (?!) and joins a team of girls...and becomes a mahou shoujo...?
Preview: This sounds...odd. Zombies & magical girls? Unfortunately it also appears to be a harem and I hate those...*sigh*
Review: This starts out with a high school boy leaving school for the day and spotting a kitten about to get hit by a truck. He saves it and gets hit by the truck and just then remembers...he's a zombie. As he flies through the air and loses his clothes, it's clear that this is a comedy...
He lives with the mute necromancer who saved him after he was killed by a serial killer. Hanging out in the graveyard, he runs into a magical girl with a pink...chainsaw, chasing a demon-creature for a school assignment... After the demon creature kills him, she tries to erase his memory and ends up erasing her clothes and losing her powers...She also moves in until she can figure out why her powers are gone...The boy ends up with her powers and must transform to battle a giant perverted crayfish...?
Okay -nothing too pervy yet, but there's humor (not the funny kind yet) and a parody magical girl...with a pink chainsaw. There is also comedic gore. The previews promise a ninja girl and another girl eventually and it's mildly interesting, if not entertaining. It is also clearly NOT a magical girl show...although the boy does transform into a magical...boy...
Yumekui Merry aka Dream Eater Merry
Airing: Jan 6 2011
Review: This isn't a magical show, but only because Merry doesn't transform...therefore I would like to make it an "honorary mahou shoujo anime"
Merry NIghtmare is from the World of Dreams, somehow having ended up in "Reality". She has the power to send back the nightmares who try to break through the gate and possess people with dreams. Here's how it works. A nightmare finds a human with a weakness -isn't popular with boys, is shy, has no friends- and exploits it then possesses them, taking over their body. Merry finds them through Yumeji - a guy who can see dream auras -and defeats them. All she needs is a wand because she comes in the cute costume.
