TIME OF THE SEASON Summer 2015 Edition: School-LIVE!

So……this is supposed to be about zombies and school girls or some shit like that?

*sees first glance at it*

Oh, OK. Yep, moe girls and all that shit. Mostly what some otaku is digging nowadays but that’s to be expected at this point. Hell, most of you busted a nut over Sound! Euphonium and you might do the same shit again with this one.

Folks, this is School-Live! (or Gakkou Gurashi if you want to say it in its Japanese title.)

Plot Summary: Four girls decide to stay over at school: the energetic Yuki Takeya, the shovel-loving Kurumi, the center of the group Yūri who brings everyone together, and the spacey school adviser Megu. However, through mysterious circumstances, the girls find themselves the final survivors in a zombie attack, and continue to live at the school.

First Thoughts: Wow……um, I was about to write this off as some generic moe school girls in a club anime that has its audience but when it gets into the 19-minute mark, you…..well, it’s not really a twist since you figured out the plot to this already but you wouldn’t know if it didn’t tell you. I admit it did came out of nowhere but when it comes to moe school girl shows, this is actually more unique in its first episode. It manages to do more in those 3 minutes than Sound! Euphonium in its whole run and I’m not just saying that because I think that show sucks. (But, yeah, S!E does suck) and thankfully a studio like Lerche is doing this because based off their work in Assassination Classroom and the other airing show that got this season Ranpo Kitan, they could make something worth investing in if it does more than just the standard.

Then again, I thought The Rolling Girls was going to be interesting but I thought wrong obviously.

However, I got little hope of that so this is a CONTINUE on a Low Priority.

You pulled it off at the last minute. Let’s hope it pays off and not suck.

This has been MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid, hoping this show does more than do stupid cute shit. But I doubt it.
