TV series PV:
Necropsis: I was looking in other sites for the synopsis of this sequel but I only found the same from season 1 so I'll give my own based from what I watched about its first episode subbed: "Kore was Zombie desu ka OF THE DEAD (based from the light novel's Jigokuhen arc) takes off where the first season events left after Eucliwood Hellscythe vanquishes the King of the Night, days later at school Ayumu asks himself again -Why did you choose me Gaia?- while shriveling and meets a mysterious girl in white outfit named Chris (who had a cameo the previous season)... at home he asks Haruna and Seraphim about her but they tell him he's hallucinating by stress believing she's a fairy, he goes back to the nurse office finding the squid megalo Icarus instead and transforms himself into a Masou Shoujo in front of all his classmates to defeat it but he's unable to erase their memories while spreading their pics on internet as the magical chainsaw Mystletainn was broken after the fight."
Necropinion:: with the dejįvu first ep. I'm glad to see again this supernatural H harem full of good humor but dunno why I had the bad habit to find similarities from Nise/Bakemonogatari characters and their development on KwZdK with certain differences like in this one has more action with less dialogues or monologues, that the male undead protagonist Ayumu fights back a lot more than simply being Araragibeaten in most fights and in their diverse metaharems the girls are mostly tsundere than in the monogatari series that they have more variated personalities... thinking about it I'm afraid S2 may fall focusing more in ecchi and comedy than main plot just like Nisemonogatari (and many other sequels) did but I wish that'll be not the case in the next episodes so with low expectation I'll give with 6/10 just like the S1 OVA
MOD Note: Topic split since I thought new season, new thread folks.
Oh and the first season discussion is in this thread folks.
