 And those would be....
   Anime, Zombie Flix, Sex, and Violence_ And as far as I was concerned excellent fan service. I do agree with the statements in previous reviews. It is very well over the top. But is that not one of, or even the reason that we become Otaku to begin with? The ability to experience levels of exaggeration that are palatable only in the safety of a 2D environment? Situations, characteristics (physical or otherwise) that would make us cringe with repugnance in a live action visual media are not only tolerable but tasty. I would argue that the sexual exaggerations were a stamp of respect. The series was very obviously inspired by western zombie/horror cinema. The over the top fan service not only stayed true to western horror formula, but in my opinion was needed to keep the series light. Well lighter_(in a most deliciously depraved manner). If we hadn't been distracted by ridiculous though classic anime panty shots and plunging side, top, bottom and back cleavage, it would have gotten way to depressing way too quickly. I personally love the silliness of over the top zombie flix. But that's just my opinion.

Pros:
~Great characters (in design and personality).
~Awesome story_classic zombie flic formula with just enough silliness.
~Wonderfully exaggerated female forms that  anyone with a healthy affinity toward the fairer sex should enjoy.
~Zombies, T&A, need I say more?

If you are an Otaku with a zombie fetish...I would be surprised if you didn't come out begging for more.
Highly Recommended.
