Feels like forever since we got a Majisuka Gakuen! and while Sailor Zombie is no MG, with the way things are looking, it might just as well be Majisuka Gakuen ~ Story of Side B – The Zombie Apocalypse! But first I gotta give thanks to the good Lord out there for deciding on Owada to lead this thing because if it has been any of the 3 Over-hypedsteers I swear to God I would have…
Seriously though, it’s just because she is in B now but ever since I saw her surprise Centre Show is Over, a song that is actually pretty good, to me anyway, I was so blown away by her! The way she felt fit in that position still shocks me even now! I have no idea why they went for the 3 whatevs because except for Mikichan, I really don’t see the charm in the other two. Nana is okay because of her ‘personality’ as I love quite and serious girls like her but they are all really just not…And I am getting derailed again.
Going back to Owada Nana, I am really glad she was chosen for this! And the choice of Juri co-starring alongside her was another jackpot! I was seeing a lot of pics of these two lately on G+ and I was wondering what was going on. Surely it wasn’t just because they were both now on the same Team (Ah Team B, how much more awesome can you get!). Turns out this was the reason. They had been shooting a new 48 drama!
But 48-only it is not! And of course the first face that popped out to me was none other than Koike Rina! If any of the girls in class are members of the 48 sisters, I apologise but I don’t know them! Kawaei is also in this and girl, What a bitch-y character she has! She was out to get Nana from the very moment they met! Nana hadn’t even spoken a word dearest Kawaei was already showing her the way out! She even resorted to buying nana’s exit. She would pay her if nana would just GTFO!
There are other members as well. Like Mayuyu, Yuihan and Karen being in some kind of Zombie Idol unit or some thing! They are like Nana’s fairy friends or something! Then there is Souchan. She is apparently the –kun of the Zombies in this hood yo! Yes, she is as huge as a titan! Apparently zombies in here get that big! Yeah, crazy huh? But really, since when does AKB dramas make sense? Even the apparent realistic Sakura kara no Tegami had its WTF moments so really, when it comes to AKB dramas, I just sit back and enjoy the show! And since there is bound to be the GAY FORCE then really, I have no choice! And speaking of the Force, my senses were tingling like crazy!
First up these two! Dear god, my senses were going haywire whenever these two shared the same screen space! I kid you not, I was freaking out over here! Strange logic let me tell you. As you might know, I am a shipper of JURINA, not that Jurina but Juri/Rina. So it should be expected that I should ship them now that they are in the same drama right, well apparently that ain’t so. I mean they were both in MG3 – the Lost Arc but they were on just not compatible that time with their characters. Here though, they have a thing going on that just rubs me in the brain telling me there is a history between them. And their characters here aren’t so un-thinkable to get it on. Seems like Messi isn’t afraid to go head to head with the self-nominated Queen Bee of this survival School.
Yes, anything can happen that will make them super shippable and I know it will happen but I am not one for could be. I take what I get first and what I got was super cool not crazy Messi and one surprise Nana. Oh yeah, she has a name for the drama and so do the others but they yuri blinded me and really, i prefer to call them Messi and Mana really. Juri was just too cool a character to be called anything else and since we all here are pretty much all of the fandom, I prefer to call Nana Nana than Maiko or Mayuko or whatever the hell the name is!
These two’s chemistry this one episode was just fabulous! The love in Messi’s eyes when she looks at Nana is just so…>.< So different from her No-fucks given attituide she has going on. BTW, I like the way she says Mendo…as short for troublesome. I hope it is a hint for season two of a certain drama. You know which I am talking about! The cast for it are all still around and kicking so really, WTHNot?! Any way, going back to Messi and Nana, from the very moment Messi jumped to Nana’s rescue and saved her unconscious body from being devoured by zombies after she has an accident to that awesome awesome such an awesome pool scene, so awesome that I said awesome five times, I was already shipping!
And though Nana is kind of hard to read, I think she too is taken with Messi. I mean who would be! Messi is practically her guardian angel, or bodyguard or knight, however you want to look at it. Nana would have to be a fool to not fall for trap of delicious cake! But for some reason I don’t see the love, I don’t feel it. Maybe it’s the acting? I mean she is good, she has the look but emotion delivery is not a talent but an acquired skill and nana is as green as they get so I forgive her and will delude myself into thinking that she just doesn’t know how to deliver feelings yet instead of the alternative.
The alternative being of course that she is actually a good actress and knows what she is doing. Which means that she doesn’t have feelings at all for Messi which brings my mind to another matter. It might just have been me but I have a deja vu moment when I see nana and Rina. Their polarity is usually a recipe for romance and the way Nana seems taken with Rina, still hoping for recognition from her even after all the bitchy treatment, makes me worried, worried in the sense that I am a Messi/nana shipper but if we end up with a Rina/nana or even a threesome, I have no objections.
Still, no matter how huge of heel-turn they make, bitchy characters are a hard pill to swallow. Well, except in the case of one Anzai Manami. Yeah, I just can’t wrap my mind around that. It’s still a mystery. I will forever ship Ayumi with Manami first and foremost! i know I am messed up no need to waste your saliva. Saliva is important.
Then there is these two. The FUCK YEAH LESBIANS COMFIRMED! Sadly I could only catch Yori’s name (the quiet, short-haired girl) but not the Hasbando’s from this episode. I am sure I will learn it eventually. But seriously though, Gay scientists and a think it seems. Why are all lesbians the wisest girls! From Willow, to Dephine and Cosima and now we have these two. It’s a thing I tell ya!
I came into this expecting only to go away with the 48 girls but looks like I am staying for much much more than I was anticipating. No body said anything about Mayuyu and Co being in this and seemingly recurring characters at that not to mention the ED and probably OP covers’. There is also Rina, the other Team B Rina, no not that Rina, I mean the other Rina…Oh man, I mean Izuta Rina! Looks like Team B has a fetish for same-name girls or something. I mean the last Team B we had three Satos and now we have three Rinas! Oh well, just another charm about my favourite Team yo! Any way, it seems Izuta is a thing too. She might as well be even more famous than the Mayuyu brigade of zombie idols! We’ve only seen posters of her so far though. I am sure she will be showing up later on.
Then of course as I mentioned already, Souchan is also showing up and in Attack on the titans style! And by that I mean that the Big Boss has come to strike fear in the hearts of food knowing that they can’t do shit but lay there and be ready to be eaten. just like Titan-kun did. They call her the Zombie boss so I doubt they will do shit. And knowing them, we will probably not see her again after next episode.
But that last cameo gave me hope for future episodes. I hope that means that we will be getting the Kamis appearing each episode. Oh my goodness, what would Rena be like if she shows up? I mean there is no way they can out-do Gekikara. only better thing would be Zombie Gekikara but I doubt that will happen! teh again since they can rip off Titan-kun, what’s to stop them from doing it to their own series?
Everything said and done though, I am looking forward to more of Sailor Zombie guys. The cast was one of the worries I had but looks like they were squashed so hard that the effects were reversed even. No way I am passing up on this after what I have seen. It’s gonna be messy but with Messi around and being all Knightly around Nana and Koike and the FUCK YEAH LESBIANS CONFIRMED, there is just no way I am passing up on this.
Looks like my Saturday’s are taken lover. sorry about that!
See ya and Happy Easter dear Readers.
