[Ended] Kore wa Zombie Desu ka of the Dead: Lost the Touch

Throughout the first series, there have been series of cleverly setup moments that are designed to create some heart-wrenching moments to contrast the over the top outrageousness that the other 90% of the anime consists of.

This second season, however, either they've lost their touch, or they have intentionally tuned it down, these supposedly heart-wrenching moments has not been nearly as effective or emotional. In my opinion, that was about the only redeeming point of the story. Without that, it has gone from an emotional turmoil to some cross dressing nonsense. Grant it that it still retained some intricacy in some of the plot setup, but it's not nearly enough to make the story impressive.

Final Scoreboard:

Drama: 80 (Scattered)
Comedy: 82 (Getting old)
Action: 82 (Magical Girl Man)
Art/Animation: 81 (Same stuff)
Sound/Music: 80 (So so)
Character: 86 (Somewhat interesting)
Plot: 76 (Too much filler)
Ending: 80 (They want to make more)

Re-watch value: 30 - Mostly not worth it

Overall: 80 - Far Inferior

Recommendation: If you really like the first series, I'd say give this one a shot, you may find something else they did in this series to be interesting. But if you didn't care much for the first series to begin with, then I'd say this series does not worth your time.
