Impressions: High School of the Dead

Alright, to keep me busy with stuff that deals with DSR and to keep this blog alive with stuff other than updates, I (or any other of our staff) will be doing impressions of Anime, TV shows, Websites, and Games. Now, don’t think of these as reviews as we do reviews on the show it self but if you are feeling like hearing some body else’s point of view on something, this is the place. You can also ask for our impressions on anything, but more on that later.

So, I had the pleasure of watching High School of the Dead, a new anime developed  by the people at Madhouse (love those guys)  and based from the Manga  of the same name by Daisuke Sato. The story is, if you haven’t guess it, Japan is overtaken by a Zombie Virus and it follows the events of Takashi and his group of follow classmates and the school nurse.

For full discretion I will say that I am a big fan of Zombie flicks for some reason—- I love em! So, when I heard about this from a friend of mine, I had to check it out. The first episode was very good. The characters, to me, seem believe able…at least believable in a Zombie Movie.

Don't call it a comeback...cause it's not...

The art is pretty good and voices are very well done. Also, if you are a fan of…er…fan service, there is a lot of that. A lot of bouncy, especially from the school nurse who just got the big end of the stick of life and has the really big ones. So far, it’s some what by the numbers and I like the fact that the group had issues BEFORE they got together, there is back story with everyone involved.

I don't think he's doing it right...

The Action is good and you will have some favorite parts  from each episode. Music is awesome with the opening theme kicking ass and their choice of having a different ending theme at the end of each episode (all done by Maon Kurosaki).

All in all, if you are into Zombies, people killing Zombies, and fan service, check out High School of the Dead. I liked it.

Short Update

Just a little updated, I added an about page for the show and an about page of the host and staff. Also, all previous episodes  of DSR are up in the Episode Guide  page up top. If there is a broken link, leave a comment on the page. I don’t check the page on a daily basis, so I need to know.

Also More importantly, we should be recording the show during this week. Me and Akuma still need to figure out some more song choices and I need to redo the news and my review of some anime that I had watch over our “dead period”. I’m hoping to h ave the show up by the following week if everything goes according to plan. Till then,

Welcome to the DSR Blog

Welcome to the D Saint Radio blog or DSR Blog for short. This is where you get all your information on the show itself, the host and staff, and other stuff that don’t make it to the blog like rants and news. As of right now, the blog is in a building stage and there really is nothing on here to look at but host info and and show info but in the coming days and weeks, it will be up and ready along with the 4th episode of D Saint Radio. The Person that types this, and any future post unless noted, is me, Maxwell Knight. Akuma Shadow and I are separate people through and through. He handles the show and public while I work on the blog.

There are other people on staff but I still have to get everyone’s info and stuff before everyone is known but there are people who do help out.

Like I said, things are slowly being put together and Shadow, the staff and I are hard at work with the blog and show itself.

Oh right, before I forget. Everyone at DSR made a turny bracket. That’s all I’m going to stay for now. Akuma will explain in the next episode. Till Then,
