Zombie Girl for Gainax

Shikabane Hime Confirmed as Gainax’s new TV Series

…confirmed that Gainax‘s new television series will be Shikabane Hime (Corpse Princess) this fall…

Ray’s take: I saw the manga and I wasn’t all that impressed. A little big more background on the story: Makina the heroine herself was killed by a undead and then she was “raised” by her trainer/handler the Buddhist monk guy (I forgot his name) in vengeance (don’t they all do that). The undead here aren’t necessarily zombies, and they are undead because of their left over desire. Again, I think the art in the manga was up to par, the story for some reason wasn’t all that impressive. There was a lot of gore and a lot of action. I suppose the character dynamic was good and once again, the villain wants to destroy a certain order in the world to create his own because of certain traumatizing event in his past.

Some magical Japanese style Buddhist sorcery goes on plus machine guns, swords and undead attacks and well, you get the idea. Not that I’m not recommending it, but I guess for me, it was all right.
