Seoul Station Zombie Anime

You may be familiar with the film Train to Busan. It’s quite a popular action horror film set in South Korea, while this particular movie serves as the prequel to the prestigious Train to Busan film.

It was directed by a Korean director, and in terms of plot, it portrays how the zombie epidemic emerges in downtown Seoul.

Now, if you want some bizarre zombie content and also like the Train to Busan film you might enjoy this one. Though keep in mind the CGI is on steroids in this one.

After South Korea, we have a Chinese anime though it is also available in the Japanese dub. The plot follows the protagonist name Zhang Chulan. He just happened to be in the graveyard paying a visit to his grandma’s grave when a bunch of zombies just popped out of thin air and suddenly started attacking him.

Zhang Chulan was not amused. Fortunately, before the zombies can increase their ranks, a mysterious girl appears at the scene and using kitchen knives, she stops the zombies.

Later, Chulan sees her at his university and realizes that this dilemma hasn’t ended yet. Over the years, there have been plenty of installments of this anime. Heck, the recent fight sequences have been on par with what top-tier Japanese animations have to offer.

07. High School of the Dead

High School of the Dead Zombie Anime

High school of the dead is the anime that flexes his animation through smooth oppai movement. The fan service is commendable and while there is a plot, it takes a back seat and lets the fan service and the action lead the way. It all happens one day when a zombie epidemic breaks out of nowhere.

Not many survived. Among the few survivors of a considerable high school, there is a young boy, his friend, his best friend’s girlfriend, a couple more girls, and some others.

They spent most of their time trying to defend themselves from the zombies and securing new hideouts. Plus, there’s a sequel OVA to this series which takes the fan service even further beyond.

06. Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress zombie anime Zombie Anime

This anime is something of an attack on titan itself. No, seriously, if you’re just considering the base premise, nothing much separates it from the critically acclaimed attack on titan. Though I’d be lying if I said that they are the same thing.

In this anime, zombie-like creatures called Kabane have forced civilization to partially live in isolation. Then there is an engineer named Ikoma. These Kabane gets on his nerves like nothing else. If he could, he’d throw them all into a blender and then press the button, but he can’t.

In fact, sooner rather than later, before the boy could use his weapon to exterminate them, something happens that triggers him to take a half-human half Kabane autonomy. If you’re looking for light fantasy comedy, I’d say this anime definitely checks the boxes.

IMDB(7.2)

Dubbed – Yes

Season – 1(12 Ep.)


05. Sunday Without God

Sunday Without God Zombie Anime

The inhabitants of the world of this story are in a severe dilemma. God has just straight up abandoned the world. Now, life can neither end nor be created. The dead have no choice but to constantly keep walking amongst the living.

She has taken up this responsibility in the steed of her late mother, but one day a mysterious man appears and kills everyone in her village. Since Ai had nothing else to do, she decided to accompany the man on his travels. Little does she know this fellow is her father.

He obviously dies though this isn’t the end. A moment later, he opens his eyes yet again only to find a strange girl right next to him.

It includes the club president, the club advisor, a couple of other girls, and their dog. All of them live at school. Yes, there’s just one rule of their club to not leave the school premise.

As for why that is the case, you’ll have to find out yourself. Just know this anime is not what it seems to be on the surface.
