sadly i only just finished this anime, and i had never heard of it before my brother told me about it.

Story:
Ok, so just so everyone is on the same page and I don’t have to ruin anything, at the start of this anime everyone on Earth lives underground. No one has every seen the sky and everyone believes that there is nothing above the cave roof but more rock. At the beginning of this anime we are introduced to Simon the digger. Simon works to help build out the caves so that the people of the village can expand. He loves working as he gets to find cool things buried in the ground but he is also a little apprehensive, especially during earthquakes, because his parents died in a tunnel collapse. His life and those of the villagers are changed one day when a giant robot falls through the roof. Simon and his brother Kamina go to the surface and learn that gun men are what were causing the earthquakes and that there job is to exterminate any humans that are on the surface. This is the start of an epic battle between the humans on the surface and the beast men that pilot the gun men.

Recommendation for Kore Wa Zombie Desuka?

Sorry this is late its the first recommendation I have done so I had parts that I didn’t know how to write the way it was in my head.

Kore Wa Zombie Desu ka?(aka これはゾンビですか?)
Available in English sub
Comedy, Fantasy, Harem, Magic, Parody, Shounen, Vampire
Watch it free here:
Anime Season

zombie desu ka?

Story so far:
As the title suggests, this is a story revolves around a zombie. Aikawa Ayumu was killed by a serial killer.  By pure luck he had met and entertained a necromancer earlier that day who brought him back to life. Things start to go back to normal, or as normal as a zombie going to school and coming home to a mute girl necromancer can be, until another strange girl turns up while he is relaxing in a grave yard. It turns out that not only is he a zombie but he has stolen magical powers from this new girl to become a Mahou Shoujo, which is quite hilarious. Haruna, the magical girl, then starts staying with him as well. Then yet anouther girl shows up in the picture, this time its a vampire ninja (that’s right a ninja not a pirate so ha). She fights Aikawa (also in the graveyard) and losses pledging to be his servant sense he is Eucliwood HELLSYTHE’s servant. Thou she still thinks of him as less then crap.

As he his playing one of his games he gets a message from someone and takes it as a challenge to his title.
