It feels like only yesterday that I was selecting a doctor as Waifu of the Week, well, now we have Shizuku Marikawa from Highschool of the Dead. Can you say, “Hello nurse”? I know it wasn’t that long ago that I selected Rei Miyamoto, but that doesn’t mean I can ignore Shizuku any longer, especially after her showing in episode 6.
Shizuku takes on the big sister role of the group of survivors, which is surprising since she is the eldest of the group. That said, she’s not a natural survivor and when asked if she could choose between her clothes and her life, she couldn’t. Luckily, she had Saeko with her to make sure she made it out of the school safely. Shizuku is also a bit of a ditz, but she’s cute and means well.
In episode 6, Shizuku led the group to her friends’ apartment where they finally got to relax, even if only for a little while. It was an ideal moment for the girls to clean up and get refreshed. Of course, this then led to Rei manhandling Shizuku, shocked by the size of her… well, you know! I know you know, so don’t go pretending that you didn’t notice. Anyhow, this series is awesome and Shizuku is a vital part of that.
So, that was Waifu of the Week spot for week 27 and it goes to Highschool of the Dead once more. If you enjoy zombie shows, then this is outstanding. It has far more to it that just some of the most insane ecchi moments ever. The characters and the world are put together with such style and finesse that really is one of the best. Of course, being here, you probably like ecchi too, and boy does this series have some eye-popping moments. Check out the episode highlights for even more images.
