Seriously. Where are all the translators at. We are hitting an Ebino arc...
Hatsukoi Zombie thread
TL anon said it kills his brain, so who knows
>series is about to get canceled
RIP ebino and her amazing tits
I really dislike this asshole.
He only sees Mei in a lewd light, and that would have been fine, but he is also a spineless bastard who is too afraid to even talk to her, yet gets irrationally angry everytime it looks like she is getting along with someone else.
I really hope this arc isn't about pushing her to him.
I mean, it doesn't help that his character isn't developed much and that we know these Broken Hearted First Love Zombies can cause actual harm. But I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he consciously doesn't try to act like a possessive asshole and these are just his own feelings he's trying to hold back from leaking out until proven otherwise.
Did her bra snap?
Is she still growing?
Also that winter uniform is pretty nice.
Oh I think I get it, in another panel she's imagining some buff guy so I think her own muscles got bigger and that's why, not specifically her tits.
Rather, I think it's specifically her tits, but she thinks she got buff enough to pop her blazer.
So, she thinks Tarou is going to compare her to what I assume is a wrestler(name is "O"'d out and I have no idea who that is).
Dude, love the work you did, but I don't blame you. Last chapter I read was the one that ended with Tarou mishearing the confession.
Nisekoi taught me to abandon ship at the first chance
At the very least I think it's better then Nise Koi.
The art is pretty good and he's done some creative stuff with the way the love zombies look.
Compared to other bottom bin harems I've read HZ is alright.
>Compared to other bottom bin harems I've read HZ is alright.
I definitely agree.
I like Mei better than I liked the heroines in Nisekoi too, but she was the only thing keeping me here.
I don't dislike Ibusuki, but the series was starting to drag and frankly, I didn't even notice I stopped, I just did. Mishearing things was what broke the camel's back to me.
Your talents are better utilized elsewhere.
It doesn't really help that I don't really like many of the characters. I picked this up on a whim and I'm in a situation where I'm evaluating whether or not it's worth my time (aka. Waiting to see if the chapters get any better before I continue).
Personally, I think it's a poorly executed Nisekoi. Both reek of 'keep status quo by all means necessary'. But Zombie antics just feel so contrived and bland whereas Nisekoi was kind of entertaining in a stupid retarded way.
>Personally, I think it's a poorly executed Nisekoi. Both reek of 'keep status quo by all means necessary'. But Zombie antics just feel so contrived and bland whereas Nisekoi was kind of entertaining in a stupid retarded way.
Hm? Really? I've felt the opposite, though. I never really enjoyed Nisekoi, reading it from the start. I just kept on it to have something to kill the time with. On the other hand, I actually do enjoy the antics going on in Hatsukoi Zombie.
It could just be my taste in shitty romcoms. But like, Zombie has some nice moments now and then, like the student council speech. But then you get stuff like great grandpa and I was banging my head on my desk for most of the week. The whole Ibusuki parent thing was like that. Chapter 80 is a literal reaffirmation of the status quo. I mean, it's at the point where boob and ass Amano Megumi is somehow moving faster than Hatsukoi zombie for me.
I think I just need to talk this out a bit then maybe I'll go back to working on it.
> But Zombie antics just feel so contrived and bland whereas Nisekoi was kind of entertaining in a stupid retarded way.
True, now that the Chad is going after Ibusuki as well I don't think I can handle this shit anymore.
This manga is trash. Who isn't?
At this point, Ibusuki and Eve are just annoying. Eve's only character traits are being a manic pixie dream girl and loving Tarou. Ibusuki loves Tarou now, I guess, but acts much in the same way and is just as inactive as Ebino, despite getting stuck into romantic shenanigans with Tarou constantly
Ebino is probably not there yet purely in virtue of not showing up as much AND being miss fanservice.
I read this chapter. Ebino gets pissy when people imply that Tarou should play Juliet to Ibusuki's Romeo, that Tarou likes Ibusuki, and especially when the idea of Tarou and Ibusuki kissing is brought up. That probably means she likes Ibusuki.
Ibusuki on the other hand mutters than she wouldn't mind kissing him.
Yeah, but I was saying since the manga begun.
Ibusuki furstrates me endlessly, she is literally worse than Chitoge. At least once Chitoge fell for Raku, she tried to get closer to him actively and it all would have been tolerable if Raku wasn't such an empty husk.
Ibusuki literally confesses, he hears it wrong and she doesn't even bother repeating or clarifying. That is Onodera-tier uselesness.
Happy she and Tarou will be Romeo and Juliet together.
Basically, the class has lots of couples and crap and they decide to have several Romeos and Juliets. Tarou and Mei get paired off and she is teased by Ryou and DID chick later, prompting her to run from them. After she runs away, Hitoyoshi sees her smiling happily and gets jealous.
Romeo and Juliet is a romance story and that implies romance between them quite heavily. She may have to kiss him. Plus I am not sure why Ibusuki doesn't seem to care about Tarou being paired off since I an 90% Ibusuki likes him.
I worry that Tarou might reject her just so he doesn't have to deal with heartbreak zombies. Ebino might get crushed soon.
The scene was pretty rushed and half-assed, so I can see how ou missed it.
What annoys me about these is that, if she tried to confess, it shows she obviously has a somewhat good grasp on her feelings and has the courage to confess and the desire to get together with him.
So why in the blue hell doesn't she try to clarify it, or say it again, or act at all in the tens of chapters until the next fake-out?
I mean, it's such a blatant way of extending the series. If she knows she likes him and has gathered enough courage to confess once, why wouldn't she try to take a more active role instead of letting the MC improve his relationship with the however many other girls around them?
You should be 100%, the only thing preventing her from dating him is that she doesn't want Eve to disappear, her own Tsun tendencies, her insecurity about her breasts, and the fact that everyone thinks she is a guy.
Once Tarou find out she is a she, we are at end game, the series is done.
Not going to lie, I skipped chapters 68-75.
The manga can end in two chapters with the premise it has. All the author needs to do is blow Ebino the fuck out and deal with Eve. the latter won't be hard as they can just keep her around.
The problem is Ebino.
She basically became the most popular girl and the series unofficial mascot. They are at the point where it would be impossible to give her an arc that resolves her problem and can give her a proper resolution without pissing off her fans.
It will take a delicate touch that I don't think the manga-ka has the skills to do.
The current arc has all the makings of sinking Ebino, or slightly reinforcing her current feelings. I am not sure if this manga is doing better in the rankings, a few months ago it was in the bottom third of the magazine's sales ranking and wasn't doing much better than Keijo (RIP in peace).
With Ebino's popularity I would expect her to get dumped in the final chapter rather than have a good arc about her and Tarou's relationship. I am not sure Ebino will ever realize she likes him. Ibusuki likes him and she know it without any doubts. Normally this is end game time but then I remember Chitoge admitted she was in love with Raku in chapter fucking 50 of Nisekoi.
I vote for keep You know lots of people on a read it, even if it drags.
If nothing else, you get to bring us more Ebino...
For me it's Eve.
Although after this latest arc, where she learned she can touch people, and she didn't immediately molest Tarou.... kinda lost points there
if you do decide to drop it, would it be possible to at least wrap up the arc so that way we're not totally left hanging? but ultimately you're doing this all For Free™ so it's your call
Why doesn't the author just do a Ebino end?
She is so popular that I believe that any end other than a Ebino end or a Eve end would cause major butthurt and would sink the author
This situation reminds me a bit of the gay ass manga with the dude trapped in the mirror.
>due to the set up we know what will happen
>introduce a better girl
>put them in situations
>but you're trapped due to your set up that doesn't let you escape the original outcome
>hate your work
I wonder if we'll get another "fuck this, fuck you guys, I'm not working on this shit again".
Ebino really hasn't been developed. In fact we know very little about her. What she feels for Tarou is up for debate but we know Tarou does not and will not like he. He has Ibusuki and Eve.
I bet you fucks would hate her if she was a secondary girl. I have a suspicion there is a certain population on /a/ that only like side girls no matter what they look like or their personality.
>I have a suspicion there is a certain population on /a/ that only like side girls no matter what they look like or their personality.
I'm guilty of that sometimes but your first paragraph is just straight up shit, or trolling, or both.
We know how she feels about him, but whether she realizes or not it's another thing.
We also know that Tarou does find her attractive and sometimes is a lot into her, hence the chapters when Eve goes "weak" when he interacts too much with Ebino.
>>what is our of context.
Ebino was starting to worry with how close Tarou and Ibusuki were getting. She was afraid that if Ibusuki was a girl,
That it would mean she would have competition for Tarou/ Tarou might fall for Ibusuki and not her.
She is releved Ibusuki is not a girl cuz she thinks that means Tarou won't end up with him/her
Lrn 2 rd
Honestly given how her outfit can change based on Tarous whim, I'm suprised this hasn't become drawfag bait where we see tons of pics of Eve on different outfits
Pic kinda related
Yep, I dropped this series early on around the time the reverse trap was confirmed to be a reverse trap because I could see where the rest of the series was going from there and had no interest in continuing. I also dropped the Masamune-kun manga really early on for this reason. I now just check out these threads every few weeks to look at the pictures, but I have almost no interest in actually following or reading this series anymore.
>I really hope this arc isn't about pushing her to him.
It's literally the only way this arc can end. The entire series is about making first love zombies disappear, so the only way Ebino Z can disappear is if Ebino accepts his love. It'll also wrap up the Ebino plot really neatly by getting her out of Tarou's way and making her unattainable.
Yeah, don't forget that titty monster Mei has hordes of fans. There are some who like her sporty tomboy personality, there are others who like her kindness, but all of them like her because of those gigantic missiles on her chest.
It would be nice to have a guy like her for who she is, but lets not kid ourselves as this guy says >>159627095, Ebino has such a sexy body that she doesn't even need to try and wear normal clothes and she would make her classmates jizz in their pants.
He's just copying me, the original
>Sagiri isn't in love with Fuyuzora
poster. The difference is, Sagiri genuinely wasn't and isn't in love with Fuyuzora. Even in the St. Valentine's Day chapter, she was more concerned with proving the superiority and versatility of her family's traditional Japanese medicines and putting them into chocolate than getting Fuyuzora to care about her.
That's not limited to teenagers, almost everyone has a fear of failure and rejection, especially when it comes to love. You need balls of steel to deal with getting rejected and not letting it bother you on some level.
Would this series have been better with a bigger harem? Like, put more of that yandere virgin hunter in it trying to get Tarou to fall in love with her so she can break him, or make one of the girls he helps fall for him.
No, if anything a big failure has been the focus on the secondary and tertiary cast and not enough on developing the three main characters (Tarou, Ibitsuki, and Ebino).
The series would be better if Ebino realizes she likes Tarou and actually tries challenging Ibitsuki for affection, turning it into a love triangle vs the mess it is now.
It almost feels like TWGOK except that it spends way too much time developing the two love interests that Tarou has to pair up and not enough on Tarou or the girls around him.
Not really, just one of Touma's classmates.
I honestly would be glad if it gets cancelled.
I really only picked it up for Ebino but everything else has been garbage so I dropped it. Now I only come to the threads occasionally for more Ebino pictures.
She's not supposed to be but they hang out a lot.
At the least she doesn't spill her spaghetti around him like the other girls.
Do you think it has a chance to reach 100 chapters?
Place your bets!
Shonen Sunday will be fucked when Magi ends. They only have Conan, Silver Spoon, which should end soon too unless it goes to hiatus again, and their only recent hit is Komi-san.
So, what happens when Ebino finds out that Ibusuki is a girl?
What if she finds out that Ibusuki likes Tarou? What is Ebino doesn't find out she is a girl but finds out "he" loves Tarou?
They should do that, just flip the script for several volumes. It would at least spice things up, or go crazy and have Ebino get the ability to see women's first love zombies from Tarou.
Then she freaks out when she realizes Ibusuki is a girl.
Do as you wish. Can't blame you if you decide to drop it, but I hope you do continue.
I wish Ibuzaki could get BTFO and Roberto Begnini jr. finds a way to be with Eve, but I know better than to get my hopes up.
Thanks for your work Anon san, we understand, it's a shame a great design like Ebino ended up in this series.
Except Ebino is a major character and Fukioyose is a background character who got some screen time in a story arc and then dissipated.
So sure, tomboy, big tits, I see that. But in terms of importance and coverage, not even close.
>Tarou wants to give up Romeo's role for that jealous faggot
Fuck this shit manga.
>>Then she freaks out when she realizes Ibusuki is a girl.
This.... Honestly makes sense.
Tarou headbutts Ebino, granting her powers, just like how he did to ibusuki.
Hell, tie it in to the Romeo and Juliet kiss for extra tension.
>Sunday Heroine Summer Monopoly Fair
>2nd: Suu no Kuuki
>1st: Amano Megumi
>Is this from this werks chapter?
Yeah. It came out very early today.
I'm also and Evefag, but it's still sad.
Fuck, I hope that didn't hurt her. She seemed like it made her happy to be his Juliet.
I did call it that he would do something dickish in order to not have to deal with Ebino heartbreak zombies.
Maybe she just has something in her eyes or there is very localized rain.
Okay, why would a Ebino zombie do that?
Tarou fucked off. Unless this was before he blew her off. I can see why Tarou would do that.
I know it is fun to act but she is getting too into it.
That would make sense. Using Eve to hurt Tarou. I am surprised a first love zombie could do that. Tarou is a man of action and conviction.
So is Ebino out or are they going to make up. She seemed very hurt but since she doesn't know she likes him maybe it will blow over.
I am an Eve fag but now I feel bad for Ebino after seeing
I really hope after or during this arc they find a new way to deal with heartbreak zombies. Their current method of "hook up the lover to their love interest" just doesn't work in the long run.
Look at Ebino. She is responsible for dozens of first love zombies. Tarou can't honestly think he can fix her up with every single guy who lusts after her...
They gotta find a new method. Any theories?
I doubt the arc ends just like this.
Tarou likely realizes he hurts Ebino, and even if he hooks up creeper-kun with Ebino, the dozens of other guys in the school will all have Ebino heartbreak zombies... so he is gonna have to find another way to purify zombies.
And then he realizes he hurt Ebino for no reason and feels like shit. Resulting in apology... and confession?
You can actually pinpoint the second her heart rips in half.
Yeah but do we know that Ebino will just forgive him? Maybe this will be the point where she actually realizes what she feels.
>even if he hooks up creeper-kun with Ebino
Man, that would hurt her even worse and have a 0% chance of becoming a relationship. Ebino is more likely to tell Tarou off forever than to suffer that. I can't imagine what it would be like if someone you loved was actively trying to ship you off.
Creepy's heartbreak zombie is a real menace and maybe, just maybe killing one would be good enough. Plus the others might lose life after a few days.
>Resulting in apology... and confession?
The safest bet is him apologizing, her forgiving him, Ebino then start trying to confess, and something ruins the moment or interrupts her.
He still heard that whole exchange with Ebino Megane, his girfriend. So he knows Ebino is interested at Tarou at that point.
The attack was probably just another Zombie mechanic. Ebino-Z subconsiously attacking Tarou's Zombie, which in this case, is a part-sentient being, as far as we know.
Zombie's are convenient writing tool for a certain mangaka.
I wonder how this will go. Creeper is a massive faggot at this point. Will he reform or realize that his behavior/thoughts are actively making Ebino sad?
>>Will he reform or realize that his behavior/thoughts are actively making Ebino sad?
I wonder. Will the manga go in a "she doesn't love you back-and if you love her, let her go" direction for purifying heartbreak zombies?
Or is that 2deep4u.jpg for this manga
Fuck me I hope this shit gets axed before Ebino has a chance to lose. Fuck this author for writing and drawing such an awesome girl only to have her 100% lose from the beginning.
Part of me wants it to be axed too.
It would sare me the suffering and it's not like the manga has any other redeeming qualities so it wouldn't even be that much of a loss.
There is already a clear lack of interest on the nips part.
Yeah the only characters I have come to enjoy are Ebino, Tarou and Eve. Everyone else just seems sub par in terms of character development and narrative. Fuck me I dont want Ebino to lose or end up with one of those love zombie faggotz, she has such good chemistry with Tarou and is more like Eve than the crossdressing autist.
I know what you mean, but Eve is the series' official heroine.
What I hate the most is that he always bait us with progress and then he goes back to the status quo. If you're not gonna do anything, just don't bait, stay with arcs of Tarou and company helping a zombie.
Are you also implying Komi-san deserves to be that low and the dumb fat big titty NTR bait slut that high?
Wish the author didn't spam characters especially the yandere one which just got on the nerves.
At least people finally see the truth instead of coming under the delusions of "ebino winning." It's clear he cares more about not pissing off his friend than to shit on Ebino.
Anyone who thinks an Ebino end needs to reevaltuate their ship after this.
Agreed, all we know is he is a nice guy on the outside and a total perv on the inside. We literally know nothing else about him.
It is kind of clear that his obsession with Ebino is a little bit more than the other guys. It is one thing to have her as your first crush "oh she has big tities and is cute" vs. "I will kill any man who makes her cry and I want her for me."
There is nothing wrong with that, the problem is that the main girl is the least likable of the entire cast. Heck, even the one off and side characters are more likable than the main girl.
>Comedy School Life Shounen Slice of Life
>Country Bumpkin Moves to City
Some SoL with dumb girl as MC.
Megumi thinks it is about romance. That goes through her head a lot.
As a reader though I don't expect anything of amano, in hatsukoi zombie I expect something. Maybe that is the difference.
Basically just sack Ibusuki. She is literally everything wrong with the series.
>not cute in the slightest, not even when she dresses up
>shitty personality and even still treats Tarou like a nuisance (along with her whole motivation for being there at all is to ruin Tarou's life based on some nonsense speculation that he gave her the ability to see FLZs)
>everyone in the manga fucking loves her for some reason and is trying to put her and Tarou together because she's still stuck in the shitty "N-No, I don't like him despite daydreaming about married life with him" phase
>is a Mary Sue (perfect grades, "stunning looks", rich, talented)
I like her in the role of a friend. As a love interest, she is pretty shitty.
>I have been in love with him since I was 5 yrs old
>I focused my whole personality around him
I hate love interests whose character is entirely reliant on the MC.
I do, she's honestly feels like the only character with any real pathos. I find Eve's growing sentience and the moral implications of it intriguing as a plot device but her as a character doesn't do much for me. Ebino I find utterly boring even more of a cardboard idealized waifu than the literal in-story idealized waifus.
>Ebino is more an idealized waifu
Now that is a fascinating talking point, and I actually agree to a certain extent. If you think about it, they designed her to be perfect is almost every way, she is kind, great with kids, big breasts, athletic, tomboy, great cook, gentle and humble.
All those things wouldn't be part of someone who has large breasts. They basically cut and pasted a perfect girl's personality to a titty monster.
It does explain why people are so defensive about her, and she has a disproportionate amount of fans. She is supposed to be the ideal woman and the ideal sexualized woman in one character. Of course you are supposed to like her, she has no flaws and she is extremely sexual to boot.
I don't disagree about Ebino. At this moment it seems like instead of being fapbait she is going to be the one we feel sorry for and want to support. Very few people actually like seeing a character get crushed like in >>159655025 and >>159655820. I am not sure why Ebino is even in the story, he trials can be popped into almost any other manga. She likes guy but doesn't know it and he is a bit of a dick to her.
I like Ibusuki better too but I can see why people don't like her.
Probably like most women with fake and real large breasts, big aureoles. It happens by nature because bigger breasts needs a bigger "target" for the baby to suckle on, so naturally most women with big breasts have the big areola to match it.
Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. I wonder if this will actually come to play rather than be a complete coincidence. You can't blame me for thinking the author isn't clever enough.
The fact that Ebino is being used now like this shows that the author is trying to win people back. She is mostly sidelined.
To be honest, Ebino's character development now is where she should have been 30 chapter ago. She needs to experience heartbreak to realize she loves him and then make a genuine effort to move from getting "friend-zoned" to being a legitimate "girlfriend candidate" who is being courted for a potential relationship.
She is basically in step 2 in her character development when she should be in step 10.
To be honest, I see this as more of a "hail mary" pass where the manga-ka basically swiveled to Mei, the most popular girl to restore flagging sales of his manga. He is hoping to ride on her popularity to become more relevant in the manga anthology, and to not get cancelled so soon.
Poor sales is probably the kick in the butt to make him realize he just can be coasting, so he is doing character development he should have done a long time ago, but he took it for granted.
There is not enough lewds for me to bother.
Okay, I take that back, even in normal clothes she looks lewd as hell, but there isn't enough revealing lewds for me to do some sort of compilation.
With ebino the current method wouldn't work since there are so many guys (and probably girls) who like her? How would she revolve it, be the school bike everyone rides? Of course not.
To add to that it is implied that she is interested in Tarou. In the previous examples both the boy and girl already liked eachother. Ebino likely likes Tarou so fixing her up with faggot creeper won't work.
I had a chance to read the chapter and it isn't as bad as all you are making it out to be. This is probably the first legit Ebino character development chapter, and it's right off the heels of a pretty important Ririsu development arc.
THIS SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED A LONG TIME AGO.
I was just thinking this arc is set up to cause more extreme emotional reactions from Ebino. Up until now this >>159645350 was the most animated she has been. She was in a rut when it concerned her feelings for Tarou and since she wasn't gradually realizing her feelings she needed a jolt. I haven't read the chapter but I am sure she'll figure out exactly why she is in pain.
Anon, she's just fucking tsun. She just doesn't do anything and tries to deny herself out of respect to the other 3 who are already interested in him.
Time for either him or Ebino to man up about their feelings. Ebino will either reject Hitoyoshi as her Romeo or Tarou will decide not to give it up.
Unless Ebino just decides to accept Hitoyoshi's feelings and Tarou will just watch their relationship grow and fall apart from afar.
The latter won't happen. I think it will just be Ebino realizes she likes him and Tarou figures out some way to get rid of his "friend"'s heartbreak zombie. The arc ends.Maybe Ibusuki becomes a little more aware of Ebino. We know "he" isn't in denial anymore.
Fanservice characters can never ever carry a series all by themselves. There are many examples of series that switched to a fanservice character or spinoff staring a fan favorite that got canned fast.
It's more of a subconscious thing. She shakes her head a lot, pretending that there isn't any significance to things like giving Fuyuzora chocolates, for instance. Seriously, she waits for a excuse to give him chocolates on valentines and "obligation/giri choco" is the perfect fucking chance.
Nothing. Tarou is a faggot, do you guys realize he often gets conscious of Ibuski while not knowing she's actually a girl but thinking she's a guy? He'll be full homo by the end of the manga, and that will be the twist. The mangaka will pull this shit, as kind of a gag-cop out. No one "wins". Screenshot this post.
I have literally seen nothing that shows us more than he is a nice dude who has a dirty mind when it comes to ebino. There is no interaction between them that screams "this dude is my friend."
The banter between Tarou and Ibusuki shows friendship. The banter between him and the other dude, no way.
This is what I hate about lots of manga.
Don't tell me so-and-so character are best friends. Show me in how they interact and talk that they are friends. A good writer doesn't tell you, but lets the audience make the relationship connections through dialog and how they interact.
Legitimately Ebino is the definition of best girl, how can anyone look at her and not want to hold her and make her feel better. She is the perfect mix of attractive, vulnerable, and competent. Most female characters you get at most 2 of these traits. I just want to do pic related with her.
If Tarou wanted to avoid playing Romeo then why didn't he tell Ebino the real reason? That his friend is the jealous types so in order to avoid conflict he is going to distance himself from her. He should insist that he doesn't and never will I'll see Ebino in a romantic lightt.
Reminder that Ebino absolutely doesn't have feelings for Tarou.
If this were a manga where progress happened, he would try to make things right by explaining first love zombies to her and there would be further drama because she'd be mad at him for telling her such a stupid lie. I guess there's one upside to the slavish devotion to the status quo after all.

Okay, because she seemed like she was crushed. I think she really really cared and Tarou didn't think she did. Tarou seemed surprised that she cared. Maybe he will find a different route than usual because he has to make it up to her.
