  1. I am so glad to read that nothing has changed in Japan since I left ten years ago. Appreciate your sharing this zombie warning.

  2. WOrking in Japan just bores the hell out of me. This place is just too full of salaryman zombies. If I really wanted to see zombies dying, blood, gore guts, brains in teeth, etc., I word just watch the Waking Dead on video. I want to see people jumping up and screaming, “KILL KILL! KILL!”

  3. The general lack of intelligence of zombies is a shame. I suppose the Zombie virus that causes hairloss, skin reactions, and loss of pigmentation also makes them stupid but it just does not look scary. =(
    (Sven though I am one of those ppl who jump at everything.)

  4. In this Arcade Game, You Battle Zombie… Schoolgirls
    Kotaku | 2014feb07zombie-schoolgirlsNamco Bandai’s newest arcade game is called Sailor Zombie: AKB48 Arcade Edition and stars Japan’s biggest girl group AKB48more...

    Because zombie salarymen are just too obvious…
