This is actually really good. I came here for the "plot", and it gave me that plus an actual plot. MC isn't some dumb teen, he's a adult who actually uses his head. Aya-chan best girl/wife.

A zombie apocalypse novel that actually has a plot that is accompanying the usual 'plot'. The former is actually quite decent; the latter, not so much, which showcased the author's mediocre skills on that area.

Aya-chan best daughter. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

edit at completion: THe ending is terribBAD; no consecutive ⭐⭐ chapters at all.

edit again: Ok, the novel does end with a ⭐⭐ chapter, therefore ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ for this novel.

Lewd s*x scenes are okay.

The basic premise is okay.

Translation is freaking terrible. To the point where I can't complain about many other things because I'm not sure if it's being conveyed correctly from the source. Is the MC a simple retard or the authors attempt at a typical japanese protag? Because he really feels like he's a retard, not as an insult as in literally slow minded and simple. Lots of minor continuity errors like how the zombies will eventually die of starvation because their metabolism is still moving that... more>> is mentioned several times as how humanity just has to outlast the zombies. Yet it must be 6 months later now there's no mention of zombies starving to death or looking haggard. But I'm just not sure if it's something the author did on purpose or a typical web novel oversight due to the translation. Same with the many situations of we did X because we were worried about Y yet Y suddenly becomes ignored as the author does what he wants or Y is just extremely arbitrary.

The MCs... experiments... are really f**ked up if you will pardon my french. Again due to the translation I'm not sure if it's being conveyed correctly, but even past that filter it was just painful to read and also felt like a very badly thought out experiment. And than the results are just ignored for the most part since he never tries to make use of the findings on any other zombies later on (never looks for any that don't have obvious injuries). That entire mini arc is very much just wtf.


His semen cures zombies, and his blood ends up killing them. I really want to know what would happen if a male was bitten in front of him or if a 400 pound ugly old lady was. Not because that's my kink, but because somehow it's always a s*xy middle or highschooler that it happens to...

What can I say? The ending left me very fulfilled this journey of 2 years reading this novel albeit every wait for updates and the times of hiatus even so every moment, scenes and actions will leave impression of this novel to your brain.

Say what might be a half-hearted ending but it really leaves a good impression for novels like this.

Why 5 stars?

... more>> -Good Plot
-Good Execution
-Good Translator
-Good Ending

Bad sides
-A little bit rushed but not that it effects the plot too much
-The male side character that is very important to this story is a very much down-played but it really does amplifies the male protagonist on our side

So yeah 5 stars boi :) <<less

Not and easy read but not a bad one. Something to read quickly if nothing else around.

Edit: Gave this a second chance, feel the same way, speed read it up till 61. Don't know if its the translation or the author It's just unreadable. MC does not help with his "Oh?" "Ah..." "Eh..." followed by some dribble.

Maybe someday we will get a solid zombie erotica.

Finished it.

Great s*x scenes, the personalities of the girls are unique in their own way and its easy to bring them to life using the reader's imagination. If you're here for the "R-18" then you're not wrong picking this.

Not the most solid storyline. Plot holes are everywhere if you look hard enough. The timeline does not make sense. It seems there have been so many time-jumps between different characters perspectives and flashbacks that even the author himself lost track. Well its not like the readers are here for the story... more>> anyway.

The translation if I had to describe it in one word is, "terrible". Its inconsistent, there are a few chapters where it was "okay-ish" that its readable and the small grammar mistakes can be ignored or corrected by the reader in his brain. However majority of the chapters seem to be unedited rough translations and are so difficult to understand that I as a reader had just to use keywords and context clues just to understand what is going on in the scene.

The writing itself seems lacking, there are so many scenes that lacked context clues and were so badly described that its confusing to make sense of the chain of events. For example, you as the reader thought that the characters were still in the school clinic ravaging for supplies when a character suddenly got bitten but then you find out in a latter line that they were already done scavenging and are outside the campus in the backstreet when she was bitten. Then you have to re-imagine the prior events all over again for the succeeding scenes to make sense. Its exhausting.

This kind of work normally gets 1 or 2 stars from me but I'll give it 3 stars because it clearly delivers its reader's expectations especially when they read this to fap. Why? Because despite all the bad writing, I notice that the writing gets suddenly better in the s*x scenes. This novel is clearly targeted for fappers and not the story goers so 3 stars.... <<less

The first half was dreadful to read, very poor translation. It got better as it went on tho. If it was a bit longer with a better translator it would be about 4 or 5.

The concept is ok. But the fact that the translation gets worse and worse as the author gets more nervous as he realizes he never had any idea for plot or anything. So in the end the author judt forcefully gives an ending and chops the head of this series. At least I hope he learns something from this and learn to develop plot better instead of never touching on it.

there was so many possibilities for plot, but he was so bad he just gave up and left

Hmm lets see, all reader of machine bread translation would know what kind of story they're are translated xD so dont expect so much plot. Just hope for good ero content.

Start things world face zombie apocalypse, and MC got his own way power to fight and cure a zombie with ero way. Then MC try build zombie harem with the help of plot armor. There's a arc where the story focus on background plot but tbh it was fell bland to read for me, but yah this actually have a... more>> plot kek.

so far its decent ero content, we also got some ilustration in some chapter too. <<less

Before you read, take note that Machine Sliced Bread redid the translation starting from chapter 1 so start there instead of reading from the first translator (which is horrible mtl stuff). That said, I was surprised there was still some minor problems with the translation - sentence structure. Still, very readable, just that I usually find their translations good.

When it comes to the actual story - don't read this if you haven't read the three recommendations above - they're in the same ero zombie genre and much much better than... more>> this story. This one is just plain, not as immersive or interesting as the others. <<less
