* The orgybus. WHy? Just... why? In real-life crisis situations, people don't act like that. They don't decide to immediately abandon their loved ones and kill their classmates so they can have an orgy on a bus. Seriously, there is no reason whatsoever for the students to act like that.

**fangs in Japan are seen as youthful, Saya seems to start out as immature maybe the fang represent that as I noticed in the later chapters of the manga they don't use the fang as much as she matures.

** Also, how do "they" always know exactly where to bite? If "they" truly only respond to sound and not touch, how did the one that bit Rei's boyfriend(this troper forgot his name, he's kind of forgettable) know where his arm was?

******* The series' author has directly stated that these zombies are purely supernatural beings. He made this choice to get around the ugly ethical implications of killing plague victims en masse.

** [[WorldWarZ World War Z]] addressed some of those same problems. When dealing with an epidemic, there's the need to try and sift the infected but not dead yet from the healthy. If you have safe zones established, you don't want to accidentally let in an infected person. While they could try and find a way to sift healthy individuals, in a rush or crowd, that's not realistic. It's one of those 'I did what I had to do' moments.

**** At that point in the series Hisashi did not know that they were undead zombies. He probably wouldn't kill a random stranger just because he could, restraining them and proving you are stronger would've probably been enough to make a rational person think twice about attacking without unnecessary bloodshed.

** The world is in crisis, some idiot, or an automated system could have been triggered to fire nuclear warheads, for all we know it came from North Korea. All that matters is that it happened.

** If the zombies could only react based on sound and heat, then a long spear could kill most zombies with no issue, just stab into their eye, they won't notice, and if the spear is long enough they won't sense your heat in the daylight either. The zombies are just a device used to set the setting and atmosphere they don't need to adhere to the rules else the story would get boring.
