YMMV / I Am a Hero

  • Author Avatar:The protagonist Hideo Suzuki resembles that of series creator Kengo Hanazawa
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Some people have trouble killing their undead friends. Mitani beats the tar out of them while venting all the complaints he had about them in life.
  • Moe: Hiromi. She's just so sweet and shy! Even while infected!
  • Memetic Badass: Kurusu. The original one. It is through his influence that many of the neets and shut-in not only survive, but band together to try and fight against the zombies.
  • Narm Charm: The ridiculous facial expressions the living and undead alike make.
  • Slow-Paced Beginning: The author spends the first 200 pages describing Hideo's life and state of mind. After that, the story's pace picks up very quickly.
  • Squick: As a long running manga about zombies, this series is bound to have a lot of it. Special mention goes to Tetsuko apparently being on her period as a zombie, Iura ripping off his penis while masturbating, and the zombified pregnant woman dragged along by the baby halfway out of her vagina.
  • Tear Jerker: "Please don't look at my face."
    • "...Kun... Thank God you're alive..."
