Is Sera's Tsubamegaeshi a Shout-Out to Fate/stay night? Tsubame Gaeshi is a real thing but it's actually a judo throw and I think Assassin in Fate/stay night is the only other person who uses it as a sword technique.

The new season is called 「これはゾンビですか? 地獄変」 "Is this a zombie? Strange hell" The Kanji used are 地獄 (Jingoku, meaning "hell") and 変 (hen, meaning "weird, strange and change"). The 変 kanji is the first kanji in 変態 (hentai), so it may be a contraction of "perverted hell", but I imagine that's more of a pun than an intentional thing.

Looking up online, there was a mistranslation of "jingokuhen" on My Anime List's forums (based on someone looking "hen" up in a romaji dictionary, I'd wager) — If the kanji for hen was 篇 it would be "hell chapter", but it's not.

Is anyone else just slightly irritated that the fansubs have thoroughly convinced a rather large part of the audience that Sera's trademark insult is "piece of shit" when the word means "dung beetle"? I thought I saw a trope that described something like this once but I can't remember what it's called or I'd put it as an example.

How about another redirect? This time, it's the abbreviation, "Korezom", a nickname I got from The Other Wiki's page on this series.

"Back From The Dead: She actually says she prevented his death, although there's probably no difference."

Considering the information she shared in episode 4, I would think that there is a difference. Yuu prevented HIS death, but in a way she didn't prevent death; she still "died" so to speak when she made Ayumu a zombie.

There has got to be some trope(s) linking this to Fate/stay night, but I'm not sure what to to use. Shout-Out? Expy? There's Yuu's appearance (basically Saber + Dark Sakura), a protagonist who doesn't die when he's killed... You get the idea.
