What Was Thomas More's?
Saeko confides in Takashi that she was once almost sexually assaulted, but was able to fight back with her bokken and ended up breaking several of the attacker's bones before the police came.
Although Takashi says it was self-defense, Saeko counters saying that it is her "raw nature" to take pleasure in inflicting pain and, in that way, she is no different than one of the zombies. She struggles with this part of her character and even considers giving up to "them", until Takashi helps restore her confidence.
Saeko initially uses her bokken to fight, but upgrades to a katana when they stop at a shinto temple and then again at the Takagi estate. Saeko was featured along with Rei in some cross-over illustrations for Triage X and Lollipop Chainsaw , the latter of which features her purple high school uniform as a downloadable content costume.
She is the daughter of an influential Uyoku dantai right-wing politician. A self-proclaimed genius, Saya uses her knowledge and deductive capabilities to help the group escape from harm, being among the first to conclude that "they" were attracted to only sound.
Despite coming from a prestigious family, she despised her parents, who she thought had given up on finding her, but reconciles with them during the raid on the family estate.
She detests that her family servants and related people only call her by her last name and never look her in the eyes when speaking to her. The exceptions to this are Kohta, whom she has a strange friendship with, and Takashi, who is her childhood friend. Saya watches over Alice like a guardian and insists Alice call her with the "-sama" honorific. She scolds anyone who would attempt to tarnish Alice's innocence to any degree.
She uses an electric drill in early chapters of the series, then acquires a Luger P08 pistol. The rest of the group, including Saya, support him. At the shopping mall, Kohta develops feelings for the police officer trainee, Asami Nakaoka , after helping her subdue an angry mall survivor.
He spends some quality time with her, and convinces her to join the group. Unfortunately, the friendship is short-lived when Asami becomes trapped while attempting to save a boy in the parking lot. She shouts for Kohta to make it so that she will not become a zombie and cause pain to others around her.
Kohta kills her and later finds himself in shock, but he is set straight by Shizuka, who uses a psychology trick of ordering him around like a sergeant.
Kohta uses a variety of firearms; he favors the AR illegally modified to resemble an SR , which he uses to take out targets from a distance. He is based on Kouta Hirano , creator of the Hellsing manga. At the beginning of the story, Marikawa is nearly killed by a student-turned-zombie but is saved by Saeko Busujima.
She has a rather ditsy personality, and her large bust size is often used as a comical element in the story. The group uses Rika's apartment to rest after they escape the high school. She reveals to Takashi Komuro that she is just a temporary school nurse, and that she is still taking classes and training.
In the English dub of the anime, she goes by the name Arisu. He refers to the zombies as "them" since they are not quite like the ones seen in movies, and that becomes the name for any zombies the main group encounters in the series. On the way out of class, he is bitten by an infected teacher.
After rising as one of "them", Takashi delivers a fatal blow to his head. Rei Miyamoto is disgusted by him and Saeko Busujima says his name with a scowl, which hints of his villainous character, which is affirmed when he leaves behind a student who sprained his ankle and even kicks him back towards a group of pursuing zombies, and says there is no point in keeping weaklings alive.
Saya and Saeko comment that Shido's actions are like that of a recruiter for a religious cult. Shido permits the main group to leave the bus except for Shizuka, but Kohta expresses his disapproval of Shido's actions and grazes Shido's face with a nail gun shot.
He finds this behavior acceptable during the group's "free time". Shido declares his followers "angels that will help usher in a new age", but when Yamada disagrees and shows concern for his own family, Shido convinces his followers to eject the "weak link" for the sake of the New World, and they callously throw the teen off the bus and leave him to be eaten by "them". Koichi Shido is the son of Ichiro Shido, a politician. In the manga, when Koichi's mother dies, he becomes a teacher at Tokonosu where his father is a director, but his father reveals he has an illegitimate son, and forces him to work in the shady family business.
When Rei threatens to kill Shido with her bayonet, Shido dares her to do it, but she cannot, as he is not worth the trouble. Soichiro orders Shido and his student followers to leave, and he complies, but a high-altitude nuclear explosion causes both the bus and nearby forklift with a concrete barrier to stall and they collide.
He recovers consciousness in time to see the undead horde that advances through the gap in the barrier. Shido reappears at the entrance to Shintoko Third Elementary School, which is a gathering point for some of the survivors. She is friends with Shizuka Marikawa , and lets her house-sit when she goes on assignments.
At the airport mission, her partner sacrifices himself by using jet fuel in a tanker to immolate the zombies. She manages to get in contact with Shizuka, who informs her that they "stayed over and borrowed her weapons and things," before the communication is cut by an EMP surge. He showed his leadership to the survivors when he rallies them to kill the zombies in order to save Japanese society from collapsing, and publicly kills his zombified subordinate.
Soichiro seems to be a sword expert: Later he entrusts Saeko with a katana made with military-grade steel at an industrial weapons factory. When the zombies breach the estate, he and his troops fight them off. While the Takagis and the rest of the estate survivors fight against the horde, Soichiro comments that they are proud of their daughter and the friends she has made. The Takagi family fortune rose significantly due to her business connections.
When the zombies breach the estate, she gives Saya her Luger P08 pistol , and then proceeds to assist her husband in fighting the horde. When Yamada questions Shido, Yuuki suggests they kick him off the bus.
