Justin Bich-san konnichiwa,

Thank you for your comment.
You have an interesting question.
I would run into the subway station to run away from a steamroller.
There are many stations in Tokyo, and it would be secure to stay underground if the steamroller cannot come to there.

Stay tuned,

Hmm… I’d have to say the odds of a shotgun being found or easily obtainable in Japan would be pretty low, my number 1 question would be where the nearest construction site is to secure a steamroller.

Megan Somers-san konnnichiwa,

Thank you for your comment.
The typo of “gruesome” was fixed.

As for zombies, it is considered as scary things even in Japan. Similarly to other cultures, zombies can be funny, can be scary.
You can find some Japanese zombie movies on the page “ゾンビ映画の一覧” (Zonbi eiga no ichiran, meaning “the list of zombie movies”), on Wikipedia in Japanese.

Here are the title you’d like to know.
“Warm Bodies” - 『ウォーム・ボディーズ―ゾンビRの物語』 (Wōmu Bodīzu - zombi Āru no monogatari)
“Fear the Walking Dead” - 『フィアー・ザ・ウォーキング・デッド』
“[Rec]” ー 『REC/レック』
“Quarantine”, the movie inspired by [Rec] - 『REC:レック/ザ・クアランティン』

and the vocabulary and phrases.
“Quarantine” “Isolation” - 隔離
Patient Zero - Probably this does not have Japanese yet.
bite/zombie bite - ゾンビにかまれた痕
“He’s/She’s been bitten!” or “They’ve been bitten!” - [someone]は噛まれた。
walking slowly/shambling - ゆっくり歩く
“Are you alive?” ー literally, まだ生きてる?
“Where is a safe place/shelter?” - 安全な場所/シェルターはどこだ?
“Hello? Please help me. I’m alive. I have not been bitten.” - 助けて。(僕/私は)まだ噛まれていない
How many people are alive? - 何人生きている?
zombie horde/horde of zombies - ゾンビの群れ
safe colony - 安全な街
running water - 流水(りゅうすい)or 流れる水
EMT (emergency medical technician) - 救命士
disinfect/disinfectant - 消毒
carrier - 宿主
medium - 媒体 or 霊媒
medium of infection - 感染媒体
reanimated corpse - 蘇った死者(よみがえったししゃ)

The vocabulary other than those above, you can look up at Japanese Dictionary.
Please check them out.

Are zombies considered scary in Japanese culture? They’re not, right? Why is that?

I don’t have a favorite classic zombie movie, but I liked Warm Bodies. It was a novel by Isaac Marion and also a movie. That had a Romeo and Juliet twist between zombies and humans. What’s the Japanese title of the novel/movie?

I guess I like The Walking Dead TV series, too.I like the prequel series, too. The series is called Fear the Walking Dead. What’s this in Japanese

I also liked the Spanish horror films in the Rec [Record] series that inspired the American horror films “Quarantine” and “Quarantine 2. What are the names of these movies [Rec] and “Quarantine” in Japanese? What’s the word for “Quarantine” and “Isolation” in Japanese?

What are the following words in Japanese:

Patient Zero
bite/zombie bite
bitten
“He’s/She’s been bitten!” or “They’ve been bitten!”
walking slowly/shambling
“Are you alive?”
“Where is a safe place/shelter?”
“Hello? Please help me. I’m alive. I have not been bitten.”
How many people are alive?
Food
Water
Drinks
safety
help
“Help!”
guns
rifles
weapons
zombie horde/horde of zombies
pregnant/pregnancy
children/child
babies/baby
man/men
woman/women
safe colony
civilization
[Names of places, cities, towns, landmarks, mountains, etc….]
electricity
power
running water
plumbing
toilet/bathroom
sick/sickness
illness
medicine
medical supplies
doctor
nurse
EMT
disinfect/disinfectant
carrier
medium
medium of infection
rot/rotting/rotten
flesh
brains
bone
decay/decaying/decay
organs
blood
body
corpse
reanimated corpse

Also, there was a mistake in the list for foe the word “gruesome”. Only the original text without the kana help was give. This word here: 恐ろしい (i-adj) (gruesome). How do you write it in hiragana? I can’t read kanji very well yet, thank you.

Are there any good Japanese zombie movies that aren’t parody or horror-comedy? Because zombies aren’t scary in Japan, it seems like zombies movies are just mostly something to make fun of there.

Are there any youkai/obake/ghost Japanese movies that are similar in concept to the western zombie movies? Or, any that are just good? 😄

ゾンビなら、「散弾銃」は定番の単語だと思います。散弾銃がなかったら、生き残っている可能性が低いと思います。
皆さん、ゾンビアポカリプスの準備ができていますか。もうすぐ来ますよ。頑張ってくださいね。

When it comes to zombies, I think the word 散弾銃 (shotgun) is staple vocabulary. I’d say without your shotgun, your chances of survival are low in a zombie situation. Is everyone prepared for the zombie apocalypse? It will be on us soon, you know. Good luck!
