    I think he's referring to Shizuka in the infamous bath scene during the quick recap at the beginning of the episode - which incidentally was some pretty good self-aware humor in itself.



    I was under the impression that we did see Takashi's hallucination since they find him fending off the zombies in the same place he was hallucinating about Saeko before. Rei and Saeko were apparently just making out on the beach the whole time.
    Yeah, but why were rei and saeko making out on the beach? I honestly think that was caused by saeko's hallucination, but its really confusing. But watch the end of the video, the girls line up staring at takashi as he is twitching on the ground. He is saying stuff like, "Not there, im only human, cant take much more of this." and stuff like that. They seem to think he is dreaming of all of them, then we see him fending off zombie versions of the girls, while the real girls are hanging back with their faces twitching away. He was hallucinating the zombie girls.

    How I saw it:

    Saeko hallucinates Making out with Takeshi. She's really with Rei.

    Rei hallucinates Making out with Takeshi. She's really with Saeko.

    Takeshi hallucinates that Saeko drags him off and makes out with him. He's with nobody.

    4 female Zombies find Takeshi. Takeshi hallucinates that they are the 4 girls in the party.

    A tunnel connects the island to the mainland. That tunnel is how the Zombies got there, and why they cannot stay on the island.

    But the real girls were standing there watching him. Do you really think they would have just been standing there watching as he struggles to hold off 4 zombies all by himself? At the end, one of the girls, i forget which one, visibly loses her temper, picks up her gun, then the next thing we see is one of these "zombies" avoid his foot and slam head first into his crotch. To me that means the real girls thought he was having a sexy dream of sex with all of them at once. He was hallucinating fighting off zombie versions of the girls. And much like how the girls hallucinations used what was going on, like their tops being removed, as part of their visions, takeshi used the fact that one of the girls just slammed her rifle butt into his sack as thinking one of the zombie girls got past his defense and nailed him head first.

    So what, may I ask, was Takeshi holding that his mind turned into the zombies? Because all of the other hallucinations had someone (or something, in one case) that was mistaken for someone else.

    At best, it's ambiguous. But the fact that they look for, much less find a tunnel that connects to the mainland suggests that, in fact, the Zombies were really there.

    There's also the fact that Alice came running to get them instead of calmly going "hey, Takeshi is still under the influence."

    Ok, so I am watching the video again,I didnt realize the mention of the tunnel is on the last 20 seconds of the episode, after the credits are over. I still think its freaking weird that the girls are just standing there watching him fend off 4 zombie bikini girls while he is hallucinating they are the girls in his group. Its also very very strange to wonder exactly how long was he holding off FOUR zombies at once without taking a single bite.

    It's the end of the world: a virus that turns people into the walking dead who feast on the flesh of the living has been unleashed and things are rapidly going to hell. The plague strikes Fujimi High School, where unlikely hero Komuro, genius Saya, estranged love interest Rei, sword-wielding Busujima, Hirano the gun otaku and a school nurse of below-average intelligence need to escape the school and head for the city, where their parents might still be alive.
