SynopsisAn OVA of Highschool of the Dead bundled with the 7th manga volume.

If your expecting something big with high-end explosive action and a riveting zombie-apocalypse story, this is not for you.....but if your looking for an add-on to 2010's all-breast soft-porn material that was High School of the Dead then look no further as I can gladly recommend this short OVA which is titled H.O.T.D: Drifters of the Dead.
For all the hype that H.O.T.D received in 2010, you either were 'anti- or for' the franchise and all I can say after watching this short 16 minute episode is that for those who were anti-; Drifters of the Dead is just going to add fuel to your fire.
Drifters of the Dead DOES NOT add to the story. It DOES NOT continue from where they last left off in the TV series. What it does give us is a short clip of the cast being drifted to an island where we get to see more breasts jiggle then a tub of jelly.
As an alpha male, I see nothing wrong with that. I knew what I was going to get into after having seen the TV series, and I was pretty much correct after seeing some nipple action in the first few minutes of the clip.
So how does the OVA fair?
Am I being generous? VERY. read more
I dont really understand why i picked Highschool of the Dead: Drifters of the Dead as my first anime to review. Its probably because i watched all of HotD in one sitting and my brain isnt functioning properly anymore. Bear with me.
Drifters of the Dead is basically the studio behind the most titillating non-hentai-anime in recent memory going 'maybe we didnt deliver enough on the boobs?'
And then they made a beach episode.
So we can have even less plot and even more fanservice than in the regular series. Sure, why not.
Story - 2
Does this OVA continue the open ended story of the series? Nope.
Is it relevant to the plot ? Nah.
Is it worth watching at all? Well, its only sixteen minutes long, so you may as well.
Its all lighthearted and there are some jokes, but i feel as if the 'secluded island+zombies' setup coudve been used for something cool and it wasnt. Actually, there are no zombies anywhere in this episode, except for a very short scene in the end where they are used for a somewhat unsettling joke.
Characters - 3
The characters are as stereotypical as ever and of course there is no character developement at all, but hey, at least you might get a kick out of it if shipping Komuro and Busujima is really important to you for whatever reason.
Art - 7
Its all pretty solid. The colors pop nicely and the general artstyle is clean and nice to look at. Of course it doesnt have some of the impressively animated action scenes of the regular series, but otherwise there isnt much to complain about. Also, boobs.
Sound - 6
The OP is still pretty good and the voice actors do a solid job. Not much to say really.
Enjoyment - 5
Its just about the right length for a short wank. And there are some mildly funny scenes.
Overall - 4
Watch it if you like the regular series or anime boobs or if you are really really bored.

To me both "High School of the Dead: Drifters of the Dead" and "Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Kira" are a bunch of what if's to the whole story far from their original intention. Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Kira, however is a type of OVA w/ multiple short stories, while HOTD Drifters of the Dead only focuses on one story. One similarity between the two is the use of fan service, however HOTD Drifters of the Dead does obviously contain a much more mature type of this fan service.
