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 still don't get the appeal of this series. The show seems to be 5% zombies, 95% cleavage, and this time around, it was 95% cleavage, 5% unusual sex situations.
I mean, I guess I enjoyed it... but there is no story line anywhere in this OVA.
Okay, so technically there was a story line, but it's somewhat difficult to extract.
The odd thing is that if I tell you the story line, I spoil the OVA.
Well, I'll try.
Yes, I gave it a one.
The group comes to an island where they're supposedly safe from the zombies.. typical, right? In this scenario, you would expect to see, a la the conclusion of Dawn of the Dead, that there are zombies in their haven, but zombies play no part in this episode.
They play a very, very, very small part toward the end, but that's not what this episode is about. As I've said, it's very, very difficult to specify any plot worth mentioning.
The art isn't exceptional, but it's certainly not worth faulting either.
I'm somewhat attached to the opening theme. Highschool of the Dead has a decent OP.
Unfortunately, I can't say much more than that, as neither of the above played a strong part in this episode.
I guess there was a little girl (Alice Maresato)... but wait, where did she go?
In this episode, there's no character development. Nobody changes, and there's really nothing to differentiate any of the females from one another. Granted, Saya Takagi stands out as the reluctant, tough-as-nails personality of the group (euphemism for being a total bitch), but really... if you're expecting a character masterpiece, don't come here.
Why did I enjoy this? I almost feel bad for it, but there were times when it was moderately humorous. And there were boobs. And I got to see the awesome boobage they censored in episode 6.
And despite having no character development, no real plot, and leaving me wondering what I just watched, this was moderately enjoyable.
Nevertheless, I like my anime to have an actual plot, and I'm sad that they're not doing anything with this anime when there's so much potential. I'm not saying don't watch it. I'm only saying be wary. read more
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.
