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?'
(they did)
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.

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.

This OVA is just fucking gross, and I immediately lost a lot of respect for the female cast of Highschool of the Dead after enduring it.

This OVA is the beach episode of the Highschool of the Dead series, so you'd expect some fanservice, right? Well, this borderlines on softcore porn. Even as a person who doesn't mind fanservice and can take a great deal of it and still take something seriously, this is just disgusting and wrong. A good deal of the 15-minute OVA is the female characters having fun on the beach while the boys are trying to hunt. Is this done in 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.

Story- 1
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, read more

Anime: Naoko no Tropic Angel: Hyouryuu
Group with majority of girls gets on an island. Sexual situations intensifies. While Highschool of the Dead: Drifters of the Dead is heavy ecchi, Naoko no Tropic Angel: Hyouryuu is hentai.

Anime: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kira
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.

Anime: Toaru Kagaku no Railgun: Entenka no Satsuei Model mo Raku Ja Arimasen wa ne.
Both are on a beach, and have similar moments, but HOTD is a lot more intense and graphic than To aru :Railgun OVA. both are very ecchi

Anime: 11eyes: Momoiro Genmutan
Equally full of fan service despite salvageable content in the parent series.
