Synopsis

What can you do when you get mistaken for murder? Nothing. You go to prison. Lucky you, your inmates are some of the biggest cutthroats in the prison. Seriously you are lucky. Especially when zombies attack.

Apocalypse no Toride is an amazing manga, and is certainly the best of the genre.
This already fully describes this perfect manga, which quenched my desire for a perfect seinen about Zombies, in my search i came to read good titles, like paused Highschool Of the Dead and Zombie Hunter, but still was not satisfied with something that was really a manga with the essence of something that passes the terror that was innovative and without cliches until i came across in Apocalypse no Toride.
The story is set in a juvenile reformatory and our protagonist is sent there after being falsely accused of an assassination, he read more

Apocalypse no Toride is what "Highschool of The Dead" was supposed to be. It's scary, intense, bloody, and gruesome.

Story: 3
The story is a bit bland. The main character gets sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit and gets stuck with assholes, murderers, delinquents, and psychopaths. Then- zombies attack. That pretty much sums up the whole plot. Zombies attack and the four main characters have to survive. Yep.

Art: 9
The art is glorious, the monsters are hideous, and no fan service in this manga. You don't see monster boobs flying everywhere all over the page. No, the art actually makes you read more

What do we need to unite people.. the answer can be either or both of these two -- common enemy and evil ruler(tyrant/dictator). A good example of each is Code Geass(tyrant/dictator) and Shingeki no Kyojin(common enemy). So now let's take a look at this manga - Apocalypse no Toride. The characters were juvenile criminals which have a common enemy i.e. ZOMBIES!!! Will they be united to fight the zombies or die greedily.

Now, I'm gonna point out the interesting parts of this manga
1. The characters were juvenile criminals. At their young age they already committed a crime, and not just a simple crime, most of them read more

I've caught up to the manga (I think I'm on volume six if chapter 26 was the last of volume five) and I've got to say it definitely has my attention. It's pretty gory, and unlike HOTD (sorry to compare but I will) I think I prefer Fort of Apocalypse. HOTD is almost what I want: zombies and action, a great plot would be nice too, but what seriously killed it is the ecchi. This has virtually nothing perverted except when they introduce the one female character and she has a big chest, but no fan service YET.

Story: 8

It's annoying when people bash on read more

A world under threat by a zombie menace, it is easy to get carried away with reading in horror and awe as our protagonists find themselves in a prison during the zombie apocalypse, with the world already in ruins the sheer action and suspense provides a fast paced view on how the zombie apocalypse could have occurred in a prison, with elements such as power struggles and slow response times similar to what is seen in I Am a Hero, as well as the constant struggle of whether or not to kill those zombies that may still have a hope of living!
Despite the fact that both series don't share a similar focus about zombie, there are some similarities I noticed when I first read Apocalypse no Toride.

+ Both protagonists are weak (atleast in the beginning)
+ They were also wrongly accused of a crime they did't committed, which got them thrown in prisons.
+ The events happened after that would completely change their lives forever as they try to survive and adapt to their new environments.
Both have to deal with zombies with some scifi elements.
While both events are set in apocalyptic worlds, both of these works focus on the concept of survival. The main difference between them is that one is about Vampires, while the other is on Zombies. However, both of them are still a very good read and I recommend it to any fan who loves action.

A weakling is sent to a prison where he teams up with stronger inmates to fight for survival, he finds his place among his new friends and by sticking together they manage to survive their harsh new environment.
If you like living dead stories, you should definitely give Apocalypse no Toride a try. It is a very good manga, with an original story which is different from what zombie stories usually are. On the opposite, Manga of the dead is not worth reading.
