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 probably the best manga that I have read up till this point, which admittedly isn't that much, as I just started getting into manga about a month ago. Still, my inexperience with the medium aside, I have read enough stories to know that this one is very special. I honestly assumed that I wouldn't like it because the zombie premise is really old in my opinion, but the virus is possibly the most creative and interesting zombie virus that I have seen and the zombies behave in very interesting ways. The characters are also great, and they have very clear motivations. 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

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

I think that it is must-read manga for horror-fans! (and imo for everyone :P)
When I started to read this manga, I thought that it will be just manga to short my time in the train on my way to university. I expected it to be just an ordinary one about zombies.
And at the start it was this way, but with every chapter I was fascinated more and more, and the plot was more and more unexpected, and I just fell in love with this manga!!! It is funny, scary, touching, sad...
I love not only manga but the characters as well! They are read more

Manga: I Am a Hero
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!

Manga: Deadman Wonderland
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.

Manga: Owari no Seraph
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.

Manga: Mahou Shoujo of the End
Both have to deal with zombies with some scifi elements.

Manga: Area D: Inou Ryouiki
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.

Manga: Gakkougurashi!
For Fort of Apocalypse, it's zombie with madness, coming from reform school aka jail packing with zombie full of boys.
For Gakkougurashi! it's real school packing with zombie, but had more slice of life and some heartwarming event full of girls.
Both had their own type of Story, though basically it is boys/girls meet zombie.
