A mysterious, lethal disease is on the loose worldwide, resulting in a catastrophic death rate of humanity, and the increasing rise of attacks, caused by the living dead.

In Japan, several high school students and a school nurse have banded together to escape Fujimi High School shortly after it was attacked by zombies. The group now attempts to figure who or what was responsible for this plague, and in the meantime, attempt to survive the present apocalypse.

The story is initially narrated through the eyes of Takashi Komuro, one of the students who had survived in the initial outbreak.

After I got bored with watching anime, I started reading manga that wasn't to widely known. One night around 9 p.m., I was scrolling down the list of the website I was using to find something interesting. After checking out a few lame things, I clicked on the Highschool of the Dead. The very first page, bam, zombies attacking big breasted chicks. I was already hooked because I'm total blood and gore fan but I wasn't expecting too much other than a constant bloodfest. By chapter three, I couldn't stop reading at all. While there was still some pretty read more

Highschool of the Dead. A franchise that is as much of a joke as it is a failure. Well, at least, that what some people think. There are a number of people who just can't look past the "bullet dodging boobs" and the apron-wearing, breast smother antics of the series' heroines. As a former member of that mindset, I at first could not stomach the cheesiness of the work, simply because I thought it had no substance. However, after read more

Cage of Eden is basically like Highschool of the Dead except, you know, better. Though both manga are set in a world of fantasy, CoE has a much more realistic tone to it. The characters are generally more likable, realistic, and relatable. Plus, I appreciate the fact that though both are kinda ecchi, the girls in CoE have breasts that, though still rather large, are not as ridiculously sized as it is in HoD (I honestly began to question whether they were really human and not just a pair of boobs with a small head and body attached for decoration). I always find myself going back to CoE to reread it over and over again. Though I admit that when I originally read Highschool of the Dead, it was extremely thrilling and I was totally pulled in, coming back and rereading it again, it just doesn't compare with the complexity and depth you find in CoE. Highschool of the dead is still a pretty great read if you just want something you can breeze through and get some kind of thrill from, but if you want a deeper plot with a great cast of characters that experience significant development, Cage of Eden is your best bet. :]
Zombies. But I am a Hero is far better written and executed. Also, no dumb fanservice.
