A blood world filled with paradise where both the main characters find themselves in an irresistible position of being able to own the highest standard of a woman.
'Highschool of the Dead' highlights the struggle for survival when the apocalypse has arrived. In the midst of such danger, desires arise in the most unpredictable of situations and the thought of 'you only live once' comes into play which in turn leads a person to show his true colours.
'High School DxD' exhibits an ambitious person who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals, be it in a comedic or perverted way. Putting battles side, adding to the picture are several beautiful individuals that would be able to tickle one's sense in the greatest of manners. read more
If you liked Highschool DxD, then you will like Highschool of the Dead too. Action, Ecchi, Supernatural are some genres in both anime. Cute girls with powers or guns —perfect !
The main characters are similar (a shy girl, the most powerful girl, a smart girl, and a guy...) A harem for the eyes ! ;)
Both are about how a guy is suddenly thrown into a life threatening situation where they have no control over.Both are ecchi/action and a little bit of harem type animes.Highschool DxD has more of a demon/action theme to it where as Highschool of the Dead is more of a horror/action.
- Both have a 'highschool' and paranormal settings.
- MC in both series is easily like-able.
- Both follow a fan service/ecchi theme.
I watched High school DxD before HOTD and was hesitant to watch Highschool of the Dead because I ignorantly decided that it was probably going to be dull and no real plot however, I pulled myself to watch it and it was honestly surprising how there were elements which evoked emotion and not just in an erotic way... Definitely a must watch.
*Both are ecchi/action/harem type of shows...
* Male leads if needed becomes awesome badasses xD
* Female leads...hmmm they're similar in personalities...a bit..
* Both have great supporting cast...
* OP/ED/OST's & voice acting - in both was great...
* Both can create super awesome/unbelievable/memorable for years moments...
* Both are truly great if you're bored of other mediocre harems like Testament of the New Devil/ To Love-Ru/ Sora no Otashimono...
High school students, Harem, Boobs, both illogical, both ecchi, both "meh" (at best) I also meant to say boobs, boobies, breasts, boobs, and more boobs. Oh and high school students. High School of the Dead is more of a survival of the fittest type of anime, with the MC being the guy who rises up from being beta to alpha--with hot babes wantin that hawt meat stick of love. DxD is more leniant, what I mean is that, the MC is just there to soak up all of the women + boy's attention. Sound different? Well not really, the story will center around the MC, and I don't just mean story, but all of the ladies too baby. One last thing these 2 anime's have in common is that you get this feeling inside of you that just tells you to not watch it when others are around.
A (minor) difference, HOTD has a zombie apocalypse - DXD has devils/angels ('n stuff like that).
HOTD and DxD are so perverted and naughty, one might mistake these for hentai (make sure to only watch in a comfortable setting!). Well if these aren't hentai... well that's not true IMHO, these 2 should be considered softcore hentai. Have fun kiddos! (I only watched them for the plot, and characters, nothing else.)  read more
Even though their stories are not similar,they share other similarities such as:
Big boobed girls
There is a supernatural element in both of them (in DxD demons,in hotd zombie)
They are both famous for their great amount of fanservice that usually comes with action scenes
And since they are both harem anime the male leads are surrounded by gorgeous girls
To put it simply, these stories are in a Highschool, "Post-Apocalyptic", Survival setting. Both shows portrays the drama in living in a world surrounded by "them". Each has it's own way to provide "service to the fans", but at the end of the day it's all about trying to survive in the god-forsaken world they live in. (Also the endings are performed by Maon Kurosaki.)
Both stories entail the survival of high school aged students from the zombie apocalypse. Gakkou Gurashi has a more slice of life feel to it, while HotD is an ecchi anime, but both are decently good watches!
If you like the high school horror zombie apocalypse setting but was not a fan of the eechiness, and more serious tone of H.O.T.D. then Gakkougurashi!? has the exact same setting as H.O.T.D. but instead, they STAY at the school, it's more psychological, there's no eechiness, less bloody, and they're all lolis. Its like a slice of life but zombies are in it, if that sums it up at all, but Gakkougurashi!? is great changing the mood, it can go from a happy, funny moment to the scariest and most unexpected scene ever, Trust me. Watch the first episode. Watch Gakkougurashi!?!! If you like the somewhat kind of like Highschool Of The Dead setting. read more
Both series take place in a zombie apocalypse with a group of Highschool survivors.
Whilst both series have some unrealistic coincidental set of events that provide the main characters with equipment to survive Highschool of the dead is more action based than Gakkou Gurashi but if you want to keep the whole zombie apocalypse theme then Gakkou Gurashi is a great watch .
Highschool of the Dead is an ecchi but as long as you get over that it should be an enjoyable watch if you liked Gakkou Gurashi.
Cute high-school girls destroying zombies! Both Gakkou Gurashi and High School of the Dead can be categorized as 'fan service', be it boobs or just goofy moe humor. Both also have plenty of spooky situations and an environment that forces the main cast to fight for their survival.
They both set in a highschool where theres a zombie apocalypse. Gakkougurashi does have scenes of action. Gakkougurashi is like the safer version of HOTD, if you aren't really into gore (but you love zombie stuff) & ecchi. Gakkougurashi looks more on friendship & bonds, so it's the kind of anime to make you cry. Just like HOTD, Gakkougurashi does have comedy too.
Come watch an actual good zombie anime, for once. Also, while the ecchi and zombies mix like oil and water in HotD, the CGDCT and zombies in GG combine so well that I actually found myself liking the contrast.
The main theme for both anime series is" survival." Their peaceful days are changed forever. The humans face an unstoppable force that causes the world to panic in fear. The Zombie/Titans appear in groups and attack on instinct.
With only a select few of brave humans will humanity survivor or cease to exist.
•both are an anime where humans are abruptly shattered with tragedy and despair within a few minutes of there normal everyday lives.
•both anime shows the existence of an unnatural 'being' appearing out of nowhere suddenly and destroying what humanity created within centuries only to crumble within a few hours or less.
•both are very realistically precise as to what humans exactly 'do' in a do or die situation/desperate situation, it shows the mental state as something unnatural in everyday lives appears suddenly and causes upright despair, will they rebel,cower in fear,be courageous,stupidity etc.
•both animes follow/show as the story progresses a group of young teenagers as they fight for their/humanity survival, defeating the 'beings' as they move to safety.
•both show tragic deaths in inhumane ways, that will strike emotion into the audience, while the supporting cast watches the slaughter
•they are both similar as a group of teens are fighting against 'monsters' to save humanity/themselves, probably enjoy one if you enjoy the other.
Survival anime, bloody and gorey, group of teens (plus a few adults) fighting against a group of hostile creatures that prey on mankind. Both have very similar atmospheres and story telling aspects. They both have narration that creates suspense and thrill for the shows. HOTD has a lot more ecchi, while SnK actually kills major characters so those are just a few of the differences.
'Shingeki no Kyojin' and 'Highschool of the Dead' are similar because it has a 'Dystopian' kind of anime. Wherein Shingeki no Kyojin, Titans (giant human-like creatures) are eating humans not for food source but just for pleasure, but there are soldiers who fight these Titans in order to save humanity! While in Highschool of the Dead, a Zombie Apocalypse has occurred! And there's a bunch of Highschool students are struggling to survive. Will they survive this insane sudden occurrence? Find out!
Both anime focus on how people cope with an overwhelming force. In HSOD the characters find themselves laughing at the reminder that their are still human and in Skingeki no Kyojin man kinds hopes and dreams of ever leaving the walls are riding on people that have to change, loss themselves as human beings, to make achieve that. In both the changes leave the characters as something even worse than the very thing they are trying to beat.
Both shows are about fighting an un-natural threat to humanity. They also both have a post-apocalyptic, dystopian vibe to them. Even the pacing and the character moments seem pretty similar. The major difference between the two is that in-between action scenes, Attack on Titan focuses on comedy, while Highschool of the Dead focuses on boobs & sexual situations.
Both of these anime have very serious and tense atmosphere which sets them apart from a lot of anime.
Both anime depict the human race on the verge of destruction.
These two anime are very different in terms of plot, but if you liked the suspense and intensity of Attack on Titan, you will enjoy Highschool of the Dead.
Both contain a big amount of blood, action-packed & not to mention all the ecchi elements they have.
In both,the characters are forced to cooperate and fight against monsters/zombies in order to survive.
HOTD has much better animation and character design.
If you like one you might enjoy the other as well.
People must survive an impossible situation, in Gantz there are aliens; in Highschool of the Dead there are zombies. Both have nudity, both are very gore. While Gantz have realistic characters, HOTD focuses more on fan service and Bad-ass characters.
Both series have an inexplicable amount of blood, gore, and tits.
However, Highschool of the Dead feels a bit more self-aware of it's perversions and comes off as comedic-yet-juvenile, while Gantz takes itself a bit more seriously all-around, making the perverted moments seem a bit more mature.
Both anime are focused on survival, and the main characters are constantly worried about betrayal. Rightfully so, I might add. Highschool of the Dead has massive amounts of ecchi and fanservice while Btooom has barely any.
full of gruesome kill scenes, amazing plots and vivid art work. These both focus on the will to survive by characters in the situations they are put in, both also focus on the male demographic (high school of the dead a lot more than Btoooom!). both are amazing and action packed and are good for a Binge watch.
hotd is pervy and btooom is more discreet about it and has a bit more respect. it pleasantly surprised me cause we know anime.
now that that's out of the way, they are a bit different , yet have a similar feel.
on one hand, a guy is mindlessly killing zombies, holding onto the fact that they are dead and it is justifiable to keep himself sane, while the other has a guy forced kill real live people and has actually lost his mind a few times.
either way, there are deaths, gore, and boobs.
hotd is less thought provoking (boo), but has more bloodshed (yay) and unnecessary fanservice (boo) so that's something.
btooom has more food for thought (yay) and thankfully less pervy moments (yay), but when it does have them... it almost ruins the entire mood (BOO).
but if those boo moments don't bother you (or you enjoy them), check the other out. read more
The mere notion of combining tits & arse fan-service with serious subject matter/direction is usually a BIG no-no. People that want smutty antics usually do not much care for death and non-orgasmic thrills, and vice versa. But these two series are a special kind of exception to that most logical of rules.
HotD refreshes the quite literally done-to-death zombie genre with a haremish, alpha male approach to survival. The other pokes fun at any and every prison escape story with the aid of srsbiz 'horror' male faces and femdom overload. Money is also happily thrown around in the way of budgeting to improve the eye-candy AND action; complete with stellar direction/timing.
They are undoubtedly trashy forms of entertainment that target males, yes, but by combining polar opposite subject matter with a heavy dosage of lulz and thrills, they became different from everything else in a strangely satisfying way. Granted, some people will question why they are not just outright hentai, whilst others will be distracted by the subject matter clash. But those that can walk the 'middle road' and just accept / enjoy the two for what they are will be in for a treat. Non-lesbian females and gay males aside, possibly.  read more
They're both not necessarily a harem but is more towards the seinen audience. Both series takes place in a school with teenagers. The fanservice is greatly incorporated and is core in both series with nice art and animation.
watching Highschool of the Dead reminds me of Higurashi--albeit with a lot of ecchi. this series really holds nothing back, as far as the violence goes. Higurashi is the same in that it captures the expressions of the characters really well. if you liked one, chances are you'll like the other
Both series feature a main male protagonist where after a certain event, his life is changed forever. By basis, the characters in the series are isolated at a location that is no longer where they feel like at home.
Both series feature horror themes where there is violence, gore, and blood spilled.
Both series focus on survival and how the main characters must find ways to ensure that he lives and achieves his ambitions.
Both series have action and supernatural themes.
Tired? Stressed? You will feel better sitting on the couch watching fanservice (the source of all problems). Storylines play no important role in these two worlds where sexual attraction and pleasure conquers all.
‘Highschool of the Dead’ puts you in a world of zombie filled with stench of death where hope is the furthest thing from one’s mind. In the depths of this crisis, a group of gorgeous females charms the city with both their look and appealing physiques. It is almost impossible to miss out on a potentially hot scene wherever you are. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing beautiful woman taking out zombies one after another and paradise is destined for the guys in the group.
‘Triage X’ set its sight in a city filled with corruption and hidden in the shadows, lays a group of dark knights sworn to purge the city of this disease. Aside from the killing, it does not hurt to have woman with lustful bodies taking over the screen (fanservice style) regardless of their individual importance. Torture is used as an element to add another level of pleasure in the already sweet gratification. That alone is enough to divert a person’s attention away from the great songs and character development in the series.
It has the same illustrator who signature art involves boobs and the bloody, it has the same shallow plot, however HOTD's plot was more practical than Triage X whose plot is so elaborate for an anime than only runs for 10 episodes. Characterwise, triage X involves 1 guy and a lot of older women, while in HOTD it's two guys and one older girl, however the extra guy in HOTD was basically sidelined for the most part.
Both don't have a serious story and is all about the badass characters and the gory action, both have zombies in them, both have bad ass weapon specialist. HOTD has ecchi and Hellsing Ultimate has those cartoon comedy moments. Both are high quality animation Madhouse production.
Both are about zombies. However, one is heavier on the ecchi and gore while the other is more light hearted and random. The atmosphere these 2 gives is completely different. HOTD is like a thriller with excessive fanservice, unlike Zombie which mixes many genres together to create a rather unorthodox story (mahou shoujo mixed with zombie= win?)
They both feature the frightening undead (except the protagonist in Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? isn't like a Resident Evil type of zombie). They also take place in a world where the characters never thought they'd up end in and it's packed with action, comedy, and fan service.
Ecchi is the biggest selling point in both anime so if beautiful, big-breasted anime women are something you cherish in life (I do) then you should find enjoyment in both series.
Both anime have pretty much of the same feeling as a survival with a group of people except Kanbaneri is more about survival with a group of cowardly people with only a few strong whereas Highschool's group of characters are all strong and gets stronger each episode. Both anime may take place in a different time period but the basic idea is fighting the undead, people get bit and come back to attack humans. The amount of gore and nudity is about the same but Highschool is more ecchi, after all, it is about a bunch of teenagers.
Both series deal with a zombie apocalypse. However, the 'zombies' in Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress are 'hard mode' zombies, and has been around for considerably longer.
Both series deal with strong themes of survival, This leads to both having amazing, if not over the top, action sequences nearly anytime a battle with hordes of the undead begin.
That said, Kabaneri does not have the sexually gratuitous fanservice that HOTD was swimming in, which might make it a slightly more appropriate series to share with others.
Lastly, both series are very well animated, with each motion and movement feeling crisp and 'real', while the soundtrack punctuates without overwhelming.
Both of these anime revolve around surviving in an apocalyptic situation.
Each anime has a group that is formed after the apocalypse begins and they work together to survive and reach a destination.
Tokyo Magnitude is more dramatic and focuses on a major earthquake, while Highschool of the Dead more action oriented focusing on a zombie apocalypse.
Different type of shows, one is zombie apocalypse, the other earthquake related. Both have characters that search for families and loved ones and deal with the aftermath of the disaster and the break-up of society.
Break-up of society and the struggle to survive is greatly portrayed in both anime.
Both Have Like That Same Vibe / Feeling even though one is about zombies and one is about dead kids and their life. U get the feeling that like the group is fight against everything else and like stick together with lots of comedy =D hotd has more eechi though.
Both are story of survival. In, Angel Beats! they fight to survive so that they will not disappear from the afterlife while in Highschool of the Dead they fight to survive from the creepy undead zombies. You can say that they are both gore and have unexpecteed endings.
The art work is very similar and it also has to do with untrained kids dealing with weapons for separate insane reasons. Angel Beats is definitely the greater of the two taking out the ecchi elements in HOTD and replacing it with very intense drama but HOTD concept is very imaginative and is actually very hard to pull off when it comes to zombie apocalypse as it never truly has an ending just ask the people who made RESIDENT EVIL
I just finished watching highschool of the dead and it was amazing!! I noticed that both anime have very different conflicts and yet they were so similar because neither group of people in both animes knew what was happening to them. I'll get straight to the point. If you liked one of them you will definitely like the other in terms of action, romance, and supernatural/ a slight mystery aspect in both! The only major difference that I saw in them was the ecchi. As far as I can remember I don't recall much ecchi in angel beats but both have a sort of comedy relief at times and are very serious. Good luck with your anime watching👍 read more
In both animes everything was peaceful, until suddenly people start turning into monsters, zombies in High School of the Dead and vampires in Shiki. Both anime contains an atmosphere of horror and mystery. If you want an anime with blood and slaughter, both are recommended.
Both animes begin with a normal world until an sudden outbreak of undead monsters occur (zombies in HOTD; vampires in Shiki). Soon people have to destroy these and stop them from spreading and killing more people. Both have a lot of blood, gore, action and killing.
Both are kinda similar, in both it starts with a rare decease and people figuring out what it is. Both contains the atmosphere of mystery and horror. The difference in Highschool of the Dead, the story takes place in the city and its about zombies. In Shiki, it takes place in an small village and its about vampires.
Saeko Busujima < Akame
Takashi "Taka" Komuro < Tatsumi
Both are in a group that's all about eliminating the evil and surviving.
Both live in a world where the ruled by the evil.
Differences: Akame ga Kill's Night Raides group has more members. Akame ga Kill is fantasy and medieval while HoTD is more realistic and in the current time. HoTD is very ecchi.
The differences are HUGE, but both have kind of the same feel.
These are seinen Anime with shounen-level plots.
Both shows thrust the characters into a situation of grave danger, where there is a great risk of characters dying.
Tatsumi = Takashi Komuro
Tough MC who gets to enjoy much "plot" without significant character development.
Mine= Saya Takagi
Both are pink-haired, twintailed, gun-loving tsunderes.
The former is understandably leagues above the latter in her weapon of choice, but if HOTD got a few more seasons, Takagi could emulate Mine.
Esdeath = Saeko
Both suffer from serious psychological issues despite being stoic ladies of war, and are very popular with the respective fanbases.
Leone= The Nurse (forgot name) etc...
Both are zombie animes,other than that these two are completley different.Sankerea is about trying to prolong a zombie girls life while Highschool of the Dead is just about escaping from the zombie infestation.But you dont find many zombie animes so if your a zombie fan like me you'll enjoy both.
Both have a lot of gore and violence. Granted, no zombies and its way less ecchi, but they basically have the same core character plot. Highschool has zombies and Black Lagoon is darker with the romance.
both have full on action and violence. While Highschool of the Dead is more about the fan service and ecchi, Black Lagoon is all about the guns and the action. Both are a great joyride that I never wanted to end.
They're both kind of Westernized, which isn't necessarily a bad thing in this case.
Zombie movies/TV series have always been a really American thing imo, with series such as The Walking Dead, Zombieland, and the like, and Highschool of the Dead takes that and puts the signature anime spin on it, with healthy doses of matrix boobs, ecchi, and high school students
Black Lagoon also draws influence from Western action movies, with a lot of gunfights, explosions, and generally badassery, and that's probably why the dub is better to me. It just seems to fit better.
Highschool of the Dead is definitely more gory, with it being a zombie anime, and Black Lagoon is more focused on the action, but they go together hand in hand read more
Setting aside the fact that there is one main difference in these anime -high school of the dead revolves around zombies and in 11 eyes there has to be dealt with 'magical knights'- their setting has quite some similarities. In both these supernatural ecchi anime, a group of high school students gets isolated from the rest of town and they have to find a way to survive and escape.
Action, Supernatural, Thriller/Horror, Both anime contains the same genres, Both are a little bit brutal, (Even though on High School Of The Dead they killed zombies? Is that called a brutal?) No wonder, There are some blood shed, Action, Fighting, And I've seen some zombies in Mirai Nikki, Isn't that called a zombie? Or err, Just similar to zombie would be fine, One more thing, Both shows contains Mild Nudity. High School of the dead shows some porn? Or what, Just what they mean "Ecchi" And about the Mirai Nikki, I think less than?
-Both have human-eating creatures
-Both are human-eating creatures vs human species
-Trying to survive the apocalypse, wanting to lead an ordinary life.
-Both main protagonists are involved in something they don't want to be in.
High school of the dead and Tokyo ghoul are similar in the context that they both battle against abnormal creatures.
- In Tokyo ghoul they batters against ghouls
-In High school of he dead they battle against zombies
Both have a lot of fan service. Both have a girl who is out for revenge against an authority figure. Both try to overdose on comedy. Lots of perverted, and cheesy jokes. The action scenes are pretty good, but sometimes either overdoes is or under does the action.
This may seem obvious but both heavily zombie based and action loaded. The thing is its hard to compare high school of the dead with a lot of anime since its unique since there's almost no survival styled anime. Biohazard (resident evil) tho is a movie based on survival horror in most ways. The movies deals with surviving a zombie filled airport and eventually develops a larger plot with the will pharma corporations virus/cure.
high school of the dead is a more traditional city survival and because of that i would have liked to recommend Biohazard damnation which is the sequel to degeneration but it was sadly not listed on my choices. I think you can get enjoyment from both movies if you liked HOD. It may lack the erotic and sexual content but it has all the action that i felt the show needed more of. read more
Both kick start with zombie disaster occuring within a school.
In Highschool of the Dead's case, the school is actually infested with zombies, a theme this series stays loyal to, yet within Occult academy, spirits take on a zombie-esque role, mindelessly attacking anybody and everybody, possessing dead bodies in one case, infecting thoses attacked, yet occult acedemy is open to all sorts of supernatural events occuring.
Both schools need bringing down, as they litterally harbour nothing but trouble!
Perhaps I should highlight, though this is my opinion, that both feature exceptionally annoying heroeins, from the selfish, somewhat dopey Rei within HOTD, to the know-it-all superiour Maya within Occult
Both are very campy action series with decent animation, and a considerable amount of fan service. Ga-Rei: Zero has a wider audience for it's service, so there's that.
I thought HoTD was a lot better, but Ga-Rei: Zero stood to be stupid fun.
Boobs, action, and countless Crowning Moments of Awesome. A lot of the main chars are comparable: Sasha= Komura, Mafuyu= Rei, Teresa= Saeko, Ekatrina= Saya, Tomo=Shizuka, etc. Both have really good (And similar) art and were made recently. SnQ is more fantasy themed though, while HOtD is slightly more realisic.
Both are violent.
Both have some sexual stuff in them.
Another thing that's similar to High school of the dead is a manga called Kingdom of zombie. Kingdom of zombie and Highscool of the dead both have zombies.
Both, to me, have the philosophical and emotional depth and substance of a streak of cat piss, and are created simply for cheap fanservice. Both can be fairly enjoyable if you like that sort of thing, though - HSOTD more so than R&V in my opinion.
The fanservice in Rosario and Vampire focusses more of panty shots, while Highschool of the dead is more centred around jiggling breasts. Yeah.
The setting of a post-apocalyptic world is a commonality between these two shows that otherwise feel very dissimilar, with "High School of the Dead" being set in a modern Japan whilst "A Wind Named Amnesia" being set in a more futuristic United States.
The male protagonists from both anime are kindhearted and straightforward action heroes, especially when they jump into danger in order to save people in need of help.
Both pretty super natural. But Kämpfe is more of a magic fighting anime.
Highschool of the Dead is more of a IRL zombie anime.
But the thing that they got both in common is that there's alot of boob grabbing and boob shots if you know what i mean. Alot of girls in both. Also the're worth watching. If you like one of those then i recemmend you check out the other one too!
Cool action scenes...
Tits...butts.... overall all girls is sexy as hell..
Cool male - maybe?] MC's....
Fighting the 'EVIL' creatures... in HOTD - zombies[ zombies are EVIL, right? ] and in HDxDB another evil creatures....
Both are MUST WATCH NOW !!! shows...
both are the best shows of the Mighty [ HAREM ] genre...
P.S. Not for Elistists....or Feminists....
I really don't see how noones made this connection yet!
We all love guns, we all love a bit of fan service. Highschool of the dead is alot more serious than Sabage-bu but i mean c'mon you wanna see cute girls with guns then they're both great anime to watch really!
-Both are comparable on the aetheric plane and both deserve a 10/10
-Both deal with character development and overarching story elements
-Both stem from Professor Einstein's theory of relativity
-Both reflect a world in which an event has shaped the future of a city/town
-Both have direct and indirect intertextual references to the arrest and suicide of Jeffery Epstein
Both series heavily rely on ecchi and harem concepts. Of course the both series are vastly different in setting and one being quite better than the other but where one (HOTD) serves as an action and the other (Rescue me) is a comedy.
Both have one male, somewhat gentleman, being surrounded by archetype girls who all wants him for what ever reason.
They are set in a post-apocalypse universe, them are in a place "closed to the rest" to learn things. The first impressions are that will be focused on they against the "monster", but are more focused on the personalities and interaction of the characters.
Although one involves zombies and the other involves witches both have uncanny similarities. In "Gokukoku no Brynhildr" the male protagonist "Murakam, Ryoutai" has the amazing talent of photographic memory and the ability to stay cool, calm and collective in situations that really count.
Situations arise around Ryouta which call for quick and cleaver decision making which he follows through brilliantly to protect his childhood love and everyone around him. Characters come and go really quick but if you look at "Highschool of the Dead", a lot of characters come and go really quick or should I say the main cast dispose of them really quick and to the best of their ability at that.
Here is another story that has just as many girls, the same environment, where both casts just want to lead a normal life. (One is the zombie apocalypse; the other is scientific experimenting with "said items" making witches.) Highschool of the Dead's male protagonist "Komuro, Takashi" has the "swing the baseball bat in any direction" approach to the struggles that pursue him and his group. Although he is not as clever as Ryoutai, he is however far more resourceful of the tools and various items around him, with knowledge of everyone's strengths and weaknesses’, he’s in a brilliant position to make sound and tactical decisions, to benefit himself and the ensuing cast around him.(Although he doesn't realize it!!!)
The factual opinions to why I would recommend Gokukoku no Brynhildr and H.O.T.D are simple the cast, the adventure, the action, the suspense, the thrill of watching these two series is so intense, you could simply lose yourself and fall into that exact world and envision yourself as your favorite character seeing how well you could survive in the exact situation.
* Both has most disliked thing in MAL - Fanservice!!!!
* Female MC's are badass af when needed ( invincibility mode?? )
* Action...Action....and more action in every episode!!!
* Grenadier is more simplistic show....(MC always wins no matter what) unliked HOTD, MC's are fucked up in that Zombieland...they're never safe from anything...
* Recommending only for normal/casual viewers.....( not for douchebag elitist/troll/hater pricks )
TOKKO deals with demon creatures that can infect Humans and essentially turn the Humans into "zombie-like" beings which then a special task force has to eliminate in order to close all of the gates through which the demons enter. There is blood, gore, and a decent plot.
Both titles have the main protagonist fighting against supernatural creatures (Highschool of Dead has zombies while Apocalypse Zero has mutant monsters). They both have a school setting and are set in a post-apocalyptic world. They are both very action-packed filled with lots of violence, gore and nudity but light on plot. Apocalypse Zero is more superhero action oriented, is more over the top and has less fan service compare to Highschool of the Dead. If you enjoy one, you may like the other as well.
Fan service! These two series are full of it. Ichiban Ushiro is far more comedic than Highschool of the Dead. But if you enjoyed the ridiculous, over the top boobs and panties in HSotD, the wacky ecchi humor of Ichiban Ushiro may be just right for you.
High school kids fighting the undead and demons. If you want blood and gore, these animes will fill your appetite. There is also some similiarities between characters based upon personalities and the formation of the groups in each anime. Though High school of the dead has quite a bit of ecchi and fan service where non is found in Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpucho.
In both these anime's there is a great deal of fighting and action, Highschool of the Dead however is more focused on an Apocalyptic attitude and zombies. When Ben-to is truly brawling over half priced boxed lunch. I also thought the animation and drawing style was similar.
Blood gore and violence is in both of these, hellsing has little to no ecchi but they both have a great stroy are short and dark, i'd say both series left me wanting more but still felt like there was closure
If you like one you'll like the other
Maji de Watashi Koi Shinasai! is another anime based heavily on action scenes and fanservice, although less of the latter than HotD. Though not yet complete, Watashi Koi Shinasai has quite a bit of potential to develop into an excellent story.
