After escaping the zombie-infested mainland, Takashi Komuro and the gang find themselves on a remote island off the coast of Tokonosu City. While scavenging around the island for supplies, they encounter a small seaside shack that provides them with clothing and a place to rest for the night. After a day's work of collecting food, they begin to cook what they have gathered.

As they wait beside the campfire, a light haze begins to form around them and makes them nauseous. Confirming it to be caused by hydrangeas—a type of poisonous plant that can cause hallucinations—the group attempts to escape from the powerful odor.

Came for softcore hentai, received softcore hentai. Came to watch Takashi get smothered by breasts, watched Takashi get smothered in breasts. This OVA isn't a sequel to the main events of HOTD, but rather a mandatory beach episode that was slapped on as an OVA. The events of this OVA have no significance for the main story.

Story: 4/10
I mean its only purpose was to show off the HOTD girls in swimsuits. The story is bad but it's alright because if you're watching this it's not for the story.

Art: 9/10
Madhouse doing softcore hentai. that's all you need to know.

Sound: 8/10
The music is really good. ...

Mixed Feelings
The style of the anime is definitely over-the-top, with exaggerated action scenes and physics-defying maneuvers. But hey, it's all in good fun, right? The animation is slick and the character designs are memorable, although some may argue that the female characters are a bit too sexualized.

not much different from the parent storynya. still the same character, music, style. Even so that it is certain that it is still the same as hanging. You can read my review in the parent story.
However. OVA is synonymous with fan service. yup. that really adds to the fan service. but don't expect much, the important thing is as long ...

Terrible OVA of an already bad show..

nothing. happens.

You get some boobs, terrible jokes and sad excuses for "sex scenes".
It baffles me how this has a rating above 6, I guess that horny teenagers are indeed the target audience..

Art and sound: 4
It was made by Madhouse Studios. No slow-mo boobs matrix though.
