If your expecting something big with high-end explosive action and a riveting zombie-apocalypse story, this is not for you.....but if your looking for an add-on to 2010's all-breast soft-porn material that was High School of the Dead then look no further as I can gladly recommend this short OVA which is titled H.O.T.D: Drifters of the Dead.

For all the hype that H.O.T.D received in 2010, you either were 'anti- or for' the franchise and all I can say after watching this short 16 minute episode is that for those who were anti-; Drifters of the Dead is just going to add fuel to your fire.

I still don't get the appeal of this series. The show seems to be 5% zombies, 95% cleavage, and this time around, it was 95% cleavage, 5% unusual sex situations.
I mean, I guess I enjoyed it... but there is no story line anywhere in this OVA.
Okay, so technically there was a story line, but it's somewhat difficult to extract.
The odd thing is that if I tell you the story line, I spoil the OVA.
Well, I'll try.

Story- 1
Yes, I gave it a one.
The group comes to an island where they're supposedly safe from the zombies.. typical, right? In this scenario, you would expect to see, read more

I dont really understand why i picked Highschool of the Dead: Drifters of the Dead as my first anime to review. Its probably because i watched all of HotD in one sitting and my brain isnt functioning properly anymore. Bear with me.
Drifters of the Dead is basically the studio behind the most titillating non-hentai-anime in recent memory going 'maybe we didnt deliver enough on the boobs?'
(they did)
And then they made a beach episode.
So we can have even less plot and even more fanservice than in the regular series. Sure, why not.

Story - 2
Does this OVA continue the open ended story of read more

Ok, so first I think that this is gonna be an extended episode, but, it looks like something that was once rated as awesome (the 12 part episode) then it suddenly took a bad dive. So, the rating:

Story: Pathetic no.1.

Story is about them (you know whom) escaping is some deserted island paradise only to get in some kind of high because somebody put Hydrangea in the fire that cause everyone to hallucinate, not only that, it seems that everyone is in heat as well so much so that they all started banging one another with someone they fantasize about......and it ends there.

Art: Very good no.8.

Ok, read more

Highschool of the Dead: Drifters of the Dead

Do the boobs always make everything better? Probably yes, but not in too big amounts.
Why? Because we know, that the more boobs are in anime, the more it's bad.

Except hentai.

Highschool of the Dead mixed the story with ecchi. Did OVA do it?


Story - 1

Wait, what? There's actually story there? It looks, like there actually IS some sort of story. They escape from zombies on island... Pathetic story.

Art - 8

The art is like always. It's pretty good.

Sound - 9

The voices are great, like always. They really fit for characters. Speaking of which...

Character - 4

Yeah, there's everyone. Nearly. Except zombies.

When I heard there was going to be an OVA of Highschool of The Dead I was really curious and happy about it, since I am a huge fan of the series but I got disappointed in some points. because Highschool of teh Dead was a Splatter-horror-Zombie Anime with many Ecchi Elements, but that Episode was an Ecchi-Anime with a little Zombie element at the End.

Story 7 -> It was an interesting story but I missed the Zombie-Horror Parts in the Episode.

Art 9 -> It was a very detailed Art style and everything looked awesome!

Sound 8 -> I can't complain about something, thpugh some voices read more

All our favorite characters providing the ultimate fan service! THANK YOU! My favorite highlights: "REVOLUTION! REVOLUTION!", the pairings at dawn just before the halucinations stopped (Rei and Saeko was perfect), and, of course, Takeshi's halucination. LMFAO!!!

WHAT NO ZOMBIES ! Yeah I said it! Well almost but all jokes aside I really enjoyed H.O.T.D. I am intrigued with the idea of a zombie apocolypse but this OVA did nothing for the anime. It might have even knocked it down a peg.

Lets face it, H.O.T.D has alot of zombies and blood but if anything else it has more breasts out and about. This OVA was just on the border of almost being porn. There were so much cleavage I was almost a tad bit uncomfortable. The whole episode was nothing but a dedication to fanservice. There's nothing wrong with that but I read more

Ok, ok... This is the proof that even with glorious girls and a lot of "almost-raping-you ecchi" an OVA can bore you to tears.

If the level of fan service in the series is too much (yes, I think that there can be too much fan service in a series), in this it is ridiculous. Far from being funny or getting anyone (over the age of 18) horny, the over-exploitation of sexuality in the ways used here is so unrealistic and immature that borders the vulgar and grotesque, plus the depth of every character was was sent to oblivion, making them no more than "porn read more

A calm episode without zombies in wich HotD crew spends a day on the small island's beach. Ecchi and humorous.

But it's not even worth mentioning. It's not very funny and it's not very hot.
The story doesn't evolve in it in any way nor the relations between characters. It's pure and silly ecchi breast action involving all female main characters halucinating, but it's not even interesting.

The only reason I could think of that somebody could watch this OVA is for seeing Miss Shizuka's nipples. :] Fortunately it's short and there's only one episode so I didn't have to watch more of this kind of OVA's to read more

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. read more

Well the HOTD is my first ecchi anime to watch, and it happens to be one of those anime that is actually very enjoyable, even if the boobs of the women, are massive, and jiggle more than jello. But this review is just for this OVA.

There is no need to write anything long or fancy for this, because the episode is straight forward. Basically, this episode is about how the gang arrived at an island and had a wild and crazy night due to "something" in the air. There is no real plot to it and it is all about just read more

i really liked this anime until all of the scenes started showing "plot", by plot i mean tits and ass everywhere.it seemed to be a cool anime but then after speculation i realized i dont really like it when all the waifus are pulling out their jalopys in every damn scene.but overall 10/10.

Anime, as an artform, has existed for 100 years now and as the medium evolves so does the quality of shows. However, in protest of this arbitrary rule, Highschool of the dead: drifters of the dead has reached the pinnacle of anime, no, art itself. I truly believe that Highschool of the dead: drifters of the dead is the absolute peak of human creativity; the passion and love put into the OVA coming through in its impeccable presentation. The lively animation of the character's voluptuous assets is a feast to the eyes whilst the story drags you in, making you wish you were in the read more

Just as I thought HotD coudn't become any more ecchi, this OVA appeared XD Even though this really had nothing much to do with the original story line in my opinion, I enjoyed watching it! :D Like I said it's a very ecchi episode, but some of the things that happened made me LOL forever XD
I don't think I can really say much else about it, if you've seen HotD and you liked it, or if you're in for a good laugh and don't mind lots of ''almost-nudeness'', then I'd say; watch this! ;)

They might as well make this OVA into a hentai.

Story: Like a hentai, there's near no storyline.

Art: The art is quite bad compared to the original series, I can see quite a number of 2D drawings. But the coloring is good, for the most part.

Sound: Sound was ok, the best part of this ova imo is the ED. The OP doesn't fit in the progression in this OVA. Voice acting was ok for the most part, but the narrator at the front sounds a bit strange. I thought it would be the main male lead's (normal) voice.

Character: For the most part, they stayed true to read more

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.

Character: 2
Females have boobs and males are horny. That's it.

Story: 1
As I said, it has none. It takes place after the main anime. They get to an island, go swimming (insert bikini scenes here), Takashi and Kouta try to find food, the make a fire with hallucinogenic leafs, more fan service and roll the read more

Story: Alright.... So..... The story isn't all that great, not gonna lie. And yet we all know that, but We came here for the same reason we visit pornhub every now and then..... HUGE ANIME TITTIES!

The story is pretty much where they escape to an island and They setup camp there. They light a fire and By accident without knowing, they threw some kind of medical drug into the flame and Everyone was read more
