Thanks for clarifying that thing. =) But Rei was held back despite being an excellent student,that's why i guess she called Saeko "senpai". Saeko asked Rei stop calling her "senpai" in episode 11 and she said ":You know we are actually".... And Rei said something like "let's not talk about it".

ok I just finished the show, and yeah u r right she did say that.
but according to japanese wikipedia( they are the same age, so what Saeko would try to say maybe is other thing like "We are actually... (good friend or whatever)"

Well,maybe...but i still think Saeko just wanted to say :"Stop calling me senpai,we actually in the same grade".And Rei said "let's not talk about it".That means:" I really want to forget,that i was held back despite being an excellent student" (because Senpai is an honorific term in anime that is used to signify that a person is an elder, senior OR upperclassmen .Becides Saeko and Rei are not enemies.And there is no reason for Rei to tell Saeko "let's not think about us being friends".Yeah,Takashi made love triangle,but still...They are not enemies,really).So i think Rei is just trying to forget the worst episode in her life.And calling Saeko senpai helps Rei think,that she always was in the same grade as Hisashi and she never had jumped her grade and that she wasn't held back.Like it was just a bad dream and nothing more.

A lot of mixed reactions by everyone in this episode. As for me, I won't go on for 10 years as I did in my response/comment on the first episode. This episode was good, but lacked the same construction as the first. I can say it was generally interesting and I liked the progression, but it could still use some work. Looking forward to the next! (^.^)

[color=purple]This series is looking quite good so far :) I'm pleased with the amount of ecchi, I was worried that there would be far more than there has been so far. Also the characters personalities are quite impressive! I thought it would just be a group of girls screaming and one guy coming to their rescue all the time, but they all seem to have their own little traits :)[/colors]

OMG this epi was amazing! i loved the part where the Dr. pushed "fatty" out of the way with her breasts XD but wow that Nurse is really stupid! she let that guy die and did nothing really... shes really helpless... and omg Takagi lies that guy X3 its so cute! and she was all jealous when he looked at the 3rd year haha... oh and it was hilarious when that guy told Takagi to get things for him and he was all serious when he turned around then put on a cute innocent smile asking for them X} i hope Rei's fathers okay... didnt sound very well over the phone... it sucks that he didnt know it was her... im so happy all survivors came together! now they're gonna get out somehow hopefully! well anyway this was an AWESOME EPISODE!!!

Awesome! I love how nurse acts like nothing happen.

Saya looks like tsundere type. She shouted to Hirano that she wants to survive but when he wanted her to help him (take some nails and stuff) her reaction was so selfish omg.

I liked Rei more because of this episode.

Quite a nice episode these are going quite at a good pass, the main characters are all joined together and they seem to be quite interesting on their own! Defiantly got me hooked! Let's see how they'll leave the school in the next episode!

Good episode.
Hirano voice acting sounds so simillar. Don't know who voiced him. Maybe it is Daru from stiens;gate.Sometimes he is funny.
By god that preview is so nice!
Still hate that pink bitch. Her attitude looks like Nina from code geass again lol!
Yellow hair girl slut slut.

Whelp the nurse is just a dumb pair of boobs and the pink haired chick is an annoying bitch. Honestly I can't see either of them living very long since they're both pretty useless. But I do really like the Kendo chick, shes pretty awesome.

Anyways another good episode, I'm really enjoying this series so far.

the boob sounds are great
"Urushibara Ruka. The mannerisms and voice of a woman... No... More feminine than any woman. But he's a guy. Taller than Mayuri, but so very thin... But he's a guy. Looks great in a miko outfit... But he's a guy. It's already twilight And yet, it's so hot. The cicadas are crying. But... He's a guy."

Goddamn, the blonde nurse is an idiot. Pink haired megane is pretty shit as well.

So far, if I had to rank the girls:
Black haired > Orange haired > Pink haired > Blonde

You guys keep complaining about the fan service. Am I the only one who didn't pay that much attention to it and focused on the trying to survive part of the episode?

i actually jumped a little when Hirano gave Takagi that death glare.
but it turns out takagi actually is smart. she figured out the zombies have poor sight, react to sound, and feel no pain.

the blond nurse is the only one whos useless up to this point.. laughed when her boob knocked over Hirano.

+cliche: Rei's dad having poor cell connection and being attacked right after finishing his one-way conversation.
+cliche: news coverage of police fighting zombies; camera-man and news anchor are attacked--static.

Nice episode!

I didn't like how Shizuka is such a ditzy. Wake the fuck up there are zombies out there out to kill you and your more concentrating on acting like klutz instead of actually paying attention.

Finally Saeko shows up!!! Wonder why she's not killing though :P

Takagi is such tsundere. Kinda annoying sometimes, but i love Eri Kitamura's voice :)

I thought Hirano look like the Highschool of the dead creator. Also a gun otaku :O

Can't wait for the next episode! More killing please!!

The nurse couldn't remember the name of the student that protected her, and it was played up as comedic despite him essentially being killed at the moment. And that was on top of the bouncing sound effects. Then, there were the moments with Takagi giving Hirano hell, or just being unreasonable in general.

I mean, creating a show that's not meant to be taken seriously is fine, but those parts bothered me.

Also, at the end, we have a repeat performance of someone who is announcing/reporting on the zombie situation, only to be attacked/killed with everything being recorded. This show truly revolves around panic and chaos.

Other than those moments, I can say that Highschool of the Dead is, at this point, everything I expected from random images, videos, and hearsay I've been exposed to over the years. I'm still unsure if that's a good thing or not though.

Not bad I guess, don't really care for the fanservice and the "boing" sounds during Shizuka's intro was a bit weird to me.

Can't expect much less of fan service though.

I loved Hirano (Fat guy) & Takagi (Genius) bickering though lol.

Hirano: I kinda... I hate walking.
Takagi: And that's why your so fat! You need to put down the Walmart Cheetos and exercise!

"Walmart Cheetos" lmao

I don't remember that in the manga. I'm guessing it's a dub translation.

Moving a little to fast, wonder what they will do with this rate and 12 episodes... got together rather quickly for my taste. didnt show so much about what ,and how and so on..but anyway. it just a few "nip picks" i have, other then that is enjoying, even tho its little bit too fast. xD fucking anime/Japan forgot how to prepared for zombies ...

i would probably be like hirano with a nail gun xD man i got hyped on that on!! insane ass fuuck xD
way to much fan service for Shizuka tho. *doing**doing* like wtf xD ooh whale.

This keeps getting better in my opinion I wonder what was the reason for those zombies in the first place It would be pretty unsatisfying if it would end without finding an antidote poor Takashi his parents must be infected by now.

So we have a dumb blonde airheaded bimbo nurse with tig ol bitties, Shizuka Marikawa, a sword wielding girl who is a badass, Saeko Busujima, a heavyset kid with an obsession with guns and ammo to survive the zombie apocalypse, Kohta Hirano, and a pink haired pain in the ass tsundere cunt who is a childhood friend of Takashi's, Saya Takagi, who claims to be a genius, but was unwilling to lend a hand of the others using weapons. Stupid ass Miss Goody Two Shoes tsundere kono yarou. Just wish she could have turned into a zombie. And her family is rich.

Bruh, shut the fuck up. That ending was annoying as fuck. It wasn't emotional at all, now shut yo bitch ass up, and sit yo bitch ass down.

TV static earrape is epic.

Marikawa is either sociopathic, or the writer can't figure out, logically when she should be ditzy, and when not.

They obviously added the obligatory edgy anime smile after killing, because that doesn't make you look incompetently bad at writing a sadist character. No reveal, or build-up, or good writing, just trash.

The only thing good about this show so far is being even slightly enjoyable somehow, and it's really good action choreography (unironic).

And, of course, Rei romantically likes kamisama MC now, because that makes sense. I mean, gradual, and realistic, or even unrealistic, reasonable development can't possibly be healthy for a story. I'm imagining a board room, and after some discussion of what to do with the story, someone yells, "Just make all the weebs' dicks hard!", and everyone applauses.

Characters are trash, characters are inconsistent, characters are stupid, characters are too light-hearted, tone is inconsistent, and just kill me now. Anime is a mistake, I'm a mistake, you're a mistake for reading this, and my rant is over.
