I hate how people practically crucify this show just because it has fanservice in it, yes it has a lot of it but it was up front and honest about it. The opening song should have told you what kind of show this was going to be and people are yet so SURPRISED to see that it has so much sexy stuff in it. I feel like the people who hate on HOTD do not even really focus on the good things about it like the awesome soundtrack, animation, three dimensional characters, and fight scenes.

Does anyone else agree with me on this?

Well, I watched the first 15 minutes because a guy told me to do it, my brother the same, and more guys so I took a look and I didn't liked it. I don't hate it. But I had the same feeling like playing as a girl in Tera (I'm not talking about the genre of the character, I mean the movements). I can't describe this feel, but it was more or less the same.
However, I wanna read the manga because I'm expecting something more. Some people said me the manga is better.

If people hate an ecchi for having fanservice then they shouldn't be watching ecchi! If they don't like the show for more logical reasons then I'm ok, but hating it for the fanservice? GTFO

They are scared of tits, ass, and fanservice, but they are not afraid of zombies, maybe that's why ahahaha.

To be honest I enjoyed it probably, because I watch anime mainly for the plot.

I enjoyed watching HOTD for the fan service IMO. In no way is this show anything but zombies, blood, and titties.

I don't think I've seen this show receiving any hate.

I love ecchi shows, and I thought the fan service in this series was ridiculous. It didn't enhance the show, but actually detracted from it. It's just a matter of approach, I guess.

It was pretty good, but I would give it no more than 7/10.

What many seems to deem problematic with the fan service in HOTD is that it interfered with the story and character development, hence why some people often point fingers at the fan service specifically. I consider this to be a valid and logical reason since they're not hating the fact that an ecchi show has fanservice, they're hating that it got too much in the way.

I know right.. I put off watching HOTD for 3 years because it seemed to get a bad rep. But coming into it I saw great animation (as expected of Madhouse), and actually a decent zombie apocalypse kind of story. It was tense at some points in the beginning. And the fan service wasn't excessive. If you think of any hollywood zombie movie most of them have random sex scenes just for the sake of it. So it feels normal in this kind of anime. Of course I would have liked some more character development that could have raised it to a 8/10 but to me it was a solid 7 overall.

I personally love HOTD, even though I am not a big fan of ecchi series. I still want to know where all the zombies come from though, they didn't explain this in the series. I am sad there is no season 2.

Let the haters hate, they are not focused enough on the story itself, they can only complain about the boob actions (fab bullet boob actions).

There's fanservice and then there's bad fanservice. This is the latter.

Seriously lewdness and gory zombie apocalypse action is NOT a good mix >___>

I loved the show. Bought even the manga (1st volume, I'm getting all of them) <3

Loved the ecchi too. I guess it depends on the taste. I personally took a liking to the characters, the plot, the action and the Awesome soundtrack (each episode having it's own ED). It made me want a zombie apocalypse to see if I'll behave as I think I will (like Takashi :D )

However the author dropping this series makes me sad :(
