Framed and convicted of murder, Yoshiaki Maeda has just arrived at Shouran Academy Juvenile Detention Center. He is placed in Cell 4 and is soon greeted by his fellow inmates Gou Iwakura, Masafumi Yoshioka, and Mitsuru Yamanoi, all of whom have been detained on varying charges and sentences. Already believing life to be laden with misfortunes, Yoshiaki finds, to his dismay, that the prison is in the midst of a violent power struggle.

However, things are about to get even worse—little do the inmates and employees know that the outside world has been thrown into chaos by a sudden zombie apocalypse, and a van carrying infected humans has just crashed into the prison, abruptly introducing them to the undead threat.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

Apocalypse no Toride is what "Highschool of The Dead" was supposed to be. It's scary, intense, bloody, and gruesome.

Story: 3
The story is a bit bland. The main character gets sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit and gets stuck with assholes, murderers, delinquents, and psychopaths. Then- zombies attack. That pretty much sums up the whole plot. Zombies attack and the four main characters have to survive. Yep.

Art: 9
The art is glorious, the monsters are hideous, and no fan service in this manga. You don't see monster boobs flying everywhere all over the page. No, the art actually makes you read more

Apocalypse no Toride is an amazing manga, and is certainly the best of the genre.
This already fully describes this perfect manga, which quenched my desire for a perfect seinen about Zombies, in my search i came to read good titles, like paused Highschool Of the Dead and Zombie Hunter, but still was not satisfied with something that was really a manga with the essence of something that passes the terror that was innovative and without cliches until i came across in Apocalypse no Toride.
The story is set in a juvenile reformatory and our protagonist is sent there after being falsely accused of an assassination, he read more

Apocalypse no Toride is probably the best manga that I have read up till this point, which admittedly isn't that much, as I just started getting into manga about a month ago. Still, my inexperience with the medium aside, I have read enough stories to know that this one is very special. I honestly assumed that I wouldn't like it because the zombie premise is really old in my opinion, but the virus is possibly the most creative and interesting zombie virus that I have seen and the zombies behave in very interesting ways. The characters are also great, and they have very clear motivations. read more

What do we need to unite people.. the answer can be either or both of these two -- common enemy and evil ruler(tyrant/dictator). A good example of each is Code Geass(tyrant/dictator) and Shingeki no Kyojin(common enemy). So now let's take a look at this manga - Apocalypse no Toride. The characters were juvenile criminals which have a common enemy i.e. ZOMBIES!!! Will they be united to fight the zombies or die greedily.

Now, I'm gonna point out the interesting parts of this manga
1. The characters were juvenile criminals. At their young age they already committed a crime, and not just a simple crime, most of them read more
