Synopsis

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.

PROS:
I think this is the best of the 'zombie' mangas out there. The zombies evolve in really cool ways and there is more plot than just survive from one new area to the next one with no new information. There are some boring zombie cliches but also unique twists to this story. There some some strong bonds like a father/child and a huge bromance. The artwork is amazing but gory.

CONS:
The story feels really incomplete. There are no answers to several very important questions. There was a final boss fight but I still felt like the story could have continued.

I haven't read many manga but this one is certainly one of the best.
It is very enjoyable and suspenseful.

Story: 8/10
The story seems simple, A boy gets sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit and a zombie attack hits the prison and he has to survive as well with the other inmates. What I liked about the story was that the zombies had different species and looked different than your average zombie to make it more interesting. It was very suspenseful and at times you don't know what's going to happen.

Art: 9/10
The art was great. The zombies were really gory and realistic looking which read more

While starting to read this manga, I was blown away. It was fresh, unique. Not the zombie genre, but its take on it. It was edgy, but it wasn't trying to. Everything about it was my cup of tea. It was obvious that the author was planning this as a semi-long series. Unfortunately, it was axed since it wasn't that popular. Making the ending abrupt and not fully conclusive. If it wasn't for that, I probably would have given this a 9 or maybe even a 10.

TL;DR Manga was amazing at first but ending was shit since it was cut short.

Apocalypse no Toride (Fort of Apocalypse) is definitely one of the best manga series I've read. It's packed with action, gore, interesting characters, a bit of fan dis-service, a bit of fan service, and a good storyline.

Story- 8/10
A good old zombie thriller. The zombie apocalypse starts and the characters have to find a way to survive. The setting starts at a juvenile detention center, but travels across different parts of Japan, giving glimpses of how the world has changed due to the apocalypse.

The plot progression is pretty good, too. It goes at a steady, but quick pace, bringing new information to the reader read more
