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.

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.

Mixed Feelings
It's a good manga. It's really nothing ground breaking, but it is so d*mn enjoyable to binge-read.

The story is simple enough. Except for the science stuffs that is pretty complicated.
My only problem with the story is the vast amount of plot conveniences that could break the readers' emersion. Other than that, there isn't really any problems except for nitpicks and bunch of questions that the story wasn't able to answer.

The characters are good enough. They are handled quite well even though the side characters are literally just there to fill up the number of survivors. Also, why was the survivor numbers needed anyways? The guards ...
