School Live is a psychological horror of cute girls doing cute things while trying to survive the zombie apocalypse.

The story is very basic, the girls are surviving in a zombie apocalypse. Its very standard in terms of the zombie genre but it's the characters that truly make this series shine. The cast is so lovable to the point of dangering your health from worrying about their safety. Yuki is my personal favourite and she's one of my favourite characters ever. She's very complex just like the rest of the main four and that's what I love about this. Kurumi is the lovable tomboy, Yuuri is read more

So I finally got to reading this thing. I probably chose the worst time, since during depression season, the last thing you need is even more sadness.

A great series exploring themes of "growing up" and "moving on". Has inconsistent pacing and tonality, from juggling between slice of life and horror. This means I often realized a conflict existed when the conflict was already over, but also made every jump-scare or reaction shot that much more effective, since you never knew when something horrible will happen, when another friend will die.

That was the first half. The second half is much weaker, first losing the themes, then read more

Spoiler Free Review :3

First of all, if you have not watched Gakkougurashi or read the manga, don't read any reviews don't read a synopsis, none of that. Going in blind is not something I personally did, but I would recommend that to be the most exciting way to read this.

I came from the anime of Gakkougurashi wanting to see if it was as good as it's anime adaptation, as I had not read much manga in the past. And what I got did not disappoint in any way, it was even better than I had expected. I found it to be a very good series read more

I've got beef with School Live. On one hand, I really do commend it, any series that can convince me to read 78 chapters of material has some sort of merit to it. But in the case of School Live, much of that merit is purely hypothetical. I think this was a concept that had a lot of potential on several fronts, but A) didn't understand the themes it initially presented enough to follow up convincingly, and B) didn't understand the draw of the concept in the first place. But I should back up and define that concept in the first place. School Live, as read more
