Synopsis

On a normal day, mindless, flesh-eating zombies suddenly appear and send society into anarchy. In Fujimi Academy, second-year high school student Takashi Komuro witnesses these beasts' murderous nature firsthand. He flees to the roof with friends Rei Miyamoto and Hisashi Igou, only to discover the harrowing reality of their zombie-overrun world.

In High School of the Dead, Takashi and Rei must now rely on a band of eccentric individuals composed of: Saeko Busujima, the kendo club president; Saya Takagi, a wealthy genius; Shizuka Marikawa, their voluptuous school nurse; and Kouta Hirano, a firearm-obsessed otaku. Together they must defy all odds and survive against the horrifying undead.

It starts off as a standard zombie story, but very quickly the story pans out dependant on the personality of the characters. It is also unique through it seemingly starting off near a school, and the main cast all being in education in some way or another (Marikawa-sensei is in training).


The art is not particularly unique in an of itself, but you can still feel the passion and love that went into it. It truly is a shame that we will not be able to see it again. Rest in Peace, Daisuke Satō.

A sleigh ride from start to finish, although it was unfortunately quite abrupt.

If you like tits, action, action and tits, and tits with action then you've come to the right place my friend. Oh, and their are also guns. Copious amounts of guns with excruciating detail. What's that? You like plot in your zombie ecchi bloodbath shoot em up? What are you, some kind of nerd or something?

Jokes aside, the manga expands upon some of more lackluster areas of the anime, and while I won't go so far as to say it fixed some of my major problems with it, what I love about it read more

It’s worth reading it even though the author has passed away causing Highschool of the Dead to be discontinued. We will never get a true ending, but what was left here is a true gem. The fact is, I’m sad but not frustrated that it’s over. There are no great mysteries left to be solved.

This manga has a BEAUTIFUL full-color version from Yen Press that you should look for if you are considering reading Highschool of the Dead. I got the digital version, it was quite amazing. For those of you who are about to experience that edition for the 1st time: I envy you.

Preliminary
After I got bored with watching anime, I started reading manga that wasn't to widely known. One night around 9 p.m., I was scrolling down the list of the website I was using to find something interesting. After checking out a few lame things, I clicked on the Highschool of the Dead. The very first page, bam, zombies attacking big breasted chicks. I was already hooked because I'm total blood and gore fan but I wasn't expecting too much other than a constant bloodfest. By chapter three, I couldn't stop reading at all. While there was still some pretty read more
