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

Story: 9 : It sounds simple because it is. It's about the world getting taken over by zombies and how a small group of 3 girls, 2 boys, and 1 woman survive. But, whats really great about it is that, even though the plot is straight-forward, the characters are what really drive this thing forward. Random plot tickets aren't handed out by distant power/authority figures. Fate has no hand in anything. It's all the characters deciding what to do, when to do it, and how to get it done. Everything. This focuses on their development from "civilized" humans read more

What you should first know about manga, if you've seen the anime, is that it has much less fanservice than anime. And that's why it's better. There is still read more

Warning: There may be minor spoilers. I don't go into detail, but if you're really worried, please just scroll down to the enjoyment section and beyond.

Highschool of the Dead. A franchise that is as much of a joke as it is a failure. Well, at least, that what some people think. There are a number of people who just can't look past the "bullet dodging boobs" and the apron-wearing, breast smother antics of the series' heroines. As a former member of that mindset, I at first could not stomach the cheesiness of the work, simply because I thought it had no substance. However, after read more
