Ratings & Reviews
Most of the time I don't ever feel like watching zombie flicks. Not my cup o tea. I've only seen the first episode by buying it on my Playstation network last night, but today I am going to order the box set and probably the manga next. From what I have seen the main character isn't some pansy who later learns to take charge. From the start you see him assess the situation in no time allowing him and a couple others take a step ahead before mass panic breaks loose. The resolve he shows to do what is needed is a nice breather from the original 'I don't know what to do' main characters. As far as other characters go you get a little back story on them in the first episode. I'll see more as once I order the rest of the series.
ON A SIDENOTE: IF you don't care for fan service there is a lot just in the first episode and even the opening animation. As I get older it gets tiresome seeing a lot of it in manga and anime. The good thing I thought though was by the time I got to the end of the first episode I was thinking that there was no way 30 min had passed already. ^^ It brought me in to the show and had me hooked and I didn't even realize it until it was over. In my opinion just from watching the first episode it is worth checking out. Also look up the comment under the Volume 1 of the manga for more insight from another persons review.
AWSOME MOVIE u have to make some more ill buy it all
please make a 2:nd episode!!
I read all the manga before watching the anime first. Then saw the Japanese with English subtitles. If you like zombies, guns, hilarious moments, gruesome, some tragedy, and sexy girls then you will like HOTD.
Another anime and manga go unfinished
by QR Winner -
I really like this anime a whole lot. That's why it is very disappointing that both the anime and manga go unfinished. It is literally the walking dead of/for anime except with better humor, characters, story, plot and fanservice. As a heads up, you probably just want to rent the OVA if you have the option. It was boring, short, didn't add to story, and the fanservice dept wasn't even that great.
Actually really good
It took me a long time to getting around to watching this. What made me finally commit was the realization of who the artist was and that I enjoy his other work so much. This series does not disappoint. It is beautifully animated and the story is compelling. Plenty of action and eye candy abound.
Corny but cool

It's a good title if you like zombies and anime. The action is corny but on purpose. Tons of fan service too.
Kill the zombies and survive
by Mike -
An interesting show. A lot more blood than I expected, but it is full of zombies so it makes sense. Really fun characters. Some over the top fan service, but still great fun!
High School of the Dead has great story and characters. Music is cool. Action and fan service is awesome. You'll get to see each characters determination as they escape zombies and try to find their families.
A fun ride to the zombie apocalypse

I watched the previews of this before I got it and this time the previews don't show all the good parts since there are so many of them. An as soon as I got this I watched all 300 mins the first day and enjoyed every min. of it.
