Description
From Yen Press:

A mysterious illness is spreading rapidly through the halls of Fujimi High School. In a matter of hours, the campus is transformed from a place of learning into a hive of nightmares, as the infected students collapse and are reborn as flesh-hungry zombies! Only a handful of students escape the initial outbreak among them Takashi Komuro and his childhood friend, Rei. He manages to protect Rei from the initial onslaught, but how long can Takashi and the other students hope to survive when the whole school maybe the whole town is out for their blood?!

Boobies!!!
And that's it.
At least it manages to make every other aspects decent to not get any downgrade from me.... beside that bitchy main heroine.

Tonal issues, pacing issues, release issues.

Those three things sum up the problems with HotD.

Tonally, the series bounces between very serious to tongue-in-cheek in a flash. It has no idea if it wants to be an ecchi comedy with over the top action or some half-baked drama. And there in lies the issue. The series would be very enjoyable if it would just cut those serious bits out. Cut them out as apposed to focusing on the sincere parts which are obviously not the forte of the author.

Actually writing in general may not be a forte of the author, as the pacing of the manga is rather poor. Case and point: It takes a zombie manga like I am A Hero two and a half volumes to make it out of Tokyo while the cast of HotD is still meandering about with only the simplest development of the characters.

Lastly, the release schedule does the series no favors. This is a series with some potential as an ecchi dark comedy with over the top action, but the writer has little grasp on the concept of storytelling or entertaining and between the pacing issues and release schedule, I'd be in my 30's before this series made it anywhere interesting. Time to put it on the shelf.

This manga has some questionable characterdesigns which can´t deny their porn heritage.
And here lies the problem of this work. The artist mostly does hentai and "edgy" shonen manga and it shows. Just cliche after cliche and nonsensical fanservice but sadly no characterdevelopment or real story progression to speak of. The constant hiatuses also speak volumes of the quality of this work.

So read Walking Dead and the World War Z books instead.

Good read and genuinely scary

i think HOTD is a really good manga. yes there is a lot of fan service which is unneeded but what do expect from the artist. the story itself is one we all know and love, the zombie survival. the story is about a group of friends trying their best to survive in a zombie infested japan while they also struggle with their own moral codes.
As of around march/April 2011 the manga has been on hiatus but i think it will come back due to the popularity it has in america and i have also "heard" there will be a season 2 of the anime (fingers crossed) so hopefully it will come back soon since the story is good, the art is good (i cant believe i am saying this but there is a bit too much fan service for the genre) and overall it gives you a chill while reading and to be honest this manga is like the George A Romero of the manga world and is a must read for any zombie fans out there.

I watch the anime when I was around 9 years old and I didn't know what ecchi was.I kept finding it odd how they were always ending up with nearly no clothes.it was good but it gave me scary nightmares so read at your own risk.want to re read it but the fear is to much.

In case you haven't noticed, only the artist does Hentai, the author is a novelist. Personally, I feel the story is solid enough to be engaging and interesting, the ecchi is only an added bonus. But like the other guy said, this is a manga aimed at guys that like ecchiness(might be why they chose a hentai artist to illustrate the author's story), not some ecchi-hating woman.

Okay, but not great, just a turn-on series.

Hentai mangaka suck at doing series that are useful for anything else than turn-ons, and this series is no exception. It's just a whole lot of girls prancing around and getting their clothes ripped off and stuff.

Inazuma is a good hentai artist and I like his work. I just wish he would have gave this series more of a plot. All you get in this series is blood, zombies, boobs, and vaginas.

I'm a ecchi/fanservice anime/manga fan, but this series just doesn't cut it for me.

The Zombie Manga

Basically, this series is no more and no less than a depiction of a zombie invasion in manga form. Throw in some ecchi and one of my favorite female manga characters of all time and you have a very solid zombie manga.

At first reading this it was a decent story and then it got me thinking what the hell would I do if such an event were to unfold and I ended up buying machetes and rations along with water....... the fear is unyielding.
