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?!

Hmm hmm, that one is pretty hard to judge. It has good aspects and bad aspects (exactly like every other story too). Let's begin with the bad aspects.
Suddenly there is an invasion of the dead and our protagonists react exactly like you expect them to react, they are scared and can't believe their eyes. No they don't, the react immeadiately to the situation with no fear but joy so that the reader has to assume that they were watching / playing resident evil all their lifes until now.
Since that is only concerning the beginning I think you can deal with that. The rest is relatively realistic, it even explains why a high schooler is able to handle fire arms so well (wohoo)!

Another negative aspect is the ecchiness. The apocalypse is coming, the dead are roaming the streets and the woman have to take a shower and compliment and cuddle each others tits. Well sounds good to me but that's not what you normally would do (but it would be nice if so).

Let's proceed to the good aspects. Hmm well we have our fire arms fetishist. I love that guy. He isn't walking around with a gun in each hand but he handels them quite well and realistic, nice one.
The story itself isn't what you would call boring, ok it could be better but it won't put you to sleep. In the end everyone has to decide that for oneself.
The action scenes are cleary and nice to follow, no one has super human abilities and sometimes they even react like normal humans would do.
So finally let's say if you like good action scenes don't need a LotR story and are not aversed to ecchi you will like that one.

Nice violence, that's it.

the story focus on two things.
Violence and ecchi, and thats it.
But the violence is well done, gun fetischists get their fill as all manner of high powered firearms pops up with little or bad explanations. And as always, there are someone running around with a katana...
Some gore, but not enough to make anyone sick, and not enough for those who really love it.
If you like ecchi, you will like this. several girls running around in skirts, everyone bathes together and clothes don't go a minute without getting ripped up or wet.

the story is inane, a basic zombie plot, some teenagers trying to survive, most grownups are retarded and there are some really old and stale views on the world.
I can't help feeling i have read this before...
Some characters help it along, and many of them have entertaining mental disorders or obsessions.
So, if you want an hour of nice violence and some boobs to help it along, this is for you, but don't expect a great story.

I gave it a try because the art is gorgeous, but you know what'll happen right in the beginning of the stroy. After i read the first 3 chapter i got bored. The story is about a group of kids trying to survive by killing zombie and so on. But I guess I'll read the end of this manga when its out cause i'm curious how the zombie invasion is going to stop.

I've read up to the 4th volume, and I must say, its been one hell of a ride. The action are well done, with the drama portion mixed in just for kicks. It shows the human nature, and at the same time human will to live.

Sure, its not exactly realistic, but its a damn manga. And I'm rooting for the fat guy "I'm the baddest motherf***** here". Damn awesome.

This manga won't satisfy hardcore horror fans. It's not really all that gory or scary. The focus is on story and characters, which is pretty good for this genre. What stands out most is definitely the art. It wouldn't surprise me if the artist took lessons from Masamune Shirow.

It really doesn't matter that the whole zombie thing has been done, this is an excellent example of story telling. The characters are all have definative identities which rub and clash against each other through the tides of suspense, action, and inactivity. Reading this I can't really be sure who might be the next to die, how they will die, or who they will die to. While some of the H content seems out of place (bath scene), most of it seems rather possible (for a zombie apocalypse). Even those characters that only have a brief existance in the manga have some depth to them, though I do kinda see that for the most part those outside the main group are considered expendable. And finally the art is very simply put as well done, and I can overlook that only hot girls seem to have been saved by using the simple logic that "if the world is gonna end wouldn't you grab the nicest piece of a** you could too keep with you?".

When Manga FINALLY has a zombie apocalypse!!!

if you like the western style of zombie apocalypse and japanese culture like me, this manga is definitely a must read!!!! much like George Romero's style of conflicts within the characters, this manga depicts the combination of stories you would only find on manga with a zombie apocalyptic twists into it. you can even see Simon Pegg ( Shaun of the Dead ) in this manga it was hilarious and i've always wanted to see manga or even anime characters get devoured by flesh-eating Stiffs!!!! lol hated the H-related scenes that didn't seem relevant to the story but i wish they would add a bit of conflict and that the zombies would later on adapt and be deadlier. I don't know it's just me because i'm getting tired of moronic stiffs i wanted to see them improve and be SMARTER like their former selves when they were living BUT think that's asking to much. BUT because i love zombie apocalypse themed stories so ill give this an 8 (lol Hard Gay was pointed out in this manga)

Meh, this is pretty much what you get if you cram a little bit of every horror movie into a manga. I feel that the ecchiness and the body proportions make for many loss of points though. It does show potential as it seems like it is making a good solid foundation. Lots of themes to be explored, foreshadowing, etc. Read it, try it, but dont expect anything groundbreaking for now if you've seen any of the late horror flicks. 7/10.

Well, I don't know where it goes but it's not very interesting or funny and the "sensual" (waisted word here) part is just boring. Really, nothing to compare with the Walking Dead or else. I hope the z-peoples will outsmart the gang to offer something interesting later.

interesting story with a zombie-infested world. But why keep the title "Highschool.." when it already spreads entire world. Maybe "A doomed world" will be better instead smile
