Takeya Yuki is in love with her school. And why wouldn't she be? It's the place where she was introduced to the joys of school clubs! Or, more specifically, one school club: the School Life Club. Rii-chan the president, Megu-nee the advisor and her fellow member Kurumi are always there for her.

Yes, Takeya Yuki loves school... Or so she keeps telling herself. Because living with that lie everyday is a lot easier than facing the reality of this particular "school" and the nature of its "club activities"...

I don't really like the current arc of Gakkou Gurashi!, but prior? A sad, unique, brilliant masterpiece.

There's a lot I could say about this manga -- and I did, in a long review for it below. I don't want to talk too much about it, but I think the first part of the series is phenomenal, while the second part (the current arc) ranges from "not really good" to "very bad", and it is usually very bad. Used to really love this one...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I don't think we are. I've read up to 24 and I'm done with this boring crap. There are a lot of issues here to cover and I'll avoid actual spoilers.
You're telling me a string bean from the track club has the weight behind her to smash zombie heads in with one hit with something that looks like a fold-up shovel (more like a glorified spade, the one-handed garden variety)? NO! Zombies are attracted to the light from a glow stick (they watched it fly through the air in one panel)? BS! Zombies cover their ears when a sort of portable alarm is sounded? What?! Nobody has tried going inside the school for supplies? Doubtful! Only girls seem to have survived and there are no males (not a spoiler, categories and genres give that away)? Beyond improbable!
There are many more, but I'd be giving away too much. This manga is incredibly child-friendly, while incredibly boring at the same time. Nothing ever happens. The only part that could have been interesting after seeing this was the psychological aspect, but there's only a page or two worth every 5 chapters aside from the first 3-4 chapters (an exaggeration, but just barely) and it NEVER furthers character development. This is like survival for people who have all the time in the world. In fact, I'm having a harder time surviving it's lack of plot.
I tried to get into it. I really did. Normally I don't mind a manga like this, but NOTHING HAPPENS! It may as well be episodic. Here's a better summary:
Oh no, the world has ended at the hands of some slow-walking zombies! A few girls pretend zombie apocalypse never happens. To their surprise, it works! Aside from the occasional zombie who's weakness is basically a girl swinging a flyswatter, their carefree days of living inside an abandoned squatter's den starts! Time to play "academics no longer matter since much is taught on the basis that electricity will still be running, but we'll play school anyways!"

Nope. Nope. Nope. This is not a cute girls doing cute things manga. This is the best thing ever since I am a Hero, and I mean it is better than High School of the Dead.

I really enjoy this, from the characters to the drama to the tragedy. One of the manga I am most engrossed in.

The gap between the moe designs and the realistic struggles that the characters have to endure, both psychologically and physically paint a vivid image of their conflicts. The author has brilliantly depicted believable, multi-faceted characters interacting with challenge after challenge in this beautiful piece of work. Highly recommended for anyone that enjoys the psychological genre.

An Amazing Combination of Moe and....

My advice is to do as I did and read this manga without reading a thing about it first!

The drawing was so unusually fine that it sucked me right into the story--above all because the girl heroes achieved a level of moe that was unmatched in my experience. Then the slow reveal of the situation that these fragile cuties were in became increasingly unsettling, until the story's development managed to produce in me a reaction of chronic dread. In short, the combination of such lovable characters and such a level of menace made this manga a peak story experience for me. I give it a 10, and I recommend it to everyone.

If you're familiar with the anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica, it has that same kind of set-up. It looks so cutesy and moe and you'd think there'd be lots of fanservice/ecchi moments (thank heavens there's no ecchi), but it's actually more serious and even deeper than that. It's like a Puella X The Walking Dead crossover. I jumped at it without knowing ANYTHING about it except that it's a horror seinen manga. I was really confused at first because most of the first chapter is like normal, except you can just feel there's something strange with the way the protagonist likes her school. And then... whoa. Just... whoa.

If you like zombies and drama (that's not annoying) and a lot of WHAM moments, this is a really good read. Hope it gets adapted into an anime series. Really sad that there's not much info posted about this series. Not even a wikipedia page.

If you like horror but pretty much prefers not seeing creepy things (like I do), this manga is VERY suitable for you. I enjoy reading this very much. The artwork is very cute and focuses on the appearances of the girls and not the zombies, and they never give a detailed view of zombies either. Yuki's view on things also gives some relief and uniqueness to the plot. It kind of reminds me of High School of the Dead, but it's way less terrifying and does NOT include ecchi.
