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?!

This is one of the most gruesome gnarly series ever! it sort of reminds me of Gantz, and it is fucking amazing! If you like action, gore, psychological, fan service and awesomeness then High School of the Dead is a must read!

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.

I didn´t enjoy a manga since Tenjou Tenge like I enjoy HSOTD. It´s like Resident Evil combined with Dead Rising, but the characters are not macho SWAT guys armed to the teeth. It offers a new side to the zombie tales (manga, at least, I don´t enjoy movies of the sort) where the main characters are people with our age (mine at least) figthing between survival, "them" and their will to remain humans (souls, thoughts and the works). I probably like this manga so much because of the OMG! girls (my favorite being Saeko-san), the always present possibility of a turnabout in any direction and the fact that I can relay with some of the characters.

Anyways I strongly recommend this masterpiece.

This is an unpretentious manga. It's entertainment and nothing else; it fulfils this role admirably. Attractive girls, weapon + military fetishism, zombies, etc... all highschoolboy-level *fun*. The plot is just: zombie attack (caused by virus), group of people have to live. Fair enuff! From this I would normally grant this series a 7.5 but I raise it to 9 bcos: the characters and their interactions are relatively interesting and original (just *relatively*. considering most zombie genre I mean). The art and production values are perfect. I can't think of a single fault at all in how it looks (unless you care much about realism). And tho this technically doesn't count, the quality of the Xamayon scanlation is flawless (and they don't even ask you to register to DL! They deserve to be paid well for this work). And it has some interesting events that stand out (yes, that's vague.) So: 8.8 This is an excellent series.

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.

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?".

Inazuma what more can I say. Beautiful detailed artstyle and background combined with his love for perverse things combined with gore. Let's also not forget that if you love zombie stories/movies, this is something you should check out. Love the funny little references as well to other zombie and non zombie movies/stories.

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.
