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?!

Well, not the best, but its pretty interesting. For a horror manga its pretty low-grade, but its ok, I guess.

It also sorta reminds me of I am legend, with the entire zombie outbreak thing.

it's 10/10. If you look for a serious series, don't read!! The art works is superb, girls are hot, yet very innocent and unique. They have personalities too, that's a plus. Reading this manga is like having a nice action dream, you know what's gonna happen, but you wanna see it happen and you enjoy it.

I think the story has been well done so far. It has really shown the true human condition when faced with survival at the most basic level. Either people will give up, fight, or go crazy. Humans will also have a strong urge to reproduce (thus the echii scenes ... even with the same sex ... it is a release of tension) Ok ... enough psychology. I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

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.

"Zombies have been done to death" (Pun intended), is a line of episode 200th of SG1, and its true. It really isnt and original idea, but i believe its quite different to what has been done before, thoough i havend readed any zombie themed manga apart from HSOTD, but i like the story so far and I love the Art ;D.

The story started really promising but went in the wrong direction imo.

I sure love to read these stories about surviving but this one made me felt like i didn't cared. The dialogues are poor and uninteresting most of the times and the characters look a little bit too relaxed for my taste. I don't know about you but I wouldn't be so carefree if I was in the same situation.
If you are looking for something more realistic / serious, then be prepared to be dissapointed.
