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?!

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

ugh...I'm usually into horror mangas, but "high school of the dead" just doesn't have what it takes to interest the audience...but the art is good though

Girls, fanservice, zombies, guns, and every premise a horror/action genre can throw at you. Great for casual reading, and the character development is not that bad either, but it remains to be seen as not all the backstory of the main characters are revealed as yet.

As of this point, I feel that the progress of the group's survival and objectives are depicted too slowly, and has eroded my interest in the series.

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.

This manga has some questionable character designs at first glance which can´t deny their porn heritage and here lies the main 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 character development or real story progression to speak of. The constant hiatuses also speak volumes of the quality of this work.
So read The Walking Dead and the World War Z books instead. I Am a Hero (8,5/10) further proves mangaka can do a zombie apocalypse as good as anyone else so go and read it. That one even bother to have actual sex/violence and a real romance in it so leave this childish power fantasy at the wayside.

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.

when i first read this series i loved it, but when i came back to read it after the hiatus, i have to say i was substantially less impressed, i mean, you already know who will die, namely everyone other than the main 7 or so characters, and those guys aren't even that well developed, asside from the standard 2-d 1-line descriptions, like "the previously under acheving leader", "love interest A, the angry one with a sword" ect. and just to put it out there, i fucking hate "fan service", if i want porn, i'll go download some, it ain't that fucking hard to find, cause i like my commics panty-shot-free just like i like my porn story-free

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.

Too cartoony

Too cartoony to take seriously as a zombie movie. Shaun of the Dead did well combining it with comedy and a good story but this isn't a comedy. Just a zombie horror with little horror, or tension, and the art is too pervy for the kind of atmosphere that belongs to a zombie apocolypse. The characters aren't immediately great either. And I guess doing school kids is different in the zombie genre but so typical of manga.

You know what, It's not okay. This is just getting fame cause its japanese and it's anime/manga and it's doing the zombie genre. While getting some audience due to the tits and ass. This is low, it's stupid, and it's not well done and I can't take it anymore. It sucks.

Just go read Biomeat instead.
