Editorial Reviews

It began without warning. It continues without mercy. Now a band of high schoolers join forces with guns, swords, baseball bats and anything else they can get their hands on to battle a bloodthirsty, flesh-hungry zombie apocalypse. Slashing action, stunning animation, and jawdropping excitement make High School Of The Dead the most hotly anticipated adventures of the year. For horror fans and animation addicts alike, nothing offers the high-energy adrenaline of High School Of The Dead!

Highschool of the dead is a zombie anime with plenty of action, ecchi, and funny situations. The story starts out in the private high school of the character Takashi when he first starts to see the zombie plague spreading in his school his first reaction is to try to save the girl that hes loved (Rei) since he was a small child by picking her up from her classroom and getting her to
a safe place. The situation quickly escalates as the infection spreads to the whole school and they quickly have to evacuate the school to get to a safer place. Along the way they meet other students and a nurse who have survived the zombie plague and they make their escape from the zombie infested school to the city.

Much of the film is spent running from zombies and taking shelter from place to place while showing how the world has turned into total chaos and anarchy all around them as the zombie plague spreads.There are so many scenes with bouncing boobies, naughty poses, revealing outfits and girls moaning over anything that it feels like im watching a porno film with action in it. Not to say thats a bad thing but sometimes it feels like its a little over the top for a normal anime.

The first season was pretty short (12 episodes) but it had some good foundations laid out for character relationships in season 2 (mostly Rei & Saeko with Takashi) or possibly even Saya with Kohta after seeing episode 12 (although she likes Takashi alot more). It will be interesting to see a season 2 if they ever make one to see if any of the other main characters familys survived the zombie plague and to find out what the cause of the plague was to begin with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well done. Zombie action anime. July 8, 2011
By Vrak
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I finally finished the Blu-Ray so I figured I would give my 2 cents on the anime. I was very impressed with the dubbing in this particular version of HotD. I've over time become somewhat used to bad dubbing in Japanese anime so I was glad to hear the voice actors putting in a lot of effort. They really did a good job of making the characters sound and act realistically.

The Blu-Ray itself has great quality and because of that and the fact that it's uncut I noticed things that I never noticed in the original airing. The audio quality is also top notch.

It has simple packaging with 2 Blu-Ray's. Eight episodes on the first disc and four episodes on the second disk.

Like others have mentioned it is an action packed zombie apocalypse style anime with lots of blood, fan service, and a bit of vulgar language. Nothing worse than the kind you hear on the streets. You can learn much more about its contents from the current highest rated review so I won't go into a lot of detail. I mainly just wanted to touch on how impressed I was with the quality of this version.

Overall Rating 5/5 stars. Enjoy the anime.

4.0 out of 5 stars Could have been perfect. April 4, 2011
Format:DVD
By now we're all well aware of and are probably active participants in the media zombie pandemic. What began with classic horror films has spawned countless novels, comics, television, comedies, video games, and everything else you can see or hear, infecting pop culture with the undead virus. But I have been wondering something for quite some time now: when will anime represent for the walking dead? Well, that question has been answered, fellow animation fanatics. Highschool of the Dead is here and delivering the thrills of classic Romero and the coolness of The Walking Dead, while utilizing the full spectrum of the anime genre to make this zombie apocalypse stand out as it's own animal. And it is so close to perfectly awesome it hurts.

Before I whine about the show's failing, let me fill you in on the good. There's lots of it. Right from the get-go Highschool of the Dead gets your heart racing with pure horror and some of the coolest action sequences ever animated. As the sudden invasion quickly spreads through the halls of the high school, we are introduced to the individuals who will become our heroes. While most students panic and quickly become prey to the ever-increasing host of ghouls, a few individuals pull it together and improvise means to fight back. The otaku gun nut. The kendo princess. The ordinary kid whose best is brought out by extraordinary circumstances. The haughty intellectual. The airheaded school nurse. Over the first two episodes, these people will coalesce into a force to be reckoned with. The show does an admirable job of remaining character-based and developing the relationships between it's survivors well after the extremely hectic initial outbreak, and as far as opening salvos go in survival horror, this show takes the damn cake for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kick-butt, zombiriffic, slaughterfest November 19, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Sure, I've had my fill of zombiedom. Zombie this, zombie that. At first I thought "Man, another living dead knock off." It is, but as far as the genre goes, it's pretty darn good. The standard zombie rules apply, with some new twists. The guys are mostly natural zombie killers. The girls fall in to two classes: Brazier busting bazongas that are useless in a fight (bouncy eye candy) and Brazier busting bazongas that are phenomenal in a fight (even bouncier eye candy). Seriously.

The zombie fight scenes are cool - this is Anime like Romero would do Anime. Most parts are pretty darn realistic, even if the girls are really, er, rhymes with twitchy. You really, really want to see a couple of them get killed off in the first couple of episodes, but things normalize around the fourth episode.

If you like quality Anime with the requisite bust size and high-school based plots, this is a no braiiner.

Will it be censored?
Censorship was VERY minor in the TV edition. Basically a brief clip of someone commiting suicide, and a few random nipple shots.

But yes, uncensored, very much uncensored on Blu Ray/DVD.
You'd think considering the content, this show is uncensored anyway, lots of big huge boobs, panty shots,...

It costs more, and doesn't include free shipping. No thanks! I am aware that makes me incredibly cheap, but that's why I shop on Amazon.

OVA?
OVA was nothing more than tits on the beach, and more tits, and simply tits touching tits, and not much else, it has no effect on the story, other than zombies appear and the tits end.

You can google the OVA and watch streamed online after buying the DVD, it'l never come out here, they're not... Read More

Anyone know if this is region locked?
Region A only, as noted by most reviews here, and on the pictures which show the back of the case on Amazon, and the fact I own the Blu Ray.

Hope that answers your questions.

Huge!!
I agree with the fact this series will be a cash cow for Sentai Filmworks, and given their track record they really needed this, especially if it goes into a second season which I am REALLY praying for. I don't think girls, zombies, and gore accurately defines the series well enough though. The... Read More
