Editorial Reviews

When an unplanned stop on a deserted island gives Takashi, Saeko and the rest of the ragged band of survivors a chance to expose themselves to something other than zombie bites for a change, they're more than ready to take a break and let their hair down. Discovering the remnants of an old beach store, the entire group strips to swimsuits and sets out to make the uninhabited island inhabitable, but they're unaware that this seeming paradise is actually just the dead calm before the storm. Because sometimes the recently deceased aren't the only problems that can lie buried in the sand, and as the swimwear comes off and the inhibitions come down, a kink in the island's food chain sets a truly shocking series of events into motion! You won't believe what comes out next, but suffice it to say that the deserted island may not be so deserted after all! It's an extra special H.O.T.D. that's even hotter than usual as the naked and the dead come together like never before in HIGH SCHOOL OF THE DEAD - DRIFTERS OF THE DEAD!

2.0 out of 5 stars Note the running time August 3, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
While I thoroughly enjoyed High School of the Dead, and highly recommend it on Blu Ray if you are into fan service heavy, zombie, action anime, this tiny episode should have been included as a bonus feature on that set and not as its own full release. 16 minutes? Really?

I've seen the episode they are putting on there. While it is a fun, enjoyable episode, I really can't recommend paying $9 for it. Your choice though, just be aware of what you are getting.

2.0 out of 5 stars Its 15 minutes long. December 7, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a 15 minute, mostly fan service clip. I was expecting some actual episodes. If you're into fan service type anime this delivers, but it really has nothing to do with the story. I was pretty disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good buy February 15, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
17 min episode is all it is. Not even a great episode. I feel like this should have come with season 1.

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining - yet strange story August 1, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
The group finds themselves on a tropical island, seemingly free from the outbreak. AS the gang enjoys some time that does not involve killing zombies or fighting to survive, it is when they set a fire of some leaves that things get "interesting". Can they snap out of it before something bad happens?

This story does not really have a place between the first and soon to be coming second season, but it is a good escape from the horror that they have had to endure so far. A good hold over until they bring the new season over and we learn the fates of this group and the world they reside in.

2.0 out of 5 stars HOTD OVA August 13, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
While our favorite band of survivors from the series does make an appearance in the OVA (they don on swimsuits too and scour a somewhat marooned island) the storyline here has little relevance to the Highschool of the Dead main story. I'm not going to give any details out, but you can expect a heaping helping of ecchi, though there isn't really any "full" nudity (and thus no censors).

Personally (and I repeat, PERSONALLY) I found the OVA to be tedious and a little boring compared to the main story frame. Basically ridiculous actions lead to ridiculous delusions which in turn lead to ridiculous ecchi scenes. Again, no connection to the brain bashing, zombie milling storyline in the prior 12 episodes.

I'd say, take a miss with this. Nine bucks just isnt worth it. Not sure why the OVA would be sold by itself, let alone who is going to pick it up by itself.... Unless the cover art appeals to you as a collectors item (as of current Amazon.com doesn't display, but I caught it in a Tokyopop news mail). If you're going to purchase any HOTD Dvd/bluray at all, I recommend buying the series as a whole.

By JPL
Format:Blu-ray
High School of the Dead is a fantastic yet interesting anime series combining the Zombie Apocalypse with colorful characters and tons of fan service. The story chronicles the lives of 5 high school students (2 male, 3 female), the school nurse and a little girl who fight off a spreading zombie epidemic as they try to escape to safety. However, the interesting part comes in that all the girls are buxom beauties (save for the loli girl) that find their way into revealing outfits while still finding a way to smash, crush, and annihilate hordes of the undead. Yet, you still grow with the characters through their personal struggles and situations...as well as witness the destruction of society and the psychological effects such devastation has on normal humans. Any fans of Shonen, Harem, Apocalypse and Ecchi will certainly have a delight with the 1st anime season.

With all of this, they still find time for the stereotypical "beach" episode in the form of this 16 minute OVA. This particular episode was a bonus for anyone who purchased the 7th manga volume in Japan and supplies a welcome break from the dramatic action that our heroes have encountered. However, be prepared...this is a comedic fan service fest and not much more.

Stumbling across an island, our characters believe that they have finally found a safe haven to take a well needed rest from the end of the world. After discovering an abandoned hut, the only clean clothing they find are skimpy bathing suits for the older women, a speedo for Takashi and an elementary female swimsuit for everyone's favorite hefty male gun enthusiast! I won't give too much more away but lets just say that when hallucinations start affecting the crew, it sends the sexual urges of our heroes into a frenzy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware: it's only one episode! January 2, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I bought it and like it because I know what I was getting. Just be warned that this is for one OVA episode, or original video animation. It's essentially a extra, direct-to-video episode that not canon; it's a filler episode. It's also a quintessential anime "beach episode." There's lots of skin and some funny sexual humor. If you like Highschool of the Dead, you'll love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Full of fan-service!!! July 17, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I already own the first 12 episodes. The story does not help advance the main plot-line; it's just a "day at the beach episode", which is something almost all animes have. Full of fan-service!!!

Pros: Great addition for fans of the series.

Cons: Only one episode no extras.
