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.
Wow was that a mistake. The animation and characters are up to snuff but this is only 16 minutes long. not even a full length episode. If you can see it free somewhere, it might be fun, but even in the $6-7 range-add on shipping and it just is NOT worth it.
They couldn't be bothered to give fans a full length episode, why should you give them your money?
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.
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!Read more ›
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.

It's a single 15 minute (half length) episode! This at most should be extra content on the disk for the first season. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Richard W.
