The color and the quality of drawing is great!

What makes this a must have for fans is the collection of full color pin up art spread out amongst the chapters and on the inside of the cover.

I would recommend this manga to anyone, even people who aren't big into anime and manga have a high probability of enjoying it!

Note: I'm reviewing the omnibus itself, not the story.

I'm pleasantly surprised with this omnibus version. I originally purchased it because it's cheaper than buying the volumes individually and I wasn't expecting great quality.

Being hard cover it will survive more usage than the flimsy paperback omnibus editions most companies are putting out now. It's the size of a large text book, not the small paperback size manga usually comes in. The pages are glossy white and all of the text is clearly printed in large lettering.

Having never read manga in color I didn't know what to expect, now I wish all manga came in color! Maybe it's because I'm just a casual manga reader, but I have trouble telling characters apart and figuring out what is going on in scenes where there is a lot of vaguely drawn detail but no shading. I didn't have any problems with this omnibus. I liked seeing the zombies, apocalyptic scenery and little details in crisp color. In the future I would definitely purchase colored manga over black and white, even if it came at a higher cost.

So, If you're not offended by manga being printed in full color or just want to save money when purchasing the first four volumes I highly recommend buying this edition.

When I first saw that Yen Press was releasing a full color omnibus I was excited but didn't expect to buy it. I don't have the black and white prints and for a college student 50$ is pretty steep. Amazon however was selling it for 30$ and there are four complete volumes in it, so it's actually a better deal to buy the omnibus and I am so glad I did. I usually don't like the omnibus editions of things because they are thick and paperback and the spines get ruined so easily but not only is this a full color omnibus edition, it is also hardcover. Score!

I have actually only ever watched the anime, never got around to reading the manga but so far it seems pretty similar. I loved the story and art of the series and if you know anything about the series than you should probably be able to figure out if you would like it or not pretty easily. If you are offended by big boobs, panty shots and gore than this probably isn't for you. None of that bothers me however and a manga about zombies is something I am all over. Soon Yen Press is going to release Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? too!

Back to the product, I am not sure what the black and white editions had as far as extras go but the large full color photos are a great edition to the series that you can't get from the anime, and the cover alone makes the book worth it. The cover is textured on one side which adds depth and best of all, it's reversible! The color adds clear distinction between things that sometimes confuse me in action packed manga printed in black and white. Overall I would say this is a great purchase.

I'm not going to talk about the content of the manga, but I would strongly suggest you research it to see if you would like it as it isn't for everyone.

The book dusk jacket is awesome for lack of a better word. Its very smooth and feels of very high quality. The blood hand prints have texture to them which adds so much to the presentation. What I think is especially cool is if you take the dusk jacket off there is a poster of two of the leading characters in a very um....provocative pose. I imagine if you like this manga you will appreciate it. They not only did a wonderful job with the outside but the inside is equally amazing. The paper they printed on is glossy and has a thickness to it you just don't get with your standard manga today. They did a fantastic job with the coloring of not only the characters and environment but also with the sound effects. Another huge plus is the size. It is just slightly smaller than your standard notebook paper, and it's hardcover. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this.

If you are a fan/collector then its a no-brainer, even if you have the regular editions you still have to get this. It is that impressive. On a side note I definitely think more manga should do this. I would re-buy every manga in my collection if they would release them in the way they have done here.

I know this manga isn't going to be for everyone. There are a lot of unneeded pantie shots, and some of the females characters have unrealistically large breasts that jump around at every opportunity, but I didn't really see any reason to fuss over this. There are a lot of things I find odd in manga and anime, but that never destroys the experience overall for me. High school of the Dead is fast paced, and filled with plenty of gory zombie face smashing. The story centers around a group of mainly high school students trying to survive and find their family. The story stayed very interesting to me throughout all the content contained in this book.

If you're looking to buy the Highschool of the Dead manga the Omnibus is the way to go. It's much cheaper to buy the Omnibus vs the four black and white manga volumes. I find the color was well done, and added more feeling to the story. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys horror comics, and doesn't have a problem with the sexualization of the female characters.
