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!

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.

I really enjoyed High School of the Dead, an anime based on the manga about teens surviving a zombie apocalypse. Beyond the great animation and action the stories also served as a warning to Japanese culture about being too stuck in existing forms. It’s the ones who dare to be different that survive, those who conform tended to be among the first casualties. So when I saw this, another episode? I jumped.

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?

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.

17 min episode is all it is. Not even a great episode. I feel like this should have come with season 1.

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.

There is no nudity and moderate fan service. The violence is brief and zombie related. Suitable for children 15+.

The Ova is short, very short. The price was low (8 bucks) and I'm a huge fan of HOD so I figured why not? The girls from the main story are cute and the animation/voice acting of the series is always great. There is very little plot line to this Ova and it doesn't add anything to the general mythos of the series... I was kind of disappointed. If you're thinking of buying this strictly for the fan service you might be disappointed as well. The girls are in cute bathing suits. However, if you're expecting something more revealing than that, it isn't there.

If you have free Amazon Prime and free shipping AND this is 8 bucks or less, pick it up.

This is a single episode in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. This episode doesn't have zombies. It does have very large cartoon bosoms with near nudity in the episode (minor nudity in prologue). The kids act out some kind of fantasy due to smoking fish. It looks like it would be a great series, but have priced themselves out of my range. I will wait for a price drop to watch the entire series.

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.
