Product Description

The broadcast series High School of the Dead (2010) opens on an ordinary day at Fujima Academy in Tokyo--until hordes of zombies begin attacking people. Anyone who's bitten by them is either devoured or turned into a zombie. Sophomore Takashi Komuro, four of his friends, and Ms. Shizuka, the overendowed school nurse, fight their way out of the school and struggle to survive in a world gone mad. Using swords, baseball bats, and an arsenal of high-tech weapons and vehicles, the teenagers beat, blast, and flatten their grisly foes. The cause of the zombie plague is just one of the many important plot points that's never explained, but director Tetsuro Araki isn't really interested in presenting a coherent story. He keeps the camera looking up the girls' skirts, down their blouses, or at blank walls that get splattered with blood. In one shot certain to go down in fan-service history, he follows a projectile over one girl's breasts and under another's skirt--in slow motion. Hormonal adolescent boys who enjoy the juxtaposition of jiggle shots and blood baths are the obvious audience for High School of the Dead; other viewers should approach it with caution. (Rated TV MA VSD: graphic violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, cannibalism, nudity, sexual situations, profanity, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Zombies that Hunger for Fan Service! May 17 2011
Format:DVD
If you are looking for an exciting anime series that involves a zombie apocalypse then look no further than High School of the Dead.
The storyline follows several high school students & their struggles to survive as an unusual plague, that transforms innocent humans into homicidal cannibals, brings widespread destruction to a populace within a city in Japan & later becomes worldwide. The main protagonist is a male high school delinquent name Komuro, Takashi whom along with his fellow companions & the school nurse survive the initial outbreak of the zombie pandemic & attempt to escape their school to flee for safety. However, with the risk of the zombie pandemic infecting them as well, they must abandon their code of morality & either bypass the many hordes of zombies unnoticed or go on a carnage (massacre) campaign & murder everyone, zombie or not, whom opposes their desire to remain human. One feature of this anime series is that it attempts to reduce the anxiety brought on by the entire bloodshed & societal destruction with the use of fan service & lots of it! Short seifuku shirts, revealing lingerie & cleavage, some nudity, & well endowed female characters!
The plot is well integrated & paces the storyline perfectly by ensuring that balance is maintained between scenes of gruesome carnage to comedic perversion & epic fighting or killing scenes.
The voice acting portrays the characters emotions & attitudes perfectly with very little signs of lethargic expressions. Dialogue is very tense & urgent due to the zombie emergency but still retains some compassionate & deep remorseful feelings. Very well developed anime series that mixes a apocalypse of zombies with fan service & perversion.
I recommend this anime series.
Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great take on the zombie genre May 23 2011
Format:Blu-ray
High School Of The Dead is one of those anime series that you show to a friend who has never seen anime and a month later you see the series in their movie collection.

There series follows high school students during a zombie apocalypse / viral outbreak, however you want to look at it flesh eating zombies are everywhere. Takashi is the tough guy of the high school but is good friends with many students. He takes charge during this crisis and helps save his friends Rei Miyamoto, Saeko Busujima, Saya Takagi, Kohta Hirano and Shizuka Marikawa; the high school's nurse. As their journey continues they will meet many different people good and bad, and it will test the level of peoples morality and sanity.

I really enjoyed this series. The animation is fantastic, it`s got a lot of Japanese school girl fan service but it`s the action it does not let up and the character development is fantastic you really get to know these characters and watch them change in crisis. The pacing of the series is very well done.

I can`t say enough about how good high school of the dead really is. If you like Zombies don`t miss this series. My only issue is the pricing is very high for a 12 episode series, but it`s still one of the best series of 2010. Highly Recommended.

By D. Hill TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I actually borrowed this DVD series from a friend (though will now be pursuing my own BluRay!) because he knows I am a Zombie fan.

I do also like anime, but admit I am a novice when it comes to the finer points of Japanese animation.

ANY zombie fan should endeavour to make this part of your collection, period. It is the quintessential, Romero style, survival struggle zombie film. Unknown cause, worldwide calamity, limited science or knowledge by the "players".

It follows the formula: what the heck is happening; what do we do about it; HOW do we do that; where can we go; who can be trusted; will we survive; what's next?
And it's done very well.

There are the occassional plot gaps, but they are easy to overlook. I liked that this did not throw in the Hollywood requirement of "we must know what happened while we struggle to survive". There are no explanations, there aren't even any suggestions. There is a theory or two briefly pondered, but it is never made a key point, nor should it. Survivors will always wonder what happened, but they will focus on how to stay alive. I like the mystery that they are just dealing, and not trying to become Nobel researchers. Hollywood always feels they need to establish the disaster, then have the players cope. If (when?) there ever were a sudden biological pandemic, most people would not know what happened or how. They'd just be worrying about staying alive.

This is only 12 episodes, and unfortunately while it "wraps up" the primary story line (mostly), I can't help but feel there should have been more, as though a second season might be planned.
