A HUGE 700 page volume collecting all 17 acts plus one bonus act of High School of the Dead.
Beautiful color! Why isn't all Manga released like this?
Very high quality. Spine seems strong, pages are high quality. Seems like this edition could last a long time through multiple reads
Extras: The dust jacket, it's a poster! And a darn cool one. Also, throughout the book are various pinups and promo art as well as sketches and biographies of the characters.
It should be noted that this book is rated M for mature and does contain a lot of violence as well as nudity
Definitely recommended. Great reference material for aspiring anime/manga artists!

Like the original Japanese release, this edition is printed in full colour, and double the usual size of manga pages. It has a sturdy hard cover, and the slip cover has a poster in the inside. With the first four volumes included, the cost works out to just $9.00 per volume, which is a third less than the black and white, small paperback manga volumes. You can't lose. If you like High School of the Dead or horror/vampire stories with a touch of romance/harem, this is for you!
