4.0 out of 5 stars A short fanservice filled side story. 26 Jun 2014
By Matt
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Basically this is a short fanservice filled side story with the characters in an island setting. It's not meant to be taken seriously and if anything is just a harmless bit of fun for the fans.

Number of Episodes: 1
Format: DVD
Audio: English/Japanese
Subtitles: English
Region: 1
Length: About 16 minutes

The length reflects in the price, which is fair on here. I also thought the dub was decent enough. Hopefully we'll get a Season 2 announcement at some point.

2.0 out of 5 stars Note the running time 4 Aug 2013
By Goblin Town - Published on
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Its 15 minutes long. 8 Dec 2013
By M. Laudenslager - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good buy 16 Feb 2014

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

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining - yet strange story 1 Aug 2013
By Anime Lover - Published on
The group finds themselves on a tropical island, seemingly free from the outbreak. AS the gang enjoys some time that does not involve killing zombies or fighting to survive, it is when they set a fire of some leaves that things get "interesting". Can they snap out of it before something bad happens?

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars HOTD OVA 14 Aug 2013
By v4vendetta - Published on
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 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.
