Book Description

7 Jan 2014 Highschool of the Dead Color Omnibus (Book 2)
Takashi and his fellow students join up with a band of survivors who have barricaded themselves inside a local mall. Though the shopping center seems a well-stocked place to hide from the undead lurking outside, the policewoman in charge is having a hard time maintaining peace within. As the mall refugees grow restless, Takashi and his comrades make plans to leave before Officer Asami's authority slides further and the group's order is completely undone. Unfortunately, just as final preparations for their departure are nearly complete, the mall's defenses are breached, and "they" come streaming in. Their fortress has become a trap - can anyone hope to escape the mall of the dead?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Round 2 26 April 2011
By Jeremiah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are browsing for volume two, then you are already likely sold on the idea of Daisuke and Shoji Sato's zombie apocalypse. However, if you're wondering whether or not investing into the series will be worth it or not, try not to listen to the critics too much...

Whereas it's true that you cannot expect gold to be dripping off of a zombie genre's plot sequence, High school of the Dead moves the plot around in a believable sense- making the characters feel extremely human even in such impossible circumstances. Whether it's finding their first gun (something that's a little more important in Japan) fending off crazed survivors or rescuing a helpless little girl, there's a decent amount of action to be expected.

Another point of criticism would be the character development, which comes together a little more during this volume. I always operate with the idea that in a series where the characters can be eaten in the next panel what little is said between them is more important than if they could spend an infinite amount of time in a care free environment. Either way, Volume 2 had the characters make large steps in making me want them to live.

And finally, the fan service. It continues in this volume, of course, and it is actually home to the most fan serviced scenes in the entire series. However, the art and undeniable feeling in the pages were enough for me to overlook the fan service (which really isn't that bad if you watched the anime adaptation).

5.0 out of 5 stars A good quality book for a great series! 18 Dec 2013
By Brandon Groseclose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This review is going to be based on the quality of the book itself. It will not be on the content of the storyline. If you have issues with half-naked illustrations of fictional women, suggestive situations involving them, and extreme gore and violence then this series simply isn't for you. Omnibus 2 covers volumes 5-7.

Now the quality of the book itself is similar to the omnibus edition volume 1. It comes hardback with a nice dust jacket that has a reversible illustration on the underside. The actual hardback cover has the same illustration as the dust jacket sans some of the blood censoring. Full color (in case anyone had a question). The size of each page is 10 inches length (bigger than most manga by a long shot). The paper is of high quality and the ink doesn't smear when rubbed (an issue with some color pages in other manga). The thing I like about this omnibus edition is that the binding is well done and you don't have to worry about creasing the spine by opening it.

Content wise this omnibus has one less volume comprised in it than omnibus one. To compensate Yen Press has added several extras. The thing I like the most is a bunch of extra illustrations by Shouji Sato that cover not only Highschool of the Dead but also his other work Triage X. A variety of very early illustrations not covering a specific series are also included. There is an interview with the author as well stating the plan for the continuation of this series (which had been on hiatus for almost 2 years).

Overall the quality of this book is consistent with the price you will be paying for it. It isn't cheaply made and is of excellent quality. I wish Yen Press would do this for other series as able, but I realize the challenges involved in doing that.

5.0 out of 5 stars As "definitive" as editions get, part 2. 8 Feb 2014
By para - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This omnibus collects the volumes 5-7 (chapters 18-29). of the manga Highschool of the Dead, with completely colored art. I'll talk a bit about the contents but will be focusing just as much on the format in this review. For detailed thoughts on each volume please see my individual reviews.

As I mentioned in my review of the first omnibus, Highschool of the Dead is contains a lot of things I don't normally care for in my reading habits. Gore, zombies, and absurd levels of ecchi fanservice are not usually my cup of tea, but It all comes together surprisingly well in this case and HotD is extremely good for what it is. The series picks up steam in these later volumes that are just as good, if not better, than the first four.

Volumes 5 and 6 take things in a different direction and find Takashi's group at a shopping center where a junior police officer and several civilians have holed up waiting for reinforcements. But new potential allies and a source of supplies brings just as many complications as advantages, and more tough choices await as reality intrudes on everyone's plans. There's a fair bit of character development in this set of chapters. Individual motivations and fears come to the surface, personality conflicts grow a bit, and jealousy starts to show it's teeth. The conflicts and difficult discussions arise naturally and have great impact on the characters. There's surprising twists, the whole story is framed and told exquisitely, and it all builds to an incredible, heart-wrenching moment.

Volume 7 continues the search to reunite with Takashi's and Rei's parents. The heavy focus is on the search and fighting hoards of "Them," but there is a fair amount of character development as well dealing with the fallout of last issue's events.

The biggest issue here is that things end in the middle of a story arc. It normally wouldn't be a big deal but this is the point where the series went on hiatus a couple of years ago. Since then only a single chapter has been released (in Japan), so there's a big question mark on how long it will be before we see the completion and translation of the next installment.

As always there is also copious amounts of suspense, action and fan service, and everything is illustrated wonderfully. As with the first omnibus the coloring is incredible and really adds to the already impressive underlying art.

Also like the first omnibus the production values for this edition are off the charts. The paper size is that of an "American graphic novel" rather than the smaller standard for manga and the paper and printing quality is top notch.

Since there is one less volume in this collection, in addition to an interview with the the author and and other promotional materials sprinkled throughout, a 120+ page artbook is included at the end. It predominately features illustrations (with notes) from HotD and the artist's other major work, Triage X. If you've read any HotD you know what to expect from these pin ups both in quality and subject matter. A sturdy hardcover with artwork and a dustjacket with art on both sides holds this 600+ page collection together. A very nice addition given the lack of availability of more chapters.

Highschool of the Dead is the very definition of "not for everyone," but it is a very well done guilty pleasure sort of read and these omnibuses are an incredible presentation of it. Fantastic job by Yen Press.
