This show is set in Japan, and the story starts just as world civilisation comes to an end ... crashing down on those left alive. As it happens, a group of teenage kids were at school, waiting for their next lesson to start. It never did ... everything ended. Now these kids must learn to trust each other, and get along. They have to escape the school and make their way home. Only they realise 'home' is gone. Now they've got to figure out where to head next, as the zombies try to eat them. Finally, these teenagers make their way to a beautiful tropical beach.
The story, although not exactly original, is well done - and there's plenty of action and excitement, involving guns, swords, lust and love. This show is based on a series of comic books (written by Daisuke Sat' and illustrated by Sh'ji Sat' - see [ HIGHSCHOOL OF THE DEAD OMNIBUS BY SATO, DAISUKE](AUTHOR)HARDBACK and [Highschool of the Dead Omnibus: v. 2] (By: Daisuke Sato) [published: December, 2013]) - and much about these comics literally leaps of the page and onto the screen. The animation is excellent, and the characterisation is good. It's amazing how much fun the zombie apocalypse looks! There's some fan service thrown into every episode ... plenty of bra and panty shots, as well as some boob and bum shots, of several very cute young ladies. But the nudity is not over the top.
This Blu-ray is a high-quality product. The entire show of 12 episodes is here, as well as a one-shot ('ova') concluding episode [although, sadly, that's a DVD]. Such a shame that a second season was never made ... I do recommend the hardback omnibus editions of the comic book series (in two volumes).
If you enjoy anime, zombies and titillation then you'll love this!
The only bothersome aspect of the release is that the beach OVA is only on DVD - if anything, all that swimsuit galore should be watched in FullHD.
The plot is very simple, a group of students team together to try and find safety when the world is hit by a killer virus that turns the dead into zombies, your typical zombie apocalypse concept. Granted it's a story that almost anybody with a pen, paper and half a brain, no pun intended, could come up with but i think that's one of the reasons it is so good.
The characters are all believable and do get a developed reasonably well despite the series not being very long. The voices are quite well in both the subbed and dubbed version, subbed is probably the better. The animation is brilliant, some of the best I've seen this year. The series also has a great opening theme which is always an added bonus
One thing that has been brought up by alot of people is the fanservice. Ok there is quite a bit but it's not as excessive as some make it seem, it is in reasonably good taste and I didn't find that it detracted from or spoiled the series in any way, shape or form. If your not looking for it you don't really notice it. At least it's not like Battle Vixens where no matter how feeble the attack is the front of the girls clothing always gets torn off and you're left wondering how much these girls must spend on clothing in a week. To be perfectly honest most of the fanservice is in episode six, there's a bath scene and quite a bit of nudity, if you can handle that you can handle the rest of the series.
My one critizism is the annoying, squeaky voice, completely useless, big boobed nurse whose only real purpose is to drive the various vehicles they use in their travels. Series probably would have survived without her.
If you love either zombie movies, anime or both i would recommend this series to anyone plus this is probably the best zombie movies/series for quite some while ,with the possible exception of The Walking Dead which is also brilliant, and I hope they do decided to make a second series.
