(Blank) of the Dead is hardly an original monicker for a zombie flick (or animated series) and I was weary that this would be set entirely within a school campus, thus limiting the epic scope of a zombie apocalypse. Thankfully the story breaks out of the high school at about the third episode and goes enough places for it to be ultimately satisfying – sort of.
On day one of the zombie outbreak a single zombie appears at the gates of a private school and bites one of the teachers through the gate. Naturally (or un-naturally, rather) he becomes a zombie too and before you know it the entire school is infested. Amid the chaos four very large-bosomed girls and two boys band together, stay the night, escape through the city, escape from the city, and into the unknown world beyond. It's an epic story and there are plenty of beautiful babes with big, bouncing, beautiful boobs and panty shots if you are into that kind of thing.
The show is moderately paced with a few moments of excitement and good characterization. I'd like to see it continue but it's been four years so I think the fate of the characters is up in the air indefinitely.
The Blu-ray features a lovely 1.78:1 1080p picture with DTS HD-MA 5.1 sound. Extras are minimal. The cover proclaims that the OVA “Drifters of the Dead” is also included, but don't get your hopes up. Instead of the absolute ending I was hoping for this worthless addition barely reaches 12 minutes (minus credits and flashbacks) and does nothing. To top it off it's not even on a Blu-ray but a separate DVD. The cover art doesn't state this.
