Title: High school of the Dead
Description: A series that will blow you away
Sayo's Guardian - July 7, 2008 09:27 PM (GMT)
This series is like the horror movie "Dawn of the dead" but a harem.
A mysterious, lethal disease is on the loose worldwide, resulting in a catastrophic death rate of humanity, and the increasing rise of attacks, caused by the living dead.
In Japan, several high school students and a school nurse have banded together to escape Fujimi Private High School shortly after it was attacked by "them." The group now attempts to figure who or what was responsible for this plague, and in the meantime, attempt to survive the present apocalypse.
This series has life and death situations, ecchi, comedy, action.
There is no anime for it, only a manga with each chapter being released by Dragon magazine once a month.
So far 20 chapters have been released and scanalated.
The art and story are both WELL ABOVE AVERAGE. A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED series.
All characters you will either really love and Really hate. Whether the character is male or female.
Please read the first chapter at least at onemanga and lets talk about it.

ledah - July 29, 2008 04:01 AM (GMT)
well if we dont have a tread about that series .... is ok ?
AsunaNegi - July 29, 2008 05:50 AM (GMT)
Alright, I'll bite. I've been meaning to read this for ages, and finally got around to it. I've on volume 3, iirc, and this is awesome. Sucks for the guy carrying the loli, though. Pee is not a fun thing to have in your clothing.
Sayo's Guardian - July 29, 2008 12:06 PM (GMT)
Sharoran it annoys me that this thread was left unposted for almost a month now, I waited long enough.
Asunanegi, dont you think this series would be considered high class in almost every way.
Art, story, characters almost everything about is amazing. Heck the entire world is changing and so are the people. This is really incredible, Heck it is the end of the world.
LOL, I loved that scene when he had to walk on top of the wall while carrying the girl on his back.
My faveorite female and male characters would have to be the samurai girl and the guy with glasses whos great with guns.
The latest chapter is 20. I wont give any spoilers till someone gets upto there.
Ledah, this has been bothering me for a while but is your name from the character from Riviera?
shaoron - July 29, 2008 12:20 PM (GMT)
it's still a "
jop mod bait"...

AsunaNegi - July 29, 2008 03:43 PM (GMT)
Alright, I'm not posting in this thread anymore. That's a bullcrap modbait reason, and your inability to type correctly (PROTIP: Question Marks exist for a reason) has annoyed me. Besides, you're not even keeping your own thread on-topic.
I don't need to post here to enjoy this series.
Also, Hirano is kickass. *&#@ yeah Gun Otaku.
Sayo's Guardian - July 29, 2008 07:52 PM (GMT)
I love him too. He`s so cool. You may as well stay. I wonder if that policewoman will follow him?
Whats a modbait?
I hate Shidou!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ledah - July 29, 2008 09:54 PM (GMT)
ah theres a swordman girl too right , she is hot also
Sayo's Guardian - July 30, 2008 12:35 AM (GMT)
Yes she is, Theres a chapter at the end of Vol.4 dedicated to her. She opens up the true side of her face.
Ths chapter brings out the series charm in my opinion.
ledah - July 30, 2008 02:18 AM (GMT)
oh yeah she great , but till the moment no chapters right ?
Sayo's Guardian - July 30, 2008 03:51 AM (GMT)
I think the latest chapter translated is either 20 or 21.
Hers the VERY BAD NEWS.
Yhe magazine that releases the chapters is dragon age and they are released monthly.
So 1 chapter a month.
millionknives - July 30, 2008 04:33 PM (GMT)
well just finished reading it
I have to say that I'm surprised it actually real good
It's like reading dawn of the dead in manga form :P
Sayo's Guardian - July 30, 2008 04:54 PM (GMT)
Sure is. Honestly its been a long time since I`ve seen such a superb series.
I wonder how it would be like if it were to get animated.
I can picture Gonzo doing the animation.
jopchan121 - July 30, 2008 07:26 PM (GMT)
3 weeks means......SAFE.
No Mod action is required.
Sayo's Guardian - July 30, 2008 08:58 PM (GMT)
Were you considering in deleting this thread? Thats mean.
jopchan121 - July 30, 2008 09:18 PM (GMT)
Did I say anything about that?
I was talking to Shao, not you.
Now this thread is gonna be watched.>_>.
Sayo's Guardian - July 30, 2008 10:14 PM (GMT)
I`m sorry I jumped to a conclusion.
What do you mean by mod-action and the thread being watched. If you don`t mind me asking.
jopchan121 - July 30, 2008 10:22 PM (GMT)
They wanted me to lock it. That is one Mod Action I can do. I said no need.
The thread being watch means: The thread is being watched. By Me.
Sayo's Guardian - July 30, 2008 10:45 PM (GMT)
I see. I apologize for sounding rude earlier.
By the way have you read any chapters of the series yet Jopchan?
Keitaro - September 7, 2008 01:37 AM (GMT)
Just finished reading up to the latest chapter and I really like it.
I like the girl using swords. (I forgot her name ^_^)
She is also HOT :wub:
Sayo's Guardian - September 7, 2008 06:43 AM (GMT)
All the characters are amazing.
Still imagine an anime adaption of this series.
That would be wicked!
SagittaMagica - September 7, 2008 08:33 AM (GMT)
Yeah... This is awesome...
though it took me some time to read it... too busy and all... >_>
Sayo's Guardian - September 7, 2008 02:10 PM (GMT)
Thats a good thing.
Each chapter is released once a month by dragon.
And each chapter is roughly 40 pages long which is nice.
Honestly though an anime adaption would really be incredible!
Keitaro - December 27, 2008 02:12 AM (GMT)
Chapters 21 - 22 is now released ^_^
The other policewomen who asked for help was already turned to an undead <_<
Sayo's Guardian - December 27, 2008 12:23 PM (GMT)
I missed this series, I hope they hurry with vol.6
See Perversion saves the day.
Hooray for Perversion!
SagittaMagica - December 22, 2009 08:24 AM (GMT)
OK, I cant take this!
Its been a freakin' year and there is still none of our zombies and chicks_with_F_cup+_tits manga! Which is currently on HIATUS!
The most I can dig for news is that the Author is off writing some H-doujins, the Artist is doing a different manga. Though there were "supposedly" rumors that the series will resume on January of 2k'10, but unless we live on the world of Persona 2 all we can do is extend our patience some moar.
I'll be honest, when I posted waay~ back about reading this, I actually only read the first chapter, initially I didn't like it 'cause I found it to be too cliche'd in plot with so many things ripped from Movies and games (28 weeks/days later, Dawn of the dead etc.) though sadly the girls in those aren't as HAWT looking as what HSotD has.
2 Days ago, I was rummaging my DVD back ups for some family photos, and I incidentally found the HSotD CH_1 file from there. I didn't have much to do, so I read it, 2 hours later I was gripping the edge of my sit, gnawing on my nails crying WTF WAS THAT EPIC THING I JUST READ?!
Fan-service aside, the psychological aspect of the series (like Takashi's and Saeko's mental states about the pandemic) was really well highlighted and explained, Sayo.. hmm I dunno why but I get reminded of Hasegawa Chisame, Shizuka... :wub:
The girls of this series have breasts on the F to H scale, for the series to incorporate them with a genre like this... The author and artist are real genius!
Which makes me return to the matter at hand, why the Hiatus?
HSotD actually is faring well in Japan(once it ranked 7th on weekly rankings) I see no reason for this to actually be halted. Though of course "on Hiatus" sounds more comforting than "discontinued/cancelled" but the fans deserve more than this, and they want this NAO!
Now, Ill shut up and once again wait for this series' restart.. anyone else still reading this? or have you guys already turned to zombies? :P
Kota - December 22, 2009 03:31 PM (GMT)
Stuck waiting, my friend. I've only heard rumors of a reboot, but I honestly expect no more of this series.
Keitaro - December 23, 2009 01:59 AM (GMT)
I've also been waiting for a VERY LONG TIME!
Well I can still wait cause there is a lot of other manga that's keeping me busy <_<
Kota - January 8, 2010 04:53 PM (GMT)
Big announcement next issue. Probably a revival, and possibly an OVA.
Also, why the *&#@ is an action/scifi/horror manga in the Bishoujo section?
SagittaMagica - January 8, 2010 09:34 PM (GMT)
Oh shet!? FINALLY!
Oh and to answer your question Kota... Because its a harem :D
Kota - January 9, 2010 04:58 AM (GMT)
So I'm the only one reading for the gun porn, the survivalist plot, and the zombies?
SagittaMagica - January 9, 2010 05:11 AM (GMT)
You aren't alone in that dude...
How about character psychological state, political inclinations and the scientific riff-raff?
I dig those in the series too!
Sayo's Guardian - January 10, 2010 01:04 AM (GMT)
Finally in been what 2 years(at least 1 year) since the hiatus.
Also new age. that`ll be interesting.
HSOTD used to run in dragon age and it was known to have good manga such as full metal panic and chrono crusade.
Why do you say that?
Kota - January 10, 2010 04:38 AM (GMT)
That's what some rumors are saying.
Sayo's Guardian - February 2, 2010 07:30 PM (GMT)
An Anime adaption has been announced and after a break of over a year, the manga will continue.
This is so EXCITING!!!
SagittaMagica - February 2, 2010 08:11 PM (GMT)
*SagittaMagica picks up a FAMAS holographic
Lock and Load! gimme moar of my zombies and F-Cup boobs manga!
Sayo's Guardian - February 2, 2010 09:24 PM (GMT)
I miss this so much.sob.
Before I forget heres the proof:http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2010-...anime-green-lit
