Highschool of the Dead Discussion (NOT FOR THE FEINT OF HEART)


16+ MATURE RATING! You shouldn't be watching if you look like this:

After joining Anime Network (http://www.theanimenetwork.com) I waited anxiously all day and night plus more (site issues,it was being swamped with viewers) for the premiere of "Highschool of the Dead"



Highschool of the Dead is one of my FAVORITE Mangas, if anyone knows anything about me, I have a severe bitter taste for horror films such as "Saw", "Friday the 13th", "Grudge", etc..
But Zombie flicks I have a sweet tooth for, I just love the idea of watching these people survive in such a horrifying environment, thinking to yourself "how would I have done it", plus its a great way to gamble with your friends on who dies and who doesn't.v

Highschool of the Dead is a simple formula: Zombies + Boobs x Anime - Rules = BEST ANIME EVAR!!!!

But enough about that lets get to the sexy details:

The anime itself already has an incredible soundtrack (I'm currently in love with the ED theme). While the Anime holds out on all the tasty flesh nom nom visuals, it does however create a great atmosphere, something you can't really get in a manga (You can read the "AHS" and the "OHS" and the "NOMS" but really who reads the background effects?). You see people being eaten, struggling, screaming. It gives a horrifying atmosphere, you think back to series like "Kimi no Todoke" or 'School Rumble" and imagine those simple lives being ultimately destroyed by this plague.

Of course we witness the first kill of a main character (I consider him to be since he plays something of a dynamic role in the first episode/act, like Hilda from Outlaw Star). I found it somewhat hilarious as to who Hiashi's voice actor was (Hiashi being the one who died). Who was he? Well heres a hint>

Without going too much into it, I was so happy, I had a set of a ribs ready to devour as the people where being nom nomed on. I'm not much of a chatter box or professional opinionated... of.... some kind... of person... that does things....

DISCUSS YOU CHILDREN!

Yes. Yes. YES! Looks like a winner to me. I'll definitely be watching this one as they come out. Thanks for the link Zero.

By the way, is it bad that I had a huge grin on my face pretty much through the whole first episode? Heck, I'm still grinning from the awesomeness I just saw.

Woah, I watched it. A little too NOT dramatic for me, though. With all that death an destruction, I would've been so mentality unstable by that time.
Amazing animation, graphics, and a good mystery to build on though. I give it many props. :)

Re: Highschool of the Dead Discussion (NOT FOR THE FEINT OF HEART) SPOILERS

I have read the translated manga to a certain point (trying to find the others) and i have yet to see the anime.
I did catch the trailer of it way back when it first was announced and i do like it still.
Other zombie/Undead/Monster/etc. mangas are good but this series was the one i was waiting for!
I do love the "Slow Zombies that are attracted to loud noises and no other special things." type of zombies, plus the one bite=dead rule. and that makes it a real survival horror manga. People die left and right and i was in love with it!

fun fact: Throughout the whole manga, i forgot that it had Ecchi moments as i thought the whole thing was like a "real life" scenario of a zombie outbreak manga.

UPDATE: Anime made this BETTER! Music is good like you said and besides the constant panty shots/boob jiggles, it is what i LIKE!

I also heard that there would be an English version but i don't know if it is true.

It was good, you can never go wrong with zombies. Although bouncing boobs is a plus

Okay, to start the animation is nice, Madhouse has always done a good job when it come to animation and staying focused on the plot. Sadly the only down side is that Madhouse is only making 13 eps or so I've heard/read. Now I can't really judge to much more since I've only seen EP 1 so far. (I haven't read the manga.) BUT I'm expecting great things since my friend highly recommended it to me so I'm hoping for a good plot and loyalty to the manga instead of just a bunch of people killing zombies with flashing and boobs every 5mins. Hopefully Mad house will do a good job since they did make Black Lagoon and all of it's awesomeness~

Re: Highschool of the Dead Discussion (NOT FOR THE FEINT OF HEART) SPOILERS

Is the story good or just the animation? And are we talking Hellsing-level violence or Shigurui-level violence? And what's the bouncing boobs to non-boobs ratio?

I really can't make a decision without all the details. :P

I was skeptical. But wow. That is just an awesome first episode to a series which can only get better. So much happened in that first episode that at the end you're just left with the thought, "wow". I vastly enjoyed it. I look forward to the second episode.

Watch the first 5 minutes, should give you a very good idea of what to expect.

Just watched episode 2. I freaking love this show

Episode 2, the assault begins! :D

I loved it soooo much, Hirano is my favorite episode, little disappointed that the ending changed (although I expected it).
Shido next Episode! >:(

So far what I have seen in the first two episodes are really good. The animation is good and the music fits it very well. Though I have to say one thing..... Too much fanservice (It reaches ikki tousen levels I think). Though I still really like this series and hope that it doesn't end out dissapointing me like Chaos:head did.

I LOVE THIS ANIME. I'm completely hooked on the opening theme so far and I'm struggling to not get too attached to any characters (since, they killed off one potential main by the first episode). The fan service also does not disappoint. Can't wait for more!
