High School of the Dead is a fantastic anime that shouldn’t be missed by anyone who considers themselves a fan of the horror genre. Packed with tons of action and some harem themes, this is one anime that can satisfy most of your cravings.
The anime, which drops you right into the action from the word ‘go’, focuses on both the depravity as well as the hope that come with a zombie apocalypse. Unlikely friendships are formed, unthinkable heroes are born, and unexpected losses hit hard in this thrilling anime.
Though there are many intriguing characters in High School of the Dead, a fan favorite is Kohta Hirano. He is perhaps the most realistic character portrayed in that you honestly can’t judge a book by its cover. He shows that just because he’s nerdy, doesn’t mean he isn’t capable.
This is one high school anime that left fans with bated breath, highly anticipating its second season. While we’re still left waiting, an OVA episode, “Drifters of the Dead” was released in 2011.
Though there is a second season to be had, rumors run rampant about the actual release date for this zombie anime. For now, we just have to be content with a great, solid series and fan speculation.
