Despite the low grade, this was a decent episode. A decent episode yes, but it was also the last episode of the series, and because of that, it had a much larger role to fulfill than simply being decent and interesting. High School of the Dead didn’t go for an anime original ending, but it didn’t end with a bang either. I found it rather interesting that Madhouse added that quote saying how the world didn’t end with a bang but a whimper. It so fits how the series ends as well.
