High School of the Dead may be scandalous with the amount of fan-service throughout, but the gory story about high school students trying to survive a zombie apocalypse in Tokyo is worth a watch.
My high school was just like that, but with smaller boobs.
When will we start seeing new episodes of this awesome show?
No further episodes have been discussed as of now. That doesn't exactly mean there won't be any but with a show like this if a second season doesn't happen rather quickly it tends to not ever happen.
Okay, those breasts have a better independent suspension system than my car.
Seriously....This series is stupid. The only reason people love it is because of the boobs. Those people happen to all be pubescent boys with raging hormones.
Though I agree with you I haven't read the manga in a while, so... maybe it got better? Anyways since the mangaka does H-related stuff too maybe that's why High School of the Dead is popular lol
Last I remember from the manga is I think the entire earth was about to be nuked to wipe out the zombies...or something. I used to enjoy all of it, till I realized that without the boobs everything kinda sucks...But yeah, without the fan service, this wouldn't be half as popular.
Without the boobs it's just your typical zombie survival "George A Romero" movie. I wouldn't say its stupid or sucks. Just you know....average. The fanservice is the only thing that sets it apart really.
I actually think it would have been way better without all of the boobs. They would focus on plot and stuff.
You must not have seen the recent 'of the dead' movies. Focusing on the plot isn't always a guarantee to something better.....
I started watching this thinking it was legit but sadly no.
It's just a boob show. Nothing more. Moving along. Ecchi with weak plot is shit. Nice animation though.
I liked the first few episodes, but then I think they changed the title to Highboobs of the Boobs.
I enjoyed parts of the show but really it didn't live up to the potential it had. There are flashes of greatness but they ultimately never pan out. At times the show tries to have a deeper meaning a bit of social commentary such as the teachers being so quick to Abandon or use the kids(with the exception of the nurse her names escapes me atm) And the episode in which the gang member attacks Rei and Takashi needs to take some drastic measures to save her. Many of the best zombie films have used similar themes to get the point across that even when the world seems to be ending zombies are not always the biggest thing that needs to be worried about. But towards the end those little bits start to fall away and it gets more and more over the top and fails to go any deeper into the themes that would have made the show worthwhile.
On Netflix Instant. Pretty good show I must say.
Where is higurashi!?
I won this from ANN a few weeks back and must admit, the over-top-top-ness is what made it so funny. Sometimes you need pointless humor/T&A to break the ice. Personally, I was very happy to see a lot of blood and gore throughout the season. And really, who doesn't like a bit of sexual tension ;)
