I have watched numerous movies on undead apocalypse but on anime, there’s none as good, other than ‘Highschool of the Dead’, thanks to Shoji Sato, the creator.
Like most zombie shows, it all began without reason and warning. This crazy catastrophic broke out banded an unusual group of high schoolers using whatever stuffs they could find in the premises from wooden swords, baseball bats, sticks to staple guns, just to survive. Slashing zombies killing action, stunning horror animation and jaw dropping ecchi scenes from this manga derived anime.
The disappointment would be that this short 24 episodes anime, is just a beginning chapter of the manga. I managed to get my hands on this anime in code 1 DVD by ‘Sentai Filmworks’. Comes in 2 discs, each contain 12 episodes, disc A with cover of Saeko Busujima and disc B with cover of Rei Miyamoto. Audio in English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 (English subtitles). Not too impressive special features include like cleaning opening and closing songs and trailers.
