It happened suddenly: The dead began to rise and Japan was thrown into total chaos. As these monsters begin terrorizing a high school, Takashi Kimuro is forced to kill his best friend when he gets bitten and joins the ranks of the walking dead. Vowing to protect Rei Miyamoto, the girlfriend of the man he just executed, they narrowly escape their death trap of a school, only to be greeted with a society that has already fallen.
Soon, Takashi and Rei band together with other students on a journey to find their family members and uncover what caused this overwhelming pandemic. Joining them is Saeko Busujima, the beautiful president of the Kendo Club; Kouta Hirano, an otaku with a fetish for firearms; Saya Takagi, the daughter of an influential politician; and Shizuka Marikawa, their hot school nurse. But will the combined strength of these individuals be enough to conquer this undead apocalypse?

Story – 6
Whilst a ‘subtle’ plot does play in the background of a world on the brink of a zombie outbreak, one must understand that it will never be its main focus as we’re lead by a group of high school kids and their ditsy school nurse. This series is about survival in its most basic whilst the ‘subtle’ plot unfolds. HotD sticks your clichéd anime archetypes into a world infested with zombies.
Art – 8
The art in HotD is crisp. From the well drawn scenery of a sunset backdrop that provides you that feeling of an impending doom, to the hack-and-slash execution of each action scene(which the zombie-lovers anticipate), one has to appreciate that HotD maybe a cut above the rest in terms of animation for the season.
Sound – 8
Sound is great with Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets “HotD” opening and the BGM sets the tone for every interaction within each episode, using rock as a theme. What’s made me appreciate it even more is the director’s choice of using Maon Kurosaki vocalize different lyrics for each episode which suits each ending very well.
Characters – 5
Unfortunately what sets my rating back as a whole is the casting for HotD as they are mediocre at best. Due to the pacing of the show, any form of development that they try to achieve are ruined and only comes off as cheesy, making you realize that this really is just a zombie-and-ecchi show. One stage it may look like your average romance but by next episode it builds to a triangle and then a harem! I believe they should just stick to what they were already doing best: the zombie killing and ecchi!
Enjoyment – 8
Well I won’t lie to you, I have enjoyed the wild and bumpy ride that is High School of the Dead. I can only hope that we are given a second season so that the adaptation can provide more plot.
