High School of the Dead Series
It's an ordinary school day for Rei and Takashi... or so it seems. Suddenly a strange man stumbles in the
school yard and bites one of the employees. From then on, chaos ensues: the bitten die and transform into flesh-eating
zombies who stop at nothing to get their food. Rei and Takashi are caught in a fight for survival, forced to kill their
own infected friends and classmates (whom Takashi dubs "them").
After some time, the two decide to escape the school and head for their homes to check up on their families. Along the way, they meet other survivors and group together, doing their best to protect themselves against the increasing hordes. However, they also meet rivals, and must rely on mutual trust and play by the new rules at all times in order to make it out alive.

Hands down, all Higshchool of The Dead boils down to is entertainment. No brains needed (this is a zombie flick guys really--no brains needed. Get it? GET IT?!....shut up). The story line is un-creative and predictable at best, and the characters really aren't anything other than your one dimensional anime archetypes. Still, it's not as though the show tries to hide this fact and it still is a really fun anime to watch during its high points. HOTD is above average, but not great, not masterpiece material and definitely NOT something you watch with your girlfriend or your parents in the room.
In terms of immersibility I really do think HOTD has its hit and miss moments.
This anime is so awesome and cool. The first episode is really awesome that makes you want to watch the second and the next episodes. It is really an awesome series full of excitement. The characters are cool. The background is awesome and the animation is also good. Although I am still not satisfied with the ending, it is still worth watching. Hopes there is second season...pikachu36 rated 10.00:
High School Of the Dead or HOTD was good for me right of the start. Mind you this is a special project the company created. Yes there is a lot of fan service which distracts a lot of people from checking it out which is a shame. Yes I did enjoy the fan service though mainly because I am a guy lol, but over all it was quite an experience. The creators did an awesome job and shows you all the cool things you can do with animations when you decide to say ah what the hell and go ham on the project. Honestly If I knew this show was as good I would have loved to have watched it sooner then I did. This show is now my in my top 3 of all time! Deff recommend and deff think it deserves a 10 out 10.mikeb23 rated 8.00:
Very solid anime. Has a very basic plot though...zombie infection, kids ban together, love relationships form, survival and yeah. I liked it and there was ALOT of fan service (almost enough to be a hentai...jk). But the group is a very well thought out one. My favorite was Saeko. Mmmmmmmmmm... has long hair, nice curves, kicks SO MUCH ass and she loves doing it. Did i mention she uses swords? Yeah...double hot ;)HatedAngel rated 5.00:
If eechi and zombies are your type of thing HOTD is for you. For me I have mixed feelings about it. As somebody who doesn't mind zombies but can't stand an overload of eechi I have mixed feelings on this. The characters have good development as far as I'm concerned, and the plot and animation is well done. However it's hard to take it seriously sometimes when they toss a bunch of bouncing boobs and random panty shots. Also I'm not a fan of seeing that either so that downgraded quite a lot for me. If you're into that well dive in and go ahead you'll enjoy it.xChibiSakura rated 4.50:
Ok, so when you are told this is a story about zombies, you expect to see zombies, right? And sure enough, there are zombies but the anime focuses a lot more in the fanservice than anything else, which IMO is very annoying. Also the story it's not that good to be redeemed from having more close-ups of the girls boobs than a zombie apocalypse. It's not that bad an anime but to be honest there are a lot of better stories out there than this.
