Jadi ceritanya Takashi Komuro bersama teman-temannya sudah berhasil meninggalkan rumah Saya Takagi, lalu malah “nyangkut” di sebuah pusat perbelanjaan bersama orang-orang awam lainnya. Mirip di cerita-cerita film horror bertemakan zombie lainnya, ada pasangan lanjut usia yang sedang dalam kondisi kritis sehingga mendorong Takashi dan teman-teman mencoba mencarikan obat-obatan yang dibutuhkan untuk menyelamatkan pasangan lansia tersebut. Saat mereka sudah hampir berhasil, tiba-tiba muncullah kawa ...more

Highschool of the Dead volume 5 contains chapters 18-22 and is a direct continuation of previous volumes. It's best to start at the beginning.

Takashi's group has made their way to a shopping center where a junior police officer and several civilians have holed up waiting for reinforcements. But new potential allies and a source of supplies brings just as many complications as advantages, and more tough choices await as reality intrudes on everyone's plans.

There's a fair bit of character develo

The fifth book finds Our Intrepid Heroes holed up in a shopping mall after the failed American nuclear strike of the previous volume knocked out all the electronics in the Tokyo area. Go USA!

Now, days later, her authority is breaking down as the civies realized how screwed they are. Will the ...more

Highschool of the Dead is where you get your zombie action. Fast and furious and intense. Nothing in this manga is for the faint of heart. I recommend this manga for those over the age of 16 for more of the sexual aspects registered within this series.

For those of you that are shonen fans, this manga is definitely for you. The amount of ammunition that these teenagers are packing is seriously something that you should all take a look at

While it's really a book about "Fan Service" I love the plot. The characters are great and the art is top notch. If you can get over the triple E boobs in every shot, it really is a great story.
This one I only put at 3 stars because I felt it was too wrapped up on one side plot too long.

Woo! Love Busujima. She is absolutely awesome and I can't wait to learn more of her past! The tension builds and I can't help but feel for the characters and care about each one of them!

The Cosplay bonus episode at the end made the book. Otherwise, pretty standard HOTD fare. Glad to finally be beyond where the anime ended though.

Almost at the end/up-to-date with this manga. Too bad it ended/got put on hiatus/whatever other reason.
