Highschool of the Dead, Vol. 1 (Highschool of the Dead #1)
A mysterious illness is spreading rapidly through the halls of Fujimi High School. In a matter of hours, the campus is transformed from a place of learning into a hive of nightmares, as the infected students collapse and are reborn as flesh-hungry zombies! Only a handful of students escape the initial outbreak - among them Takashi Komuro and his childhood friend, Rei. He m...more
But this is obviously for the male audience because there is WAY too many ecchi in it. Oh yeah...more
I love this series, despite disliking it originally for the reasons I'm about to say, but it has a couple of flaws but in no comparison to how amazing it is. I'm also going to admit -after reading the manga and watching the anime series- the anime has had a major influence over my opinion on this entire creation although the books (I own all) are terrific in their own right.
The highlights in my opinion were that there were plenty of zombies (so if you came to the series for that then you won't be disappointed) as well as gore and hyper-kinectic fights (as well as an astonishing level of attention to detail when it comes to technical details of things such as firearms and economics). There are also quite a few interest...more
I was really interested when I first heard of Highschool of the Dead. I mean the concept isn't ver...more
I loved the story. I am all for the violence and ecchi. Sometimes it is nice to read something straight forward and full of action. I definitely don't regret spending money on the books. Even as a straight girl, I am not bothered by all of the overly large breasts and panty shots. It is all just a fun read for me.
I love the story line and all of the characters. I am able to read it multiple time...more
This isn't for those who dislike fanservice. I don't personally mind it and think that it's called for in this instance. Boobs, boobs, and more boobs.
If you enjoy American zombie movies,...more
In this volume, we meet a group of high school kids who have banded together to brave this hell of a world they are forced to live in.
If you're left craving more, be sure to check out the anime. It's just as (maybe even more so) delicious as the manga!
Note: I own the Full Color Omnibus 1-4, so I...more
Don't even get me started on the boobs in this manga. They bounce all over the place in this one panel. Seriously wear a bra or get a better one. It isn't that hard. Don't even get me started on the nurse. She has huge boobs. It's kin...more
Awesome fight scenes...check
Awesome story line..check
Honestly I found this on a whim at the bookstore under the mature section, and snatched it up. Sadly I should've bought the 2nd one while I was at it.
But hell this manga was so much fun to read, the artwork was beautiful to look at, and none of the characters annoyed me. So I'm satisfied and perfectly content with this series. I kind of got sick of the ever lasting...more
Zombie apocalypses are one of my favorite things to read or watch (That's why I love Zombieland so much, well, that and Jessie Eisenberg) and Highschool of the Dead really set the bar with that. I'm a big horror reader. So anything that's gory or disturbing I'm up for the read. This manga was a sure fire hit on gore.
The only thing that was difficult to get past in this manga was the Echi, or the perverted messes that that that happens e...more
Don't get me wrong, it's an amazing manga. I've given most of the mangas I've read high ratings, because I only spend my time on the ones that come highly recommended. Most manga series are very long, and with this OCD compu...more
I like the concept, the whole zombie apocalypse theme can be really overdone, but this is the first series I've found that focuses on highschool students. I like that about this manga. Being a teen is hard enough but have pretty much all of the adults wiped out and you're left in charge for maybe the first time in your life. Very action packed and the story kept me interested, HOWEVER, I only give the series 3.5-4 star...more
However, Highschool of the Dead is obviously geared towards guys since the major...more
