Review: For the students of Fujimi High School it all started with a weird looking man standing at the front gate on a sunny spring day. Only moments later he mercilessly murdered and infected most of the students with his zombie virus of unknown origin. The few, who stick together to survive, soon realize that this is a problem of global proportions.
At first glance High School of the Dead is an action based zombie anime with much fanservice and little story. On a second glance however, the breathtaking animation quality, astonishing music and character developments make this anime into something worth recommending. It’s questionable however, if that can compensate for the overuse of fanservice and some rather weird, crappy and unrealistic scenes where you have to wonder whether or not this is unintentional humor. All in all it is done decently well.
