Anime: High School of the Dead (学園黙示録)

High School of the Dead (学園黙示録, Gakuen Mokushiroku, lit. School Apocalypse) is set in 2010 Japan, beginning as the world is struck by a deadly pandemic that turns humans into zombies, euphemistically referred to by the main characters as “Them” (奴ら, yatsura).

The story follows a group of high school students, the school’s nurse, and a young girl as they fight their way to safety through the deadly streets of Japan during the worldwide catastrophic event known as the “Outbreak”.

As the cast tries to survive the zombie apocalypse, they must also face the additional threats of societal collapse, in the form of dangerous fellow survivors, and the possible decay of their own moral codes.

It is a theme quite used on television series, movies, and many other formats, but it’s still quite enjoyable, specially the OVA, which is surprisingly hilarious! The animation quality is also quite good, so it’s worth watching! Trailer below!
