Probably one of the coolest anime I've seen so far yet disappointed at the same time, more on that later...
Highschool of The Dead aka H.O.T.D. is currently the most popular zombie type anime out there atm. And it just finished with 12 episodes and an OVA currently in the works. It is gorey, it has fanservice, and it has practically everything that a Left 4 Dead gamer would want in a zombie anime. Guns, girls, and zombies. (Hell even the girls like this, I got proof, and they're straight.)
The story starts out with basic student, Komuro, Takashi and his long time friend, Saya, Takagi. Komuro encounters her and they have a brief talk about the usual school stuff, he also meets up with friend, Miyamoto, Rei and her bf. They chat and eventually see some commotion at the front gate of the school. Someone who appears to look sick tried to enter, but the guards don't let him in. Then the sick person bites one of the guards through the gates, and blood gushes everywhere practically killing him. Within seconds, the bitten guard start acting just like the sick person outside the gate. that is when everyone start going into a state of panic and that's when Komuro, Rei, and her bf spring into action...
H.O.T.D. is one of those anime where you stumble upon only rarely. Not many zombie anime are out there. And sadly, this one ended so soon. So many people are hoping for a second season and due to the fact there is so much more after this chapter, plus it's still ongoing. With all of the non-stop suspense, fanservice, and twisted endings, you'd definitely want more. My only gripe about it was well...only how many episodes there were, which I pretty much was talking about the entire time, lol. I give it a 4.9 out of 5.
