Impressions on highschool of the dead.
Posted 7/4/10 , edited 7/4/10
I have to say that I am fairly impressed so far of what I was able to make out the official Japanese streaming site. It really follows the manga story pretty close and is loaded with gore, fan-service and yes some romance as well. This has to be one the best series that I have seen in years and I can not wait for the subs of this series to show up.
Here is a bit of an overview of the series.
"The world is over taken with a very deadly disease that turns humans into zombies. In Japan, several students of Fujimi High School, and the school nurse, band together to survive the present apocalypse. The story follows Takashi Komuro, one of the students who survived in the initial outbreak."
Here are some screen shoots that I was able to grab:

Subs are already out.

When looking at this anime before the season, I thought "Looks meh, but manga has decent ratings so there must be something special about it."

My first impression was right. Nothing special at all so far, but at least it was entertaining.

I'm really pleased that Japan's anime is taking a different turn from the old generic repeats of the same old plot and content. Its more than likely to take the spotlight for this season's anime chart, but unfortunately, I'm bad with horror and zombies of the like (my stomach just can't handle it), so I'll probably steer clear of it. I will, however, will look forward to what other types of anime Japan will release (STEAMPUNK, PLEASE).

Oh my god. I watched episode 1 just now...I couldnt wait. My fucking god. This anime is just.....so sad....my god....its like what would really happen if the zombie outbreak happened in real life. My god I think this anime will wreck me emotionally. This anime definitely has superb promise for the future.

Apparently there is going to be an uncensored version that actually shows the gruesome death, gore, and decapitation that takes place in the show. I'm puzzled why they mixed fanservice in, though, but still amused by how each character reacts to the event.

BFF'S FOREVER! YEAH! ILL NEVER ABANDON YO--oh,wait, did you just get grabbed by a zombie? Let go of my hand, DIAF, bitch.

The first episode is pretty good, I liked the eerie, thrilling, yet doomed apocalypse atmosphere. The drama and romance too, were nicely done. Animation was nice. Fighting scenes were ok but this is sure to get better in the later action-packed episodes.

I remember reading the manga and getting increasingly and finally unbearably annoyed at the excessive and sometimes disgusting fanservice. (I could and I did ignore all that boobs bouncing around and the too-frequent panty shots and go on enjoying the zombie-slashing action. But later on in the manga, the fanservice got so overboard it was absolutely stupid.) The anime seems to follow the manga very closely but I hope the fanservice will be toned down a little. That's probably not gonna happen though, from the looks of the OP.
