If you look at the cover of the first volume of the manga, you'll notice it is "Highschool" with no space. Like it or not, that is the title. Given that the Japanese term for high school is "kōtōgakkō", it is somewhat understandable why they would not separate it into two words.

Back to the acronym, try searching for HSOTD on Google, and it will ask you if you meant HOTD instead and present the results for that.

You can try swimming against the current if you want, but expect a lot of resistance.


Understood. Even so, I refuse to perpetuate their lame joke for them. And I'll support anyone who chooses to correct the title and use a proper abbreviation.

Yeah, sorry about the typo... This might make me sound like a retard, but what is the double meaning exactly?

Well, if you start with the "official" abbreviation, HOTD, you can proceed from there to "hot D". I'll let you draw your own conclusions from there.

Belive me a 13- 16 yr old wont be drooling as it is playing.


It`s weird, becaus you can see naked boobs on prime tv over there, but a panty shot in a fictional world is really no no :P

Oh and, what does OP think of the latest ep then?
There was alot of fanservice in that one XD

OP thinks...That was a very strange fight indeed. Hey, I love me some lucy (Or, more specifically Erza), but it was kind of silly. I guess I'm just the "Serious Fights" kind of guy. AKA an action dweeb. I hope there'll be some serious fighting soon.

On a side note: Woooooooow. Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works...I wonder how much it cost to animate some of these fights? Sky high, I'm betting. Yeesh!

The creators of that probably have alot of cash, seeing as they joke about it in the preview scene on ep 2 of Carnival Phantasm

Arr! I wish I could view it, but I can't. I have a hard cap of 200 MB/day for my internet, so I sadly can't. Maybe if I can get into town sometime...

I'll look up this Carnival Phantasm though, thanks!

I thought it was a pun on "House Of The Dead" or "House Of The Damned".

That's a possibility. But when you consider that one of the big draws for this anime is supposed to be its overly endowed women, I'm pretty sure that they meant it the other way.
