Ok so this has been bugging me for quite some time now and I don't believe anyone has posted upon this yet. What ever happened to the promised second season of High School Of The Dead? I supposedly heard it was supposed to be released in Japan at around September 15, 2011 but it's now Near the end of January of 2012 and no second season.....

Now the season was great and is one of my all time favorites (of course I've read the manga) and many people have been expecting a season two of the series because it left at a cliffhanger where they end up near a mall/market to find one of the girls father (who's a police officer)

Would anyone know or happens to know when it's airing?

There's been no mention that they are working on a second season yet. You'll probably have to wait a while.

I don't know where you heard that "September 15, 2011" date, but I doubt it was from a reliable source. (For one thing, a series like HOTD would premiere in October, not mid-September). Also, there has been no official announcement of a second series being green-lit.

The biggest problem at this point is that the manga has been progressing too slowly. At this point, if a new series was made, it would either have to be mostly filler, or have an original ending which would throw a monkey wrench into the possibility of any future series.

The only reason that I was stating that mid September was the release date is due to the forums and Internet websites that stated when it would be released. True about the Manga releases though... I believe the last chapter I read was... #25 or so, so I would agree that if a new series was to be announced the manga would need to be at a considerable amount of chapters to explain the story... Now I must go to the studio where they create the manga and slap some seance upon them to continue with the manga....

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing a few days ago, but I haven't seen/heard/read anything related to this. I heard from a friend that there are only still 2 vols, and if thats the case, then maybe there will be a second season. Though there is no guarantee. Maybe they just need some support from fans? Sometimes things like these happen and the creators and what not, dont do anything much about the issue unless they hear from their fans, problem is, that were not in Japan to let them know. All we can do is show support by buying the merch online, at cons or at stores (rarely).

Well, an OVA of the series was released last April and imo, it dropped the ball..

I wouldn't mind a season 2 although the plot could be enforced a bit more better. I haven't even read the manga yet lol thou so I'm not sure if they have enough plot to continue another season.

Well I did see the OVA some time ago, I believe that it was when all of them thought they were stranded on an island and somehow got high xD

Well to new the manga chapters tend to cut off at times where the next chapter would complete the previous chapter IMO.... So yes needs more chapters for second season.
