And now you know to be skeptical whenever you see a HOTD thread.

As someone already said. That chapter came out in April of 2013. It's been 16 months and nothing has come of it. Do you have a link to give more information on the series coming off of hiatus, or is this pure conjecture?



http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-02-06/highschool-of-the-dead-manga-to-resume

notice it says " it does not SPECIFY a time frame" meaning it could resume this year or next year or later


Look man, it's not coming back any time in the foreseeable future. No news has come out on it that is relevant to now. Chapter 30 was more or less a one-shot to see whether or not the mangaka wanted to continue with the series and by the looks of things he did not. It happens, but Chapter 31 isn't coming any time soon until word of god says otherwise.

In other news, here's funny picture that's purely for giggles and a sorrowful reminder of our hopes from long since past:


Edit: If for some reason you find the above image offensive or inappropriate (no idea why anyone would by ehh just in case), no offense is meant by it as these forums have seen this topic come up plenty of times since last april so as said before it's purely for giggles :D

But seriously. This show/manga sucked, and the only reason people read/watch it is for boobs and gore.

Desperately want this back. I hope they return to it soon and I'm tired of waiting.

Hell, I'm willing to subscribe to a monthly or even buy the volumes in ebook format even! But only if the story is gonna be finished!

If I were to guess, the Sato bros were screwing around in the studio one afternoon and happened to spill some coffee or something on some unpublished drafts.

"Eh, yo, Shoji, wasn't this stuff supposed to have been published, like, a year ago?"

"What'chu talkin' 'bout, Daisuke?"

"This HOTD stuff. Chapter 30, looks like."

"We never finished that? You sure? Naw man, we wrapped that up ages ago."

"Eh, guess you're right. Whatcha wanna do now?"

"Draw more fanservice, durr."

I'd love to see it come back, because I was once really invested in all the characters, but realistically speaking, I think that at this point the HOTD ship has sailed. The longer they wait, the less interest there is going to be when it finally starts getting published again. I heard neither the manga nor the DVDs sold all that well in Japan, so that might be one of the reasons why the franchise has fallen off.

So this is another manga/anime that did better here than it did in Japan?

I seem to remember the manga selling decently at the book stores and comic shops I saw them at when they were coming out.

Triage X is done by the artist,Shouji, of HOTD. While the author of HOTD,Daisuke, who isn't working on Triage X. Shouji has made an annoucement that the reason why he started making Triage X was because of the long hitaus HOTD was in. There has been no official annoucement from the author of HOTD.

But most likely the author mightive just dropped the manga, which happens alot especially those manga that gets an anime adaptation. If you look at the dates of the anime and manga release you can see the hitaus is right after the anime is finished. This is why I always get annoyed that an manga thats not over or completed gets an anime adaptation, because you are guranteed 90% chance that there won't be future updates or only once a year or half a year for an update.

Most likely when Triage X is complete and the writer of HighSchool of the Dead is healthy, also when no disasters in Japan happen, the series will be picked up. Daisuke stated that his health and natural disasters that happen is why he stops working on HighSchool of the Dead. There was an interview about to continuation of the series in the Full Color Edition. Also the Full Color Edition was another reason the series didn't continue. This series may end up like HunterxHunter will the pointless hiatuses or be like D.Gray-Man and end all together if it already hasn't. We still got One Piece, Case Closed, Bleach, Fairy Tail, and many other popular manga to look forward to so let HOTD take its time.
