High School of the Dead Scores Anime (of the Dead)

Epic win!

LOTS of good news for fans of the zombie manga High School of the Dead, which is exactly what it sounds like-- a survival horror about a group of high school students (and a school nurse) who unite forces to survive the zombie apocalypse. Not only is the manga off of its hiatus, word is that an anime adaptation is in the works!

    
The original manga follows 17-year-old Takashi Komuro, a young man who is determined to protect his childhood sweetheart, Rei, even if he can't actually spit out his feelings about her.

Joining these two are kendo club pres Saeko, the deductive genius Saya, school nurse Shizuka Marikawa, and Kouta Hirano. No, not the Hellsing creator, although since the character is a gun otaku I can't help but wonder if he's named after him...

Anyway. Sounds like epic good times! Can't wait!

FUCK YES! I've been reading this in Spanish thanks to the manga license getting picked up in Spain and now that its off hiatus and getting an anime, I can finally push this to everyone I know.  Needs an appropriate metal soundtrack too for maximum effect.

The instant I saw that image I couldn't help but think the girl on the left looks almost identical to Mitsurugi Meiya...

I read some of this manga online. It wasn't too bad. I never got around to finishing it though. Some of the eariler events in that series was seriously messed up.
 
That one guy's bus cult always reminded me a bit of Jim Jones and Jonestown.

@HeeroYuy: Huh I wasn't the only one who though the same thing :)

Do you know what this manga needs? 
Bruce Campbell, pills, the T-virus and WESKEEEER!!! CHRIIIIISS!!!!!
lanaswifton Feb. 2, 2010 at 11:53 a.m.
@Sorantheman: Bruce Campbell makes everything better. Maybe he'll play Jet in the Cowboy Bebop flick.

Sounds cool.  I hope they don't screw it up like they do most (Hellsing, Vampire Hunter D, Blood the movie not with standing) Vampire animes. 
 
If this was a hentai the Zombies would want to have sex with the girls/women.

Awesome!  How is the manga?  Any good?
