From Director Tetsuro Araki (Deathnote, Black Lagoon), and adapted from the highly successful manga of the same name by Daisuke Sato, comes one of the hottest new shows of the Summer, High School of the Dead. A deadly new disease is ravaging the world, turning the populace into mindless zombies, and the number of infected is skyrocketing by the second. As their fellow classmates and teachers succumb to the infection around them, a small group of students at Fujimi High School are fighting for their lives after surviving the initial outbreak. It is up to Takashi Komuro to unite the group of weary survivors and try to escape the horrors that surround them. In this new world of the living dead...will they escape?
A deadly virus is turning the world's population into walking corpses. While the world erupts into chaos around them, Takashi Komuro and his friends frantically search for a way to break free from the living dead. As the virus spreads throughout the school, how far must they go to escape the infected?
As the entire school quickly spirals into chaos, more players jump into the fight, handmade weapons locked and loaded. New enemy traits are discovered, and the survivors realize the situation they're really in.
The enemy's weak points are discovered and exploited. The human condition is put to the test, and everyone's base survival instincts kick in. Tensions rise as more people swell the ranks, and one survivor refuses to continue with the group.
Z-Day +1...In times of crisis, even the most mundane activities become a monumental task. While on their way to the rendezvous, Rei and Komuro find that there's more to fear in this new world besides the walking dead...
The population grows desperate, and chaos runs wild in the streets. Crossing any bridge presents a world of problems for Komuro and Rei, while dissension among the ranks splits the bus group in two.
Time for some R&R! While the group relaxes and gathers supplies at the safe house, things heat up on the streets, and drastic measures must be taken to keep the peace.
Fully rested and armed to the teeth, the group looks on as people are eaten alive in the streets below and learn a valuable lesson: you can't save them all. However, in the zombie apocalypse, there are always exceptions...
An animal is said to be the most dangerous when cornered. After crossing the river, the group takes a wrong turn and becomes trapped. With no help in sight and a wall of the living dead surrounding them, how many waves can they fight off before they're overwhelmed?
After narrowly escaping with their lives, Komuro and Saeko must make their way alone and rendezvous with the others. Saeko's true nature is revealed, and it begs the question: Is her beauty only skin deep?
The group reunites at Takagi's house, an impenetrable fortress run by her parents and their army of workers. After surviving this long on their own, being absorbed into a larger group becomes a huge concern.
Tempers flare in the House of Saya Takagi. Decisions must be made, and a leader must be chosen. Honor, love, devotion, and mercy are put to the test, and a man from the group's past makes an unexpected return.
After an EMP wave shuts down all electronic equipment in a wide radius, Komuro and his friends must defend the mansion or risk losing all that matters to them. The walking dead are inching closer, and time is running out...
