Highschool of the Dead
 
According to the caption of Monthly Dragon Age March 2010 issue on 7 Net Shopping, manga Highschool of the Dead was announced to get an anime adaptation. The authors will resume the serialization of the manga from the issue after one-year hiatus.


Summary:

A mysterious, lethal disease is on the loose worldwide, resulting in a catastrophic death rate of humanity, and the increasing rise of attacks, caused by the living dead.

In Japan, several high school students and a school nurse have banded together to escape Fujimi Private High School shortly after it was attacked by "them." The group now attempts to figure who or what was responsible for this plague, and in the meantime, attempt to survive the present apocalypse.

That is the best news I have heard so far in 2010!

... I just don't know where exactly they want to end? It's not like the manga had a finishing point before going on hiatus.

Omg great news!
The manga has lots of fanservice nad horror but thats why it's awesome <3

Bumped the manga thread with this recent announcement.

Whoever handles this adaptation had better put some major effort into it. Sato's unique visual style can easily be butchered if done poorly, plus all those action scenes are going to require a good degree of animation.

As for the manga, I hope they just start ending it soon so at least the anime won't be forced to wrap things up (*coughTokkocough*).

OMFG now I only need Mirai Nikki!

KOapps 2010-02-02 09:14

Great news, I started reading it some time ago, but stopped at some point. Maybe I'll continue now that there's coming an anime adaption of it.

This is amazing, I've been holding back from reading Highschool of the dead due to the hiatus, now they'll finally continue AND we get an anime? -bounces around- <3

felix 2010-02-02 09:27

Always wanted to check it out but kept forgetting, guess now I'll just wait for the anime.

Oooo.... now this is some really great news!

Very much looking forward to this, as long as they create a truthful adaption (and not an atrocity like what Shinbo did with Dance in the Vampire Bund)

Westlo 2010-02-02 09:38

Looking forward to this, even better news that the manga is continuing.

Master Anime 2010-02-02 09:50

Yeah double good news. The manga is back and become anime
i am so happy hearing this

RyougaElliot 2010-02-02 10:41

Woh. Certainly didn't expect the manga to resume anytime soon.

This has the chance to rock. Here's hoping.

problemedchild 2010-02-02 11:59

Excellent....

Nvis 2010-02-02 12:12

This will be good.

Sheba 2010-02-02 12:14

It better be a studio that can keep up with the gore. Something like Madhouse or IG. Otherwise, I am glad that the manga continues!

NorthernFallout 2010-02-02 12:45

This is awesome, including the continuation of the manga. One of my all-time favorites FINALLY \o/

As long as it isn't SHAFT...

Jze0 2010-02-02 21:28
