I see nothing to begin a fad out of it.

Try to see it as a sequel to Romero movies or a side story of Resident Evil. Sequels and side stories suck by default. Even if it ain't one of the above, people will still do the parallel and probably lose interest right away.
Why are you comparing HOTD with Hellsing? First of all Hellsing & HOTD are two different shows with different themes.

Hellsing is about a immoral, monstrous vampire whose boss is a staunch Protestant who kills anyone who is against her religion, her country and Queen, a badass catholic priest whose boss is a vicious bishop who hates anything that isn't Catholic, a silent, honorable, werewolf who's a bodyguard to a War mongering Nazi and the three way war between the three sides. The theme of this series is just a giant Rule Of Cool, Free For All battle.

HOTD is about a group of Japanese Highschool students trying to survive a zombie apocalypse. The series theme is about how this group who are use to their ordinary lives as everyday, average Japanese must learn to survive in this new world, without sacrificing their morals.

Second of all, just because the anime has no superpowered heroes fighting monsters, don't assume it sucks and will fail. (Alucard can be considered sucks because he always the Boring Invincible Hero who never lose in his battles. Never!)

The fact the protagonists of this series are just ordinary people makes it more cooler since it shows you don't need superpowers to survive a zombie apocalypse and be a BadAss.

So before you say something sucks, do a little a research on that subject to see if it really sucks or is really cool.

Only as far as the main group is concerned. The best thing about HSOTD is how it actually features some competence among military and law enforcement elements, i.e. them being able to survive past the first few days of a zombie apocalypse instead of being the ineffective rabble they're made out to be in many titles. I believe World War Z was mentioned in a post above, and yes it's a very applicable comparison to HSOTD.

Or many I just liked the fact that they actually featured zombies getting utterly decimated by an attack helicopter

And people had thrown a hissy fit at me when I suggested to check a sample of the original work before dickslapping with their unreasonable expectations and biases. That guy's posts in the former page just makes me go "I told you". Also, comparing two completely different subgenres of the horror genre = lol

I would like that the opening will be performed by the group of J-Rock Oldcodex telling to Madhouse.

Knowing the director, it's very likely Maximum The Hormone again. (like the second half of Deaht Note, and Kurozuka)

Lightbulb Highschool of the Dead opening

I found what looks more like Tokyo Majin (but with zombies, not demons like this series), so the opening will be sung by J-rock band OLDCODEX is more focused on ACID (which interprets Tokyo Majin themes) than Maximun the Hormone .

But for that which does not know, OLDCODEX is a J-Rock Band worked for Glory Heaven (of Lantis) which is composed by :
-Tatsuhisa Suzuki, nicknamed as Ta-2 when he work for OLDCODEX band (vocal)
-R.O.N (guitar)
-YoHsKE, nicknamed YorKE by Ta-2 (guitar)
-sae (Drums)

The style is more focused in the other J-Rock bands, such as ACID (Tokyo Majin), GRANRODEO (IGPX, Needless) and BACK-ON (Eyeshield 21, Air Gear, Murder Princess) and many more like Nightmare (Death Note, Claymore, Neuro, Moryou no Hako)...etc.

On Youtube, listen 6 OLDCODEX songs such as cresc., AWKWARD, ignite, unfinished, mono frontier and brace yourself.

On Myspace OLDCODEX official site, listen 2 of 3 new OLDCODEX (I don't find prayer, sorry) such as blue and sad day in the sunlight.

I hope than OLDCODEX glue the image of the opening song of Highschool of the Dead.

music tie in will likely be tied to conglomerate who funded the show. Until we know that, it's just shot in the dark speculation.

In the latest scanlated manga chapter, it is mentioned that the anime will start in July.

Has this been confirmed elsewhere?

Yes. Tokko for the gore style but not more (it this a shounen but Tokko is a seinen), Zombie Loan for zombies alongside and Chaos;Head as a survival harem.

IMHO, HSotD is very different in any one of them .. its like comparing.. grapes and jackfruit (screw apples and orange comparison - the difference between this title and those 3 are super duper huge)

HOTD is very Tokko-like (with a touch of gore, girls, without powers and many more) ?

Well, no, it's quite unlike Tokko. The closest comparison would be average highschool comedy/drama thrown in the zombie apocalypse subgenre.

I like Oldcodex but I very hope if they produce a new single to make HOTD opening (Oldcodex first single blue is released late month).

Going off the assumption that the series is 13 episodes, what will be the ending point? Nothing in the manga series right now jumps off as a good conclusion unless they go for an anime original ending.

Let us keep in mind that this is the anime thread, not the manga one. To start discussing about an ending point in particular would just be an invitation to spoilers.
