January Anime Challenge: Highschool of the Dead Week 1

January Challenge: Highschool of the Dead Week 1

Dead Men Walking

Konnichiwa Minna. It is time for our anime Challenge. This month we have a special treat for Supernatural Action Horror fanatiks. If you liked Television shows such as The Walking Dead, games such as Resident Evil or movies such as Night of The Living Dead, then get ready to bite into this month’s anime challenge: Highschool of the Dead (shortened to HOTD by adoring fanatiks).

In the anime, we enter a world where an outbreak just started. Imagine going to school, and everything is normal until you see a strange figure crawling to the school gate and taking a … bloody gruesome nibble out of a school staff member. Imagine a chaos breaking out as infected people turn into living corpses whose would just love to have you for breakfast, supper and lunch. Imagine the trauma as your friends, family, and random nice people become snacks for the dead and in turn become hungry undead creatures. Now add anime elements such as fan service, a trigger-happy gun nerd, a very clueless nurse, a sword-yielding beauty and an assortment of other types of anime heroes and anti-heroes and you have a recipe for entertainment that will glue you to your seat.

Join us in the challenge and follow the story to see who will survive the undead apocalypse. Our challenge for this week is to watch episode 1 – 3 of HOTD. Let us see if our heroes will survive or if they are just dead men walking.

We thank all our readers for their input about the challenge! A special bow to Willem from our WhatsApp group for suggesting Highschool of the Dead! If you have suggestions or comments about your impressions of the series, please feel free to share them on our FB Page! Have a super sugoi week and a profound 2018!
