''Apocalypse no Toride'', or "Fortress of the Apocalypse" by Kuraishi Yuu, follows 4 inmates at the Shouran Juvenile Reformatory: the falsely accused Maeda Yoshiaki, cool but dangerous Masafumi Yoshioka, the strong and silent but fair Iwakura Gou, and the smart-mouthed genius Yamanoi Mitsuru. Upon arriving at Shouran on false murder convictions, Maeda Yoshiaki would rather be anywhere on earth, but when a van full of infected zombies crashes into the prison and its passengers begin to attack the guards and inmates, Maeda and his cellmates begin a fight to the death to stay alive amongst the infected from the outside world and the anarchy that arises within the prison. Eventually forced to leave the prison's walls of safety, the boys of Cell 4 find horrors in the ravaged cities beyond what they could have ever imagined.

* BadAssPacifist: Played with when it comes to the cultists. They believe the zombies are divine, and have developed a special fighting style to deal with them without killing them. However, when it comes to humans who get in their way, they either shoot them on sight or toss them to the hoard.

* [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie And Then Maeda Was A Bokor:]] He's certainly infected, showed the increased regeneration and the ability to control the mindless zombies. The change wasn't full yet though, he still had only 1 pupil... and his genitals. [[spoiler:Not so much for Yamanoi, who was later revealed to be infected when he was earlier scratched by an infected days ago. But he managed to retain what is left of his humanity long enough to saving his friends in a HeroicSacrifice.]]

* GenreSavvy: Mitsuru is very intelligent, and figures out many central plot points simply through intuition. For instance, he manages to figure out that the Bokor's goal was to infect Maeda, and that [[spoiler: the infection probably spreads very slowly based on how it would do things like bite of its own tongue so it could force Maeda to drink the resulting blood.]] When a survivor who's a biologist contact's the juvenile detention facility, he nearly hangs up on her because he's offended at how she felt the need to explain the nature of the outbreak to him using rabies as a point of reference--he'd figured out that a virus was to blame ''way'' earlier in the story.

** At first the zombies show intelligence even as they try to devour others, but become mindless very quickly.

* GagPenis: In Chapter 27, poor Maeda suffers the indignity of getting his boxers yanked off by the other boys for a reason that MakesSenseInContext. Their faces register shock and what looks like horror for a second, but the tension is [[MoodWhiplash hilariously deflated]] by the discovery that their mild-mannered friend is seriously ''hung''.
-->'''Yoshioka:''' Jesus Christ, talk about a ''monster''.\\
'''Maeda:''' I ''said'' I'd check it ''myself!''\\
'''Yamanoi:''' Was it that big ''before'' you [[spoiler:got infected]]?\\
'''Iwakura:''' Man, you're packing a ''desert eagle'' down there.



* HealingFactor: [[spoiler: The Bokor can regenerate from having its head cut off or even its brains blown to bits. Though it takes time for it to fully regenerate.]]
