In March 2011, the manga was put on hiatus; it had fallen into {{Schedule Slip}}s before, but Chapter 29 was the final nail, as it concluded the number of chapters needed for Volume 7. Reasons for the hiatus are scarce: Daisuke Sato doesn't seem to have been writing any other manga series at the moment, but Shouji Sato was still seen working on ''Manga/TriageX'', a series that he produces by himself. Shouji was supposedly also taking his time with research on weapons, vehicles, and so on for future ''HOTD'' chapters. He even colored all seven volumes of ''HOTD'' during the hiatus. In April 2013, the ''HOTD'' team released the manga's 30th chapter, then put the series back on hiatus. Almost four years later, on March 22 2017, Daisuke Satō tragically passed away from heart disease, making it [[AuthorExistenceFailure highly unlikely the series will ever return from hiatus.]]

* AdultFear: The first couple episodes are particularly brutal. Scores of teenagers are simply massacred in some of the most horrific ways imaginable with no pathos whatsoever. Imagine you were an adult survivor of whatever zombie attack hit your office, you're able to get home and you learn that your 15-year-old daughters' high school was ravaged. Your worst fears are confirmed when you learn [[http://www.citymanga.com/highschool_of_the_dead/chapter-1/56/ she died slowly in agonizing pain]], and not only did she come back to murder others, she was killed AGAIN by friends who knew her since grade school; shedding not one tear or giving not even the slightest shit about killing her again. Yeah. Kids in the first couple episodes are livestock.

* GenreSavvy: Everyone is quite aware that they are in the midst of a Zombie Apocalypse, even if they are pointedly ''NotUsingTheZWord'', and act accordingly.

* LawyerFriendlyCameo: Gee Hirano, you sure do look a lot like [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]] right [[http://i53.tinypic.com/35hiyol.png here]]. This could probably also qualify as a [[NobuyukiHiyama voice actor]] [[ActorAllusion joke]].

* ZombieApocalypse: This story seems to follow the Romero rules, but "they" have a ''very'' strong grip. Also the zombies start slow, but if they hear a sound nearby they can move quicker. The fact that it's played as realistically as possible is also notable. The protagonists test and figure out that "they" must find things through vibrations. No circulation also means that in Japan's humid weather, the dead will probably decompose to the point of uselessness in a little under a month. Nobody has a clue how the dead are still capable of moving, though.

* AssholeVictim:
** When the outbreak initially hits, two girls are shown running through a hallway, holding hands and cheerfully vowing to stick together. The moment one of them gets bitten on the leg and is being pulled on by multiple zombies, the other girl takes a complete FaceHeelTurn and throws her friend into the zombies, even calling her a "stupid bitch." [[spoiler:Of course, she doesn't really get very far after that. In other words, there were more right behind her.]]
** A thug who threatens to rape one of the main characters, and some really stupid protesters who were in denial of the dead coming back to life and refused to cooperate with the police or the ultranationalists.
*** Thug also counts as TragicVillain, as he was forced to kill his entire family (including his little sister) when they turned into zombies. He readily admits that he's insane, and argues anyone in his situation would be.

* KissingUnderTheInfluence: In the OVA, most of the group hook up with each other after getting high on the fumes of burning hydrangeas. [[spoiler:[[LesYay Rei and Saeko]] make out while thinking that the other is Takashi, and [[LesYay Saya and Shizuku]] get rather cozy while hallucinating that the other is Saya's mother and Rika, respectively. Meanwhile, Hirano hallucinates that he's at a Vietnam War protest and dry-humps a broom, and Takashi fends off four of ''them'' in his sleep while thinking that they are the four girls]].
