* BladeOnAStick: Rei was a member of the sojutsu (spear) club at school, so she's familiar with such weapons. Multiple survivors also use makeshift spears as weapons, typically a staff with a knife wrapped to the end. [[spoiler: Rei's mother Kiriko]] uses an actual spear that she took from her husband's antique collection at home.

** [[spoiler: Asami's TearfulSmile and salute is the last image Kohta sees of her, [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-55384-60/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-25.html through his sight scope]], right before [[MercyKill having to pull the trigger]]]].
** After being bitten, Tajima, jokes with Rika about [[spoiler: not being able to have sex with her]], when she asked if he had a last request. Then he sends her on her way and sets off of a bomb, taking himself out along with the fuel tanker [[TakingYouWithMe and all the zombies in the vicinity of the blast.]]

** {{Lampshaded}} when the team raids a [[AbandonedHospital hospital]] to acquire plasma for a dying old woman. [[spoiler: They point out that since the woman needs ''regular'' blood transfusions and they can only bring back enough usable plasma for one, they are essentially risking all their lives to buy her an extra week or two at the most. One of them does in fact die during the raid. As if that weren't already messed up, the old couple commits suicide a short time later]].

** The mall arc introduced the none-too-subtle triangle between Kohta, Saya, and Asami, though [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy Saya had decided to step aside]] so Kohta and Asami could be together, and [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-11333-17/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-23.html even suggested taking her with them.]] [[spoiler: Until Asami [[ShipSinking got taken out of the picture]]]].

** Midway into the ''"Drifters of the Dead"'' OVA special, Saeko and Takashi flee to a secluded area of the island in an attempt to [[spoiler: escape the effects of hallucinogenic fumes]]. While they're alone, they begin making out with Takashi lying on top of her. From there, the camera pans downward until only their lower legs remain in the frame, stopping just as Saeko spreads her legs for him, with her barefoot resting next to her discarded bikini bottom. The scene then FadesToBlack. [[spoiler: Sadly, it was all in Takashi's head, as the real Saeko and the others find him still hallucinating while surrounded by a group of bikini-clad zombies]].

* ShootTheShaggyDog: [[spoiler: The scenario of getting medical treatment for the old woman. In the clinic, one of the able-bodied survivors dies. Later, when the zombies get into the mall, the old woman and her husband commit suicide by jumping off the roof anyway, meaning all that came of it was one less survivor and conflict between the characters.]]

* IRejectYourReality: With the world around them suddenly changing for the worse in less than a day, many people in Tokonosu City simply ''refuse'' to acknowledge the existence or consequences of a ZombieApocalypse. Instead, these people see "them" as simply victims of an unknown epidemic and treat anyone who kill "them" as violent, bloodthirsty maniacs. Reasons for this selfish attitude include the desperate need to save infected loved ones and the desperate hope to restore social normalcy as soon as possible, at any cost. When their delusions are shattered, these people often go insane, usually while being devoured by "them".

* AdultFear: The first couple episodes are particularly brutal. Scores of underage 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 you 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.

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 be writing any other manga series at the moment, but Shouji Sato is still seen working on ''Manga/TriageX'', a series that he produces by himself. Shouji is 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.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The series has enough scenes where things are deliberately made to resemble sexual acts, that it was decided it needed [[Radar/HighschoolOfTheDead its own page]] to cover them all.
