Lets play a game, shall we?

(This is a review of the Anime)

Here's the game. Try to watch this series and count every time 5 seconds go by and there is no fan service. Now five seconds may seem like an exaggeration, but in the fight scenes? Just try, I'm being serious.

Now, there were some good parts, but most of the story was underwhelming, and for the most part, the characters were just silly, and stereotypical. It brought up ideas of how humans would break down in these situations, and the gore was not held back. The fight scenes were well put together... if not for the absolutely ridiculous fan service.

I might have been okay with really skimpy outfits, or even just a lot of panty shots, (or even if the characters were just plain naked and sexy) but it was like the fight scenes were choreographed to exploit T&A as much as possible. And it wasn't even good T&A! It was gainaxing on drugs. The breasts were like pairs of water balloons being swung wildly about by a 5 year old! At one point, the main character shot a bullet in between a girls breasts, as they flapped around individually to avoid it... in slow motion. Not to mention this kind of thing happened between every scene of fighting. And sometimes, when they ran out of shots to exploit the main cast with, they would get a panty shot of a zombie.

I don't understand how someone could enjoy this, High School of the Dead has bad writing, characters, and (if there is such a thing, it's this) bad fan service. Don't waste your time with this.

Dude, please point out that a lot of the worse stuff is obviously from the Anime, the manga never did the boob bullet dodge or anything like that.

Oh, sorry, dude above, I didn't even know there was a manga. I hate it when people do that to Rosario To Vampire, because the manga's absolutely great, but the anime sucks, and they never point out that they are reviewing the Anime. I'll change it now.

The anime DID suck. Both series.

In any case, are you TRYING to get people wasted/killed?
