Highschool of the Dead Trailer on YouTube

Posted on: March 31, 2010

Thanks to Kadokawa’s YouTube channel, you can now see a sneak preview of the zombie series Highschool of the Dead, due to come out later this year. Based on the survival action manga by Satou Daisuke and Satou Shouji, the anime has a pretty solid staff already, with director Araki Tetsuo (Death Note) and screenwriter Kuroda Yousuke (way too much to list) anchoring the production. Old reliable Madhouse is taking care of the animation, and while a date hasn’t yet been announced, I’m tentatively tagging this one for a summer air date.

From the trailer, it looks like this is pastiche B horror with a mild Japanese twist, between the T&A shots and the copious amounts of blood flying around. If that’s the case, even a horror wuss like me should be able to have fun with it!
