Based on the ultra-violent manga by Daisuke Sato, directed by Tetsuro Araki (Deathnote, Black Lagoon) and produced by the internationally famed studio Madhouse (Deathnote, Ninja Scroll, Vampire Hunter D-Bloodlust, Wicked City) HIGH SCHOOL OF THE DEAD combines hordes of flesh-eating zombies with state of the art animation for one of the most action packed anime series ever!

Now it’s up to Takashi Komuro to unite a small group of blood-soaked survivors in a desperate bid to escape! School’s not just out for the summer, it may be out forever as a handful of students face the ultimate test, survival, in HIGH SCHOOL OF THE DEAD!

WOO HOO!!!
Finally, something kick-ass, something gory, something…not pretty vampires/werewolves. Hell, at least True Blood keeps it “real”.

Thank Buddha.

Doesn’t stretch too good. That other one centers with black really good though. Thanks man!

Right, sorry, been a little busy :S

It’s all good, and fully understandable.
I was just curious since the pic you used was for the manga, and the vid was a horrble bootleg rather than the offical KADOKAWA teaser.

The original video seemed to me to be the same thing, just a couple extra seconds of something in the beginning.

It was the same, just bootleg cam/phone version of it when they premiered the PV.
