Highschool of the Dead is set in present-day Japan, beginning as the world is struck by a deadly pandemic that turns humans into zombies, euphemistically referred to by the main characters as \"Them\" (奴ら, Yatsu-ra). The story follows a group of high school students and the school's nurse as they deal with the worldwide catastrophic event known as the \"Outbreak\". As the cast tries to survive the zombie apocalypse, they must also face the additional threats of societal collapse, in the form of dangerous fellow survivors, and the possible decay of their own moral codes. Starting from the high school, the students escape into town where they must deal with a corrupt teacher and his students. They check their homes for survivors, and pick up a little girl and a dog. Later, they hole up at a mall, travel through a police station, and eventually make their way to an elementary school that is supposedly a safe zone.
The series' opening theme is \"Highschool of the Dead\" by Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets. The series' closing theme songs differ in each episode, and each are sung by Maon Kurosaki.

The CD single features the TV and instrumental versions of \"Highschool of the Dead\" and a new song called \"Ripple\" (リプル, Ripuru), along with an instrumental version of the song. A CD containing all 12 ending themes sung by Kurosaki was released by Geneon on September 22, 2010, along with an original soundtrack.
Illustrator Shōji Satō featured Rei and Saeko in crossover illustrations for his other manga Triage X and the video game Lollipop Chainsaw, where their high school uniforms are available as unlockable costumes for main character Juliet Starling.

At the military camp, Jin Seon-mu and several other officers watch as the zombified Lee Jae-jun tries to escape from his restraints. Seon-mu tells his staff to seek Jae-jun's parents' permission to use their son as a test subject, then goes to inform Park Eun-hee that she should not expect special treatment and should stop bothering his soldiers. Eun-hee accepts this, but asks that the military send a chopper to Hyosan High School to save any surviving students. Although Seon-mu says nothing to her in response, he later tells Choi Sung-won to send a helicopter to scan all high schools in Hyosan and evacuate any survivors. Sung-won asks Seon-mu if he wants to send a helicopter to the zone where Seon-mu's mother lives, but Seon-mu says he cannot do that until it is named as a rescue zone.
We've described Blue Exorcist as \"Hellboy in high school\" before, and that description still holds up. The series follows Rin, the spawn of Satan who aims to become a demon-fighting exorcist, and we recommend watching it with its original Japanese cast.
