When the infected approached Rei and Takashi's school, it led to a gruesome blood bath that left the majority of students and staff dead or turned into the zombie-like monsters that have spread throughout the world. Together with a handful of other survivors, Rei and Takashi set forth to find their families in a world that is rapidly detoriating. Governments have collapsed, the killer disease is out of control, and people everywhere are trying their best to simply live through each day...
For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...
Both Elfen Lied and Highschool of the Dead are filled with blood. The creators don't hodl back when it comes to blood. They are both full of violence and gore. They are just both awesome.
Both of these series contain a lot of graphic places, both physically and ecchi wise (although HSotD barely slows down any on the ecchi) and have a rather dark tone throughout the series.
Ecchi and violence do I need to say more...okay I will. While the main story of both series is fairly different the main focus of each series is not and that is to entertain the viewer with scenes of complete/partial nudity and lots of gore. With an overall dark tone to both series if you've already seen one of them then you should strongly consider checking out the other.
Both Elfen Lied and High School of the Dead are full of over the top action and neither one shies away from showing violence or gore. Both shows also feautre copious amounts of fan service.
Action packed gore and violence are seen in High School of the Dead and Elfen Lied. Each series involving high school aged people taking on some element of the undead or supernatural.Both series with graphic scenes of the gore and ecchi nature for some entertainment.
If you liked High School Of The Dead, you will also like Elfen Lied, because they are two heavy anime, where there is no censorship in the blood, or violence. And that mixed with Ecchi. The story is dramatic, and you will certainly enjoy watching Elfen Lied.
Although theres story lines aren't in any way, shape or form close, what brings these two series together is the gore. Both showcase fantastical gruesome amounts of gratuitous gore, and leave you feeling unclean and depressed at some of the scenes.
Blood and gore, powerful women, and ecchi scenes galore. The animation styles are also similar. While the plots might be different, both play on human emotions.
Elfen Lied and Highschool of the Dead are two heavily ecchi, heavily gory titles that will easily appeal to the same audiences. I preferred Highschool of the two, but you'd likely appreciate both.
Both are gore fests with some light being shone on the darker side of humanity as one of the main themes. Highschool of the Dead will show peoples' greed and selfishness and resorting to baser instincts in order to survive, while Elfen Lied's main focus is the prejudice and suspicion that sometimes overwhelms and controls people to do terrible things to those undeserving.
Nakedness abounds in Elfen Lied, while extreme near-nakedness and panty-shots and fanservice are stuffed into nearly every scene of Highschool of the Dead. Both combine splattered heads with lots of ecchi, so if you're a fan of this oddly-satisfying combination, try either or.
Both High School of the Dead (HotD) and Elfen Lied are animes that are characterized by their violence and dark undertones. What stood out the most to me is that both of these animes put slapstick comedy in the middle of what would be a terrible situation to sometimes lighten the mood - they also hold nothing back when it comes to ecchi. If you liked one, give the other a shot.
It’s been some time since Raccoon City, the origin of the T-Virus outbreak, was wiped off the map by the military. Umbrella Corporation’s stock plummeted and a new pharmaceutical company called WilPharma has risen in its place; however, unlike its predecessor, WilPharma is working on a vaccine for the illness that turns humans into bloodthirsty zombies. Claire Redfield has just landed in WilPharma’s town to visit a friend when she finds herself in the center of a zombie-filled bloodbath. Leon Kennedy and members of the Special Response Team are called in to save Claire and the other survivors from the airport, saving an important member of WilPharma in the process. What has caused this new recurrance of the T-Virus? Claire and Leon must get to the bottom of things before nefarious foes are able to carry out their plans...
Both anime involves undead zombies that eat humans to increase their sizes. They're infected the same and die the same. The main characters try their best to survive with the best of their abillity. Both has to deal with the pain and loss of friends.
both these movies involve the living dead, with the exception that highschool of the dead is more of a well "high school scheme" you'll live H.O.T.D if you got a taste for humorous as well as action packed footage, awh i can't wait more more H.O.T.D, as well as some explicit anime girls :D wink wink guys haha, enjoy!
Highschool of the Dead and Resident Evil nearly share everything at plot and story.
An infectious virus is running loose and if you are bitten by a carrier, you'll become one of them.
Thus, both share the virus plot and the surviving plot.
Both have zombies in them and people must fight to survive against them. Highschool of the Dead take on a story about the first outbreak where Resident Evil certain people are aware and fight to stop those responcible. Lots of action and gut wrenching scenes both are sure to please the zombie lover in you.
Without resident evil, there'd be no HOTD, duh. Things they have in common are: Zombies, people desperately fighting for their survival, useless governments and of course more zombies. You should see HOTD as a guide to what normal people would do, as opposed to what government people would do.
If you liked one, check out the other.
HotD and RE:D have much of the premise, there's a zombie outbreak and people needing to deal with it, in common. Both of them also have their fair share of high-octane action caused by said outbreak, so if you liked one of them and want more zombie-slaying action you might consider checking out the other one.
Both for the most part completely center around a group of people who try to survive as a horde of zombies come after them. I mean seriously do you need more of a reason than the fact that they both have zombies to watch either of these. But if so then both series also feature a rather nice amount of action though Highschool of the Dead does have ecchi in it as opposed to Resident Evil which has none. If you liked one and are a zombie lover then you should really checkout the other.
Both of the series have alot of gun and action if you like one you'll like the other. They also have a good story and leave you wanting more.
As seen in both; Resident Evil and Highschool of the Dead, it portrays similar circumstances where a group of survivors must escape and fight their way through an "outbreak" of a zombie-like apocalypse to safety. So if zombies are your thing, you can't go by these two titles.
Much to the annoyance of Kei, he and his childhood friend Katou have died, having been torn apart by a train. But rather than finding themselves at the gates of heaven, the duo materialize in a room full of strangers and a giant black sphere known as GANTZ. As if dying once wasn’t bad enough, the occupants of the room are then forced to embark on dangerous missions to kill strange aliens; missions that very few return from. Now, Kei, Katou, and a well-endowed friend must fight for their freedom with an arsenal of guns, high powered suits, and a very low chance of survival.
Gantz and HSOTD have zero in similarity in plot, but they both are gore and ecchi filled series that will surely interest the same parties. Gore level is on par, though HSOTD has way more ridiculous/stupid ecchi (ie boobs as big as an upper body) than Gantz. Still, fans of one should appreciate the other.
Both anime have a group of confused people suddenly fighting for their lives against monsters. Both have a good amount of fanservice to them but Highschool of the Dead clearly has more. Lots of action, blood and violence. Check out one if you liked the other.
Both Highschool of the Dead and GANTZ are very gorey, however, GANTZ has alot more gore, violence and exploding heads.
Both have fanservice, however in GANTZ, the fanserver is far more extreme. They will take off all their clothes and "insert", if you liked the fanservice here you'll most likely enjoy GANTZ's fanservice aswell.
Just to warn you though, if you were somehow upset when a character in Highschool of the Dead passed away, you'll probably have a heart attack with GANTZ.
Both are great animes, they are both gorey and full of fanservice (+romance).
Should the main characters in Gantz and HOTD ever meet, they would find that they have quite a few things in common. In both series, the protagonist is an average high school student leading a perfectly normal life--until some earth-shaking event throws them into a world full of violence and nearly-naked women.
If you like fluid action scenes rife with gory violence coupled with seemingly unnecessary segments of ecchi fanservice, either of these anime is for you.
Both these anime revolve around the central theme of a group of young people attempting to survive when suddenly and dramatically faced with monsters. The main protaganists in each have an overwhelming survuval instinct that gets them through hopless looking situations. They both contain graphic violence and echhi. Gantz has a deeper and more compelling story but like one and I am sure you will enjoy the other.
Both series feature a lot of gore and ecchi. Both series also feature fighting off adverseries, zombies in HOTD and aliens(?) in GANTZ.
Maebara Keiichi, an ordinary high-school boy, has transferred to a new school in Hinamizawa, a small rural village. At the outset everything seems peaceful and Keiichi becomes friends with a nice group of schoolgirls with whom he spends many idle summer afternoons. Suddenly violence encroaches upon the blissful peace of the village and Keiichi becomes entangled in an endless cycle of fear and death. The inconsistent, but inevitable horrors of Hinamizawa are told and retold becoming an endless and inescapable nightmare of insanity. Will it end even if the mystery of Hinamizawa is solved?
watching Highschool of the Dead reminds me of Higurashi--albeit with a lot of ecchi. this series really holds nothing back, as far as the violence goes. Higurashi is the same in that it captures the expressions of the characters really well. if you liked one, chances are you'll like the other.
i think they are similar in terms of gore, but higurashi is the greater horror. They both have teenagers who didnt want to be involved but had found themselves in the middle of it all.
The feeling of a cold chill slowly crawling its way up your spine... the feeling of dread as you watch the world's sense of humanity dwindling into the night... and the feeling of excitement as you eagerly feast your eyes on the next episode are all trademarks of Higurashi and Highschool of the Dead. They both deal with the same interesting topic... "In the face of danger would you forsake your humanity?"
Both are very interesting and very thrilling to watch. Higurashi leans towards the "creepy and disturbing" but nontheless entertaining; while Highschool of the Dead (a.k.a H.O.T.D) has many exhilerating action scenes which leave you begging for more.
H.O.T.D while having an interesting and very creepy foundation (world overrun by zombies, survival of the fittest) doesn't quite make the cut as a "horror" anime but rather an "adventure" anime, because of all the action scenes. Higurashi on the other hand has a much more gloomy, tense, grotesque and disturbing element to it which is surprisingly addictive (a warning though, Higurashi is NOT for the faint of heart, the very first scene of the very first episode is enough to turn off anybody who isn't a fan of horror.)
H.O.T.D has a much broader "scope" in that the world has been overrun by zombies a la Resident Evil and there is no "safe place" in the world. The sane have been driven mad from paranoia and succumbed to their primal instinct of "survival of the fittest." On the other hand, Higurashi takes place in a small village secluded from the city, which only adds to the creepy element; because of the village's seclusion there is no place to run for safety (unless you run for a couple of hours.)
From the superficial description provided it would appear that these two animes are vastly different; however they are the same in that they provoke the viewer to delve deeper for "what it means to be human" H.O.T.D capitalizes it while Higurashi may not directly pose this question to the viewer. All in all, both are very good animes and if you enjoyed one you would certainly enjoy the other.
Each of these series are rather graphic, pushing what the viewer sees. They also each have some supernatural elements in them along with a rather dark tone throughout. HSotD is, however, extremely ecchi, while Higurashi is just very graphic in places.
Probably the strongest point of both series in my opinion are the graphics. Both series aren't afraid to show some of the mor graphic violence that they have to offer. While Highschool of the Dead as a lot more ecchi in than Higurashi which has little to none ecchi in it both series have a main plot the resolve around mysterous circumstances that keep the viewer wondering. With their rather dark tone and story watching either one is an extremely enjoyable experience for the viewer.
Both animes have gore, are kind of disturbing and had fanservice. Higschool of the Dead is like The Walking Dead meets Higurashi.
Ranmaru is young cop with a dark past. As one of the few survivors of a mindless slaughter in his apartment block, he joins a special unit called TOKKI to avenge his parents. On his first case, the already ghastly murder scene turns to one of terror, as the inhuman killers start to massacre the police. After being saved at the last minute by a secret unit named TOKKO who wield swords instead of guns, Ranmaru's mind is filled with questions and he is determined to find out the answers, no matter what it takes. What are these monsters, and why did they recognize him?
If you Like HOTD you may like TOKKO because blood, gore and violance, a decent story but a bad cliffhanger at the end. But in terms of violence just as good as HOTD.
Tokko and Highschool of the Dead are both horror series with a large about of random ecchi as well - though HSOTD is FAR more extreme in that arena. HSOTD is better in a horror sense but both are fairly brainless series.
Blood splattering galore. Both series involve characters in high school fighting blood sucking zombies or demons!
both are series that feature a lot of fanservice and are exsessivley violent. They feature little charecetr development. Both are nfun series if your not in the mood to really think.
Tokko and High School of the Dead are filled with violence, gore, and blood. The horror experienced in each of these series involves a new element while drawing in some fabulous fanservice.
In both anime there is a group of people who go around killing undead/paranormal phenomena. Highschool of the Dead focuses more on a survival story with a touch of harem. Tokko is a goverment agency comprised of the chosen few that combats the paranormal while having a love intrest with the main protagonist.
