Synopsis:

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...

They are both were high school students are trying to figure things out.   HOTD tries to figure out why there are Zombies all over the place and shooting them down while Ghost Hunt tries to figure out where all the poltergistes, ghosts, fox fires, and etc., come from and get rid of them. 

They are both really good anime because they were both about some what of the same thing.  But I won't make that decision for you :)

Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls

Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls

In a world where Japan's security rests in the hands of super-powered samurai and their masters called "generals", Muneakira Yagyuu, the official swordsmanship tutor to the family of the shogun, arrives at Buou Academy in order to serve as head of the school's dojo. However, while he hopes this will be a routine assignment at an all-girl's school, everything changes when a strange girl falls from the sky with a power of a Master Samurai and no memory...

Orre

Both High School of the Dead and Hyakka Ryouran use fairly simple formulas for entertainment: fighting + shameless ecchi fanservice = win. Basically, if you want to see harems of well-endowed girls (often getting their clothes torn to shreds) fighting and falling on top of the main character, then either of these anime will utterly delight you. Plots and depth are secondary to these features.

eaper

Each of these series focus around action, a harem, and ecchiness. Both series "progressing the art of ecchi" with 'breath taking' innovations. If you enjoy apocolyptic/post-apocolyptic battles with huge boobs and a somewhat interesting stroy line, then both of these series work for you.

Mirai Nikki TV

Mirai Nikki TV

Yuki is a disaffected middle school boy who has no dreams or goals in life; in fact, the only thing he has is his diary. Writing down everything he observes and documenting every thought, the young boy uses it as an outlet for his imagination. One morning, however, Yuki wakes up to find his cell phone filled with diary entries for the next ninety days. Thinking nothing of it, he continues his morning until he begins to realize that everything on his phone is rapidly coming to pass, and it isn't just mere coincidence. Now, Yuki suddenly finds himself thrust into a survival game against other future diary owners to become the new Lord of Time.

If you like one of these animes, you will probably like the other as both series handle their fighting scenes in a very epic way. Art is very detailed and can make certain characters look creepy at times. There is also a good amount of drama that happens between characters and even some romance.

charvisioku

Both of these animes actually explore the relationships that would occur during a crisis such as Z-day or a Hunger Games-style death match and they focus on the desperation people would feel. They're also both brutal and don't hold back on the violence

Sankarea

Sankarea

Chihiro is a macabre-loving high school student who collects horror films and thinks shacking up with a zombie chick would be hot. But though the idea of death is alluring, when faced with the actual death of his beloved pet cat, the teen buckles under the grief, and becomes determined to bring his deceased companion back to life. Every night, he sneaks off to an abandoned building and attempts to brew a resurrection potion, and it's here that he meets Rea, the beautiful daughter of the well-to-do Sanka family. However, the girl is having some troubles of her own, and after a mix-up ends up zombified herself! Now the horror fanatic is living the dream with his very own zombie girlfriend, but how will the pair deal with Rea's new diet and the onset of rigor mortis?

While the plot, gore factor, and characters are very different in these animes, there are a couple of things that make them compatible. One, both involve zombies. Granted, most of the traditional zombies in Sankarea are only in Chihiro's movies. Two, the ecchi humor is extremely similar, though definitely more present in High School of the Dead. Third, both involve someone (and we won't mention names) whom should probably be labeled a pedobear. So, if that's up your ally, give these animes a try.

HotD is more realistic and plot-heavy; Sankarea is more slice-of-lifey. But basically if you like boobs and zombies, they are both a good pick for you.

Sekirei

Sekirei

Minato Sahashi was living a normal life; he had just failed his college entrance exam for a second year in a row, and lived a quiet life in a single's apartment. That is, until the busty Musubi fell from the sky on top of him! She is a Sekirei, one of 108 that are destined to fight each other until only one remains; and he or she will ascend to heaven with his or her chosen one known as an Ashikabi. Minato soon finds himself in the embrace of Musubi, becoming her Ashibaki - but his life will only become more complicated. Musubi isn't the last to claim Minato as her Ashibaki, and what's worse, plenty of other Sekirei and opponents stand in his way!

Both have copious ammounts of ecchi and ass kicking chicks, and Sekirei has the advantage of being a straight action comedy anime, without the whole zombie thing to clash with it.

hamletsmage

Scantily clad hotties with bouncy chests, a pention for kicking ass, and that generally fawn over the one guy in the group that doesn't do much. Add in a splash of drama, some panty-shot-filled action sequences, and that one cute loli character, and you have both High School of the Dead and Sekirei. While High School might have more gore, it definitely has a similar feel to Sekirei.
