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...
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...
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.
In a time of great heroes, the evil Sephiroth and the power of Meteor were vanquished by a warrior named Cloud Strife and his companions. Now, though the life stream of the world has been restored, certain people have become sick with Geo Stigma -- an illness which is as mysterious as it is incurable. Meanwhile, in the shadows, a new enemy has appeared: Kadaj, who holds the key to the destruction of all life. Against insurmountable odds, Cloud, Tifa, Barrett, Cid and the rest of the gang must band together one last time to defeat Kadaj and save the world from annihilation.
A very obvious recommendation for all gaming fans. Both FF:AC and Res Evil are based on some very popular video games and have now made a successful transition to the animated screen.
You don't need to have played the games (or seen the live action Res Evil movies) to appreciate the movies, but you may miss out on the insider jokes for fans of the original.
The animation has been brought into the 21st century and the 3D graphics look stunning in HD. The story remains reasonably true for the die hard fans of each series, but accessible enough for first timers.
If you have seen (or indeed played) one, you're sure to enjoy the gaming basis of the other.
Both are movies that are based on widely popular video games that even if someone hasn't played the video games they could still watch the movies and enjoy either one. Though Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children tends to be something more of a fantasy action movie and Resident Evil is more zombie survival movie both are sure to filled both enough fighting to satisfy any action junkie out there. If you liked one then you should definitely consider watching the other.
Medusa is a mysterious illness which causes the body to petrify shortly after infection, found throughout the world and steadily increasing the death toll. In order to combat the disease, 160 lottery winners were chosen to be frozen until a cure could be found, one of whom is Kasumi - a twin whose sibling was not one of the chosen. Along with a group of others Kasumi awakens from her cryogenic chamber, but not to the same world she left it: prehistoric monsters roam the now-abandoned castle and eat the survivors, while endless giant thorns rise all around them. Against all odds, Kasumi and the others must now try to survive the horror of their situation and discover the truth behind what's happening, all the while waiting for the Medusa to finally claim their lives...
Both movies focus on a virus of somekind infecting people and ulimately killing them. Though in the case of Resident Evil the people who get infected turn into zombies and in King of Thorn the infected people turn to stone. But besides these differences they both begin to play out somewhat similarly. People start to get infected and then some amount of time later monster/zombies depending on which one you are watching begin to appear and start killing. Then from that a small band of people must fight for their survival against the zombies or monsters. Throw in some conspiracy involving a large company and these two titles look fairly similar. So if you liked one then you'll probably like the other as well.
If you found yourself drawn to the survival type story found in one of these movies of a deadly virus gone-wrong, then you'll find the other equally appealing. They both feature a group of people, confused and banding together for survival as they try to get to the bottom of a conspiracy.
In the far future, the world lives under the guidance of Olympus – a utopia built after the end of a global war that decimated over half the world’s population. Mankind lives beside both cyborgs and bioroids, a breed of genetically-engineered humans who don’t feel negative emotions. Deunan and Briareous continue to fight for the Olympus task force E.S.W.A.T., but after Briareous is injured in a mission involving a terrorist attack, Deunan is forced to partner with Tereus: a prototype combat bioroid whose genetic makeup was taken from Briareous. Together, the three must try to unravel an insidious terrorist plot and save Olympus once more.
While Resident Evil: Degeneration and Appleseed: Ex Machina don't have much in common plot-wise (except both being futuristic sci fi tales), they have a very similar cinematic feel. Both play out like a live action movie with awesome audio and animation, and will keep you hooked from beginning to end. Call it a hunch but if you liked one odds are you'd like the other.

Both anime involve viruses that attack humans and it's up to the lead characters to try and stop it from spreading more throughout the population. Both have a great amount of action that will leave you wanting to see more and more. The animation in RE is all CG where canaan is the normal animation type you see in anime but very detailed and lovely. Check one out if you liked the other.
