Highschool of the Dead

Highschool of the Dead

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...

I feel like HSotD was ecchi masquerading as horror, while Eden is horror that's just filled with way too much ecchi. Regardless, both will appeal to fans of the other due to the heavy ecchi combined with survival horror.

Fireaxe Fireaxe says...

Two extremely entertaining, adrenaline filled "survival" manga with lots of horror elements. Fans of the genre, make sure to give any of these two a shot and you won't be disappointed (but be prepared, both are just as heavy in the ecchi department).

Funari Funari says...

One's about a zombie outbreak while the other's being stranded in fantastic circumstances, but at their core HSotD and Cage of Eden are very similar: they're about a bunch of people trying to adapt and survive in the middle of a desperate survival situation. And offing people. Lots of people. Gruesomely. And ecchi.

Speaking of offing people, the series handle it somewhat differently. While the main cast is unlikely to suffer a horrible fate in either, the minor characters are very clearly differentiated from the tight main party in HSotD and usually given the kind of life expectancy you'd expect in this genre, Cage of Eden has a larger party following the core group, in which personalities emerge and some even rise into semi-secondary character status, giving genuine suspicion of whether they'll survive or not.

Also, the way they handle ecchi separates them somewhat. Cage of Eden's seems to be more either a natural part of the action or reserved for calmer moments, while HSotD seems to prefer the path of ecchi as a separate plot element for the sake of ecchi itself while adding comedy elements.

Still, the main settings are very similar survival horror and even the party line-up contains fairly similar archetypes, so if you liked the one, I see no reason to not try the other, too, at the very least for comparison purposes. I found Cage of Eden the superior one of the two, myself, but fans of the genre could probably go either way.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

Both are of the excellent genre of horror-boobs, which is a slam dunk of fusing boobs and some elements of horror. These two put more focus on ecchi than actual horror though.

Also delving into survival, they portray adaptation to a life-changing event (Zombies and your plane crashing onto a mysterious island with extinct animals would do that to ya) and overall survivalism against said malefactors, themselves and other humans, whom are the true monsters in either series.

In both series, humans are scum, to the dismay of the main character parties and through breasts, teamwork and violence, they do their best to pull through. They don't shy away from blood and can get pretty absurd at times, but it's all in the name of perversion and action.

NicoNicoDesu NicoNicoDesu says...

"Cage of Eden" and "H.O.T.D-CUP" are manga centered around around the three s-words: Survival, Sexiness, and Sh*t hitting the fan.

In both series, a group of people get stuck trying to survive a rather cliche situation all while flipping off gravity. (And having token lesbian scenes.) The newer "Cage of Eden" isn't super-explicit, but it is filled with quite a bit of irritating ecchi. The infamous "Highschool of the _____" (fill in the blank with your favorite synonym for breasts) is more explicit and... probably targeted to a more adult audience... (I think I heard somewhere that the artist originally drew hentai.)

Enjoy one, enjoy both, I suppose.

Drifting Classroom

Drifting Classroom

On a day like any other day, Shou, his classmates and the entire elementary school were mysteriously transported to a barren wasteland filled with terror. There's no food or water, nothing in sight but an endless desert in all directions, and both the students and teachers are so terrified that they are rioting, murdering, and falling victim to their fears. With no idea of how they got there or how they'll survive, these students must work together and set forth into the unknown to discover the truth of their circumstances.

Drifting Classroom and Eden no Ori are two peas in a pod, differentiated only by the amount of ecchi in Eden no Ori, and the decades apart their release dates are. Both involve a class of students being thrust into a strange new world seemingly at random, slowly getting devoured or destroyed in some fashion. Horror and violence abound in both - fans of one would definitely like the other, though I really was not a fan of all the ecchi in Eden no Ori.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

On one hand, you have a group of young whippersnappers trying to survive in a desolate wasteland after the decline of humanity, wrought with monsters and danger. On the other hand, you have teens, adults and boobs trying to survive in a jungle wrought with monsters and danger. If it weren't for the boobs and adults, they'd be as twin-like as a jungle and barren wasteland can be.

Aside from those points, they're still quite similiar. Both tackle survival quite nicely and a decay in humanity and sanity are prevalent some of the events that transpire within the chapters. Both don't shy away from blood and while the crap that happens to both parties gets absurd at times (Mainly Cage of Eden), they maintain a good grip on suspense to keep the reader's attention.

KingArthur13th KingArthur13th says...

In both series, a group of people are transported to a distant future in which they are forced to fight for survival. They have to not only test their survival skills against the perils of nature but they must fend off against ferocious monsters as well as the evil of man. As the characters continue to move along they also attempt to find out what happened to them and attempt to return home, if possible.

Let's Lagoon

Let's Lagoon

Luckily, he soon discovers that one of his classmates, Chika, also is on the island. Together, the two catch fish, build a raft and try their best to survive and wait for help – not to mention try to remember how they came to be on the island.

TheMajor5 TheMajor5 says...

Cage of Eden and Let's Lagoon are similar because of the plot.  Kids get stranded on an island and have to survive.  Both the main characters, who are boys, are looked up to and relied on for survival.  Tensions start to flare when newcomers join the island or group and the drama starts.  Though Cage of Eden is a bit more brutal and heart racing and Let's Lagoon is slice of life, the question still remains, "Will they ever get off the island alive?"

sothis sothis says...

I'm not a huge fan of Eden no Ori, but both it and Let's Lagoon have a combination of survival and blatant (and frankly, irritating) ecchi. Eden is far more focused on people getting eaten while Lagoon is more of a realistic, quiet tale, but fans of one will likely enjoy the other.

These two are very similar on many levels. They are both survival manga that have adventure. They also have a very similar plot and supernaturalness to them. If you liked one, you will definitely like the other. 

Gantz

Gantz

Kei, a cynical and arrogant high school student, has minimal regard for others; so it's much to his surprise that when he's asked by his elementary school friend Kato to save a drunken bum laying on the subway tracks, he actually complies. However, no good deed goes unpunished, and they are swiftly decapitated by the oncoming train. Kei and Kato awaken in a nondescript room occupied by a black sphere and a variety of other people, and thus begins Gantz's game. In it, the players must face off against aliens in battles where death is inevitable and rewards are minimal. Unfortunately for them, this is just the beginning of their nightmare - at least, for those who manage to survive...

Gantz has far more of an interesting plot than Eden no Ori, but they both have a very similar feel. Survival is the name of the game as people struggle to stay alive in really messed up situations - gore, ecchi and other elements ensue.

JtkBasketball JtkBasketball says...

Gantz is more futuristic and a far more mature read, while Cage of Eden is more prehistoric and not as dark. Both deal with surviving and figuring out a big mystery. If you liked one, it would be worth your time to try to other. 

Jisatsutou

RinoaAeris RinoaAeris says...

What is the true survival? Is that hard to live in society? What is our purpouse in life? Just to wake up one day and find yourself far from the life you despised so much, fighting for surviving. This is the kind of situation the protagonist are fated to in these manga, where skill, nakama and the will to go forward is what matters the most.

 

JtkBasketball JtkBasketball says...

Both of these deal with surviving on unknown islands with no help from the outside world. Both have characters thrown onto the island with no way out. Cage of Eden is more for a lighter shounen read, while Suicide island is more mature and darker. Both are very captivating and keep you interested. If you like one, you will probably like the other.
