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.

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

These are both gore heavy apocalyptic zombie stories. The characters and plots are both pretty forgettable but if you want a lot of gore with a large dollop of fanservice then both these titles should satisfy that itch.

These manga are both unintentional comedy gold when they do something with the plot. Mahou Shoujo of the End will probably have you face palming harder with every poorly thought out twist. High School of the Dead isn't quite as stupid and is a bit more self aware about how silly and superfluous its story is. However, both of these "horror" manga are more likely to make you laugh than give you chills. 

Thrawn Thrawn says...

End of the world scenarios, where the world goes to the zombie dogs (Or magical mass murdering psycho girls for Mahou Shoujo). The parties: a bunch of teenage whippersnappers, some adults and at least one ginormously breasted chick. They all struggle to survive, committing murders of their own while people die around them. Things escalate, the gore gets splattered, the body count rises as things get worse and worse and fanservice ensues. The ecchi and violence are suitable for fans of each and while both aren't the most intelligent of survival manga, they are quite fun to read.

Let's Lagoon

Highschool of the Dead is based around zombies and people tend to get killed, while Let's Lagoon is more of a quiet tale of life on an island. What do they have in common? A combination of survival and ecchi, without an excessively harrowing survival tone like other series out there.

Bio Meat

Bio Meat

In the not so distant future, the overpopulation and overfilling of landfills has led Japanese bioengineers to create Bio Meat, known simply as B-M, that eat trash, produce more of themselves, and can be killed for food. But when an earthquake frees some B-M from their containment center, the situation rapidly spirals out of control. With B-M eating everyone in sight, four middle school students flee the gruesome carnage found in their classroom and search for their parents and safety. Can brash Maaya, quiet Kanomiya, intelligent and cold Shingo, and always-eating Banba survive, let alone anyone?

If you liked the weak survival horror aspects of Highschool of the Dead, check out the far superior Bio Meat. Both have an equally as fragmented flow but Bio Meat is just way better on all levels.
