Cage of Eden

Cage of Eden

Akira Sengoku and his class were traveling home from a field trip aboard Flight 357 when the plane mysteriously crashed, leaving them stranded on a hostile, prehistoric island. In this place, extinct and colossal animals run wild, quickly devouring many of the survivors and leaving the rest to fight for their lives. Alongside his childhood friend Rion and other classmates, Akira will struggle to survive in this impossible place against all odds.

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

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

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

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

"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.

High School DxD

High School DxD

All the perverted Issei wants is to squeeze bountiful boobs all day long, so he's thrilled to join Kuou Academy, a once all-female high school filled with gorgeous girls. But little did the boy know that after finally getting a girlfriend, she'd turn out to be a fallen angel who'd drive a lance through his heart, killing him on the spot! Luckily, the beautiful and busty Rias, his popular classmate who's actually a demon, revives him under one condition: that he'll become her servant. Now, Issei finds himself in the middle of a fierce chess game between demons, fallen angels and exorcists, and the fates of his new friends lie in the balance!

Mahou Shoujo of the End

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

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.

Violence, blood and in HotD's case, boobs, as humanity falls victim to the zombie apocalypse. Apocalypse contains a twist to the premise but it doesn't stray from it's horror sub-genre. HotD, as stated before, is filled with boobs and promotes ecchi before it's bloody violence but it too, doesn't stray far. They both portray a group of young adults in their struggle for survival as the world changes around them, and adapting to revelations that come their way.

Attack on Titan

Attack on Titan

Over a century ago, mankind was devoured by giant beings of unknown intelligence and origin known as Titans – creatures that eat humans alive indiscriminately and for no apparent reason. The remaining population has managed to survive the last hundred years only by building a multi-walled city capable of keeping the Titans at bay, training military recruits to patrol the perimeter and gather intelligence about their mysterious foe. Eren and Mikasa have lived a relatively peaceful life behind the city's walls, but when a massive Titan appears, smashing the outer barrier and unleashing a wave of terror, their lives are brutally changed forever...

These two have something in common: fighting crude creatures for their own lives -- survival. SnK fights Titans(Giants) and HotD fights Zombies. Well, HotD leans more on fanservice but still..
