All Kii Kogami wants is to have a normal, boring life. But when a horde of homicidal magical girls descends and kills almost all of his classmates, turning them into undead monsters, Kii's dreams vanish in a wave of gore and chaos. Alongside other survivors like the busty Yoruka, childhood friend Tsukune and would-be medical student Ren, can Kii manage to escape a horrifying death one day at a time, while discovering the truth about this invading force?
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...
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.
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.
