Blood+ and Tokko have main characters that are thrust out of their daily lives into a whole new type of world. Both have to live up to their own potential and change their own perspective of how to overcome the challenges that face them and the enemies they encounter.
In a land overrun by yoma - monsters that feed upon human innards and take on the appearance and memories of their victims - humans are little more than cattle awaiting slaughter. The only opposition to the yoma is The Organization, a group led by a council of mysterious men who send out their all-female warriors (known as claymores) to do their bidding. However, The Organization is not charitable; a town must pay an exorbitant fee for their services. Likewise, many of the claymores care little for those who they protect. Clare, the lowest ranked claymore, lives only so that she may one day avenge her mentor.
The characters Tokko and Claymore both take into account an awareness of the world around them and try to fit into it even though they have some special powers that do not always let them adapt. There are tons of fights scenes in each with plenty of gore to keep readers entertained.
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...
Tokko and High School of the Dead are filled with violence, gore, and blood. The horror experienced in each of these series involves a new element while drawing in some fabulous fanservice.
