In that scenario, the world will be turned inkhổng lồ ashes và all around there will be only Zombies và a few human survivors in the safe zone.

Surrounded by zombies, how long will they be able to lớn survive? The first season of the anime left us on a cliffhanger.

We didn"t get lớn know what would happen in the over. We didn"t get to lớn know whether they found a solution or not.

The battle can"t go on forever. It has lớn over someday or the other. We need to lớn know what happens at the kết thúc of it all.

Everything we know about Highschool of the Dead Season 2

Highschool of the Dead is an anime adaptation of a manga of the same name.

In nhật bản, it is also known as Apocalyptic Academy: Highschool of the Dead. The manga was written by Daisuke Sakhổng lồ, who died in the year 2017, leaving the manga unfinished.

Therefore, the storyline of the anime remains unfinished as well. Season 1 of the anime aired in the year 2010 and was a commercial hit.

Yet the producers didn"t take it up for another Season. The reason is unknown & most probably will remain unknown.

Now, with the death of the mangaka, another sequel seems highly unlikely. We won"t ever get lớn know what the original writer had in mind for the ending of the anime.

To get another sequel, we need another writer lớn give us an engaging storyline as good as the original one.


Official Announcements và Release DateofHighschool of the Dead Season 2

2010 was the year in which the first season of Highschool of the Dead was released.

It has been over 10 years now. There has been no official announcement forthe renewal of the series.

I know that"s bad news for the fans who have been waiting for years without an over.

But honestly, we can"t change the truth, can we? The producers of the anime have given us no hint to hope for Season 2.

Moreover, even the writer of the series is dead. The series did not get a sequel for 7 years while he was alive sầu.

Do you think there is much hope after his demise? I"m afraid no one can tell you that.

Apparently, the original producers of the anime aren"t interested in producing a sequel. God knows why?

The series was a commercial blockbuster. Here comes the surprise... A US-based Anime Network is ready khổng lồ take up the project for Season 2 of the anime Highschool of the Dead.

Although we bởi not have sầu the answers lớn your who, when, how questions because it"s not yet known to the public.

I know how badly you all want a Season 2 lớn happen.

Therefore, I will take you through a journey of analyzing all the facts which are important to consider while deciding for another season!

Co-author Shoji said that no one can replace Sakhổng lồ & it pains hyên lớn draw & continue the story so he decided lớn not proceed.

The first season of anime covers volumes 1 khổng lồ 4 of the manga so, there are just 3 volumes left.

To produce the next season, we need at least one more volume but the writers of the crossover manga"Shōji Sato Artworks: Highschool of the Dead & Triage X – Lightning Pop" agreed khổng lồ stop the manga.

Therefore, nothing can be said about the availability of the source material as of now.

As I"ve sầu said earlier, a US-based Anime Network is willing khổng lồ produce a second season.

But who will write the story? They"ll have sầu khổng lồ hire another creator to bởi vì the job.

Although it is highly unlikely that sometoàn thân else would be able to do justice lớn the storyline.

Let"s dig deeper and see if the fans still want it, even after 10 years of waiting?

But things bởi vì not work according lớn their plans. Another insane survivor opens the emergency door & lets "them" get into lớn the mall.

This sudden turn will change things và they will get stuchồng to rescue the insane survivor.

A disclaimer for you all. We presently bởi vì not have sầu much source material which will provide us with the exact plot.

All we are trying to lớn vị is provide you with a rough sketch of the expected plot of Season 2, based on the little material available, & our assumptions.

In Season 2 of Highschool of the Dead, we expect to see a solution is found by the group to lớn root this problem out permanently.

Myanimemenu has given the series a rating of 7.1 out of 10. TV.com has given a rating of 8.6 out of 10.

So, the anime has got moderately good ratings from different platforms. As for the Review, many criticized it.

Highschool of the Dead Manga, DVD/Blu-ray Sales

This is the most important factor while deciding for another season. As I have sầu told you all earlier in my other articles, producing anime, is a very expensive sầu venture.

Therefore, if the manga or Season 1 hasn"t been a commercial hit, hoping for Season 2 is useless.

Manga Sales

The manga, on which the anime was based, was commercially successful. In the year 2010, volume 6 of the manga Highschool of the Dead was #5 on the Oribé best-selling charts. Total sales were 135,754 copies. Volume 7 of the manga sold a total of 206,532 copies

That"s indeed a big deal. So this might convince the US-based Anime Network to lớn find a suitable writer & continue the series.

Blu-ray/DVD Sales

Due to digitization, Blu-ray disc sales have sầu been going down. People nowadays prefer to stream it online from platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu etcetera.

In this digital world, is there anybody who would lượt thích to get a Blu-ray disc?

I highly doubt it. And with the rise in online streaming platforms, we no more get to know about the sales và profit margin of a particular anime.

Since season 1 was released a while ago, we did find something. Total Blu-ray sales stood at 4,562 copies while DVD sales were 2,250 copies in nhật bản.

It"s a good number.

Popular Highschool of the Dead Characters

Since this series is based on high school narrative sầu, most of our characters are students. The series has many important characters but we will be looking ata few selected from them.

Saeko Busujima


Saeko is one of the main protagonists of the anime Highschool of the Dead Season 1.

We will meet her again in the second season for sure. From the beginning, till the kết thúc, we can see how calm và composed Saeko is.

An athletic fighter, Saeko is very good at kenbởi vì. She has been kind và generous towards the people she has worked with.

Her kindness and exceptional fighting skills are the reason she survived all the hardships và attacks by "them".

Saeko has xanh eyes, purple hair và is too long for a Japanese girl. She is the second oldest member of her high school team, and therefore she treats her teammates as if she is their older sister.

Shizuka Marikawa


The oldest và the most responsible member of the team is Shizuka Marikawa. She is also one of the protagonists of the anime Highschool of the Dead Season 1.

Shizuka is a nurse at Fujingươi High School. She is the only adult in the group, and yet is the one who is emotionally fragile.

Her life changes upside down after the "Outbreak" of Zombies in Japan và other parts of the world.

Looking after everyone"s health is her responsibility và she fulfilled it very well. When drunk, Shizuka"s mind turns into a very sexually oriented one.

Whatever people say or do during this phase is interpreted sexually by her. We will meet Shizuka in Season 2 as an important character.

Takashi Komuro


The main protagonist of the anime, Takashi is a second-year student of Fujingươi Academy in the anime.

Takashi is the founder và leader of the main group of survivors. He has strong feelings for his childhood frikết thúc Rei Miyamokhổng lồ, as well as his team member Saeko Busujima.

Complicated isn"t it? Feelings are most complicated, but it"s not the same.

People vì not fall for two ladies at the same time very often unless you are interested in a time pass and playboy kind of thing.

Assuming that Takashi isn"t a guy of that type, we will settle with the fact that he isn"t sure about his feelings.

A confused soul, Takashi is trying to figure out who is the one he has fallen for!

Takashi will resume his role as one of the most important characters of the anime.

Why vị we want a Season 2 of the anime Highschool of the Dead?

Do we really need khổng lồ answer this question? This is what seems silly to me, but I will vì it anyway to lớn once again put our points together, clearly.

In the Season 1 of the anime, we didn"t get a proper ending to the story.

The survivors fight, but will this fight go on forever? Moreover, they are very few in number.

How long will they be able to st& their ground? If they don"t get a solution to lớn kết thúc this "outbreak" of "them", there wouldn"t be one human being on planet Earth.

Only Zombies will walk the Earth và that doesn"t sound very pleasing to lớn our human ears, does it?

We want to see them hunt for a proper solution, and win the war. We want lớn see the fate of our Earth in an otherwise scenario.

A proper ending is what we want. A proper ending is what we dem&. Fulfill it, or we will continue poking you forever!

Ending of Highschool of the Dead Season 1

The ending of Season 1 has received mixed review from the viewers.

Some loved it and wanted it to be continued, while some were sure it was messed up and wanted it khổng lồ be continued as well.

You see, everyone wants another Season of this anime. Personally, I didn"t like the ending.

It was pretty weird. The way they all smiled before starting a massacre was particularly odd.

I mean, I agree that the characters are brave sầu people, but alas, they are "people" or "humans", fighting "Zombies".

It is a war between the living and the dead, so you cannot, just cannot give that meaningless smile.

Anytoàn thân amongst you all seen trò chơi of Thrones? If yes, you most probably rethành viên the Great War between the Dead và the Living right?

The Dead never tire, they vì chưng not feel, they vì not fear, but the living do!

That"s the difference. Having feelings, tiring, và fear, is a privilege in normal life, but a weak point while battling with "them".

That"s the reason I didn"t like that smile. It just spoiled my mood honestly.

Conclusion

With this, we come to an end to lớn today"s discussion. It"s been more than 10 years since the first season, it"s highly unlikely for the anime to get renewed.

With the death of mangaka, the development of source material is put on hold so enough nội dung is not available for a whole new season.

Let"s hope some network may see its potential and shows a willingness khổng lồ take it.
