HIGHSCHOOL OF THE DEAD – OVA
「Drifters of the DEAD」
If you’re reading this, you have failed the test. There were two reasons I initially had to blog this. One was because Divine asked me to, and two was because I blogged HOTD in the past, so I figured hey, this could be a little nostalgic, despite finding the series mediocre. Then I watched the sixteen minute OVA. Nostalgia was instantly gone, so now my personal reason for posting this became the same reason why this OVA was made. To give you raging hard-ons (and garner an embarrassingly high amount of views). So what was the test for? To see if you like tits and ass more than your hatred for this series. Of course, if you’re a hypocrite, you’d come in here anyways. Or you didn’t watch the series, and came in for obvious reasons. Or you actually like the series and all that encompasses it. You’re the only ones that pass with flying colors, because nothing can affect the impervious opinion of “I like this.”
Being bundled with the 7th volume of the manga, it’s obviously something made to boost sales, to have some tiny connection with the actual series, and to let you see your “favorite” characters spend an afternoon pretending they were in porn (which is also for boosting sales). I’m surprised they even cared to uphold the different “personalities” each character had, however transparent. Really, I’m just shocked how far they went with the whole thing. Suddenly we’re using hentai trade secrets with substances that leave women helplessly gasping for sex, which of course, naturally leads to lesbians (cue rolling eyes). Then a more explicitly implied sexual encounter with Saeko because we obviously didn’t have enough in the series. Throw in some breast groping that seemed to have more budget shoved into it than the entire episode and call it a day. Also, implying Saya has some mommy complex and likes to compare breast sizes with said mom was slightly disturbing. And Takashi somehow holding off several female zombies while unconscious? Damn, they jumped the shark here too. Standard fare for ecchi OVA’s really.
But hey, when you don’t really care for the series, what’s to get mad at? Ya’ll can thank Madhouse for providing this “service” because porn is never an oversaturated industry, and for giving viewers hope for a second season (sigh).
