*To Catch a Predator music starts playing.* Looks like we got another one.

It seems like SOMEBODY wasn’t content to walk away with a warning and a list of similarly horny anime. You just had to come back for more high schoolers, didn’t you? You make me sick. SICK. “Oh no! I just like Highschool of the Dead for the plot! I swear!” Tell it to the judge, chief. I’ve been working in the Anime Special Victims Unit for nigh on twenty years, and I know exactly the reason why perverts like you watch shows like this. It sure ain’t because of “clever pacing” or “award winning dialogue,” that’s for sure.

What is Highschool of the Dead about?

Don’t play innocent with me. You know exactly what Highschool of the Dead is about. A creep like you probably sleeps with a body pillow versions of half of the characters. But I’ll humor you. It’ll only help me get all the facts in order for your upcoming court case. Highschool of the Dead is about a young man’s best efforts to survive the zombie apocalypse while accompanied by buxom female students who are impressive killing machines.

This reverse harem has to navigate their way through a zombified city in order to find safety, but you and I both know that’s not what this anime is really about. No, it’s REALLY just an excuse to watch some overly-jiggly animated characters defy every known law of physics with their well-endowed bodies.

Will there be a season 2?

From what my office’s investigation has dug up, I can confidently say that no new information about a season 2 of Highschool of the Dead has been released. Maybe Madhouse—the studio responsible for this felony—was so disgusted by themselves that they scrapped the project entirely. But that’s just pie in the sky. As long as people like you exist, there will always be a market for pervy anime.

If you want my advice, why don’t you try giving Madhouse titles like Trigun and Hunter x Hunter a shot? Expand your horizons. I know asking you to do something like that is probably a fool’s errand, but you can’t blame me for trying to keep you out of my department. Now get out of my office.

They really like anime. Like... REALLY like it. Like you know those annoying little kids that will only eat hotdogs and chicken fingers? They're like that... but with anime. It's starting to get sad.
