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 Japan, it is also known as Apocalyptic Academy: Highschool of the Dead. The manga was written by Daisuke Sato, 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 & was a commercial hit.

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

Now, with the death of the mangaka, another sequel seems highly unlikely. We won"t ever get to 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 and 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 end.

But honestly, we can"t change the truth, can we? The producers of the anime have given us no hint lớn 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.

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 to take up the project for Season 2 of the anime Highschool of the Dead.

Although we do not have the answers khổng lồ your who, when, how questions because it"s not yet known to the public.

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

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

Source Material Information for Highschool of the Dead Season 2

The manga on which the series is based is incomplete due lớn the death of the mangaka in 2017.

Daisuke Satō, the author of the manga was in poor health for a long time. Due khổng lồ this manga production was halted between 2008 khổng lồ 2010. After 2011 only one chapter was added khổng lồ the manga.

Co-author Shoji said that no one can replace Sato & it pains him to draw and continue the story so he decided lớn not proceed.

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

VolumesEnglish Release Date
Volume 1January 25, 2011

Volume 4October 25, 2011
Volume 5January 24, 2012
Volume 6April 24, 2012
Volume 7July 24, 2012

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 to lớn stop the manga.

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

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

But who will write the story? They"ll have lớn hire another creator to bởi the job.

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

Yet there"s no sin in hoping right? After all, the world runs on hopes và dreams!!!

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

Expected Plot ofHighschool of the Dead Season 2

Season 1 of Highschool of the Dead has not covered 13 chapters of the manga.

Therefore, we can get some idea about the plot of Season 2. In Season 2 we will see Takashi"s group deciding khổng lồ leave the mall.

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

This sudden turn will change things and they will get stuck to rescue the insane survivor.

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

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

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

The war can"t go on forever, right? There has to be an end to it.

Who will win the final battle? The Dead, or the living?

It has been quite fluctuating.But the good news is, it was never very low.

Searches have been in the range of 25-75% so, it"s a positive sign from google trends.

We need lớn look at other factors khổng lồ know if we should expect season 2 or not.


Does the anime have a good social truyền thông media presence? vì chưng they have an official Twitter account?

Myanimelist 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 told you all earlier in my other articles, producing anime, is a very expensive 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 Oricon 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 find a suitable writer and continue the series.

Blu-ray/DVD Sales

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

In this digital world, is there anybody who would like 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 & 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 Japan.

It"s a good number.

Popular Highschool of the Dead Characters

Since this series is based on high school narrative, 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 end, we can see how calm & composed Saeko is.

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

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

Saeko has blue eyes, purple hair and 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 & 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 Fujimi High School. She is the only adult in the group, & yet is the one who is emotionally fragile.

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

Looking after everyone"s health is her responsibility and 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 Fujimi Academy in the anime.

Takashi is the founder and leader of the main group of survivors. He has strong feelings for his childhood friend Rei Miyamoto, as well as his team thành viên Saeko Busujima.

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

People bởi not fall for two ladies at the same time very often unless you are interested in a time pass & 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 khổng lồ 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 do we want a Season 2 of the anime Highschool of the Dead?

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

In the Season 1 of the anime, we didn"t get a proper ending khổng lồ 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 lớn stand their ground? If they don"t get a solution to end this "outbreak" of "them", there wouldn"t be one human being on planet Earth.

Only Zombies will walk the Earth & that doesn"t sound very pleasing khổng lồ our human ears, does it?

We want to lớn see them hunt for a proper solution, & 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 demand. 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 & wanted it to be continued, while some were sure it was messed up và 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 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.

Anybody amongst you all seen trò chơi of Thrones? If yes, you most probably remember the Great War between the Dead & the Living right?

The Dead never tire, they vì 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.


With this, we come to an kết thúc to 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 content is not available for a whole new season.
