A deadly new disease is ravaging the world, turning the populace into mindless zombies, and the number of infected is skyrocketing by the second. As their fellow classmates and teachers succumb to the infection around them, a small group of students at Fujimi High School are fighting for their lives after surviving the initial outbreak. It is up to Takashi Komuro to unite the group of weary survivors and try to escape the horrors that surround them. In this new world of the living dead...will they escape?...
For fans who enjoy action anime, a name that they would do well to acquaint themselves with is studio Madhouse. When their name is behind the production, it gives assurance that the result will be of a good if not great standard. They have a history of creating high tension epics with cinematic splendour. In Madhouse productions, cityscapes unfold with exquisite detail, which is irrefutably an asset to the visual storytelling of zombie apocalypse and the destruction of urban life and society.
