Zombie ADV...Does Zombies

I just received word from Sentai Film Works that the street date for High School of the Dead is June 28th.

Nothing gratuitous here. I'm sure.
Based on a successful manga, this thriller follows of a group of high school students and faculty dealing with a zombie apocalypse. It is directed by Tetsuro Araki who did DEATH NOTE and Black Lagoon, which means there is the potential for much win here.

It's heartening to see that Sentai is able to land a property as widely anticipated as this. It would seem to bode well for them

This show might be something of a bellwether on the market, which has been troubled of late. It certainly has wide name recognition, and, I am told, it has pretty much every base covered except 'kawaii'. ( As I understand it, action, cheesecake, horror, drama, zombies, and cheesecake). It's going to be interesting to see how it does. I'm getting a copy. Not just because I'm the sort of awful person that has been looking forward to this, but because I think that it may be quite important that this title succeed.

1 Eh. I knew a bunch of people who were good at what they did; almost none of them are left. I don't figure that what's left is worth growing back, to be honest.

2 Back in the day, I celebrated whenever a new ADV tape came in, because that meant I'd get to watch the trailers.  The old ADV trailers were awesome.

I miss those simple, carefree days, of dial-up internet and 64MB of RAM.  Wait, no I don't!

3 I've gotta say that HSOTD may very well have been my favorite show that ended in 2010... I'll be getting it, for sure.
