The story focuses on a group of students that faced with the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. A deadly pandemic is struck Japan. As a result, hordes of infected people filled the streets. The virus turns people into zombies. This disastrous event is called the "Outbreak." The group consisting of high school students and a school nurse is attempting to get through the crowd of walking dead that recently were humans. The only way to survive is to reach an elementary school that presumably locates in a safe area.

On the way, the students are faced with numerous challenges as they must deal with not only walking dead but also with humans who change their usual behavior being in such an unexpected situation. Some of them become even more dangerous than the zombies, given the fact that they go beyond the boundaries of moral. At first, a group encounters a corrupt teacher and his students. Afterwards, the students explore their homes in an attempt to find survivors.

As a result, they discover a little girl and a dog. Subsequently, they navigate through a mall and a police station, and finally, they manage to get to the elementary school, where they want to find a shelter. Their adventures are escorted by the hordes of walking dead attempting to attack the students. Therefore, they must fight in order to survive.

Highschool of the Dead is being canceled on AT-X and thereby will not return for a next season. Unfortunately, this is the official data.
