Highschool of the Dead is one of those messed up anime series that makes you keep watching out of sheer tension; really, we just want to see who’s going to survive this apocalypse. Filled with your standard attractive girls, there’s a lot of gore and fan service that tends to entertain audiences. However, the show goes a little deeper by involving a lot of messed up plot twists and uncomfortable scenes that would make any viewer’s skin crawl.

If this isn’t your thing, it's understandable. But some people do find this kind of anime enjoyable. So, for those of you looking for the next creepy, or just straight up zombie-filled anime to watch, we’ve got you covered. From fan service to graphic scenes, we’ve found 13 anime series you should watch after you’ve finished High School of the Dead.

  • Issei Hyodo thought that Kuoh Academy was your average school, despite it formerly being only for young women. Normal as that might seem, there is something most regular humans don't know; most of the student body are either angels, fallen angels, or devils. Unknowingly being asked out by a fallen angel, Issei is killed and revived as a demon by a girl named Rias Gremory. Supernatural events happening in high school is one huge reason why you may see this show pop up in your recommendations after finishing Highschool of the Dead

    • Ayumu Aikawa was a regular boy who found himself in the wrong place and time. After being murdered by a serial killer on his way home, Ayumu is revived by a necromancer; Eucliwood Hellscythe. Now a zombie, he finds even more supernatural accidents occurring when he also steals a magical girl's uniform and gains her powers. Haruna, the magical girl he accidentally stole from, is desperate to have her powers back but needs him to continue fighting in her stead. While this anime is clearly more humorous than Highschool of the Dead, we guarantee it's worth your time if you're into zombie antics.
