Canceled Too Soon #196 | High School of the Dead (2010)

ANIME MONTH continues with a series about teenagers fighting off the zombie apocalypse using all the ultra-violence at their disposal, and a heck of a lot of fan service!   

Was HIGH SCHOOL OF THE DEAD nothing but mindless sex and violence, or is it a clever meta-commentary about western storytelling? And was it... CANCELED TOO SOON?  

William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are joined by author/illustrator M. Lopes da Silva for a scintillating conversation about the anime medium, the zombie apocalypse genre and more! 

Follow M. Lopes da Silva on Twitter at @_MLopesdaSilva and on Instagram at @AuthorMLopesdaSilva, and be sure to check out her upcoming queer, feminist, pro-sex work, vigilante vs. slasher novel HOOKER when it comes out in October!

Give it a listen!
