High School of the Dead: Drifters of the Dead OVA – REGION LOCKED

High School of the Dead: Drifters of the Dead OVA

Region: A (Confirmed NOT Playable in the UK)
Boxart states Region A Only

Price: $7.99 / £4.82 (Excluding postage)

Episodes: 1 OVA Episode

Plot: When an unplanned stop on a deserted island gives Takashi, Saeko and the rest of the ragged band of survivors a chance to expose themselves to something other than zombie bites for a change, they’re more than ready to take a break and let their hair down. Discovering the remnants of an old beach store, the entire group strips to swimsuits and sets out to make the uninhabited island inhabitable, but they’re unaware that this seeming paradise is actually just the dead calm before the storm.

Because sometimes the recently deceased aren’t the only problems that can lie buried in the sand, and as the swimwear comes off and the inhibitions come down, a kink in the island’s food chain sets a truly shocking series of events into motion! You won’t believe what comes out next, but suffice it to say that the deserted island may not be so deserted after all!

It’s an extra special H.O.T.D. that’s even hotter than usual as the naked and the dead come together like never before in HIGH SCHOOL OF THE DEAD – DRIFTERS OF THE DEAD!


Even though the disc is class Region locked you can still watch the episode (and the bonus content included on the disc) by using the infamous Title Search Method. By pressing the “go to” option on your Blu-ray device (Player, Console or PC Software) and choosing “title 5” you can watch the episode, alternatively titles 6 to 10 are the extra content.

This title search method is compatible with most devices and nearly all of Sentai Filmworks discs, usually I wouldn’t recommend this option (as you loose full functionality of the disc) but seeing as only 1 episode is included on the disc it’s not such a big deal.

Manga Entertainment UK have also released this episode as a single DVD disc and can be purchased individually (from Expo’s or United Publications) or alternatively comes bundled with the Drifters of the Dead edition.
