High School of the Dead has only just started airing in Japan today, but Sentai Filmworks has wasted no time announcing their intention to bring the series to North America. The anime, which centers around a group of students trapped in a school full of zombies, is based on the manga by Daisuke Sato. The DVDs will have both English and Japanese voice options, but no release timeline was given.
