High school of the dead was my (our) favorite series, after “I am a hero manga” so due to the unconfirmed extended hiatus of the manga i lost my hope for the anime to get another season, rumors were that the creator lost the interest in the series and now this news came as a real shock! My condolences and prayers to Satou Daisuke and his family. Rest in peace.
