My answer to the first two questions is School-Live!. It's not just a story about surviving the zombie apocalypse, it uses the zombies and the struggle for survival to comment on Japanese media's obsession with the high school years, and as a metaphor for growing up and having to join adult society. It's also the biggest positive surprise I've ever had from a premiere episode-- I got sick of zombie stories a long time ago, and the "cute girls doing cute things" genre has never really appealed to me, but the premiere blew me away. Another favorite of mine is Mikagura School Suite, a weird, fun little school battle story with a lesbian love triangle front and center (spoiler: none of them die).
