Hi there. The name's Brad, and this'll be my first review here on MAL. Decided to pick Sankarea for my first review because I finished it just the other day, and it's still fresh in my mind. Keep in mind that I'm not a huge fan of using scales from 1 to 10 when giving my opinion on things, but it gets the point across without too much fuss. I will try my best to keep my reviews on the site spoiler free. Now without further ado, let's start this.

Story: 7/10
The premise of Sankarea is original, that much is certain. All zombies aside though, it's read more

It pains me a lot to give this series a 7. In fact, I really want to give it a 9 or 10 for this review. However, a few things stop it from being higher, actually only two things really. The first thing is simple. It never keeps the amazement factor rolling, the first three episodes were fantastic, but it slow goes to great, then good, then just plain OK. The second, and in my opinion much more important thing is that it stop just when things get interesting. It force me to read the manga from which this is adapted from and actually read more

Recommendations

Both of these Anime are dark Gothic revolving around the unusual romance a guy has with... a girl out of horror who just wants to be... normal... and not a monster.
MC's both deal with the supernatural quite well and it makes sense considering their outsider status.

The main females are both beautiful and strange, giving the romance plots similar feels despite the stories and themes of the shows being quite different.

Both shows have ecchi elements but in a more sexy and mature way (esp in Monogatari's case) than most anime can manage to pull off.
