After being brutally murdered along with her family, Makina Hoshimura turns into a Shikabane Hime, a living corpse contracted to the Kougon Cult, in order to exert revenge on the mysterious undead organization responsible for her death. She is assisted in this task by Keisei Tagami, her contracted priest and former friend.

Story - 8/10
Ok. This series started on the "monster-of-the-week" formula, so it may be very misleading. Even the sypnosis that a Shikabane Hime must kill 108 corpses to go to Heaven is misleading. The real plot and story has really nothing to do with it. The truth is, this series does provide a reasonable and interesting plot development in the SECOND half of the season only. And the last four episodes or so does have enough plot to build up decent cliffhangers that forced me to watch the raws and chinese subs (instead of waiting for the english subs because of my impatience).

Just gonna say this straight off the bat - a VERY average show, despite the interesting concept. If you've just gone sifted through 4 or 5 average shows because you thought you'd find them interesting, hold off watching this or you will just bore yourself. Anyways, onto the review!

I got into this show because I had zombies on my mind (probably because I've been looking at zombie video games/mmos) and decided to scout out some zombie anime. I stumbled across this.

Recommendations

Both involve protagonists that are undead and slay other undead in order to liberate themselves from their undeath.
Similar storyline about the hunting of evil spirits and corpses that brings about death and decay to the land.

The female lead in Shikabane is very similar to Yomi in Ga-Rei Zero, both in personality and skill.
