DAMN IT this episode was awesome! i absolutely loved the art and the music. Rea looked just too beautiful >< Loved the protagonist too; his designs seem so unique and so is his personality!

5/5

uhh.. its good, but the sudden zombie transformation was definitely ehhh, so.. did she get into an accident or something, cause the first episode is leaving me hanging.. NOT COOL, how they ended the episode was a downer for me but i do like the story and the characters.. but this is really forcing me to watch episode 2, i don't have the feeling of wanting to see it, but the feeling that i have to see it. not yet hooked, i feel like i'm getting baited, hopefully i'll actually want to watch the whole series by the end of the next episode..
It's a very good series so far even though she

Hmm... I smelled SHAFT. Got surprised it's not don by them xD.

5/5

I'm definitely interested so far. Hopefully this series will be longer than 12 episodes.

Well the zombie in this series is much more like those in Shikabane Hime... without the seals...

In other words, they are somewhat closer to the "came back wrong" trope...

Yeah, this is good stuff. Animation may not be the best but still good for a Deen series.

Not a fan of Furuya's design -- I suppose his eyes suit him well, but I can't stand to look at his cat-ear hair.

All in all not a bad episode.

This was a good episode and wasn't rushed. The op was fun to listen to and there's a cute loli kuudere and other likable characters. I hope the kitty comes back to life though.

Wow, it feels like a SHAFT anime, but it is not shit like a SHAFT anime. I like this a LOT. Amazing first episode. I have a good feeling I will love this series from start to finish.

Better than I expected! I bet Baabu gets resurrected.

I love his hair; cat ears!

So far, the most interesting anime I've watched this season.

The only thing that bothers me on this is that Sanka has flushed cheeks almost all the time, is it really necessary? Besides that, looks like it'll be a good adaptation.

What?!

I'm very much impressed by this first episode. A bit slow but nonetheless good introduction of all the characters. And my god, Rea's seiyuu is awesome for a newbie.
Wow. Definitely blew my expectations even though this only has limited materials. Hope this kind of quality persists for each episode.

FYI SHAFT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>DEEN

I Havent watched a deen anime since the rape that was umineko.But Sankarea looks good as an adaption both in story and animation.Since their way of making anime sucks they decided to use Shaft's in order to sell...sounds like a good plan

This was a nice ep. Rea kinda looks like Sawako from Kimi ni Todoke. AKA, she's KAWAIIIIIIIII~~~ :D

5/5 first ep. Can't wait to see more! Will definitely read the manga after the series is done.

Out of all the spring debuts I've seen so far, this one is definitely the best! Looks very unique and nice, and I'm already a fan of Furuya.

And it definitely felt like SHAFT, I was confused when I figured out it's not made by them.

FYI then.
The director is involved in some SHAFT animes and did some storyboards directed episodes.
Specific shows would be Arakawa under the Bridge, Denpa Onna, Hidamari and Madoka.
Here's his profile on ANN. He's not yet on MAL though.

Thanks! Was too lazy to go back in the ep to find out her name. Didn't realize it was already there lol.

Heh so that's why she sounds so familiar. It's kaya from bakuman!

Haha, I thought he was a yokai at first with cat ears, but its just his hair.

The ending did seem like a rush and I don't know when they'll explain how it happened.

I liked it! Picking this up even though I hadn't a clue what it was at first.

Good first episode; stayed true to the first chapter of the manga; there were some original scenes like Babu's death and such; but it was good, the animation was great and i like how they stayed true to the characters because as weird as the MC is, its important for future development. It seems like a lot of the anime will be original scenes tho since from the preview alone there were few that were in the manga; like it seems they are gonna show even if only a little bit how the freak dad took the photos. Anyway looking forward to the rest; anyone who read the manga have any guesses on how many chapters do you think will be covered?

Very strange indeed!
I never thought I'd ever see a zombie fetish, but hey! Rule 34 (though not exactly rule 34, but you get the jist of it)

As for the ending I liked it, keeps me curious about what's to come!

Would be awesome if they covered it up to the point

but I guess that's too far and I don't remember quite well what happened in which order, will re-read it over the weekend and guess again.

I have to say, this is a perfect way to start off an anime-adaptation. I loved the Manga and it's designs, and this first episode covers the fist chapter nicely.

His little sister is so moe~ Love her. Sanka is a bit too innocent, but she was the exact same in the manga, so no complaints there. I love the main lead even more now, I didn't think I could like him even more after the manga.

Main point to be made here:

FINALLY a great love/comedy anime adaptation from a manga.

After I saw the Boku ha Tomodachi anime, I was beginning to think they were getting worse, thank god Sankarea came along.

Love the colors and animation - the effects remind me of Bake/Nise monogatari, but maybe better? (Lights and bloom + Dat sky scene) Overall, a high 7/10 from me - will go higher if they keep it going at this quality.

Is it a 12 episode series or 25?

Well, if Another is anything to go by, I'd say they'll probably cover around 18-20 chapters since the Another manga also had 40+ pages per chapter but was only 12 eps ( Which I assume Sankarea will also be ). I havn't read the Sankarea manga yet but I did look at a few chapters just to see how long it was per chapter.

Who knows, maybe they'll try and add decent filler and make it 1 chapter per ep just incase they make a second season.

Hope so, because it gets better as it goes along, shows more a serious tone as well which is something you might not expect from this episode or the first few chapters; i just hope they don't do a bunch of filler.

WTF did I just watch... Everything seemed great, but ending? She is a zombie? Didn't see that coming...

Anyway I loved it, it has everything I love... I really liked character design. Finally characters look like they are Japanese, or is it just me?

Anyway 5/5

That was pretty good actually.

Poor Babu, we only saw one scene of him alive. I wonder if he'll end up being resurrected in the end. Damn, his cousin is pretty sexy. Sanka Rea is a cutie too, shame she didn't look that appealing in the last scene though. xD

Instantly recognized the OP performance too, since it's the same as Hanasaku Iroha's. Kimiko from nano.RIPE has such a distinct voice.
