Furuya's obsessed with zombies. He collects any figurines, watches any movie, and plays any game with the living dead, and is even only interested in zombie girls. When his cat dies, Furuya begins trying to raise it from the dead using an ancient book of the occult he bought from a shop. But what will happen when he sees the idol of a nearby all girl's school walking close to where he conducts his experiment, wishing to die and be reborn as a different person?

It's just not fair of you to keep coming up with fetishes to hook us poor unsuspecting fans over and over again with your adorable characters. You know it will work every time, so just stop abusing this power. Some of us still need to go outside and interact with normal people in a fashion that doesn't get us sent to the insane asylum.

Now you try to turn us into necrophiliacs? What did we ever do to you? Oh right the piracy, nevermind.

Anyway Sankarea is in a word, mindblowinglyawesome. See, I didn't use spaces so that still counts read more

Note: This is my first review and I have no writing experience, but I'm writing this due the lack of recent reviews. All reviews are up to chapter 8 instead and this one is up to 20. Anyway, please review my review by giving me advice.

This manga has all ingredients of a typical Shonen. Ecchi, comedy, action and the drama. The setting is quite awesome though. It's spread out nice in the first two chapters, but like others said: it drags a little afterwards. Up to chapter 8 that is. The setting changes afterward and a new character appears, which spices things up. The background read more

How many of you grew up with a hobby? With something you just in general, love/loved? Living in Hawai'i, I've grown up on a mix of Asian and American culture. A long time ago, I was introduced to anime by my brothers best friend. He taught us about the late, great, Toonami; with Rurouni Kenshin, Tenchi Muyo, Gundam Wing, and the ever popular Dragon Ball Z. As we grew older, he introduced us to Saturday night Adult Swim, and with it the gore and sex every puberty ridden boy needed; Inuyasha, Yuu Yuu Hakusho, Case Closed, Fullmetal Alchemist, Outlaw Star, and the life changer, FLCL. read more

Sometimes, reading a bit of horror is just what you need to spice up your life . There are quite a lot of scary scenes. but to me they are not scary anymore cause I watch way too much horror animes and manga.

I know that a ton of you guys out there are fans of romance manga and let me tell you, I am too:). So if you are one of us, then this manga is for you. I know, I know, I just said that this is a horror manga, but their love is so damm. sweet!!!!

Come on, after you read this, read more

Both series feature a strange kind of romance embedded in the supernatural.
Through its characters and narrative, both these serialisations explore concepts of living and dying. Sankarea explores life and death in a more in-depth manner; whereas Blood Lad only uses it to serve context for its story.
In both the hero is related to "death" and also the heroine dies and is revived. Also romance.
These two mangas deal with the relationship between the living and the undead. Sankarea is more in the shounen category and is told from the male's point of view whereas Zombie Romanticism is more of a seinen manga and it's told from the girl's perspective. If you liked one, you may like the other.

Both revolve around a special girl with a secret.
Both have perverted MCs in their own way.
Both have somewhat similar plot twists and the end is also similar.
Sankarea and Shion of the Dead have both in common that is both of them is a love story between human boy and zombie girl.
