The dream of Seiji Yasaka, a ronin, is to become a doctor, something which he wants so badly to fulfill that he joins a hospital as a part-time corpse washer. He falls in love with Nurse Yuuki Midou, but Chigusa Tsuyusaki, the hospital's deputy director, wants him for her own. Everything goes well until suddenly he realizes that all of the nurses are in fact dead bodies—part of a project to bring them back to life—and then he finds out that he is also already one of the walking dead. With the walking dead, the body isn't a problem, but the mind on the other hand gets corrupted easily…

I'll start off by saying this anime is targeted toward a pretty niche audience. It contains a variety of fetishes including drugging, necrophilia, some enema play, bondage, rape, quite a bit of cum, guro, and a bit of inflation as well. While the show does touch on a number of these things, there is a focus on the necrophilia aspect which makes it a must see for those with that inclination. It's definitely at the forefront of its kind in that respect.

I felt that the animation here was pretty average or slightly above. I wish it could have been better, but at the same ...

Mixed Feelings
The story is one of the more disturbing things I've ever seen. It is pretty unique and interesting, it's the reason I wanted to watch this over other hentai. I think the story had a lot of potential, but they could have made so much more with it.

The art was decent. There's a lot of better looking hentai out there nowadays, but this still looks fine. It's creepy when it wants to be, and no animation seems to drag on for too long (in some older hentai they would keep animations looping for a while to fill time to stay within their budget). There are ...

Discovered this a couple days ago as a recommendation somewhere and decided to give it a watch. Simply terrible. For one, the story is confusing, and unconvincing. Sure, bodies are cleaned and treated for burial, or cremation, but not in the way this title would lead you to believe. Not every doctor has to undergo morgue training, either. The series, clearly targeting those with a more, macabre discretion, also fails. The art and animation is wildly inconsistent, making otherwise somber moments funny, and erotic ones flat. The main dude's junk, of particular note, frequently changes size and shape. Almost as if the budget was running ...
