So I was right, it was nano.RIPE after all. Well, it wasn't as utterly horrible as the HI songs, but I would be glad if I never heard you again. The ED was actually good though. Moving on...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who got some SHAFT-vibes from this show, even the guy reminded me of some strange amalgam of Ararararagi/Meme.

The script could certainly use a little more work on it, but overall it was an interesting episode. Looking forward to the next! 4/5.

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..

Yeah in regards to your spoiler, that's one heck of a shit to have in your brain as a father figure.

I know better with manga power but still lame excuse of father to do the shit in your spoiler.

I had no idea that this was DEENs doing. I thought it was SHAFT.
Kudos, DEEN.

Great first episode. I thought Rea was getting a somewhat deeper voice, no idea why I thought that, though.

Now the question will be - what can the animation team achieve in so few episodes, particularly when the manga is still on-going?

Right now 27 chapters are out. If they cover 20, that would be great: the 20th chapter would be a great culmination moment. What is more there would be option for a continuation. However, on the offical web-site, there is no Darin in the cast. So it is hard to say, what Deen gonna do :|

Great Pre-air episode, my most awaited anime since reading the manga.

BTW Yumekichi can I request some GIF's of Rea-chan? specially when she blushes? :)

uh... I have to say that Rea was as pretty as in the manga. but I see no Darin, my favorite heroine in this OP, why?


My guess is that they will end the anime before Darleen's appearance.

Well the sudden Rea-chan severely injured and zombie transformation is totally out of place but I must say it is definitely a cliffhanger, especially to those non-manga readers.

Yeah, that's really a lame excuse for a father to be looking at her daughter's grownup figure. He's totally obsessed with her, well the reason was revealed in manga though but still I couldn't accept that.

Awww hell yeah, Sankarea's first episode and man did I fucking love it. Highly anticipating this Anime for months ever since I first found out about it around this time last year. Freaking love the manga so an Anime adaptation is what I wanted. Those close-up shots with Rea were so good, Rea's cute as and her voice. <3 Meru is also cute, damn HER voice is just... loli material :D Furuya's voice actually suits his character.

Seems like they started the episode differently from the manga but it was still great. Pacing was good, no rushing or awkwardness. Though, I would have liked Wanko appearing in front of Furuya and his friends during school. That was hilarious in the manga. xD

Well first episode of Sankarea, loved it heaps. 5/5
Fridays are awesome again.

I'm very impressed with the adaptation, I seriously have no complaints, animated and voiced Rea is even more adorable. I also like the OP and ED, the latter one adds a serious tone which is pretty damn right, Sankarea might be often funny but it has a lot of drama going on.
Easily my favorite anime of this season so far and will probably stay up there unless they screw Tasogare up or Hyouka sucks. If you would excuse me now, I have the urge to read Sankarea all over again.

Put Furuya in High School Of The Dead and see how long he lasts. Or would he create a immortal harem army?

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...

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.

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.
