Chihiro Furuya possesses a strange obsession for the undead. Most remarkably, he is only romantically interested in female zombies. Due to the recent accidental death of his pet cat Baabu, Chihiro's craze is accentuated, and he decides to brew an elixir of reanimation.
However, Chihiro fails to find the correct combination of ingredients to produce the solution, causing him to give up and opt to bury Baabu instead. But before he can, Chihiro becomes acquainted with the wealthy and alluring Rea Sanka, who encourages him to continue trying. And so, upon mixing the poisonous hydrangea flower with his concoction, Chihiro successfully creates the elixir. Not realizing that he succeeded, Rea attempts to put an end to her miserable and restrained life by drinking the elixir she thought would poison her. But after actually dying in a fatal accident, the elixir shows its effect, and Rea is resurrected as a zombie.
Now liberated from her oppressive life, Rea moves in with Chihiro, who will now have to utilize his knowledge of the undead to care for the adolescent female zombie.

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, how could you not give it 10? I you may think that y
the ending sucks cause its not the typical shoujo manga ending when the couple kiss and happy ending. But put yourself in the girl's shoe! If you think about it, it might be the most logical ending. The plot is really well thought out and things happen for a reason, not like the barbie movies where everything happens because of magic( though I like it cause I like beautiful girls.)
I thought about this for a long time, ( please don't get offended ) and I thought that if you view at it separately, the eyes, the nose, the face shape... they are actually not that beautiful and was really simple. Somehow the artist still manage to make the characters beautiful!! I am definite giving it a ten.
I fell like the characters does not have anything special about them. I did mention about everything happens for a reason, and that is right. The characters are like their characteristics exist because someone change them, not because they are born that way so they are pretty much normal people
In comparison to other animes I had watched at the time, I felt that Sankrea was left too open ended for acceptance. In response to my unsatisfied conscience, I started to read the manga. I expected the main plot to have many events scattered all over the manga in a jumbled order to give humor. In contrast, the manga was extraordinarily intriguing for the plot was well planned out as well as hit my emotions in both positive and negative standpoints. I reread the manga in random chapters, as well as retelling the story to intrigue other friends and family of mine. A master piece
of a manga, for the story was enough for me to love the characters and art.
Sankarea: Undying Love , literally undying love because it is a love between a human and a zombie. I first watch the anime and due to my interest on what will happen next i thoroughly read the manga only to be in love with this again.This anime is unique because you can feel the heartwarming love between our two protagonist even though the theme or scene is somewhat dark.
The story is told in an interesting way. You could literally feel the love every chapter. Also the darkness theme that is slowly oozing out little by little .Killing and making Rea a
zombie on the first part of the manga. I am pretty much shock because Rea is an adorable girl and it is unforgivable... clearly unforgivable. But later i found out that it's a part of the big picture , making me completely hook up in their world.
I could easily give an 11 rating for Rea alone , but other characters is a bit bland. Even the art of drawing Furuya is a bit bland , considering that he is a main character. But the drawing of the setting/background is nice. It easily add to the pent up suspense on my heart whenever i read it.
You can easily relate yourself with the character. They don't have a weird or complex behavior that can make yo say "Why have you done that?" The decision and the personality of the character is what you can see on a typical people with the same attitude.
i personally enjoy the show. It's like I'm reading a first class romance story with a bonus of gore/horror. Rest assusred that it complement each other giving you a nice story.
So that's it. Hoping you like my review. For violent reaction or suggestion just message me. I won't bite people.
Sankarea is a mysterious zombie romance that sounds kind of diffrent and funny, i first watched the anime back there in 2012, and i remember that i really loved it, so why not read the manga and know the end of the story?
My frist reaction was that it was going to be a light love story just like the anime... but the anime just covered 2 volumes of the manga, so thats almost nothing of the story, later on the volume 4 it got a bit more darkness than the expected, and in fact that the anime had a focus on the romance of the
protagonists and not on the horror love story i got a little bit surprised with the progress of it, but after the volume 7 the story got into a diffrent way and a little bit confusing, unnecessary situations that affected the hole story and in the end it was corny, the character development was somewhat interesting but after all... cliche, and also poorly explained
The background horror zombie story was interesting and good, but since the volume 1 the fanservice and ecchi scenes was killing slowly the magic of it, and even the own autor said on the specials that what was keeping the manga alive was the ecchi/fanservice, that in case was 13 years old girls naked, but the back story was good at all... but i have to confess that i got disappointed but not surprised.
