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.

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 ...

I mean, what the heck is happening to this world... It looks like they are doing it on purpose. PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW TO THE VERY END BEFORE ANYTHING.

I watched the anime like... 4 years ago and I just loved everything, the desing, the characters, the music, but it just covered 2 volumes of the mangas and there was no signs of a 2nd season so, a few days ago I found out that the manga was finished so I read it and wow...

Sankarea was a great manga, I fell in love with all the characters inmediatly, Babu, Rea, Darin, Chihiro, Professor Boil, it's imposible ...
