I really liked it, for a month after I finished it I was impatient to read more, but since that on I am calm and ready to get a new translated scanlation in my hands.

Also I wonder if the anime stops at the same point or continues, if continues Ill instantly go to watch it.

Addicting

Are you a sucker for unorthodox or supernatural love interests? Two words, my friends. Zombie. Romance.

The Manga is incredibly addicting and hasnít stumbled over itself yet. It does an amazing job of setting the mood and can be such a deceptively light-hearted romp only to come crashing down to earth with the true problems with caring for a decaying corpse with the strength to snap you like a kit-kat bar and at times, strange appetites that might put you or another loved one on the menu. Intriguing and building toward a climax I canít wait to read.

Definite thumbs up!

It's an enjoyable, if often predictable romantic comedy. Nothing earth shattering but an enjoyable read nonetheless. To be honest I have to question the reading comprehension of those complaining that it somehow "changed", from the very first issue there was a heavy strand of comedy flowing through it, up to an including breaking the fourth wall.

Boring romantic comedy   
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0

The story starts off great. Rich daughter from abusive family dies and is resurrected via a zombie formula created by boy. Boy and girl then explore the effects and origins of said zombie formula and discover a much larger and deeper world around zombies. Sounds awesome right? Should be lots of action and mystery with an intro like that!

Except the plot completely and utterly gets derailed in favor for cheap ecchi side stories and typical shounen school problems. When the story DOES go back to the main plot, the story does a great job of teasing things, before reminding us that NOTHING in this story is taken seriously such as counteracting a zombie berserk state through... love.

If the girl wasn't a zombie, this would be nothing more than a weak romantic comedy. The cast of characters are heavily tied to the plot but consequently feel out of place in the lighter parts of the story.

I want to say thanks to the one I just pushed out of the page that said 'always always always,' complaining about the manga containing a love triangle. Focusing on a dead girl disgusts me, but now I am definitely reading this one, 'cause I love shit like love triangles (ef is FTW). Plus, the artist is pretty good at drawing.

I'm a big fan of everything Hattori Mitsuru has ever made, and I personally believe this is his best work yet. Sankarea manages a delicate balance of grimness and lightheartedness that is fairly rare in most series. There is a lot more I could probably say about what makes this manga a great read, but it's hard to put into words for some reason.

Just as you start to think that things are getting to sickly sweet, something tragic happens. Or you'll be laughing one moment and then a bombshell gets dropped. The pacing is excellent and the characters are interesting to read as well.

So far, personal character development has been pretty minor. For the most part, the characters seem to be the same from the start of the manga as they are now, but that doesn't bother me too much. The plot is what has been advancing nicely, and it's kind of a treat to see characters that already feel developed react in the situations presented to them.

The only let down is Rea. She's one of the titular characters, but so far it seems the only reason she's around is for the sake of the male lead. I don't dislike her character, but I'm hoping that in future developments, she's able to be less codependent on that front.

To be fair though, given what happens to her, it's not surprising she's the way she is.

This was supposed to be a happy romance from the beginning

People complain that they were disappointed after the first few chapters of Sankarea, and I don't blame them; the manga's direction could have gone anywhere judging the from the first three chapters. In a nutshell,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she becomes a zombie after chapter 3.
From there, the story has a rather large amount of possibilities. Off the top of my head, I can think of "a tragic love story where the our lovers enjoy their small amount of time together as one of the partners deteriorates slowly but surely." I can also come up with "as a owner of a drug with huge medical and military implications, our Furuya battles alongside the now powered-up Rea to keep his new drug away from the hands of evil!" Notice how all the plots seem cliché and silly; that's because I suck at thinking of these things at the spot >_>
The point is, this manga could have gone anywhere from the first three chapters, but it decided to go the "a happy rom-com where our protagonists do all they can to overcome their difficulties (zombie) in order to fullfull each other's loves/live" Essentially your standard romantic comedy with a moderate amount of ecchi, only with a "zombie-twist" dictating the plot as well as zombie drama here and there. I'm expecting a happy end when the manga does conclude, and I wouldn't be surprised if a bunch of B.S. science has to be used to get there. But I don't mind that, because the characters are really sweet and earnest about their love, and it would feel good to see them live happily ever after.

Starts with promise, but ends a letdown.

Sankarea had promise, but it blew it after a few chapters. I kept reading it for three volumes--longer after it had stopped being interesting. There's really not a lot happening, and the main character despite being a zombie had the personality of....well....a zombie. And no I don't mean the cool goth kind, I mean a personality less girl like Tenshi from Angel Beats--a girl who has no reason for existing other than her love for a guy, which defines her character. The protaginist is your typical wimpy shounen lead, and rather than causing events, he's just swept up int hem like everyone else. And by events I don't mean plot or relationship development...just panty shots, pointless love triangle drama that is fated to go nowhere, etc. Give the first 3 chapters a read, but after that stay far away, its just not worth your time.

ok. shit. I regret only one thing about this manga: I started reading it before it was completed. And now I feel like I'm reading Deadman Wonderland, always waiting for more, always regretting the ongoing-status. Agh. But the art is quite nice (even though the big breasts of some are completely unrealistic), I don't mind the ecchi-tag (I usually avoid mangas with this genre) and the characters are interesting ^^ And the plot is evil because it keeps you thrilled.


For all fans of ongoing series (I know you guys exist): READ IT.
For all fans of completed series: Feel my pain and avoid it until it's completed.
