i found it pretty boring, don't understand how it got such a high rating. It starts off with a bit of promise but then just becomes repetitive same old same old of girl flirting with guy, panty shots, cleavage, bath scenes. Where is the bloody suspense, action, there is none.

I think the mangaka is on steroids. The mood changes with almost every frame: in the best parts it stars with "aww, that's cute", then goes to "now that's wierd" and "that can't get wierder" and "OK, it can" and then back again to being cute.

Standard romance plot #6. Guy meets princess - princess wants out of the tower.

Insert standard manga twist #13. zombies.

Overall - well executed but the cast of characters pushes the incredulity envelope.

A more serious manga would contain more characters and introduce them less randomly. Sigh

I personally find this manga rather unique though I'm sure others who have read weirder stuff may/will disagree. Up to chapter 7 so far and the plot in pretty good. Hope this series will continue on at a steady pace and may the scanlations keep pace with it! Thanks by the way for the hard work Simple Scans.

8.7 out of 10 at the moment.

EDIT: Wow this series has been on my "hold" list for years. Reason? It changed from an odd romantic comedy-horror series to a depressing, dramatic horror series with mentally sick bad guys and a continuously descending-into-darkness plotline. ie Cerberus syndrome in spades.

If you like dark depressing shit then go for this series. If you're a normal happy everyday human being then avoid it. Don't let the initial chapters fool you.

This manga would be 10/10 if and ONLY if the crappy love triangle aspect was not here. WHY do mangas like this ALWAYS have to have a half-assed love triangle between the main character, his childhood friend, and the girl he likes/who likes him. I am tired of the stupid cliche triangle: note to authors; love triangles ARE BORING. They always end exactly the same way and they don't do anything plot wise other than to make readers rage; GET RID OF THEM!!! Giving this a 7/10 for now since the love triangle crap is annoying me.

balance between seriousness and comedy (IMO)
The main character looks like a cat almost all the time.
Art is pretty good during some scenes (especially when the comedy-style stops),

Definitely unique.

A very strong start to a potentially good series

Sankarea started off very well. A quirky male lead (who makes really funny faces), an interesting, conflicted, yet cute female lead, nice comedy, and a unique premise. A guy obsessed with zombies? A girl wanting to be reborn (because her life sucks so much)??

Sounds like a good start to me.

The art is quite good, but nothing special. I would call it average, because though sometimes it is well drawn (the girl Sanka Rea has a very nice design), at other times it's just average, maybe even below. But it is bearable. I like it, if that's anything to go by. The paneling is easy to read and clean.

If the quality keeps this high in later volumes I think Sankarea will be a wonderful series. It makes me curious when it's basically a shonen romantic comedy....WITH A ZOMBIE TWIST!

1st time reading a manga
with a protagonist obsess
to zombies that makes me curious.

yup more on comedy than romance
but the one thing I love about this
is the obsess funny father who wants her
daughter back though he is kinda jerk
and the protagonist who help the heroine
and trying to solve the puzzle of preserving
life of his ideal zombie girl lol wierd taste
but if you saw the heroine you would not mind!

A rather interesting and original title from the same mangaka behind Ushio.

The characters, though a bit cliched, are nonetheless different from his previous work, the plot stood out for having a bit of romance and supernatural rolled up as one, along with the direction it took following the first chapter.

Looking forward to the rest of the chapters in the future.
