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.

i get over being scared of the dark since very little. i never frightened over fearsome rumour of spirit presence. i thread on scary places with confidence. I LAUGH WHENEVER WATCHING HORROR MOVIES, (bet you don't when you watch juon, the ring, etc). but, i cannot get this cute zombie and this cute storyline. i'm frightened more than ever! this is casper! (i'm in the mid of chapter 4, page 15 to be exact)

lost its scariness. only cute-cute romance is left as of now.

you see tons of mangas about a boy who falls in love with a girl from another school, even with the girl who has a father that treats them badly, maybe even with the boy having a weird fetish! but when the girl gets turned into a zombie, i haven't read a manga like that yet.

Unique, interesting, an unexpected. This is definitely not a generic romance series. Every chapter leaves me without a clue how things will develop in the next. How many serialized works can you say that about?

I get this eerily feeling when reading this manga. It feels as if something horrible could go wrong any minute... unexpectedly, I love it.

There's alot of tension, but maybe has alot more to do with just having zombie as a theme. anyhow I love most of HATTORI Mitsuru works, and I have a good feeling I'll enjoy this one too.

This series is certainly not a generic romance. Though I have only read the first 3 chapters, it looks very promising and I am looking forward to what will happen in the future. The manga shows slight signs of necrophilia, but it looks like it is more of comedic value?

Anyhow, give it a try.
