Furuya's obsessed with zombies. He collects any figurines, watches any movie, and plays any game with the living dead, and is even only interested in zombie girls.

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.

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.

Insert standard comment

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 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)

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

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 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.
