Sankarea - Chihiro Furuya is a male high school student with a keen interest in zombies, collecting zombie-related videogames, film and manga, and even to the point of desiring to "kiss a zombie girl". Following the death of his pet cat, Bābu, he attempts to revive it using an old manuscript, which describes the process of creating a potion for resurrection. At this time, he encounters a girl named Rea Sanka, who has run away from home. In an attempt to commit suicide, she drinks a sample of the "resurrection" potion which is created from the poisonous Hydrangea macrophylla flower, although this fails to kill her. Following an argument with her father, she falls from a cliff by accident and dies. However, as a result of the potion, she becomes a zombie who eats hydrangea leaves to survive
I watched this anime ongoing, really fun stuff. Sadly I still haven't read the manga but I'll get to that eventually. I think the anime has some OVAs I still haven't seen as well.
I enjoyed Sankarea's interesting take on the whole zombie deal. I don't think I've ever encountered another anime that focuses on zombie romance, definitely an unusual premise but they still did it pretty well and made the character development pretty engaging. Only thing was that it was really short so there wasn't a lot of time for major development and obviously no closure just yet. This was a fun anime though, along with Tasogare Otome x Amnesia, which a lot of people compare to it.
