Well I didn't like their "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" too, because this wasn't in the original manga.

I know the feeling there. When the male lead started saying he would love a zombie for what it is, I'm like this dude's love for horror movie is probably unhealthy but it's not too egregious. And then he started walking around with a dead cat after a midnight session of grave digging.... I'm like... hmmmph.

The idea of him having a fetish for moe zombies is too utterly ridiculous, especially for a show with dark undertones and themes underneath the surface. Actually the nonchalant manner in which they presented those darker undertones was too quirky for my own tastes as well.
Some nonchalant utterances like his physical attraction to the walking dead aka zombies. And her shocking revelation that her father was checking her out in her birthday suit in every one of her birthday. I almost heard a "giggity" somewhere if not for the seriousness of the situation. The comedy is there when I start ignoring certain factors and start weighing things from a Quagmire-like perspective.

Yeah, I didn't know what I watched either as I was staring at the screen for seconds after the episode was over, but I know darn well that I'll be back for second.

Honestly, the first episode surprised me. Having never read the manga itself and merely reading about the premise of the show in general...let's just say I expected it to be a darker and more straightforward telling of said premise.

However, I can't say I'm unhappy with the way Sankarea uses the zombie premise - and it does make a change from other anime that involve zombies just as much as they involve apocalypses.

Two rather likable leads, OPs and EDs that fit remarkably well (and of which the former is now stuck in my head like Hanasaku Iroha's OP music was - damn you nano.RIPE ) and a premise that takes a different view from the norm regarding zombies.

Yep, I'm here to stay

The episode 1 was actually pretty good. Very nice animation and visuals, good job DEEN.

I hope Saten-san Rea won't become like The Walking Dead zombie:

What I liked the most is the quality animation, at first I thought the art style was just rough, approximate (and I didn't know about DEEN back then ). But after a very little I changed my mind. It was really good. I also like the way they are handling the little *fanservice*, may I call it as such? Not pushing, but subtle. Fitting the atmosphere. Rea is really cute (even if a bit too naive), and the childhood friend too.

What about the premises? Well I'll hold on until they unfold the real direction they are gonna take, because so far they could go anywhere. And that father's reference is quite awkward to handle, even given the premises of the show. And the preview seems to keep that feeling in some way. So I'll wait and see.


Spoiler for episode 1 and Rea:

That's definitely Saten-san. She's not Rea.

It surprises me how many people are uncomfortable with this series just because of the premise. Is comedic necrophilia really that much worse than comedic pedophilia or comedic incest, which have long been staples of anime? I mean, it'd be one thing if we were expected to take it seriously, but it's pretty obvious that he's being characterized as a weirdo.

I've never seen comedic paedophilia or incest actually happen in anime. I've only ever seen it take the form of a fat freak who gets smacked around by a girl with a paper fan whenever he gets too disgusting.

It's fine if they play up his bizarre attraction as comical but if there is some actual romance, then it's just weird...

I didn't realize that many people are that weirded out by the necrophilia and incest premise..well I was kinda weirded out by the cousin thing....but I didn't really care much about the necrophiliac since I just thought this is just them trying to be different with a weirdo character anyway. And it's not like the guy go to graveyards and dig up corpses, he just keep it to his zombie movies so it's not that creepy for me.

Alot of anime is kinda pedo or at least have some lolita characters. IDK about it being comedic but it do happen ie Nisemonogatari Mayoi Hachikuji. It is a staple of anime and people have overlooked it so w/e

I haven't read the manga, so I don't know at all what direction this show will take, but I think the necrophilia angle isn't purely a comedy device. There seems to be a half-understood metaphoric angle to it, paired - maybe - with a careful-what-you-wish-for plot?

There's a lot of repressed emotion going on (= "zombification in life"). It's most noticable in the main characters family. A key scene was at Baabu's funeral, where Meru asked whether she had to control her emotions even in this situation... Note that the only one smiling in the entire family is the dead mother - on a picture. On the metaphorical level, there's a blurring of alive/dead going on, and that may well feed into the main character's fetish. It's not necessarily real necrophilia. (This anime sort of reminds me - in a very loose fashion - of the film Harold and Maude; except without Maude.)

And then there's Rea's screaming into a well...

This could turn out to be an emotionally taxing watch, with the zombie/necrophilia angle as bait-and-switch distraction. This could become very dark, but not so much because of actual death. I'm very curious. The surprise of the season, so far (beating even Shirokuma Kafe).

Everything was passable except the end. I mean, wtf... we gotta give it all away? It was about to end on a really nice note too.

Rea was HHNNGGHHH though.

Not gonna lie, I've been waiting for this since I first read the announcement. The preview only pumped me up. The first episode exceeded my expectation and I'm not even into whole zombie trend. I just like all the characters here and Rea is just so cute.

If only the anime continues just like this, I'd be happy. Now all I can do is just echo all the positive sentiments before me. This one just has all the right ingredients to be one of the better weird romance anime. Even with all the dark elements being hinted, this one didn't really tread to emotional affair. The anime seems to be one of those schizophrenic anime or an emotional rollercoaster.

For one thing, there aren't many times, heck none that I can remember at this moment, where there was comedic pedo/incest where the character actually meant it. In this case, the protagonist really has necrophilia, which aids the disturbance.
That, and well yeah, even if the character is underage or blood-related, I do find it better than a dead body.

That's as best, lolicon. It's not like the protagonist seriously loves Mayoi, much less because she is young.

I'm definitely watching this series. The first episode really drew me in and I'm looking forward to the next one. I enjoy a good horror anime and I think this one won't disappoint me. The main male character is very eccentric, but I feel like he has a lot of repressed emotions involving the death of his mother and there's some sort of correlation of that with zombies. I never read the manga, but we'll see where this goes...

Maybe I just find necrophilia too alien to take it seriously here. It doesn't bother me in this anime or manga at all. Pure fantasy, without any really gory images. If we had anime versions of some of the "guro" images floating around the Net (real dismembered corpses, etc.) that would be a different matter. I think the notion of death is real here, and gives the situation some of its interest, but as for any offensive imagery, I haven't seen it. Sanka may be "dead," but she seems pretty alive to me.
