Mitsuru Hattori’s “zombie moe adolescent romantic comedy”
The October issue of Kodansha’s Bessatsu Sh?nen Magazine is announcing on Friday that a television anime adaptation of Mitsuru Hattori’s Sankarea “zombie moe adolescent romantic comedy” manga has been green-lit.
The story revolves around Chiharu Furuya, a high school freshman who is obsessed with zombies. Even his dream is to “kiss a zombie girl.” Through an unexpected set of circumstances, Chiharu gets to know an elegant, pretty girl named Rea Sanka, and together, they try to revive Chiharu’s pet cat Baabu who died in an accident. Chiharu discovers that Rea wants to get away from her many responsibilities by becoming a zombie herself.
Hattori launched the manga in 2009, and the fourth compiled book volume shipped last month.
Somehow I’d missed out on the news that Funimation’s home video release of Sankarea is censored. Funimation didn’t tell us about this, which makes this that much worse.
Funimation failure. Funimation has really been taking a nose-dive as of late. I wonder if that’s something to be read into.
I’m sorely tempted to, if ever it should arrive, send my copy of this show back to Funimation.
