Goodreads Synopsis:


Looking to cure Bub's condition, Chihiro and company have finally arrived at ZoMA HQ. There, they are greeted by ZoMA's chief, Salva Arnschent Kurumiya, along with his adorable zombie daughter, Rosarie. This place has been called the zombie "holy land" but with cute girls like these to tickle Chihiro's fancy, could this be a bit of zombie "paradise"? Meanwhile, the Chief has taken an interest in Rea and conducts a series of tests to probe her unique zombie state. Is Rea's rare condition the key to suppressing the "turbid period"?


I don’t know what it is with manga lately, but the last few that I’ve read have left me with a horrible cliffhanger. This one probably being the second worst one.
In the last volume, Sankarea had decided to go to Zoma with Darin, to let the scientists test her. Chihiro protests, but decides to go with her when she won’t relent. The lab is on an island, and the scientists immediately latch onto Sankarea, wanting to find out what’s different about her, and they have some surprising discoveries.
We’re introduced to Darin’s creepy father, which explains some of why she’s the way she is. We also meet a girl zombie, who is utterly creepy.
And then we’re brought to the end of the volume, which has two surprising twists. The one with Sankarea has me very interested, because if it worked, that would be a very big development. But the one with Chihiro is horrible, if it actually happened. I was seriously not expecting either of these things to happen, especially so fast.
It has me really eager to get my hands on the next volume, though.
