Manga Review: Sankarea: Undying Love, Volume 11, by Mitsuru Hattori

Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5-4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: March 2015
Volumes: 11
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 10.

Goodreads Synopsis:


Since he was little, Chihiro has felt an unusual emotional connection to zombie movies. It’s not that he feels bad for the survivors – instead he fantasizes about comforting the poor undead girls they slaughter! When his beloved pet passes away, he decides to brew up a resurrection potion in secret. But he’s discovered by popular girl and local heiress Sanka Rea, whose life isn’t as perfect as it seems… and Furuya suggests that she could serve as a test subject!


I think I expected a different ending. Maybe even wanted a different one. Was prepared for something else.
Rea was going downhill fast in her zombie state. Even her father got dragged in to try to save her. Chihiro tried all he could to get some sense into her, since it had worked for him before. She was a mess.
I don’t want to spoil what happens, but I’m not sure I liked it. What we were originally led to believe, that something happened to him, I could accept. I’m not sure if I liked it, per se, but I thought it worked. And then they changed that. And I suppose it makes for a happier ending, and I can be okay with that—it’s not like I wanted them all to die—but I didn’t expect it to be that easy or simple. I guess I was too prepared for something else, not such a happy resolution. I can accept it, but I don’t know if I agree with it completely.
Overall, this was a pretty good series. I really enjoyed Rea and Mero the most, and I was impressed with the world and the development of Rea being a zombie. I enjoyed it, and would recommend it.
