Format: Paperback
The fourth volume of “Sankarea” starts with a light-hearted “summer festival” episode, in which our hero Furuya, zombie heroine Rea, Furuya’s first-cousin Ranko and zombie expert from Southern islands Darin have a good time doing goldfish scooping and other fun games. This is followed by more serious and dramatic episodes about Ranko who has a crush on Furuya, and Rea whose “zombification” process seems to have moved into a new phase. You know what zombies would normally do to humans in zombie movies.

One of the big no-nos in storytelling (in comics or other media like films) is to get your readers bored. Though its story is surprisingly slow-moving (only two weeks have passed since the first volume), “Sankarea” manages to keep you interested and entertained so far, thanks to fleshed out characters and fine illustrations.

There is a slightly dark undertone running through the story – why not, because the heroine is dead after all! – but it is offset by humor that arrives at the most unexpected moment. The book also contains a special bonus story about zombie girl Rea’s everyday life seen from zombie cat Babu’s viewpoint (homage to Sosekki Natsume’s classic story “I Am a Cat”), and funny four-page bonus comic Mero’s Zen Riddles, plus one-page translation note that is helpful for those who are not very familiar with some of Japanese customs.

“Sankarea” started out as a romantic comedy with an unusual concept of “my zombie girlfriend” and so far stretched the idea pretty effectively (though almost failed in the second volume). The story has been admittedly thin and sometimes sluggish, but fine artwork and interesting characters make up for that.

This series gets better and better each volume. Can't wait till the next volume comes out. I also can't wait till the second season of the anime comes out to go over the stuff in this volume.

[More of my reviews are available on my blog, Geeky Reading, to which there's a link on my profile.]

The word that jumps out at me when I try to describe this series is intriguing. I don’t feel like that gives enough detail, that it’s too vague, but it’s true. I just don’t even know what to expect from this series at this point, I’m not completely caught yet, but I’m really enjoying seeing where it’s going.

I’m finding it increasingly apparent that I like Rea, and that she might actually be my favorite character. I’m surprised by her. She’s shy, but she’s earnest, sincere, and she doesn’t want to hurt anyone. She doesn’t want to fight—she just wants to be normal. And she wants friends, and a life, and to experience things. I understand her. And I want to be there throughout her journey.

Which is why her transformation is so surprising, and intense. She doesn’t want this, but she also legitimately wants to eat Chihiro, and thinks he looks delicious. And the poor guy just isn’t helping.

I really feel for her, too. And I really love the turn this is taking. It just wasn’t what I was expecting—and I still don’t know where it’s going. And now there are hints about Chihiro’s mother, and that has me really interested.

Aside from all of that, I still enjoy Chihiro’s little sister, Mero. I’m still not really liking their cousin. She just doesn’t seem important, and I don’t care for her flirting with Chihiro. Also, I’m starting to get annoyed with Chihiro, or at least with his hair. I’m not sure why, but his personality, and his cat-eared hair is just bothering me. Hopefully that’ll wear off soon.

I’m really enjoying the development of the zombie stuff, and Rea’s character. I’m really looking forward to seeing where it goes in the next volume.

Happy medium of traditional manga with a touch of guro. Packaging was awesome and was safe. Only complaint was that this was listed as Undying Love (Sankarea) but didn't mention that this was the fourth edition and not the first one. Doesn't really matter because I'm getting the whole series. This should probably be changed though for anyone wanting to start the series to avoid confusion.
