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!

A Hearty Meal

Sankarea 11 jp
In the wake of her hunger-fueled rampage, Rea has left a trail of destruction leading up to the auditorium of her school, and it seems as though the only way to stop her is to give her what all zombies truly desire-to devour the thing that they love. Chihiro believes that he knows how to stop Rea and he is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to end her incessant desire to consume flesh, but with her memory of Chihiro seemingly gone since her time at ZoMA, will his plan really be enough to bring Rea back to her senses? Or will Rea succumb to her endless hunger, lost to the inevitable fate of all zombies-to become a “terminal eater?”
