Sankarea is about a zombie-obsessed boy, Chihiro Furuya, who discovers how to resurrect the dead and as a result acquires a zombie girlfriend when the 15 year old girl he likes, Rea Sanka, dies in an accident but is brought back to life thanks to having earlier drunk a potion he had developed using information he got from an old manuscript.
Hydrangeas feature prominently in the story as the zombies need to eat them to keep body and soul together (literally!)
Ironically Rea had actually drunk the potion as a suicide attempt, as one of its ingredients was the poisonous...
I'm 17th!! I haven't read the manga (but intend to do so), but I watched the first 4 episodes of Sankarea today, and I thought it was awesome (except for Rea's father and mother)!
