The series adapts Mitsuru Hattori's Sankarea zombie comedy manga which Kodansha USA is releasing in English. The story of the original manga revolves around Chihiro Furuya, a high school freshman who is obsessed with zombies. Even his dream is to "kiss a zombie girl." Through an unexpected set of circumstances, Chihiro gets to know a pretty girl named Rea Sanka, and together, they try to revive Chihiro's pet cat Babu who died in an accident. Chihiro discovers that Rea wants to get away from her many responsibilities by becoming a zombie herself. The rock band nano.RIPE (Hana-Saku Iroha) contributed the show's opening theme song "Esoragoto."
The anime premiered in Japan last spring.
