Funimation Streams Sankarea: Undying Love Uncut Trailer
posted on by Daryl Lee Hale
Funimation is releasing the uncut version of Sankarea as a BluRay and DVD combo pack on March 31. The re-release will include scenes that were not included when the company initially released the series on home video in 2013. Funimation recalled the release after changing the rating from TV-14 to TV-MA.
Funimation also streamed Sankarea in 2012 as it aired in Japan.
Funimation describes the story:
Zombie-obsessed Furuya is making a potion to reanimate his dead cat when he meets Rea. She's about as miserable as a girl can get, thanks to her creepy, domineering father. When the pain becomes too much, she tries to commit suicide with a sip of Furuya's weird elixir. The potion doesn't kill her – but it does turn her into a zombie after she falls from a cliff.
Now that Rea's undead and ready to finally live, she hides out with Furuya, who's always dreamed of having a zombie girlfriend. Their one-of-a-kind relationship comes with some challenges, like the fact that Rea is decomposing. Even worse, her freak-show dad is dangerously determined to get her back under his control. As Furuya fights to keep his ghoulfriend safe, Rea finds the secret to resurrecting her happiness: Live like you're dying – even if you're already dead.
