The ink is still drying on the contract, but we're delighted to announce that Sankarea has been snagged for release by MVM later this year.
Sankarea is a critically acclaimed 12 episode series which aired in Japan in 2012. This fresh take on zombie culture centres around Chihiro Furuya, a male high school student with a keen interest in zombies.
Following the death of his pet cat, Bābu, he attempts to revive it using an old manuscript, which describes the process of creating a potion for resurrection. At this time, he encounters a girl named Rea Sanka, who has run away from home. In an attempt to commit suicide, she drinks a sample of the "resurrection" potion which is created from the poisonous Hydrangea macrophylla flower, though this fails to kill her. Following an argument with her father, she falls from a cliff by accident and dies. However, as a result of the potion, she becomes a zombie who eats hydrangea leaves.
In turns funny and moving, this is one to watch out for!
Release dates and artwork will follow as we firm them up.
