This was surprisingly good.
I’ve read the manga version of Sankarea, but the thing is, it’s not all that good. It’s been decent enough to keep me reading, but nothing great. The animated version took the manga and improved on it significantly.
The animation quality is particularly notable. The characters’ motions are fluid, and attention is paid to the details.
The two lead characters also have a great chemistry with the way they tease each other. Now, they did the same thing in the manga, but since there’s more time in the animation version they’ve expanded on this. It was quite effective.
The only caveat is that the best part of the manga was the beginning. But considering how the animated version has improved on even that, I’m optimistic.
