VIDEO: Second Time is a Charm in FUNimation's "Sankarea" Uncut Trailer

DVD/Blu-ray set planned for March 31st

Back in 2013, after reviewing materials and finding that they had the broadcast rather than the Japanese home video version, FUNimation decided to issue a recall on the their Sankarea release. The replacement release is now ready, set to be released in an "Uncut" edition on DVD/Blu-ray on March 31st.


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.
