Highlighting the undying love between the main characters, made everyone fall in love with the fictional world. This sadly came to an end immediately after the first season. In this article, we will answer everyone’s curiosity about the return of the series with the second season.
A Peek Into The Storyline
There have been several stories about zombies going on a killing spree or zombies taking over the world after an apocalypse. The year 2012 saw an unexpected love story between a young boy and a dead girl, yes a zombie.
The series is based on the graphic novel. It revolves around Chihiro Furuya wanting to kiss a female zombie. He is said to have a ‘thing’ for zombies and he can be seen collecting valuables related to them. He talks to his friends about it. His friends call him an idiot. Yet, he continues to look for his ‘true love.’ During his search for the one, he loses his pet cat. He tries to revive her by preparing a resurrection potion.
Before he goes ahead to use the potion on her, Rea Sanka drinks it assuming it to be poison. Rea Sanka jumps from the cliff in an attempt to stay away from her abusive father. The potion, which did not kill her earlier, ends up saving her by bringing her back to life after the jump. This is followed by a spark developed in the heart of Chihiro Furuya for Rea Sanka. Rea decides to stay with him to experience what love truly is.
Overall, it’s a cute love story between the living and the dead.
