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.

  • It Was... Successful
    Episode 2 - It Was... Successful

  • Sanka... Rea
    Episode 3 - Sanka... Rea

    Rea is grounded indefinitely for sneaking out at night, and her father decides to keep her home from school, for good measure. She sneaks out again anyway, and goes looking for Chihiro. Elsewhere, when Babu runs away, Chihiro and Ranko chase after him.

  • A Normal... Girl
    Episode 4 - A Normal... Girl

    Aria learns that Rea has run away, and Dan'ichiro vows to get her back. In Chihiro's room, Rea sews up her wound, and the two of them each come to terms with her rebirth as a zombie. Free of her father, Rea reveals to Chihiro what she now wants from him.

  • If She's a Zombie... That Means...
    Episode 5 - If She's a Zombie... That Means...

    With Rea going through rigor mortis, Chihiro does his best to keep her hidden while attending to household chores. While trying to figure out how to preserve Rea's body, Chihiro makes a startling discovery about his grandpa. Ranko learns more about Rea.

  • It's Because I... Ran Into You
    Episode 6 - It's Because I... Ran Into You

    Rea's strange behavior leads her to kiss Chihiro in front of Ranko. After Rea slips away, Chihiro learns some valuable information about the undead from his grandpa. Chihiro decides to start keeping a diary of his observations of Rea.

  • Childhood... Friends...
    Episode 7 - Childhood... Friends...

    Chihiro spends his Sunday helping out with the Saoji family's restaurant. Ranko tells the tale of the first time she met Chihiro. The two young children develop an unusual friendship between themselves as more about Ranko's family is revealed.

    Episode 8 - Counterfeit... Freedom...

    After Rea agrees to join the Furuya family in a meal, Chihiro becomes more interested in her dietary habits. At Rea's insistence, he takes her to the mall to shop for clothes. Once there, however, Chihiro isn't the only one who pays attention to Rea.

  • A Mother's... Hand...
    Episode 9 - A Mother's... Hand...

    Mero and her two friends tell tales of their own brushes with zombies. Ichie tells of the creature that the art teacher keeps; Miko relates the story of an awful smell that led her to a house of horror. Mero's story, however, trumps them both.

  • Strong... Feelings...
    Episode 10 - Strong... Feelings...

    While being held hostage inside the Sanka mansion, Chihiro meets Aria. She discloses that she is Rea's stepmother, and relates how she came to be married to Dan'ichiro. In the course of her tale, more about Dan'ichiro's past is also revealed to Chihiro.

  • Nothing... Really... Special
    Episode 11 - Nothing... Really... Special

  • At That Moment... I...
    Episode 12 - At That Moment... I...

    Chihiro begins to have second thoughts about his duty in looking after Rea's welfare, and how little he can do for her. When plans to watch a fireworks show that Rea has her heart set on seeing fall through, the group comes up with an alternative.

  • I, Too, Am... A Zombie...
    OVA 1 - I, Too, Am... A Zombie...

    Despite their decaying bodies, Rea’s zombie power comes in handy both at school and at home, and Babu gets interested in another cat—although this particular feline is one of the living.

"Boo, Update the Sub!"

Way to draw me in with the TV-MA label Funi. Way to keep the censored Sub streaming too. As always I get 2/3 episodes into a show then give up at the first sign of censoring.
