In the fifth volume of Undying Love, we learn that Rea, like past zombie subjects, will slowly succumb to her true nature. Becoming ever more dangerous to those she loves. Chihiro.

As she realizes she is in love with him, she learns that her love will turn on him. After an initial taste of Chihiro, she runs away fearing she could do more harm. He eventually finds her, tickled by the idea of his "girlfriend" eating him.

This "sweet" moment is ruined as Rea tries to eat him once more with more res

It has now been two weeks since Rea died and was reanimated but already she has entered her turbid period. The turbid period is the process in which what humanity the zombie has left is slowly fading and instead is being taken over by instincts.
As Rea's condition worsens to the point where she nearly kills Furuya in an instant, she chains herself and hides, so that she won't eat Furuya... The injury that Furuya sustained puts him in bed and he sleeps for two whole days without waking once, but a

The word that jumps out at me when I try to describe this series is intriguing. I don’t feel like that gives enough detail, that it’s too vague, but it’s true. I just don’t even know what to expect from this series at this point, I’m not completely caught yet, but I’m really enjoying seeing where it’s going.

I’m finding it increasingly apparent that I like Rea, and that she might actually be my favorite character. I’m surprised by her. She’s shy, but

Sì, dai... tutto sommato mi piace. È una lettura un po' diversa rispetto a quello che leggo di solito come manga. Anche vero che ho un debole per i racconti di zombie.

Questo dà una visione un po' particolare del folklore zombiesco. C'è il veleno delle ortensie che aiuta, ma poi è difficile mantenere la condizione iniziale e bisogna trovare un modo per preservare la povera Rea, che sarà costretta - a breve - a mangiare chi ama. Però, sembra che il gatto non abbia dovuto subire la stessa cosa...

In this volume Rea attends her first festival with Furuya and his friends. Rea is enjoying feeling like a normal girl until her zombie instincts kick in and she almost destroys Furuya>

This story contines to have cute romance with creepy undertones.

I normally dislike zombies, but this was actually pretty good. The main zombie character is cute^2 and the cat boy is just too funny. Overall, there are a few odd bits I simply don't get (scenes which likely make sense to Japanese and not Americans) but I would definetly recommend it!

A dark romantic manga. Includes zombies and a good art style. There is a good plot and the concept is also very good.

Is there anything more romantic than a love that's not bound by such pesky practical concerns as "rigor mortis" and "cannibalism"?
