Jogoro – Mike McFarland
Dan’ichiro – David Wald
ADR Director – Joel McDonald

Sankarea the series is based off the manga of the same name and tells the tale of a young boy who falls in love with a bewitching zombie-girl. The manga is powerful on many levels and an absolute breeze to read. In fact, we’ll be posting our review of the first volume in the near future, but until then, just trust us when we say it’s pure zombie-loving gold.
