Watch Corpse Princess

Corpse Princess Corpse Princess, written and illustrated by Yoshiichi Akahito, is an exciting addition to the world of Japanese manga. This story features the charming but vengeful "Corpse Princess" Makina Hoshimura, an undead girl on a quest for 108 undead corpses so that she may escape her doom of being forever undead, and go on to gain entrance into a spiritual world. Throughout her journey she is assisted by a secret society of Buddhist monks who despise corpses and are more than willing to help her with her hunt. Her tale is ideal for those seeking that classic zombie-killing fiction adventure with charming, complex characters that are sure to grasp your attention and keep you watching.

After her tragic murder, Makina's life takes a sinister turn as she is transformed into a "living shikabane", a creature that a person may be reduced to if their death left them with such a powerful regret that they become obsessed with acquiring vengeance for it. Makina is equipped with machine guns as well as an accomplice; a team of anti-corpse monks, who assist her along her journey to destroy the shikabane known as the Seven Stars in order to satisfy revenge for her family's death and ultimately, gain her own long-anticipated entrance into heaven.

Ultimately, this dangerously arousing series is a malicious account of a girl trapped amidst the world of the undead who only seek to destroy the lives of innocents just as they destroyed Makina and her family. Since she is also at her own unrest, she takes it upon herself to smite those evil undead shikabane whose only desire is to menace the living. She makes it her personal crusade to finish off every monster still walking the earth who belongs nowhere except a grave. Makina is the only vengeance for the living who have no defense against the undead shikabane.
