Okay, say whatever the hell you want, but this is definitely the best episode yet. The words epic, justice and fail come to mind. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that this anime is well on its way to becoming a hit. I can only hope right now that this show, seeing as it’s still now known how many episodes we can expect, will have at least twenty to twenty-four episodes.
I, in my previous posts, focussed a little bit on Rea’s father, the psychopathic paedophile. Not only am I happy that Rea-chan has found a different place, but I am also happy to see that man so miserable. If only Rea’s mother, a very attractive woman, would leave him as well and find some other man. That man no longer deserves a loving wife, children and/or friends. He is the type of man that deserves to die alone, and that is something I rarely say about a person (fictional and/or real). I don’t think it’s over yet though, as that man still poses a big threat to Rea and Chihro.
Now I would like to focus a bit more on Rea and Chihiro. They have seen some messed up stuff, both of them. But now their dreams finally come true. Rea-chan is (for the moment) released from her father’s evil clutches, and can start a new life like a normal girl by Chihiro’s side. Chihiro-kun has what he has always dreamed of; a zombie girlfriend. All the necrophilia aside, I think that they have a pretty could chance. However, Rea-chan’s body has proven to be quite problematic. She lost her strength at the end of the episode. It’s my guess that she’s hungry, and that she needs to feed on the same plant as Baabu did.
Also, I see a dreadful love triangle coming. I know that Ranko and Chihiro are related, but that didn’t stop Ranko from falling in love with him. I know that there are people out there that disagree on Ranko’s feelings for Chihiro. Face it; she has a major crush on him. It couldn’t be any more obvious. But neither Ranko nor Rea strike me as the type of girls that hold grudges.
I think this post is very clear on how I think about Sankarea right now. It’s a wonderful anime with one hell of a story. I can’t wait to see what happens next. Rea needs to regain her newly obtained monster-strength in order to defend herself and Chihiro against the wrath of her psycho father, whom probably will do anything in his power to get her back. I can’t wait to see how this plays out!Read More
Interesting. It didn’t quite go as I had expected, but it definitely was a good episode. There were a lot of ecchi scenes present, which made it all the more confusing. This anime isn’t labelled anywhere as ecchi, so am I imagining things? I’m pretty sure I’m right here. Oh, and please don’t come to me with links from Anidb. I don’t visit that horrible website.
It was a complicated yet relieving episode. Poor Rea woke up after having drunken that vial of poison. She was disappointed, but she was glad that she was alive. She overheard a conversation with her father, a psychopathic paedophile, that ordered one of his minions to go find Chihiro-kun and cut off his penis.
My god, that man is completely out of his mind. He wants full control over his daughter that he drove his wife into a corner, pushes away any and all friends, and is willing to kill and/or hurt anyone that gets too close to his daughter. That’s why I cheered when he Rea finally fought back. Sure, she plummeted to her death afterwards, but she was resurrected by that potion, which was still in her system at the time.
It was highly unexpected, but I like it! It’s much more interesting than drinking that stuff and waking up as a zombie. Okay, okay… I admit that I looked forward to her waking up as zombie and devouring that psychopath father of hers. We can’t all get what we want. Still, this is fine too. Chihiro has finally got the one thing that he has always wanted; a cute zombie girlfriend. Let the time of pure necrophilia roll!
Hehe, I’m kidding of course, although it really would be necrophilia I those two would… you know. I’m really looking forward to the next episode. I can’t wait to see her father’s reaction. Oh, and I’m also a little curious as to why Babu, Chihiro’s zombie cat, is so attracted to Rea. She is a zombie now, but she wasn’t one before she fell down from that cliff. Must – resist – urge – to – read – the – manga.Read More
Alright, I wasn’t sure if I was actually going to write about this one, but the second episode helped me to reach a final decision. Truthfully; I have never seen anything like this. I love it. This anime has also been labelled as ecchi, but I’ve only seen one ecchi scene so far, and that wasn’t even that bad. Strange…
The episode starts with Rea-chan and Chihiro’s attempts to resurrect Baabu, Chihiro’s pet cat, as a zombie. Now, for normal people this would’ve been a clear sign to stop watching and watch something else, but not for me, and not for genuine anime fans! I actually peeked at Sankarea’s current ratings, and I must say that it’s looking pretty good, my compliments to the author!
I’m not going into how they obtained all the necessary ingredients to create that potion of theirs, but let’s just say that they finally succeeded after a lot of attempts. It’s too bad that they couldn’t enjoy it together, because Chihiro and Ranko, his niece, opened up that box at his place, when suddenly this black flash jumped out of that box and out of the window. I guess their potion worked after all, hooray for Baabu!
This is when things get a little bit more complicated. Rea-chan decided, after having put up with all her father’s bullsh*t, to drink that potion herself. However, she didn’t know that it actually worked. She just thought that it was nothing but a vial of poison. Her father, who is clearly a paedophile, kept taking things from her; family, friends, pets, you name it. She decided that life wasn’t worth living with that man in her life, so she ended her life, or so she thought. I can’t wait to see the expression on her face as she wakes up and discovers that the potion actually worked after all.
I’m not going on for too long about how I enjoyed the second episode. Let us just say that I find it worth writing about, at the very least. The story is absolutely interesting and amusing, the artwork lives up to the story’s standard, plus it’s the type of anime I enjoy most. Ladies and gentlemen, let the good times roll!
Oh, one more thing; I wouldn’t trust some of the anime fansites out there. It’s still not clear how many episodes this anime will have, but some already say it’s twelve and some say it’s twenty-four. Don’t believe anything until it’s actually confirmed!Read More
Hmm, it’s not bad, not bad at all. I was put off at first when I read the plot. I thought that it was going to be another one of those morbid shows, but it wasn’t all that bad. I suppose it isn’t a bad thing to have to zombie shows running this season, even though this one isn’t half as good as Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? of the Dead.
The artwork is actually pretty impressive. It is thoroughly detailed and it contains a lot of great scenes. It came is no surprise to me that there were a few ecchi scenes mixed in, after all… it’s kind of a horror anime, isn’t it? I think that ecchi and horror goes hand in hand, just look at High School of the Dead, exact same thing with the exact same chemistry, and it became a hit because of that.
The story is pretty intriguing. Chihiro, the protagonist, who seems to be into necrophilia, only has eyes for zombies. The story starts when his cat suddenly gets hit by a car, so he attempts to resurrect it as a zombie using an old book to guide him. This is when he meets a young, cute girl by the name of Rea, a girl with issues of her own. They seemed to hit it off pretty well too.
Believe it or not, but I do recommend this show strongly. It has a lot of unexpected comedy, horror, romance and ecchi, which I believe is a pretty darn good mixture to create a hit. It is too early to tell right now, but I still have high hopes in this anime, so I will definitely be watching it, and I suggest that you do too.
Plot Summary: Chihiro Furuya, who loves zombies above all else, meets the sweet girl Rea Sanka by chance, and he ropes her into “resurrecting” his dead cat. But then Rea claims she actually has become a zombie, and asks him to take responsibility for it.Read More
