Sankarea episode 06
Well, well, well… It’s about time that Chihiro realized what was going on. I’m willing to bet that at least nine tenth of the viewer’s knew that she had to eat a little bit of those flowers in order to regain her sanity. I wanted to say that it’s better late than never, but that kind of changes when you are dealing with a zombie that could very well tear you to pieces.
It is all good. Rea-chan regained her consciousness when she ate a little bit of that plant. It’s kind of strange that Baabu, Chihiro’s zombie cat, had to show her the way. It’s even stranger that Chihiro’s father allowed Rea to stay at their place. But the cherry on top was when Chihiro’s grandfather suddenly remembered a few things about that resurrection potion. First and foremost; it’s far from being perfect. The subject, in this case Rea-chan, has to keep eating those poisonous flowers and get a lot of exorcize in order to slow down the deterioration process. Secondly; Chihiro will now have to monitor Rea’s situation closely whilst looking for a way to perfect that potion.
Things just got a lot more complicated. Chihiro now knows that time is of the essence, Rea-chan doesn’t realize her own super strength, and poor Rank-chan is in denial about her feelings towards Chihiro, which will only cause things to get even worse. Feelings can wait, teaching Rea how to use that strength of hers in a controlled state should be a much higher priority right about now. One good punch and she could destroy houses.
What a great episode this was. I really, really enjoyed watching it. I know that some parts are a little bit predictable, like Rea having to eat those flowers to maintain her sanity, but I don’t mind. I honestly don’t mind that these little things a bit obvious, which is strange for me. I normally dislike it when I can predict important pieces of the story before they even happen. Anyway, I’m guessing that Rea-chan’s family will force themselves back into her life during the next episode. We’ll see…
