Sankarea episode 07

Hmm, not quite what I had in mind, but it turned out to be a very amusing episode. I was pretty convinced that this episode would’ve been about Rea-chan and her inability to control her monstrous strength. Still, I’m pretty satisfied. It was a lot of fun to learn more about Chihiro and Ranko’s past.

I’m pretty sure that everyone already knew that Chihiro was obsessed by zombies ever since he was a little boy, but how well do we really know him? We learned that he used to be bullied by the same people that envy him today. Sounds very familiar, doesn’t it? Nerds get beaten up a lot in school, but they are usually the ones that end up successful in life.

Chihiro wasn’t really that much different. It’s too soon to say whether or not he will become successful, but he’s on the right path. He understands the human body to a certain degree and he’s always anxious to learn more. Mind you, I sure as hell wouldn’t want someone like that as my doctor. I’d probably return with stitches all over my body.

It seems that Ranko-chan has been wrestling with her feelings for Chihiro for years now. I knew that she had feelings for him, but come on… How could you feel that way about a person for that many years and not do something about it? They are pretty darn close too. But what Ranko-chan couldn’t do in all those yours, Rea-chan did in only a couple of days. I can imagine how that would hurt.

There’s one thing that puzzles me though. Those two, Ranko and Chihiro, are cousins. Is it legal for cousins to get ‘together’ in Japan? I’d say that it’s more than just frowned upon, and still I wish her the best. I’m definitely rooting for her, despite the fact that it may (or may not) be against the law. Things will only get more complicated from here on out, especially since Ranko declared ‘war’ against Rea-chan over Chihiro.
