Sankarea episode 09
This episode was just one giant kick in the nuts. I was curious as hell when Chihiro got abducted by those men. I have been waiting patiently all week. I even woke up extra early just to watch this week’s episode of Sankarea, only to find out soon after that this week’s episode was just another side story.
I wanted to know what was going to happen to Chihiro and Rea, but got a dose of Mero instead. Seriously, she’s a cute girl, but I had no desire to know what she does on a day to day basis, unless it somehow involves Chihiro or Rea. Okay, okay… I liked the fact that, although in her eyes only, she seems to think that Rea-chan resembles her mother a lot. I have never seen Mero-chan as shy as that, so I admit that I enjoyed that part, but that was pretty much it. I was too disappointed to enjoy much else.
I sat here watching with a grouchy face as I saw Mero-chan and her friends interact with their teacher, whom apparently keeps her bet crocodile with her at all times. The fact that the main story got substituted with this was the hardest pill to swallow. I’m not saying that the episode was bad. I’m just saying that it betrayed all my expectations.
Wanted to see the events revolving Chihiro, Rea and Rea’s father, but got this instead. That was not funny, not funny at all. I can only hope that they will resume the story next week. I’m just happy that the total amount of episodes for this anime is still unknown. The anime could have twenty-four episodes for all we know.
