Sankarea Episode 1

I’m still kinda on the fence about blogging this show. I’ve heard it’s supposed to be good, but I just can’t buy into the premise. Let me explain. Basically, Furuya Chihiro is a dude that really likes zombies for some reason (probably something he developed when his mom died). When his cat Babu dies, he decides to try and create some ancient potion to resurrect it. While he’s testing, he meets the super popular Sanka Rea, who actually hates her life and wishes she could be reborn.

The biggest problem I have is when Chihiro says that he only wants a zombie girl. What kind of messed up show has a main character that wants so much to get freaky with a zombie girl? I think the problem just comes from the fact that I’ve never been a huge fan of zombies. Yeah yeah…zombie apocalypse movies are thrilling and whatnot, but I was never that into them. Either way, I haven’t seen anything yet to make me super interested in this show.

We got the super popular girl who seems unreachable thrown into a scenario with the guy that everyone would probably think is creepy. We even Saouji Ranko, the cousin, taking the role of the childhood friend who has feelings for Chihiro. That being said, Chihiro did have some moments that almost made me think of Araragi Koyomi. Still, I’m willing to give this a shot. As for the music, I wasn’t too impressed with the opening theme. I think that nano.RIPE did a much better job in Hanasaku Iroha than this…but then again, that song took a few listens for me to like, so we’ll see. The ending sounded nice…it’s lighter than the stuff I’d normally listen to, though, so I probably wouldn’t invest too much into it. It was still a good song, though. Next week looks to be an insight into Rea’s home life, so it should be interesting.
