Sankarea Episode 2

So this week’s episode is a closer look into Rea’s life. We see that her father is just a little bit excessively obsessive when it comes to Rea, to the point of manipulating her life to keep her from getting close to any person or animal. It explains why someone like Rea would even remotely be interested in Chihiro. Normally, you might ask why Chihiro’s so special, but it’s obvious with Rea. She’s never been allowed to have a true friend, so meeting this person that she can secretly befriend would be a gold mine for her. That is, of course, until her father finds out.

Although she drinks the poisoned potion, I doubt it will kill her judging by the preview. It looks like next week, she’ll have another confrontation with her father which will likely turn violent and result in her death and subsequent rebirth. Honestly, I think this show is good…I want to like the show, but I just can’t get over Chihiro’s crazy zombie fetish. It’s the one dent in what I would otherwise call an enjoyable show. Maybe I’ll get used to it…we’ll have to see. Also, I was surprised Chihiro didn’t shout “It’s alive!!” when Babu came back…seems like a pretty standard reaction to bringing something to life.

  1. I have to agree with you about Chihiro’s zombie fetish. No matter how much of a zombie fan he is there is no way he can look at zombies and hope that one day he can get a zombie girlfriend. There is no way you can look at zombies in a diffrent way other than some bloody creatures which eat people’s brains!

  2. The zombie fetish is his weird character trait, I guess. That said, I do appreciate how otherwise normal he is. Take the fetish out, and he becomes a totally normal dude.

    I’m also guessing that Sanka Rea’s (I feel like I have to use the full name) motivation for becoming a zombie could be written off pretty easily. Could be something like she’s hoping that her father would stop taking the pictures if she’s dead.

    The more I watch of this show, the more I like it. The spring season is on fire!

          1. “The Ancient Greek δαίμων daimōn word denotes a “spirit” or “divine power”, much like the Latin genius or numen. Daimōn most likely came from the Greek verb daiesthai “to divide, distribute.” The Greek conception of a daimōns notably appears in the works of Plato, where it describes the divine inspiration of Socrates.”

            Yes, I know…I’m divine! 😀

  3. Maybe if he like anime instead of zombies then you would like him more.

    Next episode should be interesting. I’d like to see Rea have a confrontation with her father.
