A very Wanko-focused episode this week. Rea doesn’t even show up. As Chihiro helps out at her family’s inn, we get a glimpse at the history the two have together. Kind of a cool story…Wanko starts out seeing Chihiro as a brave prince when he helps her in the graveyard, but this is only situational as he turns out to be just as much of a crybaby as she is. But then the showdown with the dog rekindles her original feelings. Not bad…Although, I’m biased to say she would be better off with Chihiro because of my disdain towards the zombie fetish.
I’m curious about just how dense Chihiro is. That almost kiss at the end of the episode should have made it pretty clear how Wanko feels about him…did he notice? Does he realize it? Also, the show kinda jumped over that bit at the end of last week’s episode. Does that mean it wasn’t that big a deal? Or is there something lurking under the surface that Chihiro himself doesn’t know? Rea is back next week, so we would hopefully get our answers. Also looks like her father might be making another entrance next week.
