Sankarea Episode 4

Alright, now that Rea has become a zombie, the show sorta moves on. Her parents have formed a united front against Chihiro and Wanko has become suspicious. Plenty of fanservice this week in the form of naked Rea as well as amusing antics from the crazy grandfather. And to finish things off, Rea’s body starts to feel the effects of rigor mortis (which I’ve heard about over and over again in my neuroscience classes…blah blah lack of ATP prevents the reset of actin/myosin cross-bridging). *SCIENCE ALERT*


So, I initially came to the rather obvious conclusion that eating the hydrangea leaves will help with “normalizing” the effects of the zombie process. However, if we look at the preview, Rea is still donning only a towel and seems to be moving fairly normally. Not sure if Chihiro finds a temporary fix or just manages to get some hydrangea (were there some by his house? can’t remember). Also, it looks like Wanko will discover Rea next week as well…should up the drama factor a bit. Chihiro seems to be enjoying his fetish-come-true for now, but we’ll see how long that lasts.

    That was a lot of fan service. I like the way the show is progressing but I find it strange that Rea has no problem being nude around Chihiro now. Not that i’m complaining.

      maybe turning into a zombie is like being drunk…lack of inhibitions

    Needs more magical girls and less cat boys. Toss in some vampire ninjas and I’ll be happy.
