wow, rea's dad was being EXTRA CREEPY during the opening sequences >.<

and LOLOLOLOLOLOL mero-chan and wanko singing the OP in the car was SO DAMN CHEESY

very nice backstory episode, especially on rea's part. it really showed how twisted rea's life at home was before she met chihiro and became a zombie :/

also how chihiro found the book of resurrection, and pretty awesome how chihiro and rea actually met before the beginning of the story. the end really tied in well with the first episode

Nice OVA... And uncensored goodness... :D

Anyway, how the hell did Rea and Chihiro meet at the end, they were at-least 200 miles apart?

Rea was on a vacation sort of so her father could take pictures, same thing goes for Chihiro, he went on vacation to help with the cleaning. Guess that they weren't so far away from each other.

I found it odd how Furuya doesn't watch his zombie movies in full screen. What's the point in windowed mode if he likes them so much?

Haha. I was also bothered by it. But maybe he have watched it already that's why he did not put it in full screen.

So wait, did the Rea family move closer to the school? I thought Chihiro and Co. traveled all day, or at least hours by car. I'm a bit confused with all the geography now..

Oh, and good ep, etc.

Now we know how Chihiro got the revive book and how Rea was led to the place where she wanted to commit suicide.
Also we now know for sure the Chihiros mom definitely has a more important role to play in the series.

PS, never read the manga or anything but it is obvious that she is was a zombie...

"That's why whenever I remember that trip, I think of my mother."

Very interesting side story. It appears Rea and Chihiro already did meet before, but may have not seen each other's faces in detail. This story also brings forward more evidence, and more questions about the zombie theory involving Chihiro and Mero's mother. We also get to see how Chihiro was actually able to get a hold of that book.

This wasn't in the manga, but any expansion of the backstory is good, considering that the mangaka himself is involved with the anime adaptation process.

Rea's Dad should burn in hell such a sick bastard. I was very surprised when they showed her nips but overall great OVA.

Singing the opening only works if the opening is awesome!

Anyways, nice episode. It says a lot about a show when pretty much nothing significant is revealed yet you enjoy it anyways.

So,Mero is in elementary school,I thought it was middle school.Or this episode is before the main events happened so that's why she was said to be in elementary school & is now in middle school.

Uncensored episode.

I thought this episode was actually pretty decent. Compared to the latter 3/4 of the actual anime.

Nice prequel on everything, the origins of the book and what I thought was a bit more confirmed that the mother was a zombie or at least an experiment as well "with the cold hands, and not able to feel warmth and having cold hands" either way nice episode It's not 100% what Rea was actually doing in that far distant place, nor the book that well seemingly was written by their grandfather... although they're friend so it might be that and to the looks of it, the accident happened there so it might be right if you take those points in consideration.

For the rest a great backstory of the origins and a bit of fanservice!

So that's where he get the book, his mother's picture led him to it. And he seems to have met Rea before, maybe the shock and embarrassment made him forget the encounter. XD

Yeah, how the hell did that happen? They're supposed to be in some other town. When the butler said the open air bath was ready, I thought it would be somewhere within their estate. Why would she go out of town just for a regular bath.
And as I thought, it seems like the mom had turned into a zombie.
