Sankarea Episode 7 Discussion
May 17, 2012 10:11 AM
THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
This episode definitely so far was done well in terms of MOE and Ranko's past with Chihiro. I find they did Ranko's family rather very well. Ranko's past in terms of setup was colored brilliantly fine. In due part to the graveyard scenes.
About the beginning, it was very nice and smart to do the following setup in the spoiler
The MOE and the relationship stemming from it was far more emphasized than the manga. Loli Ranko is a totally HNNNNNGGGGHHH very strongly and this episode clearly shows of Ranko's cute side as a kid.
It clearly shows that despite having issues, Ranko manages to get used to the horror movies of Chihiro in the spoiler
That being said I find Ranko' comforting Chihiro as he cried was MOE itself. Such a strong scene emotionally. I did not think of Chihiro as that much of a cry baby but it shows he GREW SOME BALLS. He never cried like he did on that part except maybe for Babu TBH.
About flashback take 1, the first serious flashback is the official meeting between Chihiro and Ranko in the spoiler
Like Rea in the hydrangeas, Ranko was cute during her loli age. The most significant next event is none other than in the spoiler
Shows her nicely at her primed age. A few years after having Ranko. If you notice from the part of the present, she is kind fatter. Right?
About back the present take 1, one the nicest things when it happens is Chihiro's friend making fun of Ranko x Chihiro in the spoiler
About the flashback take 2, the second part of the past was OVER 9000 OMG MOE I DIE! *heart stopped* *heart starts again* GOSH! Ranko so cute and with that skirt with those colors in the spoiler
The part in the spoiler
About present take 2, the start of it was shocking. Chihiro x Ranko in the spoiler
About the REJECTION! YES! RANKO IS REJECTED in the spoiler
About the preview, expect MASS fan service of Ranko in the spoiler
the father arc might start judging from his expression here. Can’t wait to see this lovely moment of Chihiro x Rea. Finally KYAAAAAAA in the spoiler
BTW Image Stitches and Image Dump are done in the BLOG:
Nice ones of Ranko for the most but also Chihiro when he was a kid.
GIFs are done in the club:
Obviously loads of Ranko.

Showing the relations between zombie main guy and his childhood girl, her mother wants them together. At first she doesn't like him for always liking zombie, but she fell in love with him. She almost kissed him, because zombie girl kissed him first.
No zombie girl this ep., but will resume next ep.

Well, Ranko takes the stage this episode. Those cute little moe faces.
Take a trip down memory lane cause this episode is just that. We see some great background history of Ranko and what she was like during her cute little childhood years
Apparently, Ranko met Chihiro during their kindergarten years. It seemed that Ranko had a puppy crush on Chihiro after their initial meeting.
Well, they got along pretty well till they watched a movie like this:
seems that the move was not the last time they see each other. They eventually meet again but Chihiro is still obsessed with zombies. During a trip to a video store, they are threatened by a fierce dog but Chihiro protects his friend. Dero..dero. I think she might still be in love with him?
Great lighthearted episode ^_^
And yup...inb4 love triangle, zombie fight, and all that good stuff.

CanisTomek said:I am just wondering if they will do this scene from the manga:
I must admit this episode was really well done. Oh, and ENGRISH dubbing in the Dawn of the Dead, was hilarious :D
About the preview... Do you know that Ranko's fanservice is in fact in oryginal material, but You won't find those in scanlations? So where is it? Those scenes were added alongside with the release of the second volume. Luckly Studio Deen didn't forget about those changes:)

Shih said:I have calculated that 1/4 blood relation is not significant thus why the parents do not consider close enough to be incest.
Parents who promote incest... hehe o_o
I do think that Chihiro still does not give a rat's ass about Ranko. He only likes Rea. It's also pretty ironic that for most girls not losing is being the first kiss of a guy and that Chihiro already had his. So Ranko LOST already as she will never be #1 kiss for Chihiro.

Huge fan of this episode. Love Ranko. Poor girl. Seeing her past and how she was in love with Chihiro from the start was crazy. Can't believe it, didn't even think she liked him!

If Chihiro's father is Wanko's father's brother, why do they have different last names?
I'd really like Wanko to win. I can only hope that Rea will eventually decay and forever stay dead. A little cousin on cousin wincest action will only make this series better.

Hakuromatsu said:Oh wow, my mistake. That's even better. Less DNA defaults.
I have calculated that 1/4 blood relation is not significant thus why the parents do not consider close enough to be incest.
It's actually only 1/8th. First cousins are third-degree relatives.
choyos said:Ideally there is this rumour going around that women with bigger breasts tend to form the big families. Ideally Ranko is viewed exactly as a wife ideal in form and body based on that and the whole big breasts FAD. You can see all the marriage fuss around and set-ups in this episode to convey that.
So Ranko LOST already as she will never be #1 kiss for Chihiro.
I think Ranko is a more likable character than Rea (more noticeable in the anime), sadly Chihiro doesn't allow himself to see her in that way.
Ranko will loose unless she makes some major personality changes to be less annoying to him and more like Rea... but then she would just be another air-head with big boobs.
I don't think he cares about the kiss situation as much as the fact that Ranko is too "unlady like" towards him (I don't really think he care about the cousin situation either)
That being said Chihiro does care a lot about the kiss and Rea. His failure to realize that is plaguing this show. That is what the problem is. Once he realizes, he will cherish the kiss from Rea more.

Ranko met Chihiro when she was in Kindergarten,
Ranko and Chihiro met 2 years later, and Chihiro was then 5
Ranko is one year older than Chihiro.
This means that Ranko should have been about 4 when in kindergarten... does this number sound a little low to anybody? I thought that was more pre-school age...
In Sweden you are allowed to be in kindergarten up the the age of 5. When you're 6 you go into pre-school and 7 is the mandatory elementary school.

prismheart said:Actually, they'll have to make us feel like Rea won because of any reason other than "she's a zombie and he's moe for zombies". Considering Rea has been pretty much a walking set of boobs with no spine whatsoever I'm not expecting much.
They'll need to spend a lot of time on Rea if they want it to feel like Rea is the winner over Ranko. After this episode Ranko seems like the best girl.
