Mero calling Rea "Mama" was absolutely adorable. She got a little fleshing out as a character as well and a possibly interesting development regarding their mother...? Not really sure why they chose to air this right after that last cliffhanger episode though, especially since it seems chronologically out of order. Still a solid episode though, I enjoyed it.
Harems don't exist in America. If one guy is constantly surrounded by beautiful girls, then he's probably the gay friend.

In my opinion, in this episode is where it started to draw my attention more and get me more interested to this anime, liking it more.

But what I liked most about this episode, was how I've come to like Mero-chan...
finding out another side of her, the blushing was so cute.
And I love the fact that her and Chihiro's mother was actually a zombie.

Rea is such a good girl ^-^


I didn't like the part of Mero's friends but whatever, I'm glad the rest of it was a great satisfaction!

I liked this episode even though I was not a huge fan of Mero, but the scene in the graveyard wit Rea was one of my favorites of this show. But still this should have been an OVA or something like that.

But please get back to the main story...

before this i didint really like mero much as a character but this episode helped a lil
overall decent ep
so basicly there mom was a zombie guess that could explain his zombie obsession

"I am the bone of my sword,
Steel is my body and Fire is my blood,
I have created over a thousand blades,
Unknown to Death,
Nor known to Life,
Have withstood pain to create many weapons,
Yet, those hands will never hold anything,
So as I pray, unlimited blade works"

Did the anime need to dedicate an entire episode to Mero to explain that Mero sees similarities between her mother and Rea? Good story telling would have added subtle scenes about Mero during the previous few episodes to lend some Mero characterization. In addition, I think I liked Mero better before watching this episode. At least, before this episode, Mero had an air of mystery, but now, I know that she has a dull personality and her only purpose is to tell the audience that her grandfather had experimented on her mother.

I really enjoy all the unique camera shots, but what a waste the story has become.


Are you god damn kidding me? Did you seriously not pay attention to what you wrote? If you're gonna put spoilers put them in the goddamn tags.

Was more a filler but actually quite liked it, to have a bit more time on Mero and well the ending was just excellent! Nice episode either way!

The first half of this chapter was a utter and complete waste of time and animation. Who the hell cares about Mero's classmates?!

The second half and the encounter between Sanka and Mero reveals some info. Mum was obviously a zombie and knowing what we know from the grandfathers book, it seems that he might have helped her (or was the one responsible for reviving her).

What I'm starting to wonder is if perhaps Chihiro's/Mero's mum is also not Sanka's mother? Maybe she was with pedo Dad, died, was revived and then hooked up with Chihiro's dad? Which would make them siblings then.

All speculation on my part. I wonder how it ends.

Maybe someone mentioned this, but wouldn't it be a bad idea to leave a cold blooded alligator in a dark bag all day? I guess one could assume that she would leave it under a UV lamp all night, but it feels like it just wasn't well though out.

Meru is nice a nice character
"Urushibara Ruka. The mannerisms and voice of a woman... No... More feminine than any woman. But he's a guy. Taller than Mayuri, but so very thin... But he's a guy. Looks great in a miko outfit... But he's a guy. It's already twilight And yet, it's so hot. The cicadas are crying. But... He's a guy."

Yeah, I don't get why they showed it immediately after the previous episode. But it was a nice episode regardless.
Mero kind of reminds me of Chiaki from Minami-ke, but without the snark. Her character design, her personality, and now how she sees her mother in someone else (the father in Chiaki's case).

Wat? Filler episode in the middle of the action? O.o
Why it wasn't episode 8?
Not bad anyway.

Meh, kinda boring watching these kids basically doing nothing for the first half. Second half was a bit more interesting, so was their mother a zombie too?

Nice episode. I somehow missed the part where Chihiro told his father and Mero that Rea was a zombie though. It could be that only Mero knows, but than the leaf munching at dinner would have probably raised more eyebrows at dinner with dad. Or perhaps dad knows as well, because he used to be married to one, and just doesn't ask questions.

In @s2012k1993 's defence, how was that not completely obvious from what we saw this episode?
