Wanko is maximally cute. And episode 5 is quite eye opening (also in the source material but it just seems more intense animated).

Wow, I almost died from boredom during this episode
No, actually I didn't, because I skipped the majority of it. But really the only interesting part seemed to be Ranko and Rea first encounter, if I can call it that
I hope next episode they will progress with the plot and don't waste an entire episode to figure out what Rea need to eat!

Yeah, 1 chapter = 1 episode, it's been a long time I'm done with the original, I'm only watching the Ranko scenes now...

You are not reassuring me at all that the series will get back on track, you know?

Is it even 1 chapter per episode now? I could've sworn the chapter this was based on extended into what was shown in the previews.

My only hope, but always rarely happened, is that they do not rush out and compact/crammed everything in 12/13 episodes.
That's what everyone hopes for! But the funny thing is that with this show people are complaining about the adaption moving too slowly! Amazing lol. Also if people can see where it will end @ this pace than that is more than likely the ending, and for all you know the Sankarea team already knows they have a second season, not all split cour shows are announced as such.

Define 'back on track', as technically, it never derailed in the first place.

And skipping stuff is not a good idea, as details that seem trivial (or even boring) now will become very important later on.

I'm pretty sure all of this happened in one chapter, namely chapter 5.

Except.. .that *was* the plot That's one of the things I like about japanese entertainment (or foreign works in general) ... they don't have that recent US phenomenon of attention deficit "run!!!! run faster!! boom!" slideshow effect.

TL;DR

I think the pacing is fine. I'm just a little frustrated that Furuya seems to be dragging his heels about looking for a solution to the problem. If I, hypothetically, had a girlfriend decomposing in my bedroom that I *might* have a chance of saving, I would skip sleep and chores until the more urgent matter was resolved.

Ops
Surely I was not expecting anything like "run!!!! run faster!! boom!".
It's just that I would have preferred that they'd have kept the prologue atmosphere, where they mixed tragic tones with light-hearted tones. Obviously not as tragic as the beginning, but that had a very good balance.
Instead the feeling I'm having now it's that it slowed a bit down to a "one-girl-show". Like Nazo No Kanojo X or Tasogare Otome x Amnesia. Nothing wrong about that. I like those shows.
But in this episode the "one-girl-show" basically doesn't show up, so to me the show lost a lot of its charm in one go. So my 'back on track' means something like focusing on Rea and not to the supporting cast that doesn't seem so solid. Except Ranko and Ranko's .. but that's another matter.
I don't need to say that I didn't read the manga so my expectations come exclusively from how the show evolved so far.

Ah, I see... yeah, it did seem to skip a beat or defuse the focus - I can't deny that. (And I've not read anything but the summaries of the first few events just to see if I was really interested)

Episode count, from relentlessness: "Sankarea (13 Episodes, 6 BDs/DVDs, 25 + 3)." That's six BDs, five of them containing two eps and the last one containing three. Whether or not ep13 will be considered an OVA, I don't know.

I was interested that some viewers were bored by ep5. I didn't feel that, but I tested my feelings by watching again, and then once more: nope, not bored.

The only reservation I had was frustration that he was not immediately devoting himself to working on a solution to save Sanka. The housecleaning, etc., set up a knot of frustration in me. Maybe that was the point.

Same here.... the episode was interesting but I did spend much of it thinking "um, medical emergency here?"

Well, I think his mind was a little too preoccupied for him to worry about that. It wasn't until her rigor mortis started kicking in that the coin dropped, but before he could really get to it, they just had to keep him busy with trivial chores. Then again, he also didn't want them to suspect anything, so it's not like he could say "I have a zombie girl lying in my room whom I have to think of a preservation method for."

Of course, you could claim that he could've thought of that sooner, given the zombie-freak he is, but I guess Rea's 'hot' body charm simply caught him off-guard.

Here is Chihiro with a really urgent matter to attend to, and his family unknowingly traps him with a day full of inescapable cleaning duties. Well, it's not like he has other options if he wanted to keep Rea a secret from them. Anyway, he's got some explaining to do now that there's a witness. Who nearly became a victim. It does make some sense that Ranko smelling like Hydrangea would cause Rea to lick her. And that kiss seems awfully long...

I guess they're really trying to stick to the one chapter, one episode approach, huh. They even fit in some anime-original scenes early in the episode to keep from moving into the next chapter. Well, not that it's a bad thing, because those scenes served to explain just how the student body at Rea's school perceives Rea. As long as there is hope that the later chapters will get animated too, probably in a second season, barring any anime-original ending.

The revelation in the preview segment about the inspiration for Mero's name took me by surprise, though.

Episode 05

lol, what was with the serious zombie pregnancy discussion earlier? I was only half joking.... or is that "half-serious"

And I see some worries about the pacing.... I'll tell you what I was worried about, where my ARIA-SAMA nOOOOOOOO I can't go an entire ep without herrrrrrrrrr

I'll tell you one thing though, the scene I really liked was this:

Watching her tip toe around like that, that scene I was holding my breath, mouth partially open, oh man she almost single-handedly gave me a foot fetish

lol, actually, I want to get current with a lot of anime before I consider changing my sig again, I still have to watch Mysterious Girlfriend seX, Medaka's Boobs, Nyarko-chan, even Acchi Cootchie, oh my

Still, I had a thought of waiting a few years from now and post that above pic on a hentai forum and ask what anime is that from just for the lolz, to someone new to Sankarea, it really looks like... assault

Wouldn't a likely answer be that she went no bra? Rea did rip both the apron and the shirt, so..... considering Wanko's attire, I think she really did go no-bra wait, never mind, I must be thinking of something else

True, huh? I actually find myself looking forward to these MeroMero previews, I guess they help make up her low screentime
