it's the trend nowadays. Funny that 10~20 years ago the childhood friend is most likely the main female protagonist, but now they are like the most friendzoned characters.

In this case, they are first cousins. Also, most first cousins end up as childhood friends, as far as I've witnessed. So if the world ends up with first cousins ending up together on most occasions, then the world would be a very interesting place.

Ranko did get fleshed out more, so I feel sympathy for her. The speech concerning how dramas have the girl hating the guy first was an attempt to justify the scene; however, in most animes, the young childhood meeting always ends up with the guy saving the girl from some frivolous thing, which then makes the girl absolutely fall in love with the guy because of frivolous thing.

Anyway, a decent episode, but the lack of Rea made the episode feel like something was missing. It felt more like a side story instead of Sankarea.

But that dog could have mounted her and eat her !

In any case it wasn't so bad with this scenario because she did lose interest in him after she got to know him better the first time and learn that he's the farthest thing from a 'cool' kid.

Now I'm torn- I think Ranko is good for Chihiro to get him off his unproductive butt and counter his anti-socialism (as a kid), but I don't think Chihiro would be good for Ranko... Quite opposite from the 'mutual beneficial' relationship that Chihiro had with Rea at the start.

P.S - Chihiro was pretty cute as a kid

This episode centered around Wanko. She isn't a very interesting character, but she's alright.
Next episode we're back at zombie-moe again.

Ranko kinda reminded me a little of Ohana from Hanasaku Iroha.
So she and Furuya were childhood friends...
The flashbacks to their childhood days was nice to watch.
The failed kiss attack made her even more determined to win over Rea.
This was a pretty uneventful episode.

Wow Chihiro got hooked on zombies before he was even 5. Lack of Rea was upsetting, but it did help with character development for Wanko.

@mochi-chan: loli-Wanko has an inferior body, but even better for her adult version is that she kept true to her feeling, while as a kid let them go almost immediately

well..i'm a girl...and 2D characters having a good body doesn't.."attract" me or w/e since it's just drawing to me.
I like chibi Wanko just because she was less abrasive when she was a kid.

Admiring something beautiful doesn't really have anything to do with sexual preferences

I enjoyed ep 7. I missed Rea, for sure, but Ranko/Wanko is great in her own way. I just spent the whole ep admiring Yahagi Sayuri's voice work.

no actually it's not about sexual preferences..i just don't know how to put it into word.....i just don't pay attention to 2D characters body shape or if their body is hot or not or w/e when i watch anime....that's the best I can put it.

A so called "glamorous body" offers more curvature and requires a fine balance in the physique and a lot more skill to draw, and richness to feast one's eyes, something impossible for childish, not to mention that the later have such a poor and simplistic look that is repelling an artist's from his canvas... same of course is true for the opposite sex too.

The only merit in having childish looking and behaving characters is that they allude to naivety and innocence, but visually do not offer the same variety as adult males and females.

Or visit a museum or a gallery, unless the artist had some fetish or specialized subject, you won't be able to find many children depicted in any art-form.

In Germany it is illegal at least for first degree relatives... recently the country imprisoned a man for maintaining a consensual sexual relationship with his sister... but mysteriously the sister was found innocent

Cousins I have no idea, at least it legal to marry one in UK or Italy, I am acquainted with a person that has done so.

In Greece I am not aware of the legal status but it is socially unacceptable engage in any form of sexual activity with even non-blood related relatives.
