Sankarea – 05

Sanka has stopped moving and Furuya is concerned she’ll rot away if he doesn’t do something, but in the meantime he must help his family clean the temple grounds, so he turns up the A/C and stashes her in his closet. Gramps mentions seeing not only Babu, but ‘Sada’ alive, having mistaken Rea for her, as well as a ‘resurrection potion’. Wanko stops by and enters Furuya’s room to borrow a DVD, but she is attacked by Rea, who starts licking her chest. Hearing Wanko scream, Furuya rushes to his room, where Rea pounces on and starts kissing him.

Well, the zombie cat is officially out of the bag: the first Wanko hears about Sanka Rea going missing is the same day she finds out where Rea went: to Furuya’s house. This week she plays the ‘first victim’, although rather than going for the brain, apparently the hungry Rea can be satiated by persperation coming from Wanko’s rack, or Furuya’s saliva. Either way, she’s acting very frisky, but her motivations are probably more primal – requiring sustenance – than amorous.

It’s interesting how she said nothing, but only made a bunch of zombie-like sounds. Will her personality return? Of course, most importantly, now somebody knows he’s resurrected a girl. He’ll have to tell her the whole story about Rea’s father and falling from a cliff if he’s ever going to get her silence, because at this point he can limit the exposure to just Wanko. But with Rea’s father already issuing a fatwa against him, this is one more example of mo’ zombies mo’ problems.
