This episode was another dose of different as we learned the origin of Miki and how she came to meet the crew. You see, while the other three girl’s started out in the school, Miki was at a mall with a friend during the outbreak. Because of this she had to go through a long ordeal to meet them and why could they just not set this up in the first place? The series would have been fine to just start here, instead we’re on episode 4 with a two episode flashback. I read the manga, I know how different this could be!
That being said, I don’t have much of a problem with how it is. While it feels a little sloppy it definitely still does the job. And the job? Makes me hate these characters who are obviously ingratiated in a pop culture with Stephen King novels but can’t seem to imagine that leaving a room when you have food and water and waiting to stubbornly adventure with more than one person is a much better idea. Miki’s friend really wanted to leave and she needed to get the stick out of her ass. If she’d have waited, she and Miki would both likely be with the girls.
I just don’t understand how people can be so stupid as to fight for some blind independence. How about you enjoy your life and be patient so the threat lessons? Zombies begin to disburse, you get a better calmer attitude, and you fucking jet it. That’s when you explore you fool not because you’re bored and sure this is no way to live. There’s a ton of books and obviously you have freaking batteries.
This town remains suspicious as hell. They have running water in buildings long after the outbreak. My personal theory is that it’s the equivalent of the Raccoon City and they were overtly prepared because they were experimenting largely in this city with zombie stuff.
I liked seeing more of Miki, and learning the origin of Kuromaru in this take. Seeing how everyone has come together in this alternate tale is great. While I know next episode will be a flashback I can’t hate it, afterall who can hate watching the completely existent teacher freak out over the state of her car?
Haha, she’s probably an illusion.
