Wait, wait...Episode 1 is 30 years after the events of Tsumihoboroshi-hen...right?

What happened to the rest of the cast?

Side-note, the OP is addictive, especially when paired with the visuals and pacing. Superb.

They'll be in episode 2 I believe. This first episode was sort of a prelude to fill in some of the holes DEEN left out and to set the mood for the show.

Shiosai pretty much nailed the point : it will probably be told in ep2 (or maybe it was already the case? Ooishi was talking about everyone, when he was asking his question to Rena)

but most likely, you can got your answer in the Demon's Script TIPS which is the aftermath of Tsumihoroboshi. (this is the main reason why Yakusamashi is for, since they didn't bother to animate this TIPS in season 1)
The TIPS can also be used as a "translation summary", since ep1 pretty much follows it.

Well, it appears that the special screening was not the first episode after all.
we will probably see it in the future.

*Waits eagerly for sub so she can comment on episode one of new season... Opening theme already moves her as it feels different from season one already* I was eager to see, and by the sounds of what Sushi said it's going to be great with this new chapter to fill the holes from the previous season. Till I can watch it all I can do is have the opening theme on loop O.o... over and over weeeee~Desu

I still don't get why Rika saved Rena, or actually how she survived to this day. I suspect that Rika would probably reveal the motive in Minagoroshi-hen, but it's still quite amazing that Rena has survived for 30 years...

Does it specifically state she is 43? Because there is no way she could only have been 13 back then.>_>;

It seems that a group called anon is doing speed sub for it, and they're releasing it in mkv. Is this confirmed or are they a new group?

Anyway, I can't wait to see this. Looks promising.

The opening sounds indescribably better in the actualy show than it did in the trailer. You really get more of the instrumentals and the full force of it here then with the awkard mixing in the PV. I especially like the part at the end with the mechnical sort of sound. There's a sense of urgency in the whole thing like they've got to get things right this time. It's still not as good as the first one though, but not terrible like I thought it was from the trailer.

The original age of the characters has always been a mystery, just like the question

"Why is Mion always walking around with her gun"

It seems no one has pointed out that it's been almost 30 years since Akasaka's visit at Hinamizawa. This episode is actually set roughly 22 years after Tsumihoroboshi's events.
