The answer also seems to lie in Rika seeking out the help of her friends and not abandoning herself to her fate.

Trust in your friends. Don't keep your own misery to yourself. Your friends may have answers that you yourself are unable to see. Hauuuu.

Can you believe in it?
So, the entire series is a lame after school special about friendship wrapped within a moe and murder package?

well, if the marker is left, the police might deduce Rena and Mion aren't related to the murders at all. (Lots of people are supposed to know about Mion's pranks. if you add the marker, they might think Keiichi was dumb mad, while they tried a prank. If there isn't any marker, Keiichi's madness might be not the sole explanation for the murders)

i believe they left the tape around the clock to emphasis the "conspiracy" of the village, along with the ripped part of Keiichi's letter.

No purpose except to give an "open end" thing (as it is okay to loop all the time -__-"), and probably a definitive proof that Rika is reset the time.

Well then, I wonder really just how many episodes are left? Since surely we must be near Watanagashi by now. Anyone have an idea on what chapter the anime ended on and how many chapters total there are in Minagoroshi-hen?

Ho well, looks like i stated something to hasty anyway.

Well, guess thats what happened to poor Rina this ep.

It does seem like Sonozaki or a branch of them was involved.

Which means we'll probably see the end of Minagoroshi either this or next week...

nope. there are 29 chapters in Minagoroshi-hen.
actually, the "chair" scene happened during Chapter 10 (damn... Birth and Death BGm works wonder here)
The "plan" with the child protection agency scene occurs during Chapter 11
The encounter with the Child Agency Attendant, and their "failure" chat happens in chapter 12

as you can see, chapters length aren't exactly constant. There are 17 chapters left then.
So i believe they will take at least 3-4 episodes more for Minagoroshi-hen.
3 is the strict minimum, as i don't see how they will finish Satoko's case, and the batshit later on within only 2 episodes. (Especially that the latter chapters are really dense and stuffed. Sheesh, the last 3 chapters require a whole episode by themselves. that means 14 chapters prior this in only 1 ep. impossible.)

nipa~! I don't think I'd call it lame. And as Klashikari said, that's a theme. It's not all ice cream and lollipops. Your comment made me laugh out loud. Thanks for that!

That was actually pretty funny.

And if you stopped watching after the first season, then yes it was.

But the second season takes the series in a slightly different direction -- who's killing Rika? Why is she being murdered?

In a few alternate worlds, we've seen that the population of Hinamizawa dies in what is termed a "volcanic gas eruption." Is that really the case? If not, then what's going on?

Hey! After following this forum a while, I decided to register^^'
This episode was excelent! I'm just sad that I was already spoiled, and that I'm still spoiled...

And since you were talking about K1 delusions, there's something no one talked about and I think I missed something... Why the hell does Teppei revive on tatarigoshi? There's any hint already, and I missed it?

And there's only one thing that annoys me in that episode... K1's hand on 12:50. Urgh! x_x

He really did kill Teppei, Satako was just too lost at that point to realize that he was dead.

Hee... I'm sometimes just too naive to believe in everyone... Though I do remember K1 making sure that he was alive, it might be only his paranoid too...

Thankyou!^^'

Keiichi really did kill Teppei in Tatarigoroshi-hen.
It probably wasn't his imagination that the corpse was missing.

In Tsumihoroboshi-hen Rena killed Teppei and Rina.
Their bodies were moved by the Sonozakis.

So back to Tatarigoroshi-hen, we can assume Mion knew Keiichi was going to kill Teppei because he was behaving like Satoshi.
So she had the body moved.
Keiichi's friends made up him being at the festival to provide an alibi.

This episode was so ridiculous. The classroom fighting scene was just... awful, so out-of-character (well, this characters in this series act out-of-character so many times that maybe it doesn't count at all).

To add a comment about this: Keiichi literaly ask to Mion if she can do something, so Teppei would be the next target of the "curse".
Since Shion (and not mion) received the phone call and knew what happened to satoshi, she warned Mion, who just joined the 2 elements, and deduce Keiichi will bash Teppei to death.

Ι edited the post, saying that it the whole classroom scene was completely out-of-character, and it's ridiculous for kids to just decide that they're going to kill somebody. And the most ridiculous thing is that Shion hit Keiichi with the chair! Nice friends.

But what do I expect? I think that the mystery in the series is very intriguing, the whole idea of Rika's struggle through unlimited worlds, but the plot progression and the events are many times ridiculous, don't make sense, and are completely unrealistic.

If you've seen the first season then you should know that there's something causing abnormal behavior. People clawing out their throats, hallucinating, hearing footsteps behind them when no one is there etc.
