Wow. If I understood it right, I think a lot of what I'd thought is true. For instance
Spoiler:
As for why the vaccine hadn't been widely distributed, I think that would have been dangerous in this case. You'd basically be telling the people that they were sick and didn't know it, and that the right amount of tension could make any one of them snap and butcher their friends. Not only would many people protest and resist in disbelief, but belief would mean suddenly discovering that everyone you know could be a killer with you high on their list. Basically, if anyone knew what was really going on, the result could very well decay into an absolute bloodbath. The government can't openly pursue treatment, but if they don't go fast they'll have to take measures that go far beyond any form of taboo. It would be far too easy afterwards to paint the government as an evil that must be destroyed. No telling how far you could ride that wave.

Hmm. This only further reinforces my maxim: DO NOT TRUST THE GOVERNMENT.

Especially one that doesn't mind that an atrocity will fulfill some crazy bitch's personal vendetta.

That Droopy-san is the villain should not come as a surprise to anyone. Now;

Spoiler:


I don't think this is earth-shaking, but back-track a little bit: Did anyone notice that
Spoiler:
The plot thickens!

no, it is not really related.
As you can see with Tomitake, the injection had a very fast effect on him.

Meanwhile, Keiichi was gradually becoming mad, and he wasn't going LEVEL 5 soon after Irie's shot. Irie probably did the same for Satoko: maybe some medecine to prevent some symptom which could appear, just in case.

That is possible and in my opinion. Hahaha I should try and find those episodes as quickly as possible.

Hahaha, someone needs to do a cross over of Motoko from GITS and Takano. That would be pretty interesting.

That theory is possible, and that thought has been in my head for a while since season 1. (When Keichii was injected by the syringe by Rena and Mion with a few moments later he dies in a phone booth with his neck slitted by his nails. That's how the event happened from Keichii's point of view). In season one after Keichii dies in the phone booth, they stated that there was no traces of injection of some sort and the message in the bed room clock (where Rena and Mion were killed by Keichii again from what see were shown). He wrote down that he was injected with something and yet there were no evidence he was injected with something.


With that I can't wait for the final arc to happen. I think there will be a few original "extra arcs" after this (one example of the "extra arcs" has Rika as the main character and she is the "villian").

nope after this arc ends it goes straight to the final PC ver. arc (but I'm still hoping that the anime will use the True end (PS2) and not the good end)

At first I thought that that was a red herring. Later, we learn that he really never was injected by anything, so I paid it no mind. But from the earlier TIPS along with all the mentions of a disease being responsible for the death in Hinamizawa, you can conclude that Tomitake was indeed killed by a disease that is not known to general doctors.

First off, big thanks to this forum and Klashikari's blog-work; without either I'd still be relatively clueless, at least up until this season when things really started making sense. Your contributions are greatly appreciated; this is (aside from Elfen Lied) my favorite anime, and I needed help with much of it as I never played the game.

ANYWAY: One thing that is bugging me... and it's so minor, yet really compelling: In the OP, where Rika picks up a golden lump and looks at it, I am SURE that it must be significant or else they wouldn't have included it so as to be seen in every opening! What's up with that?

I was spoiled in Season One by watching it all at once (several times LOL); this waiting for the next episode is KILLING me

You'll know what it is when the anime gets to it.

Isn't the golden lump just one of the worlds (or 'fragments of time' as the OP song puts it) that was shown in the Minagoroshi prologue?

If you mean in the shot JUST before Rika's "golden nugget" I always figured it had to be Satoko. Thanks for raising this doubt

The OP is one of my favorites ever (as was Season 1) and I always look closely (when I'm not reading subtitles ). Just goes to show that EVERY DETAIL is important. The only problem is that you never really know what to believe.

Season 1's ending "Can you believe it?" is right on the money LOL Takano is a great case in point: suspected her; then put aside as too flakey; then suspicious again; then just a casualty; now...

I'd shout "make it stop!!!" but I don't want it to

That's an interesting theory; I think judging from:
Quote:

that the answer must be spoileriffic. I guess I should have asked that in "General" but it occurred to me whilst typing (I'm avoiding other subforums while the season is ongoing).

Sounds like it's the "right" lump/world?
Considering how Tomitake could come up healthy, I think some people are overthinking it a bit. There's all sorts of different bacteria and viruses naturally in every body. You won't notice an extra one unless you're at a point of infection where the malicious nature is apparent, and at this point they don't have any reason to suspect illness of this sort. The past "disappearances" have been completely lost, so there's no record if previous victims showed the symptoms. With a suicide like this, they wouldn't likely even think of looking for an infection. Also, the government has more than enough reason to try and keep any information about a disease or illness related to this death secret. In this situation, I strongly suspect that the government has a great deal of cooperation from the hospitals, not to mention at least a few nurses and orderlies directly under their command.
