The setup continues, and we see Rika appealing and gathering all the pieces she can. In order to escape from Takano's strong will she will need to obtain every resource she can, and in this episode we can see her finally obtaining

Spoiler for this episode:


My only real doubt: Is Takano completely oblivious to this setup as she seems to be?

Other than that, Higurashi continues to be with Higurashi. I'm cringling in anticipation for the next episode

A really speedy epsiode, with quite a few things cut out and some events changed to cut corners. Overall it doesn't affect the story as much, but the famous scene with Tomitake and the rest(after Ooishi and Akasaka showed up) being cut is quite a disappointment.

Also, most of the stratergies are actually thought up by Akasaka...such as when they have Irie explain about the telephone ring message, it's actually all Akasaka...

Wow, that's a disappointment that Akasaka's importance was decreased. :-(

At any rate, very interesting episode! Seeing Ooishi at the graveside was kinda touching. It was a stretch from "Do you know Oyashirosama?"-Ooishi. :-)

Maybe they wanted to make Irie seem less like a complete airhead?

Very good ep. I especially loved Keiichi's motivational speech. I wish I could understand the conversation between Oishi and the Sonozakis better, but this episode definitely seemed to weigh heavily on Oishi's reasons to want victory.

Hopefully any corner cutting is so they have more time for the action scenes. This episode is pure build up.

Besides the overall corner cutting, and the "too" smooth situation, a good episode.

I don't think Takano would care if she died after killing Rika

Very nice episode. I'll really need to wait for the subs for this one (so much talking, meaning less understand in my part), but I think the pace was done rather well despite all that talk. The setup is pretty much complete. I guess we'll probably be seeing the festival in the next episode, so I really can't wait to see how the setsup will be executed

I absolutely loved the little plan devised by Keiichi and Satoko. It made me laugh.

thanks for the preview link!
once again, has no idea what they are talking about, but thinks it sounds interesting enough...i mean, the "ah hah..." sounds that they were making sounded extremely hilarious. Of course, the reverting back to dark Rika at the end was priceless too.
I think the angry Takano is certainly a hint

i have this eerie lurking feeling that they will screw up the epic fighting scenes.


You know, ‘tap tap, step step.’

and yes.. to me they screwed up the end of minagoroshi... like it could gone better..



- ah one more thing , are their senses still connected? (rika and hanyuu ) -

I wonder if they will reach Tomitake's part in next epsiode...if they do I sure hope that famous scene will be kept intact

Hanyuu is so cute in her pink overalls. It is a shame they do not match her horns.

I detect a possible flaw in Satoko and Keiichi plans.

rather late *sigh*
Episode 20: screencaps
not much time for a bullet summary.

quite fast episode, but they were able to squeeze the most important points.
