Good episode, though it didn't have a Higurashi feel to it for some reason.
I am sad the series is coming to its end.
No stop reminding me! There's plenty of eps left

Well but again I guess it has to end of else Rika and friends will continue to suffer. Things looks like they're about in place.

Pretty good episode, probably one of the best of season two that I've seen so far. I guess the stage is set for the four episode run to the end. Its kind of sad to see the end of a great series approaching so fast.

Likes
- Keichii and Satoko laughing before the break
- Mion laughing after the break
- Flashbacks of murder scenes from previous episodes
- The scheme falling into place.

Dislikes
Nothin', a great episode.

If it means all the characters can finally live their lives in peace I can accept the show being over. While it'd be sad to see it end after all we've gone through. Be nice if they could add some extras down the road for just the normal life after it's all said and done. Assuming everything works out since you have to feel a bit worried. This is Higurashi after all.

Do feel like Shion should have more of a role to play. Though from the times we've seen she is rarely there with them so maybe that's just how it is. Do think she has to play a bigger role down the road. Just have to wait and see on that one.

Shion does have a big role in the last arc but that doesn't mean she will get a lot of screen time.

So in the final reset how far back did Hanyuu take her and Rika? It seems they went back quite aways, so did they live through several years in the final reset leading up to the current point?

It's June 13 from the game...just a day short of a week from the festival.

Is the 1st part in the 1st episode related to this arc's ending in anyway?
I mean Rena survived and continued living till her adulthood, while everyone else's dead... which ending is that?

I assumed it followed Tsumihoroboshi, but I could be wrong.

Indeed. That was the epilogue of Tsumihoroboshi; the only real difference in the game compared to the anime was that Oishi was at a hospital, so Akasaka and his friend had to visit Hinamizawa without him.

And there was no Adult Rena in the game

Yes but in the anime it seems obvious that this last reset goes back much farther.

First of all, Hanyuu's power is diminishing, so the "reset" should be less than Minagoroshi-hen's 2 weeks. Kakera Musubi isn't exclusive to Matsuribayashi-hen, espically taking into account of Rika's loss of memories of Minagoroshi-hen,

Ah, but Hanyuu is no longer conserving her power. She spent it all on this go-around, which is why it's the last one. And possibly she got more power from Rika and Hanyuu both abandoning their despair.

Wouldn't she be in alert because Hanyuu did go demon on her when she first visited the town, and now the demon became a girl!

Maybe it is because the story was portraited from before they were "transported". Rika didn't remember anything afterall, and Hanyuu only "remember" after seeing Takano.

I sure hope that blond bitch Takano gets what she deserves! That scene in the last part of Ep. 13 pissed me off when she started executing all the main characters -Gahh! All in all, I really liked this episode. It actually made me feel a little better.

For a development episode, it got be really pumped for the next one. I really hope DEEN makes the last few episodes the best they can be.

It nice to see something good happening on Rika's side for a chance.

It's true that Hanyuu is giving her all at this time, but there isn't anything that suggests the they went back "much further" than it was shown, which is Hanyuu's transfer into the school. Also, there were no need to go back anymore than they have to, if you consider what the true nature of "reseting" is about.

And if Hanyuu actually does get a boost from Rika + Hanyuu abandoing their despair, you would think both of them would be more positive everytime.

That was several years ago. (earlier than 1978) It's unlikely that she remembers.
