What about Hanyuu's rejection of Takano's offering and her physical manifestation to Keiichi's father? To me that suggests that Hanyuu at the least went back farther because she's abandoned her passive bystander role and knows that Takano is the bad guy, although she forgets when she takes physical form.

I don't think Takano saw what the presence she was communicating with actually looked like. Hanyuu has communicated with people before after all, and yet nobody had an accurate picture of what she looked like or even her sex in physical form.

Keiichi's father scene isn't exclusive to Matsuribayashi-hen. Reason being Rika's loss of memory of Minagoroshi-hen, so we can't say Rika went back to make sure Keiichi come back for Matsuribayashi-hen. Rather, it's Hanyuu made sure that she played with Rika enough everytime that Keiichi will show up more.

Takano's offering in Matsuribayashi-hen is definitely after Minagoroshi-hen, but "Rika" wasn't shown to be there. This makes more sense if you consider the true nature of the Hanyuu's "reseting" power (mentioned in Saikoroshi-hen).

Besides, if Hanyuu really made "Rika" go back when Takano first showed up, you would think they would do something about her instead of waiting for all the events to happen again and wait until a week before the festival to set getting help.

Episode 20: Analysis

for some further thoughts, the episode was indeed very nice, though the tension wasn't at the climax with everything.
That said, it was good to see how they covered Ooishi in that episode, especially how it is a bit ambiguous with Akane. (where is kasai? maa... i guess he would be a better match with akasaka )

.
Rika's statement at the end of the episode suggests otherwise. She didn't just want him because life's more fun with the the butt-monkey around.

Just thought I'd say something. With all the discussion, there's not much to say, but there's one spot that struck me. It may not mean anything in Japan, but when Hanyuu called Rena a "blue flame"... I don't know if it's only in America, but over here the term is sometimes used to describe a particularly odd, and colorful, way some guys find to deal with boredom.

Rena is odd. Does that count?
