Rena for me too. She's so kawaii, but she's also a strong person when she needs to be (and that's not just because of her knife she carries)^^

Just consider the "chapters" as "parallel" stories. The purpose and goal are to be able to figure what is going on. and for this, you need hints that are scattered differently and so requiring different type of plot progression.
What happened in episodes 1-4 are NOT linked with what you have seen in 5-7, but that might explain you some situations.

not the good thread by the way.

This is probably a dumb question but my cursory search has found no indication. Apologies for the thread necromancy as well.

Mion/Shion is wearing a shoulder holster with what resembles a poorly-detailed automatic pistol. Is it really a gun? If it is, why does she never use it? There were several situations she's been in where slinging lead could have been very useful. And why does she even HAVE it; pistols are not legal for civilian ownership in Japan, certainly not by someone of that age. She wears it out in the open, even in front of Ooishi, and nobody even notices it.

You can tell that this gun wasn't put there by Chekhov since it never does anything.

As you've surmised, it's fake; Mion does help out at a toy store after all. In the PS2 game they actually removed it from her character design in order to avoid confusing the players. By the way, this short parody touches upon this.

Thanks for the explanation. =)

More on topic, Rika > all.

She's the series' "creepy little girl" which means she is filled with metal and awesome.

If I'd only watched season 1, would have voted Shion.

But after seeing Higurashi Kai, Rena gets my vote.
She's a girl showing true courage, even in the darkest hours.

I have to decide between Rena and Satoko and I voted for Satoko.
Perhaps out of protective instinct, I'm not sure but I tend to like her more, even though I know Rena is the greater heroine, and I have a lot of sympathy for her, too. But Satoko deserves more votes not only because of Tatarigoroshi-hen and Maekashi-hen.

Gotta go for Rena. Her cute, shy, and innocent demeanor just has that...effect on me. Of course, I really like all of the characters here.

Why does Rena repeat the end of her sentences sometimes (but sometimes she'll go without repeating words for a while)?

It's just her speech pattern.

But overall, I think I like Rena-Chan the best o'3o

Even though you die in almost every arc of the first season, you live forever in my heart. So, never let go of Satoshi's bat and keep on inspiring others with your glorious speeches. May you also win SaiGAR.

I voted Keiichi. He's filled with pure win. Nothin' better than seeing a guy in a maid costume one day, then completely pwn with a bat the next.

Such a badass. xD
