I probably would've teared up a bit at the school yard scene... if I wasn't laughing so hard at Mion's and Satoko's reactions

Okay, I read all the TIPS, and the spoilers, and everything, but I've never really seen this question addressed directly...I haven't watched Kai yet, so I'm not sure if it's answered, but here goes.

Spoiler:


Sorry if this has been asked/answered before, but I've never found the answer to it so I thought I'd ask.

It's never clarified. My guess it that the Sonozakis were trying to protect Rena from the police and thus made false reports in order to send them on a wild goose chase. Or it could have been that someone mistook another person for Rena and contacted the police thinking that he had genuinely seen her.

I figure it was someone, either the Sonozaki family, or maybe just Mion acting alone, or Rika, etc, Keiichi and co., who sent out a false report to confuse the police. That's probably an area they knew Rena probably wouldn't hide out, at least, even if they didn't specifically know she was in the junkyard. But I had other thoughts too.

Spoiler for who found Rena:


Either way I just wanted to know if they ever legitimately explained the whole 'Rena's doppleganger' thing or if it was just meant to imply that was a false report to lead them off her trail.

She can't interact with her environment, so no.

There's no need to posit anything complicated. The Sonozakis or a simple case of mistaken identity are both more than adequate for explaining it.

Wow, I'm beginning to wonder if maybe Rena didn't pick up some parasite from hanging out in that junkyard all the time, that combined with her delusions, make for an interesting combination. I'm glad I wasn't the only one thinking Mion's mom was looking great in this episode, Though I am surprised it's her talking with Ooishi and not grandma. Well on to the end of this series.

Only season one. The ending to this can hardly be considered the conclusion.

I was counting this as one series, and then Kai as the next series in the Franchise, sorry for not making it clear.

I love this episode because it's so intense emotionally, most notably the entire scene involving Keiichi and Rika. Everything changes here, and episode 25 does a very good job conveying the message and the mood as the Atonement Chapter.
