Finally the start of the (at least by me) most awaited of the question chapters, Tatarigoroshi.
Out of the three first parts for each chapter we've seen so far (episodes 1-5-9), this is the one I've rated the highest.
Basically because it's the one giving out more substance. While it keeps its appearance of calm and peaceful rural environment at the very beginning, that's just more that we get later.
And that's when Shion gives that hint of semi-madness, though it's just for a couple of seconds, but especially in Rena's deep shocking mode near the end. Those insane eyes we've seen a lot in Onikakushi, but that I personally didn't expect to meet in chapter 1 of Tatarigoroshi. Also because it was quite a long scene, with some important subjects mentioned.
Maybe it's because at this point we are, all in all, more acknowledged about the whole show, that Rena's outburst made some sense.
But at the end of the episode I felt like having clues on my mind already about this chapter, which didn't happen on ep 1 and 5. Basically the comedy took about just a little more than one half of the episode, while the purpose of the remaining was informative.
Plus for having sweet Satoko on the spotlights. I agree, who wouldn't want a little sister like her? ^^
Oyashiro-sama's curse is mentioned more than once, and I tend to associate it with the "supernatural", which is the path I'd be more oriented as for now, though I admit the rational explanation path is more or less equally worthy.
9/10 to the episode, by the way.
