Seiryuu's remark about how K1 and the girls are never behaving insanely simultaneously is, I think, spot on. There's little doubt that, no matter what the truth is, a large part of what we are shown is not real. It's somehow filtered through a lens of insanity or evil or something paranormal. But whose lens is it we are seeing through? K1's? Or is the answer more subtle than that?

Damn, Rena's insane face is scary. Best psycho-look I've ever seen. Norman Bates go home.

Yeah Bron, that's a very coherent writeup on Keiichi's insanity, I like your train of thought. And I appreciate that the game players are become our very own TIPS factor. The one kj1980 last put up is interesting, but I don't know what to make of that information.

Spoiler for what I think about the TIP:

Spoiler for ep 2, 3 & 4:

I think I'm just throwing speculations left and right and I don't even know what I'm onto with all that questions, but this is addictive.

I'm wondering what will they do in the next episode. Keiichi can't be alive for it, so what? D:


And also, Rena looks like Keade's little sister. ;P

Actually, I made that explanation very simple. The more confusing way to explain it was:

Onikakushi: Certain event became a trigger point that lead to this ending.
Watanagashi: A certain decision by Keiichi leads to a chain event of something terrible.
Tatarigoroshi: An unexpected re-appearance leads everything to disaster.

And no, I'm not spilling any details. That up for you to think.

Probably not...but by the time we get to Tsumihoroboshi (the sixth chapter), you'll find many of the hints that were there in Onikakushi that you may have missed.

My wikipedia article should just be a sticky for these FAQs.

In either case, many of you have their own theories, which is a good thing. And many have mentioned one item as evidence.

I'll say this so you can keep this jabbed in your mind for the next set of episodes:

The syringe is a recurring key item in the mystery. Whether it is evidence or not, I'm not saying. But it is an important item to ponder about.

Come to think about it.. the cops didn't find it - probably the men who arrived at Keiichi's house must have taken it - i'll keep what you said in mind.

Just like kj1980 said, after a chapter ends, things "start over", and a new development will take place. The job for the viewers will be to pay attention to the differences and similarities between each of these "chapters" (1 - 4 was Onikakushi-hen, Watanagashi-hen will most likely go from 5 - 8), as well as "putting the pieces together", using informations you have learned across all the different "chapters".

By the way, I have posted episode 5's preview screenshots back a few pages ago, I'll put them here again (with potential spoiler removed this time ^^; ) in case anyone missed them:

Thanks for the screenshots Sushi-Y~ ^^

It looks like Episode 05's gonna have the heartwarming feelings that episode 01 had, i wonder if it'll be 100% like that.

Now I have to ask: if things "start over", that means that the events of eps. 1-4 are a series of events that didn't happen, right? Just one possibility in the continuum of events that could result from the same circumstances -- as if we're playing through the various story tracks of the game, looking for the one thread that will lead to a non-catastrophic outcome?

Is that it? Or are those different storylines somehow all true at once?

in a sense, all true at once. more like different perspective and other things that happened during that time line which weren't seen from keiichi's eyes

One thing that really struck me...

I don't know what the truth is about Rena. There's no way of knowing for sure, I think, at this point in the series. But I do know this:

This anime is rapidly growing on me.
