Episode 09 was everything i hoped it would be - and the fact that each character had a say in on the story was really something.

New story arc starts and my brain is again struggling to process all the new information.
I am now starting to suspect the manager, simply because he is voiced by Seki Toshihiko (yes, I know, he does not always voice the villain ). But can a person with a maid fetish be the real culprit?

Well, Alex & crew finally managed to get episode 9 out the door, woot. This might need some new temporary glue for a few days as a lot of us can FINALLY discuss this episode intelligently.

Spoiler:


On the whole, very good episode, and a side of Sakoto we've not seen before, even in the anime left a few details out (even without knowing any TIPS, though, it was still hugely informative). Hopefully Alex & crew can get Ep.10 out ASAP so we can get fairly caught up in discussion again.

Oddly enough, I think the series would benefit more if they didn't give hints to when characters enter oyashiro-mode; it keeps more of the mystery aspect prevalent rather than half-heartedly playing on the horror side of it all. Then again I know nothing of the story and am simply hanging on for the ride.

And what a ride it's been so far. The story is great the animation on the other hand...
Well I guess it's not terrible, but the show does suffer from some weird synching problems. I'm hoping that the quality returns to the level of Onikakushi-hen.

All in all, ep09 was great. A lot of info was revealed and the return of slightly unstable Rena .

Hoping to contribute to the discussion later as it's prett late over here.

Lies! If his character lasts until the end of the episode you can safely assume he's evil Poor Seki, he's so typecast.

After this episode Satoko and Rika have both soared in my estimations. It'll be nice to see calm, reliable Mion after she was psycho in the last arc too, Rena already seems to suit both roles. I can't imagine Rika or Satoko going oyashiro now, I don't want them to

Was Tatarigoroshi much longer in the game, or did more happen? Seen as the wiki says this is going to be five episodes and it's apparently *still* skipping loads of stuff.

Just watched the subs from fan****.tv--just a question: How come Satoko has such great strength to swing a baseball bat, and hit the ball so clean and well? Is that something to do with the plot.

The scene where K1 came flying in his bike with a golf stick is so cool/funny...

I must say, it's really interesting to see Rena's reaction to the mention of Satoshi , and his "transferring away."

I came up with a couple of random theories this episode... I sort of like them both.

Spoiler for Guy in the bag:


Spoiler for Satoko's parents' death:


Still three episodes in this arc, but hopefully I'll figure something out.

I was actually really disappointed with this episode's animation. The eyes(Shion and Rena) mostly was what let me down. What happened to the evil eyes of Episode 2-4? Also except for the nails in the hands part they scanned over the beginning death part so fast to where I had to go back and pause it to see if it was a boy or girl that was dead. Rika and Satoko earned it an 8 though.

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to bring this up or if it's been done elsewhere but one of the things that has bothered me since Shion was introduced is why is she living in Okinomiya?

Also in this episode we hear that Satoshi was killed because of a desire to leave Hinamizawa but when was the last time Shion lived in Hinamizawa?

Those eyes are reserved for when Rena is in her higurashi killer mode


Though this episode was full of Satoko and Rika cuteness, there was one particular shot I really really reeally liked

Rena MOEEEEEE
OMG Rena's sitting height is the same as satoko's, I never noticed that untill now... >_< kyaaaa *wants to kidnap Rena same way Rena kidnapped Rika*
after seeing watanagashi then this, I feel like they turned the sugoi-moe-protective-onee-chan-like-reliable-person-Rena into moe-moe-loli-little-Rena, and I can't help falling for her like this tooRena:heart:

Thanks. If the curse targeted Rena because she moved away and had to move back to not get killed from it and Satoshi was killed by the curse because of a desire to leave why hasn't Shion been targeted since she lives in Okinomiya and not Hinamizawa? or am i missing something?
