Yay for Daisuke Ono, he's just perfect for Akasaka, such a great role.

This chapter seems like its going to be the main interesting one of the series.. and having many more cute Rika scenes a plus~

"Nipa~" = win.
I've been saying it all day. It's addicting. I don't recommend trying it unless you're completely fine with never stopping.

This chapter looks like it'll answer a few questions (don't they all look like that at first?), so I'm looking forward to it.
Although, it is bothering me to watch my non-supernatural theories slowly being Watanagashi'ed to death

I am still not abandoning the non-supernatural camp. Just because Rika spoke as if she were an avatar of Oyashiro-sama does not mean she actually is.

Also for them to get such leaks about the PSIA's plans they must be extremely well connected.
Ooishi might have told them, knife-proof vest or not. I still don't trust him. Plus, Akasaka's remark about coming back with his wife after she leaves the hospital might have made people suspicious about him. What kind of husband would go on a sightseeing tour when his wife is expecting a baby?

Gave this episode a 9 just because of that simple fact.

Agreed. After enduring this wretched seiyuu for Keiichi and the ill suited voice for most occasion, I'm absolutely giddy to have a break. Akasaka is an instantly likable character for such a contrasting voice for similar situation Keiichi was often in.

May I also suggest xxxHolic, especially the later episodes, for more late night fun!

i think im going to enjoy this chapter looks like we are going to get some things answered in this chapter. Little Rika was cute till she went all crazy eyed psycho. Did anyoone else think the head of the Sonozaki family looked like the old women from Basilisk Kouga Ninpou Chou in the pilot episode?

There was a women sitting in a black Kimono during the meeting was she Mions/Shions mother they had the same hair color. http://www.badongo.com/pic/238327

Does anyone else know how Rika knew that the damn project would be stopped my guess is Oyashiro-sama possessed her and thats how god that wind effect was creepy

yep, the black kimono is Sonozaki Akane =) She's awesome. You'll see more of her later.

Forget the wind effects on Rika. Didn't happen in the game. Studio Deen for some reason decide something over the top should be thrown in *groan*

As for the sightseeing comment, good thinking. In the game, Akasaka did think to himself "shit, I shouldn't have said that" especially when Rika and the tour guide both gave him strange looks.

Also another foul Akasaka thought he made. Claiming how the way the protests are carried out is bad and they should go by it though legal means. Smart place to make that judgement call - at the footsteps of the Central HQ of the Protest.

Yeah, I noticed that, too. He's a nice guy, but still a bit of a n00b
It'll probably cost him later

Actually, while that may be true, it's worth noting that mi~ is also a sound effect used to represent cicada cries. Perhaps she picked it up from all those summers hearing the higurashi.

あれ? 蝉はミンミンミ~ンと鳴くっと思っていたけど...後はカナカナカナっと
「み~」は子猫の鳴きまねじゃなかったんですか?

Is that true? Never lived in Japan so I'm not 100% sure on these things...

Not sure about kittens saying "Mi~." Never paid much attention, I guess. Although in manga I usually see cicads make the 'min min mi~n' noise like you said.
And what's "kanakanakana"?

It's also another sound cicada make. Part of the reason why Ryukishi 07 makes Rena go "kana? kana?"

I don't recall reading cicada go mi~ (but I'm not 100% on animal sound effects, especially ones that don't exist where I am). Kittens do say mi~ and I always thought that's why Rika making that sound. Neko wo kaburu kara.

Oh, that's what's with Rena's 'kana.' I always thought it was meant to be 'ka na~' as in something like "暑いかなぁ..." like thinking outloud or talking to yourself.
I guess we both learned something today

Um, someone named Mion Sonozaki just called me and said she's
sending someone over to your place and that you're in a lot of
trouble.

She said that the someone she was sending was Oyashiro or the
like.

PSYCHE!

Yeah, sometimes you think everyone would be better off......

Interesting episodes. Woah, a slightly psycho Rika moment. And that my friends is what Mion/Shion would look like in their later years. Also Rika doesn't look much younger in this story, looks about the same age as Mion, um, that's something I thought was strange.
