damn... someone wrote "ebil rena ;​_;" as torrent description so that made me completely 300% hyped up for this episode... quite an evil trick there was no ebil rena ;_;

But Shion has shown to also be quite ebil:heart:
And they also eqiuped her with sharp weapon, so now Shion is definitely qualified as likeable to me

But poor Rika, it crushes something in me when my favourite imouto characters get bullied >_< this is unforgiveable Shion......

Satoko is next... poor Satoko *fears*

I don't think we know if it is the same drug as K1 in the first story. And many people have speculated that the syringe K1 thought he saw was really a black marker.

I don't know what to believe anymore.

Urg! This episode made my dislike towards Shion shoot up about 10 more notches. How dare she touch Rika!

She is definitely loosing it now. Now for some ideas, mainly about what's inside the syringe .
Spoiler:


My opinion on Rika and Oyashiro-sama:
Spoiler:


Anyway, lots of good information in this episode. I can't wait for the end of this arc, and for the start of Tsumihoroboshi-hen.

Wasn't it said before that only the first answer arc was going to be animated?

Also this episode brings a very interesting question.Are the Sonozakis really the most power family in Hinamizawa?I used to think so because they seemed closer to Oyashiro-sama,coordinating the curse and everything.

So cute ^^;;

Awesome episode, but the scene where Shion and Rika were walking down the hallway confused me.

Spoiler:


and if I can guess what's going to happen next

As expected, there continues to be excellent storytelling with more of the mysteries behind the Watanagashi-hen being uncovered. A very intriguing plot being unraveled (It had me to glued to the screen), but it saddens me to finally learn the cold hard truth behind Rika's death. Boy was Shion out of control. And it doesn't look as though her killing frenzy will be ending anytime soon... more departures . Nonetheless, I can't wait to find out how this arc ends. A very entertaining mystery indeed!

10/10

The Letter

Even if I'm committing the sin of assuming consistency between chapters, I have to wonder:

Spoiler for a tiny detail:


I guess I'll find out tomorrow, maybe.

That news letter went out the every house in the village. Rena gave K1 his copy that was still on his porch.

As for Rika-chan...
Kimiyoshi is not only a Gosanke Head, the Village Elder, but also Rika's lawful guardian. Also he is very close to all immediate members of the Sonozaki family. When "Mion" says he's been taken care of, and also her sister Shion as well, and the fact that Oryou hasn't been seen since Watanagashi, I think she thought something might be up.

Umm... I know it might sound evil, but I was so happy when Shion owned Rika. Take that, Oyashiro! Though there will obviously be some kind of payback later on for it...

Phenomenal and disturbing episode. The climactic scene is now in the pantehon of most disturbing and suspensful death scenes I've ever watched. It really makes you squirm! ^ - ^
P.S. about Daybreak. How's it coming along? Is it out yet? Is it free? What characters are in it and what weapons do they use? Can you play it on the net and is it easy to learn without knowing Japanese?

^ I believe it's because Rika saw Shion as a threat to the peace of herself and her friends, not only misunderstanding, but totally whackadoo as well. Remember the speech she told K1 in Watanagashi.

~_~ I know, I even surprise myself sometimes...
(I also surprised all the prison guards when I escaped mental prison)
>_>
<_<
(the thing with mental prison is a joke btw...no really! I swear^^;; )

But then I was wondering, how the heck and where would I be kissing her.... Her mouth alone looks like it could bite off my head in 1 go....*feeeeaaaars*

AAhem....anyway, even with scaryness like that, I still can't forgive Shion for what she did to poor Rika...
Bullying Rika and making her cry at school like that is unforgiveable after all.....

Then there is only Rena left for me with high enough scary level after all
Rena....I miss ebil Rena ;_;

The second Rika appeared at the house, i knew we'd see the scene from episode 05.. it was so hard to watch.

Anyway.. Nii-pa.. ;_____;

Well
I'm not totally sure if on Onikakushi Mion managed to shot Keiichi
I mean... The scene is cut to Keiichi hitting the girls
Anyone can confirm this?

Since Keiichi was in, kind of, the same state as Shion now, maybe this medicine is something to help. I don't believe Rika would intend to kill Shion, as well as Mion and Rena with Keiichi on Onikakushi. I'm almost 100% certain that those snake eyes on Onikakushi were just hallucinations, the girls weren't bad people...
