Now that I understand K1's speech better I see why his popularity has grown. In fact, he's had a few great character moments (Protecting Shion from bikers, How he handled Mion/Shion when he was on the cross, stopping Teppei from abusing Satoko.)

Oh poor Rena. I can see Oishi doing to her the same what he did to Keiichi in Onikakushi. I just hope Rena will be less pacient like Mion (or was Shion who "had the chance" to kill him?) and Keiichi. Go for it, Rena-chan.

He also looked pretty cool in the Watergun fight, lol.

I'm really surprised at how much gore they're allowed to show. Even if a lot of it is sorta censored or they show it really fast, I know that none of the violence scenes would even come close to airing in america.

Great episode by the way, I like how they kind-of made it so it was like Rena telling the gang what's happened up until the confession scene. I'm just surprised Satoko didn't say anything, seeing as how she had to live with Teppei for a few years (did she even know he was the other victim?)

But um, did Rena do some serious cleaning to the fridge? For bloody bodies they sure didn't leave many stains...

I don't know about that. I think Adult Swim is capable of showing that level of violence.

Adult Swim has shown Fullmetal Alchemist - while some of the scenes in Higurashi are significantly creepier than FMA. I don't find them to be much more violent. Adult Swim also showed Paranoia Agent (up there on the creepy scale) and I believe the only edits they had to make had to do with "adult situations" (i.e. sex talk, implied, etc).

Man...
Something tells me that when the things start to go wrong here the blood bath will be even gorier than with Teppei and Rina...
hehe

That's a good point; Satoko's reaction...
Did she know that Teppei was killed ?
Or she doesn't care for him at all (I wouldn't anyway haha)

Last Saturday on Trinity Blood (TVMA) They showed someone getting sliced in half, having their heart pulled out then squeezed until it exploded. If they can show that, they can show anything Higurashi has.

CSI can get pretty graphic... much more graphic than Higurashi ever gets.

Anyways, great episode. Pissed off Rena was awesome, as always. I just wish that she was like that more often.

Normal/Detective ark/Death by Curse ark Rena FTF

Pissed off Rena FTMFW

Edit: Also, am I the only one that LOLed hard when Rena got her ass handed to her? As much as I like pissed Rena, that was funny.

I think I will be extremely sad if you see through that plan, anyone who has the mind in getting the spoilers without the fluff can easily google them anytime and keep it to themselves. However I plan to provide the fluff, in chronological order too.

holy gore yes rina started it so i had no sympathy for her death watsoever but it would have been better to see rena's machete killing rina instead of that metal stick ^^
but seeing it go through Teppei's head gave me a big fat grin XD
and again rena slicing through the body...gave me the shivers and the bone crushing sound goes well with it...
gg rena

It seems that everybody is better at murdering people than K1.

As nice as it may seem on the surface, I can't really laud what K1 did for Rena. If they had abandoned her, she would be the only one to take the fall; but now, K1 has put everyone in danger because they are now accomplices to murder (or manslaughter, whatever).

But if she had killed her with the billhook, you wouldn't have gotten to see Rina's face all collapsed and disfigured from the beating! Death by pipe is cooler than death by blade, IMO. Bashing someone's head in with a heavy blunt object is much more brutal than a stab or clean cut.

I await the DVD to see the full split uncensored!

But seriously, as I was watching this, in the back of my mind, I wondered, when will all this break down? Then out pops Ooishi.

And I'm starting to understand how everything is connected. I need to draw up a timeline of the events to see how everything turns out. Then to compare it with the game.

After watching the ep. and reading the tips for it, in particular "My favorite Wine" it got me thinking back to some pics i say in the wallpaper thread.

I beleive that there is infact some entity that rika, maybe rena can see/hear, whether its Oyashiro-sama or not (I lean to yes, would make sense unless Oyashiro-sama is suppose to be a he not a she)

*note all pics are from the wall gallery*

http://img321.imageshack.us/my.php?i...g0085133rh.jpg
http://img223.imageshack.us/my.php?i...11255759xe.jpg
http://img128.imageshack.us/my.php?i...enamili9ur.jpg

In all these pics there is ghostly figure which resembles Rika almost to a "T" When I first saw these pics I was like, they must be fan made not real or important, but now I do believe 100% that she is real and that she is tied to the whole mystery somehow. Hmm, if not Oyashiro-sama, maybe the ghost of the first Rika that died who now travels between time periods in hopes of preventing her death maybe... hmmm

P.S. I really love this show, hopes for the manga/game to be translated *fingers crossed*

Episode 23 was very good. Those 2 deserved to die, however I think that Rena took a very... extreme attitude. You need to be careful with cute girls. /o/

The only problem with this episode was the overall mood, and how the ending was trying to get Rena to relax. I was hoping the bloodshed would last throughout the episode instead of just the first half.

Good episode! Would have been a 10 but it's a 9.
