To me, when I first listened to the dramaCD, it sounded like Kira Yamato (GundamSEED) getting freaked out by a psychotic Miyafuji Miina (Onegai Twins) and Chidori Kaname (Full Metal Panic!).

I've been haunting these boards as a guest since the series started, I planned to join in sooner but my account went kerpoof and I was too lazy to re-register. But I swear this series just keeps sucking me in further and further and further... It's so amazing, I'm seriously jealous of you people who played the game too. If I were smart enough to learn Japanese I would soooo play. I wish I could >.< It's just awesome! Yet it freaks me out, I'm surprised I'm still watching and eagerly awaiting the 5th episode to be subbed. The first time I watched the first two episodes, just before bed around Midnight... I was like... Yeah... This is awesome... I'm so not going to sleep... And ya know what? I didn't o.O, I finally came down with the flu that was going around, and lucky me ran fever and got delusional, needless to say the anime came to haunt me that night and a few more night... Thank God my Mom was too far in dream land to wake up lol. Getting a sore throat after hearing about the photographer guy after the festival lol... Sooo freaks you out... But that goes to show how much this show sucks you in maybe, they are doing such a superb job!! And so are all the other members of the board here that are trying to solve it!! I can't wait to come up with something to add, but so far I agree with a lot of the speculations there have been so far. I love murder mysteries, or regular mysteries, any mysteries! I grew up on them, some Sherlock Holmes, Trixie Beldon, Nancy Drew, etc etc. Seeing animes like this just make me go SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE~!!! I love the characters, the art design, the mystery, the suspense, the on the edge of your seatness at parts. The 'What the...' moments... I have those moments watching this, it's just what I love to see in anime. I'm more eager to see this than I am to see Detective Academy Q or more Spiral manga scanlations. I was ecstatic to see this anime get it's own forum, and seeing all the work put into it with the Tips and the poems is just awesome. All of you that have worked on it are awesome, as are you people with the awesome detective work so far. I hope to contribute some stuff in the future, but for now I'm following advice I read earlier and not judging anything by the first chapter, eagerly awaiting the second to see if any of my suspicions will be validated... Probably not as I am really not too bright >.<... I so wish there were a translated version of the game some where!! One can dream, maybe someday... But still enjoying this, I love it!! *Been awhile since an anime sucked her in and excited her this much.*

Like kj said, Shirakawa was used as a model for the village of Hinamizawa, so the locations are 100% real. The story and characters, on the other hand, are 100% fiction.

Much like the model town for Onegai Teacher and Onegai Twins was Lake Kizakiko in Nagano Prefecture, that doesn't necessarily mean a hot babe voiced like oneechan crash lands her UFO in that region.

Ryukishi07 may have gotten the ground laying idea for the story, as this area was a subject for protest back in the mid to late 1950s for a dam construction project. Unlike Hinamizawa however, a dam was indeed built, but not on a scale of submerging the entire village or surrounding areas. The dam that you see in the pictures is exactly that.

TIPS
I read over the TIPS and have decided to share which ones stand out to me, and offer some thoughts on them.

The TIPS post cover everything from the beginning one called-
“Why does our school have mixed grade levels?” to the one entitled “Does Shion really exist?”

I was thinking about that syringe/marker pic(with the other weapons) in the other thread, and...
Spoiler:


Can anyone connect my theories to anything else?

Someone has clearly explained that with examples, it's in this thread, I believe.

Ps. Kj-san, thanks for correcting my mistake about Takano ^^

Okay about the Sevens Mart tip in the TIPS section:

And lastly what was in front of Keichi that made him scream??

My own little speculations after rewatching everything last night (Yes I broke me rule of not watching this at night ever again.) Mostly guess work and just random commenting on things so far, probably nothing.

Spoiler for Episodes 1-3 and slightly 4ish I guess...:

Yeah, I know that already. I've been reading the Higurahshi posts by the forum members who have been writing the TIPS. I meant it as joke poking fun at the dumb plot devices.

That was exactly my point! Though you shouldn't look at it one way... this anime incourages you to think outside the box. There's a chance that...
Spoiler:
Still my theory tho

I'm terribly sorry about it then TT-TT Since my english is not good, I often interprete things wrongly. I'm very sorry =w=

It seems like everyone has started talking about the marker and the syringe. Maybe those who has no clue what those are about should check out the gallery thread. It's a good piece of hint, I think.

I don't know... I saw the gallery picture ages ago and I think people are reading too much into it.

Spoiler for speculation on the syringe:

What're you saying? That it's not real? It wouldn't be among those pictures if it wasn't, IMO.

HUGE Hint:

Spoiler:


Though that doesn't necessarily mean that there won't be a real syringe coming out in later chapters... Like I said, the syringe is a huge piece of the puzzle in either case.

And I reiterate once again: trigger point. That's the key.

It's a shame that the scene at the end of the festival with Tomitake and the club wasn't depicted in the anime + Mion line before the Keiichi batsugemu scene in ep 4.
It deprives anime viewers from a possible clue.
