That, you are correct. But the scene itself is a lot deeper than that. Hmm...I don't know whether to make the judgment that the anime staff did this as an actual timeline for Watanagashi-hen, or....

im in love this series and the opening song but man its driving me crazy. I didnt expect there would be twins. I thought Mion was pulling a fast one but then i think back to the opening with the whole i think i will ram my head/neck into this thing and blood will go everywhere what made Rika do this and why are the twins involved. We saw Shion's true nature come out when K1 was bullied so its almost like personalties are reverse. The bento was from Mion not Shion and thats out of charcter for her. but Rena said that Mion had a cute girl side to. what is marking these people for death we know what happen to Rena and Mion that was obvious from the start but what about Shion. cant wait for more this is the kind of series i have been waiting for all year

...Wow this sucks, if I say anything other than "Hoho-. (・ω・ )", it'll become spoiler.
All I can say is, yes, you are interpreting my hint correctly. ^^;

As for the Oishi comment, you can try to analyze further: what is it that Oishi is trying to do (ultimately)? What relationship does Oishi have with all the past missing persons before they went Onikakushi? What kind of person is Oishi anyway? etc.

And the victim comment, I wouldn't laugh it off either. Who knows what are the causes for all those suicides? Some say it's drugs, others say it's Oyashirosama's curse, but for all we know, there might actually be a biological reason behind it. (I'm not saying that's actually the case, I'm just throwing it out as a possibility)

two questions if they haven't already been answered: how old are the various characters? Someone suggested that Rena and Mion should have been around 7 during the events of five years ago, but I doubt it since they look a good bit past twelve. Also, when does this take place, relative to the chronology set in Onikakushi? All I can tell is that it's somewhere between K1's joining the club and the Watanagashi festival. I'm inclined to assume that the story followed the same line up until the point where this show starts, but I can't tell what point that is.
Another thing: Didn't Mion say her job was at the toy store, and wasn't the game at that same store? Why, then, did she say she had work and ride off? Wouldn't she just go back to the offices and check in?

Even though I didn't play the game or read the manga and no tknow much about the ch's... I think this ch is based around the idea of jealousy? because if you look at ep.1 it seems like a fight for k1 has just begun in which there will be casualties.

I could probably pick & choose all day which one was Shion, and which one was Mion. Well, won't mean much for now anyway other than that lovey thing. But we do know that there are twins. So where you see one, you could always expect it to possibly the other as well.

Spoiler for But as my gut tells me who was:

IF Shion was the 'evil' part of the twins (if they aren't both 'evil' or none of them is) I'd suggest this theory:

Spoiler for op screenies:
The picture of the two twins showing only one having a tattoo on the back screams of “important future hint to tell them apart". Now we just have to see which on has the tattoo, Mion or Shion.

With all of the switching and pretending between the sisters, you would think both would eventually find out, or even consider the possibility of it happening and take steps to prevent it.

The fact that they don't run into each other while doing it is pretty amazing.

Well judging by their hairstyle its Mion that has the tattoo(if it really is a tattoo).

But then again, Mion could be pretending to be Shion and vice versa. =D

It looks more like a scar to me.

Thanks for the feedback, Sushi-Y. I really did not expect much for an answer, since I figured, as you mentioned, it would probably result in a spoiler. I thought it would make good discussion material, though. We non-gamers will just have to keep on speculating.

I am going to have to think about this. I thought Oishi's objective was to solve the murder mystery, but that might just be his superficial motive. He always seems so non-chalent, and always saying to people,

Spoiler for TIPS comment:

He just does not seem to care. It is more as if he is trying to instigate things and intentionally feeding information slowly to provoke the situation. Wouldn't it be interesting if he ends up being the leader of the village dam murder that got away?

I can't point my finger on what relationship he has with the victims.

As for the victims' death,

Oh, and I don't particularly see any jealousy between the twins; well, at least not yet.
