Anyway, yeah, this episode showed, among other things, that Rena has the eyes of a hawk. That's why she noticed everything in Onikakushi-hen, she could beat Oishi at detective work.

Of course, did anyone else notice that Mion's eyes didn't go slit-like when she freaked out?

I do believe that's a hint, folks.
Yep. That scene freaked me out.

Does no slits suggest she's actually in control? Or is it just weird animation?

Yeah, but how do we know that it is even Mion, couldnt it be Shion lol. I hate being left alone not knowing anything.

The laughter was well done in the anime too, so it's not as big a deal.

Mion's face really did scare me alot!

Back to square 1 again for me

Spoiler for revised hypothesis. I hate twins!:


So how am I doing?

Do we know how far these people are living from each other? Like a village map with where the residences are in any of the TIPs.

The feeling that the viewer gets from watching episode seven's pretty amazing - gotta be the best episode so far.

At this moment i get whats going on in this chapter, but i'm gonna have to re-watch to fully understand each lil' part.

As for Rena, she looks like the normal one in this chapter, though how she knows what happened that night's interesting.

But, Mion has a tatoo on her back (in the OP). So, they can differentiate the 2.

Shion may not know about this. I assume Mion didn't have this tatoo since early childhood.

i was just wondering, doesn't mion call Rena "Rena-chan"? In episode 7, when the three meet to find out what happened to Satoko +Rika, "Mion" called the other two "Rena, Kei-chan", i thought that was weird, i just wanted to make sure if i'm correct. Considering the fact that i don't trust looking back 1-2 episodes (still in watanagashi chapter, i don't trust the twins :P) , i want to ask if anyone can go back to Demoned-away chapter and see if Mion calls Rena, just "Rena"

Yes, she just calls her Rena in the first chapter. But I wouldn't put too much stock into the usage of -chan and -kun as clues to anything. In the first chapter, even K1 calls Rena plain old "Rena" and Mion is "Mion" as well. Of course, Rena calls K1 "Keiichi-kun" and Mion "Kei-chan" for what I believe are ulterior motives as most of us probably suspect, typical of the harem genre.

What a mindblower. Again.

Again, I'm coming up with increasingly farfetched ideas on what is behind all this:

Hi all. I've been lurking since about ep3 and like many others this series has caused me to register here on animesuki. The great part of this anime is all the discussion that goes along with every ep, so here I am!

The main reason that particulal scene didn't have much of an impact had to be the sound pitch of Mion or the lack of it. The extreme emotion shown in the face would have matched a higer volume of a Mion's voice like if she had spoken in shrill. The way she was talking to Keiichi just didn't match the emotion of her face. Recall in episode 2, when Rena's face all distorted and says "USO DA" in a scream and the birds, startled, (along with me. I jumped ) flies away. Mion's scene should have been executed something like that, just that, here it would have been a lot more dialogues in a high voice. Like many, I also think the animators just messed up in the executoin of this particular scene.

Yes, i though that it would be weird for Mion to be dress as Shion even at her home during the phonecalls.

Rika isnt dead yet, since from the start of ep 5 and 1, you know they're gonna reshow later on .

Don't forget (and correct me if I'm wrong): the first four arcs are taken from Keiichi's point of view.
