Given the amount of things that will happen in next episode, I found the episode pretty uneventful. I'm sure the anime viewers will still find enough material to get freaked out / puzzled though

Also, about the last scene :

Not bad at all. Considering how the story was just flying in every other episode, this episode actually slowed down enough and managed to properly portray some of the most important scenes from the game.

Of course, a few scenes were kinda "huh?" to me (for example, Takano repeating "we didn't meet tonight", sounding like a creepy nutjob, EDIT: Ok, I was wrong here, she did sound like a creepy nutjob ^^; ), but they were minor so I won't dwell on them.

Oh yeah, I'm surprised they managed to get in the part where Rena gets all scary and demands Keiichi to bring and show her the receipt from the clinic to prove that he went to the doctor. It was one of those scenes that just comes out of nowhere and really sticks in your mind. ^^;

Also, is it just me or did Keiichi spent most of the episode being wide-eyed at everything?

Other than that, I'm just glad they managed to convey the "twist" here relatively clearly, the anime-watchers will probably enjoy pondering over this one. ^^;
Spoiler for minor detail:


From here on, it's down to Keiichi's mad dash for the truth, the next episode will probably drop a lot of jaws, so be prepared.
(Then again, it'll be tough one to watch for me... )

Considering you're asking this question, you must be a noob. So I'll quote the 3rd line down from the first message on this thread, under Thread Guidelines:

Great episode in portraying Kei's descent into madness (yet again). Good thing Tatarigoroshi is in five episodes. Now I have to see how well they can pull off the ending to Tatarigoroshi. I hope they do it as well as it was jaw-dropping in the original game...

Okay, time for me to go do those TIPS for 12 now.

I haven't seen the EP yet but from reading the comments hear it sounds good. I'm glad they kept that Rena scene b/c I thought they'll skip it.

Spoiler for hopes for the next ep:

Dang, decent into madness? Is Kei-chan just a person who likes to go mad? I'm telling you, it's like the makers are just screaming, "Look Keiichi's has probably gone mad in all three arcs, it's him! He is somehow the person who screws up everyone's lives." And, to tell you the truth it's getting kind of annoying.

Eitherway, I haven't seen this episode, so maybe our defenitions of madness are subjective. Maybe not. For instance, some people commented that Keiichi was mad when he killed Teppai, but I don't think he was. I think he was perfectly sane when he decided to kill him. It was and act of choice, not of insanity in my opinion. So we shall see, of course I haven't seen the episode, so perhaps my judgements are premature.

Wow, this episode introduced us to the possibility of a doppelgänger. Originally, I believed that there had to be a logical reason (non-supernatural) behind all this, but I am not sure anymore. If there truly is a doppelgänger running around, it will definitely tie up a lot of loose ends. Although, that explaination would be a little too convenient.

I was starting to think that too but

What's the need of a doppel if Keichii didn't kill the uncle?Unless there's both doppels and zombies now.

What a perfect episode. Nice intensity and no weird animation. Just plain great. Of course, the negative is that nothing happens. lol. But thats nothing I would complain about.
Man, Im not one to form any theories, but heck, Keiichi needs to go see for himself if

I agree. This episode didn't really have any wow-factor in it, but somehow still pulled through with great intensity. It mainly cleared up (or made it more confusing? ) some of the questions from the previous episode(s). This episode really either put a dent or solidified whatever reasoning the viewer had previously - whether there's a logical explanation to everything or a supernatural phenomenon. I'm really beginning to like this series .

Ahh, but we don't know that. Remember, the biggest overall "mystery" in the second half of Tatarigoroshi-hen was Keiichi's question to himself:
"狂っていたのは、俺か、雛見沢か" (Who's the crazy one? Me or Hinamizawa?)

The point for all these "wtf" events is not to make you think "oh there goes Keiichi again", but to make you seriously consider the fact that Hinamizawa, NOT Keiichi, is the entity responsible for these strange happenings (at least partly).

I just hope MOON PHASE's cyan-san's fear doesn't come true. That since the anime won't go up to Minagoroshi-hen, they might actually cut out the final scenes of Tatarigoroshi-hen just so there would be one less "loose end" to worry about when the anime is over.

Once again the moment you think you are starting to see the truth behind it all, everything changes so you end up being confused once again. I love the twists of this series.
The conclusion after this episode - Keiichi is either already past the brink of insanity or really, really dumb.
