Although I thought the baba's face was weird, and that wind effect on Rika was over the top, the episode managed to squeeze most of what Himatsubusi has to offer.
Noticeably :

All in all, it should be a much needed break for the viewers, after the rollercoaster ride that Tatarigoroshi is.

With those eyes Sonozaki Oryou-sama owned Sauron for good.


I'll give a 9/10 for this episode, because we got so many kawaii "miiiii" and "nipa☆♪" smiles from Rika-chama.

After seeing this episode I had to do a total rewrite of my theory from scratch and I’m still actually not done, but here it is nonetheless. My theory on what is happening in Hinamizawa:

Edit: Thanks for pointing that out, LostBlue. I guess I just though that I caught Rika in a strange position when I heard her make that statement and went off to type up my theory right away. Anyways, now that part of my theory is debunked guess its time to rethink and rewrite.

Spoiler:
Awsome episode btw. I nearly soiled myself when Rika did her thing this episode. I love watching this anime late at night

WinD is having problems once again, so no new episodes for us Japanese illiterate.

well, I know a little Japanese, but it's still not enough to support me through an entire episode. ;_;

All that matters is that they kept the "mi~" and "nipa~☆" exchange between Ons... I mean Akasaka and Rika at the bus stop. ^^; Although it would've been nice if they could kept Akasaka's monologues for this scene too...

Dark Rika's voice wasn't Rika at all, it sounded more like Tamura Yukari trying her best to sound scary. ^^; For what it's worth, that Dark Rika voice is the one that does the episode previews too, so I was prepared for it. But still, it felt really unnatural.

(Rather, when Rika said "Akasaka" right after the wind gust (before her voice totally changed) in a calm and low Rika voice, I thought that would've made a perfect voice for Dark Rika, too bad )

Any particular reason for the delay? did they lose a translator or something?

The wait is killing us, seriously. We're all literally dying a bit more each day that goes by without it .

[WinD] is cursed I tell 'ya! cursed by Oyashiro-sama!

two translators this time
One went missing, and the other is on vacation and busy with real life stuff...

Anyway, I went ahead and watched the next episode, but there was so much talking, I understood very little. =( I'll just re-watch it again when a sub comes out.

Maybe this is a good point for the anime to get licensed and for them to just stop subbing the series altogether? I wouldn't mind .

The sub is out now.
Okay, so I can safely say that I guessed Rika was Oyashiro-sama in the first arc. I mean, there a fair amount of hints...

I gotta admit I really enjoy watching these episodes late at night, it gives me the chills like no stupid Hollywood movie. Getting back onto the episode we finally got introduced to a few influential people in the town. Mion already seems to be developing that cold personality when it comes to the Dam project. I wonder if this is during the time period when Rena had moved away. Also for them to get such leaks about the PSIA's plans they must be extremely well connected. There's no doubt that something is inside Rika having her say all those things.

... Wow. My hopes of a logical (non-supernatural) explaination are slowly being chipped away. Unless everyone in Hinamizawa suffers from MPD, there may really be an Oyashiro-sama and whatever's inside Mion. I like killerloli's idea of a rivalry between the two, also. Interesting.
Although my theory of a military experiment isn't quite dead yet

I do not think there is a logical explanation for this. Ever since the last arc, they've been pointing it out that all this is happening because of supernatural stuff. This messed up a lot of my theories.

Anyway, even though this episode wasn't that eventful, it was really informative, so I give it a 9. Just Rika's uber cuteness could've given this episode a 9 alone. But I do agree that she is somehow connected with Oyashiro-sama.

Now I'm off to read the TIPS.
