Seeing as Takano works in the medical field and obviously has quite a bit of wit, I don't see it as impossible that she knows about Rena's condition and intentionally planted the parasite/maggot thing to freak her out more.

I like the way that theory explained Oyashiro-sama and possibly how Takano could be in the Shrine when she was already dead at the time (Watanagashi-hen). Although I am hoping that Higurashi doesn't turn out to be just a bunch of mentally unstable people stuck in a Groundhog's Day-esque environment, I find it pretty hard to believe that everything is the work of Parasites.

I don't like the explanation of 'parasites' very much, either -- seems fairly improbable.

However, we're two episodes away from the end of the show. Might be a little late to throw in red herrings.

Two episodes left for the anime, two arcs left for the plot.

True.

But they're not going to animate those arcs, so for all intents and purposes they should be getting ready to wrap up the show by the end of 26.

Obviously she's up to something, but just because she is doesn't mean her notes are fake. It's possible that she needs Rena to know what's really going on for some reason.
I'm not 100% convinced that she is telling the truth (maybe 70%, but I was wrong about the twin thing, so... ), but the parasites do explain an awful lot to be something that she made up herself.

I think they're half-truths. Either she doesn't know the full answer or is intentionally doing it. I have a hard tme believing the game would give you the true answer this early.

Notes for Shion and notes for Rena were completely different, like specifically prepared for each girl, they nicely coped with Shion's obsession with Satoshi and her grudges against her family and with Rena's delusional parasitosis. (Shion was sure it is all about Sonozaki's conspiracy, Rena is starting to believe in
Spoiler for (little thing from ep 25):
btw. I can't believe how many people took this seriously).

She has lots of notebooks, obviously. They could all focus on separate leads she has instead of lumping everything into one confusing heap.
It's possible that she did prepare them for each , but if that's the case, how did she know what would appeal to them? She has been researching Hinamizawa, but it's likely that the only two who know about Rena's condition are her father and Dr. Irie, and neither of them would tell her anything. Plus, she would have needed quite a bit of time to get all that stuff together.
Not saying you're wrong, just furthering discussion

Takano works for Irie. Getting her hands on the medical files for anyone in Hinamizawa would be cake for her. Plus, seeing as how there's no psychologist that we've seen, Irie probably took notes about mental state as well.

These are very good points. I'd forgotten about Takano working for Irie. I suppose the parasite theory will remain in the 'maybe, but probably not' bin.

Wow a lot of things came out in this episode. I so dont believe the stuff written in Takano journels. Its too neat it offers a perfect and clear account of the things going on in the town. As a matter a fact its too neat and i mean come on parasites. I cant wait to see how things end with Rena seems like shes starting to loose it. She so cute even when shes elbow deep in blood and body parts

It is just her research, so i would believe that some are real and some are just myths. Of course it is the most logical answer and since she seems to die in practically all the arcs, i would believe that there is a reason to kill her hence why some of her notes are real, but to make sense which one..no idea.

What is pretty much what happens, I think, with info we have of Watanagashi-hen (Oishii: "The dead are walking way too much around here...") and that "You didn't see me this night" on Tatarigoroshi-hen.

I can't even believe she is researching something. This research is just another lie to me... Just to instigate the children and the people of the village into madness

I do believe that in the last part they do show that Shion is Shion and that the one who was attacking Keiichi was Mion.

Something that I just thought: Why would Rena believe in that explanation for the "Oyashiro-sama's curse" if she said she already met with Oyashiro-sama? I mean, the parasites make the person go berserk, but not halluccinate, right?
