From the previews, it looks like they are going straight into story instead of touching up the last few pieces, which probably means they might just get Akasaka to show up "randomly" like in Minagoroshi-hen, instead of the whole event in kakera-musubi...(which, kinda defeats the purpose of "setting the gameboard up for the last time", but then again, they never used the dice/gameboard imagery in the anime, unlike in the game)

And Teppei has appeared in the Dark Rika corner too much...it's like his 3rd time now

Why do people think Satoshi is dead? There is nothing in the episode to implicate that Takano did anything to Satoshi she was just making a comment to Irie

Exactly.

We're not sure until it's comfirmed.

I think people would obviously think that Satoshi is dead, or transformed into a vegetable/guinea pig, considering how Takano was so insistent with Satoko, as she was already preparing the dissection procedure, despite Satoko was not "lost" in the L5, unlike Satoshi.

If you add the fact that Irie cannot argue against Takano's authority about the true research of the Irie institution, it is normal to speculate that Satoshi was taken as a sample, as he is nearly bypassing the point of no return.
The yamainu obviously covered Satoshi's "escape" (the false satoshi at the train station, for instance). So instead of using the same "excuse" for hozpitiliazing Satoko, they simply did another Onikakushi. 1 whole year, and Satoshi didn't appear yet, despite the C103

you can tell there are many indications that Satoshi isn't exactly in a good situation.

Indeed, no confirmation, but it is the most obvious thing you can imagine after seeing this.

Agree with Klashikari that things don't look good for Satoshi. If it was simply treating him then we would've heard something during the time we were looking at the series. Instead they made him 'vanish' and had his disapearance covered up. Either they attempted to treat him and the something went wrong or Takano got her way for another dissection.

Ire probably didn't have much choice on this one. He'd already shown the treatment could work so Takano could probably pull wanting to know more about the disease. Even if he wanted to help Satoshi there is a limit on his power in that situation.

Suppose its possible that he's alive, but doesn't look all that promising for him. Makes sense why they kept the bear from getting to Satoko when I think on it. Satoshi only had limited funds so if he bought the bear then he wouldn't have enough to escape. Wonder if they bought off the guy who sold it to keep quiet. Don't think it's a case of overthinking. Just looking at what we saw, Takano's desire for more information, and no sign of Satoshi during the series.

Not that I disliked the guy, but isn't much hope for him.

The preview was funny. Rena now has a third target. And in the corner, Chibi Hanyuu is making weird and silly sounds before sliding away. Rika, however, seems to have a serious hangover. Too much drinking, I assume.

Frequent enquirer H. Teppei is wondering about the true nature of Hanyuu. He heard that she's probably an alien from the M37 star cluster, and if that were true, is it possible for her to shoot beam rays from her breast, arms or her forehead? No wonder she run from that question
(Now, I don't think that M37 has a high probability to harbor intelligent life, it's estimated age is only about 300 million years. But about those beams, that's where I hope to learn more.)

Since the first series, i've always been quite amazed with Satoshi's character, so it was good to have more freedom with his character in this episode. At the moment i have no idea what's happened to him, though with how the first series was aiming at Satoshi's disappearance, i always thought it would have something to do with him leaving the village. Maybe it is that, i have no idea, though i do hope things regarding Satoshi will not be left like this, that's what i'm hoping.

Rika & Hanyuu scene dressed in white was rather unexpected, lovely scene.

I'll be staying away from that spoiler then. Thanks for the notification.

Especially with the 'disappearing after' scene.

lol, Keiichi's dad definitely got a lolicon fetish or something. Have you seen the camera shots directed at the girls' chests during their conversation?

Definitely.

Rika: “…Mi-. There is a stranger who is looking at us while mumbling about difficult things.”
Hanyu: “Auauau. …Rika, that person is no stranger.”

Ichirou: “…huh? Whoa!! Oh, I…I’m so sorry!! No, no, I’m not a stranger. Wahahahaha…!”

Rika: “…Yet, his eyes are hooked to my breast and my legs. Nipa~☆”

Ichirou: “No, no, I wasn’t looking in there! Please don’t tell the station officer-!! I was using this mirror to fix my hair…!!”

Hanyu: “….Ahahahahaha. I don’t understand what you are talking about, but I’m sure it’s something very funny.”
Rika: “I guess father and son really are alike.”

XD Does that mean Keiichi is also a lolicon.

If Ichirou wants to tape a bust, Rika is the last person he should point his camera at. Satoko is a better choice. She being an early bloomer.

Haha excellent. So that's how Keiichi ends up moving and their plan to secure his arrival in this world. Make use of his father's 'preferences' to lure the family there . That's Rika for you willing to do whatever it takes for victory.

After seeing some things in the series (like the Nekogoroshi-hen episode) wouldn't surprise me that being a lolicon runs in the family.
