I don't think it is actually an hallucination a la L4-5, but rather a sense of "deja vu" which is actually not real.
And perhaps they also wanted to have an excuse to put a character looking crazy in the previous episode preview.

But I agree it's meant to show how very different from Rika's expectations that world is.

Nekogoroshi is a standalone side story.

Rei Episode 1 is a comedy side-story.

Rei Episodes 2-4 will be an arc that is a sequel

Rei Episode 5 is a comedy side story

(do I have this right?)

It just explores a small mystery in Hinamizawa. It doesn't go into any of "Keichi/Shion/Rena Kills ___"

I never really got Nekogoroshi-hen, that man down in the quarry... I never got who he was x) He looked like one of Takanos minions though.

I figured it was where TOKYO was storing the poisonous gas in case of an outbreak.

We've only covered 1/3rd of the story. Episode one didn't even finish all of chapter one in the sound novel.

And it's five chapters long. That said, I hope they won't cut Bernkastel once again...

Argh, I understand the whole Rena L4~5 thing, but i's just weird to see. It does seem like it's put there for the whole infamous paranoia scenes back from season one to contrast with the previous comedic episode. Or something. I keep giggling as I'm re-watching the OVA and can't think properly.

But chapter one is pretty much 1/3rd of Saikoroshi-hen, so it makes sense. There's no way they can cut out Fredrica Bernkastel out from this, either.

Re-watching this subbed for fun, I still lol at the talk about K1's furry seal "little bro". >_>;

I liked this episode...although I'm curious. If this takes place after Matsuribayashi-hen, why was Hanyuu a ghost when they were riding their bikes home? And after watching this episode I find myself liking the art style more.

What is this "L4-5" you speak of ? I'm not very familiar with the Higurashi short code descriptions even though I've watched all the series.

Also, could someone explain what the whole "showa" thing Rika was talking about ?

Just finnished watching episode 2 for a second time now. The new OP fits perfectly coming in just after Rika has her accident with the truck, the symbolism and choice of images makes alot more sense now then when it was first used in the completely comedic episode 1 and the new theme song, while not as powerful as the first 2, is still good and is growing on me the more I listen to it.

As for the rest... I honestly can't really find fault with anything in this episode... I have to give it a solid 10. It hits all the right spots for what I've come to expect from this series. I havent read/played the original digi-novels so I can't compare, but I'd say this was a very good start to this final chapter in the Higurashi saga. About the only thing I'm pissed at is now I have to wait 2 damn months to see the next episode.

L4 and L5 are levels for the Hinamizawa Syndrome. 5 is the highest and 4 is the second highest. The higher the level, the worse the condition is.
