It seems to me that the ep was almost hastily put together.

It wasnt as polished as the other arc's endings. In fact this entire arc really hasnt been to the quality of suspence as the others.

I dont know if the game was like that, since i havent played it 'yet'. But if anyone can give me a heads up if im right..that this was a "slow"(and i use that word lightly) arc.

Edit: You know Deku Kirby .......i thought i was the only one that would notice that. *ominous music plays*

I have no idea what to give this episode. I don't even know what to think about it. But wow, just WOW. Then ending was just... WEIRD! But that's not saying much considering the last 2 arc endings. I'll have to come back to figure out what I'll give this episode. Some of the facial distortions were a bit... to much... But overall, another great ending for an arc. I also find it kind of funny and ironic how:

Well, I'll come back and think of some theories after I get over the overall shock of the episode.

I loved the suspence in this episode but some things in it were really messed up, alas. And I am again confused as hell.

Extremely weird and bizzarre. I understand there was more explanation
in the game apparently for those who have played it but still you get the
feeling that nobody in this game can catch a break. At all. Good grief.

Can't wait for the next two arcs. This will be the all-time mess with
your head series for sure.

Is it safe to assume that the gentleman found in the bag in the beginning of this chapter was Satoko's uncle?

No. Unlike the past two arcs that happen in real time. The person in the bag is Rina (Ritsuko) who is...

Anywho, See post 51 in the TIPS thread for details:

Also when KJ-san unlocks them, I would see three post in the TIPS thread that retain to this EP. They're not TIPS perse but 2 epilogues and the credits to this chapter. It'll mess with your head more XD

Mmm, I honestly didn't like this episode at all. Too many irrational things on Keiichi's part that had me going "Oh geez" throughout.

Meh, I decided to give the ep. a 9 since I didn't like it as much as the last two endings. Besides, eps. 11 and 12 are the 10's in this arc, for me at least.

Anyway, here's something I found interesting after reading the TIP.

Ummm..... that interview was.... very creepy, though I can see why it wasn't included.

Spoiler for interview:

The Rika scene looked like it got a bit of censorship. Here's hoping for a dvd release uncut.

lol this ending was rather unexpected. I didn't like it as much as the other endings and I can't seem to find any logical explanation behind everything other then Keiichi = god? lol

also wth were Rena, Mion, and Shion >.< They made like one appearance each in this arc.

Things won't go smoothly when he wakes up and hears that everyone did die xD, he's going to flip.

Wow, now I know why you guys were so mad they didn't include the interview. Though I can see why they wouldn't include it, having some people listen to an old tape for 10 minutes would've been pretty boring.

But they could still make it a DVD extra, not a fully animated scene, but just the recording. I remember they had 15 minute audio segments on the Midori Days DVD, so it's not entirely impossible.

Maybe it wasn't as well done as it could have been, but still an amazing episode just based on what happened.

That epilogue that kj1980 posted (thanks for that btw) was also very nice, too bad it wasn't in the anime.

I don't see why some people are fussing over this episode, to be honest.
Just watched it, and i thought it was stellar. Of course, i haven't read the manga (i'd LOVE it if it came out in english - anyone know any plans for that to happen?), or played the game, but as an anime - only watcher, that was awesome.
Of course there were dodgey bits, but mainly animation related - i had to cringe at some shots of Keiichi. Also

quite annoyed me.
However, for the majority of the episode, it really did tug at the heart strings for me, and twist everything a little more, just to make it a little more confusing for the answer arcs.
I still think the watangashi-hen arc ending was the best of the lot, but this one is really pushing it. It was extremely fast paced, extremely NSFW (only realised that when my parents were in the room when i was watching it ¬_¬; ), and extremely emotional - you could really feel Keiichi's pain and sorrow, and Satoko's bewilderment at the situation.
I'm really loving this series so far, and hope that the next chapter is just as good! Just with better animation....

Well this ep certainly seems to point towards a supernatural influence.

Episode 13 just gives you even more wtf's.

This'll be the main chapter for me that'll be explained. In a way, in the end it makes sense about what happened.. its just, wtf. ^^;

Ah well, one chapter down without a Keiichi death.. or maybe he'll die when its being explained, who knows.

OK, now that I've seen this episode (gave it a 7 because it did felt rushed) and read the TIPS, I'm starting to believe that there might be something supernatural at work here. Of course it doesn't help since I'm playing Project Zero (that's Fatal Frame to the US gamers) 2 and 3 and the parallels at work here is a bit freaky.

I gave it a 6. I can usuallly look over the blemishes in the animation cuz I'm really here for the plot, so that didn't even factor in on my grade. Originally, I was planning on giving it a 1 or a 2 because it wasn't really that good at all, imo... most disappointing episode yet (but maybe it didn't help that the game players were hyping this arc and the animation studio really dropped the ball here...)

In the end, I gave it a 6, mostly because I know a lot of important things happened, and I get a feeling once I watch it again a few more times, it'll start to grow on me (i hope).
