HOLY FREAKING CRAP! This series just blows me away. The insanity just surpasses anything I've seen by far. *evil laugh* I should make an amv on this once I get enough footages. >:D

Episode 6. The plot about the dam incident gets brought up with some intriguing information.
It seems like Mion's And Shion's family are part of the yakuza, and Mion is going to be heir of it. Also it seems that town of Hinamizawa has one freaky history with the festival. It's the same premise; one dies and the other "dissappears". Though the one that "dissappears" gets sacrificed through the rippings of their innards. Ewww! :x

Also in this episode Shion dragged Keiichi to meet up with that photographer and his female companion to check out that locked, forbidden storehouse in which anyone who breaks in will get cursed. And you know those went in anyways! :o

Now comes the creepy part! Mion questioned Keiichi about what he did with Shion. The detective Oishi did the same thing. And that photographer and his female companion got killed. So by the 1 to 1 ratio, Shion and Keiichi might get sacrificed! :shock:


This episode is packed with LOTS of information which could be used to make connections for this chapter and last chapter!

I think I dreamed 7 or possibly 8 last night, 'ravioli' anyone? Has a OST or similar been released? I like the OP for the show.

I haven't heard any release dates for the OST, but yes the OP really rocks! I've Sound is really branching out! :D

Episode 7 was rather creepy in a sense that you must pay attention to the dialouge or else you're going to be lost. I think I need to watch it again. :oops:

Though I noticed some interesting tidbits that should prove to be useful.

The village chief dissappeared. According to Keichii's phone conversation with Shion, she confessed to the chief which she believed led to his dissappearence.

Keiichi in a sense did confess to Rika about the incident in the storehouse through the use of metaphors. Rika then dissappeared as well.

Rena's perception on finding clues in Rika's and Satoko's house was excellent. She's almost like a pint-size version of Sherlock Holmes. Rena is actually not a bad person after all.

That ladder scene where Mion was shaking it with Keiichi on top unfortunetly looked flat out bad. Not only the creepy, deformed wasn't really creepy, the lip-syncing was totally off. :?


Though at the end of the episode, Keiichi found out that...
...all that time on the phone, Shion has been missing after the festival. Which means that it was Mion who was on the phone the whole time! :shock:

odi's thoughts wrote:Na I think the ladder scene was hella creepy. The deformation made it look like she was transformig into somethingnot human... And as it goes on (this may be my imagination) it looks like what ever is posessing her it takes ahold more and more and with it she looked more and more deformed. The lip sync i think added to the "non human" thing that it wassent really she talking but "something" else. But then again. I do agree that it could have looked so so mutch better than it did. And if the lip cynk thing was not intentional I can only say "Foh Shame".

People Being mad with rage one second and happy like nothing happend the other is a thing we have seen ALOT of in this series. But all those times it felt like it still was the same character the whole time. With the ladder thingy it didnt feel like it was Mion at all. But as I said "something posessing her" For good or for bad.

On the other hand my thoughts may have been influenced by the fact that I thougt it was Shion at the foot of the ladder (or at the end someone imitating Shion based on what Keiichi found out) the whole ep untill I saw Angelx03 state otherwise.

I found out that "No blood" is a mistranslation. It's supposed to be "...that has to be it. That has to be it. That has to be it. That has to be it......" which actually makes more sense.

Actually according to the peeps who can really listen Japanese, episode 8 is the end of the Watanagashi chapter and next week is the start of the Tatarigoroshi chapter. According to the previous gamers, the Tatarigoroshi chapter is the most depressing chapter in the entire game. :shock:

I can't wait for these episodes! 8-)

Ahhh, episode 8. Now the real question.
Who the hell was impersonating Mion AND Shion?!! This chapter seems more supernatural than last chapter. :shock:


Next chapter is what gamers called a VERY depressing chapter.

I wish this series had an actual solid story vs. many different endings.

I thought the series ended by ep 3 lol :lol:
