Revival time! I've started watching this and I just finished episodes 4 and 5 (@_@ holy shit)
I'm not quite sure I understand the way the "question arcs" are being told. Are these completely separate timelines, or a retelling from a different perspective? (Or would it be a spoiler if you told me?)
Anyway, I've kept myself in the dark about spoilers, so it's speculation time!
At first I was thinking Rena and Mion were just schizophrenic 'cause of the personallity shifts, but now something's up with the other girls. What with the way the townspeople people are following Shion is making me think that perhaps the whole town is some sort of cult, and that each year at the festival, someone is chosen to be the "new" Oyashiro.
And props to keiichi for acting somewhat like a real human being would in such a screwed up situation.
Also, in none of the arcs, do I predict a good end for keiichi. ;_;
<Kenzichu> everyone died!
