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. ;_;

All I can say is just keep watching, you will understand everything that is going on in time. :)

Speaking of Rei, episode 2 has me back in WTF-mode.
Spoiler :
Hey I know, let's ride our bikes at full speed in the middle of the road!
Brilliant job, Rika. Brilliant. Really.
Been alive for 100+ years now and she still hasn't learned not to play in the street.

On a related note, where the crap did everyone go? >_>;

/waits impatiently for episode 3

You gotta remember, whenever rika switches dimensions, or time travels, or whatever, little things change. This time there are a lot of big changes. Does this mean things will go well? I'm betting: not. :|

First episode was jokes. I laughed so much. Sea bear. lol

Not quite as freaky as the first season, but we got suspense and the feeling that something bad's gonna go down soon at least. (and if I've been properly spoiled, it will)

Dude, the artbox that comes with the first volume is well worth the extra cash.

I hate OVAs. They should have made this a regular series so we didn't have to wait like a month for new episodes. :x

And finally the conclusive ending of the series (Daybreak Chapter doesn't count) is up and subbed. Not much action happening by any means, but still an enjoyable episode.

Nothing but monologues...

I just hope the last episode is like the first one.
