Everyone died except Keiichi, who is this guy ? Haruhi ?
It's logical to want this town eradicate (she's so creepy) but all the villagers must be killed too ? Anyway the death isn't very important since these guys can do what they want even after being killed, they're so incorrigible...

Ok, I know one thing - I know nothing.
Ok there are things that connecting every arc and making one story, but in the other side... Everything is senseless.
I have a feeling that this is a some kind of timeloop (endless eight? Everything is happening in every possible way)

Very interesting arc.
I'm still trying to figure out what the constants and vairable between each story.
Nice to learn what happen when someone is possessed by the demon.

PLOT HOLES ! PLOT HOLES EVERYWHERE ! meh -_-

*sigh although this chapter had finally brought back the 'scary/thrilling' atmosphere which the last chapter lacked imo, but the final execution in this episode was so messed up. why there were so many questions left unanswered ? The first chapter is still my favorite

As soon as they were standing over the river I knew someone was gonna fall... but the railing is totally secure, right? How did she manage that?

Damn, that ending ruled, he wished for the whole town to disappear and they did so he has to live with the guilt for the rest of his life.

I think this is a loophole thing.
From the same link and the same start, as the choices change, we get to see the possible futures, which can never conclude themselves with everyone alive, someone always dies.


I noticed that near the end where Keiichi was about to fall off the bridge, he remembers the penalty game and the club. I definitely started thinking of this "loophole" theory.

For some reason, I enjoyed Keiichi going insane, idk why.

But seriously, volcanic gasses? This is ringing bells from Stephen King's The Mist. Maybe that's the explanation of everything? I got to wait and see.

You could've wished for $999999999999999999999999999999999999 and instead you wished for a bunch of random people to die.

Everything is unanswered -__- Interesting ending. This time Keiichi was able to wish for everyone's death - except everyone died anyway (except him).

wtf this is getting very stupid. this mc is truly pathetic, weak minded and timid. always getting manipulated, he just feels like a complete joke. what kind of murderer confess his crime to almost everyone he sees?

yup, denies like a little bitch when satoko calls him a murderer. granted, he may/may not have killed rika, didn't he confessed about killing satoko's uncle? doesn't that make him a murderer?

Wow, Keiichi actually lived this time? This was a strange arc, considering everytime he wished someone dead, they actually died.

So far every single ending has left me with my jaw hanging wide open in shock. Though I have to say, this arc is probably my least favorite. In both of the other arcs we got answers. In this one we never found out why Keiichi thought he killed Satoko's uncle and didn't go to the festival. We never find out who killed Rika or Tayano. We never find out what happened to the photographer. We never find out why Keiichi has that strange power to curse people. This arc is also the only one that I'm not on Keiichi's side at all.

It seems like Satoko has the power to defy laws of physics (with that push from the bridge scene) lel.

Also, Keiichi proves that he is the stupidest smartass MC I've ever seen.

For this arc, the author obviously wants us to believe that Keiichi has the power to kill people by just wishing it but I'm not taking the bait. There are many episodes left so I hope that a believable explanation will be revealed later on.

This is starting to piss me off in so many levels... jeez
Keiichi: he can't possibly get more dumber than this in the next arc. He just can't... I ended up finding it funny how he openly started to confess his murders to everyone lol FFS When talking to Satoko he was blatantly BRAGGING about it.
UNf*ckingBELIEVABLE....
And don't even get me started with that scene with Rika and the crows...

When Satoko pushed him off bridge I actually paused the video just to sink than in...
HOW DAFUQ? The bridge has a metal protection, I CAN F*CKING SEE HOW IT GOES OVER THEIR HEADS! And what's wrong with your right hand Keiichi? Are you physically unable to grab a rope with 2 hands?

The first arc was the peak of the show. It has gone extremely downhill since then... Disappointed :|

everyone he wishes for dies, that reminded me of death note
the gas leak was pretty random considering nothing like that was mentioned on a previous arc
But i wonder if that was some kind of punishment from the god, maybe he didnt get his curse or something....

I can't say I agree. I think the Mion/Shion arc was the best one yet.

Anyways, out of all characters having focus in arc so far, Satoko had it worse.

Anyways, this was by far the weirdest arc. I am more confused than ever. Hope the next arc is better.

I was thinking, what if everyone in the show is already dead and the village is some sort of limbo where they keep reliving the last month before the volcanic gasses killed them? It doesn't quite explain why things change every new arc, but still.

In regards to what ReilaNimu said, I feel like that is very possible at this point.

the mystery is intense and i need answers.
was all of this just a fever dream? that would a explain the randomness. and how satoko could have gone to rikas house, put on clothes and get back to keiichi (why would she even do that?) within two minutes. i don't know why this bugged me the most.

On a rewatch and I have to say, I'm digging this series all over again. You can see the way it foreshadows, hints and outright deceives when you have knowledge of the full picture. This just makes me wish I hadn't seen it the first time.

Nice turn of events.Anyway, the next one will be a time killing chapter, so expect a filler episode.

Atleast Keiichi saw Satoko nude. He is one step closer to getting laid. Also, that butt whack. Oshiri penpen indeed.


Without change,we end up becoming the very person we hate.


I was dead until the moment I met you. I was a powerless corpse pretending to be alive. Living without power, without the ability to change my course, was bound to lead me to a slow death.

This anime is all sorts of confusing, but I really wanna see where it ends up. Here's part of my theory on what happened this time:

Mion, Rena, Satoshi, and possibly Riko are all part of this demon-god's crazy murder cult; as long as they keep sacrificing, torturing, etc. they will be saved from death. When Keiichi killed Satoko's uncle, the murder-cult found out and word got to the three girls, who covered for him by pretending they saw him at the festival. At this point, he unknowingly became part of Oyashiro's fun-time-murder-cult, so they all keep watch and kill anyone who threatens him. I'm not sure if this Oyashiro-sama they're following is an actual supernatural force or if they're just a crazy cult, but I have a hunch that there could be some truth to their "god" if the whole town really got killed.

+1. Just +1.

This is shaping up to be the sort of story that only got popular for the shock value and promise of underlying mystery. The other arcs were alright, but this one went just about as stupidly as it could get. So much bullshit was slathered on, with seemingly the only excuse being "lol it's a mystery! You're not supposed to know what's going on so we can do whatever we want!"

I'm sure some of the information regarding Oyashiro-sama's curse is relevant. It's fairly obvious that the breaking of the statue's hand is relevant. Keiichi being so "smart" that he decided to murder an obvious criminal on the night of a festival and Sakoto pushing him clean through a guard rail, among so many other things, simply has no reason to ever be relevant. It only happened because the plot needed it to, consistency be damned.

This episode was really strange, for me it left much answers that were not responded nor explained, like what really happened to Rika's uncle? Or why she still can see him of he's probably death? Thpse questions don't let me sleep at night. The other's arcs in higurashi always ended preetly "closed" let'say that way, like the cherry on the top of the cake, but this arc it was just a cake on top of other cake, that's why for me this was one of the worst end-arc I ever seen in higurashi untill this point. And just one more thing, keichi in this episode appeared dumber then the other episodes, like he starts to confess is crime to every person he sees, and that is just dumb. (sorry if my english is a bit bad).

Wut? I give up trying to make predictions about this show. They just killed off everyone except Keiichi. The supervisor mysteriously commits suicide and the cop goes missing, wow.

I wonder if the new arc will continue off with everyone else dead or is it gonna reset everything again.
