I really paused my playback where Mion is going to torture Keiichi. And then after 5minutes, I've played it back just to have a deep breath in that 5 minutes. Fortunately, it doesn't happen. LOL!

I'm really getting tortured in this series. Arghh! I'm still watching it in one-go. I hope I can last till the last episode..

Btw, I'm kinda confused in this chapter. What's the relevance of Takano being alive even though the autopsy said that she had died 24 hours ago before she was burnt? And how come DEMON Mion is still there. And Mion is also found at the well. So Shion, Mion, DEMON, are different persons having each different body. So there are 3 look alike? Mion and Shion dead and DEMON alive? LOL! I'm kinda confused, but that's it for this episode for now.. XD

Just where did she come back from the dead at the end?!
This episode made my heart jumping in and out of my throat. First, I thought everything was going to be ok, then we gets stabbed, but he lives to be at the hospital, then...she appears. -.-

Damnit! Don't die without my permission!

@7:26 when Mion said "I give up", for a moment I expected Rika and Satoko to open the door and say "We're ALIVEEEEEeeee ... this was all a joke" ... than I figured out that it wasn't going to happen ^^;;

WOW @ Rena ... this ep really changed the image I had of her.

First let me say:ARRRRRRGH wow O_@

Then:I kinda expected there would be a demon involved. And in the opening credits you can see that "carved demon" Mion mentioned .
How can Kei-chan die with a blow to his finger after he's survived a knife stabbed in the stomach? Something doesn't make any sense here... ._.
Then again,there's probably more than one nail. X_X

Ok, so here's my possible solution.

Now, I believe the "Demon" was actually Oyashiro-sama. Because the whole story is about the curse of Oyashiro-sama.
In episode 6, Takano Miyo (who suppose to be dead) asked if Keiichi believes in curses. Oyashiro-sama could've taken the form of Takano, although I don't really see the point why he does so because Takano didn't have an important role in the arc.

Then again, Oyashiro-sama isn't human, so he could be more than 1 individual, meaning he could also have been the demon who took over Mion's body. I believe this explains why the demon Mion was still alive, while the real Mion was lying dead in the well.

Wow, this was one creepy episode. o.o It's beginning to get more confusing-what was up with Takano and Mion? And apparently the next episode is the start of a new arc? Oh well, the answers are going to be in Kai, but the suspense is killing me already.

Gezzz, like someone said earlier, "I hope I last through the series!" Yea, I'm agreeing with everyone when I say, I'm a bit confused. What do the arcs mean anyways? And why dose Kei have to die every arc? Douche!

Man that scene at the end scared the shit out of me! I think this is the first time I've ever been scared by an anime before. It was like 1am and I was in the dark when I watched it. 0_o My Fingers were twitching the whole night.

I didn't like this arc as much as the last one. Keichii was so stupid to follow Mion in the first place. Rena and Keichii were just acting like everything was normal, they were still friends. Mion killed their two other friends, she even admitted to it, why were they acting so damn normal.

And the whole them being killed before the last time they were seen doesn't make much sense to me. My mind is still too busy trying to wrap that last scene. Im getting the creeps just thinking about it.

Geez, I can't wait till they finally sar explaining things. Of course the one anime I didn't spoil myself with turns out to be the most confusing.

Love this shit, fun and confusion have the same levels. I guess I'll watch about 4 eps a day from now on... When I'm free that is.

Is this the end of this arc btw?

This anime does have some supernatural elements to it after all :D
Overall, I liked the first arc better, but this one was amazing nonetheless.

I'm guessing that Oyashiro-sama may actually be something completely different that has some connection to the ogre blood. Lets assume everyone in the town has ogre blood like previously suggested then Oyashiro-sama or some other "god" might have the power to control any and all people living in the village. Thats kind of how everyone finds out about secrets that only one or two towns people should know about. Once one person over hears Oyashiro-sama finds out and can just take over anyone else's body to finish off whoever needs to die. It's either that or everyone in the village just goes nuts when they know your lying to them.

I was feeling the same way too when Keichii said Mion was still his friend. She killed your friends and a whole bunch of other people by pulling out their organs and you still consider her your friend!

In agreement that the first arc was better - though I did enjoy this episode even if it did not make too much sense concerning who was alive or not.

So is this supposed to be a second arc? Are we like starting from the beginning now with a different possibility? Why are people who are supposed to be dead alive, and why is Keichi re-learning all this stuff he knew last episode? I'm so confused...

Seriously what was the point of the opening scene for episode 5? Where does Rika killing herself fit into the arch?

Also I think Mion and Demon Mion are in the same body. When the police raided the place, Mion jumped into the well as well and "died". As Mion said or Demon Mion, "the next time you see me, stay away because I will be only a corpse that a demon possess" or somewhat.

The thing about the nails to each joint is probably just the start of her method because she did say that they were killed in the most cruel and agonizing death. As a demon, I think he knows how to kill someone ... and with that, I think Keiichi is dead =(

Wow this ending is much more scarier than the first one. Mion's demon side is truly frightening. I still like Shion over Mion though ^^.

Man, it sure was agonizing watching the part when Keiichi was about to be nailed in his fingers. I really have some problems when it comes to blood and your hands...

Anyways, this arc added a bit more of the supernatural element to the show, which is kinda cool. Just hope they won't over-do it.

I'm really excited/terrified to see what this show will come up with next time to keep my scared O_O

Not bad, but I definitely liked the first arc better, it was less confusing and more suspenseful. I wonder what the next arc has in store.

I don't get any of the story. It's too confusing. Someone was dead before they actually went into the sacred tool place. Now they're saying that mion didn't stab him.

My guess is that Mion killed Shion the night in the basement, and put her in the well. Then Mion dressed up like Shion and was carried out on the gurney. The next time Oyashiro was able to control her body he stabbed Keiichi, not sure what evokes his power of control yet. After he lost his control Mion realized what she had done to Keiichi and killed herself. But being dead doesn't keep Oyashiro from controlling her body one last time to complete the yearly curse.

But man is Keiichi an idiot. Mion during the almost-torture scene says that the next time you see her she will not be in control. So what does he do when he sees her outside of his window? He goes down and gives her a big hug, the silly guy.

Also the cop said that Takano was dead before the night at the shrine, so maybe she was controlled by Oyashiro and made Shion and Keiichi go into the shrine. Or she has a twin sister herself. Someone else could have dressed up like her but there's no one with a similar face that I can think of.

My first guess was that everything was actually Shion's doing. She dressed up as Mion the whole time. So the one in the cell was Mion in fact. After the almost-torture scene, Shion killed Mion and threw her in the well. She dressed up as Shion again and got carried out by the cops.
A few days later she tried to kill Keiichi and eventually killed herself.

However the last scene destroyed my theory, since there are 2 things which don't fit in.
1. Takano was already dead, when they sneaked into the shrine. So who was that ("fake") Takano at that time?
2. Mion (or maybe Shion) showed up at the last seconds only to finally kill Keiichi, despite being dead already.

A third thing could be, that Shion shouldn't be able to know about the doll in the beginning.. but well, it's not impossible for her to know.

There's definitly something supernatural going on.


After thinking about it again, it looks like my theory is pretty stupid.
This Anime is just freaking complicated.

The almost-toture scene was really creepy. I personally thought that Mion was gonna get her rape on. She so coulda done it, I know I would ;D

jk jk thats gross

Anywho, the last scene made me literally say "OH SHIT" out loud. Stab wound, 15 nails, and then death? Hell to the fucking no! And as for that last bit about Mion Takano already being dead is just too confusing and it doesn't fit into the storyline so I'm just gonna consider it "unessential" and forgeta bout it lol. Maybe they just wanted to put some mystery at the end of the arc

Well this chapter was really confusing to say the least, the first one was way scarier and had a much darker atmosphere too.

This was just too weird for my taste, though I must say I really love Mions crazy laughter :D

I also believe that it was shion impersonating mion, in shion's character bio it says she likes to carry around a taser, and what did she use to knock him out the second time? a taser.
