Okay, so this episode just really confused me. The last episode of the first arc scared me and it was awesome. But yeah, this one just confused me, it didn't scare me at all.

I was just sat here thinking, why are Keiichi and Rena so calm when they find out it was Mion that killed Satoko and Rika? Then, why isn't Keiichi like screaming his head off when she was gonna hammer the nail through his finger? That would really hurt..

But even though I was just sat here thinking of millions of sarcastic remarks throughout this episode, I really enjoyed it;D

Ok, now I'm confused. If someone is going to die, kill them off and be done with it. Stop bringing them back.

That was crazy. Sure, this arc wasn't as nerve-wrecking as the first one (to me) but it was still full of suspense. Not bad.

killing Rika is unforgivable

Indeed, there is no punishment in existance that would be enough to make up for killing two lolis, especially when one of them is as adorable as Rika ;_;

isn't is possible that they misidentified Takano's body in the first place ?
if a body is burned horribly, then you have to use teeth and dental records as identifiers.

Love all the foreshadowing they throw out there. This is the first show where I've had to repeatedly pause just to make sure I clearly read everything they said.

I feel the same way as everyone else...scared and confused. But of course, everything will hopefully make sense in the end. All I'm concerned about atm is that I don't miss any of the "important details".

I have no idea what's going on, the suspense and horror is killing me, and it's just getting more and more insane. With two arcs following the same pattern, I suspect I'll see another, what, 4 arcs doing the same? EACH ONE AS AWESOME AS THE LAST?

I have never been so riveted. 10/10 for me :)

Hahaha, such a troll ending. Keiichi's safe, everything's good except some contradictions in info. Then Mion crawls out from under the bed like the bogeyman and kills Keiichi. Lol. Tbh, I almost laughed XD

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

This, I paused it too.

I though this episode was rather poor. Underground torture chambers and dead people coming back to life? Come on, I thought this was better, more solid storytelling than that.

Wait, what was the point of Rika's suicide scene in the beginning of this arc/chapter? Unlike the scene of Keiichi killing Rena and Mion in the first episode, the suicide scene wasn't featured again.

Keiichi's recollection of the events was obviously altered in each arc. Therefore, we cannot totally believe in the narrator's version of each event, like how the whole thing with Myo was factually untrue since she must have been dead before entering the Shrine. This leads me to come up with one rule of thumb watching the following eps: Only believe in information that is A) Repeated over and over in every arc and B) Information from the detectives when he is giving it to Keiichi.

I'm beginning to question this anime's popularity.

Large portions of each episode are lame repeated content, and it honestly just seems like violence fetish porn.

Like, there's no story development going on.

I dont know if i can handle another 18 episodes of the characters telling me the exact same things.

Edited to Add: It isn't even that violent either.

Solv, it'll make sense after you watch Kai, but you should finish this one first. It gets gory around episode 18 ish.

Like i said, i've listened to the long ass story about the festival 3 times now.

I'm done. I'll watch an arc every now and then I guess, but seriously I can just watch Liveleak if i'm desperate to see people die.

Oh my god this episode is such a tease!
Mion stabbed Kechil was such a cheap shot. -__-
Mion more attacks were so psycho.
So many deaths happen.
Man Shion is so afraid. Really sad.
I hate this arc so much. Why a new arc already?
Idk this seires is getting good or not, but that episode left open plot holes.
2/5

So confused at the ending!!! So right after kei was finished talking to the oldman, Mion(ogre) pops out and kills him?
I Also know that Mion (possessed or not, still crazy in my book!) and Rena was crazy since the first arc but how come Rena seemed like a totally normal in this arc? o.o

The anime has been great so far; can't wait for some answers!

The only thing that bothered me this episode is how Kei followed Mion into a fucking dungeon after she admits to killing 2 of her best friends, along with many other people. COMMON SENSE SHOULD BE TELLING HIM NOT TO GO WITH HER.

Oh well. can't wait to watch the rest.

Too sad we didn´t get to see the beginning of the arc scene (the blue-haired girl stabbing herself in the neck).

I really got confused, Mion was the culprit, but when they visited her in the shrine, she spoke in third person, so I totally got confused over who was talking, Mion, Shion, or the demon?

Anyway, cool end of arc episode nonetheless, would´ve loved for it to be a bit gory, but damn good story.

Dat last scene. I guess Keiichi dies every arc.

Well, Keiichi is pretty stupid. 'Cause he went into the torture room like nothing bad was going to happen.

Rena's pretty innocent and smart this arc. And that slap was pretty cool. Keiichi deserved that!

Mion actually is the ogre.
And Mion and Takano were actually dead? Wow, I didn't expect that.

My mind is blown. Or as the explicit say it, mindfuck.

I'm rewatching the series, but even I got really confused with that. I'm pretty sure it gets cleared up later though =)
