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.

So all along the mean one was Shion.

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.

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.

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.

Meh. I don't find series creepy or scary at all.
And I don't really like the idea of demons to explain why do they kill people. I'd prefer them to be just disordered maniacs. And I don't like this uncertainty of Mion like "I'm going to kill you"/"Nuh, just kidding".

Hopefully the next arc will get more interesting. The first arc was better imo.

Things that trigger Keiichi's death flag are adding up.
So far:
> Assisting Ooishi-san. 'Cause that old dude doesn't care what happens as long as he gets results.
> Suspecting/angering or lying to Rena. Once she gets that cleaver the Higurashi will cry.
> Not keeping Mion happy. It's pretty much clear now that he needs to start dating this one or something so the demon doesn't awaken.

Holy shit, what the fuck happened. I was ready to see him tortured, but eh, in the end he didn't got tortured. It was good anyway.

I don't understand the scene at the beginning of this itteration. I rewatched it and I still don't understand why Rika killed herself with a knife. Or was it not in that arc?

Also, who was it at the end? Mion, Shion or Mion ghost? I mean both were dead and Oishi said that there was a bit too much walking corpses. I'm not sure anymore in what consist the malediction.

Rena in this arc was acting too much normal, it almost disturb me.

Here's what we know though :

- Takano, the nurse that accompanied the photographer to the Watanagashi, was in fact already dead. Was it a fake one, an imposter?

- Mion and Shion are part of a Yakuza family that worship a demon (forgot his name). Mion is bear the mark of the demon, designating her has the next family leader. Are her parents dead? She said during the episode that she was now the leader. And it's been a while since I remarked that during the OP, when we see the two sister facing herself in water, the one that look like Mion have a weird scar/tattoo in the back, it surely is this mark.

- Rika and Satoko family were both killed by the malediction. Maybe that's why they got killed. Mion was screaming on the ladder that they were cursed.

I think it's both Mion and the demon, as until she stuns Keiichi, she fought it for control (the resistance to killing Keiichi). She also told Keiichi to stay away because if he saw her again the demon would be possessing her dead body. This probably IS what happened to Takako, and the photography dude somehow triggered it.

The first two arcs kinda gave me the idea that the tragic fates will always be avoidable. In arc one, Keiichi began to behave like Satoshi. In arc two he didn't give Mion the doll AND he didn't stay away from Mion like she told him to. (These are beyond angering this Oyashima dude initially).

that was a really bad idea watching this before i go to sleep -.- but that's what amusing in horror : p when Mion called keichii from his house, i suddenly felt that this idiot shouldn't go and talk to her i mean she sais DON'T COME CLOSER TO ME and then BAM she stabbed him, like i kinda expected that. But i didn't know there were zombies in this anime, i mean coming back after death, that's cool dude, no wonder no one was able to solve that arc from the second part

So this is the last of this arc, and.. what exactly happened? Did Keiichi really die at the end? Was it a demon who committed all these crimes? What happened to Shion? Mion is the one who died in the well, and Mion was the one in the cell while Shion was the one who knocked Keiichi out? Shion is also the one who died from jumping down the building? o.O Confused as fuck.

So I thought semi-well, the city is a huge sect.
And who breaks some rules, as long as outsiders, get tortured and killed by the main families who (as they say) have a demon sleep within them, that Oyashiro-Sama guy.
So, Mion was jealous to Rena and the demon got that emotional breach and got out, beginning to make Mion kill those people.
But.
At the end, the cop said that that Cotton night, Tanako was already dead, so she, as a demon, lured them in and gave himself the pretest for killing people.

We're not sure if Keiichi really died at the end, but I guess no, because a torture like that requires some time, and it's impossible that no one heard Keiichi screaming, unless Mion/Oyashima already stabbed him and such.
At the end, Mion was only a vehicle for the demon to take act..

Based on a visual novel and that as apparently one of the bad endings, don't worry it'll make more sense later.

Till now this anime is a real WTF.
It reminds me of the anime Amnesia and Another. Another bc it's about a curse where lots of people die, Amnesia because of all these arcs. I bet everything in this anime gets explained in the end, just like Amnesia and Another.

The way Keichii got killed really disappointed me, I thought he was getting tortured, but instead he got stabbed, and after that he was still alive and you're still not sure if he's dead yet.. I'm a sadistic bitch, I prefer tortured characters hehe.. >:3

I bet every arc tells another story, and every arc is another reality. Like a parallel universe or something. That's probably the reason why Rena was a normal girl in this arc. I haven't seen the next arc yet but I think one of the other friends is possessed by an ogre this time..
I hope this'll make you understand more; but I think that in the end of this season everything'll be explained, if not, they'll explain in season 2! :)

I think this is the end of the second arc - without spoilers, do they ever connect besides just eventually fleshing out the history of the curse etc.?

As much as I like the characters, I dislike the universe resetting every few episodes unless its COMPLETELY necessary in order to blow my mind later. The universe resets' discontinuity is distancing me from the characters and there's stuff on my watch list I'd like to get to :)

The horror quirks make me giggle but I don't care about the characters anymore after 2 universe resets... dropped.
