So far both endings have left me with my jaw hanging wide open in shock.

A few things I'd like clarification on: are these not so much different timelines as they are different scenarios? Meaning that in the first version both Mion and Rena (and possibly the other two girls) were responsible for the deaths, but in this version only Mion was responsible?

I get the feeling poor Keiichi is going to die in every scenario.

Didn't enjoy it as much as the first arc, but that ending was worth it

When Mion said that Shion is still alive, I thought that she kept her alive after torturing her by pulling out her intestines. I'm disappointed tbh but still, that last scene scared the hell out of me.

At the end... nothing made any fuck*ng sense whatsoever...
Why dafuq did they even show Rika headstabbing herself to death if there's no follow up?

This arc was a bit disappointing. Still good... but disappointing.

I was literally like this at the end:

I was watching with a couple of friends and have finally gotten through the first two arcs. Holy mother, Mion scared us shit-less, especially at that final moment we were screaming for minutes literally. As if Rena-chan at the door wasn't scary enough omg.

This arc didn't make too much sense for me. I kind of zoomed out of the whole thing and didn't grip me anywhere near as much as the last arc did. 1st arc = 8/10 2nd arc = 5/10

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.
To think I posted this four years ago and I still have no idea of why that scene was featured at the start of the arc.

Hope they explain it in the next episodes.

I think you are talking about the scene where she used the knife in front of.... ?
In case thats what you are talking about ,yes it will be solved and explained. But most of the stuff happening will find an answere in season 2.

This episode was great. Though, the ending wasn't adapted too well from the visual novel.

I guess that's the curse I have to bear, since I read the VNs first. Everything seems a bit rushed, in the anime

I’m actually surprised at how no one is pointing out how stupid these characters are. Their actions make no sense, whatsoever. Watching this episode made me lose brain cells.

Oh, so Someone is able to change bodies now? Now I understand why that photographer's gf was acting all horny in the beginning.

Mion sucks. And this show ain't giving me any answers. About the different arcs ad such.

So, if I am right, if Keiichi gave the doll to Mion, Mion would have actually went with him to a restaurant(not the one Shion has) and Keiichi wouldn't have met Shion. Am I right?

(If Mion received the doll, Mion would have stayed in the group and she would have gone with Keiichi to restaurant).

But I am getting quite bored. This sucks.

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.
