THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------

FUCK YES, IT'S QUIZ TIME.

All in all it was a better adaption of the ending than I thought possible last week. For everyone who has been screaming for killer lolis these past 8 weeks (shame on you) this episode more than makes up for the relative lack of action in it's predecessors. Next up is the final arc of the second season, Matsuribayashi-hen, and barring any specials probably the last of Higurashi we'll see animated. Though I would kill for some animated Miotsukushi-hen.

Edit: If anyone's interested in the differences between the game and this episode, you can watch the PS2 game's version here (Nico Nico Douga, the full thing) or here (Youtube, in parts). It has less action than the episode, but it's longer, the deaths feel less rushed and the talk afterwards is better as well. It does contain some small hints about the next arc though, so be advised.

I think I cried. I think its cause Hanyuu was upset. I love auauau~
This was a really good episode though. I'm looking forward to learning about Takano again. Although I know what happens I still wish something bad would happen to her. But I guess I can feel bed for her. In some way.

Gah... that was crazy... well, Takano was crazy. Wanting to become Oyashiro-sama was retarded if you ask me. I didn't read the manga, so I had no idea how it was going to end or whatever. I hope the next arc will be good as well... but with a better ending.

To tell you the truth, I really love the episode. But I voted 'Like it!' and it's all thanks to Takano. :/ SHE'S A *bad word beep* I TELL YOU >.> So now we know she was the one who released the gas thingy and killed Rika&gang, which makes me even angrier.

And I was really hoping Rena would kill those "Tokyo" men with the hatchet's (whatever you call it) blade side, not the blunt side. T3T And I really cried when Keiichi died. Can't wait for the next arc! :3

Great episode, even though they all died.....TT_TT

I loved Rena in this episode. especially the part when she confronted takano. she knew all the right words to say and was clearly getting on Takano's skin.

More auauau from Hanyuu please!

I almost cried. Which is rare. D:

Takano's laugh is...really weird. o-o;

EDIT: I liked the irony in Shion begging for Satoko's life. Her words were very similar to Mion's from season one in the underground torture chamber. :3

Wow i must admit this might be one of the best episodes ever

Everyone died trying to save the others but sadly failed(i almost cried too)...The evil laugh at the end only goes well with Rena :D

God Rena was just win in this episode...she told Takano that she cant be Oyashiro-sama cause one exist and then just laughs in her face

So close Rika...go fight fate once more

The Red Truth is the only truth in the world

I kived Rena's verbal pwnage to Takano on how she can't be Oyashiro-sama. That was awesome.

That was seriously one of the best episodes in the whole series, first season included. So much emotion. I teared near the part before Rika got watanagashi'd.

Now onto Matsubayashi-hen!

Meh... crunchyroll was acting up on me, so i watched the entire episode with the sound and graphics out of sync. That kind of ruined it for me.
Nevertheless, it was a good episode. And Takano...
Never underestimate the 'minor' characters.

This episode is another example of why Rena is the best. I would just take her home if she kills Takano in the final arc.

I nearly cried a few times. Takano's laugh...meh...not what I expected. I really like Satoko's laugh for some reason.

some brief information on Takano: first of all, takano was not her real name. Her parents are in a car accident, mom died insantly, his father then deserted her. she was sent into an orphanage, but the orphanage treated takano real bad. one day, she and some friends escaped the orphanage. coincidently, she found $10 on the road, she then phoned her father’s friend, and she lived in her father’s friend from then on.
Her fahter’s friend was the one reseaching the sickness they had in Rica’s town, and takano was immediatly interested in it. Her father’s friend had some interesting theories about the sickness, but people around them all think its a joke and laughed at him. He died soon after becuz of the laughter. Takano then changed her original name to Takano and vowed to continues the research.
She then studied hard and got into a famous university.( the faculty was parasite). anyways, she wanted to establish a research facility in Ricaz town. the research facility as we all know was the clinic. just before the facility is establish takano met with Hanyuu, and challenged Hanyuu who was oyashirosama.
Shortly after the facility is established, the dam battle started between ricaz town and Tokyo. as we all know, the town’s people hated satoku’s parents for supporting the building of the dam. Shortly after Satoku’s parents got killed by Satoku. Satoku’s brother, Satoshi send Satoku into the facility(clinic) for medical checkup. And the result report that Satoku is already a late-period patient. They then tested the medicine of delaying the disease code name”C103″ on Satoku. and they got amazing results. [PS. the original plan was to dissect Satoku and treat her like a lab rat for researching, but rica begged the doctor not to do that]. but Takano had some problem with Rica father who was a supporter of her research. the reason behind it was: Rica’s mother convinced Rica’s father not to support Takano becuz Takano had an argument with her regarding of Rica’s fever. then of course Takano was pissed and had the same guy who killed Rica killed Rica’s parents. When studying Satoku’s disease, Takano was able to make a biological weapon, code name “H70″,this weapon’s effect can cause people to enter level 5 of disease right way( the symptom as we all know is people would scratch their own throat and die). When Takano’s reseach was in the climax, one of her main supporter died, the people in “tokyo” wanted to cancel the project in Ricaz town. Takano was pissed becuz she wasnt able to complete her father’s friend’s reseach.
Of course, Tokyo didnt cancel it right way, they give Takano three year to complete the reseach, but the time wasnt enough. But a woman approached Takano regarding the research, and Takano decided to work with her. She basically decide to take revenage on TOKYO becuz she knows that if she succeed in her research, TOKYO is going to take credit for it. It was the begining of the mass masscare that happened in ep 13.(she had to kill rica, the queen infector,first).

This episode is great... completely in spite of the fact that everyone ends up getting owned in the end

You know why? Because you can just tell that the next reincarnation WILL be the last...

oh and hanyuu, crazy cute xD
Rena standing up to Takano was great. and the takano laugh at the end, man, higurashi is awesome with the crazy/evil laughing.

5/5 ez

Haha! That long post above, I won't get to waste my time reading information about her. Cause I really hate her, and I can watch it the next episode just now. So, no problem in reading spoilers, I just need to watch it. Don't inform more.

As far as Higurashi lives, I just want: Ni-pah!~, Hauu!~, Auauauaua!~, Kana, Kana?!, and the "I wanna take her home" dialogue. Hahaha! Rena for the win! XD

When Kei died I was like .. "reset .. RESET!!" .. imagine that they would survive .. it would be a Keiless world =P

But then ... after Rena-chan died, "this will reset or I'll rate down Higurashi really bad" .. a Keiless world is imaginable, a world without Rena would be no fun at all =X

Rena PWNs in this ep .. omoshi kaeri rena-chann!! kana kana xDDD

But seriously... when Takano was laughing and saying she was Oyashiro-sama in the end... I really expected someone to come up behind her and shoot her in the head... fitting end xD

But it never happened T~T

There's the "massacre." Wow, that was a really awesome episode! Takano holds her own in villany. We had a deus ex machina when Mion, Shion, Rena, and Keiichi suddenly show up, and now they're using their signature weapons against a common, real enemy instead of on each other. It was so sad when they were picked off one by one. And Rika's death...ouch. D: Well, in the next arc, we're going to see Hanyuu take action. Does that mean that she's going to take physical form and be more than a spirit? Looking forward to the next (and final) arc!

Though the subs kinda ruined the mood after Mion wanted to be the decoy and the rest of the gang runs away, Shion said, "Why did she want to become an hero." An hero. I lol'd.

Awesome episode, awesome arc, really pumped about the next arc arc (13 episodes.. its gonna be a big one!) but they seemed to have finally cracked it!

Still a few things need explaining but this shows doing a better job of the plot then I ever thought was possible, I was expecting a Stephen King-esque cop out explanation..

I can't wait to start the new arc! Hanyuu should play a much bigger role now that our people noticed her existence ^^

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuudge.

That was gruesome.;_;

Well...we knew it was gonna happen.
What a nice ending for it though, everyone together like that. And I knew there was something up with Hanyuu's lack of hope that was amiss and just wasn't right for things.

And Furude Rika can forget things sometimes?:| I thought she said earlier that she could remember everything. That was supposed to be what made her special. I mean she knows she's been through this a hundred years. And she can remember every time I have seen.

Though by the looks of it it looks like now they've gained her ability, however possible.
I guess it was only a matter of time after they remembered past events a little bit. I still didn't expect it though. And not so soon for sure.

And so....the hope still rings! Even more resounding that before even! I can't wait to see the rest of this show.

Old avatar and sig retired for now.

and it made me really sad to see her cry because she triied so hard to help rika and everyone else fight fate. And all she could do was stand there and watch everyone die.
That was so sad:(
But now its the end of this arc time to reset and see what happens

Hauuu! This was really an awesome (if very sad) episode. I was reminded again why Rena is such an awesome character; she really shined this time. This also explains some of the confusing things from earlier in the series -- why so many Hinamizawa people were in the school (and why some, including Rena, were missing), and of course, Takano's role in everything.

That explains why the villagers were dressed in casual clothing, at night. That issue bug me alot.
They were rounded up like animals, confined in rooms, and forced to breathe poison. So no volcanic gases, nor aliens involved.
This also explains why was Rena running around in the mountains at night. She probably escaped the roundings by the military, but was hunted down in the end. So Satoko uncovered the conspiracy, and was murdered because of it. Since that was an anime-only arc, I don't think we need to discuss that it about it.
Nice team-work! Too bad they all died, again, in the end :2
Damn that Takano. Even if her reasons for going mad are pityable, I'll still hate that cold-blooded bitch from now on.
Cute theathre-preview. Rika's nipas and mis are as cute as Hanyuu's hauuhauus. :)

Rena was totally awsome this episode. She stood up against the crazy bitch Takano and faced death without a trace of fear. Sakoto is extremely annoying when she have all these mental breakdown and start crying like the world is gonna end and she just want to die.

I still have some questions to ask reguarding the disease. Remember previously, when Keichii and Sakoto were the only survivors? Why didnt they kill them and cover up their deaths together with the other villagers since they too are infected with the disease.

When Keiichi survived, he could still have been assassinated...we just didn't show it...But if he didn't discover anything, they have no reason to kill him. Just like in one world, Rena survived, but she went mad so they didn't bother to kill her....

And the disease is "apparently" not contagious, only Hinamizawans have it....But I could be wrong....

Eventho theres not much violence at these events, it's absolutely the climax of the series. Everything is clear. The mysterious deaths (like Tomitake's, Fake corpse of That bitch) and the disease. I really got pumped up when i saw the others helping Rika and Satoko on the escape event. I hoped that Rena would have sliced the guys with her hatchet. Rika, Fate can be changed. Remeber, to kick the takano bitch's ass, and save Hinamizawa. AuAuAuu~
