Keiichi is a pedo.


Rena lays the smackdown on Keiichi.

Oh. My. God. Keiichi…. my god… I didn’t know…

Ok, now, seriously, I haven’t blogged Higurashi in a while, but man.. 24 and 25 were fucking awesome.

Tsumiboroshi-hen is the Rena version of Onikakushi-hen and tons of info were revealed to us concerning the curse.

First off…. it’s being explained that a unique form of parasites that only live in Hinamizawa were the cause of the curse, causing people to go berserk and attack people. Oyashiro-sama was supposedly the doctor that contained it inside the village, forbidding the inhabitants to leave and outsiders to enter. Then later on, Rena reveals that the parasites are aliens trying to invade Earth, and that the Sonozaki clan are the ones who’ll be trying to spread them all over the world.

Further on, the Sonozaki family discredits the theory by discrediting Takano-san as an occultist lover and made tons of theories concerning the curse. Plus, it seems that the “reset” at every arc happened in the same timelines,with Rika-chan as supposedly the only person who knows of all the events that have happened, with Keiichi realizing his sins as well. Heavy, heavy, awesome stuff. I really hope that Higurashi won’t jump the shark for the last episode.

Thank god for ayyo’s effort to translate Minagoroshi-hen. I’m dying to know of the truth now.

    I don’t get it. Why everyone thinks that parasites are the cause? It’s so obvious that this ISN’T the cause, to me… And that’s because of one of the last scenes in episode 25, where Oishii & Co. read Takano’s notes.. She has 50 more of these ‘theories’, why the ‘parasite theory’ is the right one?

    Well, the circumstances Takano’s theory was discredited was very suspicious since it was done by the Sonozaki family. It could’ve been all faked by them or true, since we don’t have any concrete proof yet.

    We really can’t dismiss the theory yet, plus added in with the current time loop angle being introduced, it’s kinda hard to tell.

    I just started watching the Anime. The “reset”, as people call it, confuses the hell out of me. I thought this was like some coward kid who gets brutally murdered by some insane girls. Now…aliens…that makes more sense …maybe i’ll keep watching…

    the very last few comments and the circumstances around them gave me a very . . . odd idea; the time loop isn’t just a phenomena. It is a battle of wills between Rika and Oishi with Oishi being the one causing the “reset” and Rika trying to get out. The rest of the story is just a side result of their different moves and countermoves. Yes I know that right now you’re all thinking WTF but think about it. 1. Rika’s comments seem to be directed at Oishi 2. Oishi acts very suspiciously and gives out information that he really shouldn’t 3. We have seen he can be cruel and manipulative. 4. Oishi actively tries to sow discord, paranoia, and distrust while Rika says that the very opposite is the KEY TO ENDING THE CYCLE 5. In he this arc he followed the club at the festival BEFORE he had a reason to.

    one other reason is that in the arc with the young investigator, Oishi and Rika are really the only two canidates for causing a “reset” and we know Rika wants the “resets” to stop
