Yakusamashi-hen: Hinamizawa Daisaigai

So ends the Yakusamashi-hen, which played it’s purpose well to include in all the clues and hints that were removed in the initial season. In this episode, the Hinamizawa Disaster is implied as a manmade disaster rather and the mysterious group of men are shown to be the culprit.

That being said, poor Rika dies horribly once again, and I just really… feel so sorry for her, suffering as much as she is. Satoko also put up a brave fight in this episode, but sadly, she doesn’t escape in the end.

That being done now, it’s finally time for Minagoroshi-hen, and Hanyuu should be appearing in the flesh next episode. Minagoroshi is one of the bloodiest arcs, I’ve heard, so…

    I hear that too.

    Sad, in the end Rika couldn’t escape her fate and dies again. Satoko was brave enough to put a good fight, but you can’t change what Oyahsiro-sama has planned for you since old times.

    Only five episodes, it was short for sure. Well, some body know how many arcs will this season has. ANN says the sieres will have 24 episodes… so—

    Yeah it’s incredibly sad for Satoko….and in the end her friends doubted her worry which makes it even more sad.

    Syaoran: 2 more arcs. which are the last 2 unadapted games (Minagoroshi-hen and Matsuribayashi-hen)

    I’ve played a bit of Minagoroshi-hen. It’s much more emotionally positive to begin with… It doesn’t have the comedic moments in the beginning.

    And one amazing part IS WHEN KEICHI GIVES THE **** TO **** (spoiler)
    Hint is: what went wrong in Watanagashi/Meakashi-hen
