    But I guess thats what makes it good, the gap between in the "light" and the "dark", between the normal days and the "HOLY CRAP!! WTF is going on!?" days.

    ...and from what I've watched I can agree that Shion's arc IS the most terrifying.
    Yes, that scene with Rika and the knife freaks me out... And the laughter that is coming from Shion... EEeeek! Scary! >.<;;

    I thought it was going to be a pretty anime - Until I saw the opening sequence.

    I do love how it leaves many questions unanswered in the first season. It makes you use your imagination and come up with theories on your own.

    I do want to know more about the actual "curse" that is happening, and about the actual history of the village. Rena gives a little insight in the last few episodes, but it is still really vague.

    I saw some of the scenes on youtube...[With the horrible english dub ><] and it looked pretty...not exactly creepy but more of a Sci-fi type thing I guess I'd call it. [I bet one of my friends would love it xD] The creepy scenes didn't phase me, but I'm that it would terrify some people. The whole Rika Knife scene was the first one I ever saw, which was well...intresting. Don't watch it before bed is my idea though...yeah.

    Once you start watching the full episodes, it is indeed creepy. The Sci-Fi angle is definitely there, almost in a Twilight Zone sort of way (please tell me you guys aren't too young to remember that show). And it isn't just the violence that's key, it's the character's reactions; when any of the girls (or even Keiichi) have a breakdown, it's almost more frightening than any of the killings. Don't watch Shion's arc before bedtime, the look on her face was enough to give me nightmares.

    Rena's arc was great too, not nearly as bloody as Shion's, but the final scenes on the rooftop were excellent.

    I loved the scenes on the roof!
    I really wasn't expecting something like that. I loved how they brought in the aspect of game club into it. ^_^
