Keiichi Maebara moves into the small village of Hinamizawa near the Gifu prefecture. He is warmly welcomed by the locals and joins an after-school game club where he bonds with his classmates: Rena, Mion, Satoko, and Rika. However, once he finds a crumpled old newspaper detailing a bizarre murder case, he becomes curious about the history of the village.

Title
(question arcs)
i have really complicated feelings on this so far. i think it definitely deserves the hype it gets, the characters are amazingly written and the mystery is really gripping but (say the line bart) it was really bogged down by the pacing. looking back on it so far i cant really imagine the story being trimmed that much without it losing a lot of its impact but its such a fucking slog in the moment that it makes me really hesitant to recommend it to anyone. still even though ive had massive parts of the answer arcs spoiled already im excited to see what they have in store

    onikakushi slaps even harder the second time around after knowing everything about where it's going and it changes it's genre from horror to tragedy. the ways the characters continue to dehumanize each other ('that was only a person that looked like rena') until it ends like it does... really hammered home the games themes from the start. ironically feels more of a piece thematically with Meakashi in this than it's actual corresponding answer arc. maybe that's part of why Kai starts off with it's most outwardly tragic story.

    Tatarigoroshi revitalized my love for fiction but destroyed my love for humanity. The most thrilling, tragic and terrifying thing I read this year.

    I liked SoL parts much more, horror parts feels like they came from nowhere and explanation of that mess will be in over 20 hours of reading

    There's an incredible story hidden here somewhere.
