Previously on Episode 3
In the anime’s previous episode, we saw that Keiichi goes and asks the guy his name. The guy says it’s hot outside and they should get inside the car and talk, as there’s ac in there. Keiichi thinks about it for a minute and is reluctant in getting inside the car.
The guys show him his police badge and say that he doesn’t bite. The policeman shows Tomitake’s pictures to Keiichi and asks him about Tomitake. Keiichi tells the police officer that it is Tomitake. The officer replies that he was seen talking with him and his friends last night.
The officer also shows Keiichi a picture of a lady. Keiichi quickly recognizes her and says that he saw her with Tomitake. However, Keiichi further says that he does not know her personally and also does not know her name.
The officer gets curious and asks Keiichi where he saw the duo talking. Keiichi says that he saw them talking at the end of the festival. The officer tells Keiichi about the Oyashiro curse. He says that it started 4 years back when the Hinamizaw dam project’s construction manager got murdered. Six construction workers murdered the manager. Keiichi recalls and says that he has read about the murder earlier.
They Never Find The Main Culprit!
The officer continues that the police managed to catch the 5 murderers, but they never caught the main culprit. The officer also reveals that people go missing after every Hinamizwa festival. Additionally, he marked that Tomitake and the women in the photo went missing after the Hinamizawa festival.
The officer assures Keiichi that he and the police are trying everything to find the duo. However, as of now, they have no idea where they are. The officer then asks Keiichi to help him in the investigation as he does not believe in curses. The duo starts their investigation and will unravel the mystery together.
We will bring more details very soon. Until then, stay tuned and keep reading for all the latest updates!
