Previously on Episode 3
In the anime previous episode, we saw that 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.
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.
Keiichi, for his own reasons, doubts Rena. He thinks that she knows something about the Oyashiro curse and all these murders. When he tells about this to Rika, she thinks that he is just overthinking. She discards his thoughts and tells him not to worry.
Was Keiichi Right About Rena?
Later that night, Rena brings dinner for Keiichi as his parents were out in Tokyo running some work stuff. This time, Keiichi gets his head out of the gutter and thinks that he made a mistake. However, as it turns out, Keiichi was not wrong about Rena! Rena attacked Keiichi with her knife and stabbed him in the chest. He tried to protect himself from a golf bat but cursed Rena managed to overpower him.
Both of them suffered fatal blows and loss of blood and so they lost consciousness. Keiichi saw his parents and policeman Kuraudo when he opens his eyes. After that, his friends came to visit him and told him that Reka and Satoka are dead. Reka and Satoka were murdered using the same knife Rena used to kill Keiichi.
We will bring more details very soon. Until then, stay tuned and keep reading for all the latest updates!
