Number 12: Keiichi kills both Mion and Rena
Number 11: Shion kills her grandmother Oryou Sonozaki
This was because the Houjou family supported the dam project while the Sonozakis did not. Shion was in love with Satoshi who is a member of the Houjou family. For this crime, she had to have three fingernails removed. Shion believed that this would be enough to atone for what she did. But Satoshi’s disappears afterward and she wants blood. She starts targeting those were believed to be responsible.
Number 10: Keiichi beats Teppei to Death
But Teppei Satoko’s uncle would return to fulfill the role of Satoko’s foster parent. Like before he was very abusive towards her so much so that Satoko developed Stockholm syndrome. No one could help her out because she would never admit to anything being wrong.
Number 9: Shion causes Mion to fall down in the Well
Number 8: Rika is ran over by a truck
So naturally, everything is good but one day Rika and her friends go bilking together and things change.
Number 7: The construction site manager is killed by fellow coworkers
This was the first of many deaths that occurred annually during the cotton drifting festival. Oyashiro’s cure started with this death. The crazy part is that is was no cure for the workers infected with the Hinamizawa Syndrome.
Number 6: Rena slicing Teppei’s head
She lies and says that Rina wants to talk to him. Like an idiot, Teppei follows her to the dump. This is a night so without light you can’t see anything. Rena has a lamp with her. She claimes it ran out of batteries so she needs to get more. Teppei uses his lighter but by then it’s too late and Rena is already behind him. She uses her ax like manchette and cuts his head with one swing.
Number 5: Miyo kills of all Rika’s friends
Number 4: Rena beats Rina to death with a pipe
I like how when you see Rina’s mashed face that the tongue is sticking outward. This death ranks high due to the awesome levels of gore.
Number 3: Rika commits sucide by smashing her head against a Knife
Number 2: Shion stabs Satoko to death
What makes this scene disturbing is that no matter how much Mion begs Shion does not let up and keeps stabbing Satoko. Also, you hear, see, and feel each thrusting of the knife into Satoko’s body. It’s very uncomfortable to watch.
Number 1: Shion finishes off Keiichi
Shion captures Keiichi when they both go to see what sins she has committed. Shion straps Keiichi on a wooden torture device. Keiichi pleads with Shion to spare Shion’s life, his life, leave Mion’s body.
The image of Shion’s face is something that will stay with me for a long time.
