Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Episode 20 Discussion & Gallery
Higurashi episode 20 delivered more than what I was expecting. Not only did the Anime explained why Satoko ended up falling into a mental spiral, but it also gave an overview of how the other main characters developed throughout the years. Honestly, this was a great continuation of the previous episode, and much of what didn’t make sense is now easier to digest.
I still feel that sending Rika to an infinite loop of deaths a bit extreme. However, Higurashi seemed to hint that Satoko might have done this without realizing it. At the end of the episode, she meets the actual deity, and I can only imagine that the powerful Goddess was able to trick Satoko into chaining Rika to her past fate once again. It’s understandable why Satoko is begging to come back to her village, though. She isn’t a good fit for her new school. But, more than that, Rika does act differently than before. I guess the girl does like to be the center of attention and acting like nobility. However, forgetting her childhood best friend is a bit much. It’s true that she protects Satoko and askes her if she needs help. Still, she knows Satoko very well, and she should know that her approach isn’t the most effective one. Of course, it also doesn’t help that the school’s headmaster throws Satoko into a dark jail cell because of a prank. Anyone would start losing their mind after that.
I really like that the group came back to Hinamizawa to play games as they did before. Even though the characters still have the same personalities, it’s easy to see that they’re older and a bit more mature. Rika is the one who seems to have the biggest transformation to her past personality when she gets back to her hometown, but that’s something that happens naturally when you meet friends you haven’t seen for years.
