ReviewIt was boring at start, but after first Watanagashi festival it started to gain the pace.

The text describing feelings was real juicy, Ryukishi-sensei did a good job making reader experience the story from characters' point of view.

Even parts where they were just friends playing games brought some warmth, probably due to contrast with the chapters that start after first murder. This unique repeatative story-telling for episodes made me strangelly treasure these pre-murder slice-of-life moments same as Rika did, even though I hate slice-of-life genre.

I did not initially catch this while watching the anime, but Mion's story with the doll was very sad. Oh, yeah, Mion best girl, btw. Reading the masterfully foreshadowed answers arc was also rewarding.
