Ryuunosuke Arakawa
Information
Age  ?
First Appearance Yoigoshi-hen
Portrayed By Tomoaki Maeno

Arakawa Ryūnosuke (荒川 龍ノ介) is a "free writer" that works for an occult magazine. Arakawa was perfectly happy to come to the village on assignment in spite of all the rumors. He is very well informed on the occult theories surrounding the village about aliens and parasites, but not as well informed on the traditional legends of the demons.

Arakawa tends to panic and overreact to things. He is highly suspicious of the other members of the group, especially "Sonozaki Mion" since, according to his information, she died in the explosion at the school. In the end, though, she is not only his best chance at finding material for his article but also his best chance at surviving. Not particularly brave, he will still usually come through in a pinch. He also has the most black and white moral viewpoint of the Yoigoshi-hen group, and is quick to judge and point fingers.

First Appearance Yoigoshi-hen

Chiaki (千秋) took part in a carbon monoxide suicide party in the ghost village of Hinamizawa in late June of 2006. Her reasons for ending her life are unknown, but it is hinted to involve the death of her husband. The husband left Chiaki with huge amount of money that he had earned with the success of his business, and she intended to "bring it to him" once she was dead. Otobe Akira, who also took part in the suicide, intended to die due to his life of debt. However, he decided to keep his life, and steal Chiaki's cash card once everyone else was done passing around sleeping pills.

Otobe later regretted his actions, and returned the money to her body. Then Chiaki's voice spoke to him from beyond the "Land of the Dead", and told him that she thinks he's okay to take her money, if it gives him the will to live again. Otobe refused, and accepted the hardships of his life, instead of cheating his way through it. Chiaki told him that she and the rest of the suicide party would have taken the same path if they had over come their struggles with everything they had, and she wished him good luck.

Construction ManagerEdit

Construction Manager
018
Information
Nickname
  • The old man (By Ōishi Kuraudo)
  • Manager/Director
  • Age 50+
    First Appearance Himatsubushi-hen
    Portrayed By Satoshi Tsuruoka

    The construction manager (his real name is unknown) met Ōishi sometime after World War II, after he scolded him for chasing after a man smuggling illegal rice, at a time when food scarce. Ōishi, whose real father died in a bombing in Nagoya, appreciated the lecture, and thought the man as a second father. They became best friends from then on, and often spent their time drinking and playing mahjong. In the early 1970's, he took up the job of being manager of the Hinamizawa Dam Project. During the dam conflict, he was attacked by anti-dam protesters on a daily basis. He especially hated Sonozaki Mion, whom he often had run-ins with. After the dam project was called off, he and his employees stayed to work (probably because they didn't know the Construction Minister called off the project or to clean up after the construction). On the night of the Watanagashi Festival 1979, he fell victim to the Hinamizawa Syndrome after six construction workers provoked him by cussing and drinking alcohol. Enraged, he picked up a shovel and tried to smash their heads. After the workers realized that the manager wasn't his usual self, they each grabbed a weapon, and killed the old man. To avoid getting caught, the leader of the group made each worker to cut the manager into six pieces: The head, torso, right arm, left arm, right leg, and left leg. Eventually, five of the murders turned themselves in, but the leader and the manager's right arm was never found. His death started Ōishi's suspicion that the village and the Sonozaki Family are somehow connected to his death, and motivated him to avenge the old man by investigating the mysterious deaths.

    Eriko was one of Miyo Takano's/Miyoko Tanashi's roommates at the Orphanage and was the closest thing she had to a friend there. It's not known how she came to the institute, though it can be assumed that she lost her parents like the others due to the war or some other incident. At some point, she arranged with Miyoko and two others to escape from the orphanage and get to a much better one called the House of Love. They tried to escape and despite Miyoko getting the furthest, all of them were caught and punished for their attempt. Eriko was sent to the chicken coop where she was violently pecked to death by the chickens and had her eyes gouged out, much to Miyoko's horror. Eriko's fate is not revealed in the anime, as it is assumed that she escaped.

    Furude Rika's ParentsEdit

    Furude Rika's Parents
    Furudefam
    Information
    Age  ?
    First Appearance Himatsubushi-hen
    Portrayed By Yūsei Oda (Mr. Furude), Sayaka Ōhara (Mrs. Furude)


    Mr. and Mrs. Furude were the parents of Furude Rika and the victims of the third year in the series of mysterious deaths, presumably dying of an unknown illness and suicide respectively. Her father was the head of the Furude family and was in charge of the Saiguden. He forbids his young daughter from entering the Saiguden. In the manga he spanks Rika after he mistakenly thought that she snuck into the Saiguden and broke a section of Oyashiro-sama's statue, though it was really Satoko.

    In the manga version of Saikoroshi-hen, Rika who has become accustomed with her parents having died in her more recent time-lines, openly enters the Saiguden and is caught by her father. In the evening, she remarks to herself, "It still hurts . . . how long has it been since I last got a spanking?" and in the next morning she endures a lecture from her mother: "My mother's lectures never end! I always hated that about her!" Mrs. Furude is revealed to have had a rough relationship with her daughter and showed dislike to Rika's indifferent reactions to the events around her. This attitude on Rika's behalf is most likely due to the fact that she has endured those parts of her life hundreds of times over. The manga version of Saikoroshi-hen again expands on the source of this distance. As one example Rika's mother proves a not very good cook, and when she tries to teach Rika, Rika shows better skill having learned from living with Satoko in previous time-lines. Rika also admits that having given up on saving her parents she grew distant from them.

    During the dam war, Mr. Furude took a neutral position on the matter and refused to take either side, which earned some animosity from some of the villagers. Though Shion thought that the priest acted mature for not taking any sides, Mion felt that he was responsible for causing even more unrest in Hinamizawa and that he should have gone along with the protesters in order to keep the village united.

    To help save Satoko, Rika volunteered herself as a test subject for Irie and Takano. Takano wanted to use Rika to further the research of the Hinamizawa syndrome, because the "Queen Carrier" status passed down through the females of the family, such as Mrs. Furude, though exact the exact details remain unclear. In both the anime and manga, Rika's mother becomes progressively opposed to Rika's involvement, and when Rika develops a high fever she demands the experiments end. Her father compromises by giving Takano and Irie three more months. Takano responds by having the Yamainu poison Mr. Furude so it would look like he died of heart failure. The anime version does not explain the full fate of Mrs. Furude. The Yamainu leave fake evidence to imply she drowned herself in the Onigafuchi Swamp and her body is never found. The manga explains that Takano performed a dissection on her alive and without any sedation or pain killers.

    Kyle Hebert (English)
    Sugawara Daikichi (Live Action)

    Mrs. Ryūgū: Niki Suga
    Karen Strassman (English)
    Ryoko Takizawa (Live Action)

    Rena's biological mother started her career as a designer at a small clothing manufactory in Okinomiya, where she met Mr. Ryūgū. They married and lived in a small apartment in Okinomiya until Mrs. Ryūgū became pregnant; they then moved into Rena's paternal grandmother's house up until Rena started elementary school.

    Around this time the manufacturer Mr. and Mrs. Ryūgū worked for began to have financial difficulties, so she began to consider going independent with a few other designers. The situation became complicated, but she received an offer to work at a design office in Ibaraki and took it. The company promised Mrs. Ryūgū a responsible project, since the firm had high expectations with her talent. When the family moved, Mr. Ryūgū had to give up his job and became a homemaker. The project became a large success, and Mrs. Ryūgū started coming home late every night or not at all.

    Mr. Ryūgū was not doing well, and kept changing jobs. His role as a homemaker fell short due to his inability to cook amongst other things, so Rena began to take up the chores for him.

    Rena's mother began to take Rena out places without telling her father, including barbecue parties with her coworkers. Around this time Rena's mother had developed an affair with a fellow designer known as Mr. Akihito. She had been drafted by a headhunter to work at a bigger company and was promoted to a higher position, and by this time was earning well into six figures. After taking Rena to a restaurant and eating parfaits with her (Rena's childhood dream), she wanted Rena to leave her father and come live with her and Mr. Akihito. Rena loudly voiced her disapproval, saying that she could continue her relationship with Mr. Akihito but was not allowed to divorce her father. This is when Rena's mother revealed that she was pregnant.

    Rena's mother sent a lawyer to the household in Ibaraki many times but refused to meet him in any form, including over the phone. Mr. Ryūgū became depressed, as did Rena. One day, Rena met with her mother again, but did not speak to her; Mr. Ryūgū had given her a letter to give to her mother, but her mother did not read it when Rena asked her to. That meeting was the last time Rena's mother met with Rena.

    In Tsumihoroboshi-hen, Mr. Ryūgū begins a relationship with Mamiya Rina. He met her at a gentleman's club in Okinomiya named Blue Mermaid, of which Rina is the private manager. He is not aware of her relationship with Hōjō Teppei and falls into their badger game trap. It is implied that the two had slept together, as Rina lies about being pregnant to lead him into the prospect of marriage. Before she can go into the final stage of the plan and have Teppei intrude while they are in bed together, Rena murders Rina. However, Teppei still attacks Mr. Ryūgū late after dark, and subsequently is also murdered.

    In Minagoroshi-hen, a similar scenario was set to occur, but Rena talked to her father about the issue instead of taking matters into her own hands. Mr. Ryūgū also gets a new job in this arc.

Due to her marriage to an outsider, Akane was dismissed as Oryō's heir in favor of her oldest daughter, Mion. The manga contains more detail in that Akane defeated her mother, Oryō, in a kendō match.

    Sonozaki SōheiEdit

    Sonozaki Sōhei was the leader of the Sonozaki family during World War II and the husband of Sonozaki Oryō. He made a lot of money on the black market by selling canned food which he probably had stolen from a food storage in China where he had been working. He gave this money to his wife Oryō, who rebuilt Hinamizawa, which had been falling apart near the end of the war. But in the late 1950s a bad rumor came up. Sōhei had allegedly belonged to a scientific military unit. By doing research on how to supply the starving Japanese army with food, they reportedly tried to use human bodies for nutritional purposes. Moreover, the rumor blamed Sōhei to have distributed canned human flesh and having become rich by such means. However, he denied this allegation until the day he died.

    The Sonozaki family are not only very influential in Hinamizawa, but also in the neighboring town, Okinomiya. They own many businesses, including Angel Mort, toy stores, home retail, etc. Many of them are occupied by Mion and Shion's uncles. Only two of these uncles have been introduce, and apparently both their names are Yoshirō.

    This uncle kindly gave Shion a job at Angel Mort when she was secretly hiding from her grandma in Okinomiya. He later informs her about the third year of the curse occuring awhile she was away at boarding school. He was also going to be punished by the Sonozaki's for helping her hide from Oryō, but Shion was punished in his place.

    The Sonozaki family are not only very influential in Hinamizawa, but also in the neighboring town, Okinomiya. They own many businesses, including Angel Mort, toy stores, home retail, etc. Many of them are occupied by Mion and Shion's uncles. Only two of these uncles have been introduce, and apparently both their names are Yoshirō.

    This uncle is owner of the toy store where the club plays in a game tournament in Watanagashi-hen and Minagoroshi-hen. In most worlds, he rewards the club members (except Mion) with prizes, and even gives Keiichi a really cute doll that the rest of the club admires. In the Watanagashi-hen/Meakashi-hen worlds, he gives the doll to Rena instead of Mion, to avoid ruining his "bro-like" relationship he has with her. However, when Mion pours out her hurt feelings about Keiichi to Shion, she becomes jealous that her sister's crush is alive and well, therefore causing the tragedies in these arcs.

    In Hajisarashi-hen, he gives Keiichi a pair of cursed swimming briefs and mistakenly tells him to write his own name where you're supposed to write down your crush's name, which will cause Keiichi to fall in love with himself if he keeps wearing them.
