Strobe lighting and the scent of musty old books rises from within the fog...
Eisenalex : (06 January 2018 - 11:26 AM) I just saw The Long Dream and Mold getting teased in the opening of Junji Ito Collection. That makes me so happy!

midwinter : (06 January 2018 - 11:45 AM) I'm waiting for it to be available to free users, but i'm excited to watch it!
Eisenalex : (06 January 2018 - 11:58 AM) Do you want a guest pass? I get them monthly and they keep expiring because nobody wants them.
midwinter : (06 January 2018 - 12:04 PM) Ooh, would you mind? That would be very kind of you
midwinter : (06 January 2018 - 12:04 PM) I had the same problem when I had a paid account
Eisenalex : (06 January 2018 - 12:07 PM) Sent. I always have at least one Anime per season that I want to watch the day it comes out in 1080p, so the paid account is still a good investment, lol.
midwinter : (06 January 2018 - 03:01 PM) that was gooood, though i hope they do some of the longer straightforward horror
midwinter : (06 January 2018 - 03:02 PM) i enjoy the humour, but i want to be creeped out as well
Eisenalex : (07 January 2018 - 12:42 PM) They're going to. Souichi has always been pretty goofy and I think it was a good way to start, because that's out of the way now and the contrast between Souichi's Selfish Curse and Hell O' Dollies kicked it off well.
Eisenalex : (07 January 2018 - 12:42 PM) The opening already teased stories like The Long Dream, so we're going to have quite some heavy stuff to look forward to.
Eisenalex : (07 January 2018 - 12:51 PM) The chapters they announced at the end should be Groaning Pipes and Blood-Sickness Of The Sand-Village if I'm not mistaken.
AnimalLover4... : (07 January 2018 - 06:34 PM) The Sand Village.  What is this Naruto?
Eisenalex : (07 January 2018 - 06:34 PM) I was mistaken. Seems like it won't be blood-sickness, but the intersection's pretty boy instead.
Eisenalex : (07 January 2018 - 06:37 PM) lol. I wish naruto was like that, then I'd actually watch/read it.
Hex : (17 January 2018 - 01:00 PM) Things have been quiet lately.  How is everybody?
suprimeking : (17 January 2018 - 03:38 PM) i'm so so
suprimeking : (17 January 2018 - 03:39 PM) anyone around
Hex : (17 January 2018 - 04:37 PM) I am, a bit
Hex : (17 January 2018 - 04:56 PM) Snow.   :icon_fallenwoman:

Mio's a Remaining now, right? Remainings usually have white hair after the ritual. How did Mio retained her hair color?

I've got a theory!  I think it's been around since 2 came out, but here's my thoughts: only unsuccessful Remainings have their hair turn white.  We see it in Itsuki, Kureha, possibly Ryokan (if his failed, it might be why he's so insistent with his daughters' ceremony?), and the Osaka twins in 3.  The Zero Comic Anthology shows us the Osakas' ritual was successful, but it hasn't explicitly been made canon, and wasn't written by the developers themselves.  

 

So, why would it turn white?  Well, during the ritual, the twins merge together as one person.  You could theoretically say a part of Mayu is still alive in Mio after her death, for example.  But if the twins don't merge, one half of that whole actually dies, represented in the living half receiving white hair, symbolising how a part of them has died.

 

Or it's totally random and related to the trauma.

This post makes me chuckle because I recall there being a "Mio's Hair" topic in one of the older forums.

 

I like Hex's theory!  I never thought of it that way but that would be amazing if that was the case.

Yes, I was also the original poster of that in the previous forum. It was actually a sticky one, with lots of debates. I can't find it here so I decided to post it again. B)

 

I agree with Hex's latter theory. I think it is only in-game trauma induced.
