After a gas leak killed the residents of Hinamizawa, the village has remained a ghost town for twenty years. Five people come to the empty village for very different reasons but when people start vanishing and cell phones are found mysteriously smashed, the group suspects Mion – who supposedly died along with the rest of the village.

This volume sets up the creepy factor much faster than the previous ones despite being considered a side story. Mion tried to bring some humor but this time the laughs are toned way down. There’s a strange sword Mion is carrying, she’s seeing the ghosts of her friends, the others around her are hearing that mysterious “extra footstep…” Very ominous. 4 out of 5.
