Twins Shion and Mion have Keiichi seeing double. But as he grows closer to Shion, their flirty friendship has Mion seeing red. When Shion and Keiichi trespass on sacred ground the night of the Cotton Drifting, a string of gruesome murders and disappearances follow. Are the legends of Oyashiro-sama's curse true? Is there a demon in Hinamizawa?
At the Cotton Drifting Festival, Shion convinces Keiichi to sneak into a sacred storehouse with Miyo and Jirou. They ask him to keep it a secret, because if anyone finds out, all four of them will most likely be killed or sacrificed as part of the village's ritual.
The Cotton Drifting festival leads to more deaths as Shion and Keiichi fear for their lives. As more people begin to disappear around him, Keiichi starts putting the pieces together and unravels bizarre secrets that leave many more dead and Keiichi in the hospital
