Fatal Frame II: Deep Crimson Butterfly

A journal Mio Amakura finds in Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly


The journal of a folk scholar. It describes the state of the village as the ceremony takes approaches


The earthquake has been getting increasingly frequent over the last few days, and I've also seen more and more of the crimson butterflies fluttering around. Though they are beautiful, they make me uneasy. They look just like human souls, mournfully making their way though the skies, and the villagers always start praying when they see them.

The atmosphere in the village is very tense, as though something is about to happen.

A community that fears the wrath of the earth...

Could this Crimson Sacrifice Festival be some kind of attempt at appeasing it?

Such festivals used to be common all over Japan/ generally using live sacrifices to appease the wrath of the gods.

Could that be how the twin maidens that are worshiped in the village are linked to the festival?

If the village were preparing for an ancient appeasement festival, then it would certainly explain why everything is so quiet around here.
