He goes there with his family of two, wife Yuki and daughter Mashiro.

He is welcomed warmly by the villagers but soon discovers something sinister happening there and finds out that the Goto Family, who owns most of the village are cannibals. How the series moves on makes the crux of this psychological thriller a treat to watch. If you’re curious about the show, you’re at the right place.

Are The Townspeople Really Cannibals?

Well, the Goto Family certainly is, who own most of the village and are also in charge of the whole forestry department making their living from the cypress timber. There are numerous scenarios where the Goto Family pops out, one would be when they kill the bear and after the investigation, they eat the raw bear flesh and also ask Daigo to eat which he tries to but spits out after.

The second would be in the second Episode when Sumire, the previous Chuzai’s daughter accuses the Goto Family of cannibalism when she kicks the vessel in which the Goto Family is supposed to be transporting the body of the deceased but there isn’t anything and Sumire tells Daigo that they’ve eaten that dead body already.

Other than that, when Daigo is being given the whole town tour, they come across the timber factory and there’s an old woman inside who tells that the timber syrup was also used on dead bodies so they do not decompose easily which also means that they probably want to store them long enough to eat them.

However, there’s no evidence as of now that the townspeople are also cannibals but certainly, the Goto Family is.

Who Is That Tall Man Mashiro Meets In The Forest and Also Attacks Daigo?

Mashiro when wanders at night see a man eating a body near a stream and that man comes to face her as well. Mashiro offers him candy and the tall man gives her the finger of the person who he’s been eating which she gives to her father and he sends to the lab for analysis.

That man is also part of the Goto Family and as we’ve established Goto Family members are cannibals, he seems to be an elder who has been keeping the tradition alive.
