Just finished season 1 not too long ago. I heard season 2 explains a lot more, but it's apparently shit. Should I proceed?

I'm in the dead middle of watching the second season and I'm enjoying it. =\
It is certainly different, though.

Btw, what was that mess at the end of your post supposed to be? (Looks like some failed ASCII picture due to forum formatting or something.)
... yea ...

I don't know why people called season 2 shit; they obviously set wrong expectations of the series as it's FAR more than "killer cute girls". Seriously watch season 2 as it does a damn good job explaining the essence of the main characters' motives and resolves as well as the real reason why all of the stuff happened in season 1.

It did screw up D: but I think only 2 lines of it are out of place.

Mmm yeah I was really wanting to watch it simply because I wanted to get a more in-depth explanation than what was offered in the first season. Also, I heard news for a third season, so I might want to watch second now to appreciate it.

Not using Monospaced fonts or forced line break limitations are the two most common things that can cause problems.

Looks like that for me too, and pretty good once you focus you realize what it is.

So I just finished watching both seasons of this show (and loved it), and I have to wonder - is there any chance of some company ever picking the dub back up and releasing the rest of the R1 DVDs, since Geneon went and dropped everything they had? (That still boggles my mind...)
Or should I just not hold my breath and resort to finding a way to import R2s?
... yea ...

My cousin hangs out some of the Funimation voice actors sometimes, and he said that Funimation is definitely looking into Higurashi as a recovery anime.

Oooo, you got unofficial insider info! :P

Since Anime Expo is coming this week, hopefully we'll see something concrete. For the most part, I believe Bang Zoom's dub has already been done for the first season, and it's now more of the matter of who's going to distribute it.

Ok, first of all, Ishbalan, that's just plain awesome of your cousin. XD

And secondly, I'm quite glad to hear that someone is obviously going to pick up (or already has picked up) this series. At least now I know I can be patient and wait for this to hit American streets, lol.

Thanks much for the info. :D
... yea ...

Season 2 is shit because it's half filler to draw the story out to a full season. Seriously, if 2nd went at the same pacing the first season did it would have only been about 10 eps or so. Which kinda makes sense, the first season followed the games fairly closely while the second added in original shit. They're done with the games now so the third season will probably be all original. Which I imagine means A) it'll be at best vaguely related to the first two seasons and B) it will suck.

Although I suppose the second season is worth it just to find out who the real villain is. And a character choosing to stay conscious while being disemboweled was pretty creepy.
