Okay. Now STOP.

The second season will advance the "plot" of the show and give a happy ending, but it removes practically everything from the show that made it appealing in the first place.
Do yourself a favor and stop where you are.


I watched the second season for closure. I didn't watch it just for the gore. The storyline is pretty unique though the ending is pretty corny the stoyline by itself is a good reason to watch season two.

Besides that there are new OVA's being released, and they are labeled as a "Sequel" so technically you should watch season 2 before watching em.

Yeah, do yourself a favour and don't listen to Ishbalan. ^^
S2 may not be as good as S1, but it was still great.

Season 2 answered all the question marks I developed while watching Season 1. It was an indicator to how and why those events happened. I loved the fact that it revealed those answers even though I missed the sudden insanity I experienced in Season 1. They come hand in hand, one for "creeps" and the other for "closure"

I also liked the second season.It answered all my questions from season 1 although it had a lot of corny scenes and at the end it reminded a lot of soap opera with the "all united against one". Still,it was an enjoyable ride and imo,it kept the flow from 1st season...

Watch it for sure but don't expect any gore.

OP to season 3. Looks like they are focusing on drama in this part of the series from what the OP looks like.

For in depth info on OVA releases and their plots you could believe this guy if you don't understand japanese yourself:

It's fake. None of those scenes were original. Just someone's MAD trying to pass as official.

Very Interesting. :mrgreen:

Anyway, if they're coming out with more, I wouldn't mind watching another Higurashi season. :up:

They have finally released the first OVA of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei. What we have is a few steps up from the shitty animation quality of Kai, but not quite as charming as the original. It has its own charm, though, and for the purpose of the episode, it works quite nicely.

It's a pool episode. You know what that means. You get to see all the smokin' hot girls of the show sporting skin-tight swimwear and thats the whole appeal of the episode.

Spoiler :
WRONG.
This OVA is about MANLINESS. Check out the buff men sporting their stuff. They are not afraid to show you who's boss.
Image
Eat it up, ladies. It does not get better than this.
Image

But they don't just look buff. They'll show you what they can do.
Watch as Tomitake stops a stun grenade with his bare chest.
Image
Image
Breath it in. Can you smell the manly? This is the most manly thing since Kamen no Maid Guy.
Dig it.

When I started it, I was expecting shit, but I enjoyed this episode quite a lot. Plus, from the preview, it looks like were going back to serious business. I'm looking forward to it.

Agreed. I can't wait for the Saikoroshi-hen arc to start airing. (not that the first episode was bad)
Not enough Hanyuu in this episode, though.

Spoiler for: potential ova ending
Spoiler :
I heard a rumor that these ova's might have a light (ie happy) ending.
So instead of the usual arc that goes light/comedy/backstory>weird stuff>dark/climax/deaths
it might be light/comedy/backstory>weird stuff/climax>happy ending?

I hope its not true, I like dark endings much more!
I love to wear absurd and totally impractical garments. What's more, I derive great pleasure from spending time with women for no apparent reason.
