ADDITIONAL RULES FOR Higurashi no Naku Koroni
  • Make sure you read the English wikipedia article for Higurashi no Naku Koroni before you ask questions!!!
  • Feel free to share your theories and speculations. In fact, I encourage you to do so as this is what makes this series interesting.
  • I am designating Sushi-Y and Freakman to lead the discussion in the correct path without spoilers as they have played the game in advance. I put confidence in them that they will recognize a member has spilled the beans too far if any other members has begun to play the game.
  • SPOILERS FAR ADVANCED THAN THE CURRENT AIRED ANIME EPISODE WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. THIS INCLUDES THOSE IN SPOILER TAGS!!!. People tend to peek at spoiler tags; especially when they do not know such tag is meant for the episode, only to find it spilling the beans too far advanced in the game storyline.

Well, the finale of Watanagashi-hen seems to be set to be a good one.

*Circular_Logic rubs hands expectantly.

Well by looking at the caps up on 2chan, I guess it is safe to say that Rika's suicide at the beginning of Ep. 5 was a prelude to the Watanagashi-hen's answer chapter, Meakashi-hen. So, quite a long time until we get there until most people learn the tricks and answers for this chapter.

Next week is Tatarigoroshi-hen. I feel depressed already.

Newprimus 2006-05-23 17:46

Erhm, after that little blooper apparently, I think I'll reword my speculations.

Aaarrrg, this is mystifying!!! :eyespin:

Sushi-Y 2006-05-23 20:21

Well, well, this is better. Since this final episode only had to cover the final day of Watanagashi-hen (+ epilogue), it didn't feel nearly as rushed as the others.

There were some nicely done moments, but some not so nicely done moments as well. I'll note them in the highlight:

Spoiler for Episode 8 highlight:

Now then... Tatarigoroshi-hen next week. My favorite chapter featuring my favorite character (Satoko), boy I hope they can pull it off well.

Why do I get a feeling like they're going to cut out the whole baseball competition thing? :uhoh: Hate mails will fly if they do.

I actually prefer the finale of Watanagashi-hen in the manga where....

Why didn't they animate that ?

I've decided to come out of lurker mode to (a) finally discuss the series and (b) say "OH MY GOD THAT IS ONE OF THE FREAKIEST, SCARIEST THINGS THAT I HAVE SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!"

Thank you. I'll post more when I actually see the episode... but I think I'll probably love it.

I clicked the show button and almost fell out of my chair.

Thanks a lot, man.

I want to ask: is wind (fansubbers) okay enough for you? I'm waiting for Ayu, but they're too slow. Their quality is great - I can even say through the roof.

That is something you have to judge for yourself. I personally think they are pretty good and subbing sensibly in accordance to the nuance of the show. Not bad for a new group.
