The killer lolis are back, Yaaay! :D

Still haven't checked the promo, and I am pretty much in the dark about everything else; But boy, have I been wishing for this show to start. :)

johnishida 2007-07-05 06:02

I just checked the promo which, by the way, it would fit a Hollywood Movie Promo perfectly!

The promo also stated which chapter it will follow. Can't wait!

Ultima_Rasengan05 2007-07-05 07:05

wow I almost forgot that this week is the premiere of the second season!!
I'm still watching the first season, but I guess I'll skip on to this one...or maybe I should just catch up with the first season...hhmmm
But I'll be looking forward to watching this first episode though.:D

I strongly suggest you finish the first season first, otherwise it could get a little confusing later on. :)

It's finally going to start tomorrow, looking very much forward to it. One thing I definitely hope they can improve on is the music department, as the horror music simply doesn't fit in the final two chapters (just as it didn't fit in the climax scene in the last episode of first series). ;)

i agree with garet on this matter : you should definitely finish season 1 first.
not only it will be confusing, but it will also ruin your "experience", and somes "answers" in season 2 won't always affect you. (since you probably won't have every questions in mind)

geh... gotta stalk the usual "raw haven" :heh:

OK, thanks for the advice then guys...I guess I won't be checking out episode 1 of season 2 of Higurashi anytime soon then...thanks though for the advice.:)

Bring on the blood please i dont have a creepy violent death pshychological thriller series im watching at the moment and Higurashi could fill that void quite well.

Many (non-japanese) people seems to have the wrong idea that Higurashi no Naku koro ni is all about blood and pyscho murder horror. It's true that they're some of the elements which made Higurashi stand out, but they are not really the main focus of the series.

So for those who are watching this simply for the body-torning and blood-gashing scenes, you might be a little disappointed in the second series. :heh:

(Though I wouldn't know about the first arc, since it's an anime-original chapter. Who knows, you might be able to see Rena dicing and slicing bodies again. :D)

I agree with you on that (for me, it's all about the mystery), but I'm interested to hear what you believe is the main focus or appeal of Higurashi? (Just curious!)

Xel 2007-07-05 12:46

Sweet.

I've been very careful to avoid any spoilers, haven't even watched the trailer. I can't believe it's finally here!

In the first episode, I'm really looking foward to the improved animation quality and seeing the new opening and ending.

Like you said, I believe the main focus of it is all about mysteries as well, but it stands out by posing questions which are different from other conventional mystery ones (e.g. who's the murderer, how he/she did it etc) for you to solve. Won't go into them too much since they're all spoilers, but I found them very unique. Finding answers to these questions are probably what most viewers find themselves do while watching the series.

Ice Climbers 2007-07-05 13:26

YES IT'S FINALLY OUT, I CANT WAIT TO HEAR THE OP (liked it in the trailer) :heh:

Expecting another great season ;)
