I'd shit out if certain person's kicking-ass scene had been animated, but it's been repeatedly said that Anime Kai has it's own story...

Exclamation Great....

Well the fake sub had me fooled but the jokes' on them because I got to see the raw.

-Late thirties/early forties Rena: MEOW! Oh yeah!

The OP and the ED themes are interesting but don't have quite the psycho energy
and urgency of the first seasons - I'm sure they'lll grow on me. The interest was in
the animation and seeing some of the characters behaviors. Interesting.

Ok so ep one was the Demo Script verbatim, so I guess we are moving into Minagoroshi-hen in ep 2 right?

Spoiler for huge spoiler dont read unless you know everything, kamo:

Amazing episode. I hope the series maintains this quality throughout the entire 24 episodes.

The Hauu one is real, although a bit on the low-quality side (mostly video, I didn't notice anything wrong with the translation).

I thought the anon sub was real at first..until I started reading it was fake but still downloaded anyways hehe.

Anyways, episode 1...good, good. Since it was 30 years after..1978. Then add and you get 2008. Lets just say Rena was..mm..14 in 1983 now subtract age until you get to 1978(5 years apart=9 in 1978), then lets say she was born in 1969, subtract 1969 from 2008 and Rena is 39. I had one problem with older Rena, she still sounded like she was 14 lol. Didn't really match older Rena.

Anyways, OP+ED was good. I can wait for the full versions though. I especially like ED, pretty scenes. But still, not as 'powerful' as last season's OP+ED.

I think the art is 'moe' now..Personally, I enjoyed last season's art, but I guess I'll get used to this.

Sigh, now I wish I'd never read the ending spoilers on wiki. Oh well. That was still very interesting info. I'm glad DEEN is going to animate all the stuff they left out in the first season.

Overall, I thought it was a solid episode. I really like the opening, though not as much as the first. I wish there was a preview for the next episode though.
I really like the upped artwork.

Just watched it from Hauu~. Video Quality was so-so, Audio was Ok and translation was well done, in my opinion.

The OP and ED are both beautifully made though, I like why or why not better for the ED the new one is just fine.

Much of this eoisode was a prologue for the series and they also animated some of scenes they did not animate in tsumihoroboshi-hen. Really liked this first episode.

There is a next episode preview but the raw/sub doesn't have it yet for some reason.

A nicely done episode to get things rolling. Animation quality has taken a leap for the better (crappy video quality of the sub aside) and looks great. 30 year older Rena = hot 0_o. I have to wonder how she survived the incident ... though i bet it will be touched upon soon. Nothing really "new" happened, so not much to comment upon.

The new OP is decent, but imo it doesn't stand anywhere near the previous OP, which was made of pure awesomeness. It lacks the "creepiness" aspect to a degree. Looks like focus is going to be on Rika ... can't wait to see how things turn out. This is definitely my most anticipated show of this season... especially since i have managed to remain unspoiled, and would like to keep it that way

marthx : geh, somehow i can't read that file... is there something special to have befor being able to play this?

skyfall : it has been mentionned by Ooishi that she was hospitilized. so we can conclude that Rena was transferred during the same night of her arrest to an hospital. Also, good thing you weren't spoiled so far, you will understand why the tone of the EP changed so much, and frankly, if they were going to keep the same creepiness from season 1, it would be stupid :x



ho well, i finally wrote my summary and thoughts, you can read it here
Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Kai, Episode 1 : Reunion (Summary + Screencaps)


That deserved a 10 for this gorgeous start, seriously ^_^

Opening it with Window's Media Player should work even if clicking on it doesn't open it up.

Seems like サイカイ really is just 再会, as according to the preview, the next episode is the first chapter of Yakusamashi.

so, Hanyuu was indeed saying "Yakusamashi dai ichi" ?
pretty much great that Yakusamashi won't focus only on tsumihoroboshi aftermath, but will be a whole unique chapter then ^^

I like it. A nice recap of the events that lead up to Hinamizawa's fate. Also, it was great to finally see a trap used in the anime! I give it an eight.

It feels so good to have Higurashi back. First episode did a great job at reminding me just why i fell in love with the first season. You wouldn't expect that it was a anime original part of the story.

No new BGM's. Each track used, appears on the first & second soundtrack --- though that could be because its a back-flash episode, and new material starts next week. I'm not bothered either way, i love kenji's work for the first series, making me happy if the first season score carries on being used.

Old Rena was nice, especially her 'classic' freak out part.

Ah i just love the new OP. Straight away i can say it fits as a Higurashi OP so perfectly, song and video --- video is beautiful. As for song, i'm gonna have to listen to 'Naraku no Hana' more before i decide.

ED is lovely, though nothing can beat 'why, or why not' in the mystery perfect ending department. Especially the little piece played at the end for episode previews.
