And they will take the opportunity to add Satoko's past as well.

I hope they will somehow cover Mion and Shion past (and why not keiichi, whi wasn't really finely done in Tsumihoroboshi...)
I hope they do cover Keiichi's past.

For some strange reason, I really want to see him where he's shooting children with the model gun. It shows his steps from hooligan (depending on what I'm talking about) to his now mature mood...

The preview sucks compared to season 1. I don't want comedy, I want suspense!!!

( I can hardly speak Japanese) But aren't they saying all the things Higurashi stands for? ( the " Hi- Hinamizawa" thing was cute) XD

It really look like Rika and Hanyuu were playing some shiritori with each particle of the title "higurashi no naku koro ni".

that is however only wild guess.

does anyone can also post what is the romaji name of ep3?

Rika does not look her best in gym clothes. I think it's that freakishly large head.

The episode shows the usual everyday fun life once again, but compared to the first season, this one is done much better, as it really drew out the personality of the characters much more this time around (ie. Keiichi's "Magician of Words" ability, and Irie's "Maid in Heaven" mode ).

The focus on Rika's two sides was done excellently as well. It's much more subtle and "natural" now.

I agree, the feel that "there's more to this than what's on the surface" is what Higurashi always felt like for me. Comedy and serious scenes alike are all forshadows to something deeper.

Spoiler:

From the preview, it looks like they're incorporationg certain elements from other chapters into Yakusamashi as well (surprisingly, it seems they're actually putting some of Matsuribayashi-hen's pieces in there too. ie. attack on the Houjou family, the dropped coin purse, etc.).

The sakuga quality is amazing. Why couldn't it be like this the first time around?

It's a word composition play (ie. the "hi" in higurashi stands for "Hinamizawa", the "gu" in higurashi stands for.....).

Title of episode 3 is 無力 (muryoku), or powerless.

This may be spoilerish, but I'll try to explain

They're playing a game. Hanyuu says "Higurashi no~" and then supplies a syllable, which Rika then completes. Pretty much the same as Pythagoras Switch's "Daddy Switch."

lol XD

In the season 1, I loved the previews, specially when It was the "preview pic" (example: when the sonozaki twin's grandmom appears in the end of a episode of Meakashi-hen)

But, the higurashi kai's previews aren't so bad. It's funny to see and listen hanyu ("Higurashi no~" XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD)

better, I'm waiting the episode 2 with subtitles (english or spanish)

There is a subtitle script file up on a certain other torrent indexer, if you get my drift.

While I did like the previews of first season more, those of Kai aren't bad. What remains incomprehensible to me is, why not to include them at the end of the episodes. Are those 45 seconds really too much for the allowed air time ?

Anyway, after having seen episode 2, it can finally be said that Higurashi is back. Not just the old Higurashi, but a remodeled and refined new version. The tag isn't something completely new, but the way it was done this time was completely amazing.
It's surprising but also nice to see Shion siding with Satoko now, after the horror of Meakashi. It's also nice to have more "black Rika" ^^ . And finally a justice is given to graphics and animations.

As for the rest, more comedic than thrilling, much like other parts-1 of the first series' arcs. Just that this episode had a huge load of significant plus if compared to them.

and here we go again...nice bright and sunny start which is sure to turn rotten like a bad apple within the next eps...such is the formula of suspense for this series
rena absolutely owned kenichi with her moe attack and those rumors about kenichi being a perv may not be all lies actually :3

First thing I noticed was that Hau or whatever their name now is translates
'Naraku no Hana' into 'Flower in Hell' rather than 'Flower in the Abyss'. I really prefer the latter, since it being less specific, it evokes more vivid imagery than the former. T_T


But as for the episode itself, it's gold!

This time it seems, Shion actually follows Satoshi's last words and looks out for Satoko. And boy does she, even to the point of feeding her everyday (albeit with what Satoko really despises lol). Although I do feel a bit sad; crazy!Shion from last season was absolute fun watching last time around. XD

And Rena able to get K1 hard just from her pose those short sweet words? She's a master alright... lol

Thing I noticed though is that they don't show an important yet bloody scene in the beginning of a chapter. I liked those, since it gives me something to look for, hehehehe.

Higurashi is back!! After the first 2 eps I already firmly believe that this'll be just as great, if not even better than the first season.
YAY for Higurashi! *jumps around*

*Saving the "10"-votes for later eps.^^*


And I don't care for the previews. I NEVER watch them, whatever the show is. Spoilers are evil, no matter how small they may be.
