No, it airs in a little more than 1 hour.
It airs on thursday at 1:30AM for the Japanese. So for the rest of the world, it is indeed wednesday.

No more question regarding this please (and of course, NO countdown posts either).

Adding this feature or not doesn't change anything. After what happened with kanon and clannad, putting links or information regarding the airing date of a show for each opening post doesn't work most of the time (because it seems people think it is mundane and NEVER read the first post). I think it I should post that in either the intro or the Q&A thread instead...

Not necessarily lol. Well I guess it depends on how they'll choose to animate it anyway, and whether you find such scenes to be "nice."

Because it was very good in just the first few parts, where nothing interesting happened. So you can only imagine how awesome the parts with more drama and action will be!

Well, I have to admit, I may have been overexcited when I first saw the anime. Like I said above, it's bound to get better, so there's no doubt it will compete with Higurashi. (But nothing beats nipah~ or the RikaStab. x3)

I'm just a little anxious to see what happens, is all. After all, since I've only read the first manga, and never read the sound novel at all, I really want to know if the witches and stuff exists... (Hopefully, they do. I've already grown quite fond of the Battler+Beatrice pairing...) </rant>

There are some parts where the english voice acting is superior to the original japanese one, parts where the english cast does a great job portraying the characters emotions through speech. I know you won't agree, but it usually is like this: if you've seen the anime in japanese, then the english dub sounds terrible to you (and in most cases it is terrible too). That's how it usually is. But thankfully Higu is one of the few anime out there with a pretty good english dub, at least in my opinion.
Also I like Shion's laughter more in the english version. xd
True-there are some parts that are better in English (RikaStab scene, K1 and Rena Rooftop Battle), but there are just times when the voice doesn't carry out the emotion as strongly as the face does. It's also quite disappointing that they didn't keep 'nano desu' 'omochikaeri' and 'kana? kana?'. But, I'll agree, there are MUCH worse anime dubs. (cough*naruto*cough) (And I'm only scared of how a School Days dub would turn out...)

Better yet, Hatsuyuki released a 1280x720 version of their sub. So this series is being aired in HD in Japan. That's good news.

Well if you think about it, it would have been quite hard for them to keep those sounds. They are japanese specific, and someone saying omochikaeri while talking in english would have sounded weird. Also Shion laughing using "kekekeke" as someone else said before, would have made it weird. It's an english dub so it was certain these parts won't be in, and it's really hard to replace them with anything similar, english-wise. I think they did a good job with what they could, even without being able to use a lot of japanese-specific sounds or words.

Well, I have to admit I didn't quite like the first episode. The characters would not have to be described, or rather the ones that die anyway.. and there wasn't much more to that, except seeing how 'nice' most of the family are. I like the next episode a lot more, though it's still not like Higurashi was to me, yet..

I thought the 1 episode was good but a little to rushed, they also missed a few parts (I'm not really suprised by that ether). They also didn't make Kanon look so weak as they did in the VN

I really liked this. I haven't played (read?) the VN, this was still interesting.

My favorite part was "Whore!"

One thing: Gejo (下女) means "maid servant". It is something totally different, but well *sigh*.

That's why I like a particular sub group

But anyway, the censored words in a particular station are the following words:
下女 - (gejo) maid servant
仮腹 - (karibara) borrowed womb
端女 - (hashitame) lowly maid servant

For the wife of an Ushiromiya heir, these are very heavy insults. Forget the status, these are heavy insults for a woman.
