I can't wait to hear the new songs too... XD I think the designs look nice so far.

Kira official website is up now, but nothing much yet.

Looking for information about those arcs... Only Yumeutsutsushi-hen is found.
Seems like the story is related with ED performing character(s). So ep.4 will be a story about Hanyuu.
Moe and good, those are what I found.

About me... CAN'T WAIT ep.3 \( ' 3' )/

Art-wise seems like Kai > Kira = Rei > Season 1, but time will tell. It's only a promo image and some character sketches. Did their heads get even bigger, or is that just me?

And yeah, hoping the fan service will only be Ep. 1 (Kinda like Rei?). Sorta makes me wonder what there's left to do with a plot, though. Hanyuu's past, tying up romantic loose ends (unlikely)...?

I'm so glad that they're making a new Higurashi OVA series. When I first found out about this I was so happy, I wonder if they're going back to Higurashi because the Umineko anime was such a flop (if this is even being done by DEEN, I just assumed it was)...

Either way I'm just happy to see my favorite anime and some of my favorite characters come back. :3

Interesting. Another Higurashi series another set of character designs. With nothing notable in terms of past anime character designs, Tomoyuki Abe seems to have based his designs closely to Kazuya Kuroda's Rei work but there's some of Kyuuta Sakai's influence mixed in, which is a good thing. The director this round is Hideki Tachibana, who is a bit of an uncertain quantity having directed H2O and Dragon Crisis as well as a few eps of the To Aru series and their storyboards. I'll assume that Kenji Kawai will return for the music once more.

Overall in terms of chara design I'd say Kai > Kira > Rei > season 1. But enough analysis, bring on Higurashi Kira!

Tomoyuki Abe? Name sounds familiar... I do like it better than Rei. But Kai is the best of them all, in my opinion.

He made some designs the Higurashi Rei release as well.

^ Ahhh, he drew the fifth Rei cover. No wonder I thought it looked different but so much better than the other four. His other Rei illustrations were the good ones too.

I agree, Kai is the best. They should have just asked Kyuuta Sakai to do them again (though it keeps with the spirit of different designs for each installment of the franchise...). Maybe DEEN gave Tomoyuki a promotion and decided to test him lol.

Of all the original arcs from the PC games, I think the only one they have not done yet is Batsukoishi-hen.

I wonder if Ryukishi07 will be behind the script this time, or they are just using his name as "original author" again.

I'd like to see Satoshi awake and well again.
Aren't the last three chapters (aside from Batsukoishi-hen) completely original stories? Or are they animating one of the manga or Matsuri arcs? Eh...

No, all of them are fan-made story.
The last episode is from a Kataribanashi-hen novel (volume 2), I think.

So it's going to be a fan service arc? I would of preferred another horror mystery type one like the first season, but oh well. I'm still happy we're getting any new Higurashi at all.

I have a question about Batsukoishi-hen. Wasn't it already animated? If I'm not mistaken, it's the pool episode. You know, the one about magical swim trunks?

They both feature the "Soul Brothers" (oh dear XD) but they're different arcs. :3 The one from Rei is called Hajisarashi-hen.

That one is Hajisarashi-hen, adapted from Matsuri light novel, not from original Rei.

Personally I want to see they put back the fun events that they cut out from the question arcs. For example, dessert fes at angel mort.

I think all the ovas are fanservice, If they had problems adapting the ambient of Original higurashi arcs in the main anime 3 episdes the shorter one I don't thing they would try to create a whole serious story in an sole episde.

I know that female characters are more popular and marketable (For whatever reason... I like male and female characters the same), but it's kind of bullshitty that Keiichi is completely absent from every Kira-related image (As well as the website banner) thus far. Remember that guy, anime producers? He only narrated half of the Visual Novels.

The people-that-aren't-cute-girls bias aside, I really am excited for this. So happy some more Higurashi's coming out.

Eh, eh, now that I think about it, it's true that a serious story arc is unlikely, which disappoints me. (I love the humor in Higurashi, but my sole reason for getting into it was the tragedies the characters suffered.) Even if they did attempt to create a serious mood in a single episode, it'd only fail horribly. So, I guess I'll have to just look forward to what we're getting. Club activities~

Don't get me wrong, I'm not all that disappointed by it. Club activities means more Mion screentime.
