Wait a sec, someone download the pirated troll rom and complained to Ryukishi that it contained Umineko music?
Wow, that's just... plain retarded.

So many people give him too little credit for Higanbana, as far as I'm concerned. But I can't say anything for certain, considering how little people seem to want to talk about it. Maybe it's because it has nothing of considerable value to speculate...

I'm pretty pumped for Higanbana personally. I'm probably gonna cave and read through ATLAS. And I hear someone on Tumblr is planning on making a slughtly cleaned up ATLAS patch, if that's news for anyone here. I can find a source if someone's interested.

I'm really interested to see where Ryuukishi goes with this school setting infested with ghosts....

In the first place, no Umineko BGMs exist anywhere on the Higanbana ROM. Someone would have to deliberately switch the files out and rename them, so I'm just left tilting my head in confusion.

All of the BGMs in Higanbana are wonderful pieces, so I hope you enjoy listening to them. If you like, please email the individual composers and let them know what you think!
There have also been accounts of people noting a distinct lack of tracks by zts (in other words, tracks that go "untz untz untz untz"). Then again, there was quite an overload of zts in Umineko, so why complain?

Does anyone know what happen in "The Spirit Camera," "The Tutelary Spirit's Shrine," "Hameln's Castanets," "One Day for a Certain Girl," and "Utopia" chapters?

Here's what I could gather on "The Spirit Camera."

Spoiler for Summary of what I know:


The only other thing I could gather from the other stories is from "Hameln's Castanets".

I thought the same thing! Ryuukishi has said that Higanbana isn't something to be solved, but I don't doubt that this was done intentionally. Perhaps it's some form of "extra entertainment" for those who have played Umineko (or can think in that style).

Or else it might be a trap for people who have played Umineko. In the same way some people got confused in Umineko because of Higurashi.

Edit: Also, Hikaru is male? I never would have guessed.

It seems that a Higanbana Translation Project is being started here:
http://ronove.blogspot.com/2011/08/h...anslation.html

And it seems to already have two possible translators, which is always good.

The funny thing is that one of my favourite tracks from Higurashi Kai is by zts what is wished. It sounds so joyful and happy! daily passing by is also a fairly happy song. His other track from Higurashi Kai, soak became the sort of thing he'd do for Umineko. Sure, there's stuff like Worldend_dominator which is a fast-paced track, but a lot of the stuff tends to be quite ominous.

Yeah, a quick glance at musicbox red shows what zts is capable of beyond murder rave songs: dead angle, apathy, voiceless, wingless; all beautiful.

But back on topic, it seems that 4% overall is done, 26% being from the first story.

The person who's doing this is being VERY open about it. Hell, s/he's even planning to show the script for all to see, and for some to help edit, once the first story reaches 100% completion.

I'm just glad the first part's backstory is being told by an actual narrator, and not by some psychotic child molester sitting on a toilet seat.

I remember there was a time when Higurashi didn't have composers. 07th Expansion just used copyright-free doujin songs for the first four chapters. It wasn't until Kai that composers actually wanted to make music for them, and thus dai and zts joined the circle. Maybe that's why they replaced all the music with new compositions when it was released as Matsuri on the PS2.

I agree ZTS does do some other great music other than awesome murder rave XD. He also does some REALLY amazing remixes of touhou and KEY from what I have noticed.

I'm glad Dai is still in this one, Dai makes some amazing tracks too.

I would, but there's a few problems.
First issue is the language barrier. I can read some things like Katakana, Hiragana, etc. But I'm far from fluent. I could always try keeping a japanese dictionary with me, but then...

Second problem is my computer refusing to install this thing that'll let my computer run in Japanese Locale so I can't get passed a scene even if I wanted to.

And finally, I don't have the will to go crazy and spend days/weeks/months trying to get Higanbana to work. I'll make this clear: I've pretty much lost faith in Ryukishi. His art hasn't gotten any better (not a huge problem but I still like nice sprites to look at), the story seems very similar to his other works (notably Umineko with Marie's backstory resembling a certain redhead's backstory) and 2 of my favorite characters (from design only) are/were
Spoiler for the Spirit Camera and Hameln's Castanets:
. Even so, I'm STILL hoping he'll pull through and write something well so it's not like I WON'T check this out outta curiousity. At the very least, I hope he'll end stuff well. Unlike Umineko...

inb4uminekotalkthatdoesn'tbelonginthisthread

To add something positive to this:

The music is nice. I like the opening quite a bit and some of the other tracks as well. What was it called, Putsu Putsu? Creepy feeling. Approval.
