Pfft, in the same way Denpa Teki no Kanojo episodes were "movies." Sure, the videos themselves are drawn out, but there's no overarching theme to it all except the main characters' personal interactions. To call it a movie series doesn't quite do it justice (unless you factor in long-game stories like, say, Saw, but even that stretches it in a way that seems too weak). Besides, Higurashi could by design be considered a string of OVA's. We even recommend that newcomers watch the series one arc at a time, not pausing from episode to episode. If Higurashi were to ever have a remake from the ground up (purely hypothetically), I think it would be rather easy to emulate Garden of Sinners' storytelling style and make each arc an OVA (or to fit your definition, a full film).

I specifically say "OVA" to distance the franchise from the live-action movies, since the story ended up being chopped, muddled, limited to 1 question/answer arc, and vastly reworking scenes. The meaning of it all got left on the cutting room floor, and that's just inexcusable, especially when the arc episodes themselves could basically just be strung together.

But I digress. The story and pacing still needs tweaking from the original works, but then again, that's the easy part. You'd still need a competent and dedicated director, proper voice acting talent, an outstanding animation unit, and an inspired sound department. That's a rare breed these days. Even Another couldn't quite get the formula right. That's why (sadly), we may need to just be satisfied with what we have. We don't need DEEN being DEEN and dragging the franchise down for the sake of more views.

It will be a movie, and only Outbreak arc is animated.

Spoiler for Manga note at Fan Meeting event:

The text on the obi, "Higurashi Outbreak becomes movie".

Today, I finished reading Outbreak novel. Here is my summary.
BEWARE the spoiler! ...and my bad English XD

Part 1
Part 2

Just looked carefully that manga note, on those small texts...

「誰も結末を知ることがなかった」のシナリオがついに完結!!

Seems like, the movie's last part won't like the novel's...
It will continue, and more images for Keiichi & Rena's fight? Can't wait!

Sorry, I don't want to read the summary because I'm very afraid of spoilers. Can just somebody tell me if the story is rather humorous oder serious, or both, and what the proportions of humorous and serious (horror, mystery) elements are? That would be great.

According to the summary, completly serious. Humorous segments aren't mentioned in it.

Thanks, I think that would be exactly what most Higurashi fans wish for.

For me, the anime was pretty much over after Kai. But I might give this one a shot.

I'd like to see Tsubasa animated,
as short stories, they should be easier to faithfully adapt.
The Umineko anime was alright for the first few episodes,
but the flaws became way too grating with time to keep me watching all the way through.

Tsubasa would be great as a OVA series with direct-to-DVD/BD release.

I don't see any reason for Tsubasa too get animated, Without chiru, what purpose does it have. Plus all the stories in tsubasa are almost comical, nothing serious , except like two or three. They are silly. Anyway Sorry for Starting Umineko topic in Higu topic , I tend to get offtopic ..:P
