It just didn't work for me and even though I found it more or less amusing most of the time, I think they used way to much chibi mode and funny faces. They're only funny if used wisely and sparingly and that was not the case in epsiode 1.

However, the dark mystery parts really worked for me. Especially the end of episode 1 when the....the protagonist (forgot the name, sorry -_- finds the newspaper was brilliant! If only they had had more of that and less of the bad comedy...
The comedy is only there to provide a clear contrast between the "normal daily life" and "abnormal life" when the serious stuff begins (as of episode 2, it's starting). Even in the original sound novel, many gamers "gave up" at this comedy part too because they found it pointless and tedius to wade through.

But if you can be patient, Higurashi is a very rewarding story... Well, it all depends on how well the anime can pull it off though.

@ Xris

Why the hell is that there
Anyway...

Nice ep... characters are a little simple but for some reason they seem to look better in the rest of the episodes...

I'm not really into horror movies and the other stuff... but this anime is prety Good... which is also my rating for the first episode... however it's taking the op into consideration... meaning the op made it look better

The rest of the episodes are really interesting... I think I'll follow the series just because it looks good and makes other types of series (Comedy, Action...) look better... maybe because I was getting a little bored seeing comedy, action, comedy, action...

Spoiler for the boring explanation:

Like you, I'm not really into horror movies and such. If the story / artwork continued as it was for the first 30 seconds of this episode then it would be unlikely I would have watched anymore. It was the fact there's a strangle blend of comedy along with the "little" hints that the situation isn't as normal as it appears that has enticed me to continue.

I know this is not the right place to ask this, but I'm terrified of posting in any of the game/general/questions threads, because they all tend to have spoilers, and I don't want to risk being spoiled.

My question is: What kind of game is Higurashi? How do you play it? Is it a choose-your-own-adventure kind of game?

On an on-topic note: I love episode 1!

Woah. Old thread is old.

To answer your question:

1. It's technically not a game but more of a book with music and sounds.

2. Click and read.

3. On the PS2 port, yes.

I'm finally checking out this series, this first episode was pretty cool. I liked the girls' expressions during the Old Maid game. Rena's voice shifts were kinda freaky. I like the opening song as well, I'll definitely have to acquire it.

Glad you liked it. Just for reference, are you listening to the dub or the sub? If you're listening to the dub, are you watching from a disc or streaming off the Funimation site?

I'm watching the dub, I'm watching it on a different site, I think that's all I can say without getting into trouble

Don't worry, the voices get more tolerable...

I like the voices, I just thought her voice shift from cute to psycho was kinda freaky. I figure I'll be able to pay attention to the story more, I tend to miss the fine details on shows when I watched subbed shows. I suppose when I watch the other series that aren't dubbed yet I might have to watch episodes more then once.
