I don't know if pitied would be the word i'd use - more along the lines of 'i feel sorry for her' - most of the time it felt like she didn't wanna do what she ended up doing, you know the whole two people inside one body thing.

Pity, compassion, feeling sorry for -- call it what you will. I was moved to a feeling of empathy with her suffering (if, indeeed, she was really there).

Well, now that I've watched all four of the episodes and promptly had my brain
turned inside out I've come up with some potential ideas. I think Bron had a
lot of ideas that I did as well:

"Novella" follows.

I have to agree. I couldn't help but go "awww c'mon Keiichi she sounds so pitiful and in pain, at least be more gentle when you go crazy on her. It was creepy yet touching for me how I still felt so sad for her when she still kept apologizing in the cold rain looking up at the window repeating herself.

The whole door-hand thing seems even worse if it turns out to be that the girls weren't psycho after all. Seeing it from their perspective, Kei would be a very, very scary person, and it would have been extremely damaging to them to see their friend "Fall into chaos" like he did.

That's *if* the girls were innocent.

I also felt sorry for little blondie when he waves the bat in her face.

So it seems that the underlying theme of this show really is everything you know or think you know is wrong.

Can't wait for the rest.

Pretty much each episodes gonna get a 10 from me - no show has been able to catch me in the style of suspense like Higurashi has.

The same goes for me too. So far this is the most unique anime I've ever watched, mainly because I've never watched a suspenseful anime before.

were very intense. Almost uncomfortably long. The episode still gets a 10 (as that was obviously the intention), but it's going to make it difficult to rewatch this episode.

This is rapidly becoming my favorite show of the season (something I would have thought to be impossible in a season that included a second season of School Rumble).

First anime episode, which I just didn't feel like watching again (I wanted to watch it subbed), because it was too good (in the way it was supposed to be). This episode was too intense and painful, I think it was more intense than 12'th Narutaru (for me it is very much). I'm a bit afraid of what's going to be next. Straight '10'.

I agree, I thought no anime series would ever top Narutaru in that respect, but then this comes along and does it at episode 4. Stuff like Elfen Lied was intense and disturbing, but it was more of a physical thing (the gore and dismemberment).

There's 22 episodes left, which leaves the possibility that at least ONE of them will be more intense than this one. I'm looking forward to it, but also very worried at the same time.

But then again, maybe not, if we are to heed the advice of KJ and Sushi-Y about-> "#3 Make determinations based on what you believe to be solid facts. This has been mentioned over and over again before, but don't believe everything you see or hear."

I agree that scene was uncomfortable to watch. But I decided to watch it a couple of times to look for important clues and details. It was depressing watching what happened to you favorite characters.

Currently, I am resigned to the fact that what happened was real and not a delusion.

But I knew it's a foretold or whatever, so it happened..
And now, I am really creep out...

Hi all, new guy here. I found this thread while googling for Higurashi looking for... well exactly this sort of discussion. After reading through this thread I thought I'd add my thoughts.

Spoiler for episodes 1 to 4:


Anyway, just my stream of consciousness conjecture. I'll post more when it's not 3 AM and I'm feeling more coherent.
