hmm...by looking at the Futaba-chan image board, I sincerely hope they didn't cut out the scene where Rena kicked some verbal whoop-ass towards Kei in that scene. It seems the part where Satoko cries on things that implies the type of abuse has been cut out. But at least the images seem to show heart thumping moments where people can finally cheer for Kei's actions (even though they are out to the extreme...).

Probably the best episode so far.

Keiichi does not know mercy. Ugh...

This was the first time during the series where i really liked Miki Itou's voice acting. Ep11 Takano was superb.

Forget that, they skipped the entire "KOOL" scene. No high-speed thinking, and no KOOL-mode Keiichi.

Spoiler for complaints:


The Teppei scene was shortened down, as expected, and I'm not going to blame the anime for shortening it since the whole chase WAS dragged out pretty long in the novel.

But there was one particular section during that scene in the novel that really burned an image into my head:
Spoiler:


On the other hand, the Takano scene near the end of this episode was really nicely done. Itou Miki-san's voice is as sexy and creepy as ever. ^^; Hard to believe she's the same person doing Fuji-nee's voice in Fate anime.

Again, the episode sort of got cut off at an odd spot (in the middle of a scene). But this one's not as bad as the last episode cut-off point (omitting the whole scene where Keiichi went into KOOL-mode after witnessing Satoko's breakdown).

Oh well, there's going to be 5 episodes for Tatarigoroshi-hen, so hopefully they won't have to rush the ending. I mean, this chapter's ending was absolutely overwhelming, so I pray they won't mess it up... too much.

K1, next time you want to kill someone, use a crowbar instead!!!! one hit and they die, no need to run all over the place lol

And the blonde chick...she is so evil, I don't think she die in any of the scenerio at all, she probably murders that stupid photographer everytime lol.

It had very good atmosphere through episode. Maybe because its raining here gave extra impact but I think it was well done although Kei did decision quite fast. Outcome was expected when I saw bat.

While it did seem a bit out-of-the-blue without KOOL-mode Kei, surprisingly it still was done plausibly. While yes they did again cut out some scenes that might've created a larger impact, it is not too big of a deal to get in a ruff about. They did what they were supposed to do - covering the main points.

They coolness factor diminished ten-fold when Kei said "Higarushi no naku koro ni" in the anime compared to the game. In the anime, it felt too rushed and the result was corniness. In the game...it sent chills down my spine.

And Takano was portrayed beautifully here...very creepy. Itou Miki's shallow voice brought up the creep factor five-fold at the end. Great episode.

Now, we're on to the next episode where the REAL stuff starts to happen (remember - each chapter goes into full-gear always after the Watanagashi Festival).

What's with the subs' link? There's no Higurashi 11 in that tracker, yet Animesuki has it listed. Strange...

That's what you call a screw up. Was pulled out because of an error.

Well, I was one of the lucky ones who got the episode before it was pulled back. I was getting frustrated how Higurashi was advancing in ep 5-8 (because of animation/direction/voice acting etc..) and now after watching 9-11, I've become a fan of this show once more. Yet I still ponder if a studio like KyoAni handled this show, could this show have been turned out differently?

After episode 1-2, episode 11 has been another episode that really freaked me out. It's not because what happened in those episodes, rather, the freaky part comes out when one reflects on it. For example, Keiichi in one part of the episode is talking to his mother about what she considers a good murder mystery novel, where the criminal gets away with it. Actually he wants know how he can get away by killing someone and his line of thinking wasn't hypothetical either. Calm, calculating pre-meditative murder is always creepy. I'm used to this guy loosing his nerve, acting like an idiot as he got himself too much in it because the dude was too nosy. In this episode, he is a cold blooded killer, so the change in attitude of Keiichi was refreshing.

Give this episode an 8.

P.S. As I read Sushi-Y, I've this urge to see of this hi-speed-thinking Keiichi.

Seen as it seems to be getting asked every 2 minutes in the channel, to save them having to answer any more of the same question:

The torrent's been dropped because a translation comment was left on the final release, as shown here, and should be available by this time tomorrow. Probably. It's better than the usual saturday/sunday release date anyway

Great episode.

Yes, Kei's development felt like being a little too fast. I'm not say surprising, as far as I'm concerned, but just it's like there may have been some temporal jump.
I feel so sorry everytime by reading that important things have been left off , but still, chapeau to this episode.
Excellent rendering of all the Kei's actions.

Spoiler:


The quote, "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni", yes ... maybe a bit.. out of the blue? But very impactful nonetheless.

Takano, lol, she's so magnificent.

Spoiler:


And now, since the hot stuff still has going to start, I'm really looking forward for how Tatarigoroshi will proceed.

I wish this anime would never end.

9/10

LOL, I was wondering what the hell that meant when I was watching it.

Can someone give some insight on the important parts from the game that were left out of eps 11?
