& then you have the set of figures from the game that shall be released in augest - this'll probably be a buy as well as the first limited edtion DVD.. if i'm right these figures also are going for sale of CDJapan.

It says discontinued. Does it mean that I won't find these anywhere els anymore and that I'm lucky to have found them at Chinatown, LA? I really wanted both Renas but I ended up with a Rika and 2 Mions. :/

Speaking of which, which CD was it that has the vocalized version of "You"?

The Maxfactory set is sold out in most places and they have stopped releasing it. It's actually pretty hard to find them these days.

Then again you can always just keep checking, hlj had it available for like a day last month, that's how I snatched my box. Yahoo Japan Auctions is probably another good place to look.

Google search for Higurashi figures or Higurashi Collect 700 and some shops from other countries (that seem to have them in stock) turn up too...

I placed my order with Toys Logic. They said they had everyone except Rika but that they could order Rika for me. I hope they are right because I'd like to have all five...especially Mion and Rika.

It seems that Alchemist staffs are celebrating something... something that relates to "festival".

My bet goes to PS2 port finally went gold, anyone else?

It would be great if it is so, but I don't think they have finished the PS2 game yet...they still havn't have a solid date on the release date

Question

So far as my limited skills can tell, he starts out talking about how much good the cake the staff had at a celebration was, and then says that the previously announced release date of this Sunday (1/28) was propoganda, but he says that that it'll be out soon, and will be as good as the cake. Of course, then he jokes that the cake is salty, and who knows what he means by that... So, basically, we know that they're alive and well at the company and working to get it released. They had something to celebrate about, at least... Or maybe they're all insane from a cake overdose or something.

If Matsuri ends up as vaporware I'm going to be very sad indeed. But based on what was just posted at this thread, they might have decided to include a few manga arcs as well, so maybe that's the source of the delay.

Hey, first post.

Hey, first post.

They are merely including her in PS2 game. There doesn't seem to be any indication of any new chapters from Manga will be used. Two out of three new chapters's synopsis has been revealed, and it's quite unlikely that Miotsukishi-hen, the new ending, will be based on Onisarashi/Yoigoshi/Utsutsukowashi.

There's only two more voice actrors with question marks as their role, so there probably isn't more space for more additional characters...

Well, now that I've read the diary again, it actually says "it went gold".

With the arts of Tateyomi (ask kj or Sushi if you want to know better), diary says "ますたああつプしたよ", obviously means "マスターアップしたよ (= it went gold!)".
Also, the last line says... well... "Ni-ni-... ni- (= 22 2)", so it's safe to assume the X-day will be Feb 22, unless there's more crazy murder in Japan.

They're officially going to announce the date in the event at Jan. 28, but it seems that they couldn't help it... Surely it was one hell of big project for Alchemist too, after all.

I can't tell they look great, actually. You aren't kidding about the quality . I'll take your word on it, though.
And that's definitely Shion, as you can tell by her back

Found this Haruhigurashi.

Exactly what is it? Because it looks really professional for a doujin song disc.

Haruhigurashi is, like you guessed, a "doujin" work, with amazing ressource.
the disc contains :
-Higurashi no Naku goro ni (yes, Goro, and not Koro)
-why, or why not
-Bouken deshoudeshou
-Hare Hare Yukai
-God Knows...
-Lost my Music
-Koi no Nagato densetsu (mikuru adventure song, but with someone mimicking Yuki)

all of them are REMIX, with slight difference in the lyrics
IMO, it is nice, but some parts of the tracks are plain wrong.

Higurashi lost its disturbing/eerie aspect, and was simply flat, dark and rock (and frankly, the chorus and the heavy rock parts weren't my cup of tea). this is a waste, considering how nice were the intro, sound effects and distorsion.
Hare Hare Yukai is sooooo sugarcoated that i thought i would became diabetic with only listening to it

-why, or why not is really impressive. actually, i think it is better than the real thing, considering that Nakae Kouki has a way better english accent that our poor Rekka XD
-Bouken DeshouDeshou is also interesting, with a different style.

but the main common problem in these tracks is : you can often notice the singer inhale/exhale too much, but it is solid quality, considering it is a doujin work.



Oh by the way, Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Character Vol1 was released the 28th, and it is "fantastic"

Characters for this first one : keiichi, Rena and Ooishi
contains 5 tracks :
-Egao Happy Peace (Song by Mai Nakahara (Rena)) + Instrumental
-Keiichi Ooishi no Uwasa no Jikenbo ABC (Song by Hoshi Souishirou and Chaffurin) + Instrumental
-Rena no Kaiimono (side story, worthing 20 min)

completely insanely fun if you ask me (Keiichi and Ooishi's rap is completely crazy )
sample : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxzVIxflNCY

Ah yes, I was about to announce to the world the awkwardness about Oishi and Keiichi rapping. I don't know how to insert a Gar joke here.

Do YOU know Oyashiro-sama? YES Hinamizawa!
...Seriously, what made them think these would make good catchphrases on a T-shirt?
