Hehehe...I can just see those unsuspecting viewer's faces when they get to episode 5...

"WHAT?!? AREN'T THEY ALREADY DEAD?!?!11?ONE!?"

Kind of a weird episode cutoff, right after the first episode of a new story arc. Whereas other anime story arcs sorta blend together, Higurashi doesn't exactly quite do the same...

I think they should make the title: "When Cicadas Cry".
Most likely because it reminds me of someone describing it as otherworld beings communicating.

I don't know why some people are upset about the English name; "When They Cry" was the English title right underneath "Higurashi no Naku Koroni" on the games.

Wow, I never realised that... I suppose they added that clue for the anime, because the game logo didn't have the blood trail...

Well, some people are claiming that "When They Cry" was actaully the tagline rather than the title.

Personally, I prefer the original, but that's becuase I think it sounds better- "When They Cry" is a bit too simple, and doesn't sound mysterious enough.

The english title is ok..but sort of wierd. "When They Cry - Higurashi" Actually it is a decent mix of the Japanese title and english title/tagline. But I think it wound sound more meaningful (and somewhat more menacing..atleast to me) if the kept it literal "When Cicadas Cry".

I'm probably obsessing over a title......But I'm okay with that.

As long as the title doesn't act as customer repellent (recalls "Shadow Warrior Chronicles"), it's really not that important.

The Rental DVDs had the same picture, only with reversed color (like a photo-negative). I can foresee the R1 going the same route for the DVDs.

As for actual covers, I can see the first one for the first disc, the Mion/Keiichi one for the second disc, the Satoko/Rika one for the third, the Akasaka/Rika one for the fourth, the Shion/Satoshi for the fifth, the Rena in the train for the sixth, and the final for the final disc, assuming 7 discs of course. The 4th to seventh could go without the reversed color since the mood does change a bit after the first three chapters anyways. The only ones we'd be without is the stripping one (which is too fanservice-y anyways) and the Rika/Satoko in the field, which could easily be included as pencil boards anyways. In house art is a bad idea though. Elfen Lied's covers weren't especially nice, neither were Narutaru's.

I GOT SECOND PLACE IN THE CONTEST!!!! Sweet! I'm happy now.

The only voice I can really think of for Keiichi is sadly JYB. I like him, but he's in EVERYTHING. Crispen Freeman would make an excellent Akasaka though. Stephanie Sheh would do wonders as Rena too.

As for disc order, my choices stay the same as above, but without either the last one or the Rika/Akasaka one, one of which will likely end up on the collectors box.

Indeed. That has always been the official English title, but people are upset because it sucks as an English title. Trust me when I say that for a native English speaker, it just doesn't do it.

Really? I think it has a certain mystery to it--although maybe I'm just able to say that because I already know what Higurashi's about.

Well the Castlevania series has been known as Demon Castle Dracula/Dracula's Demon Castle but that just doesn't sound right to a lot of people. Same goes for that Shin Megami Tensei game with the insanely long subtitle.

Some people will bitch and whine regardless of Geneon's (or whoever's) decision. Ignore them, since they usually know little to nothing about what they're talking about.

Are you insinuating something, missy?

I insiutate nothing. XP

They also did Erementar Gerad, didn't they? I really liked that dub. With this new addition I'd say Geneon is tied with Funi for favorite.

I got first.

I didn't really want to win though... I just entered without thinking within a minute of it being posted. I'll probably sell the bobblehead and the figurine. (too bad that they don't give you the first Higurashi DVD + artbox for free)

Shadow Miko, did you screw up your quotes? I don't remember posting that


I didn't even realize there was a contest until last night. I got over the horrible feeling of loss once I found out that I didn't want any of the prizes, though, so it's all good

I also entered without thinking, but I'm happy about the fact that I won. I wish they would've given the DVD though. That would've made me really happy.

I would have been happy that I won that contest if they gave me even just the DVD without the artbox.

As it is though, meh.
