Oh, you definitely should! It's fantastic. If you were in any way dissatisfied with the First Night, the Second more than makes up for it!

Yep! Only, I can't seem to really find it anywhere. Maybe it's too new to be sold used? Anyway, it's only up adapted the First Season so far. Here it is.

Yes, I had read the first story and loved it, but a bug makes the game crash when I arrive at the opening. By some obscure trick I somehow managed to unlock the second story but I didn't want to read it before finishing the first…

Then I realized that I had finished the Tsukimi story and that there was nothing after the opening, but at the same moment I started to read RGD Last Season and I kind of forgot about Higanbana… it's complicated.

Ah, so this is more than a little late, and suppose it might not exactly be worthy of a post, but the next chapter of the Rose Guns Days manga has been updated! We meet Butler and Amanda, and it's all pretty great.

Chapter 6 is up too for those who can read a little French.

I like Sōichirō's version of Amanda much more than Yaeko Ninagawa's for some reason… Butler is his magnificent self, but that's no surprise.

Agreed- I think it mostly has to do with her facial expressions and body language and the like, she just seems so much more personable. In the novels, even when she was being kind, she came off as aloof and kinda arrogant, but here she seems much more genuine. Also, her smile is really really cute.

I was wondering, do you think I should spoiler tag the real names of the Japanese characters on this page? They are not really plot relevant, but it's still pleasant to discover them in the story, so I don't know…

Not that there are that many people visiting RGD's trope page in the first place.

I think it'd be nice to spoiler tag them just in case some people don't want to get ahead of themselves, although going to tv tropes is actually risking yourself to a lot of spoilers.

In my opinion, it'd be a great thing to spoiler tag them, I'm sure no one will complain because you hid them but some could or would if you showed it.

Hope I helped and didn't actually meddle on your question!

Nope, you're probably right. At least no-one will complain that way.

I removed some sensible spoilers for season 3-4 while I was at it…

Just read Scene 6, and man, that early cameo of Meijiu was so mean... At least show us his face...

Yeah, it's a bit of a pity, but admittedly that scene wasn't strictly necessary.

Also note that on the same page we see the pickpocket kid from Scene 1.

Oh, really? I didn't notice that! (On a side note, I really liked that bit of the manga- It wasn't in the VN (I don't think...) but it felt really natural and was a great way to show the change that Japan had underwent.

Yeah, it was nice to have Leo interact with someone rather than just visiting the city himself (those early exploration parts were quite boring in the VN). It's those little additions that make him more relatable in the manga I think.


Speaking of the manga, I just received my Season 2 volumes, and boy Nana Natsunishi's adaptation is near-perfect. Hell, Ryukishi himself admits that her depiction is better than the VN in the author comment! And I have to agree with him. I like Zel much more in this version, she just seems to have more… substance? I don't know how to say it. She's pretty funny too. Well, when I say "near-perfect", I'm talking about the first half of it, the "Season 2" part; after Wang's entrance there are some heavy issues, although some of it is because the VN itself improved significantly from that point on − meaning I'm more annoyed when bits of dialogue or scenes are cut.

The weirdest one is probably that
Spoiler for 1948 spoilers:
and well, the climax felt really rushed overall. It didn't nearly have the tension it had in the VN, the main reasons being that a)we didn't really have time to become familiar with Wang and b)… unlike the VN, where she was obviously cornered and desperate at some point, Rose is never really shown under pressure here. She takes her decision almost casually.

One bit of explanation at the end was also omitted, which changes the comprehension of the events.

Spoiler:


That Season would have need 4 volumes like S1 I think, or at least one or two more chapters… with only 15 chapters the margin was way too tight. That's a damn shame because 1948 is the year that has the most direct focus on Rose, and the S2 manga… kind of spoiled a good part of it, sadly. She still has some badass moments, though.

There is an interesting Q&A from Ryūkishi at the end of volume 3 also. =)

Talking about this in the Higurashi thread, but 07th Expansion appears to be working on a crossover game, which will feature Rose Guns Days, in addition to Higurashi, Umineko, and Higanbana. I'm pretty excited.

Really? Are there any details as to how it will be or what's it about?

Oops. It's apparently a set of videos... That's a bummer, a crossover sounds really cool. It'd be a great way to attract more readers, too...

So that's what the images on their twitter are about?

I was wondering what it was… it looks pretty funny.

I'll be honest: I'm sorely disappointed. A crossover VN would be so fun.

Oh, yeah, it did sound really cool! They could make a fighting game or maybe even a crazy big story, but I'm sure it'd be real hard so I thought it would end up being a fighting or a type of minigame.

So, what are the set of videos about?

Edit!
I'm on a Umineko forum and one of the admins put the screenshots that have appeared on Ryukishi07's Twitter. They also put the following message that appeared after the last Screenshot:
続き→「07thシアター」とは、過去の上映会作品&当日の上映会の書き下ろしスクリプトを収録した作品で す。アフター上映会にどうしても出られない! という方にぴったり! 十分な数を用意しておりますので、ぜ ひ遊びにいらしてください!

It seems this thing's called "07th Theatre".

What do you guys think?

Honestly, I just want to see it. It doesn't even need to be translated, I just wanna see it!

Also, does anyone know about the official Higurashi Drama CDs? There seems to be two different series- one based on the Visual Novels, and one based on the manga. Do you think we'll ever see a Rose Guns Days Drama CD? I don't think Frontier Works had anything to do with either, so it'll come down to how popular the manga is, I guess. It's published in the Square Enix mags, right? Do you think that's something we'll we see?

07th Theater was a VN distributed at 07th Expansion Party 3. It contains the scenarios for this event and the last one (seeing as the first 07th Expansion Party distributed an RGD info booklet rather than a scenario).

There are no plans for it to be distributed to the general public as of now. And it's not a set of videos, although a literal translation would cause that confusion.
