By the way, I was thinking : it would be best to keep the comments in Japanese (at least the meaningful parts, to turn off potential people actually just *looking* to be spoiled.
That kind of defeats the purpose of being an English forum...besides I believe the well-known word on the forum is that people are to be talking in English.

If people look here, it's their own responsibility. There's a reason why it says "SPOILERS GALORE - DO NOT READ."

Hey, I get my Higurashi stuff legit, I have the receipts to prove it.

Depending on how anal Canadian customs wants to be, I'll probably get my disk anywhere between 3 days to a week after 8/13.

And then it'll be a couple of sleepless nights for me to power read through it. ^^;

My biggest concern: will there be romance between Keiichi and (insert heroine name) after all!? (probably not)

Minagoroshi (皆殺し) literally means "killing everyone", it's probably best translated as "massacre".

Matsuribayashi (祭囃し, or 祭囃子) refers to the style of Japanese folk music played during traditional festivals. Literally, they're "musics that accompanies festivals".

Just wondering what website are you ordering the next chapter from?

Also I was wondering do you think they will package all 4 of the answer arcs together like they did with the question arcs?

I'm wondering about that too... I'm all for the Golden Pair (sorry, Mion). I like Mion better (and Shion even more so), but Rena and Kei-chan to me seems like the best match. Personally, I want Rena-chin to be happy as Tsumihoroboshi Hen's stuff was pretty depressing.

But even more so then the pairing... (b)AKASAKA~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~!!!
This time protect Rika-chan~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

^^

(and teppei/ritsuko don't come back, you're done)

I'm still rooting for Satoshi to come back, because it would make for the best finale. Of course it would raise many eyebrows, but I want to believe he's alive somewhere.

Incidentally, that's probably one of the last places you can buy Matsuribayashi-hen online. Everywhere else pretty much has their preorders maxed out. ^^;

What are you talking about? It's all about Keiichi x Satoko! Come on, think of all that tsundere loli!

Like this!


Rena and Keiichi are great too, until you consider their mental stability. Come on, you saw that roof scene. And they do that for fun.

Wow, really? Damn... and I was hoping to hold off buying it too. Oh well, better to be sure, preordered. Thanks for the info

Okay, I'm out the topic before people's copies start arriving and things get dangerous.

Exactly what makes them so great.

There's something about crazies in love that's beautifully poetic.

I've been meaning to ask: do we ever find out what happened to Satoshi?

Is there ever an absolute answer to all of the arcs or no?

Technically, the puzzle was already completed for us in Minagoroshi. This chapter is more like a finale where we finally learn the whys and hows behind the puzzle pieces.

And what's with the "brilliant!" already? Aren't you just starting?

Anyhoo, I'm beginning too. Takanon moe~ ^^

...the beginning was BRILLIANT, to steal kj's words. Absolutely top notch brilliant. I had suspected something of the sort to begin the last chapter, but the actual truth far exceeded what I had imagined, and made Minagoroshi much more cooler as well. Wow.

On the other hand, I can see the "puzzle" is going to give me nightmares ( ̄﹏ ̄) Sorry, Oyashiro-sama, but I'm going to give up for the time being and go to sleep...

Only read the intro so far, but I gotta say some things needed too much of a suspension of disbelief.
Spoiler:

But not to sound too grumpy, the intro fleshed out You-Know-who into a much more believable villain.
I also love how he had the tact of censoring all relevant part of the tortures. Goes to show that ero/gore scenes are only a gimmick.

And the new tracks rocked. Especially that faster remix of that song-which-name-i-cant-remember.

I see what you mean by the puzzle now, kj... this is going to hurt my head
Spoiler:

Besides that, the prologue was excellent. With a history like that, it's no wonder that the "fate" was unbreakable up to this point.

But Hanyuu was totally cool in the end there. ^^

And all those beautiful music tracks~

Yes, Hanyuu shows more strength here than she did previously, and she's fully capable of being a part of the bukatsu.

Finished connecting all the pieces together, now onward to the main story of Matsuribayashi-hen.

Akasaka kicks ass!

I know this will be a spoiler, but does that scene happen in the game, or is it a fan piece?
