I need to get my hands on the OP and ED theme.

Normally I don't enjoy gruesome stuff, but I'll watch this, the mystery seems interesting enough.

Nah, I'd rather keep lolis away from sharp objects, if they're gonna be like those.

I am curious and have decided to rewatch the series to find out what might be misinterpreted.....

Spoiler for Episode 1:



Slightly OT, does Fox Mask (the one Rika is holding in the OP) has any symbolism in Japan? I have seen these kind of masks appearing in several films already.

That's part of the mystery and an important part of the game to thinking which faction you were on.

Are you the supernatural faction that believes in something un-human at work? Or are you in the rational faction that believes there is no such this as a supernatural; that everything has a reason and there is human culprit behind everything.

Should this series gets its own forum, that's one forum that I'll make to keep in accordance with one of the interesting portions from the original game - "Supernatural forces at work vs rational reasoning"

But then again, with numerous twists and turns, you'll be tempted to move from one faction to another many times. By the next chapter Watanagashi, you think you've got it right.....then you are in-your-faced with you thought wrong!!!.


and for those who have played the game up to Minagoroshi:

How many post does this thread need for its own forum?

Question,

How many parts does this story has? Does each part have the same character or different characters? It is continous or does part B takes place x number of years after part A?

1. Ask a mod that question.

2. You can check out the game section of Higurashi which answers your question. That thread will likely need many spoiler tags now.


By the way, am I the only person who thinks that spoiler tags have no meaning? It's like a red do-not-touch button. People will press it anyway, and then they yap about how they shouldn't have read it. I guess this is one of those dillemmas where the game has been out for quite some time, there is a quite a large amount of people who have played it already, so there will be spoilers flying around ruining the interest for people outside of Japan who haven't played the game. Oh well, the spoiler tag is there for a reason, and if people are dumb enough to read it beforehand that's their loss I guess.

Sushi-Y and others who have played the game, please go and edit/delete your posts in the game thread to prevent it from being spoiler heavy. It would be greatly be appreciated.

No, it's not just you. They're basically pointless. Which is part of the reason why it amuses me so much to see what people will and will not wrap in them. That being said, sometimes the spoilers actually INcrease my interest in a show. Higurashi no Naku Koroni was interesting one way or the other, but the only reason I started to get into Suzumiya Haruhi was because of some of the spoilers.

I haven't read all of the messages in this forum thread but can anyone clue me
in to where I can get the great opening/closing themes for this. The opening
theme in particular is really compelling - aggressive bass and hard charging
and dramatic keyboard/vocal themes.

More great music in an interesting story.

Seems like CDJapan is the norm for people outside of Japan to buy CDs.

OP theme "Higurashi no Naku Koroni" (Shimamiya Eiko)
goes on sale May 24th

ED theme "why, or why not" (Katakiri Rekka)
goes on sale June 28th

Without all the answers and I heard Minogoroshi has lots of them, the anime-only foreign fans will be left in the cold unless we pick up the game or a kind gamer posts a summary when all of it ends. Well if they really do leave out Minagoroshi in the TV run, I hope it's because they are planning an OVA together with the final chapter or something.
I believe it was released to the fans that it was indeed to go up to Tsumihoroboshi (6th chapter).

The answers will come in subsequent episodes, so you don't need to be worried about being left out of the loop. Its just that more questions will indeed arise in which they will be answered in other chapters as well also. But who knows? Perhaps they are working on an extra DVD release for Minagoroshi which will practically explain everything.



Example: How the hell did Mion know that Kei-chan was with Oishi the police detective in the restaurant? This is answered rather simply in the next chapter, Watanagashi. You think it's freaky that how she could find out, but once you find out the answer in the beginning part of Watanagashi, you go "oh~, so it was that simple. damn, I got all scared for nothing." Then, more freaky shit happens that makes your head spin.
