I understand what you said. The anime follows the 'paths' you can take in the game and the endings that go with it. Thus when one episode takes the bad ending, the next episode would go back some time and take 'another path' that would not lead to the bad ending but another one, right?

I just mean that for people who don't know about the series and just watch everything with no knowledge of the game first would naturally think that characters keep on coming to life with no explanation.

Actually the game was never split into paths - it didn't have choices at all. It was a series of visual novels, and each seperate one was a different story arc - so people who read through them first would've been just as confused as you are.

You couldn't even really call them games, considering there was literally 0 player interaction.

No because there are no "paths" since there is no selection points like a normal run-of-the-mill type of game.

Simply (and I mean VERY SIMPLY) put:

This is Higurashi:

I understand the events and what leads to them. What I want to know and still struggle with is how character from A is connected to B. I know thw kami pulls Rika into new 'worlds'(Deminsions). Why do other characters sometimes remember things if only Rika is being sent to new worlds?

Not the memories... Is more like warnings... If the memories were passed, then all the problems would have been resolved easier than in any of the arcs...

Well couldn't it be considered locked memories? They can't actually see them, but they change the course? I mean what about when he saw himself beating Shion and Rena(first Season). Couldn't that be considered a locked memory that was shortly opened?

How do you people watch Higurashi.. Damn.. I got scared the crap out of after watching the first chapter of the 1st season... How do you not get scared when you see an innocent little girl who gets massive wrinkles and carries around a machete or cleaver or whatever deadly weapon it may be, and has her eyes shaded everytime she says something peculiar.... Man, I got scared by reading what happens in the game chapters on Wikipedia... I couldn't sleep properly that night. -_- It was sad...

Higurashi is only scary when you're watching the early eps at 4 AM (like I did).

It's a pretty awesome experience, though.

I've been watching the anime version of Higurashi for a while now and have seen all the episodes of the first season as well as all of Kai that has already been fansubbed, and there's still one thing I don't understand:

Spoiler for Questions about Onikakushi-hen arc:


As I've said before, I've seen the entire series that's been subbed thus far, so spoilers probably won't be much of an issue for me. I'm just not entirely sure what happened during the first story arc, so somebody please inform me.
