This is probably a little off topic, but I just want to add that your impression of the "atmospheres" of each arc (game chapter) can change greatly once you learn more about the overall story.

Just like the game, Higurashi is probably one of the best example for animes that you should rewatch everytime you learn something new in the newest arc (chapter): these new revelations will help you notice things in the earlier arcs (chapters) that you wouldn't have noticed before, and behaviours + reactions from characters that were "confusing" or "made no sense" before will all begin to make sense to you, changing the overall atmosphere of the story significantly. (An example would be my comment before about Onikakushi being a "tragedy" rather than a "suspense horror")

Spoiler for another off-topic talk:


EDIT: Episode 5 images, fresh from the... oven(?)!

What is the best sub so far? Subs by wind seem to be lacking.
Anyone seen Ayu and Triads? comparison check please...

Well, sol, I trust Ayu ... remember Traumend? It's pretty good, too.

Triad by far. Theirs seems to be the most careful translation. However, they're also the latest group to get started on the translation, so they're only up to Ep.2. Don't feel bad using WIND, they're decent and also seemingly the fastest.

Hmm, i've been a long time lurker on these forums and this is honestly the first thread and anime that's made me want to participate in speculation here - The anime is incredible! the way its been written and directed, fantastic, keeps me on the edge of my seat and constantly guessing as to whats going on. I've had eps one and two on my hard drive for a while, and watched them today - I immediately got hooked and got ep three and raw ep four.

For anyone wondering if they should bother watching this anime, if you're the kind of person who enjoys a mysterious and well written plot, look no further.

As for my speculation:

Spoiler:


Great series so far, I hope the quality keeps up.

Spoiler:

On a side note: Rena and Mion = <3

Bron's ideas are pretty well developed. But I have some questions/criticisms, even taking into account that TIP:

The truth is that what happened during those episodes is in reality just Cthulhu and his cultists doing . I wonder if creators of the original game are big fans of Lovecraft's books .

I haven't been talking much in this thread mainly 'cause its all speculation, but seriously no other anime has been able to suck me in like the first 4 episodes of Higurashi has.. i know there's a hell of a lot more to it - and i have some ideas floating around in my head... maybe i'll share them later. ^^;

Wow... episode 4 was beyond intense. I've never seen a show that's developed itself quite like this one, that's for sure! I can't wait to see what happens next. And I'm really, really glad that I didn't watch ep 4 at night.
