Higurashi Episode 8 Discussion / Poll

Welcome to the discussion thread for Higurashi no Naku Koroni, Episode 8.

Thread Guidelines
  • No telling or asking for RAWs.
  • Try to keep spoilers from the Game or Manga out of the anime thread. If you need to in reply to someone with a reference to the Game / Manga, either PM them or use Spoiler tags (see example below).
  • Discuss your expectations of the episode if not aired.
  • Be polite to your fellow forum members.
  • Try to keep the discussion on topic and future episode spoilers out of the thread whenever possible.

Spoiler Tag Usage

Using Spoiler Tags is easy. Using this...

[spoiler=title]Don't forget to use the spoiler title[/spoiler]

....will get you this...

Spoiler for title:



ADDITIONAL RULES FOR Higurashi no Naku Koroni
  • Make sure you read the English wikipedia article for Higurashi no Naku Koroni before you ask questions!!!
  • Feel free to share your theories and speculations. In fact, I encourage you to do so as this is what makes this series interesting.
  • I am designating Sushi-Y and Freakman to lead the discussion in the correct path without spoilers as they have played the game in advance. I put confidence in them that they will recognize a member has spilled the beans too far if any other members has begun to play the game.
  • SPOILERS FAR ADVANCED THAN THE CURRENT AIRED ANIME EPISODE WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. THIS INCLUDES THOSE IN SPOILER TAGS!!!. People tend to peek at spoiler tags; especially when they do not know such tag is meant for the episode, only to find it spilling the beans too far advanced in the game storyline.

Well, the finale of Watanagashi-hen seems to be set to be a good one.

Well by looking at the caps up on 2chan, I guess it is safe to say that Rika's suicide at the beginning of Ep. 5 was a prelude to the Watanagashi-hen's answer chapter, Meakashi-hen. So, quite a long time until we get there until most people learn the tricks and answers for this chapter.

Next week is Tatarigoroshi-hen. I feel depressed already.

Well, well, this is better. Since this final episode only had to cover the final day of Watanagashi-hen (+ epilogue), it didn't feel nearly as rushed as the others.

There were some nicely done moments, but some not so nicely done moments as well. I'll note them in the highlight:

Spoiler for Episode 8 highlight:

Now then... Tatarigoroshi-hen next week. My favorite chapter featuring my favorite character (Satoko), boy I hope they can pull it off well.

Why do I get a feeling like they're going to cut out the whole baseball competition thing? Hate mails will fly if they do.

I've decided to come out of lurker mode to (a) finally discuss the series and (b) say "OH MY GOD THAT IS ONE OF THE FREAKIEST, SCARIEST THINGS THAT I HAVE SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!"

Thank you. I'll post more when I actually see the episode... but I think I'll probably love it.

I want to ask: is wind (fansubbers) okay enough for you? I'm waiting for Ayu, but they're too slow. Their quality is great - I can even say through the roof.

That is something you have to judge for yourself. I personally think they are pretty good and subbing sensibly in accordance to the nuance of the show. Not bad for a new group.

That is one of the most beautiful scenes I have ever seen. <3 Ah, it would have been lovely if the animated it. >__<; I loved the scenes with terrified Shion. I really like Yukino Satsuki too... I hope she doesn't go insane after acting these two lovely insane twins. ^__^;
