This just happened in Nagasaki.

I seriously hope this doesn't affect Higurashi or any other shows, but the timing of this news is worst imaginable.
You've gotta be shitting me...

Wow. Look what all of that irresponsible media reporting of the earlier killing has lead to. I fully expect all news and current affairs shows to be replaced by scenes of yacht cruises set to pretty music and documentaries on the kitchens of the QM2.

It's my reaction and I'm sticking to it.

Dammit,... I was waiting for eps 12 this entire week, and now it's cancelled? Seriously, if only I could make a really insensitive joke, it would be:
Spoiler for VERY tasteless joke:


But then again, I guess I can see why the show is cancelled. Some girl killed her dad with an axe, and a 23-cm-something thingy was mentioned (in the youtube clip)... I don't think it's because of the episode itself, or any connections to the show. However, I'm pretty sure there're a bunch of people in the country who're shaken by the incident, and therefore, any shows that HINTS violence could easily make things spiral out of control (Be it copycats or complaints from parents who are pushed over their edges). Seriously, showing any show that is or used to be associated with violence at the moment would be very VERY tasteless.

In addition, I can see the media's desire to associate the incident with Higurashi. Sure, Higurashi isn't about a girl going about killing people (yeah, we're talking about girlS and a boy with a bat... oh wait, i think it's mostly about friendship and trust and busting mysteries), but it does contain a scene that is remarkably similiar, and they were merely pointing it out (though albeit strongly).

I just hope that higurashi won't get cancelled. Hopefully, those who were affected by the incident will be rational enough to NOT start pointing fingers just to find someone/something to put the blame on. And if they DO, I hope there won't be many directed to the series.

They just need to put a ban on axes. No more selling them.

Oh come on.... If they stop selling axes then the news will have nothing to report. Killings will stop immediately and people with murderous intent will stand around looking dazed and confused, unable to complete the task. Peace will reign over a somewhat impotent humanity.

Sorry, I'm not taking this very seriously.

It was almost as if this event was timed perfectly to plunge this thread into a pit of despairing darkness.... But that's just the paranoid sadfan in me. In all open likelihood, nothing may happen at all and Higurashi will continue.

....

Just don't quote me on that when everything falls apart, again.

I was really hopeful but now I very much doubt we will see it today. AT-X is probably our only hope now and that chance has been reduced significantly. At least it done by a boy this time and it was unsuccessful.

If there's an axe-like scene in 12, can't they just it it and show the rest of it?

I doubt it'll matter much, I have a feeling the second incident will be the nail in the coffin. I wouldn't be surprised if Higurashi becomes indefinitely delayed because of this fiasco.

Do you think they'll continue with the DVDs? I'd hate to see Higurashi shortened in any way because of this. I don't want to see Matsuribayashi squeezed into an OVA or something.

I'm sure they would resort to DVD's if the show really gets cancelled (but I really hope not).

Everyone seems to be at level 4/5 these days. I don't see why media won't try to take advantage of anything under the sun that could relate to anything.

Oh please. That could never happen, it's CLEARLY some fictionus material's fault. {end sarcasm}

What the hell are you doing? Trying to explain things logically? Just jump on the anti-violent entertainment bandwagon! [/sarcasm]

Of course the logical and way more likely inspiration for the second idiot who tried to settle a score with an axe is that he got hint from the news but that would hardly stop the media "experts" to claim it was something else.

Give me a break, thousands of people die every day. Why don't we stop showing in any kind of death in movies too because it might sadden the relatives of the dead? That's crazy. If one doesn't want to watch violence for whatever reason then he doesn't have to, period.

That said, if they had stopped ALL violent shows, at least this would be somewhat logical (albeit ridiculously exaggerrated) reaction. Did they? No, the chose the easiest targets. What does that tell us? That these people don't care one bit about sensitivity, they just want to look good in the eyes of the average Japanese citizen.
