Huh? Do you actually mean Kugimiya Rie? (I assume Avisch thought the same too).
I blame the meltdown of Iceland's economy for my slip up. As you said, I was talking about Kugimiya Rie, whose last distinctive role I heard was Alphonse Elric in FMA, who knows how many years ago. She may be a good VA, but the fact that she has inmersed herself into a character mold has meant the death of her possibilities right there. Even if she is physicially able to do many type of roles, it has come to a point that the industry won't let her experiment much.

I also knew and heard about such roles as well. The main problem is that she is literally flooding her performances with her usual and generic one dimensional "loli tsun" voice.
As any seiyuu, she probably has more potential elsewhere (as seen in first ep in Akane Iro, as Yuuhi), but the vast problem is that even with her characters that don't have much in commons, they are basically the same and don't have subtle differences (except maybe shana in some extent). Pretty much agreeing for the silly mold effect (and she isn't only one for that: Noto Mamiko is approaching dangerously to that syndrome...)

Take for example Nakahara and Tamura: both have a specific "moe" voice, but they add a lot of subtle differences (despite very similar, Rena (Hack//Legend of the twilight bracelet) and Rena (higurashi) are very distinct, same between Mei (clannad) and Rika (Higurashi)).

Given that the Higurashi OVA already has a complete release schedule, and the last status report on Umineko the TV series was that it was still in the production stage...

a few months I would guess I would say April since it is a big title and good stuffs pop out October and April. They would perhaps have enough to do at least 13. I hope for Madhouse *shifty eyes* I have a feeling Deen took it on....

^ But isn't Madhouse doing Chaos;Head? Even though I am waiting for Umineko (and Higurashi Rei but that's coming up soon xD) I gotta say it'll be out for either summer or fall 2009.

And I also have a feeling that Deen will take it as well. I'll be happy if that doesn't happen.

We haven't gotten any info on who animating Umineko right?

A studio of Madhouse's caliber is well used to working on few projects simultaneously and I believe Chaos;Head is not their only fall anime. Not to mention that chances are Chaos;Head will be over way before Umineko airs or even before the work on it actually starts.

If Madhouse can do 6 anime series this season, 2 planned next season, and a bunch of OVA/Movies planned...

Then again, there's like no news whatsoever since they released the CD back in August...I wonder if they are waiting for ep4 to come out first...

Hmm...I guess that we'll wait until they release the next game.
We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
At least we are sure if they ever dub it in the US...4kids will not dub it XD

Honestly, after what they have done with C;H, I would rather welcome DEEN once again than madhouse.
Until they use a budget like DN or Casshern, I would not give credits to madhouse after how C;H turned into...

Yeah. I would like DEEN to do Umineko. Mostly because DEEN was able to capture some nice atmosphere in the first season of Higurashi. The C;H anime has some atmosphere, no near the amount that Higurashi's first season had though.

Then again Madhouse have created tons of anime with brilliant atmosphere - Monster, Gunslinger Girl, Kaiba to name a few off the top fo my head.

Thinking of Monster I think Mami Koyama could be a great Eva...just like she was in Monster. At least based on my impressions from the first episode of the Umineko game.

I would however believe that there is still an issue with the proper size to allocate. Unlike higurashi, an arc with mere 4 episodes is downright suicide.

I'll get this out of the way first; I know nothing about this particular series aside from the fact that it's an alternative setting to Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, so if my follow question makes me seem like a dumbass, then so be it

Could/Should Higurashi no Naku Koro ni be considered a prerequisite to watching this series?

Nope, I don't find the stories that similar, at all.

Personally I find the Umineko story a little bit more interesting, no matter how much I love Higurashi. Let's see how it develops.

Lets put it this way one arc of Umineko is two to three times as long as an arc of Higurashi.

Spoiler for Seiyuu:
You know, if the first one turns out to be true, it would be the BEST EPIC WIN for the entire season

I am really interested to see how they adapt this story even more so than Higu because now I actually know the original source where it is based off from

If madhouse were to do it I want them to use Death Note, Monster and Kurozuka kinda quailty. The Choas; Head isn't one of their budget spenders...I was surprised at the quaitly compared to some of their other shows. I wonder if Shaft animated it that would be pretty neat too. But I don't think the pacing would word for the kind of animation they do.
