I watched the first Higurashi series over a year ago. I just now marathoned Kai and Rei over 2 days. I still have some questions.

I feel bad that Rika had to destroy the perfect world to get back to the one she and the others fought so hard to achieve, but it was the right choice. It taught her a lot of lessons she wouldn't have learned otherwise. Mainly, to deal with her parent's deaths, to value her life and this world more, and live the rest of her life as a normal human.

But now the story of the True End is over in anime form, and there were things that bothered me both about this OVA and what happens after. Why did Hanyuu switch back to a non-corporeal body in this arc? Was she lying when she said the truck had run over Rika, or did they manage to change that bit of recent past to a glancing blow?

How many years will it take before Satoshi recovers? I guess this answer is different depending on whether I use the VN or the anime's True End. I thought I saw somewhere that Miyoko escapes the clinic, what happens after? Does Keiichi end up with one of the girls, or get a harem end?

Edit: more questions: How did Akasaka get to be so badass? How long could Rika originally go back in time when she died? Was it over five years? After all, she did know about all the deaths when she talked with Akasaka. Where can I find out more about the Soul Brothers?

Spoiler for Akasaka:


Not sure about how far Rika could go back, but I'm guessing back to the year the dam construction was frozen, so when Akasaka first came to Hinamizawa in other words.

I'm pretty sure the Soul Brothers was just a joke for that episode and isn't mentioned anywhere else, but I could be wrong.

I was under the impression that Rika use to relive her entire life at the start, then it got shorter and shorter as Hanyuu's power wained.

And Soul Brothers....considering how everyone reacts to the Detective, that Tomake is usually out of town...yeah...outside of the joke arcs...not happening.

I thought "Perfect World" was supposed to be Minagoroshi-hen; "Sinless World" is Saikoroshi-hen.

Takano ends up killing everyone in Minagorishi-hen, Matsuryubashi-hen is what you are thinking of.

About the Soul Brothers, they were in the sound novel.
Spoiler for image:

They appear during the story of the unlockable mini-games and also in Batsukoishi-hen which is part of Rei. That arc was replaced by Hajisarashi-hen (pool arc) for the anime though.

Thank you all for answering my questions.

You and Cavuy are agreed on this. Maybe I should be rethinking that this was ever an actual world, and not merely a dream Hanyuu created.

That Rika's greater consciousness had a chance to manifest briefly prior to her resurrections, but not significantly influence most of the worlds makes a lot more sense to me than my original thought that she was able to go back that far in time when she first started dying.

It seems the Soul Brothers only other appearance is as a slapsticky story similar to Rei 1, that was packaged with the Meakashi-hen VN. Both wikipedia and Orophin explained this to me.

Interestingly, Soul Brothers are heavily mentioned in Drama CD. If you have a copy of c73 special drama CD, you will understand that Soul brothers are mostly for comical relief

Episode 5 is going to be a fun episode, 'Daybreak Chapter'. Based on Higurashi Daybreak PC game.

I think those posts should be moved to the Q&A, I guess they will be.

Interesting wrap up to the series proper. Anyone else think that tool used to sacrifice Hanyuu looked like "The Club" the anti-theft device for cars, that goes on the steering wheel. Mostly talking this episode, but even still, it was good. as was Rena's little game with the candy.

Yeah, few things in this world are better than that side-shot of Rika smiling.
