How did you find this? Amazing lol can't wait for this tbh.

I wonder which arc(s) they're going to cover. I sure hope it's one of the NDS arcs, preferably Tokihogushi-hen or Kotohogushi-hen.

fuff 2011-03-24 15:03

maybe it will be about umineko and higurashi!! thats what im hoping for!

How would that work out? I can't really see that.

fuff 2011-03-24 15:36

well it could be a random episode...i think theres a manga version of it!

maybe a pool episode? or something

momobunny 2011-03-24 17:10

I'd rather it be an actual story than a mere fanservice extra. Though the odds of Umineko having anything to do with this are slim, I think it would've been included in the initial announcement if that was the case.

It looks like we're getting a new Higurashi OVA series you guys. (I just noticed this was mentioned in other posts... sorry for repeating!)

The official website will be updated with more information later.

WarriorKK 2011-03-24 22:07

LOL... Batsukoishi-hen!! A big fanservice arc!
Maybe I'll scanlate it.


Joly 2011-03-24 22:10

I hope it's only one fan service episode. But still, more Higurashi episodes is fine by me!

This news makes me so happy...

WarriorKK 2011-03-24 22:21

Yeah. And I hope the rest is more intereting than Saikoroshi-hen.

fuff 2011-03-25 01:41

where can i read Batsukoishi-hen!?? or look at the scans? what is it about

WarriorKK 2011-03-25 02:20

thanks soo much!! <3

Joly 2011-03-25 02:47

For some reason, the style seems slightly different from Rei's art style? I'm not sure... but I like it better than Rei's first promo image.

fuff 2011-03-25 02:51

new higurashi season!! had just made my day! i like higurashi more than umineko!

about the style ya it seems slightly different

Hiera 2011-03-25 11:13

Wow, new Higurashi season! Can't wait to watch it!

Bluemail 2011-03-25 12:07

Great news! More Higurashi is always nice, though I hope it will not be just fanservice. Batsukoishi is bound to be one, but I hope the original arcs are something more mysterious. Higurashi "Glitter" isn't helping... Maybe they're turning Higurashi into a slice-of-life anime about their past-the-incident lives. :uhoh:
Could be kind of lame, though also interesting, because they're all lovable characters. Well, I think it will be mostly humorous, but I hope it will have some tingling Higurashi feeling to it. I'll watch it to the end, whatever it turns out to be.

Are the new arcs actually all new, or are some of them from Kataribanashi or similar? I haven't read any, but curious if someone does know about them.

I hope they'd animate Chiru soon though... With better director than Chiaki Kon. Maybe it'll be in winter season or spring next year. Rei and Umineko's first season overlapped a bit. So I shouldn't think of Kira as any sort of obstacle, maybe it is meant to raise interest in the When They Cry anime again and then churn out Chiru to accompany it.

2012 is Higurashi's 10th anniversary, hoping for lots of 07th Expansion.

OFFTOPIC: Can't keep Death Note out of my head because of the OVA's title! Well, darker Higurashi plot would of course benefit of the "killer" meaning of Kira. :D
The happy Rei-esque blue color doesn't help though.

Nemu 2011-03-25 12:58

OMG, more Higurashi? So is it a whole season or just one episode? -confused- Either way I'm so happy to have more Higurashi, it feels like forever since I watched a new episode for it. ;-;

The art style looks really cute, can't tell if it's different from Rei's or not. I like Rei's art style but it wasn't my favorite so trying a new one would be cool.

Hopefully this means more merchandise like figures. Please, please be nendoroids or figmas!
