My expectations... Humm.
Since the first episode of anime covered about 5~ ish Visual Novel chapters, I'm hoping for a slower development on these episodes. Judging from the episode names at animenetworks, I can say I'm very very excited and I've got much better expectations about this one.

Marion 2009-07-08 11:14

I just hope this one won't be as fast paced. With introductions and what not done hopefully pacing goes down to a more normal level.

Alaya 2009-07-08 11:25

I have a feeling it's not going to be as I expect...

Hope my intuition is wrong.

vandakiara 2009-07-08 11:32

I think they'll slow down the pace for this episode - the only reason why the 1st was so rushed was because of the characters' intro...

*looks at the kihihihi pic*
Okay. I now seriously remember how creeped out I was while playing Legend of the Golden
Witch for the first time.

Archer 2009-07-08 11:56

It seems that this episode finished at the revealing of the first twilight.

Oekitarts 2009-07-08 11:59

AGH... at least I know what to expect this time.
Thanks Archer. Yes, that's both positive and negative. XDDD

Kazuki_Kun 2009-07-08 12:00

Spoiler for The moment you've all been waiting for.:

Return of the shadows!

Kitsu 2009-07-08 12:01

I'm fine with this...I don't need to look at their poor faces with a zoom. As long as the first tilight happens and isn't peeped out like Eva it's okay

Oekitarts 2009-07-08 12:01

*sees picture*

Varion 2009-07-08 12:01

Golden Slaughterer survived :D Awesome.

Thisguy 2009-07-08 12:01

Well, at least it was not as detailed as the comic but still... :uhoh:

Anyhoo, they used good number of VN BGMs in this episodes.
Coupled with butterfly SE, that sure was enjoyable for these who experienced VN.
And... that was Highrashi anime that Maria was watching, wasnt it? :heh:

Gave it a 8 for effective usage of VN musics.
Gotta admit that story pacing is still crammed over limit, but this time around they did what they could do I suppose.

vandakiara 2009-07-08 12:02

it's not censored... is it? I think I can see blood D:

*which is a good thing*

Kitsu 2009-07-08 12:03

Whaaaaaaaaat...nine year old Maria watches Higurashi

And it's calming to hear that more then one BGM survived I'll enjoy this episode for sure

Oekitarts 2009-07-08 12:03

This is seriously great that they kept a lot of music/sounds.
(edit: OH MAN.. I seriously gotta stop looking at this thread. Spoiling myself. XD)
Spoiler for Higurashi:

Varion 2009-07-08 12:07

I remember hearing at least:

Closed My Heart
Also that clock sound that chimes in the 'show everyone before twilight' scene.

Unfortunately they didn't use 犯行の予告状読み上げ(ラック眼力) for the letter reading :(

Klashikari 2009-07-08 12:07

This episode was again a skip / fast forward fest that I couldn't exactly stomach it completely...

so far

Spoiler for Episode 2:

Will post a proper opinion once the raws are up, but this episode is REALLY not any better in pacing...
The only thing that pleasantly surprised me in this episode was the fact they used Golden Slaughterer for the last scene. Aside of this, the Drama CD just overwhelm the rest with ease.
