That of course implies that he watched those anime first. If anything, I gave away the twists the other ones. Then again, if you've already watched Higurashi, you can already see the mechanic's flags a mile away.

Yeah, I was real annoyed when I found that out. Did Ryukishi07 have to make that story so painfully similar?

Dice-Killing Chapter aside, I did say seasons 3 and 4 would be a toss-up in terms of enjoyment. He enjoyed Season 2, so it stands to reason that he wasn't just in it for the violence and "gore" (because let's face it, the Higurashi anime is actually pretty light on that). As such, he enjoyed the series for its characters, and therefore he may enjoy the silliness that 66% of the OVA's provide.
