Yeah, but they do do it all the time, even if offscreen--

And as a fan, I would PREFER if they just let Mion keep her tattoo. One pieces are fine too, Japan!

For the record though, when one has a large, um, chestular region, two pieces actually are more comfortable than a one piece.

So keeping that in mind, I think Mion's bathing garb is actually relatively modest. Continuity killing, but modest .

I don't see how. Aside from being an evil nurse, she's usually just polite and shifty.

I seem to recall that that was a popular swimsuit style in Europe in the early 1980s. But they she has multiple syringes in each hand like throwing knives...that's more worrisome.

Well seriously Takano can't even swim in that top, can she?
And yeah Mion is pretty modest actually, for an anime character anyway.

Okay, there are lots of spoilers lying around for someone who hasn't played the game or read the manga. And I really don't wanna be a person who asks questions without reading other peoples posts, but thats the only chance I have now. xD

To introduce myself and my accuintance with Higurashi, I only watched the full 2 seasons. Now I'm going to ask questions that contains spoiler from season 1 and 2, so you are warned, but If possible, please answer them in a mysterious way - No spoilers and if possible, a clarification!

The lady at the end of season 2, Some say its Rika some say its some witch (which I don't want to know WHO that is). When are we going to find about about her? Ova's? The additional higurashi season (if it comes, that is)? Umineko no naku koro ni?

Is there still a big truth that we are not aware of? As far as I know, Rika is the key to whole events, and thats the biggest story and the truth? Are there still some events to unfold, rather then just spawning in random worlds and trying not to die?

How is Umineko no naku koro ni related to Higurashi? Events, characters, plot? Will the two stories meet?

If so, is the chronology I tried to make is correct? ;
higurashi no naku koro ni
higurashi no naku koro ni kai
higurashi no naku koro ni rei
umineko no naku koro ni
final - extra season.. etc?

I'd be very glad if someone would give me hints, no spoilers please. Thank you very very much ^^

erm, think umineko as a completely different story as higurashi, dont bunch em together. same author , different story.

and yes, wait for higurashi rei for the clarification of miss bernkastel( although its still iffy in the end)

The manga is behind the anime by the way. They are still on Matsuribayashi-hen.

The first time we hear about her is actually at the very beginning of the first arc, Onikakushi-hen. The first thing you read when you click start in the game and the first page of the manga is about her. They simply decided to remove this for the anime. You will learn more about her in Rei.

The main plot of Higurashi ended with Kai. You will learn more about certain characters in Rei and that's about it.

Umineko doesn't have anything to do with Higurashi.

I remember seeing Rika in Umineko posters.. Or someone looking just like her. Or is that the mysterious lady at the end of season 2 o.o?
Anyway, thank you for the answers Orophin! Much appreciated, just exactly the type of thing I wanted ^^!

The person in the Umineko posters is the "mysterious lady".

Well, it does have a few things in common but the story and the world are totally different. Most of the things that are Higurashi related in Umineko are simply references like Battler who is reading a novel called Higurashi no Naku Koro ni or George who is wearing a Tomitake Flash shirt at some point. As for "Rika", I won't answer because that would be a spoiler.

"Umineko doesn't have anything to do with Higurashi."

Yet. Umineko isn't finished yet. One can never say until it is over.

For now they have nothing to do with either other

Doesn't that just help break up the three arcs? OVA 1: first arc (Pool). OVA2-4 Second arc (serious). OVA 5: last arc (Daybreak)

That WOULD make sense, if you didn't have to wait so very long for "what happens next" in Saikoroshi-hen.
