Well if I was throw again to that loop after everything it went throught I would be pissed for a while too. She is just seeing how things are or if there changes in this fragment and there is still 21 chapters to go so don't expect her to win at the first chance.

Remember that not every world is suitable for happy ending. In Matsuribayashi-hen, everything is close to perfect and gave a Rika a good chance to overcome her fate. This world....maybe not. Rika might decide to abandon it and wait for a better world.

In GOU the main antagonist might not even the same person.

Pretty sure every world could lead to a happy end if done right. The issue is just that it took her 96 times longer than Battler to figure out the rules of the gameboard.

Battler actually played his boards to the last bit, while Rikka basically just stops whenever it looks like it's a bad gameboard and then savescums up to whatever she did last.

It's a sequel that was initially disguised as a remake. Rika died as a teen and was sent back to June 1983 again. Current arc borrows heavily from the original first arc but has differences, some of them with major implications.

thank you for the reply, thats a bit of a spoiler but given i havent yet seen the series its to be expected. its not like the previous series was just a bunch of different scenarios of the same problem. se1 was a bit repetitive but se2 really tied it all in very well

it shouldnt be a problem for me. im not a fan of "enhanced"versions or one that is 90% the same previous series with a few new scenes added, RE zero im looking at you...

I'd say it's down to a couple of things why the original is still better than the new one (although the new one is still great):

1. The original DEEN animation was more subdued, while the new animation has more saturated colors, so the original animation fit better on the setting. Not to mention all those birds that lose their shit and fly away after she screams.

2. Nakahara Mai's voice strained a bit on the new delivery, which made the DA sound higher pitched than the USO. The original delivery had more consistency in delivery.

3. Errr original bias I guess?

The live action movie ( not the tv series ) shows how to really botch that line.

IMHO the old "USODA" is like a sudden punch to the face. It just completely knocks you out of left field when you least expect it.

On the other hand I feel like the new show has me feeling chills down my spine right from the get go which is why the "Usoda" feels like it lacks punch: it does, it lacks that sudden spike of tension from the original show.

The complete and sudden lack of background sound on the new scene ups the tension in a way that the music on the Deen adaptation just didn't do quite as good of a job in the old days. On the other hand, like others mentioned, the more subdued art style from the original show is in itself more conductive to building ongoing tension. All of these small changes in the surrounding tone of the scene and a different take on the line end up with the difference in effect.

But no arguments from me, that original "Usoda" line is punchy like few others can. I'm writing this a good minute or two after watching the clip and I still feel my heart rate elevated from the suddenness of the line on the original show. 10/10 delivery for that line.

The 7 Stakes of Purgatory would agree.

The only things that are better at the new one is the smaller pupils and rena's expressions. Other than that it's too cartoony, even for an anime.

Well, so far it is 90% the same. But the 10% imply we'll get new content at some point. Probably as soon as next episode.

At the beginning of ep.2, I almost didn't notice that Rika woke up as Middle/High schoolgirl and changed back to the kid form after she talked with Hanyu.

.....................

Spoiler for Ep.4:

I was right, this episode was pretty much completely new. I'm putting it under spoiler tags, just in case (includes spoilers from the original anime):

Spoiler for episode 4:
