Well this was plenty of fun to watch . Really does fit as the first of the OVA episodes. Just a lot of silliness and something you have to just sit and enjoy. The battle for Keiichi's swimming trunks reached a ridiculous level.

Have to give Rika credit since she went all out for this. Pulling Hanyuu into it with bribes and again getting the Angel-Mort fanclub involved with bribes. The dark side got to have a blast with this situation.

Might as well laugh now since the preview hit home how serious things are going to get.

That was quite an enjoyable episode. There was a lot of fan service but the funny moments like Tommy stopping a bullet with his bare chest () more than make up for it. I also liked the fact that they animated some of the things they left out in the first two seasons of the anime like Chie's curry, the Soul Brothers and Hanyuu freezing time.

Rika vs Rena huh ?
Unless they decide to change the original script, Saikoroshi-hen won't be scary at all. The preview can be misleading for those who didn't play the game.

Tommy stopping the bullet has to be one of the best scenes I've ever seen in anime.
As a Type-Moon fan who's new to Higurashi, seeing Chie being blatantly like Ciel surprised me, but it seems like it's on purpose, so....
A fun episode all around, even if they seemed to try to force the cuteness/moe at some parts. Cute Rena is cute. 8/10

Well, Ryukishi is a big fan of TypeMoon and asked them if he could make a character as a cameo or so. Originally, Chie was shown from the very start with a uncanny love for curry and using fork/knives or even Lecture T squares like the black keys...

But obviously, the anime series just skipped the detail. That said they still put a "special thanks" to TM in the credits, be it in Higurashi 1st and Kai.

see daybreak for more blatant references

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there's going to be five of these OVA episodes.

Fanservice ep. Suitably over-the-top, which was what made it entertaining. Not really too much to comment on otherwise.

If you are going to do a one off fanservice episode to a normally serious show, this is certainly the way to do it. A fun and over the top romp with the characters we love. I give it a solid 9 out of 10 as it played out better than I was expecting and it brought me to the lulz pretty good several times. The new art style also looks quite nice.

Bring on Saikoroshi-hen!

Got some epic lulz out of this..the Takano and Chie appearances especially. ANd When Keiichi shamelessly admits to being a lolicon. :P

LOL @ Ciel
Takanos scene was a homage to Kohaku?

I hope episode 2 will have less fanservice and more plot!
They could animate Jesus arc and stuff

watched the first ep last night. Lol, After the girls recruit Takano & so on, I thought I was watching Higurashi Daybreak the animation, since they reveal their weapons like in Daybreak/Kai....

Considering the fifth OVA is suppose to be Daybreak...I expect more weapons/comedy at that point.

Voted Perfect 10.

So nice to see Keichi, Rena, Rika, Mion, Satoko and the rest the cast again.
A really fun episode, plenty of Higurashi style fun. One needs to have watched Higurashi Kai in order to understand most of the jokes though.

*eagerly waiting for the next episode

I rather liked it for what it was--if nothing else it was entertaining. Even the new art style didn't phase me really. The only negative thing to me was
Spoiler for spoiler:
. I've mixed feeling about the rest, I'd love to see more Higurashi beyond just four more ovas, but only if they were as good plot wise as the story--it's hard to let go of an amazing show.

Finally found an english sub of Rei OVA #1 that I could download, and it was, of course, awesome.
