Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

Post by JJW009 » Fri Dec 28, 2007 8:22 pm

Anyone seen this?



I finished the first 26 episodes yesterday; and it took a little bit of digesting! I now think I understand it; and for anyone who hasn't watched it yet I have one suggestion. Pay attention to the chapter titles because they really help!



I enjoyed it anyway. The series is continued as "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai" which promises to provide further answers. This started as a game, but the anime has extra chapters. It's not available to buy - probably ever, so you'll have to resort to fansubs.



There is also supposed to be a special called "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Gaiden Nekogoroshi-hen" but I'll be buggered* if I can find a copy. It was a limited edition only available to those that bought the DVDs in Japan.



There's also a third season to be aired next year; but I guess we'll have to wait <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo-->



There's also a live-action movie. I'm not usually big on live action, but it rather depends on who plays who. I am after all, a huge pervert above all else <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo-->







*it's on Animesuki listed as the special. D'oh!

I'm seeding it now if anyone wants... </div>

Damn it. Still downloading it. Had to stop with Kai as the series started referencing back to 1st series at around ep 6.





Also, you know channel 4 been showing Ghibli films in the morning? Tis awesome. </div>

I've watched the first series, the special, and now I'm upto ep. 10 of Kai.



It gets really good <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>

I spent a lot of season one being quite confused. It all makes sense now though <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo-->



I've watched it all the way through now. I found the ending quite satisfactory, and I love the silly little previews in Kei. </div>
