i thought mion/shion were lieing about the twin thhing too

Luna Mikazuki
08-03-2009, 11:57 PM
Well they have been known to switch places in the past.

They switched places before they were tattooed so Mion is actually Shion. And Shiom is actually Mion.

Higurashi... it wasn't good enough for me to want to watch the second season, "Higurashi ... Kai", lets put it that way. It was an interesting plot at the beginning, but became way too confusing to really enjoy. I didn't like the way the arcs were set up (some were really boring, too) and it really didn't help that each arc didn't have much to do with the last one, adding to confusion.
They call it a "murder mystery" series but I call it a very poorly thought-out attempt at a bloodbath. =/ If the plot was cleared up (made WAY less confusing) then I would like it a lot more!

And thats your opinion.

I really enjoy it. I can't wait to watch the second season.

Lol...so whats it about?

nano

Lol...so whats it about?

Um... wow, it's really really hard to explain, mostly because it doesn't make any sense in the first place. It's basically about this kid named Keiichi who moves to a countryside town called Hinamizawa. He soon makes a few friends, and learns about the village's Watanagashi Festival that takes place every year in honor of the dead; however, on the night of each annual Festival, one person is always found mysteriously mudered and another person disapears. Keiichi starts to realize that his friends are all connected to the murders in some way, and that the village isn't really what it seems.
It's very hard to explain... the plot changes a lot for a reason you'll find out soon enough if you watch it. The first epiode will give you a good idea of what the series is about, anyways.

I'd only reccomend it because most of my friends seem to enjoy it (I actually don't know anybody who doesn't like it, although I'm not involved in the fandom.) But I'm warning you, some parts are disturbing, most parts are boring, and the whole thing is so confusing you won't be able to stand it. Believe me. You can try to understand it all you want but it will never make sense.

Yeah, it pretty much is, but that's the plot for the 1st arc which should suffice :D


i cant find it english dubbed.

Taker369, I had a whole list of links to the dubbed episodes for you, but I just realized it's against the rules to provide them on this site =/ I'm sorry, all I can say is that if you do a google search for "Higurashi english dub episode __" you will find it. Try youtube, too.

I am warning you though, Higurashi is infamous for the horrible english dub. Even the softest dub critics can't stand it. I really reccomend you watch it subbed, the dub totally ruins the whole eerie feeling.

The dub is horrible~ Japanese rocks.

I really love the series, the manga the anime, and of course, the original games. (which I don't have, but I've seen them)

Right now I'm waiting to see how they're going to do "Daybreak" (it's coming... august 21) I love that story (I even have the game, um... imported...)

First season (question arcs) was good, second season (answer arcs, called Kai) was actually.... surprising.... I expected the thing behind it all to be a person... not... what it was (not telling you.) and the ending was sweet.

All the DS and Playstation and other manga add more chapters, that, while it's useful to add more depth, it just....kinda gets confusing for me.


Rei is great, lol'd at first episode, and the "Dice-Killing" chapter was.... actually, I don't know. Rika....

Overall, the series is actually worth your time watching. It has a nice storyline, and it has a good depth.

(note: Just want to say that the question arcs are all different stories on the same thing..... not like they all are sequels or prequels or whatever... just to whoever's new to this.)

And yeah. That's my review on Higurashi no naku koro ni.

One thing that really creeped me out about the series (well, the game) was Taraimawashi-hen. It's a game-only arc in which Keiichi decides to ignore the dark mysteries in Hinamizawa and live a happy life with his friends. This leads to Shion going insane and murdering everyone. The really creepy thing? This is a punishment because you tried to avoid the dark secrets.

You have to watch season two. That's when they answer all the questions from season one.

My favorite was Ni because Kai and I think Rei (It's been a while) focused to much on Rika in my opinion.

Maikeru D. Shinigami
05-29-2011, 10:50 PM
Ni will probably be my favorite too, cause I still don't know what's going on. I do really like Rika though (my favorite), so I think I'll be happy with the next seasons.

Maikeru D. Shinigami
05-31-2011, 09:12 AM
Finished Kai, it was a nice ending and all.

I still like Ni more, it was more sadistic. Though I liked the Rika focus.

I don't see what's so scary about this though. It seemed pretty tame to me.
I also don't understand how it can be said that it was more bloody than Elfen Lied.

All in all, it was great.
