This is likely the only review I will every write on this site, and it's going to be a fairly brief one. The reason for this is that people give this show way too much hate.

First of all, anyone that watches Higurashi for the gore will not particularly like this OVA. But then again, Higurashi is in no way about the gore; it's about the characters and what they go through. And this fact is exactly why I am giving this an 9/10. Over the course of the series, we have all seen just how much suffering the characters have gone through. Don't you read more

Since there are a lot of conflicting viewpoints on this 4 episode OVA, I thought I would just clear things up for those of you who are trying to decide weather or not to watch it:

First, let it be noted that there is no gore what so ever in the OVA; something that Higurashi is infamous for. However, if you were only watching Higurashi for its gore, then you were watching it for the wrong reasons, because it's not a show about mindless blood and gore. Higurashi is and has always been about the journey of the characters,the struggles they have had to go through, read more

Recommendations

Full Metal Panic? was less serious than the Higurashi series but it did have it's suspenseful moments. Both of these series are mostly humor with fan-service... and a tiny bit of plot thrown in for spice.
Both anime are considered comedies based off a serious series celebrating a milestone.

Both series features characters from their respective works and are a funny watch that brings out hilarious comedy to the viewers.
