Yeah, not too much happening, however I get the feeling that this little bit of backstory may be important at some point later on in the series.



Hopefully.

Hahah! You call it gratuitous Mion fanservice eh?

Well, the ghost there and the men on the white van has the same clothes, I wonder what's the meaning of it. Well, there's really no point here, since almost all the answers is in Kai.

It was alright. The first part was kinda' funny, but the episode itself wasn't very entertaining.

Does anyone know how I can get this? AFAIK you need to collect vouchers from the DVDs of the first series. Would I be able to get them from yesasia.com? And will there be a time limit as to when you can use them? Because I can't afford to get the whole set all at once. (£40 for 3 episodes is a lot of money)

edit - Before anyone says, no I don't want to download it. I want to get the legal DVD because this anime is awesome :p

Eh, nothing too special. I don't really think any of this is going to be important in the scheme of things. It was just a ghost story and some cosplay.

Pretty boring...I don't understand where they get the name "Cat Killing Chapter" though O_o; After watching KAI, we really dont need to really understand this part...although still quite interesting about the ghost part. Oh and one question that I may have missed information on...
Bleed for me.

Curiosity killed the cat. This idiom is also used in Japanese. You have to remember that Mion has a twin sister as well.

Fun episode, seems a bit out of place in the first series, it 'felt' a lot more like an episode of Higurashi~Kai

Other than the cosplaying, and funny intro content, this special wasn't very good.

What Duet said.
But i doubt that was Shion. Maybe the production team just screwed up? xD

Hmm . . . Watched this not too long ago.

The "Hole" story was pretty interesting. And the cosplay made me giggle.

Though, I'm not sure how Nekogoroshi ties with the actual Higurashi unless it has to do with the "curse".


All in all, good special, but kind of disappointing in a way.

Hey I've noticed a couple of people looking for this. Here is a jump to the WinD copy.

In the future use usniff.com for torrent searching...

In response to the question on the title, there's another little snippet after the credits end that explain it. Pretty funny in my opinion, hehe. Anyway, check AniLinkz for their copy of the episode; they've got the extra scene after the credits.

I'm glad that no cat got actually killed.

Fine episode, nothing exceptional, but enjoyable. Keii-chan in a maid suit was the best thing ever.

Good special. I liked the haunted quarry story. It was really interesting. Too bad it was never mentioned in the main story, so it'll remain a mystery. =P

And Mion was looking good BTW! XD

7/10 ^_^

(This was very nostalgic... I miss Higurashi... -_- )

I personally never enjoyed these "batsu-game" sequences and thought it detracts from the creepy and haunting mood of the series that drew me to it in the first place. Though, I did enjoy the "hole" mystery and their incorporation of the music and light effects that added to the haunting atmosphere while the girls were narrating it.

So, serious question. If Mion is strutting around all that time in a bathing suit, where's her tattoo?

Although, I noticed it never showed her back fully (her hair was always covering part of it) but shouldnt we have been able to see at least some of it?

EDIT: I missed the post earlier where someone mentioned it, and I doubt it was Shion as well. Then again, her hair was covering most of her back, so that could be why we didnt see it.

I heard that that was a mistake made by the producers, but I'm not 100% sure. :|

Even so, I seriously doubt that it was Shion. That would be pointless and meaningless. :P

Haaah. Wat.
Oh well, "nipaa~".
And also, what I really love, is that the animation is so much better than in the original series~
And due to the lack of Shion, I'll just have to do with Mion <3

Boring..Even if i wanted to be scared by the "ghost" story, with Keiichi in a dress i couldn't..
Anyway, it seems like this place has some links with the curse or the watanagashi deaths..

It wasn't a bad episode, but it certainly wasn't as good as I was expecting. It was a bit of a let down because there was so much build up, but then they decided not to go in the end.

I was enjoying the gorgeous new animation quality, getting drawn into the story of the abandoned quarry it when it occurred to me how I might wanna mouse over the WMP window and see the duration of this thing. It was almost over. What? The pacing was kinda thorough and slow so I didn't expect any great mystery to be resolved but this was basically just teasing. Oh well, still enjoyed it, and it is only a special so...can't complain.

The first half was funny with the game and cosplay but the story was a little boring, even if it is to foreshadow some events later on.

OMG this was amazing! I loved how every1 bet their bodies for their chips... and in the end NO one won?! haha ppl got nose bleeds XD i thought by the "hole" they meant like the hole to wonderland cuz of Keiichi's outfit... i was looking froward to that XP but i guess now... hehe and i liked the end where it actually got to the short special... well it as a great epi!
