Is Umineko Chiru the answer arcs for Umineko no Naku Koro ni? Because if it is, I second that. I want to know what happened, god dammit.

as if we need any more Higurashi material - they've already driven this series into garbage.

As long as it ain't by DEEN, or like Higurashi Kira, I approve. They have a lot to touch up on and a lot to make a new.

I have high hopes for this. Then again, that's why I submitted it.

Although I've been pretty disappointed since the first season of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (which I absolutely love and hold in high regard), I admit I am looking forward to this... I just hope it's better than Kira. As others have said, what I really want is Umineko no Naku Koro ni Chiru to be animated! xD

Been waiting for this since it was posted on ANN.

It's not that I don't like the comedy aspect of Higurashi... it's just I want more mystery and action :D
It's an anime, right?

I'm asking the same question. If it's an OVA, then I won't be expecting much.

I'll watch it since it's focused on Rena. And yes, I really hope DEEN won't be producing this spin-off.

Well, you could always just read the (much better) visual novels to get the Chiru story lines. At this point who knows if Chiru will ever get animated. The VN's are time sinks, though.

It wasn't announced as an OVA, there's not even a PV yet, and it may not even be by DEEN.

Hold on a sec...there's people who actually want a second season of umineko?! I thought everyone hated the first season, I mean I didn't but I am pretty sure everyone else did. Hell I appreciated that they even tried to adapt something so impossible to adapt as umineko. I really don't think we will ever see season two. The budget needed for the last arc of Chiru is enough to give animators a heart attack.

Honestly I hope this is a remake of higurashi with better animation. Hell keep the voice recording, music, storyboards of the old the exactly the same and just spend the budget on the animation. You could call it "Perfecting higurashi"

God dammit

If this is anything like Rei or Kira with it's stupid fanservice moe shit I'm gonna freak out.

The only good seasons were 1 and 2. The smaller OVA series were utter crap and ruined the image that is 'Higurashi'

If it isn't in the same style as the original 2 seasons I might not even bother. I adore Higurashi but there's only so much butchering a person can take to an excellent series.

Higurashi and Higurashi Kai were absolutely BRILLIANT anime.

If this new project is like those, then I'm all for it.

If it's like KIRA, then just forget it!

This. Though I think the original art has a certain charm and is certainly no where near as bad as the Higurashi VN's art, you can always get the PS2 sprites.

Are you talking about Umineko or Higurashi?
Umineko doesn't have PS2 sprites and the PS3 tweak doesn't exist for Chiru. But yes, you do get used to R07's art, at least his Umineko ones. His early Higurashi ones are just trash.

Yeah, I was talking about the PS3 version. And, the PS3 tweak exists for Chiru but it isn't finished. I don't know when it will be, though, as I haven't really kept up with it.

There is a patch to insert the Ps3 sprites into the first game of umineko. It can also put in the voices, backgrounds and op videos. A patch is being worked on for Chiru as well.

Not sure if I want this or not. I loved the first two seasons, but the OVAs were pretty "meh" and Kira was downright horrible.

What "Adolescence" do you have?
Do you remember "Childhood"?
The irreplaceable one existed there.

Was never really a fan of the series, but I'll probably end up watching it either way. Characters going batshit insane and killing each other is always fun.

But if it's anything like Kira....

They should just adapt some of the arcs in Matsuri and Kizuna. I especially want to see the Miotsukushi-hen arc where everything goes wrong simultaneously and they have to somehow solve all the problems from the other arcs at once.
But oh well I will watch this, hopefully it won't be complete trash like Kira.

Hmm, more Higurashi could be interesting. Preferrably not utter shite like Kira, though. I don't mind Higurashi's comedy and punishment games systems, but Kira just lacked actual humour in favour of banal dialogue and tits for the sake of tits.
