Just give me Umineko Chiru already.

I hope this isn't like Kira.


The one sentence description for Higurashi Outbreak I saw sounds like it could go either way.

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.


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.

That's what you get from Deen I guess.


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

So I hear. Eventually curiosity will get the best of me and I'll check them out.

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"

I'd rather have a different studio redo the original series.

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.

Hopefully, if there is a new season, it won't have "improved" graphics again.

Kai had better graphics than the first, but it felt off. Rena's hair felt more normal in the first.

*sighs* a new Higurashi anime again? Kira was a disappointment, and they are going to go for Higurashi again? Just make an anime adaptation of Umineko Chiru. I did read the VN already, but I want to see it as an anime. Although, I hope they would be more faithful to the original material.

YES!! finally something in 2013 to look forward to. Though I was quite satisfied with how it ended in Kai.
Never read the source material of Higurashi, so I don't care if it's still by Deen. I thought they did a good job. I just hope it's a tv series and that it's not like Kira or even Rei...

I haven't seen the Higurashi OVA's yet and as I'm reading your comment guys, I most probably won't anytime soon. But I loved the original series, so I appreciate that we get a new project. Hope it's gonna be good.

I thought Kira was supposed to be something analogous to TYPE-MOON's Carnival Phantasm, a parody of the franchise itself - not a sequel or side story. So it wasn't really that bad for me since I knew what to expect.

Anyway, since the main story of Higurashi is supposed to be over already, I wonder what is it they're planning to animate aside from side stories. One more sequel is likely out of the question.

I don't see why any other studio would animate a side story of an already existing anime
