And we're back to the 'what the hell is happening?'. It's finally starting to feel like Higurashi again.

I read up on all the arcs from the games, that's what it said

If this is true, I just lost a lot of respect for Higurashi.

This was a really interesting episode. It evidently served mostly to present information about the world Rika is in, but it made it was some pretty good build-up for what is to come. I have high expectations for this arc

Seems like Rika found herself in the most boring world.
Well, that doesn't mean this episode was boring. It was actually pretty nice. WTF's going on? :3

At least it got a bit creepy (Rena's scary face ftw! ^^).....the first episode made me almost cry, because of otaku-pleasing moe shit (What the hell with "Keichii's little brother?!").... hope it'll get a bit more violent in the next eps.....

whoa, I was missing all that mindscrew! xD but seriously, I'm really confused on this one, lots of strange stuff I wasn't expecting. Also, Rena face FTW! her face was ok, what scared me was her voice xP

I was sad when that truck came in, really. All those months watching the 1st and 2nd seasons, getting to know the story, and now some random truck kills her owo.

Comments made while watching:

-"Ill grind your eyelids off with a file." Considering some of the ways people have died in this series...that almost isnt funny.

-Girls stop sexually harassing Keiichi.

-Ok so this IS a sequel to season 2 then, ignore the related comments I made in my episode 1 post.

-Oh no Rika is trying to kill people again.

-Seems I may have been wrong as well about this being a comedy anime based on watching the first episode...as I said in the last two seasons..."Shit has hit the fan."

-Rika's got to get used to dying having consequences.

-Wait she didnt get hit by a truck did she...oh shit....

-So she has to relive that hell again...ok Satoko for the love of God...stay away from your dad.

-Yeah being hit by a baseball is the least of her worries now.

-No im not going to the clinic...the creepy lady is there!

-"Getting a head injury is quite scary." Lady you have NO idea.

-Oh yeah I forgot...each time she goes back something is different.

-"I heard he was a great doctor." Probably because he didnt try to murder his patients.

-No I dont EVER want a nurse like that to work here.

-So...maybe Rika got lucky and ended up in a time when nobody is trying to kill her...somehow im not quite ready to embrace that idea...

-Screw Keiichi...Shion isnt here either...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

-They could easily turn this episode into an infomercial about why its a good idea to follow basic bicycle safety rules...I mean this all could have been prevented if she listened to the kami and slowed down.

-"Rena I leave you to escort Rika-chan home." Yeah and please try not to kill her on the way.

-So you mean to tell me that all the problems of the first two seasons could have been prevented if they just build the damn dam?!?

-Oh yeah I remember Oyashiro-sama...yay!

-OK...apparently Rena has a problem with the words "mutilated corpse incident."

-"What am I supposed to do in this world. Somebody tell me." Um...how about not die.

Post Episode Comments:

So it seems like my first impression based on episode 1 about this being a comedy spin off of the first two seasons with no relationship to the original plot was way off. Instead it seems like everything is all nice and fine in this new world...yeah like im gonna buy that. Money says Rena knows something (its obvious). Look forward to episode 3.

Yes! That's more like the Higurashi I remember. Interesting approach to the initial story. Rena was awesome again. =D

Looking forward to the next episode.

If I were given that ending or, 'rocks fall, everyone dies', I'd choose the latter.

I think Rika diead in that accident and the new world lacks only one thing... the Hinamizawa-syndrome...
After all, the dam building lasted due to agression, Satoko's family was torn apart from that, Takano's father was researching it, Reina's family problems were of that as well...

If you think about it, it is almost 100% sure that that's the only part, which they took out...

Meaning the only person left alone will be Rika

Oh snap, no Takano, no Irie, no Keiichi, no Dam war, no Oyashiro-sama's curse, no Hinamizawa syndrome, Satoko and Rika are not friends, Satoshi is still around, Reina never changed her name, Tokyo never conducted research, its a year after everything that was supposed to happen happened (but it never happened!!!)

Yet the mutilated corpse incident raises a stir with Reina when mentioned...

Also it looks like Rika's parents are still around too. I thought I noticed that in the preview. This should be an interesting series, to be continued over summer break!

That's because in this world, satoshi didn't go crazy from the Hinamizawa-syndrome, thus he wasn't taken away by Takano (who in the first place wasn't there to take him away)...

About that covers it, I think...

Interesting episode with a really strange world. Keiichi, Takano, Okonogi and Irie are not there, Satoshi is there, Satoko and Rika are not friends, the dam is built, Rena is Reina... wtf. Finally when Rika found her peace in Matsuribayashi-hen, she is confronted with that. Re(i)na's Hinamizawa snydrome moment at the end was scaa~ry, it had much more impact on me than in the other episodes of Higurashi. I find it also kind of disturbing that Hanyuu did not appear. Perhaps because the people even believe less in Oyashiro-sama since the chain of murders did not happen and it weakend her even more?

Why did I have to just click this, why?

This better turn out to be an anti-spoiler.
And I'd better start learning not be idiotic enough to read spoilers.
