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.

Fucking adorable Rena scared the crap out of me with my volume all loud. I didn't expect Higurashi to scare me anymore since I saw it back when I was younger, but I was proven wrong.

This is interesting indeed, ironically the peaceful world is just wrong as well. Rika was so adorable as usual, I love it when speaks in her older form. More more more!

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Man, a Hinamizawa without Irie, Takano and Keiichi? What a boring place! Also, an incredibly submissive Hinamizawa.

So when Rena turned around all murderous, was that an illusion or real? oooh, interesting.

Interesting turn of event, so Rika is now in a completely different version of Hinamizawa without all the freaky events.

Wonder how/if she will be able to get back.

Well this episode was weird... :/
I was expecting more fan service, but this is better. Poor Rika she is really having rough time... Well I hope it gets cleared out in next episode, I don't want to see her be more in paranoia. This world where nothing happens could be shocking for any of us if we know just one dangerous life we had, but Rika experienced it thousands of times, so I kinda feel her pain too... TT.TT
As for Reina, man she freaked me out...

I feel so bad for Rika. She finally was happy in Matsuribayashi-hen, but now she's in a new world, and has to figure everything out. But im not sure if that's where this third season left off, cause in the first episode, they were hanging out with Takano, which is strange.. or was that episode just a filler?

TadloS said:
Rika died really stupidly, traffic accident...


I agree. It just seemed kind of lame how that happened, but i guess they couldn't make up any other decent way for her to die and appear in a new world ^_^
She should have been more careful. Just because the battle thingy was over, and she could be happy, doesn't mean she shouldn't still be aware of her surroundings.

Plus, im disappointed.. wheres hanyuu??!?! >:(

I liked this episode, rena's creepy face out of nowhere after speaking so casually and nicely had impact.. What an idiot rika, after working sooooo hard you just had to go get killed by a truck =.=U.. I love higurashi <3 i wish there was more... ahwell i hope ookami kakushi is just as good. Umineko was cool but it wasnt the same thing as higurashi if you know what i mean..

After struggling so hard to live in Kai, she died in a freaking accident here?! Ah the cruelties of fate.

I was startled by Rena's reaction to the mutilated corpse incident. Maybe it's a hint.

and HOW THE HELL they agreed to this dike ? and yeah, it seem to have no true-friends for Rika now....

omg....this girl can't stay alive for **** O.o

when you go through this infinite nightmare and manage to cet out of this crazy loop,at least walk on your god damn lane when you're riding a bike O.o

this was plain dumb,and it annoyed the hell out of me xD

i fail to see wth s so perfect about this world,there's no keiichi,no irie,okonogi :(,everything will be flooded in a year,rika looks lonely like hell,and ofcourse she doesn't get along with satoko :(

i hate this world,sorry :

5/5 for the interesting concept though :)...although i am very pissed that rika has to go through her loop again :(

Satoko and Rika not being friends is odd.

This is definitely an interesting plot-line to follow, what with the fact the dam is actually going to built. I find it weird we haven't seen Hanyuu yet but I assume that has something to do with this alternative world Rika finds herself in.

yay suspense arc

Ironic how as soon as Rika gets cocky, she gets hit by a car and everything resets.
hmm the prospect of a different world is certainly interesting
I wonder what that last bit meant, where "Reina" gets all alarmed
