renas explaining was pretty cool. the compare between a flower and a human.
a really deep ep, you shall not wish for a world which doesnt exist, and be happy about the happiness you gain in this world, is what i understood.
so next one is finally the last ep, doesnt looks too serious for me so its probably a joke ep.

I thought dream-endings are forbidden? Isn't that already in the Constitution and the Geneva Conventions as well as in the Bible?

"Thou shalt not have an "it was all a dream" ending."

Oh well, at least it was good, it could have turned out a lot worse.


But it technically was a dream since Hanyuu herself said that she created that dream-world for Rika

Rewatch the last part, please. Hanyuu explained it in detail and it was a dream.

Dream ending? I feel like I was lied to. *sob*

It was nice to see Ouka (and a Bernkastel reference) though. (:

Ehm.. Talk about anticlimatic episode. These OVA episodes have been a real disappoint to me and have done nothing but bore me.

I don't know, maybe it's because I haven't read the manga or played the VN or whatever.

Bah, disappointing episode. I expected a lot of blood. But no, I didn't get even tiny bit.

Anyway, this Rei OVA doesn't live up to all hype that original series earned. But still I'm being a Higurashi tard and will give to this OVA 8/10. Next episode is just random, so I'm rating from early.

Lol, I'm already planning to rewatch Higurashi two seasons.

Well, Rika did admit she is the "Witch of Bernkastel"

Overall this episode was pretty nice. Though I'm gonna re-watch this after the subs are out so I can understand every line 8------D

I'm a bit confused xD was it really a dream? Or was it a dream because Rika choose her original world, and since she's human and can't imagine both worlds the other one was a dream? o.0 did that make sense.. that's what I got from it xD..

For a "it was all a dream" ending, this episode was pretty good, and

;lajkdfl;sd Bernkastel! Good job in getting me psyched again for Umineko in a few days.

Some of you guys are really misunderstanding the ending.

The whole dream thing was Hanyuu's way of dismissing Rika's guilt, and telling her to live as a human, and to stop concerning herself with the alternate worlds.

It was as much a dream as any of the other worlds we've seen.

So all the other worlds were just Hanyuu punishing Rika as well? Cause sheesh, for there to be 100 years of punishment, I just gotta wonder what Rika did to deserve that, other than getting sliced and diced by Takano a billion times.

Dallas ending was meh. How can it be a Higurashi arc if nobody dies?

I did.

Unless the fansubbers screwed it up, it didn't seem to be that way.

It's a dream because as a human she can't properly conceive two separate realities. That was the whole reason behind Hanyu's dismissal, Rena's flower metaphor, and Rika's closing of the episode.

They were very explicit in getting that point across since they spent the whole half of the episode discussing it. Fansubbers didn't screw it up. I think they did a good job.

That point was all fine and well until Hanyuu went and ruined it by saying that she fabricated that world as punishment for Rika.
