Okay this is my first review :)

Being a big fan of the Higurashi series I was excited to find out that a new adaptation of the story was being released. Needless to say i didn't have any hopes or expectations as most of the questions were answered (Watch Higurashi no Naku Koroni Kai to find out) other than wanting to see my favourite cast of characters set off onto a new adventure.

......also just in case

My previous review on Nekogoroshi-hen was a bit messed up (people couldn't read all of it), so here goes try no. 2

For those of you who don't know Higurashi this review will be probably useless, since it's kinda aimed at people who already know it.

This special opens with Maebara and co. in the school on yet another club session. This time they're playing poker and betting large amounts of money. Unfortunately for our hero, halfway through the game he loses all of his money. But of course it's Keiichi we're talking about so instead of money he bets himself. If a loser, he promises the read more

I am a massive fan of Higurashi (I've watched all the anime and am making my way through the manga) so when I found this I became unnaturally excited.

[Warning: May contain SPOILERS]

Story: I wasn't sure where this came in the chronology of the original series, kai and rei so I was watching it completely out of interest (but it did have the same creepy feel as the first season and the same music - which is a massive plus in its favour). There isn't much to the story. In true Higurashi style, the first section of the episode is happy and amusing and slowly read more

This side story appears to take place some time during season 1, before Kai. This episode is essentially a filler, but a good filler.

Story (7):The cast of our usual lovable characters sit around and try to figure out another local mystery. The mystery has nothing to do with the overall plot. But if you watch this before Kai (which most of us didn't), it does provide good foreshadowing. That said, it doesn't really advance the plot at all besides that.

Art (7): It has the same art style as Rei, which can be distracting (since Rei is after both the first season and Kai). Regardless, read more
