I liked the last arc the most. Good way to end the season. I was expecting Keichi to die again lol. Based on the ending scene I believe next arc is about Rika.

"Very cool but you are still going to jail" ~Ooishi, probably
I am confused, more than I was a few episodes ago. I'm assuming the 2nd season explains what's going on but for now my blood is filled with more question marks than maggots.

Oh god, that maggot crawling scene was made squeamish for a moment there. That's so nasty.

That rooftop rival-type fight scene was kinda goofy but I like the parallel between the past Keiichi and the current Reina. Both are sad that they had gone down this path and had to turn on their friends. But, Rena didn't kill her friends. She found the error in her ways. It was like the past Keiichi got the bad ending and the present Reina got the good ending.

Not sure how Reina got off so easy after making such a big threat and attempting to kill others.

The ending though. It seems like every person from the friend group will eventually go through the same cycle of distrust and killing. Something tells me that Rika will play much bigger roles in the sequels and will have a more detailed backstory about her clairvoyance and 'reincarnation' powers. This was one hell of a ride.

There sure are a lot more things hidden about Hinamizawa. Looking forward to the sequels!

Higurashi season 1 is a unique anime, and because of it being extreme, its definitely an enjoyable experience for what it is. 

The "crazy" that this anime has is definitely something else.  So Higurashi and School Days are the two animes that have that "crazy" in them that I have watched.

Thankfully, Higurashi season 1 has an English-Dub to help me get through this anime, since the original Japanese-Dub wasn't for me.

Again, Higurashi is enjoyable anime because of what it brings, due to its extremes.

Managed to wrap it up pretty well. Slow paced series but pretty good.

Mad respect to Keiichi for big-braining the whole situation and using talk no Jutsu on Rena at the end. I was expecting her to succeed and repeat that last loop where everyone gets yeeted, but he really did pull through. 
The dialogue in the fight was fantastic; it really did sound like a lovers' quarrel with those back-and-forth jabs of if I win, then this & and you, if you, then this. 
I feel like he played the whole situation and let her win right at the end to prove his point. 
Big brain play 10/10.

I'm just disappointed that the ending didn't explain how the town went crazy and how everyone was killed, but I guess that's why season 2 exists.

This series is the REAL Yandere Simulator

sure it was kinda tense with the bomb

but once the teen boy defused it the fight with the yandere begins

the fight made me feel nostalgic for the ezpups/kay2036 tail wars/fluffy contest from 2011 (you know before the animation meme community "grew up" and went to hell) (with rukus nata cleaver and the boys bat kinda reminding me of kittens cleaver and banis hammer)

i bet this episode is what inspired the tail wars
which is why when i reality shift to my desired reality if i ever come face to face with a yandere i want it to be just like in this episode

Damned. I was supposed to watch Secret Invasion and this anime all day. There are so many questions and theories in my head right now for both series...

Watch the classics, because there's a reason they become classics

Nothing really was explained in the first season but I really wish that Rena kept her black tracksuit, it was my fav outfit for her.
