I am excited if this is going to be an entire arc or something. If it is one episode it will probably be kind of a lame filler though, I never really cared for the humor in Higurashi.

OVA? I heard it was going to be a series. Oh well, it's nice anyway, though I don't really need any more higurashi.

More DEENgurashi. Not sure if want...

Hope they'll adapt some manga arcs. I'd sell my hair to see Yoigoshi animated.

I wonder if it will be an arc or just silly fanservice. Hoping its the first, since the Higurashi characters are really boring to watch when its trying to be funny.

Best news of the day. Though I hope it doesn't turn out like Rei did and it'll actually be good.

Sounds interesting, I'll be sure to watch it once I watch the rest of the series (been pushing it off for awhile >_<)

Wait...isn't the whole Higurashi series a random filler crap? I mean, this whole concept has an infinite possibilities for producing millions of unrelated arcs, but fanboys would still keep saying there's some extremely clever plot in there.

I'm really looking forward to it! But yeah, hope it's not a repeat of Rei. That was kinda disappointing. Will they be basing it off one of the manga arcs, I wonder... And which one, I wonder....

The first season ist one of my favorite anime and I'm glad they are making more of it. Though it won't be the same anymore. The first one had several wth moments which the sequels didn't quite deliver. And this one most likely, too.

This didn't excite me until I realized it means more Shimamiya Eiko, providing she's well enough.

my god... another series they are trying to drag on further than it should... at this point it should stay dead....
"Forged in darkness with wheat harvested from Hell's half acre. Baked by Beelzabub; slathered with mayonnaise beaten from the evil eggs of dark chickens, force-fed to dogs by the hands of a one-eyed madman. Cheese boiled from the rancid utters of fanged cows. Layered with 666 separate meats from an animal which has maggots for blood."
