Its been a while since the Higurashi series has really kicked off, with the first two seasons evoking a thrill and suspension that defined its ability to grasp the audience and make us understand the story through multiple arcs. Granted that "Kira" was terrible, but apart from that, the series has generally been sublime.

Now that Higurashi no Naku koro ni Kaku has been announced though, any expectations? For me its frankly just praying they dont do another fanservice season again and go back to basics, helping us relive the feelings we perceived as the anime with its brutally efficient soundtrack manipulating our emotional complexes.

I'm excited. Even though I am quite satisfied with the ending of Kai (not the ovas, they don't exist!) and I thought 50 eps was enough. However, since this is a spinoff apparently and it has Rena :) then that's great. And I didn't read any of the source material so I don't know what to expect, I'm also hoping it's nothing like the ovas.

The actual plot arc of Rei isn't bad. I thought it capped off the story nicely. Just skip the first and last episodes and you got a pretty decent OVA.

I'm still cautious about this one. Could go either way for me.

Yeah, it was still a fairly short arc though which could've been fleshed out more, but thats just me.

As long as it's like the first season. I won't even be pissed if it turns out to be fanservice shit, because it wouldn't be surprising...

I'm very hyper to hear about another Higurashi coming! XD

I'm expecting this not to be another Kira, but somewhat related to Kai/Rei.

Oh, ok. Because you were really vague about it.
Kira is actually terrible.

Apparently, this is going to be a movie as the novel is only 40 pages long.
Strange, I always thought it would be impossible to make a Higurashi anime movie.

I bet they are only making this as a way to say sorry for how crappy Kira was.
And if that is the case then i have no doubt that it is going to awesome.

Can't wait! Read summaries of the novel and it sounds really awesome!

Unpopular opinion: I actually liked Kira especially the last episode. That was adorable.

Well, i hope this "season" it is not another Kira. I enjoyed a lot Higurashi, but that fanservice was terrible...
I dont know what to expect from Kaku, but i hope this time they will recover the horror and mistery from previous editions.

What's the point when the story is already finished? They should stop milking the franchise so much.

I'm pretty stoked! I haven't seen any Higurashi-related anime in a long while.
Hopefully it'll be good.
