After Higurashi's success I expected nothing less. The game is pretty awesome, I have a feeling I'm about half-way through now and while I can't say it measures up to Onikakushi-hen up to now it was still very much worth getting. Also I got myself spoiled on a certain part of the otsukaresamakai portion of the game...

Here's a link to the second trailer by the way, which is a lot better than the first.

Somehow this does not surprise me, at all. Anybody think we'll get an anime from this a few years down the road as well?
