There's only one thing I'm afraid of; what if season 3's gonna be voiced by different people?
With the exception of a small number of roles on the drama cds all the Higurashi games, cds and anime have all had the same voice cast. I doubt they'd change that.

Tough I think Kai misses a lot of what I foud so great about Season one it's still great news

I fear the worst for what they're tought upfr a plot is time but I'll be looking forward to it
Since most of the story has already been told the most likely course for season 3 to take is animating the more Season 1-esque extra chapters from Rei, Matsuri and the manga.

Its not all just about the killer lolis, lol. I hope they add to the story well instead of just extending it cuz the story of kai was awesome so they better not ruin it with some half assed attempt of a third season!

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay~! Moar Higurashi! Moar Higurashi means moar psycho lolis and blood! 8D Well, I hope so. Kai has no scenes of psycho lolis. But who cares? Higurashi~ ^3^

this was indeed unexpected, i would have thought that higurashi was going to end with ep 24 of kai... anyways, its good to know that this is coming out in 2008 as well... yay

there's mawr? *baffled*

I just hope that they do a better job than what they did with Kai. Kai was rather lackluster compared to the 1st season.
