Against our hopes the next Higurashi series will be only an OVA called "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei"
The OVA is based on the fangame wich has the same name released back in december 2006.
The info comes from the June issue of Megami Magazine.

This was indeed a disappointment.

I hope it doesn't deal with the endless June concept again; it's become old. I would rather them adapt an arc from the manga.

As long as there is moar

Jun 28, 2008 12:54 AM by Cero That's a disappointment. I was looking forward to this 'season' ever since it was announced after Kai ended. But, at least we get an OVA. It's not that bad.

Ugh, why? ;O; *sigh* I guess it's okay since we're getting an OVA at least...

Yeah it is better then nothing, I would hate to see a new season that ened up to be horrible so in some ways it is good.

I think it was a good decision to make only ova instead of a whole new season, because the show doesn't have go on anymore. I was satisfied with the end

I was looking forward to an another season, i was dissipointed, but i cannot w8to see the OVAs.

Few releases of OVA (3-5) should be appropriate for Higurashi Rei since it only has 1 'serious' arc that I've been waiting to be animated: Saikoroshi-hen.

I'm a bit disappointed they won't animate Higurashi Matsuri since many people believe Miotsukushi-hen is the true ending of the Higurashi world..

I would also wish that they produce the TRUE END, rather than the HAPPY END in the 2nd season.

yes, I love the 2nd season more than the first but the ending was bleh =(
I mean (2nd season ending spoiler):

so anyway, Im sad because it seems final... but *still has hopes* ;-;

May 5, 2008 5:56 PM by Richard_Omega

Argh... an OVA...Ohwell, I still can't wait.

The ending of season 2 was not complete as Shion did not get to be with Satoshi.

I still thinks theres alot more that can be explored in Higurashi's world. Hopefully it won't end after the next OVA =(
