Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai, Kurozuka Recommendations
For both of these anime, time plays an important factor in developing the story, more so than we might originally think. Redundancy within the shows hints at the importance of time. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai is more modern and Kurozuka is much less so. Supernatural ideologies are also important for the plots of each.
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai's art style and school atmosphere make it less thought provoking and easier to relate to than Kurozuka. Kurozuka is less-straightforward, but has more action, more plot twists and more detailed art.
