Only one month away now until Higurashi S1 1080p BDs are out. Who hype here?
Also, Higurashi thread I guess.
That's why I said I'll probably be getting it. I don't expect it to be a really shitty upscale release, but it's also Sentai which makes me worried. But we don't know how the BD looks yet, so I'd like to still have high hopes for it.
Next year, after they make
Read the VN
Story-wise, they did an alright job hacking shit together. Besides the H-scene replacement, the only part that stood out as weird was the whole Caster capturing Sakura bit.
>Wish I could pretend the season that actually explained anything and wrapped up the series never happened
And the homicidal insanity. That was fun too.
It was shit. Did you enjoy that satoko child services arc taking up a third of the season? Did you enjoy those scooby doo antics? Everything being some silly disease? Some things are better left ambiguous. Everything became so cartoony.

yes I also enjoy the yuri incest porn, if that's any compensation
I'll take a pic when I get home, and if anyone is expecting an insane crisp HD redo, you'll find that it's just an upscale with better sound. Doesn't bother me too much though, cause I love the franchise to death.
Is the anime as good as the VN?
I played up until about halfway through the second episode of the VN and quit because it felt too predictable.
Later, I played through the Umineko VN and really enjoyed it, which made me want to try HIgurashi again. I head that the Umineko anime was shit, is the same true for Higurashi?
The Higurashi anime is more faithful than the Umineko anime, but that's still not saying much. But it does have a great soundtrack, I'll give it that.
There's also a manga version, but I haven't read all of it to properly judge it.
It's literally impossible to predict certain underlying plot points by midway through episode 2, that's like saying Umineko is too predictable because you know Beatrice killed everyone
Yeah, and the sad thing is that I don't really have a clear preference. It's been a long time, so maybe my memory is off, but season 1 had QUALITY, but was more expressive while season 2 was objectively better made, but much more sterile in a sense.
I liked the QUALITY at the time and thought it was just a stylistic choice. Especially since it plays up paranoia and hallucinations, which would make the distorted parts seem intentional.
Higurashi's twist was spoiled by some of the dialogue in Umineko.So you fucked up by finishing Umineko first.
The OP is elder god tier. I'll be downloading the BDs day one, just to see if it looks any better than the 480p upscaled BD version.
Upload the NCOP please based anon.
What the fuck?
Honestly the worst K1, compared to his most based version in Minagoroshi.
He couldn't even protect his friends from Takano's bullet, he let Mion do it.
Still hasn't learned his lesson about being a man and treating Mion like a girl, even if she was the leader.
He really took a backseat in Matsuri, compared to him getting shit done in Minagoroshi..
In her heart she probably wanted him to protect her at that time.
>yfw they decide to dub S2 after all these years
Read the VN faggot.
Also the JP BDs got released last year and it looked like shit because most of DEENs original material was shit quality so there weren't many scenes that really had Full HD or even HD quality.
It didn't look much different from the DVDs.
Don't waste your money.
