Zoicite☆For all I carry are murdered

Higurashi no Naka Koro Ni 1st Season = DONE!

Now on to the second season.

As macabre and somewhat gross as that series somehow is, it's a really really excellent series for the simple reason that even after 26 episodes, not a damn thing is explained. But they are clever that they do this in a way where it still remains interesting and you are still poised on the edge of your seat while you wait to see what happens next.

There was someone whom I didn't like who actually lived and breathed that series, however I picked it up because I wasn't going to let people I disliked ruin potentially good series for me because honestly? That's letting them win.

If you have a strong stomach, I'd definitely recommend this series. However the last three episodes involving Rena almost made me yark, that's saying something. (hint for those who've watched it: it involves gross crawlies..)

I have no favorite pairings for this series, and I don't really have favorite characters. They are all strong in their own right, however if I haven't picked up a favorite character now, I may never. Who knows and who can say.

And even if you are not a moe fangirl, the series takes the stereotype of moe and completely shoots it into hell. After a while you realize that they are moe.. but godawful creepy and it just isn't all that cute and attractive. This series does a good job of tricking you every single time, lulling you into a false sense of security before whacking at your brain with a dull kitchen knife.

Oh yeah, but seriously I have a stomach of steel (or so I thought) but the series is like "ahaha I can make you ALMOST YARK!" and I'm like... "Noooooo"

I love Higurashi so much. It's an amazing series. Then When they Cry series in general is amazing.

Go and watch the second season!

Oh man, you are so right.. well I'm giving myself a nightly break on it just because I finished with the last episode of the first season and that was just very emotionally draining (I must of pulled off seven episodes in a row because I just couldn't stop. So I think that I'm going to go and browse fanart.

Isn't there another 'when they cry series'? like a 'when the seagulls cry or something?

The fanart for the series is also amazing.

Yeah, it's 'When the Seagulls Cry'. The anime isn't that good though, they cut out so much, or rather, they're trying to put too much into one season. The visual novel is absolutely amazing, and I would totally recommend playing it.

Well I will definitely consider it but then I'm finding myself enjoying the Higurashi series. It's very good, they had a real winner on their hands with that one, definitely!

Indeed they did. I had to go and buy the boxset for the first season when it came out, that's how much I love this series.

This sounds relevant to my interests. Can you tell me some more about this?
