Hey /a/, because of slowpoke capped downloading I'm really behind with anime. I've watched the first episode of this and I thought it was OK. My question is, will I start loving it and if so, when?

How are we supposed to know? Keep watching and you'll find out.

First arc is 4 eps. Drop it after that if you don't like it
>>
How about you go watch it and form your own fucking opinion.

Yare yare daze.
>>
you will go 'wtf just happened?'

I hated the first half of the first season. Eps ~14-20 were alright, the end of the first season was awesome.

Second season was just fucking incredible.

Of course, the only recommendation I've taken so far was Kaiji.

Higurashi started out as the best new horror anime in ages. Then it turned into a shitty infodump anime where people do boring shit like hold village meetings and arrange peaceful protests for entire episodes.

Where - is - the - fucking - GORE? Where is the suspense and paranoia? You faggots had it right in the first few arcs of the first season when you showed a horrible murder and then showed all the events that lead to it. That's what you have done in every arc of every season, that formula was solid fucking gold. Why did you have to fuck it all up?

It was all buildup for the feel-good ending.

Higurashi started out really strong - I went back recently and was amazed by how much I liked those first episodes - but longer it went on, the less interesting it became: less willing to hurt the characters and make the viewer squirm, and less intent on preserving the air of mystery and suspense. The second season was especially bad for me, because it felt like an endless, slow infodump where not only was there nothing truly interesting happening, but it actually made the FIRST season less interesting by giving unexciting, undramatic explanations and recaps for its events.

I truly feel that Higurashi was a major disappointment as a series. It was relatively competently done as a technical accomplishment, but it promised so much and delivered so little. Shit was INTENSE at the beginning, really grabbed you by the balls, but it just lost its oomph the further it went, slowly deflated to nothingness when it should have stayed intense and finally gone out with a massive bang.

Watch the first 4 eps and stop, just pretend it's a 4 part oav or something.

Trust me, you'll be happier that way.

if you in it for the horror and the gore, prepare to slowly sink into disappointment

if the "groundhog day" plot kept you interested in finding out what the fuck is going on, then you gonna like it

It's like a grindfest mmo.
