season 3? what?
harro? no season 3 for you! SEASON 3 EXTRA!!! YOU PAY NOW!!!
What are the arcs going to be for the thrid season?
Can't fucking wait.
the mion finally goes crazy and rapes keiichi arc
Unless they somehow magically make it interesting again, I'm officially not going to give a shit.
I used to be one of this series's biggest fans, but boy did the fucking second season set me straight on that one.
I fucking hope not.
Sadly, it has been confirmed.
cancer killing /a/, et cetera.
Will they at least return to their roots of psycho murderers?
What's wrong? Entire episodes of people organizing a peaceful protest or holding a village meeting TOO DEEP FOR YOU?
What are you talking about? Higurashi Kai was fine.
Appparantly Season 3 is going to have the PS2 arcs and some original content, so why not? You can never have too much of a good thing.
The last 4 or 5 eps were shit, everything before that was fine.
>Entire episodes of people organizing a peaceful protest
I came aboard for a horror anime, not a fucking "nothing interesting whatsoever happens in the entire goddamn Save Satoko arc" anime.
Then get the fuck back off the train and stop bothering the other passengers who are still enjoying the ride. It was free, wasn't it?
my season 3 > your season 3
I'm just angry because it started out so incredibly good. Season one eps 1-4 and some of the stuff that came immediately after them looked like this would be the best shit ever.
And then it replaced the violence, terror and paranoia with bureaucracy and positive reinforcement. If it had been shit to begin with, I could ignore it.
>BAWWWWW not enough torture porn!
Give me a break, if you actually paid attention to the story, you would realize that Higurashi is drama, mystery, comedy, thriller, AND horror. It has a meaningful story, so if that's too much for you to handle, you can go back to watching Elfen Lied.
Yeah, I was waiting for the "plot is too deep for you/it's not horror" argument. That's what you assholes always fall back on. The problem is, all that means is that you're saying it was only good by accident and it's never going to be good again.
And none of that can ever excuse how shit-dull and slow the second season is. Let's see you fucking try to excuse ENTIRE EPISODES OF ORGANIZING A PROTEST. Go on, try, I fucking dare you.
This...this is true
Broccoli or cauliflower?
Season 3 will probably be starting with Saikiroshi-hen, which is the 'Rika goes crazy' chapter.
I can't give a shit worth for your whining, if you don't like it, don't watch it.
Go baww away,
>And then it replaced the violence, terror and paranoia with bureaucracy and positive reinforcement. If it had been shit to begin with, I could ignore it.
So when everybody was being inflicted with Hinamizawa syndrome and started going berserk without any explanation, it was fine, but once the truth is revealed you just say "Oh wow this is stupid god I hate it when my Mystery stories get solved".That's the entire point, and the reason why real Higurashi fans watched, in addition to seeing the characters we care about stop suffering.
Furthermore, an episode for getting Satoko out of Teppei's control is perfectly reasonable and realistically portrayed scenarios involving abused children, there are kids in reality going through the same thing, and they handled it in a very good manner, since killing Teppei didn't exactly work.
Season 1 were the question arcs, Season 2 were the answer acts. It is very simple and very obvious, so it's your fault for being unable to realize it. The series isn't shitty, your taste just isn't as expensive.
Higurashi doesn't need to be visceral and violent in order to be good, because it is well written and unpredictable for a very long time.
Because the story is well written. If you disagree, you either have no eyes, no brain, or are simply a troll.
Of course. Violence and blood makes everything better.
Look at how much Elfen Lied sold.
That scene was stupid, however it was only a few seconds long so using it to pan the entire series does get rather tiresome.
>season 3? want
fixed the OP
The character development was fine. The new art style was fine. The FUCKING TONING DOWN was not. Replacing the serious atmosphere of the first season with this gimmicky bullshit is anything but good storytelling.
What toning down? Are you retarded enough to forget that Satoko lays traps everywhere? These hills were her playground and she layed traps everywhere.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH A KID OUTWITTING ADULTS IN A KNOWN, MASTERED AND TRAPPED PLACE?
Got a point there. There's no reason why those logs shouldn't have knocked the Yamainu on their asses or better yet, break a few limbs.
Season 3 will be lactose intolerance, pinatas and fe-yay-stas.
Now think of it. The shows has plenty of action scenes and the most fucking intense of them is the one that shows a person being shot. From a distance. Drawn shittily (probably intentionally)
the whole charm of the first season was that we didn't know what the hell was going on, so in a sense the show was destined to fail in a second season.
I suppose that if you weren't interested in finding out what was actually going on and who was behind the mystery, then the second season wouldn't have that much appeal to you.
I suppose you can't be a complete faggot unless you use a tripcode like that.
Original content = New arcs for DS, it will be a BUY HIGURASHI DS GAEMS advertisement.
more Rika = more win
As I understood it S3 actually won't have much to do with the prior 2 seasons and the characters. Its more a standalone that happens to somewhat relate to the game that results in the whle Rika groundhog day situation. And no it isn't set in the past.
Where did you hear that? Nothing has been officially revealed about the plot of season 3. Saikoroshi-hen will probably be in because the last scene of episode 24 of Kai leads to it, but everything else is unfounded speculation.
Is there any mention of the date season three will be aired?
24 episodes of PUNISHMENT GAMES is what we need. a Fumoffu of Higurashi.
post moar shmion
This will only be godly if it has Rika's AU arc.
psychotic bitch really needs to get raped. Or laid, whichever one comes first
Those are all the Shmion only pics I have. But I have a bunch of rika/sextoko and Shmion with other characters, want?
ITT one heaping helping of Tsundere.
Just... less of it, that's all. I'll be happy if the Mion-biased director sticks around.
Because that'll make yandere-Mion arc doubly good.
The only tsundere in the show was Oryou.
Instead of cry moar, I'll ask: what would have made it brick-shitting for you? What kind of ending did you want?
I'll try to empty out as much Shmion as I can.
When? How are you going to fit it in to the theme? Make it interesting for the audience?
The feeling of the watching the first season was a lot different then the second season. The first season was everything I want an anime to be, really, that appeals to me. Twists and mindfucks, tense moments, 2nd season replaced it with huge arcs about doing nothing, it was disspaointing, but I will watch season three anyways because I want to see if it returns to it's roots as an above average anime.
OH FUCKING LORD THANK YOU, I LOST THIS PICTURE IN A FORMAT, IT IS FUCKING DELICIOUS, I WANT TO MAKE A POSTER OF IT AND HANG IT UP IN MY ROOM: ZIMMER STYLE. I GUARANTEE IT.
No prob anon.
Anyone else expecting S3 to be just 13 episodes and made to cash in on the live-action movie?
I'm wondering if anonymous is listening to their own words.
The entire concept of Higurashi was devising/displaying a mystery, hook the audience with the suspense, hint at some clues, and see it all to a reasonable and revealing conclusion. That typically means that some space in the story will HAVE to be allocated for revelations and discoveries of the truth.
You're whining that you're upset BECAUSE those pieces took place. Or you could be whining because the story had a reasonably-positive ending with a few moments of dramatic overexcitement (Akasaka's punch, logs).
And, quite frankly, that's your loss.
I'm going to laugh at your faces when season three drops, as every part of the mystery has been resolved. It's obvious this is going to be more fanservice/filler that won't open up anything as tense as the main story.
I don't know the source, or anything really, sorry.
Takano shooting every character, then making the Yamainu rape Hanyuu and finally, Takano fingering over the bloody mess with Tomitake's choped hand.
shion arc was the best arc. If both seasons contained the awesome of the shion arc as a standard, it would be incredible. also, if the arc has a main character or villain, you can say their name and not say some gay ass japanese name i am not going to bother to memorize, so i just say the arc where shion is the villain
Then Takano finishes her life in the happy farm.
don't lie to me anonymous, you'd shit bricks if this suddenly became porn.
we all would.
How season 2 should have ended.
with each thrust
There's always 'Higurashi ga Naku Koro Ni'.
since this thread if full of higurashi fan fags, does anyone have a link to that nico nico video that has the ps2 game's sprites singing a song that at first sounds like rap?
Giant satoko boobs and Rika so much as having boobs huh?
FUCK no one told is is was going to be Higurashi StrikerS, son of a bitch american fuck my time with them is limited
In case you were confused, that woman at the end wasn't Rika.
it was Rika with a cat's tail.
Here's a better option: How about we gun for things that DESERVE an actual conclusion to the story?
Pic so very related.
Then who was it?
satakos tits are fucking huge now, i hope she is still portrayed as loli, along with rika
rika's rape face.
That's it. My nutbladder's totally gone. Bye-bye. See-ya. Kaput. No more. Gone off the face of the earth.
I'm just gonna post Shmion for a while
Bat in one hand, bitch in the other
Savin' the day
is it possible to make a small poster of this? you know...just they make it from the file and ...yeah you take it home
Well, that's all from me.
can anyone edit this pic so the sky is longer? i want to use it as my cellphone background but it has an unremovable clock rectangle that blocks mions and rikas faces :(
I always wondered why Mion never used the gun that was always in her holster.
The conclusion was it's just a squirt gun and so wouldn't really help in situations requiring a real gun
what so someone will automatically think your a creep the moment they walk into your room?
Season 3 OP.
Can't fool me, Anonymous. I've memorized all the MOU IKKAI links on Youtube.
Thread over I think
Image reply filled. Good show.
Was this tattoo ever explained in the games?
Even in the anime was explained.
Really? What ep?
