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.

This.

I came aboard for a horror anime, not a fucking "nothing interesting whatsoever happens in the entire goddamn Save Satoko arc" anime.

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.

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.
>>
>>10134238
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.

>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.
>>
>>10134323
Because the story is well written. If you disagree, you either have no eyes, no brain, or are simply a troll.

This.

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.
>>
>>10134826
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?
>>
>>10134826
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.
>>
>>10134826
Season 3 will be lactose intolerance, pinatas and fe-yay-stas.
>>
>>10134899

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)
>>
>>10134676
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.
>>
>>10134977
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.
>>
>>10135060

I suppose you can't be a complete faggot unless you use a tripcode like that.

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.
>>
>>10135668
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.

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.

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.
