My Favorite Higurashi character, I has one!

Hanyuu!


Enough that I made an icon of her. I'm rather intriqued however by the way the series is going, it's not as macabre as the previous season.. this may just be a false start or it may be the light at the end of the tunnel, not too sure. Needless to say, I really like Rika too (and well all considering.. Rika was the only one who didn't do a whole lot of shitty things in the previous season, she was just the eternal victim.

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.

I am not easily disturbed, not by a long shot. I am a 4chan kid, meaning that I've probably seen enough shit that I do not run the danger of scarring for life anymore. My brain has been shot so many times that it's thrown itself into the swiss cheese subclass and genre.

However after watching 4 episodes of "Higurashi no Naku Koko ni", I sort of kind of don't want to turn out the light to go to bed. Granted, this is not BAD.. I actually loved it.. but damn if in four episodes it didn't cause me to start not once, not twice.. but eight times. I was suitably prepared by the helpful review that Anime World Order provided me but much like all reviews (and spoilers), you just have no FUCKING CLUE what you're in for.

The shit's bananas, but hell.. I approve.
