Minor typo.

This truly is an awesome anime, though I (unlike the majority of people according to MAL) like the first season more than the second. Shimamiya Eiko's openings to Higurashi are beyond awesome.

I'm quite amazed if there hasn't already been a thread about Higurashi, seeing as it truly is great.

Revenge of the... KILLER LOLIS!

This was creepy as hell though... I'm not quite sure I understand what they were doing every 3 or 4 episodes or so; it's almost as if they started the story over with a different chain of events... I've only seen half of the episodes, though, so maybe it makes sense in the end.

Rena is cute though :3
 
I did it wrong. I watched Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, it didn't make any sense at all and I rated it low. Then I watched Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai and everything made perfect sense and I increased it's prequel's score by few points.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei is getting same score of 8, no matter how badly the last episode sucks (I doubt it does). You really can't rate the seasons separately. Just watch them all and rate the whole series :).

Haha :p

With enough insight and some thinking you can probably figure out what's happening in the Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni series before the Kai.

Anyways...

Some could say it makes "sense"... Depends on the point of view. :)

    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    That is such a Texas thing to say lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Nobody?
  • jonas jonas:
    Hi vypur85, long time no see
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hi vypur85, long time no see.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    We are all somebody
  • Varine Varine:
    I kinda like being nobody tho.
