Welcome to the new When They /cry/ board! You can post Higurashi content without worrying about spoiling things. This board won't be showing up on /all/ or the front page. You can post about Umineko and Ciconia, too, but you should use spoiler options on those for the time being. This is something we can figure out together.
A custom CSS is in the works, so you might see changes to the visuals now and again.

I think the problem with it being tied to Higurashi is that it draws comparisons to Higurashi instead of its sequel Umineko. The themes of Higurashi are still prevelant towards the original series, but with Gousotsu it's been more about the disconnect and loss of humanity of the loopers. It peered its head in Tsumihoroboshi with Rika's "I'm done with this world's Rena" scene, and in Gousotsu it's amplified by Satoko using looping as a means to an end without care for who she gets caught up in her antics since those around her are never really hurt, given that they're reset come the next timeline. To that end I think Sotsu did a good job in showing the gradual decline of Satoko, with the culminating scene of this being her killing off what little consideration towards her actions she had left.

Will Rika defeat Satoko or will she face defeat at the hands of her new nemesis? Find out on the next exciting episode of Gousotsu Z!

It's all a matter of Ryukishi's conscience. Will he pass on easy money? It's certainly a hard thing to turn down. He could write a VN with 50 hours of text, or he could write 4 episodes repeated 5 times.
Although, there's a Higurashi gacha isn't there? I guess he's already cashing out that way


Oh, and I'm not saying he's a sell-out or anything, I'm just saying he's human. He deserves to make tons of money.


I remember when we were worried that Gou was going to be a gacha tie-in. Really glad that turned out to be an unfounded rumor.

You know, this reminds me... in a good alternate reality where Satoko wasn't struck by tragedy she was just a no-good bully. This really did foreshadow Gou with how she gravitated towards being a bully once she got a taste of power.

Satoko was never a good girl.

I honestly can't imagine Hanyuu managing to kill a fly without making a fool of herself, much less a genius trap master or an improved version of herself.

I was so excited for new Higurashi last year and it's been nothing but dissapointment. Total garbage.

I wouldn't say 'garbage', but it is pretty disappointing as a whole. Repetition was taken to an extreme in this one, which does make sense story-wise, but it doesn't feel as exploratory since we already know things. Previously, Ryukishi made it pretty clear that the viewer should investigate and form theories in their head at the end of each chapter, but what are we supposed to think about now? "I wonder who Satoko will pick this time" and then there's 2-3 episodes of them going crazy. I enjoyed the theorizing of early Gou, but that flew out of the window.
Hopefully we're nearing the time where new things begin to happen since Sotsu is nearing the end of Gou's timeframe... I think?


File:1631812011254.png (20.38 KB,483x215)

It's finally caught up. In terms of repetitiveness I think that if I were to ever watch this again I'd end up skipping to the flashback arc of Gou since there's not much else to it that Sotsu doesn't also cover with more detail. However I do think there was merit to Gou in the first place since the initial big reveal was a pretty huge thing.

When it comes to thinking about Sotsu there wasn't really any point to theorizing about what Satoko would do since we already knew what was going to happen, that's why it's the answer arc. What probably was the better thing to think about was the Umineko/Ciconia connection and what Featherine is actually up to.


File:88971117_p0.png (1.01 MB,1280x720)

I agree. Matsuribayashi was already pretty bad, but Sotsugou is just awful. The only thing that I like about this shitshow is Featherine's new design.

Fast forwards 2 weeks
Rika leaves for St. Lucia to get her nipah sucked and the real Satoko miraculously comes back and learns to let go and starts living with her uncle while still keeping in touch with Rika.

The End.



I see you haven't kept up with your Umineko

what the FUCK
Were the theories about Satoko being Lambda correct the whole time, are you fucking kidding me?

Not that I wasn't expecting Rika's adventure in St. Lucia, but maybe there was a better time to do it...


It was pretty obvious that they'd keep people waiting for whatever happens after Satoko pulls out her gun. Going from that to a relatively laid back episode fits with the rollercoaster ride style Gou has. Now people will be building up their anticipation of what happens after looper Satoko is revealed and when it will be shown.


rika isn't allowed hopes and dreams

Hmm... I'd have to go watch it again


File:[SubsPlease] Higurashi no ….jpg (215.55 KB,1280x720)

You gotta ask, does this look like the face of someone who's in anyway concerned with what just occurred?


Yeah, she doesn't seem particularly threatened by the goat monster. More amused than anything, honestly. I'm kind of looking forward to Hanyuu getting bullied next episode, I think it'll be entertaining.


Hopefully if there's Hanyuu bullying she'll go Auauauau a lot

The goat monster got bullied pretty hard.

Did anyone else spot Dlanor in episode 9 of Gou? I wonder what it could mean for her to make such a subtle appearance in Higurashi.

Pixiv had a Higurashi art contest

As is usually the case with art contests, I liked the stuff that didn't win more than the stuff that did.


Crazy how after over a decade of Higurashi being out of the limelight it just came and stole it right back.
