She did nothing wrong.


I agree, Vier was cruelly betrayed by Bernkastel. She deserved to get chandeliered.


She did nothing right.

I've come to the realization that Gou can be enjoyed 100% without having any knowledge of Umineko. While a bunch of it could be seen as Umineko fanservice that's more enjoyable after having read it, it's not at all a required reading to understand Gou. At most it gives context to hints that were scattered out throughout bonus scenes in Umineko that gave reference to Bern's backstory and the Higurashi connection.

Also it may even be better for those without having experienced Umineko as based off of context clues in it, one could infer that Rika is forced to kill Satoko

>I've come to the realization that Gou can be enjoyed 100% >>484
When people speculated about Higurashi being conneceted to Umineko I thought there were subtle hints and stuff in both stories, not something this blatant.
I only recently started reading the Umineko manga and I think I enjoyed the Gou and the speculations a lot more due to not knowing Umineko.


the speculation was more about how it is that they're connected, the link was a given
a lot of stuff spells it out but doesn't give details


While the Umineko manga is pretty good. I'd still suggest reading the PS3 version of the VN first for the godlike BGM and vocal performances.


Can we say either way with confidence yet? A direct connection to Umineko was only really established last episode and we have no idea how far or otherwise the next four episodes will go along that path. Personally I expect it to keep it vague and mysterious so as to advertise Umineko to newcomers, but giving how badly Gou has failed as a newcomer-friendly anime regarding the Higurashi parts, I wouldn't be surprised if they end up going whole hog.

>Gou has failed as a newcomer-friendly anime regarding the Higurashi parts

Well to their credit, R07 lied through their teeth when they claimed this was a remake for the purpose of surprising viewers and it was a resounding success. It was never meant to be newcomer-friendly, and anyone that believed it to be was fooled by the early marketing. As for the Umineko connection, the stuff that connects Higurashi to Umineko is not at all relevant to the plot of Umineko. All it does is add more to certain meta characters and create a shared universe between R07's works like with the shared characters in CLAMP's works. You wouldn't tell somebody that it's necessary to watch Rayearth to understand Card Captor Sakura, XXXHolic, or vice versa, but it adds a bit to those stories/characters knowing that connection.

I'm going to need to remove /cry/ from my /all/ setup, it's the second time someone rushed to post a spoiler. I swear, it's really not that difficult to wait a day


File:[SubsPlease] Higurashi no ….jpg (160.46 KB,1280x720)

Wasn't the purpose of the board to be able to post spoilers without care...

Also holy hell she's tall


File:featherine stitch.jpg (209.37 KB,2075x2386)

>Also holy hell she's tall


key framers forgot that she's a highschool student in this


Is it really a spoiler if it was revealed in the OP in episode 2?

File:[SubsPlease] Higurashi no ….jpg (143.93 KB,1280x720)


Okay, uhh... so it's been a couple episodes now and I have to ask: Why or how did Rika completely seem to forget that Satoko pulled this? Is it just implied Satoko has superior powers?


I'm pretty sure the current arc doesn't take place after that. It's an "answer arc", if you will.


Yeah, this is the past, what lead up to the events that made satoko pull the gun on rika


Hm, so your theory is that the current 'world' from episode 18 onward happened chronologically before episode 17? Hmm... so I guess the current one is doomed if that's true


I'm not so sure it's a theory as it is just out there in the open. The only way that Satoko could become a looper is if she was bestowed those powers. And at the end of this episode we see her awaken and meet Featherine (Hanyuu), who can easily do this. She's essentially a god.

Has /cry/ noticed how much Satoko is starting to resemble Lambda's design in the post-kai arc?


File:mpv-shot0006.jpg (304.84 KB,1920x1080)

Their hair is about the same length, but the style is a bit different. Different eye color, too. She does look a bit closer to Lambda now, but there's still plenty of differences.

what an IDIOT


File:[HorribleSubs] Higurashi n….jpg (151.22 KB,1280x720)

more like Dumbtako


So the reason Satoko holds a grudge against Rika is because she was too dumb to get into the same school as her?


File:[SubsPlease] Higurashi no ….jpg (148.67 KB,1280x720)

She can't even identify basic vegetables

Was this scene really necessary?


yes, also very arousing


Takano is really cute in that outfit, so absolutely.


File:satanko.webm (662.74 KB,1280x720)

It serves as a nice bookend to Satoko taking out the trash at the end of that episode.


File:1609396672050.gif (3.49 MB,600x330)

But WHERE did she pull that gun from?


She's a Gauntlet Knight and pulled it out of her 4th dimensional storage space.

So this was Satoko bonking K1, right? The rest is an hallucination. Wouldn't make any sense otherwise.

He's a true sharpshooter


File:[Erai-raws] Higurashi no N….jpg (74.72 KB,1280x720)

It's the second SHAFT headtilt of the show.


Satoko was already bloodied by the time Ooishi reached the shrine, and the bat was present in Satoko's house, so my guess is this:
- Ooishi strongarmed Satoko into helping him investigate the curse, by threatening to release Teppei.
- He arranged for Satoko to invite Keiichi to his house, to also recruit him as usual.
- While carrying the bat, something went down with Tomitake and Takano that caused him to be injected with the syndrome.
- In a rage, he scrapped his plan and bonked Keiichi (who then hallucinates fighting back against Teppei).
- Then Ooishi goes to the shrine and the massacre happens.

How's R07 going to outdo this cut? I think this may be the pinnacle of the series right here.

Her will has finally been broken.

Makes sense, Satoko was the true culprit all along...


File:parallel_paradise.jpg (461.32 KB,1920x2160)


she knows....


I've got to say, the tension that was present throughout this episode was amazing and couldn't have been pulled off without all the excess violence and shock in the prior ones. R07 really outdid himself this time.
