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.

What do you think the December announcement will be? I'm guessing another anime since there's already a gacha. Maybe it'll be another 2 seasons of murdering again, but with a different character. Shion destroys reality because she doesn't like her hair ribbon?

What the fuck dudes, I've been a bit busy recently and only just got around to watching Sotsu 14, this was some seriously epic shit. I never would have imagined that Higurashi meets DBZ was something I needed in my life. Also, habitual reminder that it's all Rika's fault.

Now the first arc is over, I think it's time for a Higurashi discussion and theorycrafting thread. Obviously contains spoilers for the entire series, I will be using spoiler tags but some things might slip by, so hide the thread if you care about that.

First, the struggle with Rena - I am inclined to believe that Keiichi hallucinated the whole thing. Needless to say, the scene itself is pretty ridiculous, what with Keiichi being repeatedly stabbed in the chest but still somehow managing to muster up the strength to bludgeon Rena with the clock several times. Later when we see him in the hospital, it's confirmed that he is a late stage HS patient, and his wounds don't match the state he was in when he lost consciousness - only his left cheek was grazed, and he had no neck injuries. Except for Ooishi confirming that something went down at his house on that night, none of the other characters allude to what really happened (understandable since Keiichi has just woken up from a coma.) Also, what happened to the neck collar? He's not wearing it anymore when Mion visits.

What the actual fuck happened to Tomitake, Takano and Irie? Takano shows up for only a few seconds, Tomitake shows up briefly but behaves the same as in Onikakushi, and since Keiichi doesn't go talk to them during the festival we don't see any more of them, and Irie doesn't show up at all and his clinic is being "remodeled". I think the most likely scenario is that Takano died for real (since the fake body wasn't found in the mountains and she is considered "missing") and the project was canceled, hence the "remodeling", but then I have no idea how she died. Since Tomitake's body wasn't found either, it's also possible that he wasn't injected with the HS pathogen.

Speaking of Takano, from the circumstances surrounding Rika's death we know it wasn't her who did it this time. I believe Satoko had a HS episode and Rika was forced to kill her, and then committed suicide by stabbing her own neck as seen in Meakashi.
R:8 / I:4
were you expecting some nice girl? too bad. it's just me, Satoko. sorry.
R:5 / I:2
Would you forgive Satoko if she allowed you to freely use her massive boobs?
R:22 / I:14
If this arc doesn't heavily deviate from the original I'm personally going to go to Japan and beat the shit out of R07.

"Higurashi Sotsu OP2" Lyrics

My witch is golden dreamer
Of magical gore bits
Nothing is on the creature
For Maria in September

Witch is golden dreamer
It's magical Gohda chef
I'm gonna piss in fire
For magical breeding power

In the brewing party
Saw every everything
There he comes, breaking the darkness
George in grief

Yo, Master crazy
Saw every everything
In a way, I'm feeling
My broken artichoke

Give up kissu, Special Agent Satoko's got you cornered now!

hat silhouette which
Began to grow distant
Will never turn back again

Even if the long night were to end,
The errors and the sins
Won't fade away—now or ever

With the setting sun,
The darkness creeps in closer
Dyeing all that is pure with black

The more I wonder, I ask—
Why did you test me with pain?

All I ever wanted
Was just one single thing—
Just that smile

All those days of making mistakes
Again and again—
We could take them apart
And put them back together in place

Even if you lose your way,
I'll set off to come see you
So come, wipe away all those
Heartbreaking tears

Before we even realized,
We had long forgotten
That tender voice of yours—
So let us search for it

If only we could bring ourselves
To take each other's hands again;
One more time—
Let's make a promise to each other
R:14 / I:10
do you love rena?
R:5 / I:2
Is there a worse type of world than one where Rena snaps? She's easily the most dangerous since she's pretty capable of hiding her intentions until the very last moment, and unlike the rest (save Takano) she thoroughly plans out her actions to make sure they succeed.

Something I've been meaning to ask for weeks but always forget. Can anyone explain how Rika and Satoko's abilities are able to manifest concurrently? Up until now only Rika was looping, and my personal interpretation was that each fragment exists as a possible reality, but is only actually set into motion when Rika (or her consciousness, rather) enters it, since she is not shown to be able to live through multiple fragments at the same time. Now that Satoko has become a looper, how do her powers affect Rika and vice-versa? It seems at this point in time Satoko is more powerful and so I assume she would take precedence, but then what happens when Satoko resets while Rika is still alive, like the finger snapping thing in this episode?
R:0 / I:0
I think that this describes Rika and Satoko's relationship very well.
R:4 / I:2
I wonder...
R:7 / I:1

I think Rena did it better.
R:18 / I:5
So do we all agree that it's Rika's fault for being a shitty friend?
R:13 / I:2
R:5 / I:2
explain this to me, if this were Hanyuu then why would she be portrayed in a somewhat menacing manner in the OP? If the series assumes you know it's a sequel then there's no reason as to why it would expect you to think that Hanyuu is in anyway evil. So therefore this has to be Featherine

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

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?
