R:8 / I:3 First person to get the rare Hanyuu name gets 5 kissu bucks (no cash value)
R:7 / I:6
R:4 / I:3 I want a romantic/dating VN where I can hang out with Hanyuu and marry her!
R:5 / I:4 ERIKANTRICE THREAD
Erikantrice is the theory that explain all umineko with 3 points:
1)same culprits for every game Kanon and George 2)ep5 and ep6 is explained with Erika=Kanon the detective fantasy of Yasu 3)Ikuko is Yasu all umineko is the magic version of her trying to make battler remember
R:3 / I:3 Cute. She should have been a loli from the beginning, if you ask me.
R:20 / I:14 Satoko doing her civic duty to reform former criminals!
R:0 / I:0 C-C-C-C-C-CROSS COUNTER?????!??!?!!?
R:6 / I:3 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.
R:3 / I:2 Just a friendly reminder: FUCK SATOKO
R:4 / I:2 FOR RIKAAAAAAAAAAA
R:2 / I:0 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!
R:2 / I:1 FUCK STUDYING
R:6 / I:5 happy wife, happy life
R:9 / I:6 I was so excited for new Higurashi last year and it's been nothing but dissapointment. Total garbage.
R:18 / I:6 what the FUCK Were the theories about Satoko being Lambda correct the whole time, are you fucking kidding me?
R:19 / I:8 FUCK SATOKO FUCK SATOKO FUCK SATOKO
R:2 / I:2 It's all connected
R:0 / I:0 lol noob
R:4 / I:3 If Satoko is so bad and hated why does she take up half the catalog?
As is usually the case with art contests, I liked the stuff that didn't win more than the stuff that did.
R:2 / I:2 What was she thinking of to fake her blush?
R:11 / I:3 time to pay, anon. for lewding my precious Rika.
R:13 / I:7 UWOOOOH SATOKO'S ARMPITS
R:57 / I:24 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.
R:0 / I:0 happy kakera happy life
R:4 / I:0 you just got tricked
R:2 / I:2 Shhh. Be very quiet. The witch is sleeping.
R:8 / I:6 This SMUG BITCH is playing with your heartstrings. And basically, you're fucking stupid.
R:3 / I:0
"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
R:15 / I:10 Give up kissu, Special Agent Satoko's got you cornered now!
R:3 / I:2 How many Satokos do you think you could take in a fight? No traps or other trickery, just body against body. I think I could take at least a dozen.
R:1 / I:1 moshi moshi
R:4 / I:2 Takano-san and Satoko are crying. Which one would you try to calm?
R:1 / I:1 nipaaa~
R:2 / I:0 Where does she even conceal the gun at? She wears a skirt with tights. Tokarevs are kind of heavy too; all steel construction.
R:7 / I:2 what does type-moon have to do with higurashi?
R:1 / I:1 What the hell, she strangled her to death at school in broad daylight with other kids running around a few meters away from them and carried her body around.
R:2 / I:1 Don't you worry your pretty little head. I'll help you get through that bathtub drain. Nipaa~
R:4 / I:2 Just remember, the only reason Rika lost is because they had to split her vote between TWO top 10 winners.
R:7 / I:5 Mion is a girl!
R:14 / I:9 CONFIRMED MION IS A SAINT
R:2 / I:1 Remember to clean your room and put your futon away, or Satoko-chan will scold you.
R:5 / I:3 Bern!
R:1 / I:1 this FUCKING SMUG BITCH
R:0 / I:0 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.
R:4 / I:0 Satoko & Rika forever.
R:9 / I:3 I think this all but confirms that the "random" L5 outbreaks in the other arcs weren't nearly as dictated by chance as one may have thought.
R:5 / I:1 I can't believe she was taken from us. Please come back...
R:1 / I:0 Was this always the scenery?
R:0 / I:0 feelio when you're best friend traps you in a time loop to be tortured to death over and over
R:4 / I:0 Yuri connoisseurs, we won.
R:2 / I:0 Getting flashbacks to EP8 from this...
R:1 / I:1 The perspective on this still messes with me.
R:17 / I:6 I need to hurry up and read Umineko before the next Higurashi anime, but uhh... I can't remember what is what. Does this look right? PC remaster port? Huh? Rondo Episode 6 is in beta? What? Uhh....
R:3 / I:2 ほら～ 絶対に大きくなるといった
R:2 / I:1 Are you (re)reading Umineko in preparation for Sotsu in 1(ONE!) week?
R:6 / I:0 stream up
R:7 / I:1 I think we can all agree that there's no way in HELL Gou actually ends (no next season) next episode. So when do you think S2 is scheduled for
R:0 / I:0 New trailer.
R:1 / I:0 I love my wife Hanyuu!
R:3 / I:0 Domo Domo
R:2 / I:0 Was it all just a ploy to make me play a gacha? I feel used..
R:5 / I:1 zettai
R:10 / I:3 The ride has just begun.
R:14 / I:6
R:14 / I:4 Behold the the majestic Witch of Theatergoing, Drama and Spectating Featherine Augustus Aurora
R:2 / I:1 ￥kills herself every time she draws a wrong card
R:17 / I:6 ｷﾀ━━━(ﾟ∀ﾟ)━━━!!
R:1 / I:0 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 gou spoiler dont click
R:3 / 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 pwned
R:5 / I:2 OK 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
R:11 / I:2 It was actually Ciconia phase 2 all along
R:4 / I:1 I HAVE A SIDE MOUTH AND I MUST SCREAM AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH seriously though it's really bad in this
R:6 / I:2 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
R:2 / I:1 Is it just me, or does this BGM here sound... different?
R:10 / I:4 Is Mion retarded? Why didn't she shoot Ooishii?
R:8 / I:7 Hanyuu...
R:5 / I:2 So I heard you wanted to have some fun with Sextoko
R:4 / I:0
R:1 / I:0
R:3 / I:2 merry christmas, /cry/
R:8 / I:2 wtf
R:2 / I:0 *bang*
R:13 / I:5 I WILL shoot somebody if this is just a repeat of Minagoroshi at this point.
R:2 / I:0 It's dangerous to go alone. Take this.
R:5 / I:0 big
R:0 / I:0
R:5 / I:2 So now it's gone from proceeding along the lines of Tatagoroshi to Minagoroshi...
R:4 / I:1 Why is she so useless?
R:0 / I:0 Miko moe!
R:4 / I:1 >you can only hear Rena proclaim her love to Keiichi by playing fucking pachinko >meanwhile MionxKeiichi (the absolute most plebian shit pairing) gets a rabu rabu OVA
NUKE JAPAN AGAIN
R:0 / I:0 ｷﾀ━━━(ﾟ∀ﾟ)━━━!!
R:1 / I:1
R:0 / I:0 Battler takes it up the ass lol
R:3 / I:1 thinking about broccoli
R:2 / I:1
R:0 / I:0 Rena on the front page!
R:7 / I:1 Who is cuter: Mion or Shion?
R:12 / I:3 So uhh... how did you guys think/know this is Shion again? I thought it was Mion this time
R:17 / I:7 Let's play a guessing game /cry/!
The theme is, Shion or Mion?
R:1 / I:1 Mion.... no...
R:2 / I:1 when pissu /cry/s
R:2 / I:2 ...And everyone died. The end.
R:1 / I:0 Well, that's not a very sturdy door.
R:0 / I:0 Hmm?
R:4 / I:2 This might be the last week /cry/ exists since it isn't being used much at all. What are your thoughts? I guess it could also stay as a really slow board, but I'm not so sure we want one of those
R:0 / I:0 Almost lost these lyrics videos when the previous account on youtube was deleted. Thankfully someone else uploaded them, but it was my error to not already have them downloaded to my drive. sigh..
R:1 / I:1 ｷﾀ━━━(ﾟ∀ﾟ)━━━!!
R:3 / I:1 How many Satokos do you think you could take in a fight at once? I'd think I could handle about 4
R:2 / I:1 >/cry/ Is this /r9k/?
R:2 / I:1 she did the thing
R:1 / I:0 Keiichi without dentures
R:1 / I:1 test
R:6 / I:0 (sticky) 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.
