File:[Resubs] Higurashi No Naku….mp4 (13.48 MB,1280x720)


Alright, it's time to /cry/!
To celebrate Watanagashi (and /cry/'s yearly return) we're going to stream the original Higurashi anime and all its many episodes! It will never fit in one or even 4 nights, so we're going to do it as weeks-long event with like 4-6 episodes each weekday.
Standard stream start time of 7PM EST / 12AM UTC (EDIT: MOVED BACK AN HOUR)
Question Arc: 12th through 16th
Answer Arc: 19th through 23rd
Specials: 26th+

If you don't know what Higurashi is like, well... It's happy, but also sad and very violent. Extremely good characters and it's very emotional and the music is fantastic, including the anime-exclusive stuff. The ideal experience is to read it, but if you don't have about 80 hours to devote to that then you should at least watch the anime. It's one of things you really need to experience.

After all this concludes I think I'll move this thread to /cry/ for archival purposes

Reminder! Not sure how many episodes it will be each day, as I think we'll try to divide them in a way that makes the most sense and end each day with a little bit of closure and not a big "TO BE CONTINUED" thing.
I hope we can get a few people that haven't read or watched Higurashi to join, as it's a pretty important thing that you should experience and know.
I'm also quite excited about watching it together with kissu friends.


>I hope we can get a few people that haven't read or watched Higurashi to join
I seriously hope not. I wouldn't want their first experience with Higurashi to be the anime.


hey it's better than nothing isn't it
t. went straight for the novel

Sure, that's the preferred, ideal experience. But, most people aren't willing to spend something like 100 hours reading all of it. The choice then becomes to remain completely ignorant of it or to watch the anime adaptation. The most recent VN-anime thing that kissu had around was Utawarerumono's third adaptation, and I think (hope) people were able to enjoy the anime even if they didn't spend 150 hours on the VNs.
"The VN/manga/LN/etc is better" is a common refrain to hear in a discussion about any non-original anime, but that doesn't stop people from enjoying the animated version.


higurashi is an important stop on the imageboard otaku pilgrimage

IT'S TODAY! It's in a bit over five hours from the time of this post. There is going to be four episodes today.
Due to how the story works, we're dealing with episode arcs of the following length: 4, 4, 5, 2, 6, 5.
I'm thinking we'll combine the 5 and 2 as it will lead us with most manageable daily runtimes and stay within 5 weekdays.

i considered blasting through the VNs in time with the stream days but reconsidered. rushing it would make me enjoy it less. i hope it gets streamed again same time next year


Ooh, nice.
Yeah, you definitely don't want to rush through it. I could definitely see it becoming a yearly thing. If you're reading through it, consider making a thread or some posts about it! I have an Umineko thread going on /cry/ and it's pretty fun to give my thoughts about it as I go through the story

The daily Higurashi streams are now starting one hour later each day as a result of the /poll/!


File:[SubsPlease] Higurashi no ….jpg (9.39 KB,316x385)

>one hour later each day
That would mean 7 today, 8 tomorrow, 9 the next day, etc.


then the starting time is now 7PM EST/12AM UTC each day


File:[Kirion] Higurashi no Naku….png (564.75 KB,1280x720)

Episode 5-8!


so people can see it from index


File:[Kirion] Higurashi no Naku….png (425.52 KB,1280x720)

Starting in less than an hour!
Today is 7 episodes. Unfortunately there's not really a good way to split them and have it done in 5 days




Won't be able to attend this one, feel free to start at 5.


Well, we got 4 votes to move the time back so it's not going to change.
Starting in about an hour!




Haven't been able to attend any because I'm trying to wake up in the morning and today I'm eating with parents...


about to start!

20 minute warning! Today is the last 5 episodes of the Question arc!



Oh, uhh... Oyashiro-sama cursed me and I have no power in my house for a few days and I'm in a hotel. Someone pass it along here or in IRC that the Higurashi stream guy is not able to host for the next few days most likely and the guy that does seasonal stream can step in if he wants to.
Don't pressure him, though, as it was my decision to set this up every day. We can just delay everything by a week if need be.
Anyway... We're on Kai now, episode 1. Try to split it so there's some sort of conclusion at the end of each day, I guess.
I don't trust hotel wifi so this will be only post until I'm back home. Weeeeeee


is it a love hotel?


Well, I guess I'll be taking over for as long as you're out of power then. Not sure what you'd want but to me it seems like the most sensible option is to get the arcs we can do in a day done in one and then the final big arc we can split over two days with the stopping point for Wednesday being the 'turning' point of sorts. Friday can then be all of Rei and Kira at the same time to end things on a fun note.


OK I lied and I'm back... uhh, how many episodes is that per day? The plan was having "cour 2" or "season 2" or whatever you call the Answer arc for this week, then next week are the specials. I don't think doing multiple days in a row of 5+ hour streams is a good idea during the week



File:[1111] Higurashi no Naku K….jpg (135.42 KB,1024x576)

Ohhhh, putting the specials next week does sound better. Yeah, this is probably better then. The schedule is 5, 4, 4, 5, 5 episodes.


Tomorrow is a holiday. Just power through the whole thing to celebrate our freedoms.


Wishes of a happy Juneteenth, from Hinamizawa.


Nvm looked it up. Enjoy

5 minutes!


stream is starting soon!


File:28 - You.flac (16.77 MB)

15 minutes!
Today's 4 episodes ends with the part where 'You' plays in the VN. It kind of bothers me that the anime didn't use it since it's such a tremendously powerful song both in when it's used and the song itself. I remember it being played only a few times and it means it's something significant.

Kai is ending with tonight's stream! Will Rika find her miracle and will there be a stream day without prolonged suffering? Tune in to find out!
Starting in about 20 minutes!



Here was the VN version of a certain fantastic moment in this night's stream. The part where Akasawa finally shows up. Until this point in the VN the text is as you see it (I think) so once you start seeing this it's such a fantastic level of excitement. I don't think I've ever been so excited for anything else in any form of media. This is the only time this song plays, a unique version of 'You' named "You - Destructive".
I'm not going to track down every possible version of the portraits (annoying just to find this one), so if you have complaints just squint your eyes or something.
Even if you've seen the anime already, you really should consider reading the VN if you have the time.


Good stuff, totally different.
Gotta say, I'm glad I jumped straight into the VN, the anime didn't convey its intensity nearly as well in either the serious or happy parts.


Today is Rei! Starting on the hour! (which is about an hour from now) https://theatre.kissu.moe/kiss/cry


STARTING! (only a couple days left)


File:[Doki]_Higurashi_no_Naku_K….jpg (154.74 KB,1920x1080)

Today is the last stream! In 15 minutes we'll be watching Nekogoroshi-hen and Kira!
Kira is quite a ride


File:[Doki]_Higurashi_no_Naku_K….jpg (355.55 KB,1920x1080)

Ah yeah, and this thread will be getting moved to /cry/ for semi-archival purposes once the stream ends in a couple hours


File:[Doki]_Higurashi_no_Naku_K….jpg (360.14 KB,1920x1080)

Thread moved to /cry/! Let's do it again next year! (maybe)




File:[Kirion] Higurashi no Naku….png (408.44 KB,1280x720)

does not exist


File:rika butt.jpg (99.87 KB,1195x1078)

Explain this then.

It's fan art from the -atari artist obviously.
