PostSubject: Higurashi and Umineko   23rd November 2012, 2:03 pm

Who has seen these two series? (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and Umineko no Naku Koro ni?)

I've watched Higurashi like 4 times already, I'm a sucker for a gore series....^^;;

Umineko was alright but I want to play the Visual Novel since the anime disappointed me

Umineko. The best (love)story ive ever read. Battler x Yasu <3 , my OTP of all OTP's.

for me the Umienko Anime is just "Bonus": to see some things animated and of
course of the voice acting. i hate DEEN for ruin the story so much but i
love them for choosing such good voice actors. to bad that they (the seiyüs) didnt
had the chance to show they full potencial in the anime (like they did
in the Drama CDs and the PS3 adaption of the COMPLETE (!!) Sound Novel. this means the characters who didnt appeard in the anime have also voices. i cant stop fangirling over the voice of Willard H. Wright ... nbfjnbfvrjvf *-* )
Btw DEEN animated just the first half of the Story (Umineko Episode 1 - 4) but NOT Umineko Chiru (Episode 5 - 8 )

bah
i need Chiru animated sooooo bad. the DEEN anime alone made no sense at all
(btw umineko have NO
Spoiler:
 
like higurashi.)
and hey Yasu appeard in the Anime but no one notice her/him because of no Chiru knowledge. even in the very first opening you can see a Yasu related thing. and the signs about "battlers sin" in ep 12 & 24 of the anime, c'mon.

Umineko Chiru-Opening


official motion graphic for episode 7 {Requiem of the Golden Witch}



this song ..... the two scenes in the sound novel when this song was played ... i cried so hard



Fanmade Ending of "Episode 4" (Anime Ep 26). when i watch the anime i was thinking:
"damn you freaking DEEN wheres the HUG :O "
but the fanbase dit it right *-*




oh btw got vol. 1 of the english Umineko Manga today =)

I really enjoyed Higurashi when I watched it. The story is very intriguing! Both seasons are very good, the first one has lots of scary moments and the second was very conclusive in terms of plots. The songs are all great too! I love Naraku no Hana so much.
I tried to watch Umineko, I did until episode 16 or something... But it was just a big no for me. The story had lots of potential, but there were no smart explanations or events like in Higurashi. Bernkastel was lovely, tho. XD

I've been dying to watch Higurashi and Umineko, I've seen clips and I watched a little bit of Higurashi Kira but I haven't had the chance to watch the series. Please tell me I'm not the only person who cringed at the maggots in Rena's neck!?!?!?!?

Oh gosh, Kira wasn't as great as the first 3 seasons, just skip Kira for now XD

The whole series made me cringe, but now I think of Higurashi whenever I hear the word maggot XD

Oh yes, the maggot scene is definitely up there as one of the more cringe-worthy scenes in Higurashi.
The worst one for me though is
Spoiler:
 
But it's a really good series, I feel like they did a good job with the adaption of Higurashi.

If only they'd done a better job with Umineko... I wouldn't really recommend watching the Umineko anime if you aren't familiar with the series already :/ It doesn't do the visual novel any justice at all.

Yeah, I have Umineko on my list of things to watch..I've seen a few clips and I can say this scene almost made me cry and idk why XD

..idk how to put the spoiler thing on here shame on me, but

POSSIBLE SPOILER~~

The part where Rosa rips the head off of Maria's doll like...that scene just upsets me so much.

^To use the spoiler tags you just write [spoiler*]spoiler here[/spoiler*], just remove the stars!
And yeah, that scene is very upsetting. Actually, just about any scene with Rosa and Maria upset me. I just want them to be happy ;A;

Oh my gosh, the worst scene surprisingly for me was when Mion/Shion

Spoiler:
 

It wasn't even bad and I remember I watched like a clip of that scene before I watched the actual series and I had nightmares for days for some reason. So weird!

like i said before Ryukishi07 did a far better job with Umineko than Higurashi (i said this as a "when they cry"-lover in general) and Umineko is mich more DEEP and complicated than Higurashi. its not his fault that DEEN runied the story and (poorly) adapted just 4 arcs of 8 arcs.

my favorite chara of ALL TIME. thx Umineko =)
http://umineko.wikia.com/wiki/Yasu



THIS scene. Musou Rosa <3
it was so freaking short in the anime. they not even made it out of the rose garden xD


BGM





the right way to watch the higurashi anime


Quote :
Higurashi no naku koro ni - 26 Episodes
Bonus Episode ~Cat Killing Chapter ~
Higurashi no naku koro ni Kira - 24 Episodes
(OVA) Higurashi no naku koro ni Rei - 5 Episodes (Plot important epsiode 2,3,4)
(OVA) Higurashi no naku koro ni Kira - 4 Episodes (OVA for the 10 years birthday anniversary. Episode 1: Fanserice Ecchi fest, 2: Magical Girls. 3: Paaring Comedy. 4: cute episode that makes no sense at all. nothing in Kira i canon.)

After putting it off and putting it off I finally started Higurashi. Now, I already know the plot to a degree, so that may be why I feel this way but..

Spoiler:
 

Also I noticed the blood and violence..like..the show works up to it..I thought it was just BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD everywhere...but I was surprised at the lack of it for the first couple of arcs.

no I'm on episode 21 i believe and I'm not in Kai yet, but I have a basic idea of what happens because I was curious before I watched the show. I have a BAD habit of doing that.

Kai begins after episode 26 of the first season ^^

for the one who saw episode 11 of the umineko anime you should watch this from 14:20 - end.
so emotional at some points. and deen totaly destroyed it. so done judge umineko because of deen's anime.

New Episodes 2013

Quote :

The new project will be entitled Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kaku (ひぐらしのなく頃に 拡), and its plot based on Higurashi Outbreak (ひぐらしアウトブレーク), a short story from series author Ryukishi07 that was included in the original soundtrack for the Higurashi Daybreak doujin third-person shooter on the PC.

News of Higurashi no Naki Koro ni Kaku broke minutes ago at an Higurashi 10th Anniversary Fan Meeting (ひぐらし10周年ファンミーティング… it’s been that long already? 10 years?) event held at Tokyo Dome City today.

Several voice actors involved with the Higurashi anime series – Souichiro Hoshi (Keiichi Maebara), Mai Nakahara (Rena Ryugu), Miki Itou (Miyo Takano), and Chafurin/Hirotaka Shimasawa (Kuraudo Oishi) – were present, and the by-invitation-only event (fans had to ballot for entry tickets) was supposed to be just an opportunity for fans to meet the cast and hear them talk about interesting stories from when they were recording the dialogue for the anime.

There were also live musical performances by Rekka Katakiri and anNina, who were responsible for the Higurashi anime ED songs why, or why not and Taishou A (対象a or “Target A”).

According to Twitter user hiro@さすらいのイベリーマン, the surprise announcement came during the event’s ending roll, where they listed the names of all the special guests in attending and thanked everyone. The credits roll eventually culminated in the announcement of the new anime project for 2013, which hiro here described it as Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kaku Outbreak (ひぐらしのなく頃に 拡アウトブレーク).

Next, Satsuki Yukino, the voice behind twins Mion and Shion Sonozaki, was brought out on stage to perform a live rendition of YOU, which was a BGM in one of the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai visual novels (Meakashi-hen). Yukino was a secret guest, as her appearance was not advertised in the original event listing.

I just love Umineko
<3
Like I watched Higurashi but just randomly stopped when I had like three episodes left....never picked it up again.

Umineko is just so strange and original...it was actually easier to follow then Higurashi.

äh no?! xD Umineko is much much more complicated then Higurashi. the anime explained nothing you need the Chiru Arcs to understand it. but they where never animated.
i just say: Yasu = (illusionary)-Beato + Shannon + Kanon Razz
fault of the tragedy = Yasu's broken heart because of Battler. bla bla bla .... buy the novel ^^
oh i forgot the most important thing: witches don't exist Smile

The When They Cry series (both Higurashi and Umineko) are some of my absolute favorites. I first got into Higurashi back in my Freshman year of high school. I watched Kai first becuase the first season had been taken down on Youtube. And boy, am I glad I did! The gore and in-your-face horror of the first season would have scared me off for sure. Instead, I watched the first season later, after becoming attatched to the characters and knowing exactly what their fate was...

That said, both the Umineko and Higurashi animes are absolutely terrible when compared to their source material: a series of novel games by Ryukishi07.
I adore that translation group for being awesome and providing free translations for those who buy the Japanese Umineko games. I only wish they had been the ones to translate Higurashi, and not these half-assed "official" translations from Manga Gamer. They're so full of broken English that it's sad.

Oh, and I heard that the Umineko anime is going to be dubbed and sold in the US. Like, what the hell? It's an incomplete series that will never be finished. Why would you want to sell it?

No its a Sub-Only Blu Ray release. i'm thinking to import it because the BD footage looks much better than the tv version, it is uncensored and waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay cheaper than the 12 "2 episode disks" in japan xD

did you saw some scenes from the PS3 adaption of Chiru? i freaking adore the voice of willard h whright *_*

yes the novel is still better but the anime of higurashi didnt fail.
umienko is another story: it's nice to see the charas animated and they have really good voices BUT the problem is the story adaption, it give non sound novel readers a totally wrong picture of the series....

It's true that the Higurashi anime was really enjoyable, the first season tended to cut out a lot of plot-building, emotional scenes.
Also, the PS3 version is gorgeous! I love the fact that they added voices to it! I'm thinking of getting the "PS3 Tweak" version of Umineko when I get around to buying it. The original sprites are... just plain ugly.

Thank you dear. It just boosts loading times up a lot! :3

Back to the topic at hand... why don't they make more Umineko!!! There is still so much more from the novels I want to see in the anime! I did NOT get enough Lucifer love.... I loved the stakes... not so much the siestas..BUT SO MUCH LEFT OUT!!!
