It's Higurashi - with mahjong?!

by Last Exile » Tue Jun 08, 2010 9:39 am

In other news, a Higurashi arc based on mahjong is being released. For those who have seen/read Higurashi, you should know that this has the potential to be epic.

Now THAT is worthy of new material!

The trouble with the Higurashi Rei ova series was that there were a number of potentially good, creepy manga arcs they could have included if they'd extended the project into a full tv series, such as Onisarashi-hen, Yoigoshi-hen and Utsutsukowashi-hen. There was also the "true" ending of Higurashi, Miotsukushi-hen, which basically is all of the Higurashi question and answer arcs wrapped into one story. But they didn't use any of these.... :?

I've always felt that they were just trying to avoid including any of Ryukish's.... Ryukishiness. I mean, they tried to with the Umineko anime and look how that turned out.
Although I don’t know about the directions at 4:51.
It’s commonly known when you look north in Japan East is to your left. Please don’t try to correct that sentence. It lasts only for a second but I wouldn’t expect a mistake like that.
