Higukai Ends


Happy ending all round, yay for Rika and gang for managing to alter fate.

Still, Higukai manages to end with a bang, with that short sequence of an adult resembling Rika appearing before a young Takano and possibly altering her fate as well. Coupled with the announcement of a 3rd season for Higurashi… looks like the mysteries of Hinamizawa will continue.


Frederica or Furude Rika?

    I still remember at one point Rika wanted to live so she could grow taller and grow breasts. I guess she only managed the former ^^;

    Shin: she may have grown the latter, albeit not as.. ahem… prominently as some people. Still, she’s cute in a long-faced sorta way, although the art style reminds me a bit of 80’s anime (Macross comes to mind).

    Rika’s adult form reminds me of Misa, in the long hair and pointed face. That’s why I said her character design reminds me of the 80’s. I still rather like the long hair, though….

    Kuro: Correct, there are a few more arcs left. Matsuribayashi-hen is supposed to be the ending for all the PC-port games. However, the TRUE ending is supposedly Miotsukushi-hen, which is the arc for the enhanced PS2 remake (and therefore supercedes Matsuribayashi-hen).

    It makes me wonder if they’ll animate it though, given the fact that Matsuribayashi-hen provided incredible closure for the series. Though… I am looking forward to an animated version of the kooky Daybreak arc.
