    Higurahi main series, yes. Higurashi OVA's, no. Just started Monster myself, seems like it could be one hell of a ride.

    edit...I think the VN looks terrible.. Manga and animu were pretty cool guys though.

    Apparently if you compare the main series (normal and Kai) to the VN they suck. Not in art, obviously, but in storyline. The art in the Higu anime is a trillion times better, but hey, would you rather have a good story or good art? In before "both". Not gonna happen with the When They Cry series.

    Kinda reminds me of Touhou. You play it for the fact that all the characters are girls, the music, etc. but never for the art. ...Though the art done by that other group who teamed up with ZUN was rather pretty.

      22. Never played the VN of Higurashi so I don't have much to say on that.

      I did love the anime and the OVAs without a doubt though.

          VNhags always say that and it's hardly ever true. There were no obvious plotholes, the voice talent was good and the animation was fair enough. Some things were better in the manga and I'm sure things will be better in the VN but Higurashi anime was good.

          Saying something is certainly much better without trying it is also pretty damn stupid.

          Edit - the hands?..... Gear third.

            Not enough VN Anime adapt the bad endings. IT'S ALWAYS THE BEST ENDING THEY ADAPT.

            It's true though like most of the mods never posted here until they were modded just because they could 0 it. Pffft.

            ADAPTING THE BAD END IS ACTUALLY GOOD YAAAY.

              I'VE ONLY HEARD OF ONE ANIME WHERE THEY ADAPT THE BAD ENDING. NOT ONLY IS IT THE BAD ENDING, IT'S THE WORST ENDING YOU CAN GET AND THE KIND YOU WOULD HAVE TO DELIBERATELY PLAY POORLY TO GET.

              Of course, who's chosen to be a Puella Magi is typically favoritism. A human does not necessarily have to be friends with a lot of Puella Magi, but they have to be considered well-liked amongst others and be on good behavior. There are tons of people like that, but of course certain Puella Magi also hate said people and so they get kicked out in the race to become Puella Magi. And then there are those who straightforwardly ask to be Puella Magi or ask that someone else (typically without that person's consent) asks or mentions it. Then that person becomes a nearly impossible candidate for good.

              /in before Kevin
              I hath been summoned. Puella Magi are never chosen out of favoritism, they're chosen out of potential. As in ability. That's almost how ALL magical girl shows work. Nobody works hard or practices for the day they become a magical girl. It just comes naturally to them. Can't see the incubator? Ain't getting asked to sign contracts or form bonds? Tough.

              Also, bad ends are boring most of the time. "Everyone died. Start over." "You didn't get the girl. Start over." Stuff like Higurashi and School Days are few in number. Where "bad ends" are the only possibility for the first seven stories for the former, and where the bad end is so gruesome and shocking, that the good ends pale to them for the latter.

              Guess that's one part I forgot to clarify, mya.

              Corpse Party's bad ends are pretty shocking, too. And so far the "good" paths I've seen (paths that unlock the next chapter for me) are just as bad. And then Hatoful's bad end that leads to a whole new route is pretty horrifying when you first get it. Who knew a bird could do that to a human?

                School Days was what I was talking about. More things need to be like that. There should always be an over-the-top terrible ending that is clearly not what you intended to get in the first place.

                Also, how do I get summoned? o3o

                It depends on the person. In Kevin's case, it's when someone adds "/in before Kevin" or says or does something stupid. In my case, it's usually if someone brings up FT o3o

                  You do not know the number of times I have come across the latest FT chapter or something FT-related whenever I go searching for it o3o 'Course manga-wise that's kinda ruined since I check Mangareader everyday now seeing how I have quite a few ongoing series I'm reading.

                  Mm, I feel lethargic. Doesn't help that I had turkey for dinner ^^;

                    So you do. I might have a One Piece sense, but One Piece isn't really popular on this website. :U

                    So anyway, about visual novels and bad ending being amazing.

                    *does something stupid repeatedly/consistently/with precedent.

                    That part is important. If I was wherever anyone did anything remotely stupid, I'd be all over this site.


                    I'm too hipster for fandoms. I can't get excited over anything because I'm a jaded old man.

                        But with PW characters.

                        0. Because it's been over 48 hours since I last did this.
