Alright, I do not really have anything to say, so we are just going to get right on into this episode. Although I did like how this one came out, it was rather enjoyable, but more on that later. I would also like to note that I unintentionally took almost a month break between starting and finishing this review, but still plan on continuing the show. Due to that this review is much shorter than normal.
Three episodes in well, this show isn’t bad, but it isn’t great either. The humor is certainly keeping me coming back. But I do not know yet, hopefully I can keep going through the series. For right now I will continue through. So, let’s get right into it.
Alright, episode two, and well, it was alright. I am not completely hooked on the show, but I am also certainly will watch the next one. There hasn’t been anything that has pushed me away from watching it. This episode is much like the previous episode where there are three different stories. I won’t be surprised if this tends to be a trend, at least early on. Two at least relate closely to one another while the last one is somewhat tied, into her whole “I am going to find a mana crystal” this episode. So, let’s get right into it.
Wow, it has been a long time since I done a review. Or a post for that matter, about 6 months since my last post and 8 months since my last review. I won’t go into why I took that long of a break, instead I will actually talk about this show, as it is a review and all and would be weird to talk about something else entirely, even if that is what I do in the introduction part.
It has been awhile since I did a review, to the point where I am now an arc behind. Aside from that I really was annoyed how I fell so far behind. Either way, time to get right into it.
Alright, new arc which means new timeline, and everything was reset from the previous arc. Meaning that this will have a different ending than the last time. I can also say that this is a remake, with them clearly aiming for a different ending for the first series, as this adapts the second arc in the series that deals with Mion’s “twin sister.” Anyway, more on that in a bit, this one will have spoilers. So, just going to say it now, Shion is real and is Mion’s sister. But, well, for all I know this series is going to do something weird and change it so Mion just has multiple personalities. But I will talk more on that towards the end of the arc to avoid spoilers.
Alright the first arc is done I think I can say that this is a remake, with one, Rika knowing it is a remake and will have moments where she tries to change the outcome, and two, as this episode made apparent, slightly different outcomes to the original. Although maybe that was due to Rika’s tampering in trying to change the outcome. So, maybe something bigger might happen as the series progresses. Either way, let’s get right into it.
So, um, yeah, this episode really is coming off as a sequel reboot. I say that because, it is falling the first arc of the series but at the same time it is bringing up an important plot point that would be known after this arc, that time travel is heavily involved. It also feels like they will be pulling off more twists, as, it feels like it is going down a whole new route. Still, it is too soon to say. Depending on what happens in the next few episodes I might start going back and bulk reviewing the first series. But, there are no promises. I am still going to do my best to avoid spoilers. But I will explain one plot point in this review. I will mark it as a spoiler though. So, with that in mind let’s get started.Continue reading “Higurashi When they Cry New Episode 2 Review: Sequel? Reboot? Both?”
Well, this is certainly something I did not expect this year, oddly fitting too since this series kind of deals with pandemic, also, I will find it really hard to not spoil this series for what happens in the future. Anyway, I am back, to review stuff again. This time I am reviewing the remake of one of my favorite series, Higurashi. I know a few years ago I was planning on reviewing the original, kind of glad I did not since now I can watch it and talk about it over time. I also have no idea how long this is, seeing that the original anime is 50 episodes long, so, I might be here for some time, which I am fine with. Enough about that, time to get into the show.
