As most of you know now, Higurashi is going to be on live action (mixed emotion inside me, I don't want to clap or put my thumbs down). For me, I think it's both good and bad.
As for the good part, that people might see the movie interesting, and then go into anime/manga/original light novel (like how the live action movie became a great commercial for NANA or Death Note).
For the bad part, I kind of see, is that since the higurashi violence (mostly seen in season 1 for anime) might be too much for people to see in the live action, mass media might bombard some attacks again like when that incident happened (the girl in kyoto causing School Days and Higurashi Kai to cancel some broadcasting (don't even want to remind it here though, sorry), due to Media attacks (I bet from Koumin Party)). Especially this time, with a nation wide thing (instead of the anime in small stations), I don't know what those stubborn adults might say or maybe the Media trying to open the old wound again...


sorry for the long talk, but what do you think about the live action movie? feel free to give your opinion and post up news, pics, etc.

I hope it's good because I heard that it's the first time acting for a lot of the actors. O.o

About the violence... at least they aren't doing a more violent arc like Meakashi. But then again... the episode that was delayed because of that girl was Minagoroshi (IIRC) which wasn't that violent...

They'll probably just give it a 17+ rating or something like they did with the other Higurashi stuff...

Well, lot of them are first time actors, but most of them are used to TV stuff, so they shouldn't be too stiff...
but I gotta say, here are my complains about the casting...
1. Actor for Cloud is too young
2. Actor for Tomitake is too "musai"
3. Actor for Rika and Satoko is too old to be them (don't look like elementary kids to me)
and most of all,
RIKA HAS HER B--BS (or Breasts to be more polite) ALREADY ADULT SIZE. THAT WAS ONE OF HER ANBITION TO OVERCOME THE FATE... THE ACTOR FOR RIKA ALREADY HAS LARGER ONE THAN THE ADULT RIKA!!!!!!

yeah, especially with low budget and with all the Japanese DEMOCRAT feminist politicians trying to attack otakus and their culture (like trying to put restrictions on anime, manga, galge, etc. because "animes and galges makes person mentally ill and triggers all rapes and molesting of children under age 18" and they actually had to say that person who plays galge is no longer be conciously right as a human... Damn, so just because I play clannad, Kanon, Air, Little busters, and all the Key and other those kind of games, I am automatically no longer a human mentally...

Well of course netizens, including otakus and non otakus did argue over this on the official website of MADOKA YORIKO, one of the Japanese Democrat, but without replies, she closed the blog and the bulletin board down and ran away to not to get criticized anymore for the election...

my Bad for actually like bringing this thing personal, but yeah, because of these pressures right now, it is hard for Higurashi and other series to get their best performance...

I dont want to see it, if I think it is bad then it will like kill me inside. Higurashi is my favorite anime/game and I dont want to see it done badly. If it had good actors and good props/special effects then i would want to see it. =\ well i might wind up seeing it eventually.
