I personally prefer Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (i.e. the first season). It has a lot more horror and mystery to it, which is a plus. Also, it's pseudo supernatural elements are rather dark and demented, where as they've been dispelled in the second season, leaving the remaining supernatural elements all too lighthearted (i.e. Hanyuu).

Well, I like them both for different reasons. The first season was amazingly dark and mysterious. But I like how the second season is beginning to explain things. If I had to pick one, though, I'd pick the first.

I really like both, as said before 1st is dark and mysterious and even though the same, but not as much, can be said for the second it does give some long awaited answers. I really love the songs but my fav is opening for Kai.

Well it's hard to say. For all intents and purposes, they are the same series. But I have to go with the first season because it is just put together in such a unique and pervese way that I had to watch the whole thing through. The second season is much more of an answer season.

i prefer higurashi no naku koro ni because of the action and blood it shows that sumtimes there isnt a happy ending and that things will not always be alright but i also like kai becuse it shows how teamwork can overcome anything and if we unite together and i luv the evil laugh or the crazy laugh idk why its just cool the first series also has more suspence than the 2nd one and u never know how the story will come out u know they will die but how why who kills this time .^^ i luv this anime so much

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. (First Season) The killer lolis were what made me watch this anime in the first place. In Kai it's mostly talk, which is a bit boring.

But considering that the two most violent arcs in the first season are actually answer arcs, (and originally part of Kai), I guess I like Kai better. Also I like Minagoroshi.

Depends. First season showed us a lot of mystery, backstabbing, and plotting going on and while the second season wasn't all that the first season was, I'd think it was intentional since Kai will at least try to attempt to explain everything what was going on in the first season to the extent that they would also have to include an anime-only chapter. Besides, the second season was full of moe-moe and of Hanyuu (she sounds a lot like Kanon's Ayu, thanks to Yui Horie) so it's fine too.

i like higurashi no naku koro ni kai because it actually starts the real plot of the story, but the first series does start you off with the awsome horror movie feel that makes you fall in love with the show.

I prefer Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. It had more blood and mystery to it, and it was alot more interesting. Not saying that I don't love Higurashi Kai, but yeah the first season was better in my opinion.

I love Higurashi Kai, wonderful. But Higurashi Ni, man the blood, the killings...it was SO good!
I like Kai, but I have one little complaint about it...It takes forever to get anywhere! Like witht he most recent arc, 9 episodes. 9 episodes, all with only one reall 'arc' to it. You see, by 'arc' I mean the potential it had to become a question arc. It I'm spending 9 episodes on something, I don't want one 'arc' diffused, I'd like at least 2 potential arcs develop, then be diffused. I just felt like that arc wasted a lot of time.
Higurashi Ni, never wasted time, namely because it didn't have anything to waste time on. It was awaken, Get pissed, people die, everyone dies, the end, Next arc!
I enjoyed the fast pace of Ni, but the fact that we learn so much in Kai maes up for the pace.
