I'm kinda satisfied with how the series ended up already... I don't want the show to get a new season just because the fans just want it... It'll ruin the anime eventually, and would probably become more fan oriented rather than sticking to it's main plot...


I think so too. I just wanted an OVA or something, but a third season's seems a little too much. Either way, I'll watch it when it comes out.

Yeah, I kind of agree...
There was so much in this arc about how this is the last world, last chance etc.
So this third season contradicts that...
Ah well I'll jut take more Higurashi...

Lol. :p I think there was a "real ending" in the PS2 game.
Also, there's one chapter that comes right after Matsuribayashi-hen that they could do.

^^ I agree. What happen in epi 24 of Kai isn't the "actual ending", and the fact that what happened at the ending of 24 proved that some questions have yet to be answered...

But I hope it doesn't screw up Higurashi one of my favourites of all time... We have already seen trashy sequels like Da Capo II... >_<

any one who has watched the last episode click this link
http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=31811

i'll get to the point, having read the translations in that link it makes me think that they may have had a third season planned for quite a while now. Meaning it might not be a spin off or an adaptation of the chapters the didnt use but a continuation of the story. Possibley with a new charictor and filling in the last pieces of the mystery around oyishiro sama and Frederica Bernkastel.
I hope so anyway
Although since i havnt played the game's other people way know something i dont.

I didnt realy want to post spoilers but oh well


From what i've heard from other people is that the woman is not an older Rika but a new charictor called Frederica Bernkastel if you dont know who this is check the post obove yours. I have no idea if this is true and the fact that she looks exactly like an older and even has a simaler name (Furude Rika, Frederica) makes me think there must be some conection. Hopefully who she is and why she saved the younger version of Takano will be explained in season 3

Are you guys sure of this... At some point, I am hoping to see more of Higurashi, but I hope these rumors are true and won't turn out something like the SEED rumor, Gundam SEED Eternity, being the third SEED installment. Now we know that SEED Eternity isn't real since 00 appeared already...

So far none of this is any thing more than rumors and speculation.
as far as i've seen there is no clear source for the "girl at end is Frederica" rumor.
so it may turn out to be completely wrong and that the ending was just Rika going back in time

The Game's ending seems somewhat "different" than the Anime's ending. In the game ti says Hanyuu dodged the bullet with her magic, than Rika created a "miracle" and she grabbed the bullet, later revealing it to Hanyuu. But this season was a bit disapointing, I know this wasn't mean to be bloody, but Akasaka when fighting that other macho guy that worked for Takano... Why didn't he kill him? The fuck, you're going to just let this ass hole live, who's trying to destroy a whole village!? And the part at the hospital, for real now.. shoot the bastards or something.. *sigh* Oh well.. they like being nice guys.

Note: Spoilers

According to my sources, it was most likely that it WAS Frederica. If you played the Uminko (When the seagull cries), it explains that everything that happens in Higurashi is merely a game played by two 'witches'(beings that exist in a world where concepts such as fate and probability can be visualized), called Lamdadelta, Bernkastel, and there is also a third witch called Beatrice. Takano and Rika respectively are the equivalent of their pawns. Lambdadelta/Takano has the ability to murder with a 99% chance of success, but Bernkastel/Rika possesses the power to "keep throwing the dice if she has a chance to win". As a result Bernkastel/Rika wins eventually, though it does take her about 100 years to do so. The third witch, Beatrice is the only witch in the actual story part of the first Umineko arc. Bernkastel appears in a behind-the-scenes-esque portion and her fight with Lambdadelta is only mentioned in passing.There's still a big chance the whole witches thing (apart from Beatrice) is just some out-of-character easter egg kind of deal and of it having no real impact on either Umineko or Higurashi's storyline. Especially since Higurashi is fiction within the Umineko story as well.

This just made Higurashi a whole lot more confusing.

I have no idea what to expect, I mean for the most part they have tied up all of the lose ends. Honestly I love Higurashi, but it is possible to have too much of a good thing. But since they are doing a third season I hope that they follow Miyo Takano or that a new secret about Hinamizawa comes to light. Who knows maybe Miyo Takano will be able to cure the villagers and achieve her dream? Or maybe Satako’s brother will come back from the hospital?
