Higurashi was more horrifying, Another was more of a mystery.

It's more the reverse in my opinion. Another is more closely a horror story. The mystery involved with it really isn't meant to be solved. They give you only enough foreshadowing to make it so that things make sense in the end, but with no way to really actually solve it yourself. Higurashi and Umineko on the other hand are mysteries at their core. The primary focus on those shows is to find out why everything is happening the way it is and the entire shows are riddled with clues for you to try and figure out what the hell is going on. In story reasons aside, its the reason you are presented with the same scenarios over and over.

I actually like both shows alot, but I think Another is a better horror anime because it is more closely a horror anime, while Higurashi is more of a (horribly cruel and twisted) murder mystery. I want to stress that I think that they are both awesome though and I recommend both to be watched.

You can not really compare those two. Higurashi seems all about people with serious brain disorders, whereas Another tries to aim more to place itself in the mystery genre.

The last episode ruined it for me.






I was actually pretty satisfied with the ending. The way how the atmosphere seems so chaotic then suddenly calm.

Like I said, the show was decent until the last episode.
Everyone acted so dumb and panicked like brainless monkeys.

I really should get back to watching Higurashi (dropped it mid-way or somewhere around there) and never got to watch season 2 (I know, I know, that's where they explain everything). Another felt like an anime version of Final Destination but with an actual plot and a mystery. The reason everyone went insane at the end wasn't because they were stupid (well, some were), but fear (as in, fear of dying) can drive people to do stupid things, we should all know that by now (not to mention they're middle schoolers, so they SHOULD be scared and going insane). The ending was conclusive and I'd much rather have a conclusive ending than an open-ended one. I can't really say anything about Higurashi since I know so little about it (besides the total wtf moments and torture/murder scenes). Both shows were about the same entertainment-wise for me, but Another kept my attention longer than Higurashi.

Definitely Higurashi in my opinion. Another is at times unintentionally funny which kind of destroys its horror aspect.
