I like Another more... It was a real good and eerie anime. Hulu used to have Higurashi as When They Cry but it doesn't look like they have it anymore.... too bad I never got around to finishing it and I'll only want to watch anime on legal sites.

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.




Like explained in the movie: that was all part of the 'curse' in Another. That's why those old people who owned the inn went crazy too.

Personally I prefer Hell Girl over both of them, but if I had to choose between Higurashi and Another, then hands down Higurashi but I still like Another

Higurashi has the issue of retelling the same story in a different way which is nice to see but the inconsistencies of the art bugs me. While Another has the basis of semi-random deaths with a supposed all powerful curse in the background which falls into final destination category way to much.

Still Higuarshi is effective because "innocent" girls change into monsters. While Another hits you with who and how is someone going to die.

Either way 2 lessons to be learned.
1) Do not trust little girls from villages in the middle of nowhere who are exceedingly bossy.
2) Be careful when walking down the steps with an umbrella.

Ironically that's the exact opposite of the correct lesson trying to be taught by Higurashi. Not trusting your friends is why shit hits the fan every time. The thing is all of the kids are good people at heart but succumb to madness due to perceived isolation

I watched all of Another, but I've only just finished the first Higurashi manga novel. I can't comment on the series as a whole, but it does have a creepy atmosphere ... at times. Higurashi can be pretty scary, from what I've seen, but nothing too scary has happened yet. Mostly just setting up. I WILL tell you that I find it annoying that most creepy scenes so far are interrupted by some moe girls popping in.

I just finished the the first arc of Higurashi

(demoned away)


So far, I do like Another a little better because it doesn't have the annoying little girls being annoying/keeps that serious tone the entire time. . . . but Higurashi is scary.

Another is pretty good, but it does not compare to Higurashi. Higurashi is among my favorite anime, one of the most memorable things I have ever watched, and is the most I have ever been into any mystery.

In my opinion, Higurashi was the better, scarier series. If you watched the whole thing, then rewatch it- you'll see what I mean.
Another... was just creepy, in my opinion. Scary, yes- but mostly creepy.

I would say Higurashi was the better one. I mean that first arc, Jesus that was scary.

Though I did think that Another get scary towards the end.
