Saw that, did you. Haha.

I just don't know if Shaft can do those terrifying faces! Maybe. Shaft, White Fox, I figured maybe Bones.

But Ufotable, which I cannot see happening or working out well. Maybe because they do a lot of VN.


Not in this thread, at least.

I dunno those faces in that CG OP sequence for Mekakucity Actors were pretty scary...

Ufotable... Haha, I want to see the character designs for that.

most likely not. It sold like shit.

Its a very niche show and contrary to popular belief, licencors don't care about making you happy if it doesn't make them money (physical releases).

The best bet to watch it legally would be to convince CR to pick up the streaming license to the complete series.


That's a good idea, dude! I think we could get CR on board. They already have the rights to plenty of obscure, niche shows.

*headscratch*

Why are people talking about the anime when the VN is commercially available?

A friend gave me files of the second season, but they're glitchy and the audio skips like crazy, so it's inconvenient to watch. I do want to watch it really bad, though. I'll either have to watch it muted and miss out on half the experience or find another way to watch it. Also.. I don't know much about animation companies, I just threw one out there that I liked. I realize now that it was a bad suggestion.

So, I'm sure you're all aware that Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni (When they Cry) is unlicensed. Funimation once had it, but it didn't sell well, so they let it's contract expire, and because of this many are doubtful that any other company will save it. I watched Higurashi season 1 a few months ago and it was amazing, and it DESERVES saving. It's one of those anime like no other. Truly unique. I really hope one of two things happen in the near future:
1. It gets saved
or
2. It gets remade (preferably by studio ufotable)
I hate that this anime has to be so obscure and hard to obtain/watch. I haven't even watched the second season myself because it's so hard to find. I might have to just go to Japan in order to buy the series. What do you guys think of this whole mess? Should Higurashi be saved? Remade? Or will it never be able to sell well enough for anyone to be interested enough to license it?


I think it has the perfect chance of getting re-licensed over here now that the games are all being released on Mangagamer and Steam. If the games sell well enough people will notice and begin to wonder why it isn't available over here.

ufotable remake higurashi? Iono, I think Shaft would be perfect for a remake. Can you imagine a bunch of crazies with insane head tilt plot development?! Just take my money if Shaft were ever to do so


If shaft did it, I would worship them forever! (more than I already do, anyways)

Shaft would be perfect!

One Word...

Money.

If it didnt do well on sales during Funimation time then no one will and its been 8 years since first released, its the reality of things in the industry. And its old news but if the games do well in sales.. maybe.

All we got is 26 episodes and 3 OVA .

If they do, do a remake, I hope they keep it in the same format as they did with the original. Go through each arc confused and they let it all fall into place as it goes on. That was the beauty of it

Higurashi season1 and 2 was great. It would be great if it gets licensed.

VN's like Higurashi and umineko made by 07th Expansion are pure gold.
