With the announcement that Higurashi is now available on Hulu for streaming, and with the lack of an official discussion page, I have taken it upon myself to start one, because these Best Girls need to be better known.

This is a turn of events that calls for, nay, demands a marathon.

I bought the blu rays, for nostalgia, and now that I'm older I can really see the low budget-ness of the title. Either way It still hasn't gotten old for me.

Odd that Sentai have made this available on Hulu, but not on TAN (and it doesn't appear to be scheduled for March). That also means viewers in Canada seeking a legit online experience are left out in the cold.

From a personal standpoint, I would prefer the later, as I have a subscription to the latter, but not the former. Thankfully, I viewed it on DVD back when Funimation had it, so I probably won't be re-watching any time soon.

Kai will be another matter, however, as I originally saw it only as a fansub back on CR, and the presentation at that time was rather lo-res.

Are the blu rays actually better than dvd for Higurashi?

I should hope so. They are supposed to be in 1080p. In terms of features and things, I actually didn't get around to looking at it yet.
