This project dates back to January 2016 when I worked on episodes 01-12 and stalled the project for some reason which had something to do with Blurays and a joint project, but that didn’t turn out well since fansubs died and so, nothing happened.
Until May 2018 that is; with the release of ep13 I continued Higurashi as planned.
And stalled it after that episode. Again.
And here we are – almost four years after the release of the first bunch of episodes – at the point where I can (hopefully) put Higurashi into my ‘Complete Projects’ folder – yay.
The subs feature somewhat improved R1 scripts with some minor to major edits by me (mainly line-splittings), the OVA goes with the [Hauu~] release (aligned to the main series’ styling).
There are no plans of doing the BDs because they suck.
So today morning, I smoked a huge bowl and went ahead to familiarize with this series.
Ep14 was half done at that point, so I worked myself through it… and more episodes.
Originally there were no plans to do any subbing today, but yeah there you have it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Since a single episode doesn’t require much work albeit the source being R1, this won’t take long.
Oh; and K-On S02 will follow – not ItsuTen – because effort.
I have no idea why I discontinued this project, but well, here I go again.
This release uses modified (retimed, tsd, styled etc.) R1 subs from the DVDs (Dialog+OPED), R2 video and comes with fabulous FLAC audio – yay.
Coincidentially, Higurashi uses the same Dialog font styling as Sasameki Koto… I dunno why.
A short notice concerning Higurashi Kira: I have no idea if I’ll be doing it, but there’s always a chance that I jump at season 2 some day.
Same goes for the OVAs.
Please don’t ask me.
I… wouldn’t eat that.
The broccoli looks like it’s raw.
On one hot summer day in 1983, a transfer student named Maebara Keiichi comes to a peaceful rural village in Hinamizawa.
There, he befriends his classmates Rena, Mion, Rika, and Satoko.
Accepted as a full-fledged member of the “club,” Keiichi and the gang plays all sorts of activities ranging from card and board games to hide-and-seek.
But just as Keiichi was beginning to be assimilated in simple rural life, he stumbles upon the dark history of Hinamizawa.
As Keiichi dives deeper into the mystery, he finds that his new found friends may not be all what they claim to be.
Higurashi was terrifying the first time I watched it.
It created a distrubing and gruesome atmposphere that I hadn’t seen in anime until then, so I marathoned the two seasons within three days.
Even more am I disappointed that, eleven years later, still nobody’s managed to provide me with a decent release.
Subs are based on R1 subs with additional improvements by yours truly.
The recently released ‘BDs’ are not worth doing them.
Now, go eat up before Reina takes the release home.
