Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Kira OP HD FULL [Happy! Lucky! Dochy]

The scariest part of Higurashi...
#45 to #39 - tvfreakuk (12/14/2013) [-]
This was the first thing I saw of Higurashi, and decided to watch it based on this, without knowing what the show was about.
I was expecting nothing but cutesy slice of life...
I was very wrong.

Is this some botched attempt at maggot based wound treatment?
User avatar #46 to #41 - HAMMATIMEZ (12/14/2013) [-]
This eye will be an actual spoiler to the show

It is the infection that turns all of the people afflicted by it into rage fueled murderers. The maggots and insects grow in the blood or something and slowly kill the victim by making them scratch their skin until they bleed to death or otherwise can't handle it.
#52 to #46 - thundagawd (12/14/2013) [-]
No, that's not it.   
   
 The actual cause of their transitions into psychopathic killers is the result of the Hinamizawa syndrome. It was first discovered back during the war, it's an illness that caused the afflicted soldiers began to suffer from sudden extreme paranoia, believing that killing those around them would be the only way to make sure no one could kill them first. Eventually the virus found a host, in this case, the Furude family, and the virus eventually traveled trough the family line, making the family members "Queen/King carriers" who emitted a pheromone that suppressed the illness (Everyone who has lived in Hinamizawa is afflicted by the illness, but as long as they remain in the village, the pheromones of the King/Queen carriers prevents the syndrome from taking hold, which is why Rena went berserk when she initially moved out of Hinamizawa before the start of the anime, and was eventually forced to return, which cured her, as she was back in the presence of the King/Queen carriers).   
   
As for the maggots, it's a symptom of stage 4 (or 5, I forget how many stages there are) Hinamizawa syndrome, in which the afflicted begins to suffer from extreme itchiness in the neck area, causing them to believe maggots are crawling through their bloodstream (The maggots aren't actually there, it's all in their head) and the itchiness causes them to scratch/claw away at their neck until they eventually tear open their jugular veins and kill themselves (Which is why victims of the syndrome are always found dead with their throats torn out)   
   
This particular scene happens when Shion injects Rika with a concentrated dosage of stage 4/5 Hinamizawa syndrome, immediately propelling her into the "maggot stage", and she smashes her neck against the knife in an attempt to claw out the maggots (It's not really shown in the anime, but in the manga, after she busts open her neck, she tries to scratch out the inside of her veins with the knife before dying

True, although something still bugs me... The theory that everyone would go insane if they get too far from the Queen carrier was initialy developed by Takano and it seemed highly plausible in the case of Rena, although, Rika killed herself in the Wataganashi arc and after 48 hours there was no sign of agression from the villagers. Does this prove that Takano's theory was wrong?

User avatar #81 to #73 - thundagawd (12/14/2013) [-]
It had something to do with the fact they were all close to Rika, and her death/disappearance had a greater mental impact on her friends so the syndrome took over them first, the syndrome usually takes longer to affect a normal individual, we never see the villagers go aggressive because Takano's death squad always kills off all the villagers after Rika's death to prevent an outbreak (The outbreak OVA is actually when the virus takes hold before Rika's death, and Takano's death squad doesn't show up, so the Villager's are the one's who go aggressive first and the main characters have to defend themselves against all the insane villagers) , like in the Curse Killing & Disaster Awakening chapters, but they don't show that happen in every arc, it's implied in the later episodes/chapters though.
User avatar #84 to #81 - youmotherfather (12/14/2013) [-]
Thanks for the response!
I get it now. Also, why do you think Miyo's missing in the Outbreak OVA and Dr. Takano is still alive? I mean, in every chapter thus far her parents were killed in the train/bus accident and she was adopted by Takano and he commited suicide afterwards. Am I missing something obvious here? My guess is that this is a continuation of the last scene of Kai where Bernkastel saves them, Miyoko keeps her real name: Tanashi and she never met Takano. It may be another board game (see Umineko no naku koro ni) for the witches to play, but this is but an asumption. What are your thoughts?
Reply only if you wish too...
User avatar #86 to #84 - thundagawd (12/14/2013) [-]
My guess is it's just another universe where things are more different than usual, like in the Dice Rolling Chapter in Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Rei. In that universe, Keiichi never moved to Hinamizawa, Rika & Satoko's parents were still alive, Satoko hated Rika's guts, Miyo's parents were never killed in the accident so she was never adopted by Dr. Takono, etc. My guess is Outbreak was just another reset where the universe had more discrepancies than the ones she went through in the main story, so things played out far differently (Miyo's Death squad never showed up to contain the virus since her parent's probably never died in the accident, so there was nothing to prevent the outbreak)
User avatar #87 to #86 - youmotherfather (12/14/2013) [-]
Good point, although don't forget that the world in the Dice killing Chapter was just a dream and Rika never actually died in that one.

User avatar #53 to #52 - HAMMATIMEZ (12/14/2013) [-]
Oh yeah, it's been a while. But didn't Rika do that just to **** with Shion, basically not letting Shion kill her?
User avatar #56 to #53 - thundagawd (12/14/2013) [-]
If I remember correctly it had something to do with Shion being kept outside the village due to where she attended school that made her condition more unstable, and when the teddy bear thing happened with Mion (Which hurt her feelings), it pushed Shion over the edge, sending her into her rampage. After Shion learns about the previous Watanagashi murders (Satoko's parents, Rika's Parents, Satoshi's disappearance, etc.) she eventually goes to confront Rika about what happened to Satoshi (Since she was pretty much in love with him), and Rika tries to inject Shion with the antidote to buy more time, but Shion, overtaken by the syndrome, is paranoid about what's in the syringe, so she stabs Rika with it, but being the Queen Carrier, is has a reverse effect on her, rather than curing the syndrome, it propels her into the terminal stage and causes her to kill herself, or at least that was how I remembered it happening in the manga, I forget what they said during that scene in the anime.

Is the manga much different to the anime? I was never really into manga when I was watching Hig
User avatar #85 to #57 - youmotherfather (12/14/2013) [-]
The manga is more detailed, but if you want to know absolutely every detail of the story I recommend reading the sound novels. You will spend days on each arc but it's worth every minute of it, I promise. Also I recommend using the PS2 patch for the character models as the original ones aren't that great, not unbearable, but they can ruin the mood sometimes.
User avatar #58 to #57 - thundagawd (12/14/2013) [-]
It's pretty much the same as the anime, but with more detailed explanations/scenes (Like the scratching out the insides of her neck with the knife scene, they don't show that in the anime, she just collapses after stabbing herself. It basically just helps to better understand the context of the scenario once you figure out what the Curse of Oyashiro-sama/Hinamizawa Syndrome actually is) . Each arc in the manga is split into roughly 2-4 volumes depending on the arc, and the volumes themselves are ******* massive (Each volume of the manga is equivalent to about 2-3 episodes in the anime). The manga also has more side stories than the anime, since the anime hasn't gotten around to animating all the side stories yet (I don't even know if they will, though I kind of hope they do)

User avatar #44 to #38 - foliap (12/14/2013) [-]
anything's better than higurashi no naku koro ni kai. Not that bad from what I've seen so far. I... i think it runs as a separate unfolding of events to kai. you know, with higurashi's wierd story arc set up.

I....loved higurashi no naku koro ni kai....... : (
User avatar #54 to #44 - thundagawd (12/14/2013) [-]
I'm assuming you meant No Naku Ni Kira* (No Naku Ni Kai was part 2 of the main series)

And the outbreak arc is basically an inverted scenario when the Hinamizawa Syndrome takes hold, but affects all the villagers rather than the main characters, so rather than constantly trying to kill each other, they have to work together to survive against all the infected villagers.
User avatar #82 to #54 - foliap (12/14/2013) [-]
I meant kai. I really hated what they did with the second season. It lost all the atmosphere that made the first season so good.
User avatar #51 to #44 - veryevilmen ONLINE (12/14/2013) [-]
it is better than higurashi kai but... I mean you could say at least the holocaust wasn't as bad as higurashi kai and technically you would be right but its such a low standard that that doesn't mean much.
#83 to #51 - anon (12/14/2013) [-]
I think outbreak doesn't live up to ni at all, but it is miles better than kai and .it's great since it's a different timeline of events, so we can pretend kai never happened. I think outbreak isn't that bad imo
