**WARNING: Looks like the Higurashi New marketed as a remake was bait all along. This is a sequel* to the original series https://trakt.tv/shows/when-they-cry-higurashi.** Since it's based on a visual novel with different routes repeating events are expected which is why they were able to mislead with the premiere but the second episode reveals a twist of the series and references being set after the events of Higurashi. They also changed the title from "New" to "Gou" ζ₯­... *\*What exactly it is we cannot say for sure right now but you are definitely not getting a fresh start.*


Middle of season 2 /sotsu and it's getting pretty repetitive and boring though.


I haven't watched the old one yet but I can say this that this one was way too boring. Every single episode was too overdramatic and repetitive (literally). I won't recommend this one to anyone.


**Higurashi from the "When They Cry! " saga is a true masterpiece**, even if the last 2 episodes of Sotsu were a bit rushed, I still think that Higurashi is one of the best anime ever made. To understand why Higurashi is a masterpiece, I recommend you to start watching the old series, then continue with the new one (which is actually a sequel of the old one) and you can see that every episode has a meaning and every little thing you see from the very first episode of the old series has a meaning and is logical. I felt so many emotions during the whole series, [spoiler]I felt how much Rika and Satoko suffered for so many years[/spoiler]. The ending concludes the series quite well, I haven't played the games so I don't know if they have the same ending. The music is so well done, you can feel all the emotions in each episode with the opening and the ending [spoiler](especially with the last music in the last episode).[/spoiler] [spoiler]There are still some unanswered questions, I hope they will be answered with (maybe) another series in the same universe.[/spoiler] Thank you for giving us this masterpiece. I will remember this series until I make a new loop :wink:

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
