I'll admit at first I was a bit turned off by certain scenes of this anime (i.e. Satoko's stabbing and Shion's nail removal scenes) however many people have told me that Higurashi has a unqiue story to it so I decided to give it a chance and now I'm a really big Higurashi fan.

I'd give a link to one of my favorite Higurashi videos but it does contain some violence and I'm not sure if WOOHP would allow this. sweat.gif



So do we have any Higurashi fans here?

^Don't post the link, but I think talking about it would be ok. I haven't seen this anime, unfortunately.

I have a couple of friends who are really into this anime, and I even tried watching it once, despite being warned about the blood and gore, and I'm sorry to say that I did not enjoy it at all. Just a little too disgusting for me, thank you.

But it did look like a good anime, at least for anyone who doesn't mind seeing internal organs being ripped out of someone's body. =X

I find it kinda funny how you call Higurashi disgusting yet have a guy x guy sig and avatar.

Gotta love irony.

Yeah I don't see the irony. Being disgusted by gore and not being confident enough in your sexuality to look at a g-rated sig are not the same things. Note, if someone doesn't like your show, so what? You're 23 years old, not 10. Try to be a bigger man, please.

Honestly, I don't like gore in anime and cartoons. I'm fine with it in live-action stuff like Suspiria though, oddly enough. I guess it may depend on execution. I honestly haven't seen many successful horror anime, so maybe that's some how related psychologically.

It doesn't bother me that this person doesn't like Higurashi, if they don't like it more power to them. However Yaoi/Yuri is absolutely disgusting and in some cases even more so than blood and gore. So yes calling Higurashi disgusting while having a Yaoi sig/avatar IS irony.

I'm not too big on gore in anime/cartoons either and in some parts Higurashi does go a bit too far but I try to look past that. Anyway, there's really no point in arguing as we have different opinions on anime so lets just leave it at that. smile.gif

It is not absolutely disgusting. That is your personal view-point, it's not absolute and it's not going to be ironic to anyone other than yourself either. I don't see how you can equate harmless human affection and love to violent death via dismemberment, but that's your messed up world view, not mine, not Rainy's, not most of the people here, and else where. Your argument here is pretty self-centered. This comparison I think also suggests either homophobia or immaturity. I don't expect everyone or anyone to like yuri/yaoi, but give me a break here. If that's your opinion you should probably give up on anime all together since pretty much every anime that exists post-1983 has some kind of homosexual theme in it some where.

Ok, that's fine. I won't continue this debate either. But you're the one who interjected hostility towards another poster into this thread in the first place. Just keep in mind not everyone will agree with you or like what you like.

Yes I understand that and as I've said it didn't bother me that someone doesn't like the same thing I do. Yaoi/Yuri on the other hand I do not think highly of. >__>


Anyway lets get back on topic here.


Edit: Fixed typo. I swear PSU has caused me to typo more.
