Closet homosexual forgot he feel in love with a mentally I'll, murderous, and multiple personality syndromed tranny, so said tranny decides to murder his whole family. As a result the first 5 games revolve around the mc denying he is a homosexual, and then finally coming out of the closet eventually. This is followed by 3 games of anime battles between westaboos, goats, magical lolis, and furniture. The end result is that nothing really matters because you can make up your own ending and it becomes your truth

Hey guys, I finished the second Higurashi novelization. This one's Watanagashi-hen. Includes alot of the PS2 CGs

puu sh / AmP3s / 1c369b54c9 pdf

Printed version is super expensive, apparently its the cost of printing, but you can get it at

lulu com / shop / product-23644420 html

I had to change printers because Watanagashi is like 100 pages longer than Onikakushi and it went over the printing upper limit for the last printer. You can find Onikakushi at the thebookpatch, just search for higurashi. They're both the same size so they should look nice on a shelf side-by-side even if they're from different printers

I'm one of those suckers that watched it first. I'm glad it introduced me to it, but I still feel like it spoiled my initial experience. I think the manga would be better for a newcomer if the VN is not an option. It doesn't have to be the entire manga, even the first Episode is enough. If that doesn't hook them, don't even bother with them.

>>19035771
All of that shit is just foreshadowing for Ikuko being Yasu. Many deluded goats don't accept it even now.

Ikuko knows everything about the happenings of the island before Battler remembered. Ikuko even wrote EP3 and EP4 to help Battler remember. The two episodes that features both the truth, and a Beatrice desperately wishing for Battler to remember his sin.

Ikuko found Yasu's confession using her "magic". Ikuko is mysteriously rich, and just a mysterious person in general. Ikuko's names mean "raised child". Ikuko loves mystery novels. Ikuko is transfixed by Battler and has practically given her life to support him.

A rich heir who loves Battler and mystery novels, who hides from society, who isn't against changing names or creating personalities, who remembers everything that happened on the island and wrote novels to help Battler remember (novels in which she self-insert as Beatrice). A rich heir with a powerful witch counterpart and a shaky disposition toward reality. I wonder who Ikuko could be?
>>
>>19037178
Well shit. Battler likes mystery novels and is rich too. Is he post rokkenjima Yasu's second personality?

I can't really choose one. There's when Rena first gets the spooky eyes - it really feels like she's staring across the screen into your soul, the shopping mart tip at the end of Onikakushi, and when you find out Takano should have been dead on Watanagashi at the end of ep 2, the state of the village after Keiichi wakes up in Tatarigoroshi, etc. The horror is mostly subtle. And Umineko honestly isn't scary at all.
>>

Whats scary about Umineko is the kind of shit theories some people are reaching for. People actually believing in Rosatrice is the scariest part of Umineko.
>>
>>19037204
>>19037261
The problem with plebeian goats such as you is your violent, willful ignorance.

You have absolutely no explanations for all the knowledge shown by Ikuko, the weird timeline of events, for the reasons behind her writing of EP 3/4, for her strange relationship with Battler, for her name, for another half a dozen argument. Yet you still persist in your stupidity. This takes a very particular type of foolishness.

All your explanations boil down to "Featherine is a witch using magic, don't think too hard about it", which is so goat I am ashamed of you.

Ikuko has knowledge she shouldn't have. She wrote episode she shouldn't have been able to write. She hides herself and her identity, devotes her life to Battler, asks for him to desperately remember, has the same mannerism and interests as Yasu's idealized self called Beatrice, is young, rich, and you are still too much of a goat to connect the dots. You little moronic plebs.
>>
>>19037979
How did Ikuko already have a house and come upon Tohya while driving if her ass just floated to shore as well?
>>
>>19037979
But anon, the meta exists and Featherine is clearly using Ikuko as her avatar.

Your theory makes Yasu look like a psychopath, treats Bernkastel as a literal cat, denies the existence of the series' trademark multiverse and reduces all the meta to fiction, including Higurashi. It doesn't make sense.
>>
>>19038259
B-b-but anon! That doesnt explain Ikuko liking mysteries just like Yasu!
>>
>>19037979
Everything could be easily be explain if Ikuko is the another identity of Featherine who was close to omnipotent. There's conversation between Ikuko and Bern that this is not the first time that Ikuko written the story like in Umineko. It doesn't matter if she was a stranger to Ushiromiyas.

Yeah I believe that Ikuko is a witch using magic. When They Cry universe would be much more interesting and believeable if fantasy world exist as layer above real world counterpart.

You have absolutely no explanations for how Yasu survive despite being tied with gold and less harm than Battler, her connection with Hanyuu, her relationship with Bern ad how she already have a house. Whateevr you look at it it much more believable to think Ikuko as a separate person to Yasu. Yet you still persist in your stupidity. This takes a very particular type of foolishness.
>>
>>19038345
It's being willfully blind to not believe a fantasy world exists in WTC. It's shown in Higurashi with literally no other way to interpret it.

>Your theory makes Yasu look like a psychopath
Dude. Do you even understand the heart? You little goat.

Yasu escaped with Battler on this boat. On this boat, she decided to abandon her Beatrice persona forever. She "killed" her. Battler fell off the boat (foreshadowed from EP 1, kek), and lost his memory.

What were she supposed to do? She has several millions stashed in gold somewhere, enough to buy an identity and a comfortable mansion. What were she supposed to do? Hello I'm the gal you don't remember? The one that tried to kill your family? But not really?

No, she simply protected and nursed Battler, gently trying to make him remember. Trolling him because that's what she likes to do, hiding from society, and publishing new works over the course of many, many years. That's not a psychopathic attitude. That's literally what Yasu would do in that situation.

>treats Bernkastel as a literal cat, denies the existence of the series' trademark multiverse and reduces all the meta to fiction, including Higurashi
Irrelevant. In Umineko you need to accept that every explanation can have a mystery interpretation as much as a fantasy interpretation. The fantasy interpretation of Ikuko makes no sense unless you have the only solid mystery interpretation of Ikuko (that is, she's Yasu).

You dumb goat.

Rudorofu is Maria's dad.

Jooji touches Maria in lewd places while the other cousins aren't looking.

The servants are literal pieces of furniture that were given human form thanks to Goldsmith's magic.

Sakutaro smells like loli cunny for some mysterious reason.

Rosa is Beatrice.

Natsuhi is cheating on her husband with Gohda.

Kumasawa is the original Beatrice but she has amnesia.

Nanjo killed everyone to keep the gold to himself and treat his sick granddaughter.

Erika is Rika in a fragment where she is adopted by a rich family.

Sakutaro is Satoshi and he is "the boy who is the world itself". All of Umineko is Satoshi's comatose dream and he appears as a stuffed animal because he regrets not giving Satoko the teddy bear.

K1 will appear in WTC5 as KEIICHI, the magician of words. Ryukishi will make it look like he's pulling a Bern on us but K1 will be a genuine ally.

Kawabata sniped Battler from his boat at the end of EP4.

Lambda is a cake that Ikuko bought to celebrate braindead wheelchair Battler's birthday. When Ikuko disappears for a minute, her cat comes into the room and pisses on the cake while Battler watches, drooling. Ikuko comes back and starts feeding him the cake.

Nanjo is Gaap.

You may remember the overall events, but there are small details that you were intended to remember going into the answer arcs so that you'd go "ooooh, so that's what happened!", but they are forgotten within a year even if you have a good memory.

It's also harder to care about the characters after so long. You have to get re-attached to them all over again.

I see your point but don't forget that it was originally released over the course of 5 years (you had to wait either 4 or 8 months for a new chapter, at the exception of chapter 4 which was released a whole year after chapter 3)

JAST has stuff like Sumaga and Django announced 7 years ago and they still haven't even set a release date yet.
Sekai Project has quite a few visual novels announced 3+ years ago which aren't even 100% translated and edited.

It may seem slow to you, but MangaGamer is still the ''fastest'' out of all publisher. That isn't saying much since the whole western visual novel scene is a big meme.

Minagoroshi and Matsuribayashi are already 100% translated and edited so it's up to their programmer/hacker, Doddler.

If by any chance the anon on /v/ who requested it happen to be here. If you wanted to read Umineko on your phone there's available working versions in the link.

Anyway to be more on topic I was somewhat disappointed that we didn't really explore the Ushiromiya family's youthful past. We only had little mentions here and there, if we exclude that flashback at the beginning of episode 3 with Eva. I wanted to see how they were when young, especially Krauss. I'd instantly buy spin off manga about his boxing life

Just as Akasaka of 1978 was a novice compared to the Akasaka of 1983, perhaps Amakusa of 1983 was only a novice compared to the Amakusa of 1998 . Maybe losing to an 11 year old girl motivated him? lol.

Kek this is so fitting
>>
>>19046122
I only played the visual novel, but my theory is this:

> Battler managed to get out of the island alive
> Lost Memory
> He stayed at Ikuko's house
> Spent years as Toyha
> 1998 Ikuko begins to see the mensage bottles on the internet
> The memories of Battler begins to return.
> When he remembers what happened, it was too late, Eva was already dead and Ange had committed suicide.
> Battler sees the news of what happened and regrets not having remembered before.
> Decides along with Ikuko to continue the tales as a way to tell Beatrice that he has discovered the truth, and to give a happy ending to his sister.

Just got to the part in the original VN where the first kill happens and the policeman warns you about the Shinozaki. Is the VN really that long and do i have to go through all of it? Pls no spoilers, I've dodged nearly all of them so far.
>>
>>19046232
You're not even halfway through the first episode. It's kind of a slog right now I guess, but it picks up real quick, at least play until the end of Episode 1 before you decide to drop it.
Now get out before you get spoiled.
>>
>>19046232

What the fuck else would you do? You don't skip.
>>

>>
>>19046232
It's long, but it's worth it. You're already halfway through ch1. Do not give up, Fight oh~!
>>
>>19046239
Don't get me wrong, I'm loving it so far, but the length is still pretty intimidating.
>>19046242
Just curious since the anime is only 26 episodes and I was wondering if I could watch that if the VN got too long for me or I wanted to catch up on the plot in case I end up too busy to play the VN.
>>
>>19046257
Don't think of the length of the vn as a whole, think of it as 8 mini vns. Also don't think you have to finish it quickly, it took years for the whole series to come out. Take your time and enjoy it like fine aged wine.
>>
>>19046257
>the anime is only 26 episodes
It has 2 seasons so it's actually 50 episodes
>>
>>19046257
>the anime is only 26 episodes
The anime has a second season, which brings the total closer to 52 episodes. The first season of the anime covers the first six chapters/arcs and rushes through a bit, the second season covers the final two chapters/arcs. The second season had to do some recaps to make up for the crucial details it skipped over in the first season.
Just hang in there. At least try to finish reading the first arc and decide whether or not you want to continue reading it.
>>
>>19046267
>>19046271
Oh, I see how it is then. Thanks for the advice, for a second there I thought they released all this material from the beginning and got a little spooked for what's to come.
>>
>>19046257
I did not watch the anime (hardly watch any) but I tell you that the visual novel will be the best experience. It is much more detailed, and you read the thoughts and perspectives of the characters. According to some friends, the anime skips several events and many things are missing. But it is to be expected, since an anime has a limited time to present something to you.
>>
>>19046291
Only part of the anime for umineko and higurashi that makes it worthwhile is they didn't tip toe around the gore.
>>
>>19046257
The anime is garbage.
>>
>>19046210
Except Tohya and Ange meet in person
alive
>>
>>19046257
If you don't have the time or don't want to put 100 hours into the VN, why not just leave it for when you feel like it? Read it next year or something.

Why are you in such a rush to finish the story that you are considering watching a bastardized clusterfuck of an anime adaptation instead? Just don't read it if you are not into it, dude.
>>
>>19046257
>if the VN got too long for me or I wanted to catch up on the plot
Jesus. Catch up? Are you on a time limit or something?

Watch the anime if you want, but you may as well read a Wikia summary of the entire plot and be done with it.
>>
>>19046232
>do i have to go through all of it?
What do you mean? Of course you do. What kind of person consumes any kind of media by skipping through it? Do you understand the concept of tension building? Do you feel tempted to skip whole minutes in a horror movie to get straight to the jumpscare?

>I've dodged nearly all of them so far
You'll get spoiled if you remain here. There are other sites where you can discuss this stuff without fear of spoilers. I myself will not hold back on the spoilers if I feel like talking about the mastermind or something.
>>
>>19046349
In my theory, that would be a fictional story. Featherine (who by what I understand is a merger of authors Ikuko and Toyha) said in chapter 8 while talking to Bern, who was going to create a happy ending for Ange, as she had promised in episode 6.
>>
>>19046400
That was anything but a happy ending. All she got out of it was knowing that her brother really did die, all Tohya shares is his face. Tohya is just another stranger.
>>
>>19046414
But Battler's consciousness is experiencing that life, so he found happiness in a way.

It's like finding out that your dead grandfather got reincarnated as the handsome son of the richest guy on the planet. He's not your grandpa anymore, but it's still his consciousness and he's living a great life.
>>
>>19046425
Do you love a soup based on the bowl its in? Or based on the soup?

The "consciousness" is just a bowl. Nobody gives a shit about it unless it has the memories, the soup. The recipe for the person you care about.
>>
>>19046447
That finale was made to be as happy and realistic as possible, if they wrote Battler to come a day after Eva had died, with a gift in hand and it turned out fine, it would be a very fanciful ending. Well, it's just my theory. lol.

That's bullshit. From an outside perspective, there may be no difference between an elephant who is actually your reincarnation or an elephant who is someone else's reincarnation. But from your subjective point of view, your personal experience, there is definitely a difference. You are not your brain, you are not your personality and much less a "soul". You are your subjective consciousness.

No. The consciousness is not a bowl. It's the soup.

It's selfish to only care about the memories that make someone who they are. If the consciousness is the same, you should care about them even if the are a completely different person with a completely different brain and personality you dislike. If you could objectively prove that the cockroach you caught swimming in your toilet has the consciousness of your dead father, you would try to make its life easier instead of just killing it with insecticide.

Not that it's Battler's case, though. He's literally the same dude but with brain damage.
>>
>>19046468
So in Umineko Sakutarou's novels are basically One Piece
>>
The ending to Umineko is the perfect answer to Higurashi's.

By writing a series of successful novels about Sakutaro and teaching Maria's magic to kids all over the world, Ange essentially made her into an eternal god. It's exactly what Takano completely failed to achieve.

I don't see how WTC5 can top such a perfect sequel.
>>
>>19046537
If you care only about the consciousness, then why dont you care for each person equally? If memories and personality arent what make a person themselves, why would you favour any one person over another?

There isn't really much in Umineko I'd call scary, because horror isn't what the series is going for. There's a lot of tense and suspenseful moments, but nothing like what we see in Higurashi.

Survived the bombing? Either double suicide by drowning or live long enough to die sad and insane in a hospital bed after being widely considered a criminal for the assassination of your whole family for the rest of your life.

Not in the family conference? Don't sweat it! Suffer during your whole miserable life, survive a suicide attempt and live long enough to get cancer.

Definitely the phone scene in Higurashi.

Bu if I put myself in the protagonist's shoes, the scariest scene is from Higanbana, when Marie's mother goes fucking apeshit and is about to return to the door and open the chain lock. Nonomiya runs the fuck away from that place never to return. I would've done the same.

There is nothing humiliating, disgusting, pathetic or undignified about Satoko having an ass. You can ignore its existence, it's not like she's shoving it on your face. And she'd obviously take a bath before having sex with someone, so her ass would be just as clean as any other part of her body.

It's pretty mindblowing that she's the only character in the entire kakeraverse who has shown her naughty bits to the player. Literally nobody else got a 100% naked sprite.

I know it's not meant to be an arousing sprite. It's used in a specific scene to show that she's so mentally broken and scared that she doesn't care about being seen in her birthday suit if it allows her to run faster. But still. No other character got humiliated and degraded by the events of the story to the point of getting a nude sprite straight out of an eroge.

Umineko is like, the biggest VN ever made, in terms of brute text quantity... Actually, Higurashi Hou for Switch will turn that around with all the extra arcs it has in, unless Umineko for Switch does the same somehow and reclaims the title.

Anyway, just take your time with it instead.

Nah, Rance and France Shoujo only have lots of gameplay elements and a bigger script because of format.

Lines in Umineko are much longer overall as well, and naturally, it doesn't have tons of hentai moaning dialogue either.

My France Shoujo auto clocked at 90+- hours, skipping repeated text.

Rance X had lots of gameplay segments and took me nearly 150 hours however.

I have a hobby for calculating the time in each VN, and Umineko 1-8 still is the biggest, followed by Higurashi Sui.

Pretty sure Hou will break that number, much like the anon above.
>>
>>19054562
France Shoujo doesn't have gameplay, pardon me. I meant that only towards Rance.

Plus, France Shoujo is likely the only actually well written eroge in terms of erotic content, I recommend checking it out, it's like an actual good erotic book.

They had more personality when they were just green and blue shadows. Both of them look way too old here. Rika in particular looks like a generic anime stereotype.

Yeah. You actually have to chose who the culprit is yourself, and you get a bad ending if you get it wrong. It becomes kind of obvious after a while though

It means that in order to solve the mystery you need to take the heart of the culprit into consideration. Don't just try to solve the who and how, the why is just as important.

Higurashi and Umineko, which have more lewdable girls?

Rena or Beatrice?

Rika or Bern?

Takano or Lambda?

Mion or Jessica?

Shion or Ange?

Satoko or Maria?

Hanyuu or Featherine?

Ooishi or Erika?

Rena, she's not a trap

Bern, she seem a bit more physically older also Rika SHOULDN'T BE LEWD

Takano, Lambda's too loli

Mion, she's the original

Both are good for lewd but Shion

No pls I don't lewd loli

Hanyuu in Kotohogushi-hen is so lewdable...

Erika is <good> and all but Ooishi is too sexy
>>

Bern has more breast but I would say Rika is more buttass

I respect your dislike for loli, Butler. But I'm afraid that it means you are a raging homo.
>>
Who would be a better wife later in life Rena or Rika?
>>
>>19058287
Rena. Beato is pretty but not really sexually attractive. I'd fuck the Yasu rather than her.

Rika, but I can't really lewd either of them. I barely know the real Rika and the 100 year old Rika's personality turns me off. She is cute in the same way that a kitten is cute.

Lambda is extremely attractive. Takano was pretty cute as a loli, but she didn't have Lambda's childish personality.

I can't choose.

Ange I guess. But I'm conflicted.

This is a hard one, but I choose Satoko. She's a precocious lewdite.

Definitely Hanyuu. Featherine is anything but lewd.

Unironically Ooishi. NO HOMO. Old men are more attractive in terms of personality than a fucking insufferable sociopath like Erika. And I can't lewd the Erika for some reason.
>>
>>19058729
I don't dislike loli and actually adored them (more as a little sisters)

I don't think they're lewdable at least until they're adult...
>>
>>19058851
I think they are pretty damn lewdable on top of being cute and adorable, but to each their own.

I guess you never liked them as a kid and just fapped to the young teachers and oneesans instead. Because if you did like lolis as a kid and suddenly stopped liking them after you grew up, that's not natural. It's just brainwashing/denial. I hope it's not your case.
>>
>>19058851
>adult
Not everyone is into loli, but you can't tell me with a straight face that 14/15 year old teenagers are not attractive at all. Stop deluding yourself, dude.
>>
>>19058900
There's difference between you like them and think they should be lewd you know

I like Rika & Satoko but I amn't sure I want to see them being lewd
>>
>>19058729
Why do homos rage?
>>
>>19058917
Not OP but you could find them to be attractive yet still don't want to lewd them

It's more of that you want to protect their purity

>>
>>19059018
I'll never understand what Rikafags see in her. Even Irie Pedosuke likes Satoko more.

I love her character and she looks cute, but I find her personality off-putting. She is very mature and feels too real for me to lewd her. I wish we could've seen more of the regular unpossessed Rika.

It's strange, since I find Ange extremely lewdable precisely because she feels so real and human. The human condition of Ushiromiya Ange! Lewd!

This is taken from the author's note (Ryukishi07) in Episode 4 manga.

>Ange refuses to believe in witches and steadfastly holds to her belief that Eva is the killer yet there are scenes where she speaks to Maria and Sakutarou. "What does this mean?"

>I cannot tell you the answer to that question yet. But now that you've read through this episode, I think I can give you a hint.

>"You cannot see it without love."

>Neither Beatrice's true intentions nor the emotions of Eva the survivor, These things cannot be described by others. And without the red text of truth, how do we learn the "truth" in the real world?

>I beseech you to travel the story with an "eye of love" and an "eye without love". I believe that these eyes combined, when you are lost without truth in the real world, will give you just a tiny hint when you need it most."

Umineko's more lewd overall, what with the furniture gals and all.
Beatrice's rack and elegant dress beat Rena.
Bern's shortstack look and smug attitude give her the lead.
Takano beats lambda in sheer lewdness as a slutty nurse, even though Lambda's still better overall
Mion's a better character, but Jessica's got the lewder design.
Shion's got the lewder dress, but Ange's hotter and has the canon nopan thing.
Satoko beats maria hands down. Children should not be that lewd, but nevertheless Satoko is.
Hanyuu, simply because Featherine doesn't have much screentime to be lewd.

It's because of people like you we can't have too many translated nice things in our niche.

Hopefully time will make you change your mind, as there aren't too many non-digital translated VNs around. At least know about the medium before giving such excuses.

I have some links and even the OG games, but I would make sure to give you a "survey password"-ed .rar for the mentality alone. Not doing even that though, google it and it shouldn't be hard anyway.
>>
>>19063418
Not everything I want gets uploaded, so I buy it.
>>
>>19063529
Not to mention Ryuu's VNs are probably the least expensive we have in the market atm, especially in terms of how much quality content is included in them per money spent buying. Compare 20$ Umineko vs 50+$ Clannad and Grisaia with around the same amount of content albeit less production value (for that we have free PS3 patches for them around anyway).

Not that guy, but I want to download the original version of Higurashi and preserve it in my HDD for all eternity. No PS2 crap, no English, no Mangagamer engine, no censorship bullshit, no physical disc. Just the old release from 2002 in digital form (unless Hou includes all of it with absolutely no changes whatsoever, making the old version 100% irrelevant). Where can I get that?

I want to support my favorite author, but I currently have no way to buy exactly what I want from him.

If you have a perfectly normal brain you shouldn't even think about watching an anime as opposed to reading the source material, except if you're really new. If you are, know that 99% of VN anime adaptations are pure trash aimed at people with brain disorders and ADHD that keep them from reading and shouldn't be bothered with.

>>19061306
Say what you want about the original sprites, Takano is absolutely perfect. She's never been done justice in any of the updates. Alchemist Takano lacks presence and Mangagamer Takano looks like a tranny and is looking awkwardly to the side.

"I'll let you do whatever you want if you give me money"

I agree 100% with you. Thankfully I've never had a problem with Ryukishi's art. Takano is perfect in the original.
>>
Is George really a 23 year old virgin? What the fuck is he doing marrying a girl he's never even fucked before? What if it turns out that she's a trap or something?
>>
>>19065172
This. Takano is hands down the best original sprite, only the Anime managed to produce a somewhat satisfying adaptation.
>>
>>19065172
My problem with all of the updated sprites is actually pretty strange. What I dislike the most is how tiny they look in relation to the background/screen size.

When you see a screencap of the original game, it feels complete. Two characters standing next to each other basically fill the whole screen. They don't look like tiny figurines with a lot of empty space between them and above their heads.

>>19063529
Im just fine thanks. If its in english and has a hard copy, I buy it. If the english release doesnt have one, then I buy a copy of the original jp release. All I care about is supporting the authors, so fuck right off with that shit.
>>
>>19065212
The anime seems to have followed the design of the original (I did not watch). In the Alchemist and Steam version they changed a lot of things, the most notable is the Mion "pistol", which they removed for whatever reason.
>>
>>19065226
Why do you care about hard copies?

I personally just want to preserve my stuff digitally with multiple backups, because a disc deteriorates over time and there is nothing you can do about it. And I don't even like the idea of manually ripping the contents of a disc because I may fuck something up or the disc may be faulty or some bullshit. Then I'd be preserving a slightly corrupted version of the VN that is barely distinguishable from a perfect one. I'm paranoid about that stuff.
>>
>>19064879
Download the steam versions, theres an option to switch to the original sprites. This isnt complicated.
>>
>>19031263
And therefore, reading that story was a waste of time, because not only there's no real story, but the game calls you a sheeple for believing there would be one and mock you.
>>
>>19065212
Man, I'm so nostalgic for the anime and its OST. I wish it was a better adaptation.

It's probably not so bad now that I know all the extra details and characterization from the VN, but I remember a few scenes being kind of cringy and nothing at all like they were in the VN. Particularly the scene where K1 finds Rika's body in Tatarigoroshi and freaks out. The anime makes his reaction look almost funny because of the way he screams and the fact that he randomly throws the axe to the floor while trying to hit a crow and it slides all over the pool of blood. It's pure narm.
>>
>>19065242
You can always find a copy online to download and preserve, but there wont always be a physical box you can find.

I like to have something I can hold, I like to display everything Ive collected over the years on my shelf. Turning the cases with great art to face the front. They also tend to come with art booklets and other things. If you're afraid of the disc getting ruined, you can always copy the files to a small usb and toss it in the case.
>>
>>19065246
absolute fucking goat
>>
The only thing stopping me from liking the original art is how fucking ugly Mion looks.
>>
>>19065265
Oh, I know what you mean. Buying a digital game can feel like you didn't actually buy anything because it's all data. As if you wasted your money when you could've just pirated it.

I refuse to support censorship, no matter how "insignificant", so I would never buy the steam releases. And this bit of censorship is pretty significant for me because I feel personally attacked when something is censored for being "too pedo". I don't want to give any money to SJWs or moralfags, I'm fed up with their bullshit and they can go to Hell.

But I have a ton of Higurashi merchandise, so I'm still supporting Ryuukishi in a way. And I wouldn't mind buying a physical copy of the original Japanese release if I had the money to spare. He's one of the few authors I genuinely respect as a person.
>>
>>19065349
How does she look ugly? She has a lot of personality in her face. Do you mean the hands?
>>
>>19065349
You mean that expression when she's smirking with her eyes closed? She looks kind of dorky, but I really like it. She's supposed to be a teenager.

Alchemist Mion looks a bit more mature, but she also looks too serious when she's supposed to be goofy. And she also looks dead inside most of the time because of those eyes.
>>
>>19065375
I don't think the MG staff are moralfags. They released some eroge with lolis and shit.They just put up with Steam's censorship policies and add one of those "every character is 18" disclaimers to their loli eroge because the alternative is going out of business. We all have to sell our soul and ditch our principles for money, don't we?
>>
>>19065418
Has anyone actually edited her ps2 and steam sprites to remove the towel?
>>
>>19065430
Any nerd who can actually edit shit competently has probably never seen a pussy in his entire life, let alone a loli pussy. Only our boy Ryuukishi is capable of drawing Satoko's without making the sprite look like it comes from a dirty eroge or from Deviantart.
>>
>>19065465
That would kind of be hard to do seeing as how the steam sprites were actually drawn by a hentai artist so it already has that feel.
