On the last forums I professed that I am a huge, huge fan of Higurashi, and lo and behold the next season starts up this month I think. The trailer's out (http://youtube.com/watch?v=SPAeupMuF9Y) and translated by a few groups, I linked the raw on youtube there.

The show isn't particularly scary or anything, but it's just got this weird vibe to it, and the way the different arcs all blend together is different, to say the least. If you want to check out the original series (name up top sans the Kai part), be warned that there is a fair amount of blood, gore, and death in it and some rather twisted characters.

Higurashi is pretty crazy. I think the way they've approached telling the story, what with resetting the world over and over again, is quite clever, and the extreme nature of the violence makes for a viscerally entertaining(?) show. I don't know if I want to put myself through the stress though. I might just end up reading the Anime on My Mind summaries (http://anime.miao.us/archives/category/series/higurashi/) of each episode. He adds a lot of humor to the horror.
