      Welcome to the new When They /cry/ board! You can post Higurashi content without worrying about spoiling things. This board won't be showing up on /all/ or the front page. You can post about Umineko and Ciconia, too, but you should use spoiler options on those for the time being. This is something we can figure out together.
      A custom CSS is in the works, so you might see changes to the visuals now and again.

      The silhouette still having an open mouth in the correct position is part of the reason it's so unnerving to me. I don't want to do a bunch of photoshop stuff but I guess the right would be the stylistic anime choice whereas left would be if you wanted to be accurate

      I've come to the realization that Gou can be enjoyed 100% without having any knowledge of Umineko. While a bunch of it could be seen as Umineko fanservice that's more enjoyable after having read it, it's not at all a required reading to understand Gou. At most it gives context to hints that were scattered out throughout bonus scenes in Umineko that gave reference to Bern's backstory and the Higurashi connection.

      Also it may even be better for those without having experienced Umineko as based off of

      When people speculated about Higurashi being conneceted to Umineko I thought there were subtle hints and stuff in both stories, not something this blatant.
      I only recently started reading the Umineko manga and I think I enjoyed the Gou and the speculations a lot more due to not knowing Umineko.

      Can we say either way with confidence yet? A direct connection to Umineko was only really established last episode and we have no idea how far or otherwise the next four episodes will go along that path. Personally I expect it to keep it vague and mysterious so as to advertise Umineko to newcomers, but giving how badly Gou has failed as a newcomer-friendly anime regarding the Higurashi parts, I wouldn't be surprised if they end up going whole hog.

      Well to their credit, R07 lied through their teeth when they claimed this was a remake for the purpose of surprising viewers and it was a resounding success. It was never meant to be newcomer-friendly, and anyone that believed it to be was fooled by the early marketing. As for the Umineko connection, the stuff that connects Higurashi to Umineko is not at all relevant to the plot of Umineko. All it does is add more to certain meta characters and create a shared universe between R07's works like with the shared characters in CLAMP's works. You wouldn't tell somebody that it's necessary to watch Rayearth to understand Card Captor Sakura, XXXHolic, or vice versa, but it adds a bit to those stories/characters knowing that connection.

      Rika has been a crappy friend to Satoko, but I think she deserves some benefit of the doubt. Rika didn't necessarily understand the full extent of Satoko's shitty situation, only that she was being punished and having trouble studying. If they go back into the loops before returning to St. Lucia, Rika wouldn't even have had a chance to notice that Satoko was transferred to the special classes. Also, she has no understanding of the bad side of St. Lucia, as it's been mostly only a good time for her.

      The story makes more sense if you put the current arc before all the other new ones, with the kusogaki doing her hardest to keep Rika-chama in Hinamizawa after getting dumped.

      That has always been her problem though. Remember that it took the entire village for her to admit that she needed help in Minagoroshi and that that Satoko, who learned that it was okay to admit weakness and ask for help, is dead.
      The "current" Satoko is still the maladjusted abused child who thinks bottling up her feelings will make her stronger and Nii-Nii come back.

      I'm not so sure it's a theory as it is just out there in the open. The only way that Satoko could become a looper is if she was bestowed those powers. And at the end of this episode we see her awaken and meet Featherine (Hanyuu), who can easily do this. She's essentially a god.
