Part 3 of the Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni: Rei OVA series, and this continues from the previous episode of Rika being lost in an instance of Hinamizawa that had no Dam War, and no Maebara Keiichi. The rather straightforward and plodding nature of the episode takes away from what’s supposed to be a chilling ending, but it’s still a good watch.
Then again, I may be another Higurashi fan just itching for more. See what you think after the jump.

Why am I doing this…?
Honestly, I have no idea. Something about my being a ‘completionist’ – OVA1 is done, might as well do OVA2. Not like it took a lot of brain power anyway. Enjoy the screenshots after the break.

The series picks up its pace as it nears the conclusion of its 26-episode run, and things get even more hectic with the return of a Season 1 fan favorite: Tsugumi! Well…a grown up Tsugumi, at least. Anyway, heads will spin, as math and science explain the concept of Hell in this episode of Jigoku Shoujo!

With this, I finally close Tales of the Abyss. I haven’t gotten around to 25 and 26 for a while, and that’s mostly because…well, didn’t really want to watch it much, really. Got REALLY hard after I started watching other series, too. Higashi no Eden and K-On are so ridiculous they’re actually interesting to me. Other things to worry about too.
In a nutshell, Abyss is one of the better adventures series to come out in recent years, but I don’t think I’ll be rewatching it anytime soon. Not while the game is sitting on my desk, at least.
Short summaries and final impressions following the break.

I like this song enough to post my translation of the lyrics. They’re probably not completely correct (does anybody have a scan of the official lyrics? Do those even exist?!), but I think they should be close. Grammar…bleh, where’s a TLCer when you need one?.
Comments / corrections welcome. Enjoy!

A vast improvement over the last episode, with a very…well, EPIC ending. Gods, where was this 18 episodes ago!? Mind you, the ending is still hidden behind the rest of the episode, but at least the plot was a lot more dramatic than a stupid radio show.
Noticed that nobody has ever put up the translation for the full version of ‘storm’, aka Mai Otome Zwei ED2. I like the song enough that I might actually put it up here. I’ll have to rummage around for the lyrics.

To be perfectly honest, I’ve already finished Mitsuganae, but I’ve been far too lazy to actually write about it. I’ll try to clear the backlog in good time, however. Meanwhile, only one show has caught me eye so far for the new season: K-On! The others…well, so far they’re falling flat on their faces, although Tears to Tiara may have SOME promise. If I clear this backlog in a reasonable amount of time, I’ll start that maybe. Speaking of backlogs, I’ve had Abyss done for like…ever.
Back to this episode. Simply put? I couldn’t buy into this episode at all. Especially looking at it in hindsight, with so much goodness at the end of the series…meh, well, here you go. For completeness sake.
