Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei: Saikoroshi-hen 2

26 June, 2009

Rika <3s her marbles.

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.

To-LoveRu OVA2: Rito and Mikan

10 June, 2009

Mikan = best imouto ever?

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.

To-LoveRu OVA: Rito Becomes a Girl

5 April, 2009

Uhh...one time post on this series. Really.

Godawful series, and the manga isn’t doing so hot these days either (rumored shut down soon, I think).  However, they did finally get around to animating one of the more amusing arcs in the manga.  Suffice it to say that this is about as unfiltered as fan service can get.  Meh, enjoy the screenshots.

On a sidenote, this is still better than Queen’s Blade.  Godawful show, that one.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei: Saikoroshi-hen 1

4 April, 2009

Reina is quite different in this world.

Saikoroshi-hen, a.k.a. ‘Dice-Killing Chapter’.  In the more serious OVA installment of one of my favorite series of all time, this episode continues with the events of Matsuribayashi-hen, with Keiichi and company breaking the cycle in Hinamizawa.  Of course, Rika had to go and screw things up.

Oddly enough, I wasn’t TOO thrilled by this installment, but I think I can explain it away as them laying ‘groundwork’ for the future.  There’s a lot to talk about before anything big can happen, so for the moment, it seems best to just sit back, and wait for the continuation of the story…

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei: Hajisarashi-hen

1 March, 2009

Edited just in case of little ones around here ;)

YAY MORE HIGURASHI!  And it’s a fun chapter too!  I believe it’s from a light novel that came boxed with Higurashi Matsuri, but someone correct me if I’m wrong.  Anyway, almost every gets an appearance in this one, and it’s quite a laugher.  Enjoy the fun!  [Mind you, this has been written at like 1 AM, so I could be a wee bit off on my translations…I’m tired.]

Go past the jump for some semi-gravure images of the four main girls, courtesy of this OVA, too.  Yes, consider that my ‘lure’.

(Title image edited for any little eyes that might be prying around here 😉 )
