A short original video animation (OVA) directed by Naotaka Hayashi and produced by Studio Gram was bundled as a DVD with the limited edition of the third manga volume
sold on February 26, 2011. Another OVA DVD, produced by the same staff as the previous OVA, was released separately on March 25, 2011. A TV anime series, with the same staff as the OVAs, began airing in Japan in July 2011. The second OVA features two pieces of theme music: one opening theme and one ending theme. The opening theme is "Morita-san wa Mukuchi" (森田さんは無口?) sung by Kana Hanazawa and Haruka Tomatsu, and the ending theme is "Tōmawarishite Kaero!" (遠回りして帰ろ!?) sung by Yoshino Nanjō and Saori Hayami. A single containing the theme songs was released on March 25, 2011.
The story underneath is a universal one, powerful and expertly told. Viewers should be prepared for a devastating experience with a lot of challenging concepts that pile on hard and fast as the finale approaches.
Tech-based magical girls battle aliens in a heavily-derivative, otaku-pandering series that is definitely not aimed at little girls. It avoids mediocrity due an outstanding musical score and never forgetting that it is supposed to be fun.
Higurashi: When They Cry is still an intriguing, spine-chilling, gut-churning horror/mystery hybrid that has nicely recovered from the prologue feel of the previous volume. It can be an intimidating series to pick up, but it looks as if those who stuck by it are about to be amply rewarded
