Do they really have to spread it that far out? And what's with young girls who watch Higurashi and killing their fathers with sharp objects?

yes! a fumoffu type higurashi then more twisted paranoia with gruesome murders. I actually really like the slice of life comedy in this series. now I really want funi to bring the rest of the series over here.

Hmm, I just I was expecting more out of the series now that I'm heavily involved and seen the two previous seasons and read part of the manga.

I like the light-hearted scenes in Higurashi - don't get me wrong -, but all that murder and intense story-telling had me going! I even had to take notes; I was so swept into the drama. xD

WANT MORE!!

Also to add - very happy Funimation picked up Geneon's titles. Making a good thing out of a bad thing. (: Nice to see that the titles aren't just going to rot away.

Will this OVA feature the same characters that were in the series?

Very excited to see Saikoroshi-hen animated, twas a very good story. Just sucks to have to wait it out that long.

And yes, though unrelated, I'd love to see Kai get a domestic release here as well. Not holding my breath right now though.

Unless I've very much mistaken however, the logo on that image is for Higurashi Kai.

So, we will have:

Saikororshi-hen, the "Dice Killing Chapter".

Hirukowashi-hen, the "Daybreak Chapter".

And this new chapter, Hajisarashi-hen. I wonder what this one will be about?

I'm really glad with these news, but I hope saikoroshi hen doesn't spoil the almost good end that KAI had...(I dunno nothing about the story in saikoroshi). Anyway, now I'm waiting for the first character designs of umineko...
