I'm probably the only one who care about this series, but it's my LJ! BWHAHAHA

Rei ships in about ten days. Someone already got their copy, it seems, and has leaked clips.

The opening, Super Scription of Data. SHOULD be Superscription of Data, but what can we do? The opening features the new character designs and what seems to be a stylistic return to the first season's opening:



Personally, I love it. Oddly enough, I enjoyed the second season's opening more than the first. o.O

Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Rei is an adaptation of a short story collection that doesn't have any impact on the main storyline. Like a lot of side stories in this series, they're "What Ifs". Two of them are actually very light hearted. The other one, though, is a very grim story that shows an alternate reality where nothing bad happened and there were no massive coverups, killing a lot of the emotional development that the characters had.

The opening is based on only this story. Thus, the themes of isolation that are heavy in it.

I'm still on the fence about the character designs. The eyes, which are a sticking point for a lot of people, don't really bug me. The hair does, though. It's like everyone as a giant poof at the back of their heads!

The ending and a clip from the first episode are up over at Nico Nico and through some fluke, I got my account to work!

This reminds me of something, but I don't know WHAT. Like, an older show or something else.

And this has a metric TON of fan service aimed at the female audience. HOOOOOOLY CRAP. We're talking shirtless guys, speedos and crotch shots. Like older men? Got that! Average, geeky guys? Got that too! Built guys? Tommy is the most stacked geek EVER! Heck, there's even a teen for extra measure, just to balance things out!

I laughed so hard I gave myself a headache. Personally, I'd go for Irie, but I have a thing for blond guys with glasses. HA!
