Dear Entertainment Diary,

What's UP???! Sorry for not updating you for the longest time, TWO FREAKING WEEKS, so far. Can't update cause I lost up my internet connection. Sad. But I'm still watching a lot of anime series lately. Been loving every piece of those anime videos I downloaded with all my might during my free time especially during midnight onwards.

This post is about one of those animes I have watched probably last two months ago, which also became one of my top favorite animes so far.

I'm sure a lot of you already heard this anime. It actually is a remake or should I say, adaptation, of a very famous Visual Novel, of th same name.

Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni also known as When They Cry/ When The Cicadas Cry is probably one of the best animes ever existed. Why? Because it got all the kinds of genre a person can ever want to watch in an anime series. Comedy, Horror, Psychological, Killing spree and Gore, Drama, Family, Slice of Life, Mystery, Fantasy. Need to say more?

I actually like how the creator of this visual game have written and made this masterpiece. He started of introducing the Characters and the Settings at first, then as we know what we all need to know about the anime, well, what we PRIMARILY NEED TO KNOW, then, he just shocked us with this horrible events that are going to make up the plot and mystery of th story. Harsh isn't it? Just when we started to love the characters, the tragedy happens. Well, it's kind of a genius actually. It just came off unexpected, that is if you haven't read any spoiler before watching it.

Another I like about this anime is that, there were so many events happen in just the same time. The writer never ran out of ideas and all of the shockers came unexpected until the end.Who the culprit was? Why they are doing it? What is their past? Etc. All of it just came shocking us, unbelievable but happy endings, who should date who? and many more.

It's just one of the best. Wait. I said it already.

Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni is the first pary of the series and contains all the Question arcs, containing 6 Chapters. In other words, there are a lot of questions here and will never be answered even if you finish watching the whole series. Don't worry, this anime is so good and actually got high ratings and praises, it got its second season, Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Kai, which contains the Answer arcs that answers everything regarding to all the happenings in the first series. 

The series is all about the curse, traditions, people, and events regarding the village of Hinamizawa. The story focuses Keiichi Maebara, who just transferred from Tokyo to start his new life after "the incident" happened to him and just wanted to forget it, and his newly found friends Rena Ryuugu, Mion and Shion Sonozaki, Satoko Houjo, and Rika Furude.

The characters were drawn cute and believable, it's just so unbelievable that they can do those horrendously terrifying things just because of this so-called disease and stuff.

Overall, this anime is one of the best (not again?). LOL. Well it's the truth anyways so just watch it and be amazed. Of course, at first you'll all be like "What the?" What just happened? Why the hell did they do that? Why him? Why her?Why is the autopsy says she died the before the Watanagashi festival when we saw her walking there? (OOOOPPSSS SPOILER) I think I must stop right now.

I advice you to watch everything about this series and believe me, you will be satisfied and amazed on just how what we thought the many different stories tangled up and put up together in such a way we understand the things we desperately want to know.  

P.S. When the Title and ending credits roll. Do not, I mean, DO NOT, forward it cause the 2 ost's are too good to be skipped. Both are very good catchy songs that will run around your mind for a couple of weeks! Believe me, I even made a cover of the endinig OST "Why, Why Not". :)
