Hey guys, I made a new monologue video!
I remember I made a post a couple of months ago saying that I wanted to make a video that poses the question, “What if Higurashi was a live-action drama series?”
It’s a 2 minute monologue with me posing as Keiichi. It’s pretty cool, so check it out and leave a like if you liked it! :D
I kinda’ wanted to do one for a while now. Ideas for this are flooding my head. Here’s how it’ll go.
>It’ll be from Keiichi’s point of view, when he first moves to Hinamizawa
>The “Main Theme” will be playing in the background
>It will consist of clips from the anime
>It will be in the form of a commercial teaser for the series
…Yeah, I definately want to do this.
Day 27: Favorite GIF from this series.
Because its Rika, mkay?
Day 28: What character do you most relate to?
Keiichi Maebara. We both are school smart, both our moms love mystery stuff, we both joined a memorable group a friends,
and we both almost blinded a small child. Wait, what. (Sarcasm at its best)
Day 29: A character from this series as a catboy/catgirl. If no pictures exist, MS PAINT TIME!*!*!*!
(A cat? Out of all things…)
Day 25: A place in the series that you’d like to visit
The Furude Shrine. I thought saying Hinamizawa itself, but that would just be dull because the whole series is in it. But, I would take SO many pictures over at the Furude Shrine. And one of them would be me laying where Rika was when she was gutted with two thumbs up, then post it as my facebook profile picture. NO REGRETS.
Day 26: Do you have an OC (original character) that goes with this series? If so, describe/post a picture. If not, why?
No. I simply couldn’t add another character into the series. That would be too hard, plus I think it would ruin it for me. I like all the characters as they are. I mean come on, think of how hard it would be to make a character to tie in with EVERYTHING.
Day 23: You have to marry a character from this series. Who is it?
Rena Ryuugu. Again, I’m not exactly a dude to ship characters…especially with myself. But, I just like Rena’s personality and how as odd as she can be at times, she doesn’t let things in her life bother her, and cherishes her days as they go by. That’s someone I would want to be with.
Day 22: Least favorite thing about the series
The OVAs. Fuck em’. Seriously, other than episodes 2,3, 4 of Rei, and the 4th OVA of Kira, fuck them all. I didn’t watch Higurashi to see some moe shit with Rika rubbing her ass on a window, Keiichi presenting his genatalia to the whole gang, and Takano to be able to play the flute with her boobs. I came to see the ground breaking story that I love, not…what ever that image is up there…
Day 20: Favorite song from the series
Most people would say their favorite song is Dear You because of all the different versions of it. I love the song too, but I feel that the main theme is so much more fitting into Higurashi. It gives off the sense of the mystery, eerie, and creepy vibes Higurashi has.
Day 18: An episode/scene that makes you sad
The end of Minagoroshi-hen. In Minagoroshi-hen, Rika was so close to putting an end to fate. She rounded up the whole club and told them the truth. She finally exposed herself and what she knew about Hinamizawa that the others didn’t, but in the end she suffered an even worse fate this time. Getting gutted like a fish, yes, but also she saw all of her friends die with her one by one. But the thing that makes my jaw drop is that when everyone is dead, they still promise to try harder in the next world. Now I don’t care what anybody says, but that deserves a manly tear.
Day 19: An episode/scene that makes you happy/laugh
I loved that scene where everyone knew the which cards were which by telling the scratches they had. I was lol’ing at Keiichi when he was like, “HOW THE HELL DO YOU KNOW MY CARDS?!”
Day 14: Favorite Fanvideo
Okay so I just spent about an hour deciding which one is my all time favorite video. But I just can’t. So instead of putting up 1 video, I’ll put up my Top 5 and why. (In no specific order)
Great editing, amazing quality, makes the series interesting and approachable.
2. Scariest Higurashi Video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_jx4jqGRvM&list=FL9ovMpk8IDxKeWVc1NERrnA&index=63&feature=plpp_video
I just about shit my pants when I saw this. If you want to expierience what having Hinamizawa Syndrome really feels like, watch this.
3. Giving a taste of the endless Confusion Higurashi has - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oRNgVvrUw0&list=FL9ovMpk8IDxKeWVc1NERrnA&index=318&feature=plpp_video
When I was beginning to watch the anime, this video really set the mood I needed in order to deal with Higurashi’s confusion. It was like, “You are going to see a lot of weird shit. But believe me, its awesome in the end.”
4. Funniest Higurashi Video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0WKMcO7akQ&list=FL9ovMpk8IDxKeWVc1NERrnA&index=358&feature=plpp_video
When I found this I couldn’t stop pressing the replay button. Really hilarious.
5. Best video for expressing Higurashi for what it really is - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuFh9uVR_6w&list=FL9ovMpk8IDxKeWVc1NERrnA&index=140&feature=plpp_video
I’m not sure if this one is a “fan-made” video or not. But nonetheless, its awesome. Love the song, love the editing, love the animation, love err’tang.
Alright so, when I saw this, I couldn’t help but do one, here we go!
Day 1: A picture that best represents this series
When it really comes down to it, through the blood and sorrow, through the mystery and confusion, Higurashi is really about a group of friends defeating an inevitable foe. Fate. When Rika Furude finally gets that one spark of hope from her friends, to be able to finally live in a world with nobody to lose, it changes the whole series to something beautiful. This picture reminds me of that miracle.
