watch rei since it's the epilogue and outbreak is a what if branch from the end of season 2 adult rika messing with the timeline and sadly the anime never completed it so it's ending was done in the VN
kira is a fun ova that has the character in full silly mode which i rec for fun non serious episodes and they are canon by ryu07 who wrote it himself

Yes. I watched all 5 episodes one hour after saying I haven't watched it yet.

Started Rei.

The first thing I noticed is that the production quality is a lot higher. The benefits of being an OVA. DEEN seems to have gotten a little horny with the character designs this time around too. Mion's boobs being individually defined through her swimsuit sure is something. Also I don't recall Keiichi being a lolicon.

It's weird that magic unrelated to Hanyu suddenly (allegedly) exists after we firmly established that there were scientific explanations for everything else that's happened in this series. Also since when can Hanyu interact with the physical world? I thought she was limited to being an observer until she manifested in the final loop.

Rei ep 2.

Leave it to Truck-kun to mess up Rika's happy ending and isekai her to another timeline that's far departed from any previous one.

On top of what happened in Gou, this series really is just about Rika suffering, isn't it?

Finished Rei.

At long last, I get the answer to my biggest question since the beginning. How and why Rika started looping in the first place. It's so weird to me that they waited until the story had essentially ended before addressing this.

Although I now have new questions because she suddenly name-dropped some witch named Bernkastel. I don't want any specifics, but is that an Umineko thing? I'm still not entirely sure how the two series are connected, since the official art I've seen makes it seem like a completely different setting from 80s rural Japan.

And the final episode is hilarious and all, but god it feels out of place with the rest of the series. Takano is talking about bringing about Oyashiro-sama's curse right in front of Rika, and she doesn't bat an eye. Also everyone knows she's interested in the Furude shrine's treasures and don't think she's suspicious? I guess I should just write this and the first episode off as non-canon since it's almost Carnival Phantasm levels of wacky.

Don't know if I'll get to Kira right away or not. Depends on how I'm feeling.

bern is another alter ago born from the bad end routes while frederica bernkastel is adult rika who kept her humanity you saw at the end of S2 while i would tell you to read umineko i doubt you will read the VN so go for the manga at least the anime is a horrible adaption so much so most of the fanbase insist that it doesn't exist
btw there is an expanded arcs for higurashi if you ever want to come back one day and one of them includes a prequel origin story for hanyuu you got a brief summery in rei about her past sadly the translation for it is still ongoing so there is not rush for that even after gou part 2
here is the prom pic adult hanyuu being badass
