白夢の繭 ~Ricordando il passato~

One of the most saddest ending songs I ever heard! ;__;

thebiggesthigurashi:

The biggest point in Higurashi - the thesis of Higurashi itself as a story, the moral, the theme - is “Get help for your problems instead of hiding them or hiding from them. If you reached out your hand to the resources you could take, you would surely receive help in some way.”

Rena did not do this. Tsumihoroboshi-hen. 

Keiichi did not do this. Tatarigoroshi-hen. Onikakushi-hen.

Shion did not do this. Meakashi-hen/Watanagashi-hen.

Even Takano did not do this, and the story begins like that. 

Had Takano told someone about her story, about her struggles, she would’ve received help sooner rather than later, because we know she was suffering from PTSD the moment she escaped the corrupt orphanage. 

Worlds where Takano does not suffer and does not lose her parents lead to seemingly-perfect worlds where in the end, Rika is the one who suffers the most. 

Thankfully, those worlds are very, very rare. 

The point is - reach out to those you have. Tell them your struggles. Tell people what you’ve been through. Get help. It will benefit you more to get help than to keep it bottled inside until it explodes, regardless of how quickly it takes - for Keiichi, Shion and Rena in Higurashi, it took a matter of days; for Takano, it took her entire life.

Great moral of Higurashi: That post and always remembering that you are not alone. There are always people who care and love you!

higurashi-official:

Man higurashi will take every fucking chance to just be like ‘fuck you’ to satoko tho
This entirely new arc that was made just for the anime is a perfect example its like it was made just for that purpose
All of higurashi is just like ‘okay now how do we make satokos life even worse there has got to be more ways to make her miserable and make her life a living hell and just totally fuck her and her life over c’mon guys we can’t stop till she’s fucking screwed at every goddamn turn’

'Her mom remarrying again and again and her step fathers being mean to her and then her slowly getting a fucking disease that makes her insane that she needs to take shots for every day and then she kills said parents because of this disease because she thinks they want to kill her and in reality they don't but oh well theres no way to avoid this and then her aunt and uncle taking her and her brother in and abusing them and her brother protecting her then killing their aunt and disappearing only to find out later he's in a fucking coma and there's a possibility he might not come back but she's waiting for him and trying to get stronger and she blames herself for his disappearance and guess what he honestly did want her to be a little more independent and then a girl with a crush on him stabs her to death but she won't let herself cry and said girl also slapped her yelled at her and was about to beat her with a chair and then her best friend takes her in and lets her live with her but she feels like a bother yet again did we mention that the village hates her fucking family and treats her like shit and when her uncle comes back she'll only want to take the abuse because she'll feel like she's making up for everything and just all the fucking abuse she endures and then you got this whole fucking new arc where she tries so hard to help her best friend and she won't tell her anything and she gets paranoid and tries to protect her from dying but she sees her all cut open at the shrine and then she has to run from killers falls off a bridge and gets to learn that the entire village and her friends are all dead goes into fucking shock and then she sort of finds out the truth behind the disaster but then she gets killed and after all the shit from the past year she slowly regains her smile again but guess what her friends will all fucking die or go crazy eventually and she might even get fucking killed not to mention more than half the fanbase hates her because she's apparently a whiny crybaby about all this and she likes to play a few pranks and she has an 'annoying' laugh which is actually great and cute and she's great and cute and awesome but oh wait she also does get the shit beat out of her with a chair in one world by her best friend in other worlds no less and while she is mean to rika you find out later the rika of that world isn't so great either'

I am probably missing a lot of shit but yeah
Life is fun and gr8 for satoko

Edit: and keiichi who she begins to think of as a new brother and helps make life fun for her again
Welp she pushes him off a bridge because she believes he’s possessed and now he’s taken away from her too and in the same arc she gets to see her dead best friend too
Not to mention Rena tells her straight out she sinned because she always hid behind satoshi and contributed to his disappearance like the entire main group but she already knows this
And she thinks everything is because she broke the statue in the forbidden tool shed and she cursed everyone and herself

let’s not forget that her multiple stepfathers before houjou were actually extremely abusive to her as well + her mother being abusive

and the fact that she very nearly had her brain vivisected and cruelly experimented on while she was alive

also she never knew that satoshi was in a coma she still thinks he just ran away. just abandoned her flat out. like, to think about it… knowing your older brother is in a coma (but is still alive) and is near you is a lot better than thinking that he left her alone because she was emotional baggage to him

Satoko needs a hug! ;___;

minagoroshi-hen:

SATOKO HOUJOU DESERVES TO BE KIssed on the head and given lots of nice things and loved by everyone because she’s the toughest lil cookie and she deserves the world

She does! :)

kibasniper:

i think we really need to acknowledge tomita in this moment of the minagoroshi-hen manga.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Minagoroshi 25 - Page 30

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Minagoroshi 25 - Page 31

this is a kid who bravely stood up for his friend satoko once he learned from the club members that she was being severely abused by her horrid uncle. in the manga, he is depicted as the ringleader of the children that desperately want to defend satoko. in fact, he’s the one who affirms their dedication in saving satoko no matter what cost they must pay because she is their dear friend and like a family member.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Minagoroshi 9 - Page 10

while he’s not a main character, tomita honestly just proves himself the most here out of all of the children. of course, okamura does as well, but it’s really tomita who steals the show. tomita takes charge of the situation for the kids and stands up, proclaiming that satoko is one of them and that they will not abandon her or let satoko die. these kids are among the first of keiichi’s recruits in their efforts to protest social services for their refusal to admit that satoko is being abused, but it’s tomita’s vows that really seal the deal for keiichi in seeing just how dedicated they are to saving satoko.

it makes this scene in the final chapter of the manga just so much sadder. here he is in the same place where he affirmed that he would protect satoko witnessing his best friend, okamura, dying, along with his fellow classmates - his friends that are like family - and other members of the hinamizawa community perishing from some unknown gas. he is depicted as the last person living in that poisoned room. this is a kid that boldly stood up along with his peers and hinamizawa villagers to defend satoko, and they had won that uphill battle, but, in the end, tomita is forced to witness the deaths of these people and his best friend.

he’s scared and horrified. he’s just seeing everyone drop dead like flies, and even in that first panel, okamura is falling over dead. he’s backed up against the wall completely afraid because he knows that he’s going to die next, but he doesn’t know why any of it is happening. for tomita, all of his efforts seem to have been in vain because the people who rose up with him are dying all around him whether it is elders or schoolchildren or okamura, tomita’s efforts to protect his friends and family had been in vain, and in the last moments of his life, he’s realizing it.

Nope, NOPE, THIS IS NOT OKAY! I AM SOBBING RIGHT NOW! ;_____;

In another very distant kakera, this is how Tsumihoroboshi played out.

Prefect ending!

Asker matt0044 Asks:
You know what's great about Higurashi? How it can be optimistic is a nuanced why yet never shy away from incredibly horrific stuff. From the friendship of Keiichi and the girls to Takano's hellish time in the orphanage. It's something not a lot of horror series/movies do.

Song Spotlight #2

The Great Migration - The Land Before Time (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

By: James Horner

Composed in 1988 for the hit animated film, The Land Before Time, this piece, found on one of the shortest soundtracks I’ve ever heard (7 tracks), brings out one of the very best in film scores. It carries a style not seen often today. This track, possessing near majestic qualities, also introduces many, if not all of the soundtrack’s themes, flawlessly. In the age of modern film music, this track stands out from the rest as a jump back to the golden age, and it is for this reason, that this track has found its way into the Soundtrack Spotlight

Powerful and emotional opening song!

A lot of people criticize Suki because she doesn’t change through the series.  They say that she remains the same character and doesn’t experience any growth as a character.  This point is why they claim that she is a Mary-Sue.  However, this scene right here proves that she is not.

 What is so great about this scene is that it shows she has changed.  Before, she was satisfied with staying at home and protecting it.  In her eyes, and the Kyoshi Warriors’ eyes, that was fine.  It was the best way to protect her loved ones from the war.  But then something happened, the war came to her, and through that, she discovered the only true way to protect the ones she loves is going out there and make a change.  This would not have happened without Sokka, Katara, and Aang.  Yes, it was because of them that war came to their shores, but how long was this safety going to last?  Was this state of peace really going to last forever?

No.  Of course not.

Suki saw this.  The warriors saw this.

They have been doing the SAME thing for YEARS.  Probably a hundred, maybe more.  Just staying on Kyoshi Island and protecting it, never venturing out.  To change this state of mind is a really big deal, and shows that Suki changes.  She changes her point of view of the view.  She wants to go out and make a difference.  And that is a big deal.

While she teaches Sokka how to respect women, Sokka teaches her that in order to change the world she has to go out there and do something.  To really protect the people she loves and the island, she has to go out there and try to help end the war, not just wait for the battles to come to her.  This takes courage, and a lot of it.  

Suki does grow as a character.  It might not big where a whole episode is dedicated to it, but there is lines like those that show she’s growing as a character and becoming a better and stronger person.  All thanks to Sokka.

Which is one of the many reasons why this ship is so amazing, but I’m not getting into that.  This post is about how Suki grows as a character and doesn’t remain static through the series.

I completely agree with Elyse here. Suki is one of my favorite characters, and people tend to over-simplify her, but she is actually a really powerful and interesting character. 

In the beginning we see that Suki’s primary concern is protecting the people she cares about. This remains a part of her character throughout the show, but what’s really amazing is how she begins to look outward. She doesn’t just want to save her isolated group on the island anymore. She wants to help refugees make it to Ba Sing Se, she wants to save Toph (twice). She sacrifices herself for Appa because she knows that the fate of the world is more important than her own. She learns and grows and realizes that everyone is worth something and that she can’t just focus on her isolated community. She’s just such a brilliant, heroic character.

Great analysis on Suki’s character development!

When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett [Johansson] does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that. There’s so many of these little people out here doing awful things for money in the world of being famous. And little girls see that. They should have the opposite spectrum of that to look up to.
