Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Rei (OVA)

Director: Toshifumi Kawase
Studio: Studio Deen
No. of episodes: 5
(9/10)Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Rei is the OVA addition to the Higurashi series. It was mainly just created for fans. There isn't much to say about this season, but it is indeed very well made. There are three chapters in this season. One of the chapters is just about what life is like after the end of Kai. When Rika was trying to enjoy herself, she was hit by a truck. When she woke up, she was in a parallel world where nothing bad ever happened and everything was perfect. The only problem was that the group of friends were drawn together due to hardships. In this parallel world however, Rika had no friends and Keiichi had never come to the village. A lot more things were different and she could not live happily. She had two solutions, either kill her mother (you'll find out why if you watch it) and return to the old world, or she could just suffer where she was in order to make others happy.
The other two chapters were just for fun really. One of them is about a magical speedo. Keiichi is wearing it, but it will give him bad luck and he doesn't know it. The girls decide to try to save him by ripping it right off of him!
The last chapter is about these supernatural items that cause people to fall in love, but can become disastrous. Rena accidentally swallows one when it falls from the sky. Basically the rest is all humorous.(9/10)
