When Fans Cry: Waiting For The Second Half Of A Story

26 September 2012 8:01 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

On these here pages of Twitch we've paid quite some attention to the Australian DVD release of the Japanese anime horror-thriller series When They Cry, with several reviews for both season one and season two. For good reason: When seen as a whole, this series tells a convoluted, bold story which I urge everyone who has an interest in horror or science fiction to go check out. Imagine the David Lynch series Twin Peaks, only a version where everything turns out to have been well-planned from the very beginning and where everything actually makes sense in the end. Storywise, When They Cry is That good. Convoluted and bold indeed. But the way this series finally was released in English-speaking territories was convoluted as well. For »

DVD Review: All Good Things Have to End With... Higurashi No Naku Koroni Kai (When They Cry Season 2 Part 2)

31 July 2012 9:16 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

When They Cry is set in a small rural town that goes by the name of Hinamizawa. In it lives a group of students that laugh together, play together and brutally murder each other multiple times. An infamous curse and a bizarre history steeps the town in bloody mystery and intrigue as each year during the cotton drifting festival there is a murder and a disappearance. When They Cry works through this lore in multiple realities as the story appears to be resetting; what is really happening and why? Do not read this review until you've read my other part here.Well it is over. It has been a fair wait but When They Cry concludes with Higurashi no Naku Koroni Kai Part 2 and when I say conclude, »

DVD Review: Higurashi No Naku Koroni Kai (When They Cry season 2 part 1)

When They Cry is set in a small rural town that goes by the name of Hinamizawa. In it lives a group of students that laugh together, play together and brutally murder each other multiple times. An infamous curse and a bizarre history steeps the town in bloody mystery and intrigue as each year during the cotton drifting festival there is a murder and a disappearance. When They Cry works through this lore in multiple realities as the story appears to be resetting; what is really happening and why? ...the only problem now is the agonizing wait and quest for answers regarding the release of season two. The last words of my review for season one of this fantastic series, but fortunately now that wait is over! The »

DVD Review: Noitamina's Usagi Drop

28 April 2012 11:08 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Massive respect must be attributed to the forward-thinking Siren Visual for releasing Usagi Drop outside of Japan before the rest of the world does. They are ensuring Australia gets the long end of the straw here.While I wait for the extremely anticipated part 2 of Siren Visual's When They Cry, I had the chance to check out the Usagi Drop anime series, based on the manga and following Sabu's feature film of the same name. Twitch anime legend Ard's review is here, but I really wanted to provide my thoughts on the series, and hopefully prompt some more due interest in it. Usagi Drop is a no-fuss series about a thirty year old named Daikichi who goes through the motions of life as a single »

Siren Visual releases When They Cry season 2!

4 January 2012 5:47 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Coming back from the Christmas holidays I find this piece of news in my mailbox and Damn am I happy about this! Earlier this year Kwenton and I reviewed the first season of eerie and very violent anime series "When They Cry", both of us liking it a lot (link) but we were dismayed to discover that the story stopped just shy of the grand reveal about what was actually taking place. The series is about a very creepy string of murders in a rural village, culminating in a terrible event in 1983. The only problem is that this story is told in several separate story-arcs, each of which contradicts the others totally. Different people die and different people turn murderous, and even the cause »
