My point of view
15 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

The people who've seen Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni, might say that this show stole material. here's a thought everyone does that a lot of people copy dragon ball hello, trust me ill bet there's a lot out there. any who i really liked this show not as much as Higurashi, but still it is quite confusing to understand the whole story of this anime. if you read the manga it makes more sense to it plus. i don't really care what other people say about this show it was good for me and that's what i cared for the most. so please ignore the bad reviews of this show and just go see it for yourself and you decide if its good or bad to you sincerely an opening view of a person.
