Higurashi-series [R-18]

Definitely not for everyone (In Japan there's no such thing as R-18 for bloody stuff - just porn. SO in Japan Higurashi series is R-16 or R-15 - can't remember which it is..). Lots of blood and killing + psychological horror.
I ended up watching the first series (Higurashi no naku koro ni) when it was released back in 2006. Somehow I really liked it even though I was scared as hell while I watched those episodes - all 26 of them. Then there was the second season (Higurashi no naku koro ni kai) in 2007 - watched all of the 24 episodes and after that there was OVA (Original Video Animation) (Higurashi no naku koro ni Rei) in 2009. I've watched all of those and a little while ago I told about the series to my female penpal in Finland. She saw the OP of the first series and said it looked nice - that she might end up watching the series. I doubted since all of her favourite animes have been extremely cute and girly animes - which Higurashi ain't..... at least in most cases....

And as someone wrote:
"To those of you who havent watched Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni/Kai;
It is an extremely cute show with a harem theme and lots of moe characters...............................................and a lot of bloooddddddd and goreeeee :DD"

And I actually loved the series.. I don't know why but I did.. Blood and gore........ Well I've seen Battle Royales as well so........ :)
