Higurashi was severely watered down. I mean, in the VN, Rena was so f-ing moe. Studio Deen just pretty much slaughtered her moe and just put in something that didn't even resemble her. Damn, the higurashi VN really sets up a happy setting in the beginning, then just brings you down just to [tornado fang] with you.
I think they kinda screwed around with umineko, but so far, it's passable.
As for the FSN movie, 90 min is a bit too short. What are they smoking?
