Another take on the 'what if' conceptbut this time it's a virus outbreak. I do like the idea behind it but it felt a little on the short side compared to the other story arcs. It's not as brutal as the first season but it was nice to see the bat and hatchet given some more screentime.
What I Liked: It's Higurashi, I guess? What I Didn't: Animation wasn't up to snuff - it wasn't quite as bad as the first series, but it wasn't great either. Plot sometimes relies too heavily on exposition when action would've been better suited. Usually movie science doesn't get to me but man, "Class-C Parasitic Brain Virus"? Really? So the Japanese government are trying to weaponise a "parasitic brain disorder" that 99% of the population already have… because… why? Christ, wouldn't dusting your enemies with LSD be quicker?! Final Verdict: If you want a great Higurashi side-story, this isn't it. What starts off as an intriguing, Stephen King-esque thriller quickly degrades into a hack-and-slash sideshow devoid of sense that seems to do its best to make the audience out to be violence-loving idiots. Or maybe that's just the Class-C Parasitic Brain Virus in me talking.
There is not much to say about this OVA. The animation quality was about the same as Rei. It used already existing soundtracks. The story was interesting, but didn't feel very climactic. I was disappointed to see that many characters didn't make an appearance (Ooishi, Takano, Tomitake, Akasaka, Shion). I was also disappointed that Rika only had about 3 minutes of screen time. The ending was sort of cliche. It's nice to see the main characters again, but don't have too high expectations for this OVA. On a positive note, Kaku is better than Kira.
