The two-month wait since the last Kira episode has ended! 07th Expansion finally released the next one! Straying away from the completely drunk in perverted fan-service of the first to a more kawaii and moe mahou-shoujo atmosephere, this actually made a good comeback as well as a flag-triggering event for the next episode which will be aired 2 months from now.
The episode is titled “Bewitching Battle – Chapter: ~Never~” and starts with Rika having a dream about being an all grown-up mahou shoujo woman trying to rescue an also grown-up Satoko from the clutches of the Four Generals. Then they wake up only to find out that Rika transferred to yet another world along with Satoko – a world similar to the original Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni canon, but somehow different. The Rika of that world seemed to be a magical girl that protects the peace of Hinamizawa, which our ‘current‘ Rika oh so despised.
Although this one has been out since September 22 (Meh, I just got back from a week long vacation), I still decided to post this anyway. The link is below. Enjoy!
