Wow. It’s not as powerful sounding as the previous two op songs for Higurashi no Naku Koro ni but the animations kicks the other two out of the park. It sort of makes me a little less bitter over the wait for the Umineko anime (and bitter over how crappy Jessica’s design is?) and really, it rekindled my love of Hanyuu. And I’ve missed you too, emo Rika. I don’t really care for the ED but it might grow on me. It sounds like something from Jigoku Shoujo, truthfully. I like Taishou A much better (aestetically and musically) but the part with Rika and her mother is just too sweet.
