[OVA] Higurashi no Naku Koroni Rei: Episode 4

I'm not exactly sure whether I'm happy or pissed off about the way this arc ended. On one hand, it presented a solution you really couldn't find any fault, and it wrapped up fairly quickly and efficiently; On the other hand, the ending basically nullified everything we saw in this arc up to the finale--it feels like we were just played by the story writer.

What seemed like a new puzzle early in the arc turned out to be no more than a mirage that ended in a fairly simple metaphysics discussion. This is quite a big curve ball since we basically went through the whole arc for almost nothing. But after all, this is an OVA, we can't really expect too much serious plot to be packed into so little time.

There is one more episode left for this OVA series, which I think would probably be another silly episode just like the first one.
