Default Higurashi Season 2 Canceled

It seems that the lack of fansubbing for the week has not been exactly accidental. There just simply isn't any Higurashi this week. So I never understood why the axe murder has anything to do with this, but now comes the question of when they would show it again. I do hope it's soon...

The article I read on that said that they hadn't even established a link between the anime and the murder. My guess as to why they canceled it is because people are sensitive to violent things after they happen and Higurashi just happens to be quite bloody. xD

It wasn't just Higurashi that was canceled, apparently they didn't air the last episode of... I think it was School Days, because it showed a school girl in a murder scene. Them not airing that episode of a different anime just reinforces my "people are too sensitive and need to toughen up" theory.

Now, don't get me wrong, it's a shame that the girl murdered her dad with an axe, but really, that sort of thing happens often in America. Well, not the same situation, but murders are common here. Had this happened in America, I doubt the shows would've been canceled because Americans are used to that kind of stuff happening (we may not like it, but, face it, our crime rate is way higher than Japan's is).

I found out, I was mad.

First, School Days (Nice Boat, by the way), and then, Higurashi-Kai.

Well it seems that other TV stations continued to show it anyway, so I guess no harm was done in that aspect (just a ~1/2 week delay).
