I found this i think sometime...last year????? or the year before or this year something like that, and i found it again today and i want to point out how stupid this argument is.
Higurashi isn't MEANT for little kids and if parents ignore the rating on the DVD that's THEIR problem, not the anime industry's. They actually put warnings and stuff and i seriously doubt the DVD will say something like, "A boy named Keiichi meets and bunch of kids at a new school in a new town and they are happy friends forever!!!!" I'm sure, parents will say, "Hey, this DVD is a muder mystery rated 16+!!!! it says something about paranoia and killing people but let's just buy it and show it to our below 16 kids!!!!"
How dumb. Like there aren't worse shows/movie here in the US or in other places.
Even if it didn't have a description, parents should pay attention to the ratings. and the title???? Like parents will actually buy and let their kids watch something called "When They Cry" written with blood and rated M!!!!!
