Higurashi no Naku Koro ni =/= Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai

Ah fuck I can't believe I've done this. I watched the Second Season of Higurashi before I watched the first, has anyone else does this? The names are practically the same.

So will the first season still be enjoyable if I already know the ending of the 2nd season?

For the record: No it is not obvious when you watch the second that it's not the first, nothing seemed out of place since it started off at a start of the loop. What happened in the previous loops were also well explained with flashbacks.

Have I ruined the first season?
