I need to know what show this scene is from. In 2005, I was channel surfing and came across a show on [adult swim] and I got distracted by laughter and children playing. The animation was dated, so it had a Rurouni Kenshin style to it. There were two children, a boy and a girl playing in the forest at night. Then out of nowhere, this huge praying mantis appears and stabs the little girl from behind. I was in 4th grade at the time, so I was traumatized and quickly changed the channel. If you could help me figure out what this scene is from it would be greatly appreciated.

Higurashi Kagome, after being pulled down a well by a demon, finds herself in Feudal Japan, where she learns that a powerful jewel has been reborn inside her body.
