Higurashi Fair: The Real-Life Watanagashi

A Higurashi fair will be held on May 31st to June 29th. It will be themed after Watanagashi (Cotton Drifting), for a real-life Watanagashi festival. To catch the atmosphere, it will also extend to a shrine that is to be named "Furude Shrine" for the days the fair is going on. It will hold mainly at the Animate headquarters in Ikebukuro. You can buy lots of limited-edition goodies from the festival, including Musubi file.04 that will not be officially released until late June. Additionally, I would like to die now. Source: [1]

The cover for Musubi File.03 has been released. This time it is none other than Satoko! I really like how most of the covers show a similar trend... Anyway, it contains episodes 17 and 18 of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai, with of course extras! It will be on sale 5/23. You can also get the limited edition version with Box. You can buy it at almost any DVD store in Japan, or you can order it online at such sites as and . Source: Official site


Higurashi Photobook: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Illustrations

>> May 13, 2008

A new photobook is coming out titled "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Illustrations" (ひぐらしのなく頃に イラストレーションズ). It will be released on May 24th (2008.05.24) and will cost ¥2,500 (which is about US$25 in America's current economy). The images in the photobook will be all of the images used to promote Higurashi throughout it's entire anime airing. That includes all magazine illustrations, calendar pictures, box art, etc. Don't worry though- all of the images with be clean and textless unlike previous releases. Time to make some wallpapers and posters! Source: [1]


Umineko no Naku Koro ni to be animated!

>> May 2, 2008

The third story of the 'When they Cry' series is finally going to see it's adaption into the animation world. The animation will, like Higurashi, be animated by Studio Deen. The official site of higurashi - - has created a special page with small bits of information regarding the Umineko animation, which you can see directly here. Umineko is the third story in the 'When They Cry' series (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni being the first, and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai being the second). It made it's debut as a visual novel on August 17th of 2007. It currently has two releases with another planned for release, and more being made. _____ Regarding the site, though a site for Higurashi, I will continue to update on information and news of Umineko. If necessary, I will consider branching off into it's own blog. So from now on (for now) I will update with information of the Umineko series. For information regarding Umineko no Naku Koro ni only, you can here: Umineko no Naku Koro ni


Higurashi Third Series, Not Third Season

>> May 1, 2008

It has been reported that news for the Higurashi third season will not be a third season, but a third series. It will be released in the form of OVA (Original Video Animation). (For those who do not know, OVA's are usually around the length of 2 episodes.) It is still unconfirmed whether the series will be based off of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei (two stories that were originally released on a fandisc in 2006), however suspicions are still high that that will be the case.
