Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei

>> June 20, 2008

The OVA set due for late this year/early 2009 has finally been confirmed to be titled "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei." The story was originally released as a fandisc game which was released at Comiket 71 on December 31, 2006 as a token of gratitude to the fans. (Rei means "Gratitude") It takes place directly continuing the final scene of the last episode of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai. If there is only one arc in the OVA, it will be titled "Saikoroshi-hen." If they decide to have more than one arc, it will also include "Hirukowashi-hen," however it is unlikely that it will also have the latter.
