Our Tea Parties are Rokkenjima’s biggest event, in which we rally When They Cry fans from all across the internet to join us on the forum to read through, analyse and celebrate the story in question together. It’s the perfect chance for new readers to get involved and share their speculations with other new readers, but also for old readers to take a look back and consider what’s great about the work, perhaps analysing it from a new perspective.

On the forum we have two topics for each arc: one for newcomers to discuss without fear of spoilers, and one for veterans to speak freely about the arc. We also encourage our more creative members to contribute to the Tea Party with fanworks of the arc in our Higurashi Fanart topic, and other appropriate topics.

At the conclusion of each Tea Party we record a spoiler-free podcast incorporating all of the discussion and showcasing fanworks produced throughout the Tea Party, providing the participants with a platform to voice their theories on the mysteries of Hinamizawa. If you’re reading Higurashi and want to be a part of our podcast, we’d love to try you out! Just hop on over to our Podcast Applications Topic and express your interest!
