Big news has come forth! The time has finally come for our questions of the town of Hinamizawa to be answered! Mangagamer has announced that they are releasing the fifth chapter of Higurashi on steam and their site on April 28th. This fifth installment of the franchise is the first of the ‘Answer Arcs’, aka Kai. Himatsubushi concluded the ‘Questions Arcs’ so, now readers will finally be able to test their theories against the truth of what really happened. Meakashi provides the full story of the Watanagashi arc, so fans of Mion and Shion will have a lot to enjoy here! But be warned, it gets pretty nasty. Please look forward to meeting Satoshi in Mangagamer’s release of Meakashi later this month!
While on the topic, have you heard of our Higurashi Tea Party? It’s an event which sees the entire Rokkenjima community join together to discuss and share theories regarding Higurashi’s chapters. So far we’ve covered Onikakushi and Watanagashi, but we’re still looking for newcomers to Higurashi to join us for a podcast on Tatarigoroshi! If you’re reading along with the Steam release and feel like joining us on the podcast, be sure to apply here! And even veterans to Higurashi can join in for some new discussion and celebration of the work on the forum. Let’s solve the mysteries of Hinamizawa together and have some fun!
