From Yen Press:

When the minister of construction’s grandson disappears amid protests against the dam project in Hinamizawa, Detective Akasaka is sent from the Tokyo Police to investigate. Posing as a tourist, Akasaka becomes fast friends with Rika Furude, and the little girl almost makes him forget that he’s on a mission to find a kidnapper! But the sightseeing tour takes a sudden turn when Rika delivers a grave warning: Leave Hinamizawa…before you come to regret it…

The story of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni is divided into a total of eight chapters: four "Question" arcs and four "Answer" arcs. Each chapter keeps the same main characters, but ends in a different way. However, each chapter gives valuable answers, hints, and clues to the previous one, while at the same time bringing forth even more mysteries.

The question arcs are:
1. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Onikakushihen
2. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Watanagashihen
3. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Tatarigoroshihen
4. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Himatsubushihen

The answer arcs are:
5. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai - Meakashihen
6. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai - Tsumihoroboshihen
7. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai - Minagoroshihen
8. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai - Matsuribayashi-hen

The side story arcs are:
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Onisarashihen
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Yoigoshihen
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Kataribanashihen
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Utsutsukowashi-hen
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Kokoro Iyashihen
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Hirukowashi-hen
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Jan - Tsubamegaeshihen
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei - Saikoroshihen

And in the end everyone was happy. Or was it...DEAD!!! This story was kinda' weird, really creepy, and in a way, sad. I liked how they continued the story even after Rika died. That was interesting. I love how this story was written. Every arch is amazing and I love how each time you read one more and more questions get piled on. They stop for a second and answer some, but then more questions. Lucky for this series, I don't have a fear of commitments.

That Furude shrine would really be a nice place if that little girl didn't get murdered there about once a week.

This serie called Higurashi no Naku Koro ni is a great sereis from the beginning to the end this is the fourth Question Arc and i think its one of the best Horror Psychological Manga Ever.
I wish all eight answer and question archs would be scanlated.
But If someone like Horro this is a perfect choice to read
