From Yen Press:

Itís been almost a year since Natsumi and her family moved from the town of Onigafuchi. Her grandmother, a native of Hinamizawa village, fears that they will be cursed for abandoning the mountains, but Natsumi has never been happier, making new friends and enjoying school life. When a terrible gas explosion in Hinamizawa wipes out everyone in the village, her grandmother is convinced it is the wrath of the village god, Oyashiro-sama. Natsumiís family has never taken Grandmotherís beliefs seriously, but her devotion to Oyashiro-sama has taken a frightening turn. Have the old womanís fanatical convictions gone too far?

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 - Onikakushi Hen
2. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Watanagashi Hen
3. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Tatarigoroshi Hen
4. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Himatsubushi Hen

The answer arcs are:
5. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai - Meakashi Hen
6. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai - Tsumihoroboshi Hen
7. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai - Minagoroshi Hen
8. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai - Matsuribayashi Hen

The side story arcs are:
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Onisarashi Hen
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Yoigoshi Hen
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Kataribanashi Hen
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai - Utsutsukowashi Hen
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Kokoro Iyashi Hen
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Hirukowashi Hen

Just like the guy said below me, didnt expect this but again i was expecting something like that. But anyway :

story: love it, it will start of slow like usual, but then you will be like " What?!" then you will continue till the end. Story ended the rigth way for a higurashi series.

Art: very good art, nothing to complain about, alot of blood especially.

Start/End : well lets just say very nice beginning, but fucked up ending

ovarall: could have been longer but, i guess its just a short story, but still worth reading.

Okay. Second favorite arc! I like how this one takes place after the Great Hinamizawa Disaster ( what was so great about it?) and I also liked how the Kimiyoshi family finally had a part in the story. (they were the third great house in Hinamizawa) You know, think what you like but I like murder and mayhem, so of course this is ganna one of my favorites (Yes, there will be blood.)

I loved the ending the most. If you read it you know what I'm talking about. It was like BAM, never saw it coming. That's another reason I love Higurashi, You don't know what to expect.
