Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Wiki
Angel Mort
First Appearance Onikakushi-hen

Angel Mort is a restaurant in Okinomiya owned by Yoshirō, a Sonozaki family member. All of the servers are young women who must wear rather revealing uniforms. Through three seasons of the anime, none have received names, though When They Cry Wiki has affectionately nicknamed a recurrent lass "Waitress Glasses-chan." Sonozaki Shion works there in many arcs. However, in the third season's Watadamashi-hen, Sonozaki Mion actually pretends to be her. This is a significant difference since at that point in the arc, as in Watanagashi-hen, Keiichi does not know Mion actually has a sister and believes she is Mion in disguise.

The specialty of Angel Mort appears to be various coffee drinks, baked goods, and desserts. It is very popular and certain events even draw people from around Japan.

Kagebōshi-hen reveales that Angel Mort is actually a restaurant chain. It also has a franchise in Kakiuchi, the city where Kimiyoshi Natsumi lives.

Role in the Story

While Angel Mort does not have any real significance to the mystery, it does appear frequently.


  • The lower half of the outfit of the The Seven Sisters of Purgatory, characters in Umineko no Naku Koro ni, and the blue Gauntlet girls in Ciconia no Naku Koro ni, resemble that of the Angel Mort's waitress uniform.
  • "Mort" is French for "death" or "dead," and the restaurant's name could be translated as "Angel Death," "Death Angel," or "Dead Angel. While a different kanji, Shion's shi is a homonym for "death."
  • All club members have, at one point, worn the Angel Mort uniform.
