No Lesbian Stuff?

I read an argument that Satoko doesn't have romantic feelings towards Rika; rather she has a really bad case of co-dependency. I thought that line of logic made sense, but then I see this from the new opening...

Hanyuu is Eua?

So I'm guessing Hanyuu never contacted looping Rika in Gou. It was Eua all along. What do you guys think? Is it really Hanyuu or is it that stinky no good Featherine Eua? ]]

Hanyuu's origins etc (Kotohogushi-hen excerpts)

Here are my translations of relevant scenes from the Switch version of Kotohogushi-hen. Keep in mind that Kotohogushi-hen was originally a short story by Kanou Kiichi (the lead Alchemist author) and nearly all of these details were added in the VN version by Nakamura Shinsuke, so they don't necessarily agree with Ryukishi07's view of Hanyuu (in fact, Kotohogushi-hen tends to conflict with the few details we do get about her in Matsuribayashi-hen, and is probably outright incompatible with Kamikashimashi-hen). The console ports also add a note just before the Kakera Tsumugi section to point out that Kotohogushi-hen is based on parts of Hanyuu's memories that have been sealed away and altered over time, so even when taken on its own, it's no…

English Dub

They did it. They English dubbed Higurashi Gou. I don't think they needed to do that but here it is. It's not the cast from 2006 or whenever they dubbed the original. Well that's my report. Gonna find the cast names.

Keiichi- Khoi Dao

Rika- Apphia Yu

Rena- Emi Lo

Mion/Shion- Michelle Rojas

Satoko- Brittany Lauda

So far I found only the first 2 episodes dubbed. It's a mixed bag. The male actors sound fine. The girls try to match their Japanese counterparts. Rena, Mion and Rika's voices are okay; there are times where they sound just right, and other times they sound too squeechy or wooden. Hanyuu speaks as though she barely knows Rika. Satoko is the worst.

Good news is, this isn't so bad that the world stopped moving. I still love this series.

Onidamashi-hen: What i think happened

I'm probably wrong but I'm gonna try to make sense of whatever the hay heck happened. This is based off my observations, the rules of XY & Z, and comments of other peoples' thoughts that I read.

  • 1 Rena and the Syndrome (Rule X)
  • 2 Keiichi and the Syndrome (Rule X)
  • 3 Tomitake, Takano, and the Clinic (Rule Y)
  • 4 Rika, Satoko, and a knife
  • 5 The Nurse and Keiichi's fate

Rena killed Rina Mamiya and Teppei Hojo during Keiichi's 2 day visit in Tokyo. No one noticed that Rena was struggling. No one had club activities or at least any reason to go to the trash heap at the old construction site. So nobody discovered the bodies or Rena in the act. Also she MUST have murdered both of them to “Protect her Dad and their happiness”, because while Rina was her direct c…

Onidamashi V Onikakushi

This is where I'm going to be laying out my thoughts about how this new story deviates from the original arc.


  • 1 June 19th: Watanagashi 
  • 2 June 20th: Ooishi appears
  • 3 June 21st: USODA! / Angel Mort (Keiichi eavesdrops on Mion+Rena in both)
  • 4 June 22nd: Angel Mort / Usoda!
  • 5 Teppei took the fall?




Ooishi said something VERY interesting about 1982's death at Angel Mort. They caught the guy. A good-for-nothing hooked on narcotics. But a while after he was arrested, a child under his care went missing. Ooishi also mentioned that this individual slit his own thoat.

That's significantly different from the usual Irie/Yamainu lie of "a crazed drug addict who wanted to imitate the Series of Mysterious Deaths…

Higurashi character birthdays and ages

TL;DR: Ryukishi07 says Rika and Satoko are sixth-graders and the other kids are middle schoolers. Their implied ages on June 19 1983 are 11 for Rika and Satoko, 13 for Rena, 14 for Keiichi and Mion/Shion, and 15 for Satoshi. The anime, manga and console ports support these ages, but the live-action movies and TV drama aged the kids up, probably by about 3 years.

How old the Higurashi characters are is a topic that's led to quite a few debates, in both the English and Japanese fandoms. These days, the main characters' birthdays are fairly solidly confirmed - they're listed on the official Hou website, in the gacha card details in Higurashi Mei, and (apparently) in this official booklet (though note that this info first became public in Dece…

it may look like I'm chugging away on updating article templates like I know what I'm doing, but do I? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Don't ever make the mistake of thinking I have a plan. I've never had a plan. I've run this wiki for seven years and not ONCE have I ever thought ahead. Not ONCE.

Unfortunately, we have to talk about Mangagamer.

Yeah, yeah. I know. Nobody wants to hear about Mangagamer or their sprites anymore. We're all mad or mad at mad people or just tired of hearing about it. 

Doesn't change that this is a wiki for Higurashi and that we are obligated to post ripped sprites (when the sprite sets come out, that is) for the sake of information on the sprites.

One thing I'd like to make clear is that these sprites are drawn by a hentai artist, feature heavy anatomical problems (much like the originals...) and that regardless of how much we like them or hate them, we have to have them up when the Mangagamer Steam release comes up. Because these sprites are so different from the other two sets in style, it's worth noting the artists and linking to a wikipedia/other doc…

Hanyu has got to be one of the most useless characters ever.

She's only slightly more useful than Jar Jar Binks.  I would not want to have her at my back in any real life situation, either as a god or a human.  More than half the time Rika ends up having to comfort her and help her pull through even though she is the human with her very existence being threatened while Hanyu is supposed to be the diety in control of things.  No wonder Rika always acts so cross at her.  And then at toward the end it turns out that Rena and Satako and others encating "I'm sorry" was just an iteration of her doing it because there was nothing else she could do.  Seriously, what the fuck kind of godess are you if that's all you can do and in order to do something substantial you have to incarnate yourself in human form.…

Higurashi greenlit on Steam

Well, exactly what the title says. After about a year or two, Higurashi has finally been greenlit for release via steam. I'd bet we can expect a release within the next month or two, and probably for the same price as the one on mangagamer.com (about USD$15)

This might segue into Kai also being released over steam (as Mangagamer does have the license for that as well), but only time/sales will tell.

Improving Higurashi Wiki

We have done a lot of good things for this Wikia in the past few days, so cheers everyone. However, this wikia is (like many) is nowhere near perfect.

  • We still have to do many things, because we're lacking a lot of information from the Higurashi Media.
  • We have loads of hidden pages that are easily forgotten.
  • Some pages STILL spell the character names in ways other than using the Hepburn Romanization way.
  • Many Character pages really NEEDS to be expanded. Some character pages lack Information, Personality, Images, Appearances Description. Some of the work on these pages doesn't do the characters any justice.
  • Plot Summaries are also lacking. This includes Sound Novels, Anime episodes, some manga arcs, Matsuri arcs, and the live action movies. Yes even the live ac…

Galleries and You: Why I need you to calm down with your images

Hi everyone, I'm back again, and while I'm managing to stay back I would like to address something I think is very important: the placement, and amount, of images on articles.

You've probably long heard me harping on you to "put your images in the gallery, that's what it's there for", but many of you probably don't understand why I keep going on about this or why I find it so important. My reasons are but two in number and quite simple.

  1. Space concerns

Revamping the 'Death' and "Kills" section of the template

Instead of writing what number of times the character had died (which really makes no fucking sense considering how these scenarios repeat all the time so each character likely has 'died' more times than the series lets on) we should instead list the scenarios in which the character has died.

Obviously for Tomitake and Rika it's "all scenarios except for Matsuribayashi-hen, Miotsukushi-hen, etc." the ones in which they explicitly survive. But for other characters it would need to be listed differently.

As for their "Kills" count... I'm thinking actually of making sections for characters based on their crime count. For Keiichi this would mean the BB gun incidents as well as scenarios like Onikakushi-hen and Tatarigoroshi-hen, and for Satoko t…

Basically I was reading Satoko's character page, and I read When the Watanagashi Festival came around, Tamae was killed and a drunk bum was charged for her murder, though many believe Satoshi had killed her to protect his sister.

and on Satoshi's character page:

While it is suggested that he may have witnessed his aunt's death in the games, in the anime, Satoshi is said to have killed her or was under so much stress that he believed he had. However, in Matsuribayashi-hen it was revealed that the "drug addict" who supossedly killed his aunt was only a scapegoat made by the Yamainu by Irie's request to cover up Satoshi's disapperance.

And a long time ago, Satoshi's kill count was "1 (probably)".

Another thing...

I'm a little weary of the idea of organizing the TIPS in accordance to the anime episodes as well.

Looking at the TIPS from Minagoroshi-hen, quite a few of them don't exactly correspond to any episode... Actually, when you think about it, there's no specific episode that a lot of them correspond to. Take Satoko's Trap Lectures for example. There's no time that they really exist within the anime because in Tatarigoroshi-hen, there's maybe like 3 days of school before Satoko gets into trouble with her uncle.

That being said, I suggest that we reorganize the articles by arc. The TIPS are usually only covered by the sound novel only, so honestly I think organizing them by anime is a bit ridiculous. Also, consistency and stuff. Once the summarie…

We need to work on these summaries.

You know what?

Organizing them by anime episode titles isn't going to work. Nobody has written a single summary based off of the episodes and frankly, it's a waste of time because it leaves out vital details that the plot summary would need.

I suggest that we remove those subheadings for the episodes and just begin summarizing based off of the novel. It would be done quicker because then we wouldn't have to go through the episodes and summarize through there.

Please let me know what you think.

If nobody posts what they think I will probably do it anyways because it's been years and the fact that we haven't had summaries for these articles for years is fucking ridiculous.

This time I am legitimately pissed. We need to do something about this.

on Hanyuu's actual morality

Given the implications in EP6, saying that Hanyuu was intentionally not helping Rika because of her cruelness, should we include that or not?

It's still just an implication. It's not entirely confirmed - relations between Bernkastel and Featherine are very strained in EP6~8, and it's obvious that Bern hates Featherine- but can that really be brought back to Higurashi? Can we really confirm that Hanyuu is as cruel as her intentionally neglectful actions in Higurashi make us think?
