Hajisarashi-hen (羞晒し編, Embarrassment Chapter) is an extra arc included as a light novel in the first-press limited version of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Matsuri. It was later adapted into a drama CD, a visual novel arc (in Sui and Entergram's Hō), and the first episode of the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei OVA. This arc is mostly about fanservice and serves as an epilogue to Matsuribayashi-hen.

Just like most of the arcs, Hajisarashi-hen is told from the viewpoint of Maebara Keiichi.
The story is essentially a boys-against-girls battle, with the club punishment games as the main weapon. Being that the boys side is severely lacking in members, Maebara Keiichi finds himself backed up by the other "Soul Brothers", a group consisting of himself, Ōishi Kuraudo, Irie Kyōsuke, and Tomitake Jirō.
