Part of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei, Hirukowashi-hen (昼壊し編, Daybreak Chapter) is based on the fighting game Higurashi Daybreak.
An English fan translation was released on March 28th, 2015.
While on a picnic, Ryūgū Rena accidentally ends up swallowing one of a pair of magical magatama, one of which is red while the other is white. Legend says that the person who has the red magatama will be attracted to whomever has the white one. The legend is apparently true as Rena falls, in turn, for Tomitake Jirō, Takano Miyo and Ōishi.
Hirukowashi-hen was altered for its release on the second Kizuna game. Because Hanyū will not be revealed until the next Kizuna game, Hanyū has been removed and her role taken over mostly by Rika, with Satoko taking over Rika's original role. Shion has also been added. Additionally, for unknown reasons, instead of falling in love with Ōishi, Rena falls in love with Irie, and the characters play baseball instead of mahjong to win the magatama.
