Average Rating

The infamous series of unexplainable murders in Hinamizawa have been solved and the chains of fate have broken due to the efforts of Rika Furude and her friends. Rika believes she has finally obtained the normal and peaceful life she desired with her friends; however, she is proven wrong when the wheels of fate begin turning once again after an unfortunate accident. Rika suddenly finds herself in a "perfect" world, the constant cycle of brutal killings having never taken place, where all of her friends are content and satisfied. Not wanting to abandon the world that she fought so hard for, she learns she must destroy an essential "key" to get back. But can Rika abandon the faultless world she is given the chance to live in, after all of her battles have brought her this far?

Almost dropped due to episode 1 (comedic episode)
Start from episode 2, that’s where the action begins (hehe).



the first episode of Higurashi no Naku ni Rei. It doesn’t quite fit with the rest of the Higurashi no Naku that we know.


A silly epilogue/ova to the Higurashi franchise. If you enjoyed the comedic antics of the cast in the main show you will enjoy this.


Just some fan service, if you’re into that.
Nothing like the TV series.


Not the strongest part in when they cry but pretty enjoyable to watch.


i dont even know what to say at this point when it comes to Higurashi
