MangaGamer Announces Higurashi Bundle!

Feb 10th 2011

February 10, 2011 - We at MangaGamer are proud to announce a bundle set of the final four Higurashi Chapters!

Our latest release, Higurashi When They Cry Kai, is a bundle set of the final four chapters of Higurashi: Meakashi, Tsumihoroboshi, Minagoroshi, and Matsuribayashi, also known as the "Answer Arcs" which reveal the truth behind the first four chapters in Higurashi When They Cry. The bundle will be priced at 34.95 Euros, a discount for those buying all 4 chapters.

Meakashi
She dropped her beads in the sand. So the girl cried.
For one hundred years, the girl searched the sands.


They might be in the ocean, not the sand. So the girl cried.
For one hundred years, the girl searched the ocean.


They might be in the mountains, not the ocean. So the girl cried.
How many years will pass before the girl wonders if she really dropped them?

The first of Answer arcs, Meakashi is told from the perspective of Shion Sonozaki, and begins to shed some light on the truth behind chapter two, Watanagashi. This chapter begins long before Keiichi moves to Hinamizawa and also reveals the story of Satoshi and his disappearance.

Tsumihoroboshi
The first time, I would try harder to avoid
the inevitable tragedy.


The second time, I would be disgusted with
the inevitable tragedy.


The third time, my disgust would turn into anguish.
The seventh time, I'd be laughing by then.

All seems to be going well for the characters in this series until Rena's family encounters its share of trouble. Rena decides to take matters into her own hands and fight back to protect her father. But can she go through with it? Can she really find a way to save her father and bring happiness to them all?

And what secrets lie written within Miyo's scrapbook? Will Rena be forced to face Oyashiro-sama's curse again this year? Will she be the one to find herself demoned away? Has Keiichi finally started to recall the tragedies that befell him before? Will any of them be able to atone for their sins?

Minagoroshi
I wanted to know what's outside the well.
So I tried to claw my way up from there.


I wanted to know what's outside the well.
So I continued to climb even when I fell and injured myself.


I finally realize.
The higher I climb, the more pain I feel when I fall.


When my curiosity toward the world and my physical pain became equal......
I finally understood the meaning of the frog in the well.

Told primarily from the perspective of Furude Rika, this is the chapter in which the truth is finally revealed. When our story begins, Rika is barely able to suppress her surprise - all the dice were coming up 6s. There was little more she could ask for. Would this finally be the chance to avoid the Hinamizawa Tragedy? Luck was on her side, and Rika couldn't help but finally hold hope, when the law of averages took over and the dice came up 1. Will they be able to work together to pull off another miracle and overturn the dice?

What about the fates of Tomitake Jirou, Takano Miyo, and Furude Rika herself? Are Oyashiro-sama's Curse and the Hinamizawa Disaster truly an unavoidable destiny, or is there something pulling all the strings behind the scenes?

The truth behind Oyashiro-sama's Curse will finally be revealed, but what price must paid for that knowledge

Matsuribayashi
Everyone has a right to be happy.
To receive it is what's difficult.


Everyone has a right to be happy.
To fulfill it is what's difficult.


I have a right to be happy.
To compromise is what's difficult.

All the players and all the pieces have finally been arranged. This will be the end one way or another, but will be the end Rika and the others seek? Or will it be the end they're struggling so hard to prevent?
