This article's translations for the new manga names are pretty silly.

"Oni Okoshi-hen" (Build a Demon Arc) should be "Demon-Kindling Arc".

"Hoshi Watashi-hen" (Deliver a Star Arc) should be "Star-Crossing Arc".

Finally, the Higurashi Jun manga is actually called "Higurashi Meguri". We got a tweet from the artist where they use the proper reading of the 巡 kanji: https://twitter.com/zorane_chama/status/1448972475069394948

Yeah, I've always wanted a manga focused on Oryou.

Seriously, these spinoffs are getting ridiculous

Well, all of this has been part of the 20th Anniversary Campaign, so we’re probably still going to be getting more merch and spin-offs counting down to that big Watanagashi Celebration they announced at the end of the anime

you are 12 years late to notice that ( joking tone).

there is actually a small spinoff where the kid of the future that 8s shown in this manga murders an American soldier that gets lots in hinamisawa. funny, i had not put 2 plus 2 regarding oryus age and how she would be a young women in WWI and the village leader for that spin off.

Build a Demon Arc

Okoshi does not mean build, it means to start a fire. I'm guessing this happened because you used a machine translator and it said build, but in that case it means to build a fire specifically, not building in general.
