1st Higurashi When They Cry Chapter Put on J iPhones
posted on by Egan Loo
The software developer SEAMS has posted the first chapter of 07th Expansion's Higurashi When They Cry sound novel software in Japanese on the iTunes App Store for Apple's iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad mobile devices this week. Even though this release of the suspense horror story is in the original Japanese, it is available in the United States.
The Mangagamer.com company is currently selling the four Higurashi When They Cry chapters as well as two chapters from the Higurashi When They Cry Kai follow-up for Microsoft Windows computers in English.
The game series inspired two television anime series, several video anime projects, two live-action films, and manga adaptations by several artists. Funimation has taken over North American distribution of the first Higurashi television series from Geneon Entertainment, but no announcement has been made yet of future Higurashi anime licenses in the region. Yen Press publishes several of the manga adaptations in North America.
