We at MangaGamer are proud to announce the upcoming release of Higurashi: Minagoroshi-hen, available on May 31st. Minagoroshi-hen marks the 7th chapter in the Higurashi series. 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. Shion has remembered her promise to Satoshi and is taking care of Satoko, Rena has solved her family issues on her own, Keiichi has made the right decisions…all the dice are 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: Satoko’s Uncle, Teppei, had come back. Just as Keiichi managed to pull off a miracle and save Rena before, will he be able to pull off another one and save Satoko? Can the force of their combine wills turn this horrible 1 into another 6?
But more importantly, even if they manage to change Satoko’s fate, what about the fates of Tomitake Jirou, Takano Miyo, and Furude Rika herself? Even though Keiichi saved his friends in the last chapter, he couldn’t change the fates of those three. 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?
