The 58th year of Shouwa, early summer.
It’s June, and the summer heat has arrived earlier than it does most years.
By day there are crickets, and by night there are cicadas.

We’re in Hinamizawa, a small village in the countryside.
There are fewer than two thousand people here. But every year, there is an event.

This event is a mysterious death.

On a certain day in June, someone dies, and someone else goes missing.
The series of deaths is connected to the upheaval surrounding the dam construction project.
A murder case that was covered up is being reenacted.
Is it a conspiracy? A coincidence? Or perhaps a curse?

Someone who was supposed to be there isn’t.
Someone who wasn’t supposed to be there is.

Someone who was alive last night is dead now.
And someone who is here right now isn’t alive.

So, there is no way to avert tragedy. There is no choice but to give up.
But don’t give up.

Only you can stand up to this.

Higurashi When They Cry Hou - Ch.3 Tatarigoroshi reviews and comments

Translated by

[I pretended very lazily here that you read the previous Chapters] [I'm going to spoil nothing here as best I can]-Third Of eight main chapters of a horror sound novel series. -Self Treatment as well as the previous Chapters, so:---new Character sprites (old ones available)---old Wallpapers (look really lame)---no Voiceover (perhaps better so, because of Atmosphere)---text in English (alternatively Japanese)--- Original Sounds and Music (Age of the Sounds can be heard herras)---mod support (i.e. the Above points can be changed by Mods)-I won't tell anything about the story here, but the Feeling of the Chapter changes compared to before. But I can assure you that it does not lose its Intensity-it tells, also a self-contained Story, but contributes to the Overall Action-It is the third of 4 so-called Question Arcs, i.e. there are Hints given here, but in itself more Questions Own as answered. -It is still a linear Sound novel, so no Decisions-It is the longest Question-Arc-This Chapter was adapted in episodes 9-13 Of the Anime "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni" (highly recommended, but you should only read the Visual Novel) As always, be Fun Reading;) (Not having Fun is ... ) impossible

Higurashi When They Cry Hou-Ch.3 Tatarigoroshi is a Sound novel in which Sound, Backdrop and characters together create the Atmosphere of the Game, and the Successor of Higurashi When They Cry Hou-Ch.2 Watanagashi. Once Again, in an alternative Scenario from the Point of view of Keiichi Maebara, we are told about his life in The Village of Hinamizawa, where he spends carefree Days with his Friends. But a Week before the Watanagashi festival, those Days end abruptly when a certain Person returns to the Village after a long Time, disrupting peace in Keiichi's Life. And when the Watanagashi festival is near, Keiichi makes a momentous Decision ... Personally, I believe that the third Chapter of the Higurashi series is the gloomiest so far. In the first two Chapters, Information has already been issued and Questions have been asked, some of which are answered In the third Chapter, but the third Chapter itself raises questions again, leaving the Reader with the same questions. The Story itself is very well written, the Reader becomes one with Keiichi, from whose Point of view everything is told. The Higurashi series proves once again that it rightfully belongs to the Genre of "Psychohorror," as there are also many Places in the third Part that make the reader feel the Fear and Paranoia of the Situation, which is one of the Charms of Higurashi When They Cry Hou. Other important Charms are the Characters that grow ever more close to your Heart, the more of the entire Story you read and the entire Plot of the Series. Higurashi When They Cry Hou-Ch.3 Tatarigoroshi gets from me 9 out of 10 Points and the following Predicates: Fear, just Fear STIRB Definitely cobold-appropriate
