As a note during your stay, you may be confused by the various concepts that the series presents. Before you go looking for answers, you should finish watching at least "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni" and "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai". As the anime cannot go into alot of detail, you should also consider reading the manga and visual novels to obtain a better understanding.
Please, don't hesitate to ask questions.

Warning: Minagoroshi-hen is the penultimate arc of the series, and I assume you have already read the previous arcs...

I'm translating the manga (progress: 30%), to practice my Japanese. Not sure when I can complete, since my group is lacking translators...

Is Higurashi called "When They Cry - Higurashi" in all the Japanese work, or "Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni"?

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni but they also use the When They Cry title except that it's written in small letters. The anime adaptation drop the When They Cry completely though.

Well, you could always hunt down the episodes in a torrent or something, but you should probably support sales. We have to get Kai released to the masses somehow.

I recommend the series, although the animation is a bit, well, let's just say it's infamous for stuff like kaoge (particularly in the first season). But the story is good/interesting and the characters are lovable (and a bit scary at times. ). There's also plenty of "wtf" moments to throw you off, particularly going into the second arc.

If you're still unsure, I suggest watching it elsewhere first via torrent or something, then, if you like the first couple of episodes, buy it.

While it's far from being the best version of Higurashi, the anime adaptation, even with its flaws, is still good and is a nice introduction to the series. You might want to read the Sound Novel and/or manga afterward if you liked what you've seen, though.

Thank you all so much for the recommendations. I think I will pick up the series.

PS: What does kaoge mean?

I'd say it is worth buying. If you liked Evangelion, you'll like Higu too, as it is pretty twisted as well.

Odd-looking facial expressions. And I mean odd-looking in a bad way.

In its defense, the facial expressions are usually well done throughout the series, since a good deal of the storyline takes its direction from the reactions of the characters.
