I'm not that attracted by the prices either...
I think I'll just wait for the Sonozaki Futago-tachi translation, regardless of how long it will take.

I'm not THAT surprised, considering the length of those, but 15 a pop would have been a lot friendler.
(and suddenly the french release doesn't seem all that outrageous, eh?)

Official French homepage went live yesterday. (www.hinamizawa.fr)

A lot needs to be fixed yet, but at least the site isn't under construction anymore.

First of all, Higurashi is a Sound Novel and it's much closer to an actual novel than a game. The only interactivity you will find in it is the ability to read optional TIPS that are unlocked after you finish a chapter. Aside from that, all you do is read from the beginning to the end with no choices whatsoever.

Anyway, there are two options at your disposal if you want to read Higurashi in English:

The first one is Sonozaki Futago-tachi's fan translation which has translated the demo that can be found on 07th Expansion's official website. The demo covers Onikakushi-hen (the first arc) in its entirety and can be downloaded here with the English patch pre-installed. They are currently working on the second arc of the series, but you'll need to buy a copy of the original Japanese game in order to use the patch for the rest of the story.

Your second option is MangaGamer's translation. The price they are asking is a bit pricey and their translation leaves to be desired, but this is the best option available if you want to read all of Higurashi as soon as possible. Only the first four arcs are translated so far. The rest will be released monthly starting with Meakashi-hen on February 28.

will Sonozaki Futago-tachi translate the remaining arcs or should we just buy the mangagamer release?

In case anyone hasn't seen yet. Higurashi Kai "Meakashi-hen" (or "Eye Opening Arc") is now available for purchase.

I have both the original sound novels from MangaGamer, PC Version. Can someone tell me if it's possible to extract the music files from the ".arc" file in the program folder? I tried some software related to arc files already, but they don't work with the arc files of the sound novel. I get some error alerts about "unknown file" or "damaged file".

Needless to say I want this just for my own private use.

Yep, it is possible. I managed to extract CGs and sprites some time ago using a program whose name I can't remember. Good luck trying to find it.

Sorry, but I don't where I should post this.
This is a repost from my Tumblr:

What I’m playing is Higurashi Umineko Card Battle Jin (aka, HiguUmi Jin for short).
It’s very NEW game, just released in last October (good chance for new players now, I think)!!

HiguUmi Jin (homepage) download: iOS | Android

It’s different with Higurashi Umineko Card Battle, which has launched for three years as a mobile flash game.

HiguUmi Jin is new, so… anyone plays with me?

It has a tutorial when you start the game.
However, since it's all Japanese, I think it's a bit trouble later.

Let me explain simply the gameplay:

A deck (デッキ) with your own 7 cards is the basic.
Each card has five important points you must care: Satellite (サテライト), ATK (攻撃力) & DEF (防御力), Cost (コスト), Attribute (属性), and Skill (スキル).

By setting cards on a blank field, you can creat your (blue) field.
You can't set on enemy's (red) field, but setting on enemy's cards will start a battle.
If your or enemy's field is set on a same place, it will become blank again.

After 14 turns (7 for each side), who has more field is the winner.

Satellite shows what field the card can take.
I think I don't need explain about ATK & DEF point.
Cost is something like weight. You have a limited maximum cost number based on your level, and the total cost of all 7 cards must not over it.
Attribute shows which attributes the card has.
Skill is card's skill... (increase, decrease, buff, debuff... ATK or DEF)

Moreover, the card can upgrade its rarity by evolution (進化), and its level by strengthening (強化). They have a limit though.

I live outside Japan, you know. But I still can play this game.
I'm not sure it because of my (cr@cked) phone that bought from Japan, or not...

Have you tried changing the store?

Thank you very much for posting this! Looks like a new Sound Novel Chapter to me! The title has this kanji 奉 , right? Can someone tell me how to read it in this context? Matsu?

The new character seems to indicate that the new chapter tells about the past of Hinamizawa, doesn't it?

Spoiler for more of same:


This might be a separate entity in itself.
I thought at first might have something to do with rose gun days, he has dredging up war-theme stuff in a lot of his works.
I already know a bit about hinamizawa past from PS so that why I am doubting it be that.
ひぐらしのなく頃に奉 Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Hou (Hou = offering, present)

Looking at title it reminded me of bear --> 奉持つ

Saburou/Ken

Sorry, I should have thanked you earlier. I hope the new stuff will be translated.

I have another question, maybe somebody knows. Mion and Shion have two uncles by the name of Saburou and Ken, as mentioned in Minagoroshi-hen. I think they might be Akane's siblings but maybe they're her husband's brothers. Do you know whose brothers they are?
