After recalling arcs 1, 3, and 6, I have a different theory with regards to Takano Miyo.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but my guess is it's included with the PSP Mahjong game?

There was a reference in Tsumihoroboshi. It was a urban legend, apparently called "the Purple Mirror". Does anyone have any more information regarding it?

It's a Japanese urban legend that states one should forget the term "purple mirror" before they turn 20 years of age or they will die an early death.

Why it's the term "purple mirror" I can't even begin to guess.

So people have been asking me about a certain character who was introduced in Higurashi Kizuna 4. Just a few notes:
  • The following will most likely be incomplete and/or inaccurate.
  • As of writing this, I'm only about half-way through the related arc, and I haven't played it for about a month .
  • My Japanese is not very good.
  • Some of this knowledge is based on Katautsushi-hen (manga).
If you don't want to spoiled, don't read...
Spoiler for The purple-horned girl in Kizuna 4 and the related arc (MAJOR SPOILERS):

Thank you. I played through this arc, but you understood it a lot better than I did. I hope you continue to update the summary when you finish Kizuna 4. I'm really interested in how Alchemist handles the "new character"'s backstory.

(All Matsuri/Kizuna/DS arcs ARE done by people from Alchemist, not Ryukishi07, right...?)

Where did Katautsushi-hen come from anyway? It's not an official arc, is it? I thought it was just artist interpretation.

Ryukishi07 would have at least had a hand in writing the story. The manga equivalent is proof of that.

Sorry, I keep editing my other post. ><;

I guess he supervises the Matsuri/Kizuna arcs like he does with the manga.

When you say the manga equivalent, are you referring to Katautsushi-hen? I won't spoil it, but reading further into Kotohogushi-hen, the events doesn't really match up with the interpretation in Katautsushi-hen. I thought it was originally a oneshot. I have read the online scanlation of it, but I'm wondering what book it originally came from...?

Katautsushi-hen was not written by Ryukishi07? Oops. I guess some of it was canon in the end though.

Yeah. It's still a good oneshot though. XD I think the artist/author for Katautsushi-hen just took some of the known information on Ouka and Hanyuu to help create that story. =)

Katautsushi-hen is an oneshot from "Comic A La Carte", published by Kadokawa Shoten (Onisarashi-hen, Utsutsukowashi-hen, Kokoroiyashi-hen).
That comic book has 6-7 oneshots (I have the raws), most of them were scanlated by GGAL.

I have a question about Hanyuu.
Spoiler:

I haven't watched or played rei yet, so don't spoil too much outside Hanyuu. But seriously. I am not understanding the character. Or does she have plot holes?

Also, hypothetically speaking, say I write a story based on Higurashi that takes place in the far future, when Keiichi and the rest are old. Do I need to know anything about Umineko to understand Higurashi's future lore? If so, what ties does Higurashi have with Umineko? Or any important events in the lore that happened in its past?

Furthermore, is there any other lore or actual supernatural occurrences in Higurashi such as Oni for example, that occur in the lore but aren't explained in the Kai VNs? Just as I thought I had the plot figured out, I red some posts about Kizuna and now I'm confused just what the HELL went on in Hinamizawa when it was still Onigafuchi. Were there supernatural happenings or not? Are the explanations in the main VN just to mislead the player?


Also, what does it mean that Berkanstel is
