I haven't tried it before, but I researched a little... and they're not like average Banpresto merchandise. These ones are rarer. Since it's a lottery (only held at Japanese stores and toy stores), you have to buy a 600 yen ticket each time to try to win a prize.

They might eventually be on sale on websites, but I think they'd be really expensive too.

I've still have to read the whole thing, but I actually can't see many people wanting older Rika... even if I would love that. I think I'll request Oyashiro Rika though... or just write Furude Rika.

Will I get shot down for linking to my Ebay auction of a Higurashi DS game? Having trouble finding a buyer in UK as it's completely in Japanese, so hoping for international one ^^"

You can post a picture of the game, say that you're offering to sell a completely Japanese version off the game, and then tell people to private message you if they are interested.

Animesuki does tend to look down on out-and-out advertisement.

Oooh, if I knew Kanji and had money, I would buy it from you in a flash.
But sadly, I lack both money and knowledge in foreign language. T^T

XD I bought it and then MangaGamer released a European-compatible CD hard copy of both arcs >.< I was planning to slowly translate it.Quite hard considering they don't teach words like "dismembered" or "mutilated" in Japanese class XD Lol!

You really should try and translate it for us fans who don't know much Japanese.

Anyone else bothered by the Siren Visual box art having having the full "Naku" of the title red, rather than just the "Na"?


^the pics btw

Why does the first season have a scene from Kai and kai have a scene from the first season?

Or are both Kai?

Nah I'm not that bothered. If anything, I'm glad it's finally getting a DVD release. Because I can finally buy them. ^-^

I believe they're both Kai.

Eh, I just don't really like the box design overall... but at least it's getting a DVD release.

I prefer Siren Visual's first season box art. Looks a lot better.

Both scenes are technically from Season 2. The artwork recounts Oiishi's account of the School incident in the first episode of Kai, titled "Reunion." Of course, the weird irony is that I believe the artwork itself is in fact from season 1. Still, it's great to see Rika on the cover like that. Hopefully they release the other covers as well, in the classic reverse-sleeve design.


EDIT: My mistake, BOTH pieces are taken directly from Season 2 artwork:

I never understood why that decided to call it When They Cry: Higurashi. The proper translation is "When the Cicada's Cry". Its like they tried to both translate the title and not translate it at the same time!

I have a feeling it's because "Higurashi" had already become such a recognizable title that to completely translate the title as "When the Cicadas Cry," would lose most of the brand recognition. Case in point, google "When the Cicadas Cry" and you'll pull up a bunch of stuff, some of which points to Higurashi. Google "Higurashi" and you'll pull up everything from the franchise for several pages.

Besides, dubbers and subbers alike just refer to the story as Higurashi. It's just easier that way.
