I guess so because their mysterious style matches the Frederica Bernkastel poems very well. It's also her voice (like a grown-up Rika).

They are not the Game poems but it's something similar.I always loved those previews when I first watched Higurashi and Music on it as well. It was such a cool expirience

I have two more questions about Himatsubushi-hen.

Spoiler for Himatsubushi - Akasaka - Rika's prediction:

sounds like a weird translation, as in the original text implies that the moon is death.

She cut the phone cords to stop akasaka on finding about his wife death. Unable to leave Hinamizawa till daytime he would likely gone crazy realizing it was his fault she went to the rooftop. By buying time, lets Ooishi finds out the news and be there for him. Knowing he still has a daughter to keep care of keeps him rooted in sanity.


The analogy about the ripple a reflected moon, is to mean that warning Akasaka about his wife may change things in the future. good karma. Eventually a world comes along where he does go back to tokyo.

Thanks to both of you. I think the translation in the subtitles of the US DVD edition is right then, because it also says the moon is death.

Rika also says in the sound novel that

Thank you very much for your answers.

I don't seem to run out of questions.

How long was Shion confined in St. Lucia? There's some contradiction in the information in the sound novel, I think. First she says she went to that school soon after the dam project was frozen, later she says she had been away only one year.

I haven't read the VN, but I that statement "been away"... could that be referring to her being "away" from school? Considering she had only met Satoshi not long before he disappeared, it has been roughly a year between her being away from school, and the events of June 1986.

Thanks. Sorry for being unclear earlier, but I have been referring to the year of Shouwa 57 (1982), when she just got out of her school. It's then she talks about having been away one year from Okinomiya, not from school.

It's also a bit difficult to tell which year she means when talking about "the dam project being frozen" because in the year of Shouwa 53 (the year Akasaka and Rika met for the first time) it was disrupted because of the kidnapping, one year later (the year the manager was killed) it was officially cancelled.

I think RandomAvatarFan is right. It's just a graphic way to express that someone is dangerous or mad, or the character from whose point of view the story is told thinks the person is scary or crazy. I don't think there is a strict rule about it as you might be thinking.

Well that's possible but at that time he was just starting to get affected (it was at the beginning of the arc). So I don't think it is much probable.

It could have been nothing more than a simple 'Your eyes were scary' , The face keiichi was making at that time probably was pretty scary for them
