Guess I was looking if anyone was talking about the new Higurashi thing shown in the last 07th artbook. Since none seems to be mentioning anything about it, guess I'll say what I can.

New serie ??? : Higurashi no naku koro ni hou.
New character : Tamurahimenomikoto - seems to be hanyuu but has feathers instead of horns.
More new characters : An astronaut guy and an astronaut girl, and also a little robotic girl.

Seems to be about alternate dimensions in a well more "alternate" way then higurashi has shown us so far. If I hadn't actually seen it I'd pretty much doubt the whole thing... A new serie would be one thing but it really appears to be - more higurashi, just with astronauts and robot girls.

You know - what I'd like to know the most is something about the release date. They were talking about this summer, but I found nothing about any piece of news.

The sci-fi stuff is actually for the Winter work featuring three worlds, one of which is sci-fi. Ryuukishi said that for this year he was producing two one-off works, the first of which is Higurashi Hou for this summer.

As a small update, in his interview for the upcoming Game Market, Ryuukishi announced the scenario writing for Higurashi Hou is already finishing. I suspect we'll have more news soon, but if not the release info is always released early July just before pre-orders go live.

There's no additional information yet, but the official site for Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Hou is now up. There's a space for the movie and three sections are coming soon: What is "Higurashi"?, Character Introductions, and Specifications.

I just came across an interesting article, it doesn't seem that it was mentioned before.

It seems that Doctor Hifumi actually exists, except he's Czech and his name is Jaroslav Flegr.

The mystery is over. The Higurashi Hou about page is up and Hou contains the following:

*Unpublished Hinamizawa Bus Stop script (original work before the creation of the VNs)
*Higurashi Outbreak
*The brand new Higurashi Outbreak ~神姦し編~ (Kamikanshi-hen/God Wickedness Chapter?)

I don't know if that's a proper translation of the chapter's name, so feel free to correct me.

Edit: Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but Hou also seems to collect all previous Higurashi games.

Including the ones published for Nintendo DS? That would be nice

Seriously? Kizuna and Matsuri included? That would be great. Where did you learn about this information?

Regarding the previous games point, this is a 07th Expansion product and so by previous Higurashi games they're referring to "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni", "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai", and "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei". However, I would wait for someone else to confirm this before getting too excited. The only thing I'm 100% confident in reporting is the inclusion of Hinamizawa Bus Stop, Higurashi Outbreak, and the new Outbreak chapter.

Ryukishi specifically refer to his games, so by no means alchemist chapters at all.
It is basically a master collection of every doujin games of the higurashi franchise, including the other 3 scripts mentioned.

Even though the character introductions will probably be coming soon, here's a translation of Tamura Himenomikoto's bio from all the way back in December. It seemed quite interesting before, but now that we know it's 神姦し編 I guess it makes sense to have a character like this.

Tamura Himenomikoto
Likes: Rice offerings, thousand years of peace
Dislikes: Different kinds of clans, nations because of the disturbance of wisdom

The same as Hanyuu, a leader of THINGS that are not human.
On "this earth", an ancient residence in comparison to Hanyuu's people, she once had the experience of competing with Hanyuu...
A cold relationship with Hanyuu, for not less than a hundred years they did not communicate.
Like Hanyuu the girl's circumstances were poor. Mutually, I think they will never want to meet again.
The trouble of the gods... to bring a disaster not of this world, to the world of man...
...This story, once again moves towards tragedy.

Spoiler for Original Japanese:

Ah. So that's what was meant by the previous games point.

That aside, there's a new video concerning Higurashi Hou on the official site for it if anyone's interested: http://07th-expansion.net/higu_hou/Main.htm

Apparently, it will be announced August 17, 2014.

Sounds interesting. And it will be interesting to see how Hanyuu and Tamura interact with each other if/when they meet again (which I'm sure they will) since both are supposed to be supernatural entities of sorts, apparently know each other since long before the events that transpired in June 1983, and appear to be sworn enemies or something. They may clash. They may knock heads. Maybe something will occur that forces them to put their differences aside, and it will end up turning into some kind of love-hate relationship where both harbor some kind of inner mutual respect for each other. This could be the match of the century.

Now confirmed to be out in Summer Comiket.

I have mixed feelings about this - mainly due to how Umineko tanked and killed off all of the other manga/console game/anime/cds/tie-ins unless it's back at the doujin level. So I don't find it surprising that he's going back to what worked.

However, it's also exactly that reason that makes me worried.

The song for the OP is exactly what I imagined it would be. Very excited about that and the glimpse we caught of another new character.

Higurashi definitely attracted a lot of people that were more interested in the story of the anime than the style of the novels. I remember, after Umineko, Ryuukishi said that his works were never meant to appeal to such a large audience so I don't imagine he'll attempt to do anything of the sort with Hou. It seems very much to be for those who loved his original works and those who never got a chance to purchase a copy.

The formal announcement is now starting to make its way onto various sites. You can check out some screenshots and the cover art here: http://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/ci...329/index.html

The price is 2500 yen before tax and pre-orders begin July 4. It contains two discs, unsurprisingly, considering how much content there is.

No new anime episodes have been announced. The new chapter probably doesn't take place after Saikoroshi-hen, but it probably has the same feeling as "after the main series" as Hanyuu seems to be playing a big role and it's likely we'll learn a lot more about her.
