Different viewpoints, different art style. I rather like onikakushi's style but the others grew on me.

I was wondering if it's more advisable to read starting from the Onikakushi-hen followed by the Watanagashi-hen then to the Tatarigoroshi-hen? Or could we just read it from any sequence?

Since each scenario is technically "stand-alone", you don't really have to read them in any specific order, different mangakas are responsible for each of the scenario as well, so it's not as if they would skip on anything for their own scenario.

However, that only applys to the first three chapters (Onikakushi, Watanagashi, and Tatarigoroshi).
Himatsubushi (4th chapter) should only be read after the completion of the above three chapters.
解 (answer) chapters should obviously only be read after completion of the above four chapters, AND they have to be read in order (Meakashi → Tsumihoroboshi → Minagoroshi (if there is going to be one), etc.)

Thanks for the help. Had been wondering if the manga was supposed to be read in the same order as to the anime ver.

If I understand correctly, the mangas aren't out yet, and are coming out (Summer 06) ?
Wikipedia says the answer chapters aren't coming out until then, but the regular ones ARE out now?

You should give the Higurashi wiki a good read.

Anyway, the serialization for the primary 3 question chapters (Onikakushi-hen, Watanagashi-hen, and Tatarigoroshi-hen, their covers can be seen above) have all pretty much finished up. So far, 1 tankoubon (volume) has already been released for all three scenarios (containing the serialized chapters covering the first half of the scenario). The final tankoubons (volume 2) of the 3 question chapters, containing the latter half of the scenario, are scheduled to be released in the Summer, completing the manga adaptation of Onikakushi-hen, Watanagashi-hen, and Tatarigoroshi-hen.

After that, serialization for 2 of the answer chapters has already been confirmed (Meakashi and Tsumihoroboshi) and their serialization is due to begin late June, drawn by the same mankagas who did the corresponding question chapters (Onikakushi→Tsumihoroboshi, Watanagashi→Meakashi).

Eeeee I have been searching everywhere for a scanlation group for this!! *Glomps YamiKage for the link* Must...Download... and Read... Now.... o.o
The art style looks like it is going to be different for each chapter. I like Watangashi-hen the best so far, but the others are cool too.

I managed to get the Onisarashi-hen just because the artwork is soo beautiful. The people here actually look their age instead of using the moe style. Natsumi is just so cool.

However, this volume is so messed up! I was so creeped out. But I'm surprised that there was no relation to Rena and her gang at all. And is that Maebara Keiichi? Another bad thing is that this book does not have furigana so I could not read most of it.

Does anybody know where I can buy the volumes that are out right now? Sasuga only has volume one of Watanagashi-Hen.

Also, Furigana = I can read it so could you also tell me which ones contain it? Actually, just tell me if Tatarigoroshi contains Furigana because I've already seen raw scans of the other two.

EDIT: Just to clarify, I meant an english website where I can buy the raw volumes.

That's the only one I don't have. It might have furigana since the covers are designed similarly which means they might be released by the same company. Whereas Onisarashi's is different. <----plausible explanation

Volume 2 of Onikakushi-hen, Watanagashi-hen, and Tatarigoroshi-hen will go on sale 6/22. My copy has been reserved for pre-order.

Yoigoshi-hen, which seems to be a new side story about Hinamizawa in the present day will start its serialization from August.

What are the ISBN's for all the books released so far (all 7)? I want to order them through a store that imports things for me. Are there any other ISBNs for ones that haven't been released yet? And I know this isn't the right place to ask, but what's the ISBN for the fanbook? Thanks in advance.
