Follow the order that the events occured in the 4 years, and remember the contents from each piece (because the requirements are contents from other pieces), you should be able to "solve" it if you're familiar with the story enough.

The only piece that had me guessing a while was 女王への協力依頼, which became available without me knowing.

If you're really stuck, break the pieces (pick them before they're available). That way, you'll get a visual cue (a blue box) around the broken piece when it becomes available.

I have a question about Minagoroshi and Matsuribayashi, are they the 'answer arcs' to Tatarigoroshi and Himatsubushi? Or are they just completely seperate?

Minagoroshi is "the answer" to 90~99% of mystery. More or less, Minagoroshi is the answer to Tatarigoroshi tho.

I'm still painfully waiting for my Matsuribayashi but from what I gather it's more the epilogue to the series filling in the rest.

I just scanned this lightly but my question is:

is the manga-ka or authors of this game going to do another puzzle/mystery
series? The quality of the writing, the compelling nature of the characters make
me wish there were more.

Like I mentioned in the Q&A thread, although the answer chapters do answer some of the mysteries in the question chapters, that's not their main purpose. For example, Meakashi-hen may have the same development as Watanagashi-hen (but seen from a different view), but it doesn't mean they are the same. By Tsumihoroboshi-hen, the scenario won't look like any of the previous chapters anymore, but at the same time, you should begin notice the hidden "rules" that govern over the fate of our main characters. Minagoroshi-hen pretty much completely cleared up everything for us, and showed us what was needed to "beat" the tragedy. Matsuribayashi-hen is where all the puzzle pieces from the previous chapters are finally connected together, and showed us what it's like to win against fate.

It's still the longest chapter of them all, so I'd call it the "grand finale" or something. ^^;

Personally, it feels more like Minagoroshi-hen part 2. After all, it's pretty much a direct continuation of Minagoroshi.

You mean like a summary?

Maybe someone will do it. Not me though. ^^;

Since he does both the art and the writing, maybe the title "original creator" fits him best. ^^;

Ryukishi07-san will certainly write more stories in the future (it may not be the same genre as Higurashi though), but for now, he's just trying to take it easy. After all, he has devoted 4 1/2 years of his life writing and producing this series, now that it's finally over, he'll probably need some time to rest before beginning another project.

As for spoilers, I'm thinking of translating Minagoroshi (instead of people getting spoiled brutally and massively). My time is limited though, so I can't promise anything, but I'd like to do it nonetheless.

If someone does translate it, I'll have to avoid the translation/summary like the plague. o__o; *currently very unpatient to play the sound novel's*

Finally done with Matsuribayashi, and my opinion is pretty much the same as Sushi. I feel extremely satisfied by what I read.
My hat off to Ryukishi-dono.
If the last 2 chapters (at least) can be translated, then I sure hope something comes to fruition. I feel bad for the anime viewers.

An advice to the viewers : DON'T GET SPOILED.
It's not worth it, compared to the awesomeness Minagoroshi & Matsuribayashi are.

Now that people have finished Matsuribayashi, I'd like to know, who is Frederica Bernkastel and what does the red Na in the title mean?

I don't know about the red na, but Frederica Bernkastel is:

Huh, never thought about that.
Good guess.

That's kinda like where Rena's name comes from:
Ryu guu Rei na
Ryu kishi 0 7 (Rei = zero, Na = seven)

Ryuuguu (竜宮) = Dragon's Palace
Ryuukishi (竜騎士) = Dragon Knight

Interesting.

Sushi-Y that spoiler tag is too tempting... must resists, must resists... a few more days and I will know... must resists... why are US Customs so cruel? T_T

Oh, so that's the solution to Rena's name. I didn't even notice about that >.<
(And it kinda follows the same logic I used for . Buu ;_; )

It still doesn't answer all of the questions but it gives a very
plausible answer for the anime watchers who haven't played
the game why there was such disparity in character behavior
from arc-to-arc.

Kudos to the manga-ka - a smart cookie I do believe.

Like I said in the very beginning when the anime started. All characters are the same throughout all scenarios. Any differences you see in a character's personality/behaviors is not because he/she is a "different person". For example, Rena in Onikakushi-hen is exactly the same as the Rena in Watanagashi-hen.

The difference, then, is caused by an outside factor instead. It may be environmental, or situational.

The most important thing to remember about Higurashi is this:

The different plot development in each scenario is responsible for the differences in the characters, not the other way around. All characters "start off" the same across all scenarios.

So what caused the differences in plot development (if a world is "reset", shouldn't it just repeat itself again?)? that's something the anime probably won't address directly, but if they can handle Tsumihoroboshi-hen right, you should be able to understand why.

And Higurashi is a sound novel, so I would call Ryukishi07-san the "author" instead of "mangaka".
