Anyways, got a lot of questions to ask; most are pretty in depth though, so there may not be explicit answers for every single one. Answer if you'd like, please~
Spoiler for very spoileriffic questions:

Kudos to anyone who wants to answer any of these questions, since most of them make you think. Thanks to anyone who can answer.

Really I wouldn't read my answers. Go watch Higurashi no naku koro ni rei which is an OVA. It has a lot of the answers you're looking for except the first question.

I don't think that can directly be answered (possibly in Kizuna during her arc, but I haven't read that yet). My guess it that she mentally is / wants to be a child and chose to take the form. She did say a couple times in the VN that she has always wanted to join the club members' childish fun.

About Rika's (physical) age...

So I was looking back in my Higurashi Kai summary book at the character line drawing section. I know it has always been said that none of the characters are given an official age and that we can only estimate, but I noticed Rika has a different line drawing for herself in 1981 (when her parents die.) Her dress and hair is a little shorter than her design for present time.

The line drawing is labeled:
梨花9歳
Rika, 9 years old.

I wonder if it would be safe to accept that as an actual official age...? I've also been seeing "August 25th" around as Rika's official birthdate (Japanese wikipedia, fans on Pixiv), but I don't know the source of that.

That would put her at 11 during the events of 1983, going on 12.

That's what I thought too, assuming August 25th is her official birthdate.

Also, going back to this question:

Someone else who has played through and fully understood the arc may have to clarify my information.

EDIT:

Ugh. Replying to more old questions...

Because apparently...

Spoiler for Is this really canon:


Can someone confirm that this is actually true, and there are no other comics in Kataribanashi-hen that portray any other pairing actually having a relationship? Because this just makes me wonder what exactly happened to Mion (and possibly Rena) then.
Spoiler for what the heck:

Also, can somebody identify which OST this instrumental was based off of?
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/30520334/Track3.mp3

Same goes with this one. Sounds very familiar, but I can't pinpoint the exact OST it was based off of.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/30520334/Track4.mp3

*I'll remove if links are not allowed

The composer titled it "Giwaku", but the original Giwaku from the Higurashi OSTs sounds nothing like this. Unless it has a meaning to it? But the first half of the track does sound very familiar.

I noticed there was no answer to your question, so I thought I'd try to answer it to clarify some things. (That person is really deeply into KeiichiRika...)

Where did you find those tracks, by the way? I don't recognize any of them. They sound a bit un-Higurashi-like. (Or maybe they are just fan songs...)

I actually saw your request (er, more like a comment) for the "dai on classics" album by Ruined Well and went to go look for it. Unfortunately, I was only able to find many people selling the album CD. However, I did come across different albums by a different composer(s?) in the process For some reason or another, though, the original composers are unknown, and the album got mixed with another I think? Also found another album by violinist TAM of TAMUSIC.

Edit: Never mind, just found out that they were arrangements of various visual novel BGMs ^^; finished uploading all of them as well, both albums can now be heard here.

If you watch season two, I'm sure you'll change your mind after. Out of all the three seasons, it's probably the best one.

Oh..! Well, I do remember in Kakara Asobi that after Miotsukishi-hen, before the credit rolls in Matsuri, I heard Satoshi's voice said "tadaima." Unless.......

Anyone, in NDS Miotsukishi, do you know any more details in Tomoe's side? Is she alright (I heard she died in that arc (WUT?!))? And what about Nagisa (didn't she died in Tokihogushi-hen, that' what i heard of)? And what about this Shirou Hanada character? Is he another antagonist in Miotsukishi-hen, like Takano? Is Shirou working for Takano and Tokyo? Also, did Natsumi's parent survive in that arc?

Sorry, I was just trying to work on a crossover fanfic based on Higurashi Kizuna, that I wanna know more details about the game (yet, there's not enough info...)...

Oh. I guess I'm wrong then. Miotsukushi-hen appears to be the only non-voiced arc in Kizuna 4, so I can't quite tell who's talking. orz I'm sorry!

I think the best I can tell you is what characters showed up in NDS Miotsukushi-hen that makes it different from the PS2 videos I've seen. Shirou Hanada also shows up in the NDS version. (He gives me the impression that he's a villain in Tomoe's story...)

I don't really know if Tomoe died in this ending? It looks like she was only badly injured judging from the CGs. She shows up during the ending credits eating at a restaurant with Natsumi.

I KNEW IT! I KNEW TOMOE DIDN'T DIE IN THAT ARC!!

Thank you!

Wait, Miotsukishi-hen's unvoiced in the NDS?! Aww.... (well, that explains why Shirou doesn't have a seiyuu).

And I'm wondering how Nagisa appeared in Miotsukishi-hen (since I thought she died in Tokihogushi-hen, unless she's mentioned or something (like her ghost appeared or something))?

Also, this question is about Kotohogushi-hen. Well, I know who Riku is (Rika's ancestor, Hanyuu's husband), but what happen to him? Did he died in the Fire?

Oh darn it, now I wish I had finished Kizuna 4 last year... I wonder what happened to Riku as well.

I think they left Miotsukushi-hen unvoiced to give Matsuribayashi-hen, Saikoroshi-hen, and Kotohogushi-hen voices. (Maybe not enough memory on the game to have all arcs voiced...?)

It seems like Nagisa appeared like a ghost or a memory. At one point during the story, her sprite shows up transparent.

Spoiler for Kotohogushi-hen obersvations:

Aww... that last part of the Kotohogushi-hen observation... so touching...so sweet...

Spoiler for now I had a feeling...:


Wait? There's 2 fire incidents in Onigafuchi?! One I thought was when Ouka perform the Watanagashi?! How did the other fire incident happen?
