Holy crap, are you serious? I wanna see an older Keiichi; I saw all the other grown up versions of the kids except him.

Ths is a different version of teenaged Rika and Satoko (with Hanyuu).

As you can see they are still at the same school in Hinamizawa. Rika got Rena's uniform while Satoko got Shion's uniform. Hanyuu is still in her normal school attire, though slightly more filled out. Best guess is that this would be 1987 (though it would be more fun if this was October of 1986)

You mean in her 20s right? If not, Oishi must be one of those extremely healthy old people that live past their 100s and Rena must have retained her youth to make her look 20 years younger. And she looks roughly looks like this:


I think in one of those short animated dvd gags, she works for an insurance company and attempts to sell insurance to Oishi.
Still have yet to see an older Keiichi.

Well, the bulk of Higurashi is set in 1983 and that one episode was set in 2007. Rena is probably 15 or 16 in 1983. Add 24 years to that makes her about 40 years old.

And rather hot.

A piece of official art has her age on it and says she's 37.

Does that mean that we have an actual age for everyone now?

If in 2007 Rena is 37... then she should be about 13 in 1983. Hmmm... I always thought she was about 15 or so...

Keiichi is the same age as Rena... Mion is one year older, which also means that Shion is a year older too.

During Higurashi however, Keiichi is the same age as Mion and Shion since his birthday for the year already passed. Making them all 14 at the time if that piece of info about Rena is correct. O.o
Odd... I always thought they were all older too...

Technically, given the references given about all the main characters, this still makes sense, as the "older" main cast was always considered to be within the 14-16 age range. The reference ages of Rika and Satoko better cemented Keiichi, Rena, Mion and Shion at the younger end.


Still, it feels weird to think of how you viewed the world when you were 13-15, so it may not be as strange (in a cosmic sense) as first believed.

I always thought they were 16 or 17 but then at the same time I thought Rika and Satako were like, 10. Ehh... assigning ages is too wierd x__x
Damn. I wish I'll look like that when I'm 40...

It's been posted before, but this is Rena and Older Rena.

The Tsumihoboroshi-hen epilogue in the VN takes place in 2005, so that would adjust her age to be around 15.
