I see. I was just a little surprised at your choice of words though. But yes, it's totally fine to dislike it. They haven't all been translated yet, but there's quite a few stories in Kataribanashi-hen that are actually rather depressing/have a bad end.

All the other arcs were good, I just have problem with this chapter lol. It was just too cruel and the end didnt even make sense Lol. Btw Amazon does not have Watanagashi manga, is there a reason for this? I have been waiting for it for a year , but still no luck. (Ofc I'm talking about US amazon). (I can't buy stuff from any other sites other than amazon, so it is the only chance I have to get manga )

I'm not sure why Amazon doesn't have it anymore. It used to though. If you're looking for it, maybe you could try another store like B&N?

I have a volume of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Onikakushi-hen, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Tatarigoroshi-hen, and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai Meakashi-hen.

Though i'm still tracking down the other volumes, i just hope they won't be too hard to fine

Are you trying to find the original Japanese volumes, or the English ones? Barnes and Noble still has all of them for sale, as far as I know.

Yesasia has almost all of the volumes. It's missing a few from the matsuribayashi arc though.

edit - Btw, is the Higurashi manga still ongoing, or has it finished now?

The Saikoroshi-hen manga ended awhile back. Also, the Hinamizawa Bus Stop manga recently ended. It will be compiled in a tankoubon in December. It looks like all 07-written Higurashi works have all been adapted into manga form... so, I'd say it's about finished now.

It would be really nice if Bus Stop and Saikoroshi-hen would also be completely translated and published as books by Yen Press, like they did with the main arcs, Yoigoshi-hen and Onisarashi-hen. Has something like this already been announced?

By the way, Yen Press announced from now on every volume will be an "omnibus volume" containing two volumes. Does this mean if the following two chapters would have been published like the ones before, Minagoroshi-hen would contain six volumes and Matsuribayashi-hen eight volumes? I can't really figure out what Minagoroshi-hen will look like because I'm afraid this would mean there will be about three volumes all about dealing with the child consultation centre ...

I'm a little afraid of Matsuribayashi-hen also. Karin Suzuragi is a great artist but I'm not at all happy with her design of Takano Miyo. I would be glad if it had been done by Yutori Houjyou whose character design is absolutely beautiful in my opinion.

Do you mean each volume is going to contain two manga volumes? So for instance, both Onikakushi-hen volumes will be combined into one volume?

I think they just mean the releases of Minagoroshi-hen and Matsuribayashi-hen.

Saikoroshi-hen and Bus Stop have not been announced for English releases. I think if we're to get news on that, we'll know by the time Matsuribayashi-hen is out on shelves.

There are also no more Kataribanashi-hen volumes being released.

Oh wait, you're talking about the English releases? I thought you were talking about the Japanese language volumes being re-released.

Sorry about the confusion, my question was about the English releases.

Most people would call 10 years a good run. Besides, it's not as though we'll stop talking about the series. Who knows, if one of us amasses enough money, we might be able to live the dream and buy the series outright. Higurashi can always use more advertising.

hi everybody!
I'm new here and I'm also very sorry because i'm gonna ask you something you'll probably already heard 1000 times.
I've searched everywhere on google and scrolled many pages of this thread too, but I can't find anywhere a clear answer about the manga only cycles of higurashi.
I'd really like to know something more about Miotsukushi-hen,Kokoroiyashi-hen and Matsuribayashi-hen: do english editions of these even exist? If yes, do you know links to read them online or download them, or the only way is to buy them? I've read Matsuribayashi-hen online, but it is still not fully translated (up to chapter 15); is it a dropped project? because the original japanese manga has been released pretty much time ago, isn't it?
I would be very gratefulf if anybody cleared my doubts,
thanks again for your patience

Nope. Miotsukushi-hen was a PS2 original arc, so it's never even been in print. Kokoroiyashi-hen is a manga epilogue, so it MAY one day be translated.

As for Matsuribayashi-hen, the project has been dropped, but let me explain. In Japan, both Minagoroshi-hen and Matsuribayashi-hen were being released at the same time. Minagoroshi-hen was barely finished being translated into English (all 25 chapters) by the time Matsuribayashi-hen has reached Volume 7 of 8 (it's a LOOONG arc - I think 32 chapters?!) In the last few months, U.S. manga company Yen Press announced that they would license and release English versions of both arcs (also simultaneously), but they would do so in omnibus packages. As such, no translation group was going to finish before the Yen Press release, so the project was dropped. So the end is coming, but not only will it be a while, it's going to cost a ton. Each arc alone is thicker than some college textbooks.

I was hoping more groups would take on the mangas that will not be translated to english. They were quite stubborn trying to race with yen press previously when I beg them to refocus, but since then all but the group dedicated to bus stop has never been heard from since >_>

I know I have not translated anything since I did the second higurashi movie, I am just working on my japanese atm but such a procrasinator :P
I do put up raws once a month....

If you know of a doshjin or comic with Natsumi, I will purchase it right away ^_^

Spoiler for natsumi it not yuri >_>:
