I guess YenPress has officially finished Higurashi when this comes out this month. Its basically episode 2-4 of the Rei OVA. Im not sure if they'll release any more arcs.

Well someone could write them to ask and give suggestions on other arcs to print...
Then we can get an official answer.

THey've covered a big chunk of the Higurashi arcs that I've lost track which they haven't done yet.

I think what they have done so far is enough. Higurashi has way too many side-stories.

I guess the more important ones are the main 8. How big are the omnibus ones anyway? Are they really so heavy like a brick?

They've "just" done the arcs that counts in the official serie (Beyond Midnight included) and Onisarashi. They could cover Hinamizawa Bus, The Kizuna manga (an arc with Tomoe and Natsumi) and obviously Kataribanashi hen.

The Mahjong arcs, Daybreak arcs, Hirukowashi and maybe Utsutsukowashi (tough it was cancelled) would be pretty cool too. There are still many stories of Higurashi that weren't translated on Internet, I would happily take anything.

Yeah it would be nice of them if they could publish Hinamizawa Bus Stop and Kataribanashi-hen. I vaguely recall that Yen Press interview talking to Ryukishi and his origins about Higurashi so perhaps... Hinamizawa Bus Stop will have higher chances?

YenPress has been doing a lot of novel translations lately maybe if we're lucky we can get the novels translated too? If I remember right all novels are short stories so maybe they can all be in one book. Im familiar with the length of the novel that comes with the special edition of Higurashi Matsuri and I kinda assume all of them are the same in length.

Well, Xpearse just finished his tl of the VN of Bus Stop, so would rather choose to have a story that hasn't been translated yet.

Well, there are only two, The swimming pool one and another that should be a part of Hanyu's arc, but those are from the limited editions of the Matsuri/Kizuna games (or the guide book), not really sure that Yen press could get those. The light novels of the Original serie are a different story tough. And I really like the illustrations in it, so wouldn't mind them.

But again, would rather take Kataribanashi in first, the stories are pretty great.

I want to know the context behind these.

I think the first is from the Kataribanashi manga. I'm pretty sure the second is just a fan-made thing, but I'm not sure.

First one is book four of Kataribanashi, that I knew off top of my head. When I have time I will look through my collection to see if can find the other.

Does anyone know anywhere that's still selling new copies of the Higurashi manga? I'm trying to complete my collection, as it looks like they've been discontinued. I just tried buying copies from CDJapan but they just cancelled my order, saying they were unable to get hold of any copies.

I actually managed to get the majority of the ones I'm missing from Mangaoh since I posted. I'm still missing volume 1-2 of Tsumihoroboshi-hen, volume 5-6 of Minagoroshi-hen, and volume 4 of Matsuribayashi-hen. I'll check your link out tomorrow.

Just checked out your link. It looks like the only copies available from there are second hand copies. Do you know anywhere else I might be able to get them new? Tried honto.jp, but they only have e-books available.

Only copies they seem to have are used or kindle versions. I'll keep an eye on the other sites, in case they become available again.

Well the copies I got from suruga seem okay to me. I have not received a copy that was less then near mint from them they even have the little leaflets on them, majority of my higurashi collection came from them so I highly recommend them. You could look over my collection for quality, though I did use a phone to take pics. English versions though are from conventions and book stores, ones I took picture of are ones I lend out so they are used alot, I have two other full copies of English versions kicking around as well. I have five copies of cotton drifting arc lolz


Also got a few books from my friend who sends me stuff I want from jaunce.com, they been have been mint to very good quality.

Higurashi books seem to be in better quality then other series, stuff like used sailor moon can be horrendous.
