Higurashi n Naku Koro ni Kai Specials is a love letter to Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai.
It takes little snips from those animes and changes the context into blooper scenes. It's basically Higurashi's outtakes and silly ideas on full display.

They're hardly memorable and some jokes didn't really land ...
