Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (ひぐらしのく頃に, When the Cicadas Cry), is a Japanese murder mystery doujin soft sound novel series produced by 07th Expansion. The series is focused on a group of young friends and the strange events that occur in the rural village Hinamizawa where they reside.
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni takes place during June 1983, at a fictional rural village called Hinamizawa, which has a population of approximately 2,000. The main character, Keiichi Maebara, moves to Hinamizawa that appears to be a normal, peaceful, rural village. However, the tranquility abruptly ends after the annual Watanagashi Festival, a celebration to commemorate and give thanks to the local god, Oyashiro-sama. Keiichi learns that every year for the past four years, one person has been murdered and another has gone missing on the day of the Watanagashi Festival. Keiichi himself soon becomes drawn into the strange events surrounding the Watanagashi Festival and Oyashiro-sama.

The OP for WTC5 will be released next month, on the 29th. WTC5 and an additional arc of Umineko were set to be released during this December's Comiket, but were delayed to next year (which means August).
