So I've watched it and the sequel (Kai), and I'm not really smart when it comes to puzzling things and I'm completely lost .. like I hit a brick wall and smashed my brain.



And if anyone could just summarize what happened in Higurashi and Higurashi Kai, because I watched the anime a long time ago, but it stills bugs me not knowing, so if someone could summarize it, so I could pick up from the latest season, Thanks :D

Ohai August user. Welcome to MAL~

First - That's some MASSIVE spoilers. Might wanna spoiler tag those before others rip your dick off.
Second - Kai is the end of the Higurashi's plot. All other seasons are just alternative with no relation to the main plot. So just watch it.

As to answer your question, refer to the post above since I'm too lazy.

ummm I thought you said you finished kai..... As for all your questions apart from 'How does Keiichi remember what happened in another "dimension" ' which is assumed because the fact the same time period has repeated over a hundred times are all clearly answered, are you sure you even watched kai?

I hit my head in 30 different spots, I apologize if I sound stupid, the complication just got to me and I was brainless for until the end :S

the way the series goes is that episodes 1-20 something were all a dream that whatever his face had they never even happened

Rika being the shrine miko has nothing to do with the virus.

Not true.
The serious arc from Rei is actually canon and is after the events of Kai.
The other eps and Higurashi Kira is just random(bad) fanservice.Well The first ep or Rei was funny.


As for Frederika(Furude Rika) Bernkastel(the wine Rika drinks).She is from the anime Umineko no Naku Koro Ni.She is supposed to be a witch created by the dead Rikas of the worst worlds she experienced. [spoler]She is one of the antagonists

Hey late response but...

1) Rika took one of Satoko’s syringes that the clinic gives her in order to surpress Hinamizawa syndrome and went after Shion with it in an attempt to calm her virus. Rika realized Shion had the virus after Shion pushes her around at school.

2) The village never perished because Rika died. Takano and the Yamainu had the villagers gassed in the other arcs after they killed Rika. This is what was “The Great Hinamizawa Disaster.”

3) The uncle never came back to life. In this arc where Satoko went to live with her uncle, she no longer had the injections supplied by the clinic to surpress her Himamizawa syndrome because she wasnt living with Rika anymore but with her uncle. Therefore the virus she had when Satoshi disappeared was acting up again (since she wasnt taking her injections) and she was hallucinating that her uncle was still there, even though Keiichi killed him. This in turn makes Keiichi (and the viewers) also confused that the uncle may still be alive.

4) Nomura is from the organization that sent Takano and Irie to Hinamizawa to further investigate Hinamizawa syndrome.

Any other questions feel free to dm me. I love this show :D
