Synopsis

Detective Mamoru Akasaka is used to catching criminals and solving fast-paced cases in Tokyo, but he has never imagined that his job would send him to the quiet village of Hinamizawa. Disguised as a tourist, Akasaka decides to take in the sights, all while gathering information for his true mission: to find a kidnapped child.

The dam construction project in Hinamizawa threatens to decimate the village, and a group of villagers has kidnapped the grandson of the Minister of Construction, holding him ransom in exchange for the project's cancellation. Akasaka must find the boy before things get too out of hand, all while trying to keep his cover. Taking place a few years before the main storyline of Higurashi, Himatsubushi-hen follows Akasaka as he navigates a village where enemies abound. However, he finds a friend in a young girl named Rika Furude, who knows far more than she should about their present situation, and about what might happen next...

Story - This was one of my favourite arcs in the anime 'Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni' and it was even better in the manga! It gives much more depth to the characters of Ooishi, Rika and Mion and introduces Akasaka.

Art - As always, the Higurashi art is beautiful and in parts creepy (especially some of the scenes with Rika earlier in the volume) and I felt that in parts the art bettered what was shown in the anime.

Character - Rika is the most important character in this volume as this is when the story really deepens and she shows a different side to her read more

This was a great arc, but sadly it was a little shorter than others. I was able to like Akasaka a lot and i started to like Ooshi a little more too.
As far as art goes, this is the cutest Rika that has been drawn so far, maybe it's the fact that she is younger than in the other arcs.
This arc was very different than the others, taking place before the Oyashiro's curse has started, and the Dam project war is still happening. I really liked that this arc is so different than others, sadly only two episodes of this arc were put into the read more
