After moving into the quiet town of Hinamizawa, Maebara Keiichi spends his days blissfully in school often playing games with his local friends. However, appearances can be deceiving. One fateful day, Keiichi stumbles upon news of a murder that had occurred in Hinamizawa. From this point on, horrific events unfold in front of Keiichi, as he soon learns his close friends may not be all that they seem. Based on the amateur mystery game by 7th Expansion, the story is told in a series of different scenarios.

Onisarashi-hen is a manga-only scenario featuring mostly different characters from those in the scenarios from the games with a few exceptions. It focuses on Kimiyoshi Natsumi's family and the happenings after Hinamizawa's great gas disaster.


Higurashi no Naku Koro ni: Onisarashi-hen was published as a 2-in-1 omnibus edition in English as Higurashi When They Cry: Demon Exposing Arc by Yen Press on May 31, 2011.
