Tatarigoroshi-Hen is the question arc that place a precedent towards the rest of the series. The story reveals new and prominent information to the reader and is a huge twist in Higurashi.

The story follows Keiichi and his relationship with Satoko. Through character development within a relatively short time span, we learn difficulties Satoko deal with. Keiichi takes the burden upon himself and the story slowly take dramatic turns. The reader will question events that will be explained in the answer arcs, but will leave a great impression of how grand the mystery of Higurashi truly is after finishing the read more
