With Ookami Kakushi, think of a much softer, less violent version of Higurashi. Except, what we seem to be dealing with isn't a festial revolving around a god of death, but a wolf god. There are enough changes, for it to be it's own story, yet simular enough to ask, did the creator get some ideas from Higurashi? That includes some of the sound effects.

Both are about someone moving into a mysterious mountain town where the main protagonist is really popular. They have the same "Everyone is dying" feel to them... and they both have a big town legend mystery that you have to try and solve.

You get the same feeling from them; cute characters, but a mystical atmosphere.

Same creator, but not same awesomeness.
Secrets, festivals, mysterious killings, legends and innocent school life are the things connecting those two series. If you liked one you might like the other, but Higurashi is much, much better.

Just by seeing it, it gives off the feeling that everyone is hiding a dark secret from the new guy, just like in Higurashi. People disappearing and cover ups, all relevant. Loved Higurashi and this one looks like it will be just as good.

Both start with a boy joining a new city, and have no idea what is in store for them, they son find out that there is more to the city than they first thought, and that close friends seem to be keeping everything from them.

Both have a guy that moves to a new town that is constantly surrounded by girls, a festival, and a mysterious secret.

they do give the same vibes. the normal days in this anime is kind of lighthearted to the point that it almost looks like just some kind of a happy anime with normal stuffs going on but later on the much darker and much more serious stuff will come out just like higurashi

Ookami Kakushi is from the same guy who wrote Higurashi (Ryukishi07). Also, both animes features cute characters inside a mystical atmosphere (Yandere).

They both have a lot of similarities, with the upcoming festival, girls surrounding the main character, a new transfer student, a lighthearted feel covering a sinister undertone, and the new and old town resembling the dam construction project in Higurashi. And they're both by the same author.

They both take place in small towns with killer lolis.

Most of it is considered a rip-off of Higurashi.
But it's actually epic and even though it's similar to Higurashi a LOT, it was one of the best and memorable anime I'd watched in a while.

There's an orange festival in Ookami Kakushi similar to Higurashi's Cotton Drifting festival, there are dam issues in both series - and many more similarities.

I strongly recommend this to people who enjoy memorable music, great animations, a calm atmosphere (at times), which then occasionally shifts to a horror-like atmosphere, much like Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.
