Higurashi When They Cry Hou
The 58th year of Showa, early summer.
It’s June, and the summer heat has arrived earlier than it does most years.
By day there are crickets, and by night there are cicadas.
We’re in Hinamizawa, a small village in the countryside.
There are fewer than two thousand people here. But every year, there is an event.
This event is a mysterious death.
(The series has run from 1979 to 1983)
On a certain day in June, someone dies, and someone else goes missing.
The series of deaths is connected to the upheaval surrounding the dam construction project.
A murder case that was covered up is being reenacted.
Is it a conspiracy? A coincidence? Or perhaps a curse?
A different choice… reveals a new end.
A different path… unveils new truths.
What once was thought to be certain, proves malleable, and patterns begin to emerge.
There is no way to avert this tragedy. There is no choice but to give up trying. 
But don’t. Fight. 
For the days after the end.
