    Even more creepy

    So we have a new character: Mion's twin sis Shion. With this one we have a new arc and the other characters returning. Of course its short lived charming-ness has to end and the creepy tone returns. This series is really weird and creepy and I want to keep reading. This series is just that. And I kind of like Shion but Mion's awesome too. And what's with anime, manga and maid uniforms?

    New Arc and New Artist Keeps the Series Going Strong

    Right away the reader will notice the more shonen art style as Houjyou steps in to replace Suzuragi. However this does not detract from the series' quality or overall tone. I especially like this volume because it seemed to have more character development and emotional dilemmas that didn't immediately lead into driving a person to murder. In all, Higurashi fans will not be disappointed by this volume and I look forward to the story's continuation.

    A thrilling new "question arc" from Hinamizawa

    Time is reset, and even Keiichi doesn't remember the tragedies of Onikakushi-hen (Spirited away by demons arc)! It's a new day, and the slaughter and memories of before have been washed away. Keiichi meets up with Mion, who claims to be Mion's twin sister. Keiichi doesn't buy it, of course, but could it be true? Find out as the story further unfolds in the only possible way it can be told: a grand reset! Not to worry! Everything will grow to make sense!

    Worthwhile and Totally Addictive

    As a fan of the anime, as well as horror in general, I have to say, Higurashi: When They Cry is one of the most carefully crafted and entertaining anime I have ever laid my eyes on. From the first episode, I was hooked. With this book begins the second question arc: The Cotton Drifting Arc (Watanagashi-hen). For any newcomers to the world of Hinamizawa, I suggest you start your journey on the Abducted by the Demons Arc.

    After I purchased it, the first thing I took into account was the improvement of the artwork. A different artist worked on this book; and for that, I am completely pleased. The previous one's art was a bit lacking and didn't intensify the suspense of the first arc as much as it could have. With Yutori Houjyou, I can definitely see that that problem won't be such a concern.

    The second arc starts off basically as the first; Keiichi Maebara, new kid in town. He joins the after-school game club with all his harem-y friends. Yay. Mion Sonozaki, the focus of this arc, is going to have her girly side exploited by introducing her twin sister Shion. With Keiichi at a loss for which girl is which and both girls trying to win him over and pretending to be each other, anyone can see how a typical manga love story will unfold. Don't forget, my friends, this isn't your typical romantic comedy. This is Higurashi.

    In the next volume, it goes into more of that "higurashi" tone. I shouldn't say anything else; I don't want to spoil it for the newbies! :)

    Over all, this series is a great buy. Pick up the anime as well (preferably the original Japanese). Enjoy the book!
