One year after his disappearance, the police are no closer to finding Satoshi or solving his aunt's murder, and Shion is quickly running out of patience. Dressing alternately as "Shion" and "Mion," she positions herself as close to Keiichi as possible. Given that he too entered the forbidden Saiguden with this year's victims, Shion suspects he will be the next to be "demoned away." Shion hopes her actions will spur on the true murderer, so that when the serial killer does attack Keiichi, she will be ready.

Higurashi When They Cry: Eye Opening Arc, Volume 3 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
This is just getting confusing, and creepy and weird of course but still. Really good volume so far in this arc.
This is an excellent story, and it really gives a new spin on the question arc. I certainly wouldn't have expected to go quite this way, but its cool how it all fits in the greater storyline.
If you like thrilling, heart-churning, and a little psychological twist, then this is definitely the book for you! I have to say--when I watched the whole anime, it really got my heart pumping. Indeed the anime was obviously an impact, as it already told what happens, just being able to read this makes an even more powerful impact. The art in this specific arc (as well as the Cotton Drifting Arc) is fantastic, and I couldn't ask for a better storyline. So, once again, A MUST READ.
