Can I say title arc sounds really cool? And the cover is eye catching? Anyway, this was interesting. And can't say anything other than that. But still, the arc or story whatever, is still good.
Higurashi is absolutely one of my top three favorite animes. I was so, so, so, happy that I was able to so far have 1-10 of the manga series, just because the manga goes more in depth from the anime, giving me the chance to understand more than what I had already seen. I do admit the plot line in this arc was a little confusing and something I hadn't seen before. However as it got more in depth, I was beyond happy to see something new that is based about two of the main characters. No spoilers here of course.
