Episode 21 - I'm Sorry

https://youtu.be/zcWLxwghjT0


Welcome to a damn long episode of Higurashi lmao! This chapter part was a long one, but at the same time it has a tonne going on. Rena's home visit is the main thing, where Keiichi is home alone and she...doesn't seem to have her friendly head on today!

We also check out the new TIPS, which gives us some insight into how Keiichi is thinking, even at the supermarket when there are so many people around. It shows how the curse/paranoia is panning out and how it works etc; the supermarket part wasn't in the anime/manga, so it's really fun to see that. Also, we find out a bit about split personalities. This puts a great spin on Rena's actions.

Thanks for watching! Just 3 episodes of the arc left and that means we have a tonne of great things to end things off 0_0.

Episode 23 - Batter Up!

https://youtu.be/7HR-s0YobMs


Hey all, welcome to the last of the main story for this arc! This time, we see the after effects of Keiichi's injection and we also get to see how everything wraps up (or y'know...kinda).

Thanks for watching! There's one more episode coming to show what the cast thought of the arc themselves...it's actually pretty good ha ;).

Episode 24 - Abducted By Demons ~FIN~

https://youtu.be/M2feAjXXcVM


Hey all, here's the last of the series for now! The abducted by demons arc really is just one big prologue, with so much more to come in the other arcs, once they reach the steam store. As for this episode, it's a a bit of fun with the in-game cast, saying what their theories are and stuff. So, do you think it was people or a curse who caused all of this for our Keiichi? ;)

Thanks for watching! I'll be adding the rest of the arcs to this thread as they become available so until then...see you soon! :)

P.S. Comments are always welcome. Do you think it was a curse or people that caused all this? No spoilers please, if you already know! :p

Arc 2: Cotton Drifting

Episode 25 - Reset!


https://youtu.be/8CCqkWiDdxk


Welcome back to Higurashi! It's been a good few months since we finished the first arc but now we can carry on since the 2nd arc has been released on Steam! :yay:

Watanagashi
(or the cotton drifting arc), is a huge change from the first. For a start, our Keiichi isn't the main victim of the curse this time, but someone else in our club is! I'll leave who it is as a surprise ;). I will say that the story is completely different during every arc and zip my mouth shut :s.

As for this episode, it's all about a nice club activity in town. Nothing horror, nothing vicious, nothing harmful. That's for later...;).

Thanks for watching! See you next time for chapter 2! Hopefully, it'll be split into chunks like in the 1st arc, so we can have shorter episodes lol :s.

P.S.
This series will be bi-daily, filling in the FFX gaps :).

Episode 26 - Cardcaptor Keiichi!

https://youtu.be/3DR7Y9EQNhE


Hey all, why don't we give the first half of chapter 2 a look? This chapter is all about a word game that's actually pretty fun! Me and Keiichi have way too much in common...

That's about all I have to say about this episode actually lmao! Thanks for watching! I'll see you next time for the rest of chapter 2! I'm assuming it'll kick the arc off properly :lew:.

Episode 27 - My Twin Angel

https://youtu.be/qodwg_ZrO1g


Hey peoples, it's time to head on over to a brand new location with our dad! He loves his son so much that he'll take him to a perv's paradise; a place where men from around the world join to look at the waitresses skimpy outfits: Angel Mort! By the way, I swear I've heard that name in other anime or something...

Guess who works there though! It's Mion! Or is it someone else...Keiichi seems to think it really is Mion hiding her embarrassment by creating another persona. What do you guys think?

Thanks for watching! We'll maybe get to know "Shion" a bit better next time? In a bit! :)

Episode 28 - Red Hot Curry!

https://youtu.be/QGql2Qy4M7c


Curry is love, curry is life! Whoever knocks against curry will have their heads knocked clean off!~

Ha hey peoples. This time around we see the start of chapter 3, which is a new type of club activity! Our group needs to enter a curry cooking competition (due to the teacher's nutty love for it) and they decide that there must be a club activity hidden within! Can Keiichi win or will Satoko, the Queen of traps, stand in his way? Maybe Rikka will charm her way to winning? Or maybe someone else will win entirely...

Thanks for watching! We'll get back to the main plot next time! See you there, hopefully :).

P.S.
This part is not in the anime or manga. Worth a look :).

Episode 29 - Shion's Act Of Kindness

https://youtu.be/gHB97jJdrzw


Hey all, welcome back to Hinamizawa! The rest of this chapter is a very subtle way of showing Keiichi and Shion's bond starting to form. It's all a little bit confusing at this point, when you don't know if she's even real or not, but even still she fits in with the universe so well :).

Thanks for watching! See you next time when we kick off chapter 4! :)

P.S.
The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Never have truer words ever been spoken :s.

Episode 30 - A Protective Village

https://youtu.be/Jb1umPtiSEk


Hey there folks! There's no club activity at the start of chapter 4! What the hell???

This episode shows off just how protective the Hinamizawa citizens can be; probably a sign of how they came together to protect their village back in the dam wars of arc 1? You see, Keiichi has a run in with a biker gang outside of the village and Shion and a few Hinamizawans are around to see what's on...

Would you say what happens is pretty creepy (in a collective cult kind of way) or would you say it's great that they all come together to protect one another? :D

Thanks for watching! We'll see what Shion has to say at the Angel Mort next time :).

P.S. Check out those episode titles lately! This arc is so nice and sweet and full of candy canes! Ha.

Episode 31 - The Dam War (Extended Edition)

https://youtu.be/VKXX9_-FeN0


Hey peoples, here's the rest of chapter 4! Shion and Keiichi have a quick chat in Angel Mort (while she should be working!!!). One topic that rears its ugly head is the dam war, but it seems that it has quite a positive light to it this time around.

My favourite thing about this part though is that Shion/Mion's nan is mentioned! She's an amazing character and I hope so bad that the game shows her like she was in the anime and manga! Something to look forward to, that's for dam sure!

Thanks for watching! See you soon for chapter 5! :lew:

Episode 32 - Wipey Wipey~

https://youtu.be/rAbpUcQxKQk


Hey all, it looks like it's time for the taste testing at Angel Mort! It's all fun and games until some perv tries to harass Shion...can Keiichi beat the perv? Can our club beat him? There's something pretty uplifting about this part...and something pretty damn hilarious lmao.

Thanks for watching! See you next time for the aftermath of the war! :D

Episode 33 - Double Trouble

https://youtu.be/srylONSefw8


So are there two Mions or two Shions??? Confuzzled!

...Keiichi you derp lmao. Welcome to a grande revelation! A revelation that no one could possibly see coming! After some pleasant time with Shion, we head on over to the toy store to buy a doll for a her...only for things to get a little bit weird lmao.

Rena also goes through why Mion is a bit upset with us, even if Mion hasn't told us so :/. This it where things get a little bit messy within our club.

Thanks for watching! We'll move onto the next chapter next time to see how this evolves. We're reaching the end of happy times, people. For sure :s.

P.S. Meet the bodyguard/butler/driver. Yes...meet the driver :D.

Episode 34 - Avoiding The Issue

https://youtu.be/ESNUckV5z4s


A short episode deserves a short summary ha. This time around we have a chat about sorting out our problems with Mion (though God knows, Keiichi still seems confused). Mion's solution this this whole problem is to ignore the issue and pretend it doesn't exist. Naturally, this is going to go well :p.

Thanks for watching! We'll have a much longer episode next time and I can assure you...it's going to leap the story into the depths of despair!!! And stuff. In a bit! :)

Episode 35 - Festival Aid!

https://youtu.be/-uyXKhJ16oQ


Hey there folks, the rest of this chapter is pretty darn long, but it starts to progress the main plot of this arc. Keiichi heads on over to the shrine to help prepare for the Watanagashi festival...but he meets some people who don't quite make him feel comfortable...

Thanks so much for watching! The next episode is more like a feature-length film so warm yourselves up for next time lmao ;).

Episode 36 - Torture At The Festival

https://youtu.be/CuQSkqyLW28


Hey there folks, welcome to the cotton drifting festival! You may think that the festival should be fun, and it is for a wee while, but for Keiichi and Shion, it's not a walk in the park.

Our favourite nurse and photographer are up to trouble and picklocking the shrine! We get caught up in all this and end up heading inside too. But what could be inside? It's just torture waiting to find out! :eek:

Thanks for watching this extra long episode! We're going into crazy mode now (you just know it when you find out Shion is hearing things), so prepare for things to start heating up! ;)

Episode 37 - Bibliotecan Ventures

https://youtu.be/KIg9COr5cJM


Let's go return our books to the library, shall we? :lew:. We have a nice peaceful time there and everything goes swimmingly with Shion.

...until Ooishi shows up and it turns out the police know about Keiichi and Shion's other ventures :s.

Thanks so much for watching! We'll wrap up chapter 8 next time and maybe we'll get to see what implications this has on our little group. Things are certainly getting serious! :(

Episode 38 - Christmas Mayor Hunt!

https://youtu.be/_38pLh0vLz0


Merry Christmas folks! I wasn't expecting to be able to get an episode out today, but I've found a quiet two minutes so here you go :).

This time around, our Keiichi has a quick chat with Shion over the phone and it's ever so weird :s. Methinks she may be going a bit fruit loopy. There's also another strange phonecall from some stranger. While Keiichi has no idea what it's all about, the TIPS reveal that the mayor is missing. Uh oh...

Thanks so much for watching! Enjoy your Christmas and I'll see you around! :lew:

Episode 39 - Rika's Revelations

https://youtu.be/kqT2z7Se1T0


Hey there folks, sorry for the delay! I had my steam account a wee bit stolen and it all went a bit to pot :/. It's still not completely sorted now, but I at least have access to my games again :).

Anyways, this time around we find out that the mayor has gone missing! Why would the curse have picked him instead of Shion or Keiichi who trespassed in the shrine? :eek:. I mean, we found out he was missing in the TIPS last time but now it's all out and the school is all miserable and stuff because of it :(.

We also find out that Rika knows a lot about Mion's recent behaviour :s. While Mion isn't showing any sort of misery or cunning in the forefront, there's something definitely going on! Does she have something to do with the mayor's disappearance? How does Rika know about all this anyway? I know she's one of the leading families of Hinamizawa but blimey...there's something going on there too, I tells ya! ;)

Thanks so much for watching! See you next time! :)

Episode 40 - Shion's Anxiety

https://youtu.be/PGk8hqLTr0I


Hey all, there's just one major plot point in this episode and that's what Shion knows about the mayor's disappearance! Unfortunately, that may not be great news for Rika either...

Thanks so much for watching! We'd better go on the hunt for Rika next time and hope to God she's ok :s.
