Episode 41 - How To hold A Ladder

https://youtu.be/RLjlQktjJUY


Step 1 - Find a ladder (all good book stores should have one)
Step 2 - Go to building (all good book stores should have one)
Step 3 - Place on ground while fully extended (this is the tricky bit)
Step 4 - Allow someone who trusts you to climb up the ladder as you hold it
Step 5 - Shake like mad and kill them off

We go check to see if Rika is at home...with a ladder :gasp2:

Episode 42 - Keep On Truckin'!

https://youtu.be/GdrHHaGhTK4


Hey there folks, it looks like the villagers are on the hunt for Rika and Satoko (though mainly Rika); they have the pitchforks and torches at the ready to burn the witches! Not really...they love them very much :'(.

Anyways, the night ends with a nice chat in the back of Ooishi's truck. He's such a smooth talker, that Ooishi...

Thanks so much for watching! Chapter 11 is coming next and god knows this story ain't gonna get any brighter 0_0.

Episode 43 - Rena Guesses

https://youtu.be/xqUUnPUy0nA


H-H-H-Hey there folks! ;)

This time around we're going to have a theory of what's going on from Rena and Keiichi fits together some of his own puzzle pieces with the info only he and Shion knows.

We also have another chat with Ooishi and find something out that's oh so shocking! We haven't been talking to Shion since our trip to the library? Then that means...It the clown has been visiting! Evil clown balloons in the library 0_0.

Thanks so much for watching! Hopefully we'll figure out this deadly mystery next time??? (Nah ha)

Episode 44 - A "Shion" Exposed

https://youtu.be/iob9ZVVeWmI


Hey there folks, this time around we have another phone call with Shion...only now we know that Shion disappeared days ago! So...who is it? Keiichi has a very firm idea and it makes sense.

Thanks so much for watching! I've actually recorded the rest of the arc by now and there are only 3 episodes left! Shorter than I expected :s. See ya! :).

Episode 45 - Canned Flesh

https://youtu.be/XIS6Ro7J9KM


Hey peoples, it's time for us to go visit the Sonozaki residence and see how Mion's doing! Y'know...with the help of the police to protect us :s.

While there, we learn a wee bit of history about Hinimazawa (it ain't all sunshine and rainbows...especially when you're eating canned human flesh!). We also get Mion to admit her wrongdoings! Honest!

Mion is ever so kind and decides to show us (well, Keiichi) where the torture chamber is. Is that a Shion we hear as we're strapped to a torture device and about to have nails hammered into our bodies???

Thanks so much for watching! We'll see how Keiichi deals with this torture next time! :eek:

P.S. Apologies for the long episode. I wish I had stopped where the achievement popped really but I didn't think it would be so long afterwards lmao :s.

Episode 46 - Keiichi's Nail Treatment

https://youtu.be/84OXSr0Hkek


Hey there folks, welcome to what is technically the end of the arc! I mean, we'll be checking out the bonus content where the cast theorises what the hell's going on, but this is the end of the plot of the arc really.

As for this episode: will Keiichi escape the pain of the nail torture device? Will Shion escape the prison? Will Mion become sane again or even give herself in to the police? :eek:

I'll just say that there's twist after twist incoming. Keep a hold of your pants sirs and madams! ;)

Thanks so much for watching! The cast theories are incoming next time and then we'll be done for a bit :).

P.S.
His nails are now all red and shiny :D.

Episode 47 - Cotton Drifting

https://youtu.be/RsVMkcbZgUw


Hey there folks, welcome to the last of arc 2! This time around we're gonna check out what we unlocked at the end of the main plot: the cast theories! Just like at the end of arc 1, they all get together and have a good chinwag about what they think is going on; this time they have two arcs to work with and come up with some really great stuff!

So, after all this, do you reckon all of the deaths were caused by a curse? Or do you think it was people? It seems like the Sonozakis are highly suspicious in this arc, but the cast have a counter-argument for that!

Thanks so much for watching this series! There's no more on Steam yet, so we'll have to wait to continue the series once more! I'm guessing around 3 months but you can never tell. I'll see you around on some other vids hopefully? :)

Arc 3: Curse Killing

Episode 48 - Let's Try This Again!

https://youtu.be/v1zXBZ1bA04


Hey there folks, the 3rd arc of Higurashi has finally been released on Steam so let's get cracking!

So this time around we take on the start of Satoko's arc: the Curse Killing Arc! Y'know, you could call it the Tatarigoroshi arc but...that's a bit of a mouthful lol.

As for the bit of plot that's going on: it looks like there has been a dead body in the sewage area for a while now! A few days in fact :gasp2:. Don't worry about that though; we've got a bento making contest to win! Well done Keiichi...I'm sure you fooled them all lmao!

Thanks so much for watching! I hope you enjoy what's to come! God knows, we needed an arc based on Satoko after her time in the background those last two arcs :D.

P.S. I added a bit to the start and end. I'm not sure if it's out of place or not but I wanted to try and do something a bit different than with the last two arcs :s.

Episode 49 - Satoko The Mom

https://youtu.be/TmURqXSZ0p8


Fire! Fire! *cough*

Hey folks lol. This time around, we see exactly how Keiichi does when cooking for himself. We all heard how he's a bonafide professional chef so this can only end well, right? :gasp:

...so anyway, Satoko comes over to make Keiichi a meal (he doesn't want to turn her down and seem too arrogant, y'know?). It's actually a really heartwarming part and it builds up their relationship much better than in the anime and manga. I'm loving this arc so far :s.

Thanks for watching folks! See you next time for chapter 2 and a certain bento-making competition! :lew:

Episode 50 - Bento Box Scallywaggery!

https://youtu.be/WxHlVBpxXIE


Hey there folks, are you ready for the great bento box bonanza? The game has been building up to this one for a whole chapter so this should be good :griin:. Of course, it doesn't help that there's some underhanded scallywaggery going on :gasp:.

Oh! but the best part is that they finally show the teacher! She looks a little bit different from the anime but not too much. How she looks isn't that important when you consider that our group are going to dare to chance being murdered by her!

Thanks for watching folks! We'll finish off chapter 2 next time. You never know...there may be significantly fewer club members alive now :sad2:.

P.S.
Oh wow, we're 50 episodes in! Only on arc 3 too lmao. I'm thinking this game may take a couple of years more to play through unless they suddenly speed up the releases :s.

Episode 51 - Attack Of The Housewives!

https://youtu.be/6-pMHf2QVJc


Hey there folks, it's time for Keiichi and Satoko to get some alone time! You'd think this is just another cooking part with Satoko, and it partially is, but it's more about showing their relationship grow. I'm loving how they've done it in this version of the story. It's slow, but relaxing and heartwarming :s.

Other than that, we learn a bit more about Satoshi and Satoko's relationship and...well, a wee bit more lol ;).

Thanks for watching! We'll have a gander at chapter 3 next time :).

Episode 52 - Work Party!

https://youtu.be/yIQ2OnArwJQ


~Party over here!~


Hey folks, Keiichi's parents are home! They're knackered but work doesn't end just because you're home. You have to invite all the workmates and stuff over and make sure they get properly pissed so you can make all the business deals! ;)

Of course, nothing is more important than fighting for your friends right? He just needs to take his golf club and away he goes, leaving his poor parents behind to take on the house full of guests :lew:.

Thanks for watching folks! We'll check out the rest of chapter 3 next time ;).

Episode 54 - BBQ In The Sun

https://youtu.be/pvTxI3lzvNs


Hey there folks, Shion's back! This time around, she isn't falling all over herself around Keiichi (reasons pending lol).

Y'see, this part is all about Irie's promise to the baseball team to throw them a right knees up! Or...a BBQ :/. It's really nice and all but what happens towards the end is the main point...

Thanks for watching! I'll see you next time for an eating contest? Well, that's kinda spoiled in this ep lmao. Bah! See you then :lew:.

Episode 55 - Rena's Reaction

https://youtu.be/9ZHi9kp_Elc


Hey there folks, here comes the darkness! It may not last very long, but Rena is the character who really kicks things off this time (not that it's her turn to shine but...she has her reasons lol). Then again, she isn't the only character who's having issues with the term "transferred schools" or "ran away". There's something ever so suspicious going on with the whole Satoshi situation. Hmmmmm :hmmm:.

Maybe things will stay a-ok if Keiichi just doesn't talk about all that, huh? Well...maybe...

Thanks for watching folks! We'll be moving onto another school day tomorrow and I get the distinct impression that the happy days are behind our motley crew :sad3:.

P.S. I recommend sticking around to watch the TIPS at the end. They should really be in the main story lmao! ;)

Episode 56 - Mystery Absence

https://youtu.be/kLduW3SvV9M


Hey peoples, it's a pretty short one today! Chapter 5 kicks things off with a pretty subtle school day, without a Satoko in sight. It's not like her to be absent...

There's a lot of mystery surrounding this fact but our group make sure to try and keep positive. I actually love this part and, while it could have been boring, the way that the group hold things together and completely turn Rika and Keiichi's moods around is something I couldn't stop reading about :s.

Thanks for watching folks! See you next time for the rest of chapter 5! Maybe we'll find out where Satoko was? :)

Episode 57 - The School Bully

https://youtu.be/NrMfp0oB0Gg


Hey peoples, welcome to the rest of chapter 5! It's time for one of the characters from the other 2 arcs to come into play now and we get to see just how different Ooishi can be when he's serious about his job 0_0. I love me a good villain.

Luckily, there's a doctor on site and we're fine, but this is the point where we know something is wrong with Satoko's absence. Ooishi and Satoko have some history and apparently it's family related ;).

Thanks for watching! We'll see where this is heading in the next episode maybe. It ain't gonna be pretty :D.

Episode 58 - Family Drama

https://youtu.be/18uBUHoaa7k


Hey peoples, it looks like Satoko is ready to return to school after 3 days, which is nice. Maybe she can explain where she has been?

It turns out that her uncle has returned to Hinamizawa (as mentioned in the last set of TIPS), which means that he is her guardian again! Yay! She'll be nice and safe now, right? He'll be cooking for her, cleaning the house for her. It'll be lovely :). Maybe.

Thanks for watching folks! See you next time for the rest of chapter 6! :)

Episode 59 - Keiichi The Secret Spy

https://youtu.be/FyoFi3yvX1I


Hey folks, Keiichi is worried about Satoko...so it's time to don the secret spy outfit and finally meet this uncle of hers! As we've already established, he's a pleasant chap with nothing but family love for his niece.

This part is pretty heartbreaking and it's made all the worse by those chosen tracks. Actually, one of them is my favourite from the game so far.

Thanks for watching folks! It's off to the land of chapter 7 next! How can things possibly get any worse? :s

P.S. Who doesn't like snacks??? Satoko is so weird. It may be the trauma...if so, I guess I can forgive her :/.

Episode 60 - Skipping School

https://youtu.be/U4TOqr7jVDI


Hey there folks! After a good stress-out in the last episode, Keiichi has slept late for school :(. So what do you do when you sleep late? Visit the dump, of course! :yay:

While he's there, he meets some characters from the past 2 arcs: Takano and our favourite photographer! Ye olde nurse decides that it's a good idea to put a new idea into Keiichi's head...

Thanks for watching folks! We'll see what that conversation teaches us next time...will it help at all in saving Satoko? :s

P.S. A bit of the video stutter returns in this episode unfortunately, for around about 2 minutes in the middle. Since this one was recorded though, a few things have been tested and (fingers crossed) it's sorted. More on that next time lol :).
