Episode 61 - Convince To Influence

https://youtu.be/NkmVI_PDCgE


Hey there folks, it's time for someone to actually do something about Satoko's situation! Keiichi has decided (with the help of his pals) that he would go to the teacher and make sure she calls the child safety people! It's Chie's time to finally shine! ;)

Thanks so much for watching folks! See you in a wee bit!

P.S.
I love how we get to see a bit more of Chie this time. She is showing herself to be a good teacher who actually cares about her students :).

Episode 62 - Murder For Me

https://youtu.be/iVSzb4NwHcY


Hey there folks, what we have here is the answer to whether the child consultation center will actually help our fair Satoko! :s

Also, Keiichi decides to have a back-up plan: if the Sonozaki family are at the root of Oyashiro-sama's curse, then maybe Mion will listen to Keiichi and make sure the uncle is the next chosen target?

Thanks for watching folks! See you next time for the start of the next chapter! :D

Episode 63 - Satoko Snaps!

https://youtu.be/Jrlef0e2Wf8


Hey all. So...it seems that Satoko has finally snapped. I won't say any more on that front so that you can see that how big of an impact it has and I really don't want to spoil this bit. I'll leave it to you :).

Thanks for watching folks! How will Keiichi progress from here? :eek:

Episode 64 - Choose Your Weapon!

https://youtu.be/Z_ePTjIGrsY


Hey there folks, it looks like Keiichi is serious about this murder stuff huh? Ok, so he's gonna kick things off by figuring out what weapon to use to kill off our favourite uncle. I'm willing to bet it'll be a golf club!

Other than that, there's a nice conversation between Keiichi and his mother (something you don't seem to see too often...I wish she was a more important character really). They have a lovely chinwag about her favourite crime novels, since she's a huge fan of them; we find out that the best novels have a way for the killer to be figured out so maybe Keiichi is barking up the wrong tree? :s

Thanks for watching folks! There's more plotting to be had next time! :lew:

Episode 65 - The Wheres And Hows

https://youtu.be/s8VxF5webuk


Hey there folks! This time around, Keiichi is planning where to murder and how he'll go about it; yeah, we know it's a metal bat by now, but more is needed than just knowing the weapon, ya know? ;)

There's also the matter of getting Satoko out of the way for the plan to work, so there's a lovely phonecall between Keiichi and Mion. It actually reveals something very unexpected...surely this won't affect anything?

Thanks for watching folks! :)

------------------------------------------

Episode 66 - Gravedigger Ghoul

https://youtu.be/IAvQMFiG7Ug


Why, hello again! So, it's the day of the Watanagashi festival! Keiichi has one thing left to do before the evening arrives and that is to dig the hole for the body ahead of time. With shovel in hand, let's see how he does! :)

There's a little bit I quite like that expands on our Keiichi's character, which is the part where he is thinking about his past while digging. Cram school is something that would turn anyone into a complete psycho...right? :eek:

Thanks for watching! See you next time for the main event; by that I obviously mean Keiichi's fun time at the festival. Yes. :D

Episode 67 - Murder Most Foul

https://youtu.be/0y6O1IERP9U


Hey there folks, we've made it to the murder of Satoko's uncle! I love how this part plays out, showing how weak the big villain is after all! The thing is, while Keiichi makes it home, there seem to be a few issues...

I wonder if Keiichi will be able to sort everything out without being caught? Will he be "demoned away" like Satoshi? Will he be able to return to a sane form of himself? Heck, will he be able to go back to the fun days with his mates like he desperately longs for?

Thanks for watching folks :).

Episode 68 - Takano's Mental Games

https://youtu.be/zFKD2v-EO5E


Hey all, welcome back to Hinamizawa! While the murder is over, it doesn't mean that all is over. Keiichi is now showing signs of paranoia, but with Takano around, who can blame him?

Thanks for watching! Next time we have an incredibly long episode (there's been one in every arc so far lol). Be prepared for a 90 minute chapter! It might be long, but it's a whopper...see you in a bit! :)

Episode 69 - Alternate Reality

https://youtu.be/BohboCvbkuk


Hey there folks, we've reached this arc's hugely long episode! Grab the popcorn! Grab the vodka! Here we goooooo!

There's something strange going down in Hinamizawa and it ain't the murder :gasp:. Apparently, Keiichi was at the festival last night but how could he have been? How could the uncle still be alive? Something just ain't right!

Keiichi ain't having none of that and is going a bit loopy trying to figure it out so he needs to tell someone he respects and relies upon so much! I get the distinct impression that was a bad idea lmao.

Everything is just going ever so wrong so our little Maebara must go back to the scene of the crime and make sure the uncle was actually killed! Only problem is...not only has he confessed to someone but Ooishi is on the prowl :dead:.

Keiichi doesn't seem quite like the murder expert he was making out to be :/. I wonder if he'll make it out of all this without being arrested or even (typical Higurashi style) dead???

Thanks for watching! :)

Episode 70 - Satoko The Boiled Shrimp

https://youtu.be/yYKjjjoKal4

Episode 71 - One Last Push!

https://youtu.be/SmyHqHo2exI


Hey there folks, Satoko is feeling a little better, physically! Yay! Doesn't seem like she's too great mentally though. There's some pretty big stuff going on that push her in that general direction this time around though so who can blame her? While we've seen more about Keiichi's reaction to all this, this time we're finally seeing what Satoko has been hiding all along!

For those in the know, this episode has the bridge scene, the body in a bag (intestines!) and a suicide 0_0. It's a good one! ;)

Thanks for watching! See you next time for the grand finale of the arc! There are still 2 episodes coming though :).

Episode 72 - Hinamizawa Erupts!

https://youtu.be/8mpIy6DVTMM


Hey folks! Here is the end of the 3rd arc! I want to keep it all a surprise (don't worry, the title of this vid doesn't give too much away), so I won't say too much. It's a hell of an ending...I'd recommend it ;).

What do you think of the surprise ending? How can there possibly be a killer for this arc after all?

Thanks for watching folks! There's still the all-star cast and their theories coming for the grand finale of the arc! I hope to see you there! :)

P.S.
Oh yeah, this one has the list of dead/missing/living people too! I'd better mention that :s.

Episode 73 - Curse Killing

https://youtu.be/ba_2bJALEmE


Hey all, here's the last we'll see of Higurashi for a wee while! The cast all come back to life and give out some ideas and theories in a light-hearted way (just like the other 2 All-Cast Reviews we saw from the past 2 arcs).

I really love these parts. They really can clarify a bit and give you some ideas to think on. They aren't too serious and let you have some fun too ha.

Thanks for watching Higurashi! With the end of the curse killing arc here, we'll have to wait a good 3 months for the next arc (though this was an underestimation last time). I think things start to become a bit more coherent from here on out (maybe there's like a mini arc before that), so it's gonna get good!

See you in a few months! :lew:

~Time Killing~


Episode 74 - Rewind The Clocks!


https://youtu.be/xkhkLS3rTWY


Hey there folks, the 4th and final question arc of Higurashi is out now on Steam so it's time to get started :)!

This arc is very different from the previous 3 arcs, in that we're not Keiichi! We're a new guy called Akasaka and he's gone into the past to investigate some odd goings on with the dam war all those years ago; yep, we're going back in time this around :D.

I'll leave it at that since spoiling the story would...spoil the entire point of the game lol. Thanks so much for watching! The rest of chapter 1 will be with you next time :).

Episode 75 - Journey

https://youtu.be/pe2aeFp1L7A


Hey folks, I was going for a game reference with the title but then noticed it wasn't that obvious lmao. Well...there ya go! :)

Anyways, this episode has the rest of chapter 1, with the help of Ooishi we travel on over to Hinamizawa and see that we aren't going to have the warmest of welcomes from the village :s. They really don't want to lose their homes so it's completely justified imo. Even the kidnapping isn't an awful thing when we know they won't harm him. They just want their hooooomes :'(.

Thanks for watching folks! There's plenty more going on in this ep but I'll leave it all for you ;).

Episode 76 - Our Little Meeper

https://youtu.be/glIDN8nll5E


Lmao I would imagine meepers being something Velmer from Scooby Doo would say :/.

Anyways, welcome to chapter 2! Akasaka has finally made it to the village of Hinamizawa! We have a friendly face here to meet us in the form of: midget Rika! That's right, if there's a question arc that's considered Rika's, this is it! I always found that she was put too much in the background in the first 3 arcs, but now possibly my favourite character in the gang is in the forefront :lew:.

Our little meeper is gonna be joining us for our sightseeing tour of the village, ready to keep us such good company ;).

*Meep*
*...Meep*
*Meep!*
*M...Meep*


Thanks for watching! See you next time for the most beautiful view of the village and...a wee bit more 0_0.

P.S. Who on Earth is this Makino? Get 'im outta here! :p

Episode 77 - A Change Of Face

https://youtu.be/MXRVaDtP8BU


Hey peoples, the rest of chapter 2 is here! Rika has decided to show us the most beautiful view in Hinamizawa: the hilltop by the Furude Shrine. I can see why :).

However, she also shows us a different side to herself, but I don't think she did it to be harsh or anything. It's an important message :s.

Oh! Other than that important stuff, we get to see the cute scene of Rika trying to wash her hands! Bring your imagination along...it's such a funny scene :D.

Thanks for watching! See you next time for chapter 3! :)

Episode 78 - The Mahjong King!

https://youtu.be/mgyEM5wefbw


Hey there folks, here comes a more light-hearted part of the arc! In order for Akasaka to get any information out of Ooishi and his pals, we need to beat them in a game of mahjong. Ok, I have no idea how all this works but it's still so good to see how the game goes lmao.

I think I'll leave it at that since not too much more happens this time around. It's just a break from how serious the arc is in general :).

Thanks for watching! See you next time to see if we can get any information out of Ooishi's pal ;).

Episode 79 - Rika's Favourite Futon

https://youtu.be/bwCxkf9rwVI


Hey all, this is the rest of chapter 3! It's time for Akasaka to learn a wee bit about the 3 major families of Hinamizawa and experience a family meeting...at least, in the sense of being told about it lmao.

Thanks for watching folks! See you in a bit for chapter 4! :)

P.S. Can you tell I'm finding it hard to be spoiler free for this arc? :p

Hey all, while Akasaka is around for a bit of this part, it's mostly about the kidnapped boy. I'll leave it to you to see exactly how he attempts his escape and what condition he's in in general :s.

Thanks for watching! See you again iiiiiin a bit! ;)

Episode 81 - The Kidnap Conclusion

https://youtu.be/Jb9vFK4UE2g


Hey peoples, we're finally heading in to attempt to save the boy! Will we succeed though? That is the question! There's so much fighting and stealth and struggling and action! Can Akasaka and Ooishi succeed? :gasp2:

Thanks for watching! There's still a little bit of the arc left that's still interesting so...we're not done yet! ;)
