Episode 82 - Midnight Wandering

https://youtu.be/xOyfmZuH5XU


Hey peoples, we're back with Akasaka! We're not quite done with the arc (though there's not much left). This time around we find out what Akasaka is like after the whole kidnapping incident and why he may fancy a quick midnight stroll :s. It's not the actions of a sane person, I tells ya! :/

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit :).

Episode 83 - A Mother's View

https://youtu.be/WQGkZ1xDUgk


Hey folks, Akasaka is still not resting! He's still out and about with little Rika, meeping along the streets. It looks like the cotton drifting festival is going on so it'd be rude not to check it out, wouldn't it? ;)

The tips are really interesting this time too! Rika's mother doesn't get much showtime so here is her time to shine! Was Rika the perfect daughter or a right little nightmare? :p

Thanks for watching! The last chapter will be starting next time. See you there :).

2 episodes coming to finish the arc off! I wanted to finish it off now since these 2 eps are already made.

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

Episode 84 - Death Of A Heart


https://youtu.be/DgY3L1JintM


Hey folks, it's the last of the arc! There'll still be the all-star review too but in terms of the main story, we're done :).

It's not an ending full of joy like you might expect from how the kidnapping situation went, but it is an interesting one. We're going into the future to see how Ooishi and Akasaka are now! :D

Thanks for watching! See you really soon for the final episode of the question arcs! :eek:

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

Episode 85 - Time Killing


https://youtu.be/Vpf-cSapAR4


Hey peoples, we're wrapping up the question arcs this time around! To end it off, the all-star review thingy is less about figuring out what hints this arc gave us and more about getting to see the cast that were missing from the actual story. It's still a good laugh :D.

With that, we're done! Overall, I enjoyed this arc a lot. There were slower moments with Rika, where she got to have her time to shine, along with a bit of mystery along the way.

Thanks for watching! See you for the answer arcs! I'm gonna go ahead and guess it'll be a few months down the line :).

Eye Opening Arc


Episode 86 - Hold It! Rewind!

https://youtu.be/bB8dfpnttR8


Hey there folks, it's about time we carried on with Higurashi huh?

Here's Meakashi, the 5th arc but the 1st answer arc we've come across. This arc shows how the 2nd arc truly played out (the cotton drifting arc with Shion and Mion). It's so good to see how they really happened.

Were the murders caused by demons? The Sonazaki family? Who knows! Well...we'll know soon enough ;).

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit for the rest of chapter 1! :)

Episode 87 - My Favourite Butler

https://youtu.be/5VXEpr3OI8c


Hey folks, Shion's escape attempt from the boarding school is coming to a close! Will she make it though? Won't she need help if she's going to succeed? :eek:

We also check out our first TIPS of the arc, which is the start of a notebook, but who is writing it? Who indeed...

Thanks so much for watching! Chapter 2 is coming next! :)

Episode 88 - The Secret Life Of Shion Sonozaki

https://youtu.be/wevVIK7LRYE


Hey there folks, Shion now has to live her secret life so she'll need a bit more help; is her family the right way to go though? Mion and her uncle could easily tell her nan and then trouble would ensue! :eek:

Perish the thought!

Still, it might be necessary if she's going to have a part time job. Or she could, y'know, get a job somewhere other than where her family owns lmao. I know they own a lot of Okinomiya but still...there must be somewhere! ;)

Thanks for watching! The rest of chapter 2 is coming next! :)

Episode 89 - Twins May Vary

https://youtu.be/8ine0rynJMk


Like a good Furby, twins may vary!

Hey there folks, here's the rest of chapter 2! The main aspect of this part is that Mion and Shion get to meet and we get to see that they don't always share the same opinions...

The TIP this time is great. It showcases a bit of Satoko and Satoshi's aunt. We heard about how horrible she was before but this shows it off a bit better :).

Thanks for watching! See you next time to see how things progress now that nan knows we aren't in school anymore 0_0.

P.S. I find it interesting that an important part of Higurashi like Satoko's aunt is a part of one of the TIPS. I wonder if it'll show it off more later in the main part of the arc?

Episode 90 - Satoshi Appears!

https://youtu.be/o61rQILsuMQ


Hey folks, we're back and ready to finally meet Satoshi! We've heard about him so much throughout the question arcs but now we're in the time where Satoshi is wandering around instead of Maebara. This is gonna get interesting! ;)

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 91 - Shopping Spree!

https://youtu.be/8V38YK_ouWo


Hey peoples, Shion is getting to know Satoshi a bit better today, as Mion! A bit of shopping is mostly all they do but Satoshi isn't all that bright in that department...very much like his sister ;).

The TIPS this time is another diary, showing off Satoshi's aunt. She's just as lovely as his uncle, for sure lmao.

Thanks for watching! Chapter 4 coming next time! :)

Episode 92 - Satoshi Plays With His Balls

https://youtu.be/G5x3j-F0Y-Q


I had to name the episode that! Kinda like back at the start of the series and an episode title was about Keiichi's nuts :p.

Anyways, hi again! Today we check out Satoshi's hobby (or one of them) and meet Irie for the first time this arc :). He gives us some insight into Satoshi's homelife; we kind of already know about it all by now but this conversation sort of staples all the information together a bit, I think.

Thanks for watching! Bonus episode coming tomorrow to showcase something pretty stunning in this arc :).

Episode 92b - Dear You

https://youtu.be/vMtJQRjn-Lg


Hey folks, I thought I'd put a bonus episode up today to show off the stunning music played when you are on the TIPS screen. I've always had my headset really low for recording so haven't noticed how good it really is!

Thanks to Daniel Dawson on Youtube for pointing this track out and for sticking with me throughout all the series so far! :).

I love the xylophone (or maybe it's the wooden equivalent?) and generally how noice it sounds. I'm surprised there's such a great song for something as small as a TIPS screen lol.

Thanks for listening! See you next time when we get back to the story :).

P.S. I googled around a bit for the name of this song. I think it's right but give me a shout if it's not.

Episode 93 - I'm Not Popular, So I'll Take Shelter

https://youtu.be/3ZCAghvAGlQ


Hey folks, just a Watamote reference for this title :lew:. I really love that scene :/.

Anyways, this episode showcases Satoshi's downward spiral into madness and depression. He's not even playing with his...he's not even playing baseball! :gasp2:. Other than that though, Rena has popped up and is starting to stir up the crazy 0_0. A really nice shelter scene there. Finally, Shion has a plan to meet Satoshi even if he's hiding away. Yep, we're starting to go into crazy town :s.

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit to see what Shion has planned ha.

Episode 94 - School Is Torture

https://youtu.be/0veO6GxPKBc


Hey peoples, Shion thought to herself, "maybe I'll go to school as Mion and see if I can cheer Satoshi up!", so that's just what she attempts to do! Check out how that turns out lmao. Things are spiraling down the Higurashi plughole of doom :s.

Thanks for watching! See you next time to see how much worse it can get :/:\:/.

Episode 95 - Runaway Uncle

Hey peoples, today is all about the after effects of the school incident along with the return of a certain bodyguard :s. Also, it turns out that the uncle has had a change of heart...in a way lmao.

Finally, Satoshi and Shion have a conversation over the phone. It looks like Watanagashi is coming huh? Also: TIPS ;).

Thanks for watching! See you next time for Watanagashi! It's a real good one, as you can probably imagine :).

Episode 96 - The Curse Of Watanagashi

https://youtu.be/gMuZltIqC00


Hey there folks, with the Watanagashi festival upon us, it's time for the curse to strike! I mean, there's certainly a murder but no disappearance yet, as we know will happen. Just be patient, my friends. You'll get your curse wrapped up eventually ;). Oh yeah, there's some investigation at the corpse too! Nearly forgot about that lmao.

Thanks for watching! After this incredible bit of plot progression, we'll be seeing how the cast deal with it all next time :).

Episode 97 - Her Real Identity

https://youtu.be/edGP2ACPIQY


Hey folks, with the murder over and done with, it looks like we have detective Ooishi on our tails! Of course, Shion could help Satoshi out if only she would make a huge choice...

Also, Shion helps Satoshi to shop again but this time for something much more special :s.

Thanks for watching! We'll see if Shion made the right choice next time! :)

Episode 98 - Appeasing The Hag

https://youtu.be/ODIN_x3K_BQ


Hey peoples, today we see the consequences of Shion's decision to out herself! What will the old hag of the Sonozaki family do now that she knows of Shion's whereabouts? Will it really be that bad? :/

Also, Shion and Satoshi spend some time at the police station. For the fun, you know?

Thanks for watching! See you next time for the aftermath! :)

P.S. This episode has one of my favourite scenes in the series and I'm glad the visual novel didn't let me down. It's so tense! ;)

Episode 99 - The Vanishing Of Satoshi Houjou

https://youtu.be/fwHkHk6MQe0


Hey folks, this episode has a huge plot point that helps Shion start moving towards looney bin valley! Not only is there Satoshi-related stuff, but (possibly less importantly) Shion loses a few days due to sleep. I mean, after that traumatising event that her loving family put her through, it's no wonder she didn't want to leave the bed :/.

Thanks for watching! I'm sure Shion will go back to normal after her potential boyfriend goes missing. Sure! ;)

P.S. Wasn't it Hojo in the anime and manga? Did they change it after the VN or am I making stuff up? :/

Episode 100 - The 100th Episode!

https://youtu.be/QQ-M-DlxpRI


Hey there folks, to celebrate our 100 episode milestone, we have a whole chapter in one episode today! I would have done this anyway, but it's fun to pretend! ;)

This chapter is all about meeting Miyo for the first time this arc and having all kinds of theories for Satoshi's disappearance flying about! Mion and Shion also meet up after the big scene...this can only go well, right? ;)

Thanks for watching! See you next time for a bit of a change to the arc :).

P.S. I can't believe we've made it so far! It's a bloody huge series already and there are still more answer arcs to come! I don't know if the arcs after the answer arcs will be released on Steam (the dice killing arc, the Higurashi Rei arc from the anime etc). So much left lmao! See you soon! :)

Episode 101 - The Pervert Returns!

https://youtu.be/hAd5uw1nAqU


Hey there folks, we're going back to the present now! Keiichi, we missed ya! ;)

There's so much good about this arc! I love how we've gotten to see what made Shion go nutty in the past and now we're getting to see our main character of the question arcs make a triumphant return! Keiichi is just as perverted but just as lovable as he ever was :griin:.

Finally, Shion is having an issue. She's hearing an extra footstep. Thing is, she's happy about it since she thinks it's Satoshi following her around as some sort of guardian angel or comforting presence...

Thanks for watching! We'll see how that turns out soon enough...
