Episode 102 - While She Dances

https://youtu.be/YUltoK30Ouo


Hey peoples, the Watanagashi Festival has arrived (again)! This time around, we get to explore the ritual storehouse, like back in the cotton drifting arc. Shion sure has a different perspective on it all than Keiichi once did though, many moons ago (in terms of when we played through that arc lol).

Bad Miyo! Bad!

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

Episode 103 - A Night With The Hag

https://youtu.be/x69SeLVNhqs


Hey there folks, today's episode is a corker with tonnes of plot progression! With a family party all finished, Shion decides to stay over the Sonozaki residence for the night. If only the night could have been free of events...

Thanks for watching! See you next time to see how Shion handles what she has started :s.

Episode 104 - A Good Whippin'!

https://youtu.be/HlF0Fbv3YKM


Hey folks, today we're checking out Shion's revenge on the hag! Granny might be a bit out of it (cough) but she still deserves a good whippin' for being so evil! These ain't no ordinary whips though...

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

P.S. That well is creepy as crap. It's almost as bad as in The Ring :/. Luckily, no one will be climbing out of there and giving people 7 days to live. No...this is a whole different sort of horror.

Episode 105 - The Hangover

https://youtu.be/qyoLjEYOfjw


Hey there folks, Shion is ready to go to school and check on Keiichi; is he still ok or has he been demoned away? She also thinks she had better add an ounce of terror to Keiichi's life but it looks like Ooishi has other ideas ha.

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

Episode 106 - The 2nd Family Head

https://youtu.be/VjCbgff0XwY


Hey folks, today we have a long one all about Kimiyoshi's ordeal and what Shion plans to do with him. Honestly, I feel that this part is a bit of filler, but with the odd bit of important stuff sprinkled in. Still, it needs to be seen to understand the rest! :)

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

Episode 107 - Blue-Haired Slashing

https://youtu.be/y26L0jXRDdk


Hey peoples, today Rika needs to borrow some soy sauce from the Sonozakis. Laughter ensues! ;)

This is one of my favourite scenes in the anime and I'm sure it's equally as shocking here for first timers. Rika was always one of my favourite characters in the series so it's great for her to finally get the spotlight. It doesn't seem to happen a huge amount up to this point :s.

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit to see if Shion can get away with all this :sad3:.

Episode 108 - Return Of The Ladder!

https://youtu.be/E_DlEOCY3H4


Hey peoples, today we're checking out the setting up of a ladder! We met this ladder a good load of months ago now but finally he returns! I think he's getting big-headed for being called back for the part :/. That'll be his acting downfall!

Oh, there's a search party out for Satoko and Rika too, I guess. Keiichi is getting paranoid too, thanks to our Shion. I guess those things are important but our ladder just does a better job at acting and has more stage presence so...

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

P.S. I've finished recording now and it turns out that there'll be 112 episodes by the end of the arc :).

Episode 109 - Protect My Sister

https://youtu.be/2CD-Zpawylk


Hey peoples, Satoko has apparently been hanging out in the torture chamber for a bit, since she was invited over to the Sonozaki house. Typical! Lots of stuff going on there this time around. It's one of the more gruesome parts of the games so far ha.

Also, it looks like Keiichi has figured something out. More on that next time though!

Thanks for watching! See you next time for Keiichi's plan! :)

Episode 110 - Save Our Friend

https://youtu.be/TqEtHG_77Rw


Hey there! Today, we're gonna see how Rena and Keiichi attempt to save Shion/Mion! Could they actually do it and bring about a happy ending for the remaining characters? :eek:

Also, there's only one sister left by the end of the episode. RIP Sonozaki sister :(.

Thanks for watching! See you next time for the final story episode of the arc! :)

Episode 111 - She's Not Quite Done Yet...

https://youtu.be/FP53L1hjahY


Hey folks, Shion/Mion/the demon decides she's not quite done yet and does a little bit more after she made sure she didn't get captured in the torture chamber. She might be nuts but she ain't stupid! ;)

We also get a little bit of a look at what the cops thought after the events and how they probably let it all end in this arc.

Thanks for watching! One last episode coming next where we get to see what the creator himself has to say for himself :).

Episode 112 - Eye Opening

https://youtu.be/OoVzIOQ0vsU


Hey peoples, here's the last of Higurashi until the next arc is out on Steam! It's been quite a long arc so I'm ready for a bit of a break :s.

Anyways, during this episode, we get to talk to Ryuukishi07 in the staff room, which gives us a few interesting questions to ask ourselves :gasp:.

Thanks for watching so far! I hope to see you again in a few months time! Until then, other LPs are on the go :). See you soon!

Arc 6: Atonement

Episode 113 - Reset The Clocks!


Hey there folks, we're finally back with the 6th arc of Higurashi! This time around, we're playing through Tsumihoroboshi or the Atonement arc!

This arc will be all about Rena and how she is affected by the "curse of Hinamizawa" ;). It's funny because this is actually the answer arc for Keiichi's question arc and they don't seem to completely coincide, unless I'm missing something? Like, the twins' answer and question arcs had huge portions of the game that were extremely similar. Oh wells, that's not really a bad thing. In fact, this is my favourite arc of the series (well, this or the Abducted By Demons arc). Either way, good times incoming! I can't wait for you to see what's in store 0_0.

Anyways, in this episode specifically, we get a class-wide club activity in the name of a massive water gun fight! These kids really take their games seriously ha!

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! Maybe this time things will work out alright...

P.S. I realise there are some technical issues. I think I need a new computer because it has been bugging out all over the place. I can't justify buying one for a few bugs and the ability to record the odd VN though right now. I hope it isn't too bad and you can still watch well enough to read the text; it seems good enough for that to me anyway :s.

Hey folks, today we have an episode that shows how Keiichi and Rena get on well and how their parents come into things a little bit. It's ever so heart-warming :). We also find out that we're heading to the pervy Angel Mort...next time! ;)

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

Hey folks, today we're checking out the punishments at Angel Mort! There's also much more going on but I'll leave it there. I will say though, that there's a new character with her own avatar! Things are gonna get exciting ;).

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

Episode 116 - Rena's Happy Place


Hey peoples, today we're moving onto chapter 3, which showcases Rena's special kind of happiness. I love getting to know Rena a bit more after all this time and really getting to see some of her backstory. There'll be more on that next time :). I'm also loving actually being her as the main character now; it's an amazing change of perspective.

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

Episode 119 - Rina The Badger


No, not Bodger the Badger!

...I'm so old :/.

Though if Bodger was this sort of badger, it would have been a much more interesting show...

Anyway! Today Rena heads into a rather rough looking cafe and has one hell of a discovery! One that'll flip-turn her life upside down and it'll be how she becomes prince of a town called Bel-Air.

Oh where did my childhood go :'(.

Thanks for watching! xD

Episode 121 - Rena's Revenge


Hey folks, Rina may be down and out but Teppei is still around! Time to see if Rena and her father can manage him...

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

P.S. Apologies for the pretty sporadic episode releases lately. I've been trying to build more of a real life where possible (something I've been working on for a good half a year now) so that's taking a bit of priority. Hope you understand :s.
