Higurashi When They Cry Hou – Ch.2 Watanagashi


  • Language: English

 

The 58th year of Shouwa, early summer It’s June, and the summer heat has arrived earlier than it does most years. By day there are crickets, and by night there are cicadas.

 

We’re in Hinamizawa, a small village in the countryside. There are fewer than two thousand people here. But every year, there is an event.

 

This event is a mysterious death.

 

On a certain day in June, someone dies, and someone else goes missing. The series of deaths is connected to the upheaval surrounding the dam construction project. A murder case that was covered up is being reenacted. Is it a conspiracy? A coincidence? Or perhaps a curse?

Someone who was supposed to be there isn’t. Someone who wasn’t supposed to be there is.

 

Someone who was alive last night is dead now. And someone who is here right now isn’t alive.

 

So, there is no way to avert tragedy. There is no choice but to give up.

But don’t give up.

 

Only you can stand up to this.

    • Many problems lie ahead for society in the 21st century. The best youths in the country are gathered at the super-elite Amakawa Noble School where they are trained to lead us to a brilliant future. They are led by five bishoujos known as ‘crowns’. One day, the leader of the crowns Saku was the target of a terrorist attack. She was saved by Shinri, who was invited to the school as the sixth crown. However, he is at odds with the school system.

    • Hajime is just like any normal guy who wants to fall in love, except that he collects charms from shrines all over the country with the hopes of becoming popular. The self-proclaimed goddess of marriage Urara suddenly appeared before him and told him that if he didn’t find his fated partner within a year, then he will remain a virgin for his entire life! His future had become very unstable because some of the charms which he had collected were actually real. Just like eating too many sweets would lead to a stomachache, his obsession with charms of marriage had resulted in the opposite effect.

      He was eager to get a girlfriend and avoid a solitary life, but he didn’t want to put in much effort to do so. Fortunately for him, Urara showed him three girls who were potential partners and also taught him how to tell how close their fate is to him. It is similar to the idea of the red string, except it is displayed as a number instead, and the goal is to reduce the number to zero.

      The prime minister’s daughter Nanami, popular idol Suzuna, and Japan’s greatest detective Yukari. All three of them have their own eccentricities. Thus begins his relationship with girls whom he had previously no ties with.
    • A young man is dazing off while working the night shift at a convenience store, when a girl stops in to ask for a meat bun. The one next to her appears to be her boyfriend, and after doing their shopping, the two of them link arms affectionately and take off. Just when the young man is thinking how nice it would be to have a girlfriend, a pair of girls in ninja cosplay show up.

      The girls just stare at the shop goods without buying anything in particular. Even worse, they're even chatting about ninja techniques or something along those lines. When he calls out to them to prevent theft, it becomes apparent that they have no money.

      Despite suspecting that they might try to steal something, he gives in and buys a bento for the two desperately pleading girls.

      The life of that young man is turned upside down from the moment of his encounter with the two young women.

      A roommate life with two female ninja, one a Chuunibyou, and the other a fanservice machine, is about to begin?! And so begins a new love story with two ninja girls!
