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.

    • The story of Snow starts when the main protagonist Izumo Kanata visits a small village called Ryujinmura (village of the dragon god) to help his cousin Tsugumi manage a local hotel with hot springs. In the village there is an old legend: In ancient times, the village is protected by the dragon goddess. However, one day the dragon goddesses fell in love with a human, which is strictly forbidden, and this incident finally caused the village to be always covered by snow after that. The game then tells the daily life of the protagonist in the village, and finally links the story to the legend of dragon goddess.
    • Demi-humans are treated as the lowest out of all races.

      In a small village away from human settlements, Mia and her mother, who barely scraped by, were attacked by human traffickers to be sold as slaves.
      "At least my daughter could be spared", as Mia's mother handed her a photo and allowed Mia to escape.

      One day, Mia ran into the protagonist as he was managing an inn his father left behind.
      From the worn-out photograph, the location of this very inn was noted in his father's handwriting.
      "This girl's mother... There is no doubt that was father's former demi-human lover"

      I decided to take Mia in for a while.
      Her body was thin and her hair was dirty.
      I did not seek for repatriation from this girl who possessed nothing, but...

      "... I... want to be needed more... Let me service you a lot as well tonight..."
    • Unpopular with women and stuck working a crappy job, Takumi Tsuge sees no point in living. The one who saves his life is the new announcer Yuki Konoe. She publicly declares that she's single, and she's unapologetically self-assured in her handling of men and the barrage of dirty comments she receives.

      Upon seeing her live her life as a virgin who's passionate about her job, Takumi feels like he can accept his own way of living. It's because of her hard work that he's able to go on. That is how dependent Takumi was on Yuki.

      However, one day, he finds out the truth. Far from Yuki being a virgin, she has quite an active sex life. Upon learning the truth, Takumi is inconsolable, and he even finds himself starting to consider ending it all when a door-to-door saleswoman turns up at his home.

      "Hey, Tsuge. Want all your desires as a man to be granted?
      The moment I saw you, I knew you'd be a great candidate… for this invisibility serum…"

      Takumi gives the sketchy saleswoman everything he has in exchange for a drug that promises to turn him invisible. Having already given up on life, he plunges the needle into his arm without much thought.

      (It's not like it'll work anyway. There's no such thing as an invisibility serum.)

      Or so he thought…
    • Suoh Shirahane has passed Yuzuriha Yatsushiro's test to become the president of the Council of Nicaea, and the key to the final mystery is within her grasp⁠—the key that will shed light on the disappearance of her beloved Amitié partner, Mayuri Kohsaka.

      But as the cold of winter draws in on the isolated Saint Angraecum Academy, it brings with it ever greater trials and tribulations.

      After the ice thaws and the snows melt, what will be revealed?
