Higurashi When They Cry Hou - Ch.4 Himatsubushi


  • Language: English, Japanese

 

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.

One day, by chance, Makoto witnesses the school "playboy" Hasegawa having sex with a girl classmate. Discovering a kind of thrill in the act of watching, Makoto continues to spy on him.

    • "The Promise"
       
      Lycoris wasn’t always a dim-witted, scythe-swinging servant of darkness; she was a well-known agent in the Rubina: a holy organization of skilled monster fighters and vampire slayers. In this narrative, we go back in time and explore the circumstances of how her and Aoi came to be formally paired together as “buddies” in the Rubina. On a deeper level, we hone in on a particularly gruesome event that would come to shape their eternal love and respect for one another—a bond which can never be broken.
       
      "Homeworld"
       
      Dernière, one of the many worlds that exist in different dimensions. As holders of a special power known as "life force", Dernièreans were blessed with vast energy and extended lifespans, and they lived in glorious prosperity. However, even for them the day of ruin approaches.
       
      Taking place thousands of years before the events chronicled in Libra of the Vampire Princess, catch a glimpse Dernière’s tragic history and the lives of those caught in the middle. You will meet Aconite Embroche, the determined leader of the Bebel’s sixth commando unit, and his smitten lieutenant, Iris Pumila. Together with Galega Officinalis, a lecherous and gifted dollmaker, they use their superhuman powers to combat the infected life force from spreading and consuming their homeworld.
    • Kusanagi Shuuma is just an ordinary boy...
      Until the day he is suddenly abducted by a mysterious girl named Iris. She reveals to him a hidden secret about his birth...
      Coursing through his veins, Shuuma has a special kind of blood – vampire blood passed down from his progenitors. Iris is known as a "ringleader" vampire who also has this ancestral blood. Her destiny: to "awaken" Shuuma.
      In his attempt to flee her clutches, Iris pounces on him to finish the embrace! Luckily, at the very last moment, the keepsake ring given to Shuuma by his mother emits a blinding light that interrupts her vicious attack.
      Shuuma breaks free and escapes from Iris, but soon realizes something inside him has gone amiss. Could he have become an odd, partially-turned vampire? Now, many girls are entering his life from many directions and complicating the situation. To make matters worse, he is plagued from an overwhelming impulse to suck...
      ...their blood.
    • Our hero enters a school for training. He had a weird feeling about the strange place as soon as he
      passed through the gate, and then a lone girl called out to him. She led him to a classroom... and as
      soon as he entered, he was attacked and assaulted.

      This is a mysterious school that's not on any map -- nor does anyone seem to have heard of it.
      Can our off-track hero find his way out? or will he be trapped in the school forever?
    • Tachibanaki Keisuke, a young man in his first year as a full-fledged member of society.
      While the company he works for is a small one, it's the job he always wanted to do and his life is pretty satisfactory.

      But even though he's both motivated and has much to aspire for, he's now living alone for the first time in his life, and it's becoming a bit exhausting.
      It's then that a certain thought crosses his mind...

      "If only I had a girlfriend..."

      One day, his childhood friend, Matoi Ayame, arrives at his doorstep.
      Ayame's parents had to move abroad for work, and Ayame had to stay behind because she had college entrance exams coming up.
      Her concerned parents - who are old friends of Keisuke's family - ask Keisuke to let her stay with him.

      And with that, their life under the same roof begins. As the two of them are drawn to each other, their relationship blossoms to something that's beyond old friends...
