Anime Information

Anime Description

After having moved to the seemingly peaceful mountain village Hinamizawa, Keiichi Maebara quickly becomes friends with the girls from his class. Together they pursue club activities and enjoy their time among the village’s natural surroundings. It never gets boring, as shortly after Keichi’s arrival Hinamizawa’s biggest festival, the Watanagashi, takes place. During the Watanagashi, all villagers let their sins and worries symbolically float down the river.

Something about the idyllic life doesn’t seem quite right, however, and Keiichi soon starts to harbour concerns. What kind of sins and secrets are the villagers—and maybe even his new friends—trying to hide?

Higurashi Gou” is not a remake of the anime released in 2006, but tells new stories. The added “Gou” means “karma.”
