The software developer Ryukishi07 (Seventh Expansion) revealed on Wednesday that the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni franchise's first video anime series, the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei collection of side stories, will begin shipping on December 26 on DVD and one month later on Blu-ray Disc in Japan. The first of five volumes, "Hajisarashi," will be a gag story set in the municipal swimming pool. The next three volumes, which will be the "Saikoroshi" arc, will be a serious drama involving one of the story's heroines after the resolution of the two previous television series. This arc will be released between February and June of next year. The final volume, "Hirukowashi" on August of 2009, will be a slapstick romantic comedy based on a novel spinoff from the Higurashi Daybreak game, which is being ported to the PSP.

Trailer uploaded by nedmech. Release dates are at the end. (Japanese dates are Y/M/D, so if you didn't know that, don't get it mixed up... It looks like it's in 2025 otherwise. <.<)

More news from ANN:
New Promo Video Streamed

The Animate.tv Channel website is streaming a 21-second promotional video for the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei video anime series. However, the streaming video does not contain any actual anime footage. Studio DEEN will adapt Ryukishi07's (Seventh Expansion's) Higurashi no Naku Koro ni murder mystery visual novel franchise for the third time with this collection of side stories. The five volumes, which are billed as the "fateful final chapters," will ship between this December and August of next year.

I've uploaded the trailer here on CR. Just waiting for mods to approve it now...

... aaaand, it's up! Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei Promo

Looks like each episode will be two months apart... And one release per month (DVD one month, Blu-ray the next)...

Bleh it'll take a year to finish.

Meh, another year of waiting for it (gonna watch once its complete, dont like to wait a whole month after a cliffhanger :P)

hopefully its as bloody as the first, only requires more fanservice and it'll be THE anime of the century!

Rei is based on the fandisk, meaning it's basically just fanservice-y stories.

And it's not really bloody...

IMO, the "point", is the message that's being conveyed. Gore and mystery and stuff are just plot devices...
