Extra arcs

Three extra chapters were included in Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei (ひぐらしのなく頃に礼, When Cicadas Cry Gratitudes?), two of which were newly created. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei was released on December 31, 2006.

Saikoroshi-hen (賽殺し編, Dice Killing Chapter?)
Saikoroshi-hen is an epilogue of Matsuribayashi-hen which takes place two months after the events of it. Rika falls into a coma after a car accident, but she wakes up in a totally different world, where none of the tragic events of the main series ever happened: Keiichi isn't in Hinamizawa, Rena's parents didn't divorce, the dam project was resolved smoothly, and neither Satoko nor Rika's parents died. When Rika believes that she cannot return to her former world and resigns to live in the perfect world for the rest of her life, she awakens, and discovers that everything was a dream created by the coma state.

Batsukoishi-hen (罰恋し編, Penalty Loving Chapter?)
A slapstick dream story in which Keiichi and the Soul Brothers fight against the girls by means of the club punishment games. This chapter was originally an epilogue titled Otsukaresama-kai which came with Meakashi-hen, but it was deemed too irrelevant and silly and was removed from subsequent chapters.

Hirukowashi-hen (昼壊し編, Daybreak Chapter?)
Hirukowashi-hen is based on Higurashi Daybreak. Rena accidentally swallows a magatama that causes her to instantly fall in love with the holder of the paired magatama.

Lol I think someone's posted this before.

It's probably going to be Saikoroshi-hen because the events in the part after the ED in episode 24 of Higurashi Kai set it up for that chapter.

You can read some more stuff about it here:

Yes, I agree with skittty. I saw this before in one of the threads... Also, I'm still hoping that the third season is not Rei....

If season three is disappointing, who knows, there might even be a fourth season to look forward to. Higurashi is quite popular and people want money.

hmmmm... i want to see rika kill XD well, anyway does anyone know when the new season is coming out? also i would be really thankful if someone could give me a link to the manga (cant find it anywhere)

Rika wont kill, she's the Queen person chick, she can't go insane, although i must say after having died a thousand deaths i probably would have gone insane naturally...

I think that i read somewar that they weren't ganna use Rie for the 3rd season... I'm not sure, but the every end of last season certainly didn't seem like the next season was ganna be a silly as what the original post discribed... most of those chapters seem pretty filler-ish

I just hope Higurashi doesnt continue to get worse, since it seems ppl agree the 1st season was the strongest..

I disagree.

The second season was pretty good. It revealed everything basically about the village and Hanyuu being added into the mix made it an even greater season.

Though a large lack of blood and fear, it incorperated mystery alot more than that of the first season. XD
