(Copypasted from the Higurashi wiki)
As usual, Ryukishi07 and 07th Expansion created the original story, and Toshifumi Kawase is again supervising the scripts. Hideki Tachibana will be the new director. The official Twitter account for the media production company Frontier Works announced on Friday that a new original video anime series, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kira, is launching to mark the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni horror franchise's 10th anniversary. The new series will launch on July 21, and a preview site has opened for the new anime.

The first volume will adapt the original software's Batsukoishi-hen storyline, while the remaining volumes will have all-new original stories. There will be limited edition volumes with deluxe bonus extras, as well as regular edition volumes. The limited edition volumes will each have a "magical box" illustrated by Tomoyuki Abe (the character designer of the new anime), a tentatively titled "magical disc" CD with the ending theme and mini-drama, an original booklet with collaborative comics by famous creators, and a card for mail-away present. Buyers of all the volumes can receive a tapestry.

I'm not really interested in the extra Higurashi arcs, its mostly just weird fetishes and fooling around, the punishment games are funny though. When you take the horror out of a shojo horror series its just a shojo.

Agree with CR, but thanks for posting this Skraal! Maybe some other people in our community would like to read it.

Higurashi Kira just came out in Japan two days ago, so I thought that I might as well post more some more information.

Here's the trailer:


And some more information:

Sadly it looks to be mostly more fanservice, like Rei was, but there might be something good in there despite the trailer...

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kira 425px-10


I just finished watching the first episode of the season. It was mostly fanservice, with all of the characters fantasizing about punishment games for everyone else (even those that aren't club members) With the highlight being a parody of the phone booth scene from the first arc. The OP and ED are forgettable. There are hints at a greater plot going on in the background (such as the discovery of "true hinamizawa syndrome"), but I still don't really have any high hopes for this season. I guess that's all that I really can say until the next episode airs in September...
