    “Higurashi When They Cry: Kai”

    The girl cried when she dropped her beads in the sand.
    She looked for them for one hundred years.

    She cried because they might be in the ocean, not in the sand.
    She looked for them at the bottom of the ocean for one hundred years.

    She cries because they might be on the mountain, not in the ocean.
    How long until she starts to doubt that she really dropped her beads?

    “Higurash When They Cry” STORY
    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.
    (The series has run from 1979 to 1983)
    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.
