This has to be one of Square Enix most gut pulling work the awesomeness of this is great if your a horror fan you should read the manga or watch the anime.

Also has anyone else seen this ?

I'm personally more a fan of the anime, but the manga does make certain scenes even more disturbing with the amount of detail they show. I would also say the facial expressions are more effective in spots.

Not sure if this is the same series or a spinoff one but is this the one with Beatrice?

The one with Beatrice is Umineko no naku Koro ni (When the Seagulls Cry). It's a spiritual successor that references this with certain characters as it takes place in the same universe.

I started reading this in Yen+. I noticed that they started releasing double sized volumes later on. I lost track of where I was in the Arcs, because I didn't see the very small volume numbers are actually on the very top of the spine. I like the way they different arcs were drawn by different artists.

Ummmm the one with beatrice is aculluy kinda a different universe of Higurashi ( When they cry ) its done by the same person but they have almost nothing to do with eacher beside some characters reappering in it.

It's the same universe in a broad sense since Lambdadelta was responsible for the events of Higurashi, causing the endless loop Rika ended up in. This in turn gave birth to Bernkastl, which is just an amalgam of all the Rikas that were brutally murdered, making her justifiably evil.

Really how did you learn this ? Because that's new to me. Because well I watched both of the animes not all the way with the when seagulls cry one but still they seem like they were just different reailtys to me.

Well this is all stuff in the visual novel and what the writer said, so as far as the anime is concerned (and probably the manga too), they're separate with similar looking characters.

Thanks for clearing this up for me! The reason I was asking: last year, I imported the (very large) Fullmetal Alchemist Chronicles book that wrapped the whole thing up nice and neat. One thing I enjoyed in this was other SE (and some who were not) Manga-ka tributes to Ed and the gang. One that caught my eye was a fight picture of Ed and Beatrice, which said that it was from the When They Cry series. Had the chance to import the manga series for this and the two volume side story (?) but wasn't fast enough.


Hope this gets an NA relese, the artwork was beautiful!

The picture was very well done. I'll have to scan some of these and post them here. Toboso (Manga-ka for Black Butler) and Rumiko Takahahi (Ranma 1/2 and Inuyasha) both did their takes on Olivier Armstrong, which were pretty sweet too. ^_^

My favorte anime Higurashi ( when they cry ) ova

Higurashi Kira is the name of the ova serise.

And after I watched that ova I was like what the heck ?! What did they do to it ! They made it not Higurashi and everyone was out of character. I mean I understand it's a ova but they should at least keep the character personilty in ticked.

Anyway anyone else feel the same about that.
