The Holy Terror
Such a brutal ending. One of the saddest ones so far.

If you're familiar with the Higurashi series then you are aware that this is the second part of a story arc that takes place before any of the murders at Hinamizawa takes place.

This part is a little bit different with previous book.
Different point of view makes me need time to adapt to the story. The story itself is a little bit too short I think. The scene when phone cord is cut is the most chilling scene I think, but it's not as terrifying as scene in other book.

How sad!! I love Rika... And, naturally, so many bad things happen to her. I really love Akasaka as well, so... Overall, this was emotional for me. Art is cute and expressive as always, storytelling is good, etc. etc.

Rating R
Mention of guts being pulled out of a small girl while she is living (Not shown), and other violent acts.

Another interesting arc. No really all of them have their moments, creepy and even more creepy. And yet the mystery is also really good. Or suspense. Whichever it is. Anyway, this one is about the same.

Of all the higurash arcs ive read this one is the one i disliked the most, first i didnt like that it was a new character fro mout of town and the art style is terrible, Rika does not look like a sweet cute girl and Mion looks bad too but besides that ,the plot itself is lacking to be good Higurashi arc

This one was ok. Nothing major really happened in this arc. It had potential but I feel like it all just fell flat.
