The new anime is based on the short story “Higurashi Outbreak” by Ryukishi 07 (07th Expansion), the creator of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. The director of Higurashi no Naku Koroni Rei and series script supervisor Toshifumi Kawase returns for this new storyline as well. The cast is also filled with familiar voices, with Souichiro Hoshi, Mai Nakahara, and Satsuki Yukino returning to their roles.


The setting of “Higurashi Outbreak” is the familiar Hinamizawa village from previous stories. A mysterious virus outbreak in 1983 causes the village to be sealed off, leaving Keiichi Maebara and Rena Ryugu behind to deal with the situation. The original Higurashi no Naku Koro ni was a visual novel software centered on murders that occur during an annual festival in a quiet rural village. Two anime series, several video anime projects, two live-action films and manga adaptations soon followed.
