I can’t wait for the sequel to be translated. And while Ryukishi is a fantastic writer, he’s an utterly terrible artist.

Many of them have deep flaws, some could even be called despicable. The first game, titled Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni: Higanbana is the kind of story that can’t be enjoyed higabnana playing it in a hurry as that would make you unable to notice all the details of Ryukishi’s brilliant writing and understand the messages the chapters were meant to convey.
But unlike Higurashi and Umineko, I actually like the other aspects of the visuals. Dai Ichi Yoru is a truly remarkable experience. Am I really supposed to buy that a teacher not only tolerates bullying right in front of him, but even engages in bullying himself to some extent? It’s the most thought-provoking ending I have ever seen.
The only complaint I have is that there are a few typos. First Oyruwas released on August 13, at Comiket But if this sounds like it might appeal to you, then by all means, give it a try.

Let’s just say that I found it enjoyable for what it is. But while I really liked the direction it takes near the end, I can see some people hating it.
Don’t have an account? That said, it won’t appeal to everyone.
While most of the chapters are quite well-paced unlike Higurashi and Umineko, this chapter starts off a bit too slow. Most of the humans and former humans are remarkably multidimensional and unique. It’s an extremely dark and twisted masterpiece with a very intelligent message.

It’s clearly darker and more serious than Higurashi and Umineko, though I wouldn’t call it one-sidedly depressing by any means, as some of the chapters have fairly happy endings.
Story While Higanbana is still strongly influenced by the horror genre, otherwise it is somewhat different from what Ryukishi is known for. Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni is a sound novel made by the doujin circle 07th Expansion. The character designs were originally designed by Nishieda. System I can’t really give this a rating, since there’s not really much to say about the system in a linear sound novel.
It’s clear that a lot of effort went into this. The unique color palette is quite stylish and while Umineko’s filtered photographic backgrounds all look like really bad oil paintings, the filters used for Higanbana’s backgrounds give it a somewhat surreal vibe.
It lacks interesting characters, the writing is a lot more plain than in the other chapters, and there just aren’t any memorable moments.

Doujin circles are basically the Japanese equivalent of indie developers. Just in case you somehow found this review without knowing about these terms, I’ll explain them sqku you. The only problem I have with it is that I slightly disagree with one of its messages.
No matter how much I think about it, I can’t decide whether what happens in this chapter is good or bad.
