Higurashi: When They Cry Scores Special Commissioned Key Visual, “True” Anime Title


Recommended Posts

ZrDMVui.pngWhen you heard that the Higurashi: When They Cry – NEW anime series was announced, you knew something was afoot.


Fans of the original series and games might recognize the disturbed expressions of the characters in the glass shards, but probably the biggest surprise of this key visual is the presence of two Rikas—a younger-looking one from the original series and what we’ve seen in the new anime, but also an older-looking one in what appears to be a high school uniform.


What does this mean for the new series?


Oh, and surprise. Remember when it was revealed that the title of this series was Higurashi: When They Cry – NEW? Well, that’s not entirely true. The series is actually called Higurashi: When They Cry – GOU, a new title that the creators intentionally did not reveal to the world until Episode 2.


Gou, or 業, is a Japanese kanji that has multiple meanings and usages, but can be used to mean karma, or the fate resulting from one’s actions in past lives, based on Buddhist concepts.
