Higurashi no Naku Koro ni: Full of Loli Massacre. Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni (otherwise known as “When the Cicadas Cry” outside Japan) is a visual novel released by 07th Expansion that has been adapted into an anime.
Higurashi is famous as a visual novel that features a lot of char loli along with a story full of blood and psycho. Therefore, I give a rating of 17++ for this anime.
What’s so special about Higurashi no Naku Koro? At first glance, Higurashi didn’t have anything special apart from spitting out loli and blood. But Higurashi’s story goes deeper than that. Behind Higurashi’s story, there is a hidden mystery. From each arc (for arcs, it will be explained in the arcs section), we will be taken to collect information in the form of puzzle pieces to be connected.
