ABOUT THE TRAILER
The trailer, released by Funimation, reveals and previews the anime’s opening theme song, “Analogy”, by returning singer Ayane who performed two ending theme songs for Higurashi: When They Cry – GOU.
It has now been confirmed that most of the cast will be returning, including the minor characters. The anime will premiere in July and Funimation will stream the anime as it airs in Japan. Ayane‘s 13-track Analogy CD will go on sale on July 28.
The prequel, Higurashi: When They Cry – GOU, premiered on October 1, 2020, and consisted of 24 episodes. Although the anime wasn’t a direct sequel to the previous Higurashi adaptations, the plot was highly connected and served as a continuation of the story.
Among the returning cast members are Sōichiro Hoshi as Keiichi Maebara, Mai Nakahara as Rena Ryūgū, Satsuki Yukino as Mion Sonozaki, Mika Kanai as Satoko Hōjō, Yukari Tamura as Rika Furude, Chafurin as Kuraudo Ooishi, Toru Ohkawa as Jirō Tomitake, Miki Itō as Miyo Takano, and Toshihiko Seki as Kyōsuke Irie. Yui Horie is playing Hanyu.
Higurashi: When They Cry – SOTSU was originally supposed to premiere in July 2020 but had to be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the state of emergency in Japan, and its effect on the anime industry.
