No one can beat the Higurashi franchise when it comes to psychological thrillers and murder mysteries.

Higurashi: When They Cry franchise has revealed a new spin-off manga called Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Oni scheduled to launch on February 25, 2022.

The plot is set in the Taisho Era in the 1920s, where the final demon will awaken and bring about a new danger in Hinamizawa.

The upcoming manga, written by authors Asahi and Ryukushi07, has been described as the ‘missing link’ in the story by Futabasha’s Monthly Action magazine.

The manga will also revolve around Oryo, the head of the Sonozaki family, one of Hinamizawa’s Three Great Families.

The new manga sounds even more impressive and terrifying than the previous ones, and I can’t wait to see what it has in store.
