The fictional rural village of Hinamizawa presents Keiichi Maebara. He has come from his village to shelter from misfortunes. Keiichi is the protagonist and spends much of his time with his school friends. Life seems good for him. However, what he does not know is that Hinamizawa has its dark side. With time he discovers that his school friends may not be as good. It gets even creepier when he realizes that they will not leave him alone. As the episodes unfold, things become difficult for him. Mysterious murders get him shocked. With whack jobs that will not let him go, it becomes a horrible life for the poor boy. He is not aware of the dark secret of this village.
The Chilling Horror Anime Unfolds
Keiichi has no decisive move to make. The formerly good friends keep clinging to him. Every move is unpredictable, only tortured souls. The experience of thrillers and short arcs glues the viewer to the last bit.
The horror “When They Cry (Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni)” is ideal for lovers of spine-chilling anime. It features little girls and mysterious deaths, yet amid that, there is a stimulating experience. The adaptation of the game series keeps taking an appallingly gory turn. Every viewer wants to know what will come out of the series of unfortunate events. I tend to like the classics, but this is easily one of my favorite non-90s anime of all time.
