FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES
"HIGURASHI - WHEN THEY CRY" AND ANIME SEQUELS

HOUSTON, JULY 9, 2015 – In a move certain to shock and delight North American anime fans, Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce the acquisition of the acclaimed murder mystery series Higurashi – When They Cry, as well as the previously unreleased sequel series Higurashi no Naku koro ni KAI and the companion Original Video Animation series Higurashi no Haku koro ni REI. Noted for their uncanny and unsettling use of traditionally cute and charming imagery to tell a story of blood curdling horror, the HIGURASHI series begins as a young transfer student moves to the tiny and picturesque rural town of Hinamizawa. It is only after he settles in and starts to make friends, however, that he begins to learn some of the secrets that the townspeople have kept hidden from the outside world. Including the fact that every year, after a popular festival, someone is found murdered.

Based on a hit series of Visual Novels by Seventh Expansion (Okamikakushi - Masque of the Wolf, Umineko), animation production for all three series was supervised by Studio Deen (Fate/stay Night, You’re Under Arrest, Maison Ikkoku, Hetalia) Higurashi – When They Cry and Higurashi no Naku koro ni KAI, each running for 26 episodes, were directed by one of anime’s most noted female directors, Chiaki Kon (Devils & Realist, Golden Time). Direction for the five episode Higurashi no Naku koro ni REI and Series Composition duties for all three series was handled by Toshifumi Kawase (Beyblade, Giant Killing,) while music for all three series was composed by the prolific Kenji Kawai (Ghost In the Shell, Patlabor, Fate/stay Night, Ranma ).

Dates and other details for DVD, Blu-ray and digital distribution of all three series have not yet been established at this time, but all information regarding these releases will be made available in the near future.

If they're dubbing the seasons that haven't been dubbed then this is wonderful news; otherwise it doesn't change much of anything. Would like to see the Outbreak OVA licensed though.

That fanservice Kira OVA may as well be forgotten with time.
