Hi! So, I am starting to be a huge fan of the When They Cry series! I have watch the anime version of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei, and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Gou. I am also playing through Umineko and just started the Answer Arcs. I also plan to play through Cicona some time.
What I'm wondering is; is there any merit playing through all the Higurashi games if I know what happens? I don't mind reading through stuff, but I feel knowing what will happen takes the fun out of it... Also, I'm kinda broke so I don't really want to spend money for no reason... I know they probably explain things better in the vn, but is it worth it?
Should I buy all of the higurashi vn's, or just pick a few chapters to read (such as Hanyu's backstory), or just read none of them? Thank you for the advice!!
