This article is about interactive gameplay in Higurashi When They Cry.

Connecting Fragments (カケラ紡ぎ Kakera-Tsumugi, lit. Fragment Weaving) is a session in Matsuribayashi where the reader is tasked with viewing several Fragments and piecing together the information that will allow a true miracle to happen.

Some Fragments have prerequisite Fragments that must be viewed in order to unlock them. Attempting to view a locked Fragment will result in the icon becoming shattered, and the reader will be told that it has not been unlocked. After viewing the prerequisites, the broken Fragment may be viewed as normal, however the icon will stay broken.

Clearing the game once and redoing the Fragment section without breaking a single Fragment will unlock a bonus Fragment that functions as an extra ending to the story.

Fragment Order

The order presented here is just a general guide of which Fragments to view in order to unlock the extra Fragment. It is recommended that you view all of the Fragments in a single row before moving on to the next row.
