For Higurashi Daybreak Portable

Hello, Ryukishi07 here.

What kind of image do you hold towards Higurashi? I'm sure what most strongly represents the story for you is Rena screaming "Liar!," or it being a story of horror and suspense. However, if you're really familiar with Higurashi, you would know that half of the story is slice of life--that it has a lively, bouncy side to it. Higurashi Daybreak is a slapstick tale that showcases a day in that lively slice of
life that you're all used to.

If I may be so formal (lol).

This work gives you a glimpse into the world within the action game Higurashi Daybreak. Have you all played Higurashi Daybreak--or "Hidebu"--as you fans call it?

You can choose two of your favorite characters to team up, and battles unfold in various locations within Hinamizawa--truly a hoot! You can play it on PC or PSP, so definitely check it out if you haven't already! I also like the game, and play it almost every day.
My favorite characters are Ooishi (Grappler) and Satoko (Traps)! I also love Shion's parry throws. Facing someone one-on-one and getting that parry throw gives me such a rush!

Everyone should absolutely experience this world through the game after enjoying themselves at Comiket!

Chiha Ayami and Maku Iguma[]

Hello~ I'm Chiha Ayami, the one in charge of the art this time! I've been excitedly playing Higurashi ever since my friends told me about
it, saying "this is super scary and interesting! I thought Hanyuu and Natsumi's scenes in the PSP versions of Daybreak were
particularly cute, and was happy to see them hangout together again in the world of Higurashi.

I'm looking forward to seeing the world of Higurashi (and Umineko too, of course!) grow wider from here on out✩.

Thank you very much for reading!

I'm Maku Iguma, the one in charge of the story! I especially love the music, I've been listening to it for a looong time, ever since Twilight Frontier released their version of Hidebu (lol). This time, I wrote a what-if story about what would happen if you put two characters together that you wouldn't think would be able to pair up.

I thought about how, similar to how Hanyuu had an important duty, maybe Takano was just acting tough to protect her wish. And I thought, "it'd be nice to be able to show both the strong and gentle aspects of these two powerful characters." I'm full of gratitude towards 07th Expansion for giving me the chance, as well as to you, dear readers.

Special thanks!
