The drama CD adaptation of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni was produced by HOBiBOX with Ryukishi07 serving as supervisor and drawing cover art for each CD in the main story. Some drama CDs also came with published TIPS booklets.

Release Information

The drama CDs for the first 6 arcs were distributed by WAYUTA and in collaboration with Geneon Entertainment. The first 4 arcs were rereleased under HOBiRECORDS.

There were also two append discs released. Append Disc 01 contains TIPS from Onikakushi and Watanagashi in audio format, cover art and a bonus story The Family Head's White Day (当主のホワイトデー Tōshu no Howaitodē) by Fujitaka, and a discussion between Ryukishi07 and voice actress Kaori Mizuhashi. Append Disc 02 features cover art by Chinatsu Kurahana and TIPS from Tatarigoroshi, Himatsubushi, and Meakashi in audio format.
