Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Meguri (ひぐらしのなく頃に巡 When the Cicadas Cry Cycle) is a manga series that acts as a continuation to the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Gou manga. It was serialized on Young Ace Up from October 15, 2021 to January 26, 2024.

On July 1, 2023, Yen Press announced they would be releasing the series officially in English under the title Higurashi When They Cry: MEGURI.[1]

Synopsis[]

Based on Higurashi Gou and Sotsu, it's the manga version of the answer arc!

After overcoming the repeating June of 1983, Rika Furude has proactively decided to live in a future she has yet to see, but... why are these repeating tragedies happening, and how are they occurring? The curtain rises on a new chapter revealing a girl who tries to deceive fate. Countless choices are made, cycling through destiny, as she reaches for an answer.

Promotion and Release[]

Meguri was first teased at the end of the Gou manga's final chapter, claiming to have "answer arcs that are different from those of the TV anime, reconstructed by Tomato Akase based on Higurashi Gou and Sotsu".

After the release of Satokowashi Chapter 3 part 2, Akase tweeted that it would mark a gradual divergence from the anime's plot and ultimately lead to a different ending.[2]
