Higurashi: When They Cry – SOTSU is the follow up (so there may be spoilers) for the mystery horror Higurashi: When They Cry – GOU. It was delayed due to COVID-19 but now has an English-subtitled trailer and a Funimation release date of July.
Geek Native covered GOU because of controversy around the title. The series is based on an old RPG/visual novel, and fans thought it had concluded. Then a reboot was expected, but that reboot turned into a continuation in a planned surprise. However, that meant some viewers got hit by spoilers.
SOTSU is the contuination of that contuniation! continuation
Here’s how Funimation describes the psychological horror;
New kid Keiichi Maebara is settling into his new home of peaceful Hinamizawa village. Making quick friends with the girls from his school, he’s arrived in time for the big festival of the year. But something about this isolated town seems “off,” and his feelings of dread continue to grow. With a gnawing fear that he’s right, what dark secrets could this small community be hiding?
