A continuation of the Higurashi: When They Cry – GOU anime was announced last month, with Higurashi: When They Cry – SOTSU set to explore the mystery of Hinamizawa further when it premieres this July. Ahead of that, an extended version of the teaser trailer just made its way to the official KADOKAWAanime YouTube channel.
Even though it’s just a few seconds longer, hardcore Higurashi fans will no doubt find something to freak out about in the video below.
Funimation previously announced plans to simulcast SOTSU as it airs in Japan. Here’s how they describe the series:
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?
