The opening for Higurashi: When They Cry – SOTSU will be “Analogy” by singer/songwriter AYANE, and features in the above trailer.
Funimation previously announced they will be streaming SOTSU as it airs in Japan from July. 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?
