"Romantic Comedy Higurashi Style!"
5 stars"

If you have read volume 1 and 2 of Higurashi then go and read this you reaction will be – huh? As you start volume 3 you will notice that everything that happened in the last 2 volumes didn't happen. Characte personalities are still the same and the same basic story about the Cotton Drifting feastival exists just what the horror instore for the characters changes. With that said you do not have had to have read any volume of Higurashi to understand what is going on in this volume. Volume 3 story is that Keiichi goes to the Angel Mart resturaunt and finds out “Mion” is working there. However she claims that she is actually Mion's twin sister “Shion”. Keiichi dosn't believe her and finds himself attracted to “Shion” and “Mion” acting weird. This volume dosn't have a lot of the horror that Higurashi is famous for but it sets the scene for the next volume. If you have watched the anime you will be pleased to know that it features new jokes and is not an exact copy of the anime. Written by Ryukishi07, the man who wrote the original story. and with beautiful art that does the series justice this is a must have for Higurashi and horror-comedy fans!

You've already met Keiichi Maebara and his mischievous friends in the Abducted by Demons Arc. But Oyashiro-sama's curse is poised to strike anew in Hinamizawa village. When Keiichi spots tomboy Mion working at a maid caf?, he can hardly believe his eyes! But it's not Mion after all - it's her identical twin sister, Shion. Keiichi's never heard of this 'twin sister' before and suspects it's just another one of Mion's pranks. But through Shion, Keiichi is able to see a quieter, more feminine side of his best friend, even if it is all an act. As Keiichi spends more time with Shion, however, Rena grows more accusatory...
