Exhibition Project of “Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (Higurashi When They Cry)” or ‘Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (Higurashi When They Cry): Calendar – TV Anime 10th Anniversary Commemorative Event -‘ Set to Open!
The event will be held at Space 634 on East Yard 5F of Tokyo Solamachi for three days from June 10th to 12th.
The TV anime “Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (Higurashi When They Cry)” is based on a dōjin (or coterie) soft sound novel (or visual novel) series produced by a dōjin circle represented by Ryūkishi07 (Ryūkishi Zero Nana). The series is a mystery horror story depicting serial cases of mysterious death and disappearance which take place in the village Hinamizawamura. The dōjin game series proved to be a huge success through word of mouth.
In 2006, its first TV anime adaptation started airing. Since then the animated adaptations of the game series have been well received over a long period until five series were produced in total, including OVAs. A live-action television series adaptation is also scheduled to premiere in 2016. Still now the work is popular with a lot of fans.
The event “‘Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (Higurashi When They Cry): Calendar” is an exhibition held by commemorating the 10th anniversary of the first TV anime series. This will be the first large-scale exhibition of “Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (Higurashi When They Cry)”. Though the details are yet to be determined, we are likely to enjoy various exhibits related to the work including the materials on the settings and plot structures and the original drawings. At the venue, event-limited goods are also planned to be sold.
The event will take place from June 10th to 12th. The general admission is from 10 to 18 o’clock. The super oyashiro time in late business hours are from 18 to 20 o’clock.
The advance tickets will be sold at Ticket Pia from 10 o’clock on March 26th. A general usual ticket coming with two pieces of mini square fancy cardboards with illustrations (6 types available in total) is 2,000 yen. A general bundled ticket coming with two pieces of mini square fancy cardboards and a special item is 4,000 yen. A super oyashiro time ticket coming with all the 6 types of mini square fancy cardboards, a bundled item, and a special square fancy cardboard is 8,000 yen.
