Ryukishi07’s panel at AnimeExpo isn’t until Sunday, but some 07th Expansion news has popped up earlier than expected. The US anime company Sentai Filmworks just announced today that they’ll be re-releasing the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni anime.
The first season’s been released before by both Geneon USA (R.I.P.) and Funimation. However, the season season (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai) had yet to get an official US release (though as mentioned in the comments, it has been released in Australia by Siren Visual). I assume Sentai will be releasing Kai, since they also announced the OVA Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei which follows it. That’s a nice addition; two of Rei’s arcs are just random fanservice, but Saikoroshi-Hen (Dice Killing Chapter) adds a lot to the series.
