Higurashi Sui: Kageboushi Spoiler-Free General

Spoiler-free general discussion topic for the console-exclusive Kageboushi arc of Higurashi When They Cry.

In the interests of protecting those who are reading Higurashi for the first time, please tag any references to anything beyond Chapter 5 of Higurashi and outside works with the [spoiler] tag, providing sufficient context in parenthesis.
We take spoilers very seriously, and ignoring this rule could potentially result in a ban.

If you’d like to freely discuss this chapter in context of later chapters, please use our Full Series Spoilers topic instead.

While this topic will serve as a general hub for discussion of the Chapter, if a conversation ends up flowing in a certain direction (eg. You start talking about the series as a whole rather than this particular Chapter), don’t be afraid to continue it in your own topic! Keep the “reply as linked topic” button beside each post in mind.

Just want to let everyone know that the English fan translation of Kageboushi has been released!

Not sure if I can link to it directly, but you can find the necessary files and installation instructions on the Higurashi Console Arcs page on GitHub. The patch requires a copy of Himatsubushi. It essentially installs all the files on top of Hima to convert it into these new arcs.

This is the answer arc for Someutsushi, so make sure you read that arc first. The patch includes both arcs and you get to choose which one you want to play when you hit the Start button.
