While these eight games make up the main series, several bonus chapters are available, including "Rei" (a fandisc collection of three sidestories that take place after the main plot) and a fourth, anime-only installment, "Kira" (a series of light hearted {{fanservice}} laden [=OVAs=] that are outside of continuity). There are also several short, manga-only arcs, usually placed before or after the main story and introducing new characters, while retaining the typical atmosphere of the series. These arcs were adapted with some new ones for the NintendoDS under the title ''Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kizuna'' (2008).

* StealthInsult: Hidden behind gun trivia. At least in anime version of ''Matsuribayashi-hen'', [[spoiler:Shion]] refuses to hand over an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AK-47 AK-47]] assault rifle to [[spoiler:Keiichi]], remarking tongue-in-cheek that they would lose a lot of time if they try to teach the latter how to use it. Considering how famous is the Kalashnikov for its simplicity and reliability, that's quite a way to speak poorly of someone's intelligence.
