If you’re a fan of Higurashi, you’ll definitely love this. Umineko no Naku Koro Ni is slated to be released this summer, and it seems that Famitsu.com have recently posted a promotional video for the anime.
Umineko no Naku Koro Ni is translated to “When They Cry – Seagulls”, and is somewhat similar in respect to Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni, which is also roughly translated to “When They Cry – Cicadas”. Done by the same person that worked on Higurashi, Umineko’s setting is about the 18 people whom step foot on the remote island of Rokkenjima in October of 1986, which triggers a mysterious chain murder case.
For the record, Umineko has two promotional video thus far, but the first one didn’t contain any actual anime footage or anything of the sort. Those that were involved in the production of Higurashi will also be working on Umineko. Seiyuus such as Daisuke Ono, Marina Inoue, Yui Horie and Sayaka Ohara will also be involved in the anime.
I bet you guys aren’t so worried about the technical details, so just jump right into the link provided below to view the promotional video!
Umineko no Naku Koro Ni will be making it’s way to your televisions/screens this July.
