< report >Are side stories worth reading? I mean, I am hesitant to read them because they are not written by Ryuukishi07 but some random guys. How should I put it... I am worried they might leave an impression Ryuukishi07 not intended or drag whole Higurashi another direction Ryuukishi07 not intended. In another words, since they are like additional chapters but still part of same story, even though they might have their own stories they are part of same main mystery, so I am hesitant to read them because I am worried they might lead main story/mystery Ryuukishi07 didn't intended, they are, after all, just created from interpretation of people who read main story. Nothing spoilerous please, I am at middle of cph3 at the moment.Last modified on 2021-09-01 at 22:30

< report >Some of them are written by Ryuukishi07 (like Yoigoshi), so you're clearly out of touch.

< report >And Yoigoshi is one of most hated side stories. So dunno what to say. :D

< report >None of the side stories were written by R07 himself as far as I know. And I can't find any proof of him doing so. Even on the cover of the Yoigoshi-hen manga he is credited with the original work and supervision only, meaning he probably didn't write the script and only consulted the author about it.

< report >The credits list R07 as a writer for the original arcs and a scenario supervisor for the console port.
