This bonus for Higurashi fans includes the usual mix of comedy and mystery that the series gave you. While you do get humor off the outfits Keiichi and his group are in from getting too greedy, there's a new mystery brought up which helps create more questions concerning the true nature of events that took place with Mion and a group of kids years ago. The group piece together aspects of the situation and flaws within speculations that took place with the deaths of a boy and his father. However, this makes things a bit debateable over what's up with the quarry site, especially with one of the mysterious men seen at some points of the first series. There's also the fact Rika seems to know what's at the quarry as she tries persuading her friends not to go investigate. The second season does shed light on who the mysterious men are and yet, I'm still curious as to what exactly happened in the abandoned town.

Regardless, watch this OAV if possible for the usual mix of comedy and mystery that Higurashi is known well for.
