Be prepared to see these idols like you’ve never seen this before, as the Higurashi franchise has been known for its extreme amounts of gore and violence, with the characters often becoming murderous and psychotic. In fact, the TV drama’s producers have boasted that the show will be an “extreme experience” which is unlike anything seen on Japanese TV before

Toru Otsuka and Taro Miyaoka will co-direct the live-action TV drama, which is scheduled to begin airing on 20 May 2016. It will run for six episodes, with each episode to run for 60 minutes. It will adapt the “Demoned Away”, “Cotton Drifting”, and “Curse Killing” Chapters from the 07th Expansion’s bestselling light novels.

The original visual novel was released back in 2002, and it moved on to spawn various sequels and spin-offs, as well as two very successful TV anime, a live-action movie, a manga, and a light novel series. So, do you think these idols can pull off the YANDERE and psychotic female characters from Higurashi? Looks like we are about to find out this May.
