Higurashi When They Cry: Cotton Drifting Arc

The year is 1983 and the place is Hinamizawa, a sleepy countryside village far from the rest of civilization. Keiichi has just moved to the town with his parents and quickly makes new friends in Rena, Mion and a few other girls. But soon Keiichi discovers that there's a hidden, brutally violent and murderous past to Hinamizawa that its residents keep secretive to outsiders.

So this is the first manga I've read in a while but I have to say it didn't leave me entirely satisfied. The story was mediocre yet enjoyable.
