Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (When the Cicadas Cry/ When they Cry) is the name of the anime(&manga), which only follows the main story. For the manga however, in addition to the main story, there are arcs that branches from it. The main storyline is what's called the "question arc" and what I (unknowingly) started out reading is what is referred to as the "answer arc." But of course within both arcs, exist "mini" separate series which pertains to the main story and its overlying theme. Those focus on individual characters from their POV, ±. Within that story, the POV will probably shift characters.
