Kuradashi-hen (蔵出し編, Delivery Chapter) is the second Higurashi no Naku Koro ni light novel. It is a compilation of the ideas and stories that Ryukishi07 could not incorporate into the games. Kuradashi-hen follows Nekogoroshi-henand precedes Hajisarashi-hen.
The illustrations were done by the manga artists who made the illustrations for the manga version of Onikakushi-hen, Watanagashi-hen, Himatsubushi-hen, Yoigoshi-hen, Tsumihoroboshi-hen, Matsuribayashi-hen and Saikoroshi-hen. These artists are Tonogai Yoshiki, Karin Suzuragi, Yutori Hōjō, and Mimori. Kuradashi-hen was sent out to those who bought the second volume of the manga version of Himatsubushi-hen, and the first volumes of the manga Tsumihoroboshi-hen, Meakashi-hen, and Yoigoshi-hen. One needed to send the cut out stamps in all four of these manga by a certain deadline in order to receive this special short story.
